When we do God’s work, it is not our work; our ministry, it is His work; His ministry. When we surrender to His Will, His Ways, and His plans for us, it is His Spirit of ability that does the work in and through us.
We are God’s vessels, needing to be consistently filled in God’s Holy Spirit who empowers us to fulfill His purposes in and through us in the places we walk. We have a mission to pursue in Him.
We have a Holy Calling, purposes that are beyond sight, to go forth, preaching and teaching His Word, making disciples of All people groups and entering into participation with and in Him to do the works our Father has prepared for us to accomplish in and by the Spirit’s ability.
It is not we that do the work, otherwise, it will all be rubbish, no matter how successful one looks, or how many people are in the church. For it is a man that looks on the outward appearances, but it is God who sees the heart, and it is He that knows the deep inner workings of a person.
There is no one who can hide anything from God, for he knows All of what is hidden in our hearts. He sees our motivations. He sees our intentions. He sees our secret thoughts, searches our attitudes and knows how we treat everyone.
Our focus is not in desiring numbers, it is not about revival, nor is it about signs, wonders, or miracles. Our faith walk is not about having a title, it is not about having charisma, it is not about our personalities, nor is it about us at all.
This life in Faith is All about Living, Breathing and Being Christ in and through the Holy Spirit who empowers us to do all things by His ability.
The life of Faith is about dying to ourselves in the deepest core of our being. It is about wanting the best in and for others. It is about giving from the overflow of the Love of Christ in our hearts to all. It is about walking the narrow path.
This does require a cost, for He calls us to live to a higher calling, a higher purpose, a higher realm, and that is only found in allowing Him to transform us completely at every level of our souls, so that we becoming loving towards all.
It is about living a life of Obedience to what He has called and chosen us to accomplish in His Power, not by our own devices or in our self made methods
The life of Faith is ALL about JESUS! It is about people! It is about service. It is about Holiness. It is about Righteousness. It is about doing the right thing that we know in our hearts to do, then doing it. Our faith life is about allowing the Holy Spirit to be loving and embracive of everyone, so others will know our God is alive when they see this real love being walked out in our lives.
Living the life of Faith is about servant hood to Christ and to others, following the paths He directs, guides and leads us in.
If it is not Him directing, it is of ourselves, and it is of vanity and self-directed motives.
This Faith Life is not about living in the greatest city. It is not about transferring a move of God from one part of the world into our part of the world. It is not about being the greatest preacher, teacher, or having the largest church.
Living by Faith is about allowing God to be God. Faith is that we become All in Him, desiring to do so having; honor, integrity, honesty, sincerity and bearing witness to His truth and authentic love and allowing His love to be our motivation.
Our Holy desire is to Be all of Whom God has called us to be and to have our entire Identity be formed in Christ’s Righteousness as this is walking the narrow path of His cross
Living by Faith is a Death to who we are, as our Father releases us towards living a spiritual life in Whose we are.
Let us walk in the transformed God Hearts as the men and woman who are looking forward to our union with Christ in being His Holy Bride!
