We would have reached some milestones in our faith. We would have broken barriers in our goals. We have planted, watered and seen our seeds grow, We have grown in our Faith, Love ……
BUT who is the We? Is it you and your disciples or you and your leaders our brothers and sisters? On a permanent note, It is (personally) "My GOD and I !"
1. God Of Glory
To this he replied: "Brothers and fathers, listen to me! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was still in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran.
Over the years our God has truly been a GOD of Glory, He has blessed us in ways more than we could ever imagine, The church has grown from strength to strength.
2. Chosen and Appointed:
2 To this he replied: "Brothers and fathers, listen to me! The God of glory appeared to our father Abraham while he was still in Mesopotamia, before he lived in Haran.
34 I have indeed seen the oppression of my people in Egypt. I have heard their groaning and have come down to set them free. Now come, I will send you back to Egypt.'
GOD has always called men and women alike to be his messengers (just like Abraham and Moses even though there were many obstacles in their paths) with the heart to do his will.
We have to believe that at any cost because when HE calls us, HE will never let us down. All we have to do today as Christians is to believe that we are Chosen and Appointed.
3. Train and Ordain
45 Having received the tabernacle, our fathers under Joshua brought it with them when they took the land from the nations God drove out before them. It remained in the land until the time of David,
46 who enjoyed God's favor and asked that he might provide a dwelling place for the God of Jacob.
47 But it was Solomon who built the house for him.
The time is also right for us to pass down the torch, as you have witnessed The church has done awesome, but we need more leaders, more fired up men and women to do his will.
Right from Moses to Joshua, David to Solomon, Jesus to The Apostles… People have been taught to continue the good work, Brothers and Sisters it is time we become those men and women who can learn and grow.
4. Even greater things
This is what Jesus has Promised us…
I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.
This is just the start, a beginning for us to see how God can take us higher, maybe we feel that we have not done anything to be a part of this Victory. The time is still right to take a fresh stance to renew our guard and focus on how GOD can use us to do Even Greater Things.
