It is important to note that when you come to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ you possess spiritual power beyond measure.
It is important to know where we come from and do a reflection on our lives. The things we achieved that we deem important or significant. The past glories we had and that sense of accomplishment and fulfillment. The questions is, what significant things are we doing in the present? What are the things that define us and what are the contributions that we make in the Kingdom of God that will echo in eternity? We need to take a step back and do serious reflection.
"What worked in the past and how can I maximise the glories of the past and transform the present and the future" - Quote Papa G.
My dad said to me when I was 14 years old, "Son, if you never influenced someone`s life for Jesus Christ, and you die, your life would`ve been a waste"
I pride myself on 2 principles:
1. Add Value to people`s lives
2. Make a difference wherever I go
What didn`t work?
What didn`t work was the fact that at times I wanted to do things on my own and I didn`t trust Him. I trusted myself, my abilities, my connections, my resources and He had to take a backseat. I didn`t always stick with him, but He always stuck with me. It`s in the didn`t work that I`ve found what His agenda is for my life. It`s in the didn`t work that He elevated me to a place and amongst a people that I could be used by Him for His Honour and Glory. Many times we find our message in a mess and our testimony in a test and we must see Christ in our crisis.
How can we improve?
We improve by giving Christ His preeminence in our lives. We need to crown Him both Lord and Saviour. We improve by adopting an attitude of gratitude concerning His redemptive work in our lives. We improve by allowing the Holy Spirit to guide us and teach us concerning His ways. We improve by accepting Him as the only source of our salvation and vindication.
Do all the good you can, to all the people you can in all the ways you can.
Show them Jesus!!!
