If you were to have a week off from whether school, work or anywhere else, what would you do and how would you manage your time?
As you answer these questions it is very important to know that God's plans are way ahead of our own and will always be perfect. He does not do anything partially, He finishes what He starts and fulfills what He promises! What a great example of someone who does not procrastinate! We need that!
Now, have you ever thought about His motivation? Do you even know what God's motivation might be?
It's enough to just flip through some pages in the Bible and you'll find the answer! IT'S HIS LOVE TOWARDS US! Look at the patience He had towards the people of Israel and even when they were buried, He sent the prophet Ezekiel to raise them up from the dead and come back to life! That's mind-blowing!!
That story in Ezekiel chapter 37 plus Jesus' sacrifice are more than enough for us to see what motivates The Lord!
The awesome thing is that our hearts were designed by Him, yet because of sin our hearts have become evil, deceitful and no one understand them better than God alone! So the main question for tonight is... Are our hearts matching His?
You can say whoa hey that's impossible!!! No it is not, in fact, if God's motivation is people and their salvation then why do you think He has given us this as the second most important commandment? Well because it is not impossible, it might be hard yes! But remember that nothing is impossible for God!
The second is this: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no commandment greater than these." Mark 12:31
Now, going back to the beginning of this teaching, if you had that week or that month off, would you do something for someone? Because I mean who doesn't love vacation and isolate from everyone for a little while?
But did Jesus give us this as an example? He never rested and whenever He isolated from people was to pray! So He really never stopped serving not even when He was dead on those 3 days!
Amazing! So... Would you take this a great example of serving & applying it to your daily life?
Let's Love people and pray for them, there's a time for everything of course and there's time for vacation as well, yet don't stay comfortable for too long! The devil doesn't rest and our battle is not against flesh but against the principalities of this world! (Ephesians 6:12)
You are here not just to be successful or achieve your dreams, you are here because God wants to accomplish His will through your life! The rest of the things will fall into place as you start giving your dreams, talents, gifts, availability & resources to The Lord!
Your motivation shouldn't be the likes, the subscriptions or the followers you get, but Jesus and His will!
Are you ready? Cause I am!
Jesus is Lord!
