I am still sharing comments from the Dr. Myles Munroe event I recently attended.
Remember, Jesus gained the victory over sin and death at Calvary. And once you accept Jesus in your heart as your personal Savior, you gain victory over sin and death too.
Once you are sure that Jesus will present you faultless to God because of His love for you: start looking for how you can bring glory and honor to Jesus’ name.
1. Learn what is your purpose in life.
2. Create a vision that is derived from your purpose.
3. Seek to fulfill that purpose.
4. Know that whatever purpose you are fulfilling is not for you. Your work that you do or leave behind is your gift to those in your and in future generations.
I recently attended a Dr. Myles Munroe event. Dr. Munroe encourages one to think about his or her purpose, pursue it with passion, and then know when and follow-through on passing the baton to your successor while you are alive.
So once you are sure that God will present you faultless because of His love for you: ask God what is your purpose in this life? Seek God for an understanding and then by all means start the process for living out that purpose.
For while Dr. Munroe said much that I still need to digest, one principle I quickly agreed to is this: What a great tragedy to stand before God having successfully fulfilled the wrong assignment! 😦
This is Passion Week in the Christian Religion. During this week many Christians hear about the events that were the make up Jesus’ last week on the earth.
He gives many parables during this week– as a warning to the Jewish leaders and to prepare the people for his departure from the earth. One of the concepts that Jesus repeats in His teaching is that of the son or the person who does the will of the father is the one that is rewarded. For example in Matthew21:38-31 (KJV) is it stated,
“But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work today in my vineyard. 29He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went. 30And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not. 31Whether of them twain did the will of his father? They say unto him, The first. Jesus saith unto them, Verily I say unto you, That the publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.”
Here Jesus is warning the Jewish leaders through a parable to be like the first son: change your mind and do as the father asks.
And so I put the same concept before you: If you did not think of Jesus as your personal Savior — change your mind. I Corinthians 15:3 says that he is one who came to” die for our sins”.
Know too, that you will according to Holy Scriptures, get no opportunity to change your mind after you die. ( Hebrews 9:27 “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment”. )
Life is not a dress rehearsal — We only get this life to believe and life for Jesus. Take advantage now!
I was thinking about how confident we are in the Lord.
1. We gain confidence that God has saved us.
2. We gain confidence that we are His children. — forever and ever through all circumstances.
3. We gain confidence that He will present us faultless no matter what we’ve done.
Take this a step further and be confident that God will use us in His service and that where He sends or whatever He urges us to do: the assignment can be done!
May we say like Evangelist Smith Wigglesworth is reported to have said, “ God has never sent me anywhere that I am too late !”
