The gifts of the Spirit aren't little trophies to show everyone how spiritual we are. They are tools for getting the job done and if your not on the job then why do you need the tools?
Maybe that explains why we don't see a lot of the power of God in some church services, or in our personal lives. You know that supernatural power of God, that distinguishes us from the rest of the world. The love that never fails, the compassion that addresses the needs, the resurrection power to bring life wherever we go.
Matthew 28:19 Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
I love this verse, if you were wondering what your suppose to be doing, well here it is.
First and foremost GO!
You know the word "go" is mention 1544(kjv) times in the bible. That’s a lot. Faith is only mentioned 247 times. Love a 311 times. Sometimes it feels like we are on the starting line waiting for the gun to go off so we can start the race. Hey guess what the gun has gone off - GO!
Go do what? Make disciples of all the nations.
It says we are to make learners of the nations. Hold the phone! Are we reading that right? We are commanded to go and make disciples of nations! In other words, Jesus tells us that we are to go out and live in such a way a Nation will call us and ask us "how do you do that?" Well that takes the evangelism course to whole new level? Not to mention the life group for business owners? Sometimes we think way too small.
Well how are we suppose to do that?
No matter what your vocation may be, you could be a school teacher, a plumber, a mechanic, a janitor, a doctor, a lawyer and even a politician you can live this life with the power of the Holy Spirit. You will live in such a way nations will want you to come to their country and show them how you do it. God gets incredible amount of glory and honor with this.
Where do you start?
Hang out with people doing it! Come alongside people that are "going and influencing." Get some "influencers in your circle of friends."
Are there people like that?
Here is a walking talking example of this.
Let me introduce you to Sharon Liebowitz from Majestic Destiny ministries.
She is orginally one of those corporate Human Resource gurus, that God told to “Go! Influence Bolivia." She went and over the past decade has been doing Foster Care God’s way. She had done it in such a way another country got wind of it. Chili has called up Sharon and has asked her to come and teach this Foster Care to them! She is living and breathing the “GO” in such a way that nations want her to teach them. What an inspiration.
She is definitely a THUG (a sister Totally Humble Unto God). Connect with her on Facebook here.
She is our Bolivian Connection, in the Salvation Syndicate.
It is a privilege and honor for her to come alongside "Sisterhood" and share her wisdom with us on how to be influencers. The best part is tomorrow she will be posting an article for us!!
What vision has God given you that seems overwhelming?
