When we repented of our sin and put our faith in Christ, we fell in love with Jesus! We became addicted to His love, to knowing Him more closely and abiding in His presence. If we ever lose this intimate love, we lose everything. Jesus is our passion and our priority! Everything else comes in its place under Him. We understand that intimacy with Christ must be a continual pursuit, and that the evil one will try his best to distract us from this place. When we are intimate with Him, no sacrifice is too great.
Passion for people
God’s compassion for all who are captive by sin, sickness, the powers of darkness has been given to us by Christ (John 17:26). The closer we get to Jesus, we get impacted by His heart for people. Jesus was moved and so should we be. This should be the motivation of ministering life to people (Matthew 9:35-36).
A Godly character must be the foundation of anything we build if we want the building to last. Whether we are building our relationship with God, marriage, family or ministry. According to Romans 5:4 proven character results in a mature hope that does not disappoint.
Walking life and ministry together with covenant brothers and sisters is the model that Christ has set for us. We see this firstly revealed through God’s nature (Colossians 2:9), God’s wisdom (Ecclesiastes 4:9-12) and also in Christ’s sending of His followers (Luke 10:1, Mark 6:7, Acts 15:39b-41). What has united our hearts together and what will keep our hearts united is God depositing His heart in us and pouring out our hearts to God together. We have witnessed the words of Charles Finney to be true: “Nothing tends more to cement the hearts of Christians than praying together. Never do they love one another so well as when they witness the outpouring of each other’s hearts in prayer.”
Strong Prayer Life
The Scriptures tells us God makes His ministers a ‘flame of fire’ and that the fire must keep burning. In the secret place is where History Makers are made! Leonard Ravenhill express it really well: “No man is greater than his prayer life. The pastor who is not praying is playing; the people who are not praying are straying. We have many organizers, but few agonizers; many players and payers, few pray-ers; many singers, few clingers; lots of pastors, few wrestlers; many fears, few tears; much fashion, little passion; many interferers, few intercessors; many writers, but few fighters. Failing here, we fail everywhere.”
Identity and Responsibility
“In Christ we become God’s sons, man’s servants and the devil’s masters.” John. G Lake. The life and ministry of Christ continues through His body today until He returns. Throughout His earthly ministry Christ expressed this mandate to His followers: “As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you.” (John 20:21). “Your are the salt of the earth”, “You are the light of the world” (Matthew 5:13-14). We are Christ’s ambassadors (2 Corinthians 5:21). This is both a high honor and also a great responsibility. We have a mandate to reach the unreached with gospel of the kingdom. (Matthew 24:14; Romans 10:14; Romans 15:20-21).
God’s goal in molding and shaping us is to reproduce His Son in and through us. God’s kingdom is advanced and sustained through making disciples.
“Go and make disciples of all nations…” Matthew 28:18
“Imitate me, just as I also imitate Christ.” 1 Corinthians 11:1
“Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:9
