“He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?”
Micah 6:8 ESV
In many Christian traditions, this is Holy Week, the last week of Lent—a time of somber reflection leading up to the crucifixion of Christ.
Because we know the glorious end of the story—that Christ is risen as the “firstborn among many brethren” (Romans 8:29)—we tend to focus less on the journey to that Resurrection than the outcome.
This week, I encourage you to be mindful of the cost Christ paid for your Kingdom citizenship.
“For He was in such agony of spirit that He broke into a sweat of blood, with great drops falling to the ground as He prayed more and more earnestly.”
Luke 22:44 TLB
Let’s not take for granted that grueling road to the Resurrection.
And with that in mind, let’s not waste one ounce of victory, peace, freedom, healing, provision, joy, and wisdom provided by that sacrifice.
“His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness.”
2 Peter 1:3
God does not want you ignorant of all you’ve been provided in Christ—He does not want His people perishing “for lack of knowledge” (Hosea 4:6).
He is calling you to a life of wisdom and understanding. He is calling you up to a higher place of walking in circumspect humility alongside of Him where He will show you how to fulfill His perfect will.
It if for this reason I founded Kingdom School of Ministry.
When you attend this week-long intensive, you’ll receive the equipping and impartation you need to maximize your Kingdom potential.
Secure your seat NOW to join the class of 2018 and be counted among the growing family of KSM alumni around the world.
Now is the time to “grab hold of eternity” just as Paul instructed Timothy. (See 1 Timothy 6:12.)
There is nothing more important in this Christian walk than firmly grasping hold of the Word of Truth for our lives.
“Therefore do not be foolish and thoughtless, but understand and firmly grasp what the will of the Lord is.”
Ephesians 5:17 AMP
Christ gave His life for you and I so the light of life would not only shine forth in our hearts, but would also shine forth into a dark world: “In the same way, let your light shine before others” (Matthew 5:16 ESV).
Do not remain ignorant about God’s best will for you.
You have the light of life—and that light is knowledge and it is Truth. If there are dark places in your life or immediate sphere, learn how to expertly wield the sword of the Spirit—your divine light saber!
“For God, who said, ‘Let light shine out of darkness,’ is the One who has shone in our hearts to give us the Light of the knowledge of the glory and majesty of God.”
2 Corinthians 4:6 AMP
Everywhere I go I meet people who are wandering aimlessly and feel powerless to change the course of their lives. They have given away their personal power and have become like the living dead sleepwalking through life.
This should not be so! Now is the time to wake up to the call of Christ—to rise up with the the power of the Resurrection that resides in you by His Holy Spirit. (See Romans 8:11.)
“When we are raised up out of the water, it is like the resurrection of Jesus. Each of us is raised into a light-filled world by our Father so that we can see where we’re going in our new grace-sovereign country.”
Romans 6:4-5 MSG
We are people of light (see Ephesians 5:8 & 1 Thessalonians 5:5). As such, we are called to make the most of every opportunity that we are afforded—to be good stewards of our gifts and talents on behalf of the Kingdom.
Are you making the most of the light God has imparted to you, or have you let it go dim?
This week, as we prepare to celebrate the victory of the Cross and Resurrection of our Lord, I urge you turn up the dimmer on the light of life in you.
“I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”
John 8:12 AMP
Make plans now to join us for KSM in July! You will walk away with a clearer vision of what you’re called to do and how to do it.
You will be “rooted and grounded” with the understanding you need to make the most of your one precious life. I will show you how to expertly cultivate the field of your potential so you will produce the kind of harvest that impacts generations.
“You shall be rooted deeply in the soil and bear fruit for God.”
2 Kings 19:30 TLB
Wake up to the Resurrection life at work in you! Don’t sleepwalk through life any longer!
Join me in Atlanta July 15-21, and I promise, your life will never be the same!
“Don’t waste your time on useless work, mere busywork, the barren pursuits of darkness. Expose these things for the sham they are. It’s a scandal when people waste their lives…
Wake up from your sleep, climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light!”
Ephesians 5:11-16 MSG
