His Cause! My Cause!

“The Son of Man is going to be delivered into the hands of men. They will kill him, and after three days he will rise.” 32 But they did not understand what he meant and were afraid to ask him about it. Mark 9:31-32

The disciples did not understand what Jesus was alluding to, however, amongst themselves they were busy arguing about who is the greatest much like the competition and argument in Christian circle today.

So many disciple of the gospel today are not conscious of the season we are in, the handwriting on the wall written on walls all across the world seem not to mean anything to the Church establishment. Why am I of this opinion you may ask! How else can it be that we (The Church) are busy building structures, investing in esthetics, and bickering about the mundane, while souls in millions are going to decay even while they live?

We all want to be great, we want to be the first, be hailed, celebrated, feel important, fulfilled, but how can we be fulfilled while the very purpose for which we came into being and called forth goes to rut?

It is time for each and everyone, for we all have influence, not only the Pastors, preachers, bishops, but folks on the pews, mothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, grandparent, teachers, everyone saved by grace are to serve the cause of Christ Jesus. The first shall really be the last and the last shall be the first.

Leadership, influence is about serving a cause. As a wife and mother, sister, aunt and friend, I am called to be of service. I must always ask myself, “what can I do to ensure the future of my kids are pleasant? What does my friend, nephew, neice, or even co worker need? Am I available, willing and ready to serve? For my kids, I invest in their today, serve their need, guide and guard them so that they can be who God created them to be.

Leadership, position, motherhood, fatherhood is not just to be a title, it is a call to serve a cause much higher than yourself. I remember a time I was overwhelmed by life’s event and then a teenager I was serving was acting up. I was so overwhelmed that I cried unto the Lord. I said here is this gift you gave me to care for, what would you have me do! Please step in and guide my hands, emotions and everything to do it right and that was it. God showed up big time!

I knew all along that it was a call to serve, and acknowledging this before God invited Christ to work in me to will and to act in order for his good pleasure to be fulfilled in the situation – Philippians 2:13

Father help us to genuinely serve your cause in spirit and in truth. May we yearn and thirst for your cause – the salvation and well being of all souls you present all around us in Jesus mighty name. Amen.

Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!

Standing In The Gap!!!

great commission Exodus 32:11 -14 Then Moses pleaded with the Lord his God, and said: “Lord, why does Your wrath burn hot against Your people whom You have brought out of the land of Egypt with great power and with a mighty hand?12 Why should the Egyptians speak, and say, ‘He brought them out to harm them, to kill them in the mountains, and to consume them from the face of the earth’? Turn from Your fierce wrath, and relent from this harm to Your people.13 Remember Abraham, Isaac, and Israel, Your servants, to whom You swore by Your own self, and said to them, ‘I will multiply your descendants as the stars of heaven; and all this land that I have spoken of I give to your descendants, and they shall inherit it forever.’”[14 So theLord relented from the harm which He said He would do to His people.

Are you a child of God! A disciple of grace, deacon, Pastor, Apostle? Are you standing in the gap for the Lord’s inheritance? Are you pleading with the Lord for your fathers’ house?

What are you doing to maintain an altar unto the Lord? Are you offering a pure and Holy sacrifice for the Lord’s pleasure? We all have a part to play in this journey of destiny – fulfilling God’s purpose here on earth and hereafter.

The Lord said to Mose in Exodus 32:10 Now, therefore, let Me alone, that My wrath may burn hot against them and I may consume them. And I will make of you a great nation.” 

Most of us at this point would have jumped at that opportunity, to become the Lord’s chosen people instead of God’s original intention to Abraham and his seeds after him. Thank God Moses was not like most of us these days with our ideology of me, I and myself.

It is time we get off of our high horses and start doing the work we have been called into in spirit and in truth. No more pretense folks. Let us be true to ourselves and glorify God in all facet of our lives.

Remember that creation is waiting for the manifestation of the sons of God. Romans 8:19

Shalom!
