KINGDOM OF GOD

THE KINGDOM OF GOD

When God calls you, it does not mean He has commissioned you.

Commissioning by God comes after He has trained you; taught you what it means to be a minister; how to hear His voice; how to deal with people; how to feed from Him and to subsequently feed those you lead.

When you launch into your place of assignment before you are commissioned, I assure you, you will not build God’s Kingdom but only yours.
It is inevitable that the kingdoms of men will always war against the Kingdom of God. Any kingdom built by a man is built on ungodly principles, the lusts of the flesh and the pride of life.

For example, a man of God might want to start a ministry so that he can attract large crowds for selfish gain. 

That is a man seeking to build his own kingdom.

A man building God’s kingdom understands that the large crowds represent more than just numbers, these are the lives of men and we account to God for every soul. When we see big churches we are not supposed to merely see numbers but responsibility for the part God wants us to play in these people’s lives.

When Christ commissioned the disciples, he sent them out for the sake of men and not for their own selfish desires. 

Beloved saint, the ministry of Christ is about the lives of men. We build His kingdom when we raise Him up and He in turn draws men to himself. (John 12:32).

*GOLDEN NUGGET*: Commissioning by God comes after He has trained you; taught you what it means to be a minister; how to hear His voice; how to deal with people; how to feed from Him and to subsequently feed those you lead. When you launch into your place of assignment before you are commissioned, I assure you, you will not build God’s Kingdom but only yours.

*PRAYER*: Loving Father, I thank You for this wisdom. Every day You teach me to understand that the gospel is not a business venture or a selfish endeavor. It is not about me but all about You, for history can only be Your story. In all that I do, I seek to build Your Kingdom and not my kingdom; to expand Your realm of influence and not my influence. I see people with the same eyes that You see them; lives to account for; blood never to be shed; a responsibility! I yield to this understanding. In Jesus' name. Amen.
