TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
Be prepared to give God all of your life. It’s time to step out and get your hands dirty by helping others who are down in the dumps. God loves your faithfulness.
DANGEROUS TO THE ENEMY
Since my first life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ, I remain a non-apologetic drop-dead, sold-out Jesus Freak. Yes, I’m the Christian the devil warned you about. I am unafraid to admit I want to use whatever influence I have to direct people into looking for Jesus.
To do that, I don’t have to be “churchy.” I often talk about secular things and this seems to trip a lot of people up. You see, I don’t see a line between the sacred and the secular. All life belongs to God and He can be seen in all of life.
What am I getting at? This: ministry is only effective when you are willing to serve the people you are ministering to. You will be called into uncomfortable places. You will get dirty because people who are digging a hole to hell are covered in filth. Help them put the shovel down!
The ability to make a difference in somebody’s life does not come from being the meanest, smartest or loudest. It comes from a willingness to serve.
If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant to all. – Mark 9:35
Jesus served the disciples – a group of total knuckleheads who spent three years with God Himself, yet didn’t understand a lot about who He was or who He wanted them to become. They went to weddings, funerals (though Jesus generally raised the dead), held babies, ate, drank wine, fished and just lived life together. Jesus wasn’t churchy and we shouldn’t be either.
To serve others, we must be real. Be the Christian the devil warns against. Get dirty and serve the way Jesus did.
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO SHAKE THE GATES OF HELL. SERVE THOSE WHO LIVE IN DARKNESS AND SHOW THEM THE LIGHT. MAKE THE DEVIL MAD AS HELL – I DARE YOU!
