TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Change your walk to start taking small steps to help someone else. Even the smallest gestures make an impact on others. Showing others whose you are by your love, is walking like Jesus would walk.
Because of our rugged individualism and “can do” attitude, the American mission field is a tough nut to crack.
Say what you will, but I would argue the toughest person to reach for Jesus isn’t the bushman in Africa or the devout Hindu in India. The most difficult person to win for Jesus Christ that I have come across is the leathery, hard-working American man who puts in 40-60 hours a week and pays his taxes.
Good luck trying to convince him. He doesn’t believe he needs anybody for anything. He doesn’t need the kingdom of God because everything he has, he got completely on his own. He’s never had a kingdom mentality and doesn’t understand what that is.
Yes, that makes the average American very difficult to reach for Christ.
When anyone comes to Christ, they come admitting they are completely dependent on Jesus for salvation – that He is God and they are not. This is the very first stage of a kingdom mentality.
So then it is not of him who wills, nor of him who runs, but of God who shows mercy. – Romans 9:16
Once God lavishes you with His mercy, you understand that you are valuable, privileged and part of something much bigger than you. You are a part of something that will never end, and you are in! In the family. In the Kingdom. In His presence. Just in!
Do you need a kingdom mentality? Do you need to know you are in and that your life matters in the grand scheme of Heaven’s story?
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO COMMIT TO A KINGDOM MENTALITY. KNOW THAT YOUR LIFE MATTERS TO ALL OF HEAVEN AND START MAKING A DIFFERENCE FOR CHRIST ON EARTH.
