Kingdom Culture- "With Everything"
"Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…" (Ecclesiastes 9:10, NIV).
If you desire to reflect a Kingdom Culture with our lives, the question that we need to ask ourselves is simply this, "Are you giving everything?" Seriously, are you being faithful & fruitful right where you are today? Are you doing everything the very best with your ability? A lot of times we think, "As soon as I get a better job, then I´ll start working harder." "As soon as I get over this sickness, then I´ll trust God & have a good attitude." "As soon as my spouse changes, I´ll put some serious effort into my marriage." Or, "As soon as I have more, I'll give more... time, money, and so on."
But really, God wants us to do everything with all of our might no matter what the circumstances & regardless of what we have to offer. He wants us to be faithful & fruitful today! He wants us to have a good attitude and do the right thing even when the wrong thing is happening to us. If you´ll keep doing the right thing with your "everything," in spite of the circumstances, then you are sowing a seed for God to bring a harvest of His goodness into your life. You are opening the way for Him to bless and prosper you in every area of your life! Jesus told us to, "count the cost." (see Luke 14:25-33) The Apostle Paul told us to, "never be lacking in zeal & passion when serving the Lord." (see Romans 12:10-12) If the little boy who gave his lunch to Jesus could speak to us today, he would probably remind us to hold nothing back from Jesus! Because that boy gave his entire lunch (loaves & fishes), Jesus fed multitudes. If we give God our "everything," not our leftovers, we will always have more than enough left over. (see John 6:1-15)
Enjoy this new song that we will be introducing this month here @ Freedom Life and make a decision to live your life by offering yourself to God with a "with everything" Spirit! In doing so, you will please God and bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth!
