12 Feb 365 Days of Mission: Day 7 ~ The Radicalis Day 3
Today was day 3 of the Radicalis conference hosted by Saddleback Church and Rick Warren. Got a lot out of what was shared by Rick in his closing session. It really gave me a lot to digest that falls inline with what God has been saying to me. Give more refinement to my 365 Days of Mission and 365 Days of Love. I feel more life change decisions being made very soon. Do not know yet what to do will all God has been bringing my way these last few weeks.
Day 3 has further equipped me for both my 365 Days of Mission and Acts of Love, giving more focus to them and a deeper understanding of God is calling me to do.
Here are some of my notes:
Is anyone going to be in heaven because of you and your investments? ~ A question everyone needs to ask themselves daily!
“Jesus doesn’t care about politics, or making America great again. Jesus cares about people (their salvation).” And so should we, we should not be about getting someone to join the Tea Party, but join our heavenly Fathers table for the wedding feast.
And I tell you, make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings. Luke 16:9
In a sense that is use our money to buy people for the Kingdom, that is spend our money for the work of the Kingdom, giving to the poor, helping others, however means necessary to reach others. Gain them as a eternal friend by being God’s instrument in their coming to faith in Christ.
We should ask our selves are you spending our money for the Kingdom, or worldly junk that will burn.
The greatest thing you can do with your life and money is to get other people into the Kingdom.
We must get angry about what Jesus got angry about
– When the needs of children go unmet
– When the suffering of others is ignored
– People who should know better (i.e. religious leaders)
– People who took advantage of the poor
– Getting rich on religion
We must sacrifice for what Jesus sacrificed
– If you only preach freedom from hell, but not freedom from sin, you’ll get people who are saved, but don’t want to be holy
I feel some very great life-changing decisions in my life soon, God is differently working in major ways in me right now.
