This message is the continuation of yesterday’s message
4. A heart that loves God would open ‘the door’ for the spirit of destiny to work strongly in our lives and bring us to recognize God’s plan in His heart, which is a ‘mandate’ that God gives for spiritual father.
Through our devotion for God, our hearts that love Him so much will be influenced by the heart and plan of God, we will arrive at a point where we can begin to see the mandate that God gives to His church through our spiritual father. A passionate heart for God gives us desires to be involved in the ministry that our spiritual father does. We start to see the Kingdom of Heaven, because we start to give ourselves to do His kingdom’s agenda.
A heart that loves God will set us free from the love of self, love of money and love of the world. There is no magnet / ‘attraction’ between us and the world anymore. But vice versa, the love of God, the love for His Word, His House and His desire will be so vibrant in our lives.
5. A passionate heart with love of God, along with accurate understanding as a result from our devotion in the apostle’s teachings, would make ‘AGREEMENT’ and ‘SYNERGY’ of CHRIST’S BODY
We will give ourselves to answer God’s calling and walk together in the journey of corporate’s destiny. Agreement will happen between spiritual father, and also between spiritual brothers and sisters. I remembered the word in Amos 3:3.
(MSG) Do two people walk hand in hand if they aren’t going to the same place?
(NKJV) Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?
When I meditate on this verse, I found that unity comes from the heart that loves God, it makes us walk orderly and accurately in the same direction. A heart that is focused to the will of God makes a CONNECTION and SYNERGY between spiritual parents and spiritual children as Christ’s Body. Synergy is achieved because there are hearts that love Him wholeheartedly!
I found that synergy and unity indeed have happened and existed in this world. However, the synergy that has already existed in this world is based on greed and bondage by Mammon. Their ‘meeting point’ is money/ Mammon!
Now I increasingly understand why God keeps pouring out the work of His Word and Spirit which continually removes the love of money, the world and the love of ourselves in us. Because that is what makes us able to synergize with our spiritual family and always live in the UNSHAKEABLE KINGDOM!
If we removed the money/Mammon from the world, their synergy will be destroyed! However, when money is removed from the synergy of Christ’s Body, it won’t matter, because it is based on the heart that loves God and based on covenant!
6. A heart that loves God will lead us to find our true treasure!
There is a covenant in every spiritual children and spiritual father, to leave the old life that’s useless for the Kingdom of Heaven, and to answer to a higher and nobler call.
Luke 12:34 (NKJV) For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also
Suddenly I realized that when Elijah ‘destroyed’ the option to go back to his old life, it’s definitely because he has found his treasure! The success and physical wealth are actually not a treasure! But the true treasures are God Himself, the chance to serve Him (The King of kings) and to do His plan!
A heart that loves God will make us unite in the spiritual house without being picky in choosing ‘division’ in the ministry that we feel suitable with our skills/ interest. The principle of unity without being picky can be applied by having a heart that loves God, because the motivation is not based on our interest in a certain division.
So whatever division that God gives, we will function in that ministry division joyfully, because we receive a privilege to do something for the Person we love so much, and there is nothing to do with our interest. I want to keep guarding the heart that loves God in my life! #ILoveGod
