October Letter: Our Month of Growth
Greetings in the Matchless Name of our Lord Jesus Christ by whom we have received the mandate to embrace, embody and exemplify the Vision, the Virtues and the Values seen in the life of Jesus and the Apostles.
We believe that every believer is called to model and manifest Christ to their world. This is because we understand from the Scriptures that the goal of the redemption is to see Christ reproduced or formed in the believer. See Colossians 1:24-27; 1 Corinthians 1:26-30.
Galatians 4:19 NKJV
My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you.
Romans 8:29 NLT
For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.
That’s the goal of the redemption. God wanted sons and daughters who will reflect and reveal Him in the earth. We are God’s witness. It is through us that God Himself carries out His will on earth. God needs us. His plans depend on us: Our availability and our willingness to cooperate with Divine Plan. God’s plan always includes the involvement of men.
Romans 8:29 NKJV
For whom He foreknew, He also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that He might be the firstborn among many brethren.
Galatians 4:19 NKJV
My little children, for whom I labor in birth again until Christ is formed in you,
Many of God’s intentions and His agenda is delayed on earth because many of His children are not mature. This slows down the plans and purposes of God. There are things that cannot be achieved by spiritual infants. See Ezekiel 22:30-31; Hebrews 5:12-14; Galatians 4:1-2.
Galatians 4:1-2 KJV
Now I say, That the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all; But is under tutors and governors until the time appointed of the father.
God needs men and women who will not balk under pressure, men and women whose lives reflect the Vision, the Virtues and the Values of the kingdom. See 2 Corinthians 12:17-18 NLT; 1 Corinthians 4:14-17.
This is a time to actively engage in the principles and practices that make spiritual growth possible so that we may be positioned for Divine use. God needs fathers who will mentor and disciple the next generation of believers. God needs you to grow up to walk in victory over the enemy, over disease, poverty and lack. See 1 John 2:12-14.
You are very important to the fulfillment of God’s end time agenda. God wants you to grow spiritually, mentally, emotionally, economically, vocationally etc. He wants you to grow in influence so that you could be an extension and expression of His will into your sphere.
Will you make the decision to begin to grow in every area of your life? God is counting on you. Will you disappoint Him? A thousand times no. This generation is looking for leaders who will model the Character, the Charisma and the Compassion of Christ. Will you stand up to the call? We need to see you grow into all that God has for you. Selah
