Spiritual Intelligence: Good Business

Let him who is taught the word share in all good things with him who teaches. Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life. And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith

Good morning friends. Supplies for God’s kingdom on earth has always been an area where the devil’s assault has been heavily targeted over the years. His strategy is to stop the good news and charity from being spread by limiting their coverage and visibility. He understands that once the resources (human, physical and financial) are capped; the programme will be contained, and ultimately the impact will either be significantly reduced or nullified.

Therefore, we need to understand our place in the grand scheme of things; our role in the local church, and how it impacts our community and God’s plan for the redemption of humanity.

In the first commandment we are told:

And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.

So dear friends, in God’s term it’s all or nothing. We are commanded to immerse our heart, soul, mind and strength into God’s kingdom; and to extend that love to our neighbours. With this in mind, let us go back to our opening verses as I believe we are now better placed to understand the context, motive and importance of these verses from Paul’s letter to friends in Galatia.

On this year’s Father’s Day, just imagine the impact of our adherence to our heavenly Father’s charge….

Spiritual Intelligence: Power Encounter

And a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her, he called her forward and said to her, ‘Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.’ Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God.

Good morning friends. In contrast to the woman with the issue of blood who pressed her way through the crowd to touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, this woman had come to terms with her affliction. She must have faced physical discomfort, limitations, social stigma, mental and emotional trauma as a result of her illness. She would have also tried all sorts of interventions in the hope that she will be back to her normal self and regain her confidence, but with each passing day those dreams just faded away.

But inspite of it all, she was still committed to her faith – Isn’t that something? Even though her mortal body was dying, her spirit was alive in worship. She had good reasons not to be at the synagogue that day, but she turned up for a word from Jesus. Her inner faith found her out; “For God is a spirit, and they that worship Him must worship in spirit and truth”.

Her devotion to Jehovah made a demand on heaven’s resources, the covenant had to answer, relief had to come! Her mortal body became too hot for Satan and his demons, their time was up, they had to leave. Hallelujah!

So in defence of this act of kindness on a Sabbath day, Jesus said to his accusers;

You hypocrites! Doesn’t each of you on the Sabbath untie your ox or donkey from the stall and lead it out to give it water? Then should not this woman, a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has kept bound for eighteen long years, be set free on the Sabbath day from what bound her?

Indeed she had a right to be free, and a right to worship and glorify God for his wondrous works, even her recovery!

So dear friends stay; committed, connected, and faithful. You are next in line for a breakthrough. Amen!
