a repeat for the KINGDOM of God [+] Friday E-Devotion

This week I spent a great deal of time sharing with our leadership team at The Community Fellowship a message about The Community.  As I look back, pray much and press on to lead others I have to repeat some of that message and some of the reason we do what we do.

I challenge you, re-think what you do.  Ask God to re-build within you and me the vision He has given.  Share what God says.  Do it with the boldness that we were given at first.  Re-visit where God has brought you from, and then join me in moving forward with gusto, desire and renewed vision!  God is good....

1 Corinthians 9:22 (nasb) --- To the weak I became weak, that I might win the weak; I have become all things to all men, so that I may byall means save some.

God has called us to be creative in winning people to Him.  We have the opportunity to turn people toward His kingdom.

Matthew 6:33 (nlt) --- Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.

The kingdom of God is wherever Jesus is king (Rick Warren quote).  It is God's people doing God stuff.  If you want God's blessing you have to get on God's agenda.  Thus, He is calling us, as His kids and as leadership to the church, to love the real church and not just the ideal church.

What an honor it is to see what God sees, hear God's heart and follow Him.  The kingdom of God is huge, and this is a great time to get in on what God is doing.  I close with a CHALLENGE: find people and leave them the way God would leave them!
