What Is Your Motive?
We all feel that we should do certain things in life! Some of us think it looks great to be in "Ministry". Therefore we offer ourselves in a certain capacity that we feel that is just right for us! What looks nice and rosy in our eyes might not be anywhere near what Jesus has in mind for us! What was our motive, for wanting to do that certain thing? Jesus knows! You can never duplicate the anointed calling of someone else, you cannot copy what Jesus has given someone else to do, because He has given them the Holy Ghost Power (ability) to fulfil that calling!
We read, concerning Solomon, "And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the Lord searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts." 1 Chronicles 28:9. God Knows our Motive! We are told in God's Word, "Where there is no vision, the people perish." Proverbs 29:18. When Christians do not hear, or have REVELATION from GOD, concerning their calling of what He wants them to do for Him, the people will perish! But praise God, many have heard the great commission, God's Call, to "GO YE".
On the Internet many have good "GOSPEL WEBSITES", lifting up JESUS, many are sending out "WRITINGS", and "INSPIRATIONS", also lifting up JESUS, with "THE RIGHT MOTIVE!" Whatever God has called us to do, that is where we will "SHINE" the best!
The most important thing for everyone reading this message is what are you doing, and, WHAT IS YOUR MOTIVE? If God has called you to do what you are doing and you have a GODLY MOTIVE, then God Bless you, and may I encourage you. If you are not sure, please pray about it, it will never bare forth fruit, unless it is ordained of God! But every Christian is to take heed to the great commission!
