How God Can Trust You With More

A commitment of sacrifice is where greatness begins in God’s Kingdom.  Laying down our life for the great commission of going into the highways and the byways to spread the message of Jesus, the message of hope. You give yourself at every level and out of that spirit of sacrifice God will trust you with more.  From a seed in the ground to a flourishing tree filled with fruit!

1. We Need A Commitment That Will Match Our Mountain

Our mountain is our vision from God: our calling, our promise. We are focused like a flint on that mountain and we don’t allow anything or anybody or any circumstance to knock us off course all the way through the contradiction (spiritual warfare) of that promise. Sacrifice can entail all kinds of circumstances: some rewarding, some uncomfortable. However, our obedience to God must be absolute and pure.

When leaders or ministers are willing to sacrifice, their greatest fruit is the spirit of gratefulness in the people who receive, experience, and multiply from their sacrifice, their laying down of their lives, and even their children’s lives, for the kingdom of God. Gratefulness will produce loyalty to the vision!

2. Pursuit of Holiness

“Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all. Now, our God, we give you thanks, and praise your glorious name. “But who am I, and who are my people, that we should be able to give as generously as this? Everything comes from you, and we have given you only what comes from your hand.”

1 Chronicles 29:12-14

Sacrifice takes us from level to level, especially our financial sacrifice. We should be willing to sacrifice just like in the book of Acts when the people laid down their substance at the feet of the Apostles so the Gospel could be spread throughout the world. These financial sacrifices should be part of our faith walk as we build God’s kingdom and spread the good news.

We have to be willing to plow (work our field/mountain) in every area of our life. And we don’t do it because we just want a blessing, we do it because it is God’s plan.

3. Nonnegotiable

It is God’s will for us to be grateful and thankful in all things even in our financial sacrifices. Everything we have comes from God and when we keep this in focus, in our life, we keep gratefulness and thankfulness the center. These are timeless principles in the kingdom of God. As times change, eras change, and technology changes, we continue to be grateful and thankful because these timeless principles still work.

We stay true to the values and principles of our sacrifice, of our gratefulness and thankfulness to the kingdom of God. We understand it doesn’t just work for the individual, it works for marriage, it works for the church, and it works for the ministry. These values and principles are non-negotiable!

4. Inspiring A New Generation

Our current generation is spiritually starving! We need to introduce them to these non-negotiable and timeless principles. If we want to build something great for God whether it is a family, business, a church, these principles must be our foundation! Whatever we do to glorify God Almighty will require sacrifice, brokenness, and balance. Before God takes us farther, and before He takes us higher, He will take us deeper! The deeper we allow Him to take us, the higher we will go.

Final Thoughts

Our response to revival should be: here is my home, my family, my finances, my everything!

Revival is birthed from sacrifice!

Revival will turn an audience into an army.

The non-negotiables of timeless values and principles are what makes a ministry great!

When God brings us into a good land, where we will lack nothing, we DO NOT let our hearts become proud and forget the Lord who brought us to this good land!
