WHAT ON EARTH ARE YOU DOING FOR HEAVEN’S SAKE (3) - MATTHEW 26:7-13

The things that we do for heaven’s sake must be done in a particular way to make it acceptable. This will be my focus today.

1.It must be done by faith. Sometimes faith will contest with your reasoning.

2.It must be done by the calling, in the calling or for the calling. You see different examples of this in the bible. If you are a member of a church or you are connected to a Minister that God has called, if he asks you to do something, give a response that is commensurate to the request.

3.It must be done with passion. Without passion, you can’t do anything that will be acceptable to God. It is not something that you will do carelessly, frivolously or cunningly.

4.It must be done in obedience. There are two things that you must take note of: 

•An instruction that God gave you: For example, the Lord instructed my wife (Rev Oyenike Areogun) to feed His servants and she is always on the lookout for men of God to feed.

 

•Revelation: For example, there is a missionary that our ministry supports weekly. A percentage of our ministry’s income goes to his ministry. I found out that when it comes to giving, it is one of the most difficult things for people to do scripturally. Some people assume that someone that gave you something is superior to you, some assume that if you are given something, you must do something in return. That is cultural relations. Don’t get emotional when it comes to divine activities. Do it by faith, by instruction and by revelation.

Prayer: Lord, I choose to do acts that will make heaven glad, by faith, passion and teaming up with the calling you have joined me to on the earth. I make myself sendable and usable for divine purpose in Jesus’ name. Amen.
