2nd word by Bishop David Abioye
SERVING GOD WOULD ALWAYS MAKE A DIFFERENCE PART 2
Serving God would always make a difference.
Servants are God's personal property.
You belong to God as a child and as a servant.
Exodus 23:25 You shall serve while he shall bless.
You serve your way into blessing.
When God bless what you buy, he eliminates sorrow from it.
Health is one of the fringe benefits of service to God.
Long life is one of the fringe benefits of service to God.
BIBLICAL MINDSET FOR MAKING A DIFFERENCE
Your mentality is a picture of your future.
There is need for a rewards mentality to make a difference.
Job 1:8-9, 10 we are not serving God for nothing.
When you serve God, you are fully protected.
When you serve God, you are blessed.
#1. Possess an appointment mentality. Luke 10:1-7
Soul winning puts you on God's appointment. Eating and drinking are part of the fringe benefits of service.
1 Corinthians 15:58 solidly abide in what you do and your service would not be in vein.
Appointment mentality is naturally self motivating.
Appointment mentality entitles you you wages.
2. We possess a sowers mentality.
Every spiritual labour is a seed in the kingdom.
Seeds answer with fruits. Gal 6:7-9
Your kingdom service is to the holy spirit.
Genesis 8:22, mark 4:27-28
Do the sowing while God would do the rest. The harvest comes phase by phase.
#3. Possess an investors mentality.
Your seeds are spiritual investment in God's kingdom. Praying kingdom prayers is a form business. Romans 12:11
When you take kingdom service serious, you end up glorious.
#4. Possess a partnership with Christ mentality. 1 Corinthians 3:6-9
We are labourers together with God.
When you are on the go with God, you fortify your partnership with God.
Matt 28:20, mark 16:20, Exodus 4:11, Acts 13:2 - 9
Partnership with Christ emboldens you.
#5. Possess a rewards mentakity. Hebrews 11:6, 1 Corinthians 3:8
Labour entitles you to rewards. Be individuality conscious because God only rewards individuals and not groups. Revelation 22:12
A true servant does those things others consider too small to be done.
Engage on a personal note with extra efforts.
WHAT ARE THR RETURNS OF KNIGDOM STEWARDSHIP.
1. Supernatural longevity.
Don't think death while serving God. Isaiah 38:5
2. Divine protection.
Demons fall before you when you are serving God.
Service plants you in the hurt free zone of life.
3. Joy unspeakable full of glory. Luke 10:17
Serving God entitles you to a joyful life.
You can't bear good news and be sorrowful.
4. Honour and dignity.
Service ensures that you don't buy things, you only get things.
Serving God entitles you to honour and dignity.
God is not looking for who to use, but who to bless.
