We must be responsible and committed

September 15, 2011

If we are going to fulfill or succeed in our efforts for Christ we are going to have to be sold out to the responsibility of Church growth and committed to the fulfillment of maturity. Probably before we make those decisions there are some things we have to accept. We must accept we are here for a purpose. We must accept that we have the potential in Christ to facilitate change. In other words God has placed us on this earth to make a positive difference in the lives of other people. We have in us through Christ the potential to change the course of history. Sins can be forgiven. The lowly can be lifted up. The sick can be healed.

The possibility of speaking into the lives of others is generally orchestrated through relationships. We must see ourselves and others in Christ as family. It is easier to sacrifice or submit when we understand that we all belong to Christ when we are His. Relationship means experiencing the ups and downs of life together. Relationships make it possible to affect the lives of others.

Being a part of a family affords some benefits. Heirs generally are family members. Once in a while someone outside will be remembered because of something they have done but for the most part heirs are family members. Safety, protection, peace, and happiness are also attributes of family.

Family requires some responsibility as well. We learn what we can share and what we must keep to ourselves. We learn who we can depend on and who we keep at arms’ length. We learn how to cooperate. We learn how to submit. We learn how to communicate and compete also.

All of us can recall someone who poured themselves into our lives. Because of that we should not have any reservations of doing the same for someone else. There are people searching for someone who will not do things for them but give some encouragement along the way. Don’t be afraid to be involved with others. They are just like you, created to serve.

Man_Up and be the man that God wants you to be.
