YAHSHUA’S KINGDOM is NOT the NBA OR your MBA

The KINGDOM of JESUS is NOT a Sports League or a Research University.

For success, you must be better at REPENTING & SUBMITTING than DEBATING & COMPETING.

An Analysis of Systemic Cultural Change

An Analysis of Systemic Cultural Change

There are people that see the corruption of the current system and love it because they benefit from it. It’s naive to think that these people will allow change to happen from the inside.

Then, there are people that don’t see the corruption of the current system because they are blind. The blind lead the blind, and they are all headed towards the ditch.

Then again, there are people that see the corruption of the current system, but are immature and overzealous and do more harm than good trying to correct it. These jump from one ditch directly to the ditch on the other side of the road. They get nowhere.

Then, there are people that see the corruption of the current system, and are mature and know what to do, but refuse to do it because of fear or apathy. They also are the aforementioned naïve, thinking that things will just change from the inside.

Then, there are a few who see the corruption of the current system, are mature enough to know what to do, knowledgeable enough to know what corrections need to be made, and are not afraid to start small and get it done with boldness, faithfulness, and patience. These people create change. They also inspire systemic change that appears to be coming “from within” but is really a response to being provoked from without as a response to either competition or new leadership.

What Prize are You Competing For?

Nobody finishes a race while gazing at the starting line. Why not focus on the finish line?

So much spiritual error comes from constantly looking back to your starting point instead of looking at Christ for maturity and how you can finish the race for HIS prize and not the “prizes” of the earthly minded headed for destruction.

Don’t chase relevance and validation from the world, chase holiness and maturity.

Philippians 3
13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,

14 I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

15 Let us therefore, as many as be perfect, be thus minded: and if in any thing ye be otherwise minded, God shall reveal even this unto you….

17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.

18 (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:

19 Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.

All spiritual error has a spiritual price, it just never tells you how high it is upfront… It just shows up and debits your account when you least expect it and can’t afford it.

Watch & Pray & Press towards Maturity.
