How can we live our lives to make the greatest impact for the Kingdom of God? As humans we tend to spend most of our time on autopilot. We are creatures of habit, we wake up, get dressed and go about our daily routines, then start all over again the next day. What if we lived Kingdom minded instead of earthly minded? Believe it or not, you can get to a place in your relationship with God where you no longer have to consciously force yourself to refocus on Him. Yes, you must begin by making a decision to seek Him and put Him first. As you begin to increase your time in His presence and fill your mind with His Word, your focus will begin to change and one day you’ll find that you’ve become more God-conscious than self-conscious. I’m not talking about perfection, but I am talking about a change in the chain of command and a passion to seek and please Him.
We all say that we put God first but do we? Evaluate your relationship with Him. Does your time consist of satisfying Him or you? I really don’t want to sound harsh but I think we all need this reminder from time to time so that we can check our spiritual status and make the necessary changes so that we can experience the fulfillment of living in the center of His will for our lives.
IMPACT, this is a word I’m thinking about a lot in this season of my life. How can I make the greatest impact for Christ in the lives of others? More of Him and less of me! Let's begin to look for opportunities to please God and touch people's lives with the Love of Christ. It's not about how gifted or intelligent you are, but how much time your spending with Him and how much of His Spirit is flowing through you. Let's impact the world with the love and presence of Christ!!
