The blog taken from my book titled: “What God Wants to do For You Now”. Let’s start with a simple question like what percentages are you. If you don’t know what that is let me explain. A percentage means how much of you are tied to the world and how much to heaven. If our vision is to just fill a church pew every Sunday, all we have to do is run ads in local papers announcing that everyone who comes Sunday will get $50.
ON other hand if our vision is to fill the pews with newly saved and Holy Spirit filled Christians, it’s going to require a larger percentage of our time working with God. It’s no secret that Jesus would love to help with this challenge of reaching new souls for His kingdom. He also wants our vision bigger than we think possible. Every Christian Church should have a vision that is bigger than what they know they can do alone. The focus of our vision should be beyond our capability, expecting God’s part helping us to reach the impossible.
God loves it when we step out of our comfort zone and start walking with Him in the impossible. God likes being involved in our lives both individually, our family and growing our church. Jesus is a 100%er wanting us to step out into our impossible with Him.
Okay, so what is a 100%er? My very first pastor called me a 100%er and I asked him what that meant. He said it was a person who gave the world 100% of themselves, and when they turned to God they also gave Him 100% of themselves. Some give 50% to world and 50% to God, or some other percentage. Every Christian should ask them self what percentage they have between God and world (Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:14) are good examples. Whenever Christians says they are not qualified or brave or trained or I can’t do it, they are telling God His plan does not work. What Jesus wants to hear from us is, I can, I will, let’s go!
Winning others to God sometimes require remembering that we are not responsible for they did, nor for their future actions, we are responsible for spreading the Gospel to as many as possible helping join His Church body. In these last days we live in we must be willing to go get as many as are lost as possible, working together as His Body.
