My Plea to Church leaders and ministers to train their members to live kingdom driven lives!!!
The church should be equipping its members, as we were created in the image and likeness of God, to rule, reign and dominate the earth. God told us to have dominion over the fish in the sea, the fowl of the air, everything that creepeth upon the earth.
The church should be a training ground, not a sitting ground. To live kingdom driven lives, members should be taught their mission field is outside of the four walls of the church. They should be trained to know God, be equipped with the knowledge of God, and take over their promise land. They should be trained to discover their gift and God-given assignment for their lives through their natural inclinations, they should be shown how to use their gift to bring the influence of God’s kingdom to the sector to which they have been called. This could be the medical sector, nursing sector, fashion designing world, politics, engineers, gynecologists, school teachers, policemen, pilots, fishermen etc. whatever your gift, God expects you to bring his kingdom influence to that sphere or section.
You must have a vision and written down goals on how you are going to achieve this. Our Lord Jesus said to pray that God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. This is God’s original plan before sin entered into the world. We are to make sure earth becomes a replica of heaven; the culture of the kingdom of heaven is manifested on earth. This is different from preaching the Gospel of Salvation, That is just step one, the Gospel of the Kingdom is bringing God’s influence to dominate the culture and way of life of that sector. For example, in heaven there is righteousness, so in that sector God has called us to dominate, we must see it as our responsibility to spread righteousness, peace and Joy in that sector. Until earth resembles heaven in culture and all other facets. The bible says in Romans 14 vs 17 for the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking (what one likes), but righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. God’s Kingdom is about what God does with your life, it’s really not about you. The church pews are not the place people should be for decades and just serving as choristers, instrumentalists, deacons etc. They are supposed to be dominating over the sea, over the air, over the cattle, other every creeping thing and over all the earth. In Genesis 1 vs 26, he said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. This is what it means to live for God and live a kingdom driven life.
Firstly know your mandate and it is to bring the nature of God to your sphere of contact or an area you are dominating. Friends, it’s really not about us, it’s the one who created us for his purpose!!!
