It takes an ability to multitask to live in the kingdom. You can’t be focused on one area and neglect everything else. We can’t be so focused on serviced that we forget to do it with love. We can be so focused on love that we forget our authority over the enemy. You see where I’m going here.
Keeping three basic strengths in balance will do you well as you grow spiritually. Those three keys are humility, love, and power.
Humility will keep you out of trouble. Just imagine what the world would have been like if Solomon had as much humility as he had wisdom. He would have remembered where his blessings came from and wouldn’t have turned to other gods. None of us is better than anyone else. And those called to lead are first called to serve. Humility will keep your heart before God in great reverence.
Love should be the source of all actions. 1 Corinthians 13 makes it very clear. It doesn’t matter how much I serve, what I give, or sacrifice, if my heart isn’t filled with love doing it, then it was all wasted effort. This isn’t easy. It takes God to change us and fill us with His Spirit to love through everything we do. It starts with the humility to ask God to change us as we recognize our need. Love will serve with blessing and do far more work in the kingdom than soap box rantings.
Power is where we reach out to protect and defend the lives that God puts in our hands. It’s our responsibility to heal and bless those around us. The power and authority are ours through the blood of Christ, and it’s our job to be His authority on earth. Too many people are left sick, hurting, and abandoned because we failed to walk out our responsibility as believers. Everything that Jesus did, He did to show us how. Now it’s out job to do it.
You ability to walk in humility, love, and power will change your life and the lives of those around you. All of it comes from your close and intimate relationship with Jesus. He will be everything that you need. All you have to do is step along next to Him. Stay humble, full of love, and let the power flow. It’s going to be awesome!
