Key Scripture: Ephesians 5:1
Good morning Saints : ) As always I pray that everyone had a great weekend! Mine was very busy, and it went by really fast. Saints, I want to just talk to ya'll this afternoon; and just be completely transparent. When I began writing this message, I didn't have an n idea of what to share with ya'll. I wasn't really hearing any specific topic from Father either. Therefore, I just started writing. I want to be transparent with ya'll to be an example for ya'll. Many of you know the reason why I started this group as well as the M.O.W.s…to serve our Father in Heaven. I am not doing this to please man, for that is nearly impossible and worth nothing! Remember this Saints, "Only what you do for Christ will last"; everything else will pass away.
Now, I am not sharing this with ya'll to boast, brag, or any such foolishness. Again, I want to be completely transparent, that's why I'm telling you this. Sometimes, I do not "feel" like writing the M.O.W.s, or even running the group for that matter. Sometimes I question, "Is it worth it?" But every time, Father reminds me, whether directly or through one of your testimonies, that as long as this is helping at least ONE person come closer to Him, then it is WELL worth it! Saints, when Father reveals such things to me, I then ask myself, "TJ, why are you doing this?" Now this is not the "why" that you may be thinking, but more like, "Who are you doing this for?" My answer is and will always be, GOD!!
Saints, my point this afternoon is, through my transparency, can you ask yourself that same question, and always get that same answer. In other words, why do you do things for other people? Or why do you do this, and why do you do that? Is your answer always, "To give God the glory?" If not, then saints I urge you to examine yourself. The Bible says that if we would judge ourselves, then we will not be judged. Some of you might say, well I don't have to do EVERYTHING for God do I? Well, HIS word says, "In everything that you do, do it to the glory of the Lord." I hope that answers your question : )
Saints, I hope that my transparency on today, allowed you to examine yourself and your motives in doing things. Whether you stay in this group or not, my only prayer is that this group has helped your relationship with God grow so much more. I love you all with the love of our Lord! Until next time, take care and God Bless!!
