A GOOD NAME IS NOT ENOUGH…
Text : Hebrews 11:1-2
“Faith… by it the elders obtained a good report (testimony). “
Everybody is calling you a good man/woman, very kind man/woman. Well, thank God for that. But the Christian life is to you according to your faith, not according to your goodness!
Your life will only be as rich and comfortable as how much of your blessings in heavenly places your faith is downloading into your life.
Is it bad to be good? No! But we are told to follow after them who through faith and patience (not who through their goodness) obtained the promise (Hebrews 6:12).
Just a good name will not put food on the table for your family! Your faith must be working, with proofs that are adding so much joy and blessings to the life of the people you’re responsible for.
The proof of a working faith are the results it has to show – very evidently reflected in not only your spiritual quality, but also in material and financial blessings (Hebrews 11:2; Job 1:1-10; Psalm 112:1-3; 3John 1:3).
Your family deserves a better life. It’s time for a reappraisal friend. Mediocrity can never be an acceptable confirmation of genuine spirituality or true knowledge and understanding of God... We have examples in the scriptures….
Abraham, for instance is our exemplary man of faith (Romans 4:1-21). Scriptural records tell us that he was “blessed in all things” (Genesis 24:1). And verses 34-35 of the same chapter described the dimension of the blessed in all things. It’s all for our example.
Proverbs 24:14 says, “So shall the knowledge of wisdom be… when thou hast found it, there shall be a reward… “
There is an “it” to find that will change your financial and material status forever for the good of those who are depending on you. May the Holy Spirit help you to find it this season, in Jesus name! Things must change for you and your family in 2016. No more just managing life and hoping that things will change! Enough is enough. Take responsibility now!
