“IF YOU HAVE RESULTS…”
Text: Matthew 1:21
“And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name Jesus: for he shall save his people from their sins.”
Hello! Do you know your name is worthless without results?
From the record of Jesus, in our text above, you can see very clearly that it wasn’t his name that gave his assignment credibility, importance and recognition…rather his assignment (and the results he commanded on the assignment) gave his name importance and recognition.
I say this again : whatever name or title you bear, whatever position you occupy, is worthless without results!
MY OWN STORY
I’ll never forget what my Papa said to me one day…
He told me, “If you have results, you will have respect…”
That profound statement (which remains my greatest motivation till date) was intended to provoke me to greater productivity on my job then, as Editor In Chief Of Dominion Publishing House (DPH).
God distinguished me (among other pastors’ wives in the Ministry then) by my undeniable results, impact and influence…Yes!
In fact, that was what got me the ordination as Pastor, in Winners’ Chapel, that December 31st, 1995.
I was not known and respected in the Ministry then just because I was “Pastor Ezeka’s wife”…But because of my relevance and usefulness to the Ministry.
Yes…I followed my husband into the Living Faith Ministry as his wife…But by maximizing every privilege and opportunity given to me to make the difference, in the Ministry of God’s renowned servant, Bishop David Oyedepo, I left my own footprints in the Living Faith Church Worldwide…And I sincerely give God all the praise!
Friend, it’s time to settle down and begin to re-examine your status in life…
I don’t care where you are in the social ladder, or how many figures describe your bank account…You’re worthless to God and his world of humanity that he “so loved”…if your life is not speaking volumes that history cannot neglect!
Ecclesiastes 1:4 says, “One generation passeth away, and another generation cometh…”
You know what that means? The next generation will soon take the stage…So the only way not to pass away with your own generation, is by what you’re giving to your world now…Something that no generation after you cannot do without…Yes!
So, wake up and begin to live friend…every time is not your time!
