Welcome to #KingdomManna on #InspireAfricaProject! It’s very painful to discover that what we have in the body of Christ are “give me believers.” That’s why many Christians remain spiritual infants the rest of their lives. In fact, some Christians are physically old but they are still wearing diapers in the spirit. If you ask many believers to write prayer points, it will be difficult for you to see anyone who will say, “Lord, my deepest heart desire is to encounter you. Lord reveal yourself to me!”
Can’t you see that we have turned the worship of our King to a battle ground where we fight enemies? If you listen to the messages of some ministers, what you will be hearing are, satan, devil, enemies, witches, wizards, die, paralyze, somersault and other words that should not be mentioned in the Ekklesia
Mosaic Laws encouraged people to return evil for evil, but Jesus said we should love our enemies and not kill them with fire! This unnecessary diversion has turned the church to a movie theatre where demon chasers and beggars are raised. The gospel of hatred has killed the message of love. Can’t you see that many believers are living in fear instead of exercising their dominion mandate? Virtually everybody is now a suspect because someone taught some Christian to kill their enemies before they kill them.
The prodigal son started as a ‘give me’ individual. One day, he went to his dad and said; “..Father, give me the portion of goods that falls to me.’ So he divided to them his livelihood. And not many days after, the younger son gathered all together, journeyed to a far country, and there wasted his possessions with prodigal living.” Luke 15:11-13.
In the first place, whatever the father of this young man had belongs to him. All he needed to do to gain access to his fathers’ wealth was to serve and remain loyal to him. The moment the younger son asked for the portion of his fathers’ inheritance, he migrated from a son to a beggar!
A servant doesn’t have to beg for his reward or payment, but a beggar must look pitiable before he can get something from anybody. Those who donated themselves to God don’t have to beg God for anything before He does it, but those who are looking for things will always beg for things.
‘Give me’ Christians are not interested in the Kingdom expansion project, all they do from January to December is moving from one prophet to the another in search of miracles! ‘Give me’ Christians hardly grow, they are perpetual infants who are always looking for baby food.
But the good thing is that the prodigal son did not end up at the ‘give me’ level. Look at what happened; “But when he came to himself, he said, ‘How many of my father’s hired servants have bread enough and to spare, and I perish with hunger I will arise and go to my father, and will say to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, and I am no longer worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” Luke 15:17-19.
He moved from ‘give me’ to ‘make me!’ God wants you to migrate from being a spiritual infant and become an instrument in His hands. It’s time to stop hunting for mantles and anointing oil, and start hunting for souls. God wants you to move from give me, to what can I contribute in moving the Kingdom of God forward.
This is the right time to develop your spiritual life. Will you be happy if your twelve years old son is still demanding for baby milk? Am sure you won’t be happy. God is not happy that your are still a spiritual infant after twenty years in the faith. He wants you to develop your spiritual muscles. You must understand that your spirituality determines your audacity and authority! It’s to to migrate from give me, to make me! Welcome to the camp of spiritual giants. Remain ever lifted!
