MISSING IN ACTION

 

Apostle James R Winfree Sr, Revealing The Truth Of God's Holy Word In Love:

 

MIA, The Actions & Works of Jesus Christ In His Church!!

 

What does it mean to live as a follower of Christ and believers of God’s kingdom in the Church?

 

The simplest answer is this: living as a follower of Christ the fellowships means doing our work according to the works of Jesus Christ in His Kingdom.

 

What, then, are the works of Christ’s kingdom?

 

Most of the time when we think of Christian works, our thinking can, frankly, be pretty boring. We often limit ourselves to the works of God, to going to Sunday's worships, Paying tithes and giving offerings, Praise & Worship and listening to the preacher teach or preach”

 

Many of these things are important in themselves. But the Christian works is not simply about religious stuff or things, but proactively doing just what Jesus did when He was here on earth. And being loving and anointed in it. The question is not what can I spare to serve others and reach the world, but what will it take and rolling up our sleeves and getting the work done!!!

 

This what our dear brother Charles Spurgeon said:

 

Let us be on the watch for opportunities of usefulness; let us go about the world with our ears and our eyes open, ready to avail ourselves of every occasion for doing good; let us not be content till we are useful, but make this the main design and ambition of our lives. Jesus said we should let our light shine so that others will see our good works and give God the glory in heaven.

 

Hence, let’s model for the world a complete picture of Christian life that shows how great God is through our willingness to proactively and lovingly spend ourselves for the good of others in all areas of life, including our personal lives. I submit that such a more complete list of Christian works and actions is in the Gospels of Jesus Christ and His Apostles:

 

Radical generosity. Just like Jesus, who did not tithe but gave everything He had ( 2 Corinthians 8:9 ).

Love. Ditching the self-protective mindset and putting others before ourselves, making their good our aim in all things (Philippians 2:3-11).

Risk. Making the good of others a higher priority than our own safety, security, and comfort, and taking risks to bring benefit to them (Luke 10:25-37).

Creativity. Christians are to be creative! And to be a boring Christian in dead works and religions ( that’s an implication of the term “salt” in Colossians 4:6 ).

Excellence. Slack work is a form of vandalism (Proverbs 18:9). Christians are not to be clock-watchers in their work but to do things well and with competence.

Initiative. Taking ownership of making things better, rather than sitting around watching and complaining.

Leadership. Instead of criticizing, leading and setting a good example.

Humble authenticity in God's love and grace.

 

Global and multi-ethnic vision. God’s mission extends to all peoples and ethnic groups and nations, but first to the members of Christ body. It is a global cause in the fullest sense.

Ambition. Not for our own comfort, but for the good of others. Doing good for others in the face of the kingdom of darkness takes God-centered, other-oriented energy, persistence, and drive.

These are all Christian actions and works. But would the world know to name even one of these as Christian? We have a lot of work to do. Amen, His Church.
