Motives matter to God. Everything in the kingdom is about the heart. It’s not just that we pray, give, serve, etc. – but that we do it with the right heart. Why do you give? Why do you volunteer or pray for people? Why do you go to church? Let’s do a heart check up together.
God’s will is increase. As a people commanded to be strong and do what God has called us to do, we must take inventory of our lives and “prune” the dead branches in order to grow in a healthy way. God first does a work in us so He can do a work through us. What needs to “go” in order for you to grow???
It’s time to lay comfort and convenience on the altar. It’s time to dig deep, to press forward, to lengthen and stretch our faith. It’s the cost of obedience now or the pain of regret later – you choose!
