1.Take God very very serious (Know Him). We need God for we have seen that we are weak without Him. Matthew 24:35.
Let us do away with complacency especially churches in Europe.The weight of selfishness, self-centredness, indiscipline, laziness, and all manner of excuses. Hebrews 12:1
The way to show our seriousness in God is to know Him. People are busy studying about the devil (Theodicy) and what is the church doing. We must engage in knowing God and the revelation of Christ (Theology) by given ourselves to true Doctrine (teachings). 2 Timothy 1:12, Daniel 11:32.
2.Engage in the ministry of prayer and the Holy Spirit.
Spiritual power comes only through prayer and the Holy Ghost.
For us to become a prophetic voice and a solution center to the nations, prayer and the ministry of the Holy Spirit and His anointing is non-negotiable. We must pray for discernment and sensitivity to the Spirit. We must pray for the ability to perceive and behold what God is doing. Acts 1:8, 2:1, 4:23-31, 2 Corinthians 4:7, Isaiah 2:2
A major hindrance to church growth and health in the next decade will not necessarily be the devil but our mindset.
Romans 12:2 p
4.Pursue knowledge, understanding, and wisdom.
To be the light of the world and salt of the earth will require physical, spiritual, and intellectual believers; men and women who will develop their God-given gifts, talents, skills, and abilities.
God’s responsibility is to give us gifts, talents, skills, and abilities. Our responsibility is to develop these gifting’s and use it to benefit the church of Christ. Examples are Noah (Genesis 6:14-17), Bezaleal & Aholiab (Exodus 31:1-3)
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
• Give attention to knowledge. 1 Timothy 4:13. Develop Christian Apps, businesses, upgrade self, etc.
• Be in the market. Christian youths in the job market to influence the system. Daniel 9:1-2
• Walk in wisdom. Proverbs 4:7
5.Build the church beyond walls. Maintain fellowship, communion, and service to sharpen each other (Hebrews 10:25) but
go beyond the pulpit on Sundays.
Use technology to advance the Kingdom. Remember Kingdom Shift.
6.Engage in evangelism spiritually and strategically. God’s number one desire is to see the world save (1 Timothy 2:4). Strategically go to where the fishes (souls) are (John 21). Use your social media to propagate the gospel, open Christian business, and more.
