Destiny. It's a word that is scary to many folks, but more and more I'm realizing the validity and power of this word.
Most dictionaries would define 'destiny' as something that must happen. But I would define it as 'something that has the potential of happening, if certain requirements are met'. This is a raw, true reality to me. Destiny - being the potential of an individual life, or on an larger scale, the potential of a church or movement, it absolutely mind-blowing. In a word, destiny speaks to me, of potential.
It is my thought-process that God can accomplish more through one passionate believer in one day, that through someone who is nominal about their faith in a lifetime. Do the math then: If I live passionately for Jesus Christ and the Kingdom of God every day for for the next 6 months - that is 184 days - how many nominal believers is that. WOW - NOT COMPARING! Just wondering what it equals out to be.
Bottom line is this: We accomplish kingdom endeavors according to our faith in the Master. I will endeavor to continue to grow in my faith each and every day. I endeavor to continue to push the envelop, buck the horse, rock the boat, go the extra mile - to love God with all I am, and love my neighbour as myself. Only by God's grace is any of this accomplished - so I'm crying out for grace.
Nonetheless - it's a funny subject because it's so intangible this side of the judgement seat of Christ.
Nonetheless, nonetheless - I WILL CONTINUE TO MAXIMIZE MY OWN POTENTIAL, WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY DOING ALL THAT I CAN TO MAXIMIZE OTHERS AS WELL! This is what the church of Jesus Christ is for! IT'S TIME TO WALK IN DESTINY!
