Give Your Best

It’s time for us in the body of Christ to fine tune ourselves and get ready to be the best we can be for God! The world situation is changing rapidly and all signs point towards the rapture of the church and the second coming of Christ.

I believe that as calamity and disaster increase, many will turn to the Lord and be opened to receive ministry. Here are some things that we can do to be ready.

First, commit to an attitude of excellence in all that you do. Colossians 3: 23-24 reads, And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

Give everything you do the best you have; on your job and also in your church life. If you volunteer in an area of ministry, give it your best. Be on time to events! Do what you do as if Jesus were your boss. Work as unto Him.

Ephesians 6:6-8 reads, not with eye service, as men-pleasers, but as bondservants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart, with goodwill doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men, knowing that whatever good anyone does, he will receive the same from the Lord, whether he is a slave or free.

Secondly, think unity. There is strength when we unify with fellow believers. The power of the early church was in their being in one accord. How we treat fellow believers is how we treat Jesus Himself. An atmosphere of unity is a breeding ground for the Holy Spirit to manifest Himself. Be quick to forgive and quick to love. Believe the best of others.

Thirdly, ask the Father to manifest spiritual gifts. 1 Corinthians 14:1(NIV) reads,
Follow the way of love and eagerly desire spiritual gifts, especially the gift of prophecy. Ask the Father to use you in spiritual gifts. In church services, ask the Father for prophecy, diver kinds of tongues, and the interpretation of tongues to manifest. Be open for Him to use you if He so chooses.

In your daily life, walk in love and ask the Father to make you a blessing to others. He may choose to manifest the Word of Knowledge or Gifts of Healings through you. Remain conscious throughout your day that He wants to use you.

When we gather in church meetings, we actually become collectively a temple of the Holy Spirit. Yes, we individually have Him living in us, but there is a special manifestation of the presence of God among us when we gather together. The depth of the manifestation is determined by our desire for Him. So be on time to your local church services. Show by your actions that you want the best He has and that you want others to receive. Arriving late to a church service on purpose is really showing disrespect to the Father and a lack of desire for Him to give His best. And being late signals others who may be visiting (and that need the Lord) that we really aren’t all that committed to what we believe!

These are important days for the kingdom of God. Jesus is coming soon. So many need ministry. Let’s go the extra mile in all we do. It’s time for the Father to show Himself strongly through us.

  1. Hi Pastor Mitch!

    I really believe in my heart that we need to reach out to others. We need to love one another unconditionally. How do you know that the person sitting next to you is not hurting in some way? We need to start being real, open and honest so that we can be a blessing to others. We need to start praying for our fellow believers and not just for ourselves. We need to unite as a church during the services and let the Holy Spirit manifest itself. The Father can use each and every one of us to minister to others. Jesus is coming soon and we need to walk in love!

  2. Well said Pastor. You should post that on Facebook every Sunday. I see so many post from people dreading to go to work on Monday, when in reality they should be grateful that the Father has provided them a job to go to on Monday morning.

  3. I can sense the weight of the world, the intensifying darkness, the increasing pressures of everyday life. Lately I had been thinking "how or will I overcome the carnality that often tries to be the strong part of me in this time". I think to myself…"will I please the Lord, will I run a good race, will I crucify the flesh (and my feelings) will I live in the Spirit and avoid the "lusts" of the flesh….and I hear the Lord saying "just do your best and leave the rest to me"….Thank you Lord for carrying us!!!
