My last post encourages due to position ourself carefully for the sake of our world, for your sake to enable you and i to be fulfilled in our day. It encourage us to look into our world with eyes wide open. “It is right to bring God’s saving grace and correct to transform society”. These thoughts might mean you and I should considered some “…Repositioning…”
To secure the best opportunity both to see salvation and influence we need to position ourselves wisely, making right choices in where we live, the work we enter into, the life we live the time we take up with self-centred occupations. Taking up places where we know that we are positioned to influence. In schools, in our streets amongst the people we see daily. Writing to newspapers, telephoning agencies, organising deputations, gaining help from others with influence, contact, connect and challenge where necessary…never settle for nothing.
Jesus ruled, brought order some times by a simple word (Matt 8:16) Sometimes he had others do something about the situation, like in Cana of Galilee at the wedding feast (John 2:7,8) At other times he took direct action, as in driving the money changers from the temple with a whip of cords (Matt 21:12.13). Failure to bring God’s order, failure to rule a situation is to have the situation rule us.
In 2014 let us ask should I reposition, if yes where and in what, if no take a step towards your goal. 2014 a year of Positioning….
