By now, if you’ve been following me on Twitter or reading my posts, you’re aware of what’s taking place. What, you might ask?
I’m simply giving away $1 each day to an organization that’s making a difference in the life of young people around the country.
Simple enough, huh?
I really didn’t know where this idea would lead. Over the past month, since October 1, many spin-off ideas have developed with tremendous potential to enhance what’s already taking place.
This post isn’t to talk so much about the effort, but bring attention to a scripture that I’ve been thinking about recently.
It’s found in the book of Acts, Chapter 10.
37-38“You know the story of what happened in Judea. It began in Galilee after John preached a total life-change. Then Jesus arrived from Nazareth, anointed by God with the Holy Spirit, ready for action. He went through the country helping people and healing everyone who was beaten down by the Devil. He was able to do all this because God was with him. (Acts 10:38, The Message)
Yes, Jesus demonstrated GOOD in the earth. And so should all believers. The bible clearly states why HE was able to do all that he did, because of the work of the Holy Spirit in HiS life. I think it’s dangerous to attempt anything without the anointing. Otherwise, it just because another noble deed. And why was Jesus able to sustain the GOOD work? Because God was with him.
In all that will become of this effort, if God is not with me- I don’t want to continue. It’s senseless, and sure to fail.
It’s important that I keep a proper perspective of why I’m doing this project.
Our role is to model Christ in the earth. What form or shape that takes place; that’s our assignment, to know our purpose.
I could write more here, but for the sake of time, I’ll stop short.
Always remember it’s important to know why we do what we do. Then, and only then, can thoughts like my personal mantra make sense: Know what you do, do what you do, do it well.
