Revolution begins with a vision.
The principles of revolution are self-sacrifice and dedication to the cause.
What is the cause for the men and women of God?
1. A call to follow Jesus by life or death.
2. A vision to impact the next generation.
To the revolutionary, the cause is worth dying for, and nothing else is worth living for. I am reminded of the saying, "You claim you would die for Christ, but will you live for Him?"
What do you see in the lives of the people of God?
Are they full of freedom and passion for the Kingdom?
Or have they lost heart? Are they captives of despair, disillusionment, or even boredom?
Is their mate deeply grateful for how well they are loved?
Are their children secure in their love?
What is the condition of our kingdom, the things God has entrusted to us?
Some day we will have to give an account for what has been entrusted to us, for whether we have affected our family in a positive way. We impart what we are, not what we talk about. This is why it is absolutely vital that we fight for the wholeness and redemption that are our inheritance in Christ.
In the kingdom of God, to lead is to come under others, serving and building, to put their needs above our own. At the heart of making others feel valuable, loved, and accepted is a decision to honor them above ourselves. This is only possible to the degree that our hearts are healed and our needs fulfilled by the love of Christ.
