Sin and Progress
In a deeper sense we ought to understand that in order for us to succeed and progress in life, we need to break the power of sin, break the power of judgment and fear over our lives. Do we know that due to our fear of sin, many christians have refused to progress? We always get stuck thinking about so so and so, what people will say….. while we could actually spend our time working towards upgrading our skills and abilities. We let our culture and traditions hold us back from progressing.
You take a good look at your self now. Do you not see that there are some good opportunities that have come your way and you stupidly threw them away?
It is just not enough to keep screaming “Amen … Amen…” to every thing the preachers voice out in the pulpit. We ought to understand what type of blessing that we say “Amen” to. Do you know that you can be blessed to be poor? Blessings need to be specific….and know what type blessing that is pronounced onto us before we start to scream “Amen” to everything.
Look at the specific blessing God blessed them with. Reading from that same Gen.1:28 downwards, God said be fruitful. It is left for you to understand what fruitfulness means to YOU and take it! Secondly He said multiply – meaning we have knowledge of the blessing that we have but before we enter into any investment, we ought to understand the nature of the business and its environment so it can be profitable. In short, that thing that we are fruitful in we should increase in it. He went on the say replenish the earth meaning it is a blessing God gave to man to sustainably develop the environment we take from during fruitfulness and multiplication.
Our knowledge of sin and the fear of sin even though as born again christians we are above sin does not allow as to tap deep into what we have to get what we need.
Many men of God know the truth but are reluctant to show their members to way. If you are born again and therefore have the word of God in you, then you should have knowledge and understanding that christianity is not about poverty and poverty mentality as most men of God tell us. It is about profitability too! If you have a hobby to do x y, as a service or product and people like it, tell me what is wrong with charging a b amount of money for that? If the demand for your hobby goes up what is wrong with strategically increasing price to be more profitable? You ought to understand that YOU need to wake up and live! That thing you think is just a small hobby that you give or do to people for free could actually be your bread winner. IT IS NOT A SIN TO THINK BUSINESS IN CHURCH!!!!
