Four More and No More? What?

As ministers we must not limit what God is working to do through us. Isaiah 54:2-3Isaiah 54:2-3
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

2 Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; 3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.

Do you want to enlarge your tent? (Photo credit: florisla)

and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations, spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strenthen thy stakes; For thou shall break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.”

May I ask, are comfortable in our ‘four and no more‘ congregations? We have our four friends and community and don’t care to expand and reach more people?

We must have a vision for 2013 to reach more people for Christ. Let’s all confess we will stretch the curtains of God’s work, set the stakes for the winds which will blow with expansion, and then watch the work of the Lord!

We must not be concerned with the Holy Spirit‘s moving us to expand our area. Was it not Jabez who called out “Oh, that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.”

Do we ‘really’ want growth or are we satisfied with our ‘four and no more’ mentalities? Are we complacent with the congregation and work we have or do we desire to reach more for Christ?

Must I quote Matthew 28:19Matthew 28:19
English: King James Version (1611) - KJV

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teach...: or, make disciples, or, Christians of all nations

? Does it not say ‘go YE!’ Is that not meaning ‘GO ME?’ Probably not? It means ‘GO YOU’ to some else. Let us build for the kingdom of God and not be satisfied with status quo!

God bless everyone.  I sure don’t want or mean to offend anyone, but feel God laid this on my heart today. Be sure to read my blog on www.facebook.com/psalms91ministries
