MOBILIZING FOR THE WORK

By Elder (Mrs). Onche

  • 1 cor. 3:8-14, Matt 28:19-20, Acts 1:8

Being chosen by God means:

(1) We are able to do the work if we give ourselves to it

(2) God has made us a full partner in the business of His kingdom

(3) We are His personal representative on earth

Being His personal representative means reproducing His work (Jn. 14:12; a call to action)

3 SETS OF PEOPLE GOD SEEKS

  • People who understand the work
  • People who know that the work of the Master needs urgency
  • People who will give it all

People who understand the work

  • 2:12-16
  • Nehemiah had an understanding of the work, he knew he was responsible to God who gave Him the assignment

People who understand the urgency

  • 2:18
  • Nehemiah saw the waste and distress; the gates without elders and so, he moved into action
  • God is mobilizing an army for the work as the death and intercession of Jesus must not be in vain, He is looking for people that will bear His burden with Him

People who are ready to give their all

  • 4:6, Neh. 4:13-23
  • They built because they had the mind to work, They worked day and night, tirelessly. As you pray and show care, you are building. Nehemiah understood the voice of the Master and the dimension of the work because there was a constant communication with the Master, they refused to listen to the suggestions of men but were stuck to the word God gave them
  • 1 Tim. 4:14 (Give yourself completely to the work)
  • They were constantly with their God despite their positions, They were people given to prayer but importantly They were faithful and men who feared God (Neh. 7:2)
  • 2 Tim. 2:2 (It is not the number of your gift that matters but how faithful you are)
  • 6:12:13 (God is raising men and women who will not fear, meddle with but sensitive to God)
  • 3 SETS OF PEOPLE GOD SEEKS
  • PEOPLE WHO UNDERSTAND THE WORK
  • PEOPLE WHO KNOW THAT THE WORK OF THE MASTER NEEDS URGENCY
  • PEOPLE WHO WILL GIVE THEIR ALL
