God Goes Where We Go

God will give us a new heart and a new spirit as we begin to walk with Him. When we walk in the Spirit, we will enter into people's lives through identification. We do not go simply to minister. We go because we actually have God's own love for them.

A man I know holds down two jobs and is busy raising a beautiful family, yet his heart compels him to go soul winning in his neighborhood at different times during the week. It is not unusual to find him weeping with a neighbor. As a result, thirty-five people have come out to a Bible study in that area. That man's heart is making a difference.

Just think of what the love of God will constrain us to do. As His love moves us to serve in identification, it will not seem to be a "duty" to us, even though it is required that we be found faithful. The love of God develops our potential. We can do nothing of ourselves, and we cannot seek our own glory. When the words a man preaches are God's words, his teaching is not his own. That kind of walk develops a capacity for us to lay down our lives and to manifest the nature of God. Best of all, we will not be conscious of what is happening. We simply fall deeper in love with Christ and people as it happens.
