What do people see when they look at you?
How do you stand out of the crowd?
Do you attract or do you repel people?
These are important questions to ask ourselves because our answers will give us an indication of whether or not we are truly walking in our Kingdom citizenship.
The reason why we are called Ambassadors for Christ is because an Ambassador represents a mother country in a foreign land. The reason why we are also called Pilgrims, is because a pilgrim is someone who is just is just passing through.
So if we are pilgrims and Ambassadors, then we need a sense of urgently with the right attitude.
Eph 6:19 And for me, that utterance may be given unto me, that I may open my mouth boldly, to make known the mystery of the gospel,
Eph 6:20 For which I am an ambassador in bonds: that therein I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
Heb 11:13 These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off, and were persuaded of them, and embraced them, and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth.
Heb 11:14 For they that say such things declare plainly that they seek a country.
Heb 11:15 And truly, if they had been mindful of that country from whence they came out, they might have had opportunity to have returned.
Heb 11:16 But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city.
The gospel Jesus sent his disciples out to preach was that of the Kingdom, to show people there is a better environment to live in while they are on this planet and this environment is to reflect the home country. This message is to be preached right up until his return.
This is why he left a plumb line for us to follow in his word, which is literally our citizenship credentials.
The Law and Prophets spoke of the King and the King spoke of the Kingdom:
Luk 16:16 The law and the prophets were until John: since that time the kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.
Luk 16:17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass, than one tittle of the law to fail.
Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.
Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
So how do you have an attitude of a kingdom citizen?
Well first of all you have to submit yourself to the creator of the Kingdom, which is God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit, YHWH
The Holy Spirit is the active power of the Trinity, so our attitude MUST be guided by the Holy Spirit. So where do we go to understand is?
Gal 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,
Gal 5:23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
So a Kingdom citizen must demonstrate these qualities because it is these qualities that are going to cause us to stand out.
At the moment we live in a colony of Heaven, in other words God wants us to create the environment of Heaven here on earth. This is why once a person has been born again, in other words, had their citizenship agreed and stamped in Heaven, the first thing that need to happen is, their mind needs to be renewed.
Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
In the weeks to come I will be continuing to speak on this topic because it is one that truly needs to understood.
Parallel Business Principles
The mind of an entrepreneur is different to the mindset of the normal employee and this is why the person with an employee mindset finds it hard to understand why an entrepreneur does the things their do.
This is going to be your challenge when you are telling people about what you are doing in your Reliv business. But you have to understand that you have to pull them into your environment and not be dragged into theirs.
Create an environment within an environment and the people you help will have the chance to improve their situation.
