Are You Giving Your All? Ephesians 6:5-8, Revelations 3:14-16

Ephesians 6:5-5

5 Slaves, obey your earthly masters with respect and fear, and with sincerity of heart, just as you would obey Christ. 6 Obey them not only to win their favor when their eye is on you, but as slaves of Christ, doing the will of God from your heart. 7 Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, 8 because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

Revelations 3:14-16

“To the angel of the church in Laodicea write:

These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God’s creation. 15 I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! 16 So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.

Key Points

  • Without a sense of purpose, we have little energy, which leads to us holding back and hoarding with a scarcity mindset physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually.

  • The benefits of PURPOSE

  • Passion, Urgency, Releases power, Prayer life enhanced, Oneness, Stability, Enlightenment

  • It is time we grade our own paper to see if our heart is pumping fast with purpose or if we are pumping fast our brakes leading to paralysis.

  • When we put out our all it is amazing how we are at peace just knowing we did our best. When not giving our best we look around to blame others for not being all we can be.

  • We should do all as if we are doing it unto the Lord.

  • On the racetrack of life, we may start out seeing the purpose that we are chasing and lose focus and hope. When this occurs, we no longer see the purpose because it is so far ahead of us it appears to be behind us. We need regain the energy and passion to catch back up to God’s Divine purpose for us.

  • We cannot have rest or be perfectly blest until all is on the altar laid.
