Why Did You Come?

Why Did You Come?

Sunday Message Summary, 20 June 2021

Why are you here on Earth? Why did you come? This is a question that all of us need to answer and need to know. Christianity is a calling, so there is a cause, purpose, and reason. Each and every person in the Kingdom of God is deployed by the Holy Spirit. Our general calling is to build the Kingdom of God, but what have you been called into specifically as an individual? There is no idleness permitted in the true Kingdom of God because we are filled with the Spirit of servanthood, not laziness. What each one of us contributes and does causes the Kingdom of God, the body of Christ, and the church to grow (Ephesians 4:16). We are thus all fellow-builders of the Kingdom of God, but we must each play our role for the Kingdom to grow.

In the Kingdom of God there are offices (apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers) that have been given by Jesus for the training of believers for the building of the church, body of Christ, and Kingdom of God (Ephesians 4:11-12). They have oversight in the Kingdom to maintain order and responsibility, because the Kingdom of God is a kingdom of order and responsibility. Every born-again child of GOD has been called under someone because a servant is not a servant without a superior. Jesus left us with a pattern of discipleship and servanthood, and such discipleship consists of a mentor-mentee, teacher-learner, authority-submission relationship, so GOD takes His servants through the school of the Holy Spirit. In the Kingdom of God there is oversight, responsibility, and accountability, and GOD has given accountability and responsibility of our lives to somebody else. GOD knows we need it.

A person’s measure of spirituality can easily be gauged by their level of servanthood and submission; and servanthood and submission are not an act, but the attitude of the heart. In the Kingdom of God everything must be done out of the sincerity of the heart, fearing GOD, not merely offering eyeservice (Colossians 3:22-24). What sets us apart as disciples and makes us identifiable with Jesus is the presence of the Holy Spirit in and over our lives. If we are truly following servants of GOD, we shall be known by the Holy Spirit in us. Servanthood is the standard for promotion in the school of the Spirit, so if we have not been obedient and faithful to the person GOD has placed us under, we should forget about GOD entrusting us (Luke 16:12). We will be blessed and rewarded in accordance with our service and obedience to the person GOD has placed us under.

In these last days, GOD has spoken to us through His Son Jesus, and no longer through the prophets, through whom He spoke to our forefathers in the old era (Hebrews 1:1-2). Jesus continues speaking to the church through the apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers that He has given. No one can appoint themselves into any of these offices, but it is Jesus who gave them to the church (Ephesians 4:7;11-12). When we obey our spiritual leaders, GOD will bless us (Hebrews 13:17), but He will not bless nor reward us if we are insubordinate to the person GOD has placed us under. A continuous breakthrough only comes through the person GOD has placed us under, because GOD cannot ordain order and then go around the order He has ordained. We must therefore be aligned to the order of GOD.

A person’s measure of spirituality can easily be gauged by their level of servanthood and submission.
