Yesterday I began sharing about the difference between Performers and Reformers and this week I will continue to share on the subject.
When you quit practicing what you know and what God calls you to do, you lose your passion.
Our example is King David. That’s when most of us start to CRY OUT, when we have lost our priority and and find we have misplaced our passion.
Lust and Pure Passion differ in what we birth. One lives and one dies.
King David quit running to the battle and started running from it.
He lost the passion of the kid in the pasture when he found himself in the palace.
Comfort silences the cry of a performer-it’s a megaphone for a reformer!!!
The question then is do we have the character to receive what we cry out for?
Do we have the kind of character that God can trust to take us places?
Some have lost their passion on a lower level so God in His mercy won’t let them go to a higher level.
We all have a little crazy but some people get a subscription. I personally am a subscriber for life.
A reformer is someone who brings about reformation. A reformer is someone who changes things. The word reform means "to shape again." Reformers are those who reshape the individuals, families, churches, cities, regions and nations over which God has given them influence. Not everyone is going to want to subscribe to a life like this.
Think about John Knox: He prayed, fought and persevered for almost 15 years until he saw Scotland set free from religious oppression.
God used John Knox to bring reformation to his nation.
Think about Martin Luther: Four hundred ninety-nine years ago, Luther forever changed the church, his city and his nation. Martin Luther reshaped so much that we are still talking about him today.
In this hour, God is looking for people who are ready to reform and not perform.
