By the Spirit

By the Spirit | KingdomNomics.comScripture: 2 Corinthians 13:14, NKJV

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.” (2 Corinthians 13:14, NKJV)

It is almost impossible to live life without encountering stress, fear, anxiety, and worry. But all of the above—the grace of Jesus, the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit—are needed for us to be consistently successful in overcoming stress, fear, anxiety, and worry in our lives.

The Path to Peace

The Path to Peace | KingdomNomics.cmScripture: Colossians 3:15, NLT

And let the peace that comes from Christ rule in your hearts. For as members of one body you are called to live in peace. And always be thankful.” (Colossians 3:15, NLT)

Jesus Christ is the source of our peace. He is the fountain of life. As believers, our relationship with him allows us to have access to this peace through SOAK, SOW, and FLOW, a process that is a basic principle in KingdomNomics.

Christ, the Chief Converterlator, Personified

Christ, the Chief Converterlator, Personified | Scripture: Colossians 1:12–14, NKJV

Giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:12–14, NKJV)

God the Creator is always creating, moving, transforming, and bringing everything into conformance with his will. He does this through his pure, unadulterated power: “God has spoken once, twice I have heard this: That power belongs to God.” (Psalm 62:11, NKJV)

These verses exude POWER!

Converterlating by Investing Time, Talent, and Treasure

Converterlating by Investing Time, Talent, and Treasure | Scripture: 2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV

And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.” (2 Corinthians 9:8, NIV)

As in salvation, the transforming power of God does all of the work in the CONVERTERLATING process. It is initiated by God, continued by God, and finished by God. We are the mere instruments, vessels, or modalities for the working power of God to perform in us and through us.

Seals, Reveals, and Deals

Seals, Reveals, and Deals | Scripture: 1 Corinthians 2:9–10, NLT

That is what the Scriptures mean when they say, ‘No eye has seen, no ear has heard, and no mind has imagined what God has prepared for those who love him.’ But it was to us that God revealed these things by his Spirit. For his Spirit searches out everything and shows us God’s deep secrets.” (1 Corinthians 2:9–10, NLT)

The Holy Spirit does all of the above. He seals us at the pivotal point of spiritual birth: “In him you also, when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation, and believed in him, were sealed with the promised Holy Spirit,” (Ephesians 1:13, ESV)

Converterlator Weaponry

Converterlator Weaponry | KingdomNomics.comScripture: 1 Thessalonians 2:13 and Ephesians 6:17

For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.” (Hebrews 4:12, NIV84)

And we also thank God continually because, when you received the word of God, which you heard from us, you accepted it not as the word of men, but as it actually is, the word of God, which is at work in you who believe.” (1 Thessalonians 2:13, NIV84)

The Big Weapon of the Consumerlator

We can have the proper perspective only through the prism of the cross of Jesus Christ | KingdomNomics.comScripture: Luke 16:11, NIV

So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?” (Luke 16:11, NIV)

The CONSUMERLATOR will use many weapons to blunt our efforts as effective CONVERTERLATORS of our time, talents, and treasures.

One of the most effective weapons the CONSUMERLATOR uses is worldly wealth. Remember, the CONSUMERLATOR wants us to spend all of our time and efforts on earthly matters that are in the process of perishing. The person who buys strictly into what the world system has to offer is going to end up with nothing in eternity.

Going, Going, Gone!

“Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Mark 13:31, NIV) | Scripture: Mark 13:31, NIV

Heaven and earth will pass away, but my words will never pass away.” (Mark 13:31, NIV)

This is an incredible statement! Everything is ultimately going to pass away. Our time, talents, and treasures will expire when we do. They will do us no good in eternity. We must use them while we are on this side of eternity.

We are like the shopper who has won a contest and is allowed to buy as many groceries as she can within a short period of time. When the time expires, the shopping spree ends.

The Battle: Converterlator vs. Consumerlator

Secular and spiritual battles rage all around us | Scripture: Matthew 10:16, NCV

There were two hundred leaders from Issachar. They knew what Israel should do, and they knew the right time to do it.” (1 Chronicles 12:32, NCV)

Listen, I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. So be as clever as snakes and as innocent as doves.” (Matthew 10:16, NCV)

We find ourselves in a world filled with all kinds of conflict. Conflict rages in both the seen and unseen realms. Secular forces battle spiritual forces all the time, but we often are only able to see the partial results of the battle.

Do Not Be a Consumerlator

God's Word shows us how to overcome those who try to destroy our impact for his kingdom | KingdomNomics.comScripture: 2 Timothy 4:10, NLT

Demas has deserted me because he loves the things of this life and has gone to Thessalonica. Crescens has gone to Galatia, and Titus has gone to Dalmatia.” (2 Timothy 4:10, NLT)

Demas deserted Paul because loved the temporary perishing things of this life more than the eternal aspects of life promoted by the gospel. Being actively involved as a CONVERTERLATOR is one of the best protections against falling into the plight of Demas. This brings another new word to be aware of as we navigate our way through this world: CONSUMERLATOR.
