“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.
God creates in the yield-active CONVERTERLATOR the God-given desire to give and invest our time, talents, and treasures in kingdom expansion. This God-given desire then develops into a God-driven action to do the investing.
As CONVERTERLATORS we have made the great discovery that our CONVERTERLATING the perishable into the imperishable results in “padding our eternal 401(k).” This is huge motivation for us.
As CONVERTERLATORS, we are to discover that CONVERTERLATING activity in our lives is the major gateway for God to work in our circumstances. CONVERTERLATING enables us to see the goodness of God’s Word, and it enables us to get a taste of the power of the coming age.
Creating the desire to CONVERTERLATE and trumping the desire to CONSUMERLATE on the perishing things of this world can be addicting!
We once again realize the critical importance of following the principles in KingdomNomics regarding the Word of God: Read it, eat it, live it, and God will perform his good Word toward you. Our “secular greed” is then increasingly replaced with a “spiritual greed.” Investing in kingdom advancement becomes more important to us than what this temporary, fleeting, and perishing world says is so important.
My 100-year-old aunt taught me a saying she learned in her early years in grade school: “A habit is like a cable. We weave it one strand each day until it becomes so strong it cannot be broken.”
I have taken the liberty to change word habit to faith. “Faith is like a cable. We weave it one strand each day until it becomes so strong, it cannot be broken.”
CONVERTERLATING not only becomes a habit, but it also becomes a modality process for increasing our faith relationship with God.
Today, ask yourself:
Am I weaving my faith into such a strong strand that it cannot be broken?
