Today's message... By Pastor Victor
Bible reading was from Ephesians 3: 1-16

 Christ has done it all, but in order to maximize what Christ has done believers have got to act.. This is what apostle Paul understood  3:1KJV:For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
We have been called to make men as God's own disciples, our purpose is to run a ministry in the life of men.. Purpose needs to be well defined,  
3:2 KJV:If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:

when you understand your purpose God gives you grace to run it. The people you are sent to have to know you've been sent to them, that will happen when you first know and believe you've been sent to them, a well defined purpose.

3:3KJV:How that by revelation he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
   
You have to get a revelation for your purpose because it is first a mystery.

3:4KJV:Whereby, when ye read, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
     
The long run of your life will be an expression of your knowledge, it very important that as a person you get the knowledge of who Christ is. Understand your knowledge in the mystery of Jesus.


3:5KJV:Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men, as it is now revealed unto his holy apostles and prophets by the Spirit;
6
KJV:That the Gentiles should be fellowheirs, and of the same body, and partakers of his promise in Christ by the gospel:
7
KJV:Whereof I was made a minister, according to the gift of the grace of God given unto me by the effectual working of his power.
8
KJV:Unto me, who am less than the least of all saints, is this grace given, that I should preach among the Gentiles the unsearchable riches of Christ;
9
KJV:And to make all men see what is the fellowship of the mystery, which from the beginning of the world hath been hid in God, who created all things by Jesus Christ:
10
KJV:To the intent that now unto the principalities and powers in heavenly places might be known by the church the manifold wisdom of God,
11
KJV:According to the eternal purpose which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:
12
KJV:In whom we have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him.
13
KJV:Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my tribulations for you, which is your glory.

We need to partake in God's divine promise via the gospel and it is expedient for us to spread this gospel abroad, we've been commissioned and empowered.
What you are willing to give up for what you want to see will tell if you will really see what you desire. If something higher is not driving you, you cannot affect people higher than ur sphere.. Something has to be driving you that is visible to you, but may not be visible to your spectators..

14
KJV:For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15
KJV:Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,
16
KJV:That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man.

If the cause does not bring you to bowing your knees it is not yet a cause, as this is one of the tribulations for Glory..
