WHY WE NEED MORE ‘SOUL’ MODELS THAN ‘ROLE’ MODELS…

wp-1487529517136.jpgHave you ever had God deposit something in your spirit that just made you say, “Wow!” Something that’s so simple, yet so profound? That’s how I felt when He dropped this in my spirit…

We need SOUL MODELS rather than ROLE MODELS.

Role models show you how to live.

Soul models show you how to live, but prepare you to die.

Role models show you how to live now.

Souls models show you how to live forever.

Role models give you tools to live by.

Soul models give you tools to live and die by.

Role models show you how to look on the outside.

Soul models show you how to look on the inside.

Role models teach us how to be a man or woman.

Soul models teach us to be GREATER than man or woman.

Which do you want to be?

1 Peter 2:12 (NKJV)

12 having your conduct honorable among the Gentiles, that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may, by your good works which they observe, glorify God in the day of visitation.

Titus 2:7-8 (NKJV)

7 in all things showing yourself to be a pattern of good works; in doctrine showing integrity, reverence, incorruptibility, 8 sound speech that cannot be condemned, that one who is an opponent may be ashamed, having nothing evil to say of you.

BE BLESSTIFIED!

GET PISSED OFF ‘JUST’ ENOUGH TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE…

Don’t get angry AND sin; Get angry AT sin…

Matthew 21:12-13 (NKJV)

12 Then Jesus went into the temple of God and drove out all those who bought and sold in the temple, and overturned the tables of the money changers and the seats of those who sold doves. 13 And He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you have made it a ‘den of thieves.’”

As Jesus walked in and saw the building dedicated to God’s worship being used for commerce, He was filled with anger.

He wasn’t consumed with anger…

He wasn’t ‘mad’…

He wasn’t pissed off…

It was a controlled, righteous anger.

God’s righteous anger is noted throughout the bible, but God doesn’t angry AND sin;

He gets angry AT sin.

God tells us to get angry and sin not…


Ephesians 4:26 (NIV)

“In your anger do not sin” Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry…”


God doesn’t expect us to get angry and stay angry.

God doesn’t expect us to get angry and lose control.

God DOES expect us to get angry sometimes though…

He just expects us to get angry at the right things.

We are to get angry enough at…

Evil…

Injustice…

Disobedience…

Poverty…

Hunger…

Racism…

Corruption…

Bullying…

Abuse…

Drugs…

Crime…

War…

Abuse…

Oppression…

Homelessness…

Hunger…

Favoritism…

Cronyism…

Atheism…

False teaching…

False prophets…

Ignorance….

We’re supposed get angry enough to do something!

Our anger should turn into PASSION that fuels ACTION.

Think about what makes you angry. And pray for wisdom to do something about it with a level head, yet walking in the Fruit of the Spirit.

Just as Christ did, we are to get angry AT sin, not angry AND sin.

BE BLESSTIFIED!
