We need more of Jesus....all the time....every day. Especially in America, we find ourselves highly ambitious. Motivation levels are quite strong among us. We are workers. We like work. We like results.

This love for labor can inadvertently prove to be a block in the kingdom system. God wants us to work; but He wants that work to be in the stream of His love and power. Our own strength is contaminated with superficiality. It won't hold up and it won't produce.

Do work. Do lots of it. I enjoy it. But the more it is in the flow of Jesus instead of my own shade-tree kind, the more the fruit looks healthy.

We will find ourselves at many turns debating whether to apply muscle or faith. Faith muscle is what builds strong children...and churches. Trust the faith muscle.....his name is Jesus.
