Work is the process of creatively transforming chaos into order for the benefit of both God and my fellow Man. When you have done what you are meant to do, what is the impact of your intervention onto the environment? The primary purpose of work is not about profit first, rather a steady process of transforming a human being so that he can reflect the image of his creator.
When you give your tithe, it is a reflection of your obedience to God. God feeds on your obedience. A tithe is a share reserved for God. Your blessings are attached to your obedience to God's Word. When you obey God, He will never withhold any good thing from you. Obedience will make God surprise you.
The purpose of a vision is for it to be implemented. "In every community there are bright, godly, loving people willing to benefit both God and their fellow Man." In 2019 our pursuit is to raise the value of: Work through City Leaders and Evangelism. Raise the value of intercession (City Lighthouse) and networking - City Social Presence.

A local Church is a gathering of a people called out of this world system in order to function under the Lordship of Jesus Christ. Life in a local Church was meant to be both fulfilling and fruitful. With a key mandate to glory God and to edify God's people.
The dilemma of faith is when things seem to be contrary to the word of God. We can guarantee wins through losses by getting to Know Him (his character), know the Plans He has for you and have Faith in Him.
God is moving us to a state of being blessed (productive
and fulfilled) but we need to partner with him. Partnership with Him requires us to observe certain critical principles: 1) Acknowledging God as your source. 2) Doing God’s work God’s way. 3) Acting in faith.
God always shows up at set time in the lives of His people. God visits to comfort His people and to transition them from one state to another. True comfort and compassion cannot be found outside of God. God's visitation requires preparation, removing any obstacles. For preparation ushers God's glory.
Your relationship with Christ is influenced by what you believe to be true. Thoughts lead to belief and belief leads to behaviour. You cannot follow Christ and live contrary. People are attracted by an attractive behaviour.

Once your heart is fixed you don't have to worry about your behaviour. Purpose and motive trump over activities. If there is true life then fake life also exists. Wealth accumulation without kingdom purpose is a fake life. Nothing is ever enough if you are pursuing to only accumulate wealth. True life requires partnership with God. "God never calls people to make them less than they are". Saying yes to the call of God is wisdom. You can never say yes to the call of God on your life and live a mediocre life.

Living God’s way makes life productive and fulfilling.
1) Blessing is the work of God. The foundation of true blessing is made of:divine presence, divine purpose, divine power (Gen. 12:1-3). 2) Divine Blessing gives human life meaning and possibilities. The blessing of God has the capacity to affect drastically: i) what we have, ii) what we know, iii) what we do iv) who we are (Prov. 10:22). 3) There is a way Divine Blessing flows to human life. The blessing of God does not flow randomly; it requires intentionality:
i) Separation - call for detachment, devotion, and dedication (Exod. 19:1-6), ii) Signs (reminders of God’s greatness, glory, and grace) Genesis 18:9-14), iii) Seasons - celebration of opportunities, wisdom, boldness, etc. (1 Chron. 12:32), iv) Sequence - invitation to decision, determination, discipline, and diligence (Prov. 13:11).
