You cannot live next to Jesus if you are an opportunist (doing things for your own interest). An opportunist does not serve God but work for themselves. For example, Elisha served Elijah whole heartedly; the prodigal son only wanted his inheritance. Prodigal ministries always end in misery. The only person an opportunist serves is self. A priest serves God. Many people focus on their destinies instead of serving God. Your destiny is Jesus, He is the purpose and goal.
You have authority to influence. You cannot follow Jesus if you have not broken away from worldly influence. True leadership is following the Master Jesus. Authority frees us from slavery. You cannot live in close relationship with God if you are a slave to the world.
The four creatures were created by God according to His expectation of total adoration. Each creature reflects the character of Jesus. The inner circle of God is the circle of the living. Circle of living = your intimate communion with God.

There are good works that will please God and there are good works that will please our conscience. There can never be true good work which is not from God. Not all good work is done with the right motive. Never do good works as a way of vengeance (proving a point). Beware of living a life focused on just attaining and neglecting the real focus of good works which is to please God.
The power for you to do good work is connected to God’s presence being with you. You need to know Whom you have believed. You serve others more effectively once your relationship with God is stable and secure. God is able to anoint you to ensure that everything He planned for you to do is successful.
For good works to happen in our lives and through our lives we need the presence of God. Good works require the power of God to be released. God must be involved for good works to happen. Anointing of good works requires preparation of character for God to be able to manifest his power.
