From Luke’s narrative we can extract five most valuable life-lessons:
1. God overrules the affairs of men. “External circumstances are something, but they’re not everything.” “God governs creation as a loving father, working all things for good.”
#Trust fully in divine providence.
2. Life is first and foremost a matter of attitude. #Adopt a godly attitude. 3. Growth is a process that needs to be embraced and fully cooperated with. #Submit joyfully to the process of growth, 4. Greatness is not necessarily bigness. #Walk simply in humility. 5. Worship of God is universally an individual choice. #Choose to be a true worshiper of Yahweh.
God blesses his people for a reason. 1. For all men to know who your God is (Exodus 3:13-15). 2. For all men to see the difference between his people and the rest (Malachi 3:13-18). What makes you the people of God? a. Born into the family by the precious blood of the lamb b. Attracted to purity c. Devoted wholly to him d. Acknowledge that they are mere stewards of the resources entrusted to them e. Made the worship of Yahweh their life's mission 3. For you to be empowered in life (Psalm 33:12). The first blessings you can receive from God: Protection (preservation and provision), Pardon (grace and mercy). Peace (total satisfaction).

KINGDOM ECONOMICS - From wealth-creation to wealth-management.
Part II: “Wealth in the hands of those who live right”
Wealth in God’s economy is generated by faith through wisdom, understanding, and knowledge. Wealth in the hands of a righteous is to establish God’s covenant in the earth.
DEUTERONOMY 8:18; 1 TIMOTHY 6:17-19; JAMES 5:1-6
1.The principle of wealth in God’s
“If you obey God, you will have something to leave your grandchildren. If you don’t obey God, those who live right will get what you leave.” PROVERBS 13:22 (CEV); see also PROVERBS 3:9-10
2. The purpose of wealth in God’s economy
Wealth is for worship.
- Generosity : 2 CORINTHIANS 8:1-5; 1 TIMOTHY 6:17-19
- Growth : LUKE 7:1-5; ACTS 16:11-15
- Gain : 2CORINTHIANS 8:8-15
3. The problem of wealth among God’s people
- Tends to ensnare its possessor : PROVERBS 18:10-11; 1TIMOTHY 6:9-10; JAMES 5:1-6
- Tends to fly away : PROVERBS 23:5; ECCLESIASTES 2:26; LUKE 19:11-13, 20-27
- Tends to give a false sense of ownership : DEUTERONOMY 8:10-17; LUKE 12:13-21
“The biggest difference between rich people and wealthy people is in the choices and decisions they make every day, plus they behaviour around money.”

Understanding God’s nature, even slightly, will boost your faith thus setting you on course for victorious living.
" In fact, this is love for God: to keep his commands. And his commands are not burdensome, for everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith."
Four encouraging facts about our Lord:
1. He’s alive and rules over the affairs of men.
EXODUS 3:7-10, 19; DEUTERONOMY 4:19-20; PSALM 24:8-10; ISAIAH 6:1-3; DANIEL 4:26; MATTHEW 6:9-10; HEBREWS 6:16-20 *Our God sees, hears, feels, and reacts.
2. He’s personal and specific. EXODUS 3:13-15; LEVITICUS 25:39-43; 1SAMUEL 22:1-2; JEREMIAH 34:14; LUKE 14:21
3. He responds to faith in an extraordinary way.
MATTHEW 9:18-26 (woman with the issue of blood);
MARK 10:46-52 (Blind Bartimaeus)
LUKE 19:1-10 (Tax collector Zachaeus)
4. He gives to his people wisdom to live by.
PROVERBS 4:7; PROVERBS 24:3-4; JAMES 1:5-8 JEREMIAH 8:22
There’s a big gulf between profession and practice. Claiming to trust God and to be his people and yet live in contradiction defeats our Christian faith.
Seeing with the eyes of faith is such a powerful thing! But submitting to the law of love is even better.
WHAT WILL YOU DO WHEN YOUR ENEMY IS DELIVERED INTO YOUR HAND?
a) Punish, b) Banish, c) Vanish
a) Forgive, b) Love, c) Release
1. The power of submitting to God.
Luke 22:39-43; Philippians 2:5-9; James 4:7
2. The power of the sovereign law
Proverbs 25:21-22; Proverbs 24:17-18; Exodus 23:4-5; Matthew 5:44-48; Matthew 6:12-15; Romans 12:17-20

One way to evaluate spiritual maturity is by looking at the choices we - the way people live will tell you their level of spiritual maturity. "Faith" - is strong and vigorous trust based on the character and capacity of God. The struggle of many christians is that they do not know God. God is always moved when He sees you trust Him implicitly. The perseverance of faith is an essential nature of spiritual maturity. The greatest resources on which you can depend to hold onto your faith are God's character and God's capacity
You can never be committed to God fully or committed to wealth fully. Lord – Yahweh Adonai. Where you choose to invest your trust decides where you end up or how you end up in life. We end up being what we are because of the choices we make. The Power of the name – Names are used to distinguish, describe (define), associate nature, character or attributes. Some of us do not know how to maximise the name of the Lord – God is powerful. God is just not Yahweh, He is Yahweh Adonai. Never neglect the power of a name – it opens or closes doors (opportunities). God is a faithful God. As you mature, begin to make dangerous prayers – God’s word is truth, he can never lie. God is not moved about your current situation, He is sure about His power.
For revival to come and be maintained, there are things that need to be done. God has always wanted for His presence to be a blessing and not a curse . Every time that God turns up, it is for a blessing. Every time that revival turns up, something goes wrong for other people as a result of disobedience.
Throughout generations, God has always scattered His people as seeds to respond to the needs of His humanity. As seeds in Gods' hands we don't have to choose where God must plant us but to go where He is scattering us to. It's not by chance that you are where you are today, it is His plan for your life. The church exists to do what matters to God.
What kind of people does God us to fulfill His purpose?
The scattered community (Acts 8:4-8)
1. People shaped by the word of God (Jeremiah 20:7-9)
2. People filled with the Holy Spirit (Acts1:8)
3. People strengthened by faith (Matthew 17:18-20)
4. People energized through prayer (Acts 4:31)
5. People compelled by love (2 Corinthians 5:14-20)
What Really is going on in our city?
- City life has always a dark side to it
- The church must not be ignorant of its mandate in the city
- The church must be discerning the real issues in the city.
Where to from here?
- The church must move from praise to proclamation
- From ministry to mission
