In an increasingly noisy and distracted world, good Christians are being pulled in so many different directions.
Distracted by social media, pressured by #FOMO...
Lured by social pressure and the siren call of societal "must-haves"...
Keeping up with family expectations...and different social circles...
Maintaining a healthy romantic relationship or marriage...
All while trying to do your best, so that you can progress at work or grow your business.
It is becoming so much easier for good Christians to become weighed down.
We've all seen it.
Mental and emotional disease is impacting our generation more than any other bodily sickness or disease!
The good Christian intends to do good, yet can't help but feel stretched... with a burn out that he can't afford possibly in the horizon.
He often feels lured into faster, easier, get rich quicker distractions of the devil.
He tries to fight with His faith...
He intentionally seeks God in the pockets of time he finds himself with...
Yet he struggles to feel certain if God answers or has truly answered him.
He feels the pressure and weight of having to strive... do more... earn more... say more... stand out more!
But oftentimes instead...
The well-meaning Christian feels yanked in so many different directions that he tires out... barely even before each race begins.
If that's you, don't worry my friend.
As a working millennial Christian in our extremely fast paced digital age of AI... very smart competition... increasing costs... I feel you.
It annoyed and greatly disappointed me that despite how vast and rich the Internet has become...
No one online had the answers or at least didn't share them in a way that was relatable, concise and uniquely applicable!
Although sometimes YouTube videos by pastors gave glimpses of what could be...
The bubble of faith and its effects quickly evaporated as the week went by...
There was often NO practical toolkit or blueprint to breakthrough or break out or break free!
This led me to spending over 14 months and investing more than $1,500 of my own money into
- religious text
- biblical geographical maps
So that I can better understand how to apply kingdom principles, bible teachings, repeatable holy-men instructions or "godliness" for our gain.
So far, the fruits have been extremely eye-opening and positive. More on this next time!
It starts with acknowledging this one thing:
ALL CHRISTIANS must do away with this false idea of "religiosity".
To suffer is NOT GODLINESS. (Suffering well is different matter)
We simply cannot accept this as our fate and yet expect for blessings to come our way.
A struggling, constantly lacking, diseased and ceaselessly begging Christian cannot glorify God in manner than expands His Kingdom...
As much as someone who is prospering and constantly blessing those around them.
Godly Gain was created to help the former on their journey to become the latter.
Biblically strong prospering Christians.
And no, I do not just mean financially
(Note: this isn't the place for you, if that's solely all that you're into).
At Godly Gain, we believe that it all begins by deepening and developing a richer relationship with God.
While on earth, other than through prayers, we have been gifted with the Holy Spirit and the Word of God.
By spending time with both...
We gain a richer understanding of God's intentions for us to represent Him well while on earth and help bless those around us, such that more may come to know of Him.
If Jesus was a distressed diseased penniless man constantly in need, who performed no miracles...
Do think the earliest followers of faith would have followed him?
Ask yourself that and answer it honestly.
We are called to be like Jesus, in our time on Earth!
