Do you teach others how to move mountains?
Every one of us has been given the power to command anything and it will come to be. The Bible told us that whatever we declare here on earth shall be established in heaven – this is the level of authority we have in Christ. In the world today, people are faced with different challenges that are huge and can cause many to give up on themselves and God. However, the Bible has directed us to stand firm in faith and use that power in the name of Jesus.
Everyone has his or her mountain to face. These mountains could be that problem you are facing at the place of work, in the family, at school, or anywhere. They are always showing up every time you want to move forward. This is why you have to speak up and tell your mountain who your God is and who you are in Christ. Zerubbabel knew he has been given the power to command the mountain before him to give way and he used it. Zechariah 4:7 “‘Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel, you shall become a plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Grace, grace to it!”
What should we tell our mountains, what is that thing that they need to hear from us so they can give way? It is just one thing and that is to tell them how great our God is and how he has given us the power to command in the name of Jesus.
We might think this shouldn’t be news to anyone, but the truth is that many people do not know that they have been given this power too and this is why we must bring it to their notice and make them see that we can tell our mountains that we have a great God. We must play our part in getting this news to people – it is the right thing to do. We should not just assume people know about this already but make a move.
There are multiple ways by which we can achieve this. Many people have taken it upon themselves to make use of the media to tell people about their power in Jesus. There are different ways to spread this good news and one of them is by getting this message inscribed on a t-shirt. Wherever you go and people see you, they see the message you are passing even without talking. This is another level of preaching the good news to everyone and it can be very efficient.
One important thing that is requested of every Christian to do is to spread the love, to extend love, and then tell people about the love of God. One of the commands Jesus gave to the Christians is to preach the gospel. Telling people about Jesus, about the kingdom of God which can be done in many different ways. Some people choose to print books or pamphlets, produce radio or television programs, or by using social media. What is important is to make the good news and the goodness of God known to all the people God brings before you. The essence of expressing our beliefs through Christian clothing is to spread the gospel to people – the clothes we wear can carry an important message that will be seen by others.
Since the world looks more into fashion, there is a need to create an awareness or get the attention of the people so that they can see what you wear and get the message you are preaching. The Bible says whatever we do must give glory to God and this includes what we wear. Colossians 3:17 “And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.” This means we are not limited to any style of preaching – we can use any method as long as it glorifies the name of our Lord.
Not everyone can deal with their challenges – not everyone has been shown love and helped to overcome their problems. You can make a big difference and God is counting on you to make a huge difference by affecting lives positively with the message you preach through what you put on. The world is dying, and they need you. Romans 8:19 “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.” This is the time that whatever you do must preach the power of God, whatever you put on or whatever you say must tell of the power of God and let people know what they can tell their mountain.
