Becoming a Liberator

“Becoming a Liberator”

How does one find what God wants them to become an expert in amidst a jungle of social problems? The answer is simple, and it employs two biblical principles. First, what issues have captured your heart? In Ephesians 3:1, the Apostle Paul says, “For this reason I, Paul, the prisoner of Christ Jesus for the sake of you Gentiles.” Paul did what he did because a particular group of people had captured his heart. In his case, it was the Gentiles (nations). If you will pray and watch where your heart goes, you will begin to discover the people and issues that God has put on your heart (Psalm 37.4).

Second, God asked Moses in Exodus 4:2, “What is that in your hand?” God always gives us clues as to where He wants us to go by asking us to identify the resources we already have. Do you have a trade, a skill, or a degree in a particular field? What spiritual or political issues do you find yourself always going back to? These resources are a clue to what God wants you to do. He plans our lives long before we discover what those plans are. He prepared our resources long before most of us even notice them. Who is in your heart? What is in your hand? As you begin to answer these questions, you will find the purposes of ministry the Lord has given to you.

The highest service that any man or woman can do is to serve the purposes of God in their own generation. The Liberator hungers to be relevant and to make a difference. He or she is not content simply to go to heaven. Each is inwardly desperate to see the law and love of heaven kiss the earth. The Lord’s prayer is frequently upon his lips when he rises and when he lies down at night. “Father what can I do to see your church spread the Kingdom to the souls and institutions upon the earth more effectively?”

The Liberator knows that every self-seeking reality must bow before Christ, be it the soul of a man or the soul of a nation. And he is giving himself to see that happen in the home, in the school, in the marketplace, and in the government. The Liberator knows that the battlefield is the mind; the territory to be won is the earth; and that which is to be discipled is God’s political creation called the nations. And that is…


And the Lord said, ‘’Who then is the faithful and sensible steward, whom his master will put in charge of his servants, to give them their rations at the proper time? Blessed is that slave whom his master finds so doing when he comes. Truly I say to you, that he will put him in charge of all his possessions. —Luke 12:42-44
