The Grace Factor – David Ibiyeomie

To succeed in life goes beyond strength, expertise and will power because the three factors have their limits. GRACE is the only thing that is superior to all of them as its effect is unfathomable.

According to Billy Graham, when we come to the end of ourselves, we come to the beginning of God. Your best does not equal the least of God. The least of God is far more than the best of God. Grace makes man succeed without sweat. Grace is simply the God-factor in the race of life.

Grace which is divine help is the secret of Salvation Ministries. It makes an ordinary man become extra-ordinary. Great men do not conclude their stories without the grace of God. Grace is simply God’s hand upon an individual or organization for speed like in 1Kings 18:46 where God’s hand came upon Elijah and he outran Ahab

When you ignore grace, you end up in disgrace. It is not how fluent or skillful one is that makes him great; it is the grace of God. That is what Salvation Ministries is enjoying.

Salvation Ministries started inside one room with hard-wooden bench. From there, she move to a canopy and which gives way anytime rain fell but today, Grace has brought her this far in just 20 years.

Grace anoints the unlikable candidates. If people are not surprised at the happenings in your life, then, you are not enjoying grace. Grace makes you great; it covers your errors and colors your efforts. The difference between a struggling Christian and a successful Christian is Grace

To access grace, you must be humble (James 4:6). It takes humility to obey God’s instructions because every time God gives you an instruction, he has a miracle in mind. To despise the small days is to miss the great things. Another way to enjoy grace is by crying for it according to Heb. 4:16

Grace can take you from the pit to the peak and from the back to the front.

Salvation Ministries started April 13th 1997 with the mandate to establish the kingdom of God here on earth. It began with 34 persons: 15 males, 10 females and 9 children in attendance but today, Grace has brought us here and is still taking us further.

I see God beautifying your life with grace as you humble yourself and thirst for it in Jesus name – Amen!!!

 

 

 

  • KINGDOM ADDICTION

God is not an opportunist. Life on earth is about investments; it is only

those who make deposits that man make withdrawals. You cannot

withdraw from a bank that you did not make deposit in. if you aim at

nothing, you will hit nothing. In God’s agenda, every harvest must start

with a seed; you cannot reap where you have not sown (Ecc. 3:2)

Jesus had to lay down His life before He could take it again. Sometimes,

we want blessings but we don’t want the responsibilities that come with

  1. (John 12:24)(John 10:17-18)

As you lay down your life for His service, you will never remain the same

in Jesus name!

Addiction originated from the word ‘Addict’. An addict is someone who is

devoted to or surrenders himself habitually to the control and in9uence

of a thing or person. He is someone, who without compulsion, likes and

enjoys something so much that he spends time, valuable resources and

energy in doing it, for example a drug addict.

An addict is a devotee; a fanatic and one who is obsessed or possessed

by something or someone. He is someone who is accustomed to a thing

or person that he cannot stay away or live without that thing or person.

He is so sold-out to that thing

An addict is someone who allows himself to be in9uenced and controlled

by something or someone he loves and holds in high esteem

Kingdom addiction is joyfully allowing God to exercise full ownership

and control over your life, time, resources, career and decisions towards

the advancement of God’s course on earth.

It is to be sold-out to God so much so that nothing in life matters to you

except those things that matter to God.

Kingdom addiction is to be devoted to God and His work. It is the

readiness to live and die for God’s course on earth without due

consideration to self.

It is feeling what God feels and allow only what moves God to move you.

It is humanity allowing divinity to dominate and exercise absolute

  • control over her; interrupting her activities any day and time; spirit soul

and body.

It is having the habit of being obsessed with the mentality and lifestyle

of promoting God’s course and advancing His kingdom.

Life is of no worth if you are not living it for Christ. Most Christians have

accepted Christ as their savior but have not made Him the Lord of their

lives; they are not dedicated to Him. There is a great di<erence between

Altar call and dedication.

Altar call does not guarantee heaven; otherwise, Judas would have made

heaven. He accepted Christ as his master but was not dedicate to Him.

So, so not get carried away by the altar call you made; you must be sold-

out to Him if you want to make heaven.

Kingdom addiction calls for total surrendering of all you are, all you own

and all you do. It is a total dedication to God.

Kingdom addiction is the secret behind earthly distinction. Until you are

sold out to God, you cannot stand out in life.

There are >ve cardinal points or principal pillars of kingdom addiction

and they include:

 

 

Vineyard addiction is about becoming addicted to fellowship; when

coming to church becomes a delight. David was so addicted to fellowship

that he went to the temple three times to pray and seven times to praise

daily. He was the wealthiest and the most powerful man in his time, ye,

he had time for God. People who avoid fellowship usually get into

trouble.

When you are addicted to God’s presence, you enjoy divine health,

obtain joy and gladness; and God reveals His ways to you among other

bene>ts

  • Fishing and hunting addiction is about being addicted to soul winning.

The primary reason you are born again is to save others. You have no

justi>cation to condemn a sinner you have not preached to. Your love for

God is fake if you are not interested in soul winning. Use everything you

have to bring them to Jesus.

Capital investment addiction involves serving God with your >nances

while a<ection addiction is simply being committed to God

delightsomely. It is your a<ection for the kingdom that triggers your

rapid promotion and guarantees your earthly distinction.

Finally, stewardship addiction is when you are addicted to serving God.

Stop waiting for big titles and start serving with all your heart. Every

title in the church is a call to service and fruit bearing.

When you are addicted in the areas listed above, God will cause you to

be distinguished here on earth, your coast will be enlarged and God,
