"But what do you think? A man had two sons, and he came to the first and said, 'Son, go, work today in my vineyard.'
He answered and said, ' I will not,' but afterward he regretted it and went.
Then he came to the second son and said likewise. And he answered and said, 'I go, sir,' but he did not go. Which of the two did the will of his father?
They said to Him, 'the first."
Matthew 21:28-31a

Jesus was talking to the chief priests and the elders in the temple...Jesus told them afterward, "Assuredly, I say to you that tax collectors and harlots enter the kingdom of God before you."
We can not just talk about doing the will of the Father, we must actually do what He has called us to do. DON'T JUST TALK ABOUT IT..BE ABOUT IT!

God is not looking for people who are talking to everyone about the great things they are going to do for the Kingdom...God is not looking for people who have a lot of lip service..God is not looking for people who are trying to impress others by telling them what God has instructed them to do...
God is looking for people who will seek His direction and then step out and do the work. He is looking for people who will say yes.
Has God given you some work to do in the vineyard? Are you doing it? What is holding you back from being all that God has called you to be? What is keeping you from stepping out into the purpose God has given you?
DON'T JUST TALK ABOUT IT...BE ABOUT IT!

Are you distracted by things of the world?
"Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in HIm. For all that is in the world---the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life--is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of the it; but he who does the will of God abides forever." I John 2:15-17
What else is holding you back? Is it fear of not being able to do what you have been called to do?

God is not interested in your education or association; how you look or where you shop; He is not interested in where you live or how you live; what size you are or what color you are; He is not interested in how gifted you are or how many talents you have; It does not matter if you are married or single; young or old; what you have or what you wear; He is not interested in the size of your house or the make of your car;
God is not asking if you are educated enough or sophisticated enough; He is not asking if you been trained and taught; He is not asking if you are prepared and qualified; He does not care if your past looks bad and your present is unsure...God is looking for some willing vessels.
He does not call the equipped; He equips the called!!!
DON'T TALK ABOUT IT...BE ABOUT IT!

God is looking for some people who are ready to do His will.
He is not looking for pew sitters, but world changers.

DON'T JUST TALK ABOUT IT...BE ABOUT IT!
"Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do..." John 14:12 NKJV



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

It's so easy to talk about it, and make wonderful plans. How we need God's grace to help us follow through. Thankyou for the reminder.
