OF EXCELLENCE II
Apostle Grace Lubega
Romans 15:18 (KJV); For I will not dare to speak of any of those things which Christ hath not wrought by me, to make the Gentiles obedient, by word and deed,
Men obey in word and deed what is evidently working in us.
If God has not worked something in you and by you, you cannot communicate it with sufficient authority to convince a man to desire what is upon your life.
For example, if God has not built a ministry through you, how will you teach men to build ministries?
If God has not taught you how to build wealth, how do you teach men to acquire and retain wealth?
When we teach and invite men into any grace, it is not from impressive lines borrowed out of sermons and books we read. We minister from places in God.
When a man teaches what has not worked in him, he is claiming a place in the spirit that is not his. The result is that he will minister falsehood and questions into the hearts of his hearers.
You would rather know little and demonstrate much of the little you know than know much and demonstrate nothing of what you know.

GOLDEN NUGGET: When we teach and invite men into any grace, it is not from impressive lines borrowed out of sermons and books we read. We minister from places in God.
PRAYER: Loving Father, I thank You for this truth. Thank You for what You are doing in my life. Thank You because I am a result of divine discipline and chastisement. I minister out of the abundance of the things that You have taught and instructed, in this, I bless many, to the glory of Your name, Amen.
