'A HOUSE OF INFLUENCE' no2

3. IT IS A HOUSE THAT HOLDS AN ETERNAL PERSPECTIVE
V14 this is my resting place forever, here I will dwell because I have desired it.


I love the way the writer of the book of Hebrews explains the attitude of Jesus in chapter 12.2; “looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despised the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Jesus has left us an inspiring example, in that he never lost sight of His eternal vision, no matter what He went through. Churches of influence build with an eternal perspective that passes from one generation to another.


4. IT IS A HOUSE OF ABUNDANCE
V15 I will abundantly bless her provision


Abundance is at the very nature of God, and He never does things sparingly. It is important to live life with the knowledge that God is our source. Churches of influence know how to access God’s provision by faith, and do not live in lack.
