The heart of God is a powerful thing! It's more than a teaching; it's a personal connection to an all-powerful and loving being!
We are conduits of glory yet to be seen upon the earth. We are beloved sons and daughters, walking with revelation knowledge of heaven and a faith-filled assurance of the goodness of God's heart toward us and others.
Believer, you were designed to be connected to the power source of compassion and love. In our ministry we practice heart connection and love evangelism, and as a result we see the impossible happen. We practice connecting with hearts and not just operating in the gifts of the Spirit.
Our focus is the person in front of us and the heart of the Father for that person. Our agenda is love and the agenda of heaven. The agenda of heaven is always reconnection, it is always together. From the garden to the ascension, it's always been about reconnection. This is why the apostle Paul states that believers are now given the ministry of reconciliation.
"So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people's sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation" (2 Cor. 5:16-19, NIV).
Christ was in the world not imputing sins but reconciling the world to God the Father through the forgiveness of sin. Beloved, we now carry the torch of reconciliation and reconnection back to the Father. We are to represent Christ in this new creation life as a minister of reconciliation. Our portion of ministry involves pointing to the work of Jesus and demonstrating the heart of God toward people.
"We are therefore Christ's ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ's behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God" (2 Cor. 5:20-21).
Beloved, in order to demonstrate the heart of God you must first be connected to His heart for them. When ministering we start with a greeting and seek to establish a connection to the person in front of us. From there we begin to establish a rapport with that person and a heart connection.
We can then hear their heart, empathize with compassion and connect with the heart of God for that person. Ultimately, our goal is to help connect them back to the power supply for whatever they need.
