Your ministry can’t fulfill your soul nor make you happy; only Jesus can.
International evangelist Michael Koulianos shares a message about how our works and even ministries can never fulfill our souls. Many of us try to live a life pleasing to God. We try to get it all right, submerge ourselves in the ministry and in the works of His Kingdom but most of us miss the whole point.
Many of us forgot that the real reason why we do the work of the Kingdom is because of Jesus Christ. We often go on preaching to other people without seeking first the Kingdom of God, without putting God first.
“We live our life trying to get it all right and the whole time we can be all wrong,” Michael said. “Because our hearts aren’t broken anymore, we don’t want Him anymore. And we’re preaching other people’s stuff and stuff we’ve preached before because we don’t sit with them and let them break us open so that we can look inside the heart of God.”
Fulfill your soul
Our ministries and missions can’t fulfill our soul, only Jesus can fulfill our soul and fill the void within us. The Kingdom of God is not about our striving and works, it is about our hearts being in love with Him. It is about our soul longing for Him constantly.
“This is what I want, I want more of Jesus so bad. I want Him,” he emphasized. “I’m not striving, this isn’t law and works, if you don’t want Him, you’re dying inside. None of this stuff fulfills our soul… this stuff doesn’t make you happy.”
Seek first the Kingdom of God, seek first the love of Jesus Christ before going out to the world. You need Jesus in your life more than anything else, no one else can fill the void in your heart. Only Jesus can satisfy your soul.
“You won’t be a Jesus people unless you’re with Him, you got to be with Him. You can’t love Him and not be with Him, He’s got to be everything, He has to be everything to you.”
