Speaking on the above, the Pastor of First Love Assembly took his scriptural reference from 2 Cor 7:1,Gal 5:16, Luke 9:62, Acts 9:4-7, Judges 13:8
Salvation is two ways. We are saved by God through grace and another part,work out your salvation with fear and trembling. Work out what has been offered to you free.
Every race must be run according to rules. Even if you're the fastest if you break any rule you will be disqualified.
1. Where are you? Are you where you are supposed to be? Pillars don't move.
2. What is your name? Who you are called is who you will manifest.
3. Have you received the Holy Spirit.
4. What do you see? What you see is what you become.
5: WHAT WILL YOU HAVE ME DO?
"Life begins the day you know what you are called to do and do it. Life is not a burden,it is a gift. If you do not ask, you will not know.
1. You must go on a soul search with the Lord. You must ask the Lord " What will You have me do Lord?" Acts 10:3-4. To fulfil destiny,you must do as commanded because the end is glory. John 21:15-22, 1 Pet 5:1-2. God will always respond to the call of self discovery.
2. Your purpose precedes your existence. What is the need for your existence? God planted you here for a reason. 1 Cor 12:12. There is a reason why you live.
3. Jer 1:5. Your ability determines what you should do. Matt 25:15. He has given you talents based on what He has equipped you to do. Know what your ability is. Know your strength.

2. Encounter Christ. Unusual visitations. John 16:13-16
3. The things you do with ease and peace are indicators of what you are called to.
4. The leading of the Spirit of God. Acts 16:7,10
5. Through service. When you serve you discover yourself. Acts 1:25, Acts 11:30. You grow in service. Service reveals you.
