Sound Doctrine – Last week we shared a great newsletter with a doctrinal emphasis (The Harder I Try, The Worse It Gets). The more scripturally sound we are, the more likely we’ll have a favored relationship with Jesus and inherit our land. I do think positive thinking and believing in yourself helps. However, as Christians, we can be optimistic with a rational basis. God is working on our behalf; toward Kingdom goals that are bigger than ourselves.

This week I want to introduce a story from Paul Hunter of some African widows in Naminya, Uganda that started a business. Marketplace ministry is all about helping people connect with God so they can learn to receive for themselves. Here’s the story.

The points below are the “story” behind the story. How do we get to a place of prosperity and generosity? And, how do we help others get there.

The Message – We’ve outlined our vision around three simple steps; and summarized it in a brochure. The first step is the message of the gospel. It includes fulfilling your dreams and pursuing your heart’s desire. It’s fun to be a Christian. We don’t deny or ignore spiritual warfare or suffering. We deal with them and go on to the frosting. We understand that Jesus redemptive work isn’t just about going to Heaven. We’re building the Kingdom here and now!

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. 2 Cor 8:9 NIV

The Money – Many Christians are a little embarrassed about “making money.” Kings understand that converting money to ministry is how the Kingdom is built. Kings enjoy the process are candidates to hear the Holy Spirit opening doors toward prosperity. They understand money doesn’t fall out of Heaven… Prosperity is the result of sowing into business, investments, or vocations that will bring a return. Paul called it “hard work.”

In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'” Acts 20:35 NIV

The Mission (Giving) – Our goal is making disciples; more specifically Kings. It really is “blessed” to give. That’s why it’s nice to have money to give. We’re converting money into ministry.

One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.  25 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed. Prov 11:24-25 NIV

The Mission (Lending) – I’m coming to another realization. Giving won’t necessarily break poverty. In fact, giving alone, can create an unhealthy dependency; a welfare mentality. Lending can help kings get started and establish the discipline of financial responsibility. When they learn to be good stewards and multiply finances for themselves they are much more likely to become Kings and reproduce their own prosperity and break the cycle of poverty.

Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice. Ps 112:5  NIV

Business plans and cash flow assessments in excel can be the most spiritual tools we have to lift a brother or sister out of poverty. Here’s an example.

Life is an adventure. People are a blessing. God is amazing. We’re winning.

Opportunity! – I helped Jayston Tunnelle (a pastor from Liberia) write a business plan for a grocery store in Monrovia. We need someone with experience in retail / groceries to review it and we need an investor to make it a reality. The details of the business start-up and Jayston’s contact info are on the link.

You’re invited into the vision to release Kings; communicate the message, make the money, and do the mission.

1.The Message – Our first goal is to get the Releasing Kings message into the hands of the messengers that will carry it… do it, preach it, teach it, example it.
2.The Money – The second goal is to help Kings break out of poverty by networking them with practical opportunities to prosper. We want to introduce them to the right people, the right opportunity, and the right financial approach.
3.The Mission – Network Kings with opportunities to mix business and missions. Accomplish the great commission through the marketplace.
