Red Tape - Holiness - Kingdom Growth

“As a nation we’ve got a national economy that is under enormous pressure at the moment from the effects of the global recession. Productivity is the key to long-term sustainable growth. This makes the wider task of deregulation even more important now. Good regulation is also central to what I’d call social productivity.” - Lindsay Tanner, in relation to the Australian Government removing the red tape from non-profit organisations. I'm sure this helps out the Salvo PR Department!
Holiness is a choice. You choose to be holy. Will I do this, or will I not? Will I look at that, or will I not? Will I say that, or will I not? Will I join that ministry I feel God is leading me to, or will I not? Will I talk to that person, or will I not? Holiness is a choice. Choose to be holy.
God's Kingdom grows. That's what in essence it should do. The offshoot of this, is that our churches grow, our Salvation Army soldiership rolls increase, our Youth Ministries expand, our Mainly Music programs have people turning to Jesus, our senior ministries see growth.
Check it out: 'What shall we say the kingdom of God is like...? It is like a mustard seed, which is the smallest seed you plant in the ground. Yet when planted, it grows and becomes the largest of all garden plants...' (Matthew 4:30-32).
