For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. – Ephesians 2:10
THE Greek translation of partnering means association and also fellowship, so for this subject the two might be use simultaneously and interchangeably. Partnership is an existence of relationship between two or more persons.
It is also a system by which God involves man, so that His will can be established on earth.
Please understand that it is not who you know that matters, it is whom you know because knowing someone is in levels which is determined by relationship. You can say for example you know your pastor who you see probably once or twice a week but his children will also say they know their father who is your pastor whom they see almost every day. You can’t compare your knowledge about your pastor to theirs.
Same thing with God, the knowledge of about him differs and this is as result of relationship.
How Does Partnering Work?
Note that partnership is anchor and functions on the platform of agreement and interest.
Can two walk together, except they be agreed? – Amos 3:3
God will never force any man to work with him, you have to yield yourself because the system of God is neither democracy nor authoritarian rather it is theocracy where God is considered first.
The second thing is that there is a need for building of relationship with Him. God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. I Corinthians 1:9. You can’t partners with someone you do not know.
Another thing you need to know is that partnership with God means you are ready to do His will and His top will is to seek His kingdom.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. – Matthew 6:33.
We are meant to be on the go for God. God won’t come down to preach the gospel, we are the ones that are saddled with the responsibility of doing so and if we refuse to do it, then we breach the contract of partnership.
Remember soul winning is the basic thing here and this is done majorly in two folds by reaching out to the lost and by interceding for them, this is our family’s business.
All your success in life should gear towards Kingdom fruitfulness that is what makes you a partner with God.
