GOING THE EXTRA MILE

The Extra Mile is not Just pushing yourself more like the normal thought of it says. The Extra Mile is First, A Mandate. Meaning it is mandatory for the Believer. It is the true Life of the Believer.

What does it mean to Then Go the Extra Mile?
The Extra is An item in Addition to what is usual or what is Strictly Necessary.

It is a realm where Faint hearts do not tread because of

1. Negligence,
2. Inadequate knowledge, 3. Unpreparedness,
4. Intentional Unavailability
5. Unreadiness
6. Complacency

Paul said,
1 Corinthians 9:16 For though I preach the gospel, I have nothing to glory of: for necessity is laid upon me; yea, woe is unto me, if I preach not the gospel!

I like that phrase, “Necessity is Laid upon me”.
That is the secret to going the extra mile.

Understand that, It is a necessity for you to go the extra mile or else before Jesus, you are counted as Foolish in the realm of the Spirit.

There were 5 wise and 5 unwise(foolish) virgins Jesus spoke about.
Those who picked extra oil were counted wise because they decided to live in the Realm of the Extra.

It is a domain, a Realm, a dimension of Life to Live in the Extra.
And the Wisdom of the Extra life is Foolishness to the Fool

Proverbs 24:7 Wisdom is too high for a fool…

It is the Wisdom of God to live in the Realm of the Extra where you Do the Extra, Go the Extra, have Extra, in all things and for all things

It is Simply Put …. A MANDATE…. IT IS MANDATORY

Sit down today and ask yourself where can I Go the Extra for Jesus, for my life on Earth, For the Church of Christ, for The Kingdom of God, for my personal Christian life

and you will be Amazed that you haven’t even started yet because in that Realm all you see about what you have Done Is but JUNK and you press on Towards the Goal for a Victorious Crown. Philippians 3:14

The Extra Mile is a Mandate from Jesus. It is a Mandate of lavished Love where you lavishly give your all, your best and the Extra above your best.

Go the extra Mile because that is where everyone FAILS
and you stand out.

Go the Extra Mile in your Work, Your Marriage, Your Parenting, Your Position you occupy at work or Church.

Go the Extra Mile in the Spirit, in the Word of God, in Worship, in Praise, In Sacrifice of your Flesh, your tithes and Offerings.

Go the Extra Mile in your Waiting, the Extra Mile in your Preparation, in your Readiness, In your Availability, In your Love for God, Man and the Supernatural.
This wisdom is too high for a Fool
Proverbs 24:7 Wisdom is too high for a fool…

PAUL WAS A MAN OF THE EXTRA MILE and He knew it and always spoke about it. Paul made profound statements like,

Philippians 3:7-8
But whatever was gain to me I count as loss for the sake of Christ. 8*More than that,* I count all things as loss compared to the surpassing excellence of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whom I have lost all things. I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ

verse 8 Starts with … MORE THAN THAT

Where is your MORE THAN THAT? Jesus is asking you!
What Makes You Wise in the Realm of the Spirit and Qualifies you for the Next Realm of Glory is your MORE THAN THAT – AKA – EXTRA MILE – AKA – EXTRA OIL,

There are next Realms Faint And Foolish hearts can not enter because they are just too foolish to Enter

Now the Keys to The Extra Mile are:
1. The Life Of Sacrifice
2. The Life of Abandonment
3. The Life of Self Denial.

Please chew on this and Masticate it… Let’s meditate deeply on it because these messages are lost on the Body of Christ today.

Do you know what? Did you notice that in the story of the Bride Groom and 10 Virgins, the Groom Delayed?

That Groom…. was the Fault not those who had Just enough oil …
But those who had Just enough were counted as FOOLS, and those who had EXTRA OIL were counted as WISE!

This is serious… we better Get in Line … this Generation!

God bless you!
