Matthew 19:12(KJV); For there are some eunuchs, which were so born from their mother’s womb: and there are some eunuchs, which were made eunuchs of men: and there be eunuchs, which have made themselves eunuchs for the kingdom of heaven’s sake. He that is able to receive it, let him receive it.
The making of men is three-pronged.
There are those who are made by God because the graces that operate in their lives are natural and innate. Sometimes these are called gifted men.
Then there are those who are made by men because they lived by the principles of association, assimilation and impartation. Such men are sometimes called students, disciples or followers.
The third category are those who make themselves through consecration and self-education. These are sometimes called self-made men.
However, despite the three prongs, as a child of God, you must both understand and respect the order of the Spirit. The order does not begin with self-made men or with students and disciples. This is deliberate and is meant to serve as an instruction to the body of Christ.
Every quest for greatness begins with God: with His seed in us; His abilities in our spirits and His grace labouring in us.
Greatness pursued without this understanding will always be limited because God and what He has placed in the inside of us is the primary standard of how big you can dream.
His name be praised!
