It is incredibly
ironic divine that God has called me to launch a ministry with a number in the title. Why? Because while some might say I have a knack for writing, math is not my strong suit. (This is how I know God has a sense of humor.)
However, this page is not about math… but rather an answer to His call.
The number “7″ has great symbolic meaning in the Bible. (See “Why 7 Days Time?” page by clicking here.) It represents forgiveness, perfection, completion, sanctification, fulfillment… But most of all, it represents God’s generous love and mercy, when He sent His Son to die on the cross. With Jesus’ last breath, he uttered “It is finished.” His earthly mission was complete. But we, as radical followers of Jesus, have only just begun. We are called to be a “Factor of 7.”
Factor of 7 is a way to multiply God’s love… and that love-multiplication comes in a variety of forms. My husband and I are letting the Lord lead us.. Some months He calls us to take $107 cash out of our account and show the love a stranger at the grocery store. Or maybe take the cash and bless customers at Starbucks. God is super creative .The possibilities are endless.
Won’t you join us? Pray for God to make YOU a Factor of 7. Maybe it will be in person or via an anonymous mailing. Maybe it’s a friend. Or a complete stranger. Are they a Christian or a non-believer? It doesn’t really matter… because you will impact them in more ways than you know. Allow the Holy Spirit to move you. Be a fearless factor to love. To give. To move. You WILL change a life. It will be worth it. I promise.
And be open-minded. It doesn’t have to be money. Start loving people right where you are with all you have. Ask the cashier how you can pray for them. Mow your neighbor’s yard without being asked. Make cookies for your garbage man. Heaven is the limit… literally.
It doesn’t matter if you are seven or 107. It’s never too late to start living for God.
I post our personal experiences month-by-month. I pray that if you feel so moved, you share your story as well. Not only how it changed person who received your “Factor of 7″ blessing, but also how that pure generous love of Jesus changed YOU.
Factor of 7: Planting a Few Seeds of Faith
Individually, you might not think you can accomplish much. Seven is a prime number, and alone it doesn’t seem to do a whole lot. However, when it multiplies… it becomes a factor. It matters. Remarkable things happen. People experience God’s love, angels sing, and God’s will is completed perfectly. (Check out the links above if you aren’t quite convinced…)
Jesus was a single person. But His influence was so great that it literally changed the world. He gave us a hope and future. It’s an incredible gift, so now let’s pay it forward. He was THE FACTOR, the prime number-one ruler… Let’s follow in His footsteps and live our lives for Him as a full-blown “Factor of 7.”
“Give away your life; you’ll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.” –Luke 6:38 (MSG)
