How To Enlarge Your Territories

A long time ago, I was taught that a person who thinks big has a big ego. And a person who thinks small is a holy person.

Especially in religious circles, big thinking is criticized and small thinking is praised. Because all desire for expansion is a sign of pride.

And when a person says, “I want to be promoted in my job,” or “I want to earn more,” or “I want to expand my business,” some religious people will tell you, “Be happy with where you are. Be content with what you have.”

But today, I’ve realized that small thinking may mean small love. Some people think small not because they’re content, but because they’re cowards.

As little children, we were told, “Don’t stand out. Don’t rock the boat. Don’t create waves. Don’t call attention to yourself.”

But now I tell you: Stand out. Rock the boat. Create waves. Be the best that you can be. Fulfill your destiny. Don’t put your light under a bowl, but put yourself on the lampstand. (Matthew 5:17)  And shine God’s light within you!

My main message? Think big, love big.

Think Big

Once upon a time, the Israelites were conquered by the Babylonians and Assyrians. They were captured, chained, and hauled off like animals to another country to become their slaves. 

One day, after many years in captivity, they returned to their land. But the Israelites were a people with a broken spirit. They were a defeated people coming with a defeated mentality.  They felt small. They were thinking small. They were in survival mode. 

But God told them, “Enlarge your territories.”

He said, Enlarge the place of your tent, stretch your tent curtains wide, do not hold back; lengthen your cords, strengthen your stakes. For you will spread out to the right and to the left… (Isaiah 54:2-3)

The Israelites were a conquered people with a conquered spirit. Yet God says, “It’s time to conquer. You’re not conquered, you’re a conqueror.”

God wanted them to make a switch: From small thinking to big thinking.

Friend, you may be like the Israelites. 

Perhaps you’ve been defeated by your problems. Recently, you’ve been hammered by trials. And you have a defeated spirit. You see yourself as a small person. And you feel small. And you’ve been thinking small in your job, or in your business, or in your family life, or in your ministry. 

God is telling you now, “Don’t think small. Don’t think survival. Instead, think big. Think growth. Think expansion. Enlarge your territories. Because I want you to use you to bless the world.”

Be like Jabez. He prayed a unique prayer…

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, “Oh, that you would bless me and enlarge my territory…” (1 Chronicles 4:10)

When I read that verse, I think of my friends Rolly and Donna España.

Love Big

Rolly and Donna are fantastic business people. 

God blessed their businesses so much, they were able to build a gigantic house in Laguna. 

Let me give you an idea of how big their house is: It has an elevator. (But I was mildly disappointed it had no ATM machine.)

From the surface, it’s totally illogical why they have such a humongous house. Because Rolly and Donna don’t have kids.

But here’s the logic: When this couple hears about one of our ministry teams planning to have a retreat, or a seminar, or a workshop—Rolly would raise his hand and say, “Please use my house.”

If the retreat is 3 days long, Rolly and Donna would be there for the entire 3 days, to cook for them, serve them, and meet all their needs. They haven’t only opened their home, they’ve opened their hearts.

They have no biological children. But they have many spiritual children.

Here’s my point: They enlarged their territories for others.

       Claim these words from Daniel. But those who know their God shall be strong and do great and mighty exploits. (Daniel 11:32)

“Lord, Disturb Me!”

Let me tell you the story of how God expanded the territories of my spiritual family, Light of Jesus.

Once upon a time, we were tiny.

For 25 years, Light of Jesus was an inwardly-focused Covenant Community. We were a small bunch of people who met each week in closed-door, “for insiders only” prayer meetings.

Here was our goal then: We wanted to form spiritual giants. We had very strict norms—one hour of daily prayer, one hour daily Bible reading, one-hour daily levitation… (Just kidding.) We discouraged secular music, secular dancing, and secular movies. We believed that smoking was such a grave sin, it prepared people for the smokes of Hell. We banned drinking of all alcohol.

And we tried to manage people’s personal lives. Our members couldn’t make personal decisions without consulting their small group leaders for guidance. Anyone who doesn’t do that is deemed rebellious.

We were very big on commitment. If you couldn’t attend a minimum number of meetings, you’re booted out. (In our immaturity, rules were more important than people.) 

No wonder we weren’t growing.

But there was a glimmer of hope…

Each month, we had a meeting for “outsiders” which we called the Feast. That was where we could invite family, officemates, and friends. But it was only a once a month gathering.

Here’s what we noticed: Our monthly Feast was incredibly life giving! People loved it. People went home with a big smile on their faces. They couldn’t get enough of it. 

But our weekly closed-door meetings were as enjoyable as chewing wood. People were dragging their feet to go to these “for insiders only” meetings. That was why we had to threaten people to come, or else… We had to tell them, “If you don’t attend consistently, you’re no longer a member of Light of Jesus.”

That was why we had to check attendance. To force people to come. Here’s what I learned: When you force people to attend meetings, there’s nothing wrong with the people. There’s something wrong with your meetings.

But for years, that was who we were.

And we became very comfortable with our set-up. So comfortable, we didn’t want to change anything.

But one day, God disturbed us…

He Said, “Expand Your Territories!”

Because He wanted us to expand. 

But to expand our territories, God had to first expand our thinking.

First, God overhauled our identity. Not just our activity. I’ve learned that if you really want to expand, you’ve got to overhaul your identity.

From being a Covenant Community for managing “insiders”, He wanted us to become a Spiritual Family that’s focused on welcoming “outsiders”. He didn’t want us to form an elite team of spiritual giants. He wanted us to create a loving home whose front door was always open for the unchurched, for sinners, for the spiritually sick, for those far away from God. 

From being focused on maintaining house rules for insiders, God wanted us to focus on loving outsiders.

When God overhauled our identity, changing our activities was easier.  For example, we made the Feast weekly. And we moved from one Feast to many Feasts, from one preacher to many preachers.

Changing is always uncomfortable. 

Inwardly, we ask ourselves, “Why disturb what was working?”

There’s really only one thing that prevents us from expanding our territories: Its Fear.

Fear is the biggest thief in the house. It has been stealing your dreams away.

Let me share two common fears…

1. Fear of Discomfort

We live in a culture that worships the god of convenience.

In our culture, convenience is the most important thing.

Don’t get me wrong. Convenience is a gift from God. Thank God for convenience. 

Once upon a time, it took 6 months to go to America. Now, it takes 10 hours.

Once upon a time, we wrote handwritten letters—and it took a few days, sometimes weeks, for our letters to reach our friends. (Prehistoric days.) Now, we can facebook them in a snap of a finger.

Once upon a time, you had to call up people via a landline phone. If you’re my age, you remember the rotary phone that took forever to dial. “Zip, Rrrrrrrr….”   And if you’re my age, you also recall that you also had a “partyline” (usually your neighbor). If she’s using the phone, you can’t use it.

Oh, thank God for convenience. Thank God for cellphones. Thank God for digital cameras.  Thank God for google. Thank God for Ipads. Thank God for 24-hour pizza delivery.

But here’s the problem: The moment convenience becomes the most important thing in your life, that’s the moment you stop growing. That’s the moment you stop expanding.

Life begins to atrophy. Decay. Disintegrate.

Here’s the truth: Expansion and growth and development can only happen if you do the very opposite of convenience—which is sacrifice.

       Remember my story above? Transforming Light of Jesus caused us pain. 

When we made the Feast a weekly instead of monthly, it caused us pain.

Every time we moved venue, it caused us pain.

Every time we built other Feasts, it caused us pain.

But the pain was good.

Today, we have Feasts in 16 locations in Metro Manila, plus a few more Feasts all over the country and the world. Our PICC Feast (Philippine International Convention Center) alone gathers 5000 people every Sunday.

Convenience is nice.   Enjoy it if its there. But throw it out of the window when your big dreams are at stake.

Sacrifice!

Success Requires Sacrifice

Are you married? If you want your marriage to work—you’ve got to sacrifice. Many marriages aren’t working now because the husband and wife just want convenience more than anything else.

A marriage cannot be based on convenience.

Raising kids cannot be based on convenience.

Having a great career cannot be based on convenience.

Building a business cannot be based on convenience.

Growing your investments cannot be based on convenience.

A healthy body cannot be based on convenience.

Expanding your territories can only be based on sacrifice.

Here’s another common fear that prevents you from expanding your territories…

2. Fear of Failure

Let me tell you a story.

Julio was a new salesman. Despite of the fact that he would go house to house every single day, he couldn’t make one sale. 

So his sales manager called him and asked him, “Why can’t you sell?”

Julio said, “I don’t know why. Bad luck, I guess. I stand in front of the door waiting for someone to answer, but no one opens the door. So I go to the next house.”

After a few more questions, the sales manager discovers the reason: Julio would go house to house, standing in front of the front door, but he would never knock. He would just wait for it to open.

Why? He was afraid. He was afraid of failure. He was afraid of rejection.

Are you like Julio? Do you also simply stand in front of the door of opportunity—and don’t even knock? Have you been passing up so many doors of expansion, because of a fear of failure?

Knock!

Do something. Try it out. Dive in. Wet your feet. Experiment. Fail a few times.

Please know: To think big, you don’t act big. In fact, I strongly recommend that you act small. Because I assure you that in the beginning you’ll be failing first. So act small so that your failures are small.

There are two kinds of big thinking.

1. Big thinking that comes from big ego.

2. Big thinking that comes from big love.

Let me tell you the difference.

One Thing To Check

 

       Do you want to know if big thinking comes from big ego? From pride? From insecurity? From a need to prove yourself to others? From a need to buy other people’s love? From a need to cover up one’s unworthiness and inadequacy?

Look for one sign. Look for the presence of hurry.

If there’s hurry, there’s a 75% change that big thinking came from big ego.

For example, you’ll think big and act big right away.  Because you’re in a hurry.

But if big thinking comes from big love, you’ll think big and act small at the start. Because you’re not in a hurry. Because whatever you’re doing is not about you anyway. It’s about serving others and blessing the world.

If it’s big ego, you’ll think big and grow fast. If it comes from big love, you’ll think big and grow naturally. Not slow. Not fast. But naturally.

When Hurry Destroys You

       You can’t hurry a woman’s pregnancy. 

It’s 9 months or bust.

Not 6 months, 7 months, or 8 months.  If a baby comes out before the 9th month, it needs to be in an incubator. Its health is in danger.

Nor should the baby stay in the womb after 9 months. If the baby overstays in the womb, it’s dangerous to both the baby and the mother.

Do you know that some of the food that we eat is dangerous to our health? Why? Because we hurry the natural process of growth. 

For example, a native chicken takes 3 to 6 months for a baby chick to become an adult chicken. A regular chicken takes 45 days. But today, some only takes 28 days. How do they do it? They inject the chicken with massive doses of growth hormones—chemicals that throw our own hormonal system off balance. Some believe that these chemicals can cause cancers.

You’ll Lose Money If You’re In A Hurry

The reason why a lot of people fall for terrible scams is because they’re in a hurry to grow their money. This is also the reason why people gamble and lose all their money—because they’re in a hurry to grow their money. (This is the reason why I tell people to “invest” in the Stock Market, not “trade” in the Stock Market. Those are two very different things.)

In business, it’s the same thing. I’ve learned not to rush expanding my business. Instead, I just let it grow naturally. I avoid so many problems. And I avoid useless stress.

I’ve also learned that I don’t have to rush growing a ministry. Whenever I fall into the temptation of growing quickly, I get into catastrophic problems. 

Expand Your Territories—

Because It’s Not For You Anyway!

 

Here’s my little dream: I want to retire as over-all leader of Light of Jesus when I’m 55. That’s a mere 10 years from now. (I don’t believe a leader should stay too long in my position. The temptation is too great to use my fame and power for selfish ends.)

But I’ll never retire from serving you.

My exciting dream is to serve you without an official title for the rest of my life. When I’m 80, I hope I’m still visiting Feasts all over the world, encouraging people. 

I want to have only one title: Your Friend.

I can retire because my dream isn’t about me.

Light of Jesus isn’t about me.

It’s about you.

It’s about serving you, blessing you, and loving you.

So enlarge your territories. Be the best that you can be.   Grow. Flourish. Expand. Because it’s not for you anyway.

Think big, love big!

May your dreams come true,

Bo Sanchez

  1. As usual, another great article, Bro Bo. Like you I also have have a great desire to serve the Lord and expand my territories. Is there a community here in UK where I and my small prayer group can join? Why not start a Feast here. You’ll have my full support.
    Kindly email me how I could be of help. God less you and your family always.

  2. Hi Bro. Bo, thanks for sharing the message of sacrifice. Above evrything else, thanks for your friendship. You have a nice day. God bless you and your family!

  3. This article is filled with inspiring messages but these lines struck me the most:

    “Here’s what I learned: When you force people to attend meetings, there’s nothing wrong with the people. There’s something wrong with your meetings.”

    As someone who was once a member of a youth church organization, I could greatly attest to this. I’ve seen how gays, lesbians and bisexuals stopped attending meetings just a few weeks after joining the group. It’s because they didn’t feel welcome. The church organization imposes strict rules on how they should act, how they should dress, how they should talk, etc. It was as if, to be a member of the organization, they should have a personality overhaul first. But the truth is, they just wanted to be accepted the way they are.

    One thing I learned, those difficult people around us, those who irritate us, those who annoy us the most, those we hate…they are the ones who really need love. They became problematic people because in reality, they are the ones who are undergoing inner struggles.* They are the ones who are going through a lot of problems. They are the ones who underwent many rejections and hurts. And to deal with all of these, they developed unwanted behaviors, whether consciously or unconsciously. So we better not judge them, but love them, because we wouldn’t want to be in their place. It is only when these people experience acceptance and love that they become receptive to changing their ways.

    * P.S. Most of the gays I know confessed that they were sexually molested as a child.

  4. thank you, once again Bo, you’ve opened another door of learning for me, you did this every time you send out these soulfood to me…you are a blessing!

  16. Dear Bo,
    I am very inspired in your today’s soulfood. Somehow I realized the reason/s why some of my brothers and sisters are very lazy and bore to attend our weekly small group prayer meetings. Maybe we have to adopt creative formats that can be very exciting every week and we can also expand and not to confine ourselves for the members who finished our CLSS but instead we need to invite more even they are not yet having their so called entry-seminar. Thank you for these advises and tips. You are really a God-sent friend.. God bless us all…

  17. Hi Bro Bo,

    You’re truly an inspiration. Just what I needed. I hope I can get back to you one of these days, carrying an inspirational message I’ve learned from all your preaching.

  18. All your words & blog Bro. Sanchez are my spiritual antidotes. Thank you for sharing to us your God’s given wisdom. May you touch more lives & continue be an inspiration to many people who specially those who needs spiritual transformation. God bless you more.

  19. Hi Bro Bo,

  30. Dear Bo,

    Although you’re blog post inspired me and made me reflect as usual, this message is more to ask for counselling.

    I have big dreams for my family (we are a family of 5, including 3 small children). Each time it starts to look like things are going as planned, something happens that either delays us or completely derails us. I’ve wondered many times whether God was telling me that I have the wrong dreams. And then I start to worry.

    With your post, I realized that I worry because I am in a hurry, which means i’m thinking big out of big pride/insecurity. I realize that there shouldn’t be any reason to worry/hurry because God provides for us all the time, at the right time, anyway. But most of all, I realized that I am thinking big FOR ME, not for others.

    I ask you now, BO, (and all those of you who read Bo’s articles), to enlighten me as to how to incorporate service for others into my big dreams? How do I make my big dreams be about others? Or should I just give up my dreams of a comfortable life for my family?

    I know you’re perpetually busy, Bo. But please counsel me. Thank you.

  31. MOre Power..Godbless you always..and continue serving people….Thank you very much…

  32. Very inspiring indeed. It all starts with thinking big and coupled with a big love. Unstoppable!

  33. thanks alot Bo for Ur article:) it makes me to drink coffee for me to think deeply on what to do w/ my life to improve and to share to my love ones:) Godbless U always and Ur family:)

  34. Thanks for the inspiring words,it guides my daily life survival in this world.thank God for giving us Bro. Bo as one of the
    instrument of giving your food for our soul and Body.

  35. it very inspiring for us who are in the basic christian community here in the middle east, God bless you bro. Bo

  36. Thank you Bro. Bo for another inspiring article! God bless you more in your ministry! You are God sent! God bless your family always!

    love&prayers,
    Hutch :-)

  37. Bro Bo,

    Very inspiring indeed and is an eyeopener. . .gone is the “Small is Beautiful” in Economics. . .thanks a lot!

  38. thanks Bro Bo!
    May we all think BIG and act naturally for others!

    blessings for everyone!

  39. thanks Bro Bo!
    May we all think BIG and act for others!

  40. thanks Bro. Bo! These words have awakened me “Stand out. Rock the boat. Create waves. Be the best that you can be. Fulfill your destiny. Don’t put your light under a bowl, but put yourself on the lampstand. (Matthew 5:17) And shine God’s light within you!” I used to think small, but not anymore!

  41. It feels like you’re telling this words straight into my face and I need to be guided. I have always been thinking small in my job, my starting business, or in family life.

    I already have realized some of these things but the process of changing my mindset is quite difficult because I’ve been living this way for several years. I just don’t know how…

    May God continue to bless you and your family and may you continue to be a blessing to others! Thank you so much.

  42. Love this so much!!
    Thanks Brother Bo.. May God bless you always… ^_^

  43. Our community was like that before…
    Yes, it’s true… the “pulis”things of a community did harm than good, personally, I back slided, “boxed”… it was so hard and so painful..
    but I praise and thank God for being so victorious, merciful, forgiving and loving….
    Despite I am carrying the consequences of my mistakes related to being “policed”then instead of just being guided, I was given the chance to live my life as “normally”and happily as possible because of His goodness and grace.
    Siguro nga, all is well that ends well. Nevertheless, His victory and love has kept me in His flock kahit nawala din ako nang matagal-tagal. I just consider these experiences as lessons of love and compassion. God is good, all the time!

  44. Hi, Bo! Thanks for answering the ‘big’ question that has been bugging me these last few days! I prayed to God to give me an answer, I think that was yesterday, or at least to give me a ’sign’ if I will accept a position that is being offered to me. And your article hit the ‘bullseye’! The only problem left is if they will accept me even if I can only work for them in a part-time basis because I also need to earn for my family. I hope God will work a miracle to let me keep my old job and start with this new one as this will be a good opportunity for me to help our less-privileged countrymen. Thanks, Bo!

  45. Dear Bo,
    Thank u for another inspiring story.
