Word for Today:
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity” (1Tim 4:12).
A true Christian life is a life of integrity and example for others to emulate. Meekness and humility are vital for us to be guided in the right direction. The Word says:
“The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way” (Psalm 25:9). Humility is the basis for our exaltation. The scripture says, Jesus was exalted on account of his humility, and given a name above every other name, that when the name JESUS is appropriately used, every knee, power, force, authority etc, whether in heaven, on earth, underneath the end, should bow to the glory of his holy name (Phil 2: 9-10).
The bible says Christ in you is your hope of glory (Col 1:27). To what extent can others see Christ in you? The Word says as true believers, we are the epistle that people should read: “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men” (2Cor 3:2). Epistle of Christ, written not in ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of theheart (2Cor 3:2).
Our memory verse above says we should be an example to others in: WORD, CONVERSATION, CHARITY, SPIRIT, FAITH, & PURITY. I pray that God gives us increasing understanding in this area. Going into details of each of these words would have been edifying but is beyond the scope of this message. However, in my spirituality journey thus far, I have discovered that out of ignorance, many Christians significantly limit their progress in life through their thoughts and words, ignoring what the Scripture says: For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned (Matt 12:37).
The book of proverbs says: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Prov 18:21).
The word of God is the Word of Life (1John1:1). When you wake up every morning by the grace of God, speak the living word of God to your life and the lives of others, for example: Greater is he in me than the one in the world(1John 4:4); Christ in me is my hope of glory (Col 1:27); resist the devil, and he will flee from you (Jam 4:7); ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me”(Phil 4:13) etc. If you do this every morning, and you are in Right Standing with God in Christ, you are sending a serious warning to the devil and his cohorts that you are untouchable.
Be mindful of your thoughts!
Be mindful of your words!
Be mindful of your actions!
Be an example for others to follow!
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to live exemplary life, in Jesus mighty name. Amen!
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
