Word for Today:
Jesus Used to Hide from Publicity.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“When Jesus therefore perceived that they would come and take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone” (John 6:15)
According to our memory verse, Jesus Christ used to shy away from earthly publicity when he was on earth. Crowd were drawn to him based on the powerful miracles they saw and the power of God being manifested through him. When Jesus perceived that the people want to ” take him by force, to make him a king, he departed again into a mountain himself alone” (John 6:15).
What do you find in our societies today, our ‘highly anointed men and women of God’ love to be announced/publicised. Those highly placed in our societies love to be given preferential treatment, yet they are ‘committed Christians ‘ who ‘go the church ‘ regularly. I was saddened by the report I read recently by the wife of a highly placed citizen in Lagos state, Nigeria, who attended a Sunday church service, expecting to be honoured and given publicity. When she did not get it, her pride was instantly wounded. She quickly liaised with her husband and the pastor was immediately sacked and directed to vacate his official residence within 24 hours. Thank God for the church members who we learnt protested and rallied round to provide the man of God /his family the basic things he needed. Usually, I do not focus my message on individuals but I was deeply touched. Luckily, our God is a righteous judge. May God help us in Jesus name. Amen.
To be a Christian is to be like Jesus Christ. Jesus said:
“And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted” (Matthew 23:12).
A Christian life is a life of humility.
Be humble! Emulate Jesus Christ!
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).
Dear Father, please give us the spirit of humility as we continue to praise you this season in the mighty name of Jesus . Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
