REPRESENTING GOD? – Monday October 9th
2017
Memorise: 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. 1st Timothy 4:12
Read: 2nd
Thessalonians 3:1-8 (KJV)

3:1 Finally, brethren, pray for us, that
the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with
you:

3:2 And
that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all men have not
faith.


.

3:3 But
the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.
3:4 And
we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the
things which we command you.
3:5 And
the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting
for Christ.
3:6 Now
we command you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye
withdraw yourselves from every brother that walketh disorderly, and not after
the tradition which he received of us.
3:7 For
yourselves know how ye ought to follow us: for we behaved not ourselves
disorderly among you;
3:8 Neither
did we eat any man’s bread for nought; but wrought with labour and travail
night and day, that we might not be chargeable to any of you:
Bible in one year: 1st
Corinthians 10-11, Daniel 4:28-37, Hymn: Sing hymn 9
MESSAGE:
Who
are you? If you are a child of God, then you must behave like God and reflect
all that He represents. God is love. He is pure and there is not darkness in
Him. If you are a child of the devil, your life will be patterned after the devil.
I am a branch of Jesus because I am permanently rooted in Him. What about you?
As a child of the Most-High God, you are expected to demonstrate His nature
everywhere you find yourself. You are an ambassador of Jesus Christ, called to
show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into His
marvellous light (1st Peter 2:9). Open Heaven 9
October 2017: Monday daily devotional by Pastor E. A. Adeboye – Representing
God? To be a representative of God to the world and a role model among believers,
it is required of you to surrender yourself solely to Him. By so doing, you
will be laying a good foundation for others to emulate. In many churches today,
their modus operandi is “do as I say” and not “do as I do”. This was not the
example that the believers of old showed us. Apostle Paul in 1st
Corinthians 11:1
boldly said:

“Be ye followers of me, even as I also
am of Christ.”

He
saw himself as a worthy follower of Christ, and he was not ashamed to tell us
to follow his footsteps.

.
As an
ambassador of Christ, you have a mandate to fulfil for the Lord in this
generation. You have been positioned at such a time as this to be relevant in
the scheme of things. Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego stood out from the
crowd. They did not allow the privileges of royalty to deny them their place in
God. They were role models for the world to see, and they did great exploits
for God because they had an understanding of the times and season they lived
in. Do not engage in any despicable act that will cause men to despise your
God. Do not engage in folly and a questionable lifestyle that will destroy what
God has planned for you. The world must know that you are a believer, not just
in words but also through your deeds. Let your life be an epistle for people to
read. Do not do anything in secrecy that will tarnish your image, because the
devil is going round looking for great soldiers in God’s battalion to
discredit. The devil will never go after those who have nothing to offer. He is
after the “Esthers” because he wants to stop them before they get to the king’s
palace. He is after the “Daniels” because he wants to stop them from being
relevant in life and in governance. He is after the “Nehemiahs” because he
can’t stand them rebuilding the broken walls of godliness. To finish well, you
must be resolute and determined. Irrespective of the odds against you, you must
push through, break barriers and fulfil your destiny in grand style. Be a model
of Christ to all men in word, in conversation, in love, in hospitality and in
godliness.
Key Point
If you steadfastly take a
stand for God, you will not fall by the wayside of life.
