Ministry of the Word (MOW)
Improving our Spiritual Understanding
Theme: What can others Emulate from you?
“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. Humility and meekness 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 Word says, Jesus was exalted by the Father on account of his humility, and given a name above every other name, that when the name JESUS is appropriately mentioned, 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).
Beloved, to what extent can others see the glory of God in Christ Jesus in you? The bible says Christ in you is your hope of glory (Col 1:27). 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, ministered by us, written not with ink, but with the Spirit of the living God; not in tables of stone, but in fleshy tables of the heart” (2Cor 3:3).
Our memory verse above says we should be an example to others in: Word, Conversation, Charity, Spirit, Faith, and Purity. We pray that God gives us increasing daily understanding in this area. Going into details of each of these words would have been edifying but it’s better to keep the message as brief as possible.
In my spirituality journey thus far, I have discovered that out of ignorant, many Christians significantly limit their progress in life through their thoughts, words and actions, ignoring what the Scripture says:
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof” (Prov 18:21).
“For by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned
” (Matt 12:37).
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. Remember the word of God such as:
“Greater is he that is in you , than he that is in the world” (1John 4:4);
“Christ in you , the hope of glory (Col 1:27);
“Resist the devil, and he will flee from you ” (Jam 4:7);
“…All things work together for good to them that love God…” (Romans 8:28);
” I can do all things through Christ who strengtheneth me” (Phil 4:13) etc.
If you do these declaration 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.
The commandment we receive as true born again sons of God is to bless and curse not. Brother Paul captured this clearly in his letter to the Romans: “Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not” (Romans 12:14). We can not be children of God, yet we are thinking evil, speaking evil, acting evil, wishing others bad etc. Jesus says “Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaketh” (Matt 12:34). This is where spiritual understanding is important. We are to bless and curse not
Ignorance has kept many away from enjoying their birth right.
Sincerely spend quality time daily to meditate on the word of God, and you will begin to see the difference in your life. Be totally obedient to the word of God. Live your new name! Do not limit God working in you through your thoughts.
My daily prayer is that Christ is well formed in your heart (Gal 4:19). The kingdom of God is within you (Luk 17: 21).
Have a Spirit-filled week and for the rest of the year.
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). However, the first thing you must desire greatly is total spiritual freedom through the truth in the word of God ( John 8:32, 36).
Prayer: There is someone reading this message, receive the grace to be an example for others to emulate in Jesus mighty name. Amen
