Word for Today:
Nothing else is more important to me!
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ” (Philippians 3:7-8)
Everywhere you go , every situation you find yourself, there is always an opportunity to ‘showcase’ Jesus Christ. I am often amazed that many Christians are not comfortable with sharing Jesus with others, for what ever reasons. Many Christians are not promoting Jesus Christ in thoughts, words and conducts.
After Apostle Paul found Jesus through a dramatic circumstance on his way to Damascus in Acts Chapter 9, he considered everything else he had as lost. A woman of God was preaching the other day and she made a statement that has found a place in my heart. She said : many Christians are not truly married to Jesus; they are only merely befriending Him. She went on to say if you are truly in love with someone, you cannot help but be fun of that person. How can you be in love with Jesus, and you do not call Jesus so many times in 24 hours.
Many people have asked me how I deal with conflicts between my spiritual work and my psychiatric work. My response is usually that there is no conflict at all between true spirituality and medicine or science, which psychiatry is a part of. Nothing goes against the truth successfully. However, if one is religious about it, then there will be conflicts. Jesus Christ was the most spiritual and the least religious person while on earth. You can promote or showcase Jesus anywhere you are by promoting truth, peace, compassion, openness, transparency, honesty, sincerity, loyalty, diligence, humility and love etc. You can promote Him without verbally mentioning the name Jesus aloud. As we know, Jesus has many names. He is the Truth; He is the Prince of Peace; He is the Comforter; He is Light; He is Life; He is love etc. These names are there in the bible. So we can promote Jesus without being religious.
When Jesus revealed the Ministry Of the Word ( Acts 6:4), to me in 2008, I had no clarity with regard what exactly He wanted me to do nor how to go about it. But the vision is a lot clearer now to the glory of God the Father. Some people may not believe me when I say nothing else is more important to me in this life than sharing the word of Christ, doing the word of Christ and living the word of Christ.
I love my Jesus and Jesus loves me. No circumstances can change my decision.
The stating point is to totally obey Apostle Paul:
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord” (Col 3:16).
After Jesus Christ, Brother Paul is my next lover. Here is a man who was not with Jesus physically on earth, yet his intimacy with Jesus was extraordinary. No apostle who interacted with Jesus physically will deny that Paul surpassed all, and demonstrated an extraordinary, supernatural intimacy, passion and commitment to Jesus Christ. Here him:
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me” (Galatians 2:20)
“From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus” (Galatians 6:17).
“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Philippians 3:21)
Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
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).
Father, please give us the grace to truly fall in love with you and promote you every we go in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
