Word for Today: What are you ready to suffer for Christ?
Ministry of the Word (MOW): True Spirituality (TS)
“From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus” ( Galatians 6:17).
Aside from my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, my next best friend is Paul the apostle. It’s amazing how God arrested him, changed his name( from Saul of Tarsus to Paul the apostle), changed his character from being a persecutor of Christians to becoming the greatest apostle (Acts 9). Hear 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).
In contrast with the many men of God we have today, Paul considered his own life as nothing. What are you ready to suffer to defend your faith in Christ? Do you have any marks on your body that you stand for Christ? Paul was ready to die for the good news gospel; indeed he died a martyr for the sake of the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
He was never afraid of anyone. He was not afraid of challenges . Hear him:
“We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body” (2 Corinthians 4:8-10).
“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen” ( Philippians 4:23).
Have Spirit-filled Sunday.
Dear Father, your grace is all we need. Please make me fearless, bold and courageous in the battles of life in Jesus mighty name. Amen .
Blood of Jesus!
Thank you Father for your grace that is in our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. His grace is all we need .
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
