MAINTAIN THE VIBE! (Declare And Maintain Your Passion For The Lord)
Tuesday, January 12th
TO THE BIBLE
Revelation 2:25 AMPC “Only hold fast to what you have until I come.”
Some Christians allow anger or bitterness to douse their zeal and effectiveness in ministering to others. Some go as far as withdrawing their services in God’s house simply because of some offence someone in church meted to them. They become less excited about the Gospel than when they first found the faith. But this is not God’s will for anybody. You should not stop winning souls or become cold about the things of God because someone offended you.
Hebrews 12:15 GNB says, “Guard against turning back from the grace of God. Let no one become like a bitter plant that grows up and causes many troubles with its poison.” In other words, consciously protect your heart from becoming bitter and consequently losing your excitement about the things of God. The privileges of service we have in the house of God are sacrosanct; don’t take them lightly. You’ve been endowed with the ability and grace to lead people to Christ, unveiling to them the mysteries of the Kingdom; keep at it. There’s a crown of glory awaiting you at the end.
As a Christian, every day presents opportunities for you to keep the faith and maintain your confession of who Jesus is and what He means to you. Nothing should take your focus off the Master; He’s all that truly matters. Declare your love for Him, and your passion for the Gospel.
The Bible says those that turn many to righteousness shall shine as stars forever (Daniel 12:3). Keep shining evermore in leading many to Christ. Let it be your life’s work and priority.
Hebrews 12:15 AMPC Exercise foresight and be on the watch to look [after one another], to see that no one falls back from and fails to secure God’s grace (His unmerited favor and spiritual blessing), in order that no root of resentment (rancor, bitterness, or hatred) shoots forth and causes trouble and bitter torment, and the many become contaminated and defiled by it–
Romans 12:11 not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in Him, and I’m helped and energised. I’m inspired to share the Word and lead others to Christ and bring many into salvation. Amen.
Daily Bible Reading
Matthew 9:18-38, Genesis 29-30
Acts 8:26-40, Esther 5-6
It’s time to let the bitterness go and get back to serving the Lord with excitement. Say this, “The love of God is shared abroad in my heart; therefore, I hold no record of any wrong done to me. I live free and happy in Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
