TOPIC: Be the Epistle for All (2)
MEMORY VERSE: – “Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously.” 1 Peter 2:23
What you do for all to see has a greater impression than your words.
I decree that God will make you His positive announcer in all you do from today, in the name of Jesus.
PRAISE AND WORSHIP: Take praise and worship songs as led by the Holy Spirit.
BIBLE IN A YEAR: Deuteronomy 4:15-49, 5; Luke 11:5-32; Proverbs 8:32-36
1 Peter 2:21-25
There is a story that the Bible tells us about three wonderful young men who stood by what they believed. They acted it out and even the king of the nation where they were taken captive was so impressed that he ordered that everybody should serve only the God of these young men.
The king set up an image and asked all the people and his officials to bow down to it, but three young men refused. They said they served the jealous God and that you cannot have any other god or bow down to any idol except to Him alone. In anger, the king asked them to be put inside a burning furnace.
Dear reader of this devotional, God was waiting in the fire for them; and when they landed there, it became an air-conditioned atmosphere and they were moving around in the fire. Beloved, this got the king to be converted and he enacted a decree that every person and nation must serve the living God, the God of the Hebrew children (Daniel 3:29).
In our Fire Scriptures, the Bible says that Jesus Christ is the highest example of one who suffered evil for doing good. For those who follow His example, their sufferings are actually transformed into opportunities to identify with their Saviour. They recognise that the highest honour and privilege of any believer is to suffer for the cause of Christ and the spread of His message.
Beloved, to be a true epistle of Christ, you must demonstrate Christ’s unfeigned and unconditional love for others. You must forgive others as Christ forgave you. Your words and actions must edify others. You must also be willing to bear the burden of others at all times. In other words, people must see Jesus in you. There are things you must ignore. There are also things you must not say, so that you can win people to Christ through your ways of life as the epistle that they are reading. You must live in such a way that your observers will have no reason to doubt your words.
I pray that the Lord will give you the grace to be a life-changing and impactful epistle that all will read and follow Christ, in the name of Jesus.
1. I plead the blood of Jesus over my life, in the name of Jesus.
2. O God, show Yourself mightily in the affairs of my life, in the name of Jesus.
3. O Lord, let Your righteousness reign in every area of my life, in the name of Jesus.
4. O Lord my Father, break and remould me and refresh my vessels, in the name of Jesus.
5. I break the power and the grip of darkness over my life, in the name of Jesus.
6. I bind all negative forces working against my life as a true follower of Christ, in the name of Jesus.
7. O Lord, let Your wisdom and Your Spirit rest upon me, in the name of Jesus.
