EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING
BY: PASTOR PAUL RIKA, INTERNATIONAL DIRECTOR
Holiness Revival Movement Worldwide (HOREMOW)
FRIDAY APRIL 7, 2023
TEXT: HEBREWS 3:1-2
Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
Key Verse: 1 Peter 5:3 “Neither as lords over the God's heritage but being ensamples to the flock”.
Christianity is a heavenly calling. If you are appointed as a leader to lead God's people to heaven, then it is a great calling, especially in Holiness Revival Movement Jesus keeps referring to as His own.
If you understand that you are appointed by Divine God to lead holy brethren, see your appointment as the greatest calling in the world. Let your eyes focus on Jesus who appointed you and not on man. Jesus was appointed and was faithful to Him who appointed Him and at the end He was crown and glorified.
If you are brought in as a sinner or with a fault, amend your ways. How should you live your life?
Walk worthy of your calling. As a leader, God wants you to willingly feed His flock, not by constraint, not for filthy lucre but of a ready. If you don't know this, it means honour is becoming for a fool. Prove it, be humble. You must not be soon angry; forbear one another: learn to bear mistake of one another; work in unity: remember that your appointment is not by certificate but by your life. Did the leadership ask you for a certificate when you were being appointed? Therefore, live worthy of your calling else your work has ended. You can't do this work with sins in your life.
Husband and wife, cooperate with each other; wife submit to your husband irrespective of your status. Let the people know that you submit to your husband as a coordinator's wife. Husband, don't maltreat your wife, don't shut up her mouth, let people see it. Ensure effective prayer in your family, it will keep you in holiness. Don't hide sin. If you notice sin, report it or else you have failed. Be obedient to all rules and be ready to suffer. Where the need arises over hard situation, cry out to God and He will give you solution; Issues of witchcraft will be fought to stand still, we are in a battle to salvage our souls; Avoid idolatry for power; Let the love of Jesus Christ supersedes everything: your wife, husband, children and any earthly thing; and live by faith in the living God.
Thought for the day:
Live worthy of your calling to end up in heaven.
Song for the day:
We have come to Thee, O Lord (3x) that it might be well…
Bible reading for the day:
