TEXT: LUKE 1:74-75
74) That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies might serve him without fear,
75) In holiness and righteousness before him, all the days of our life.
KEY VERSE: 1 THESSALONIANS 2:10
Ye are witnesses, and God also, how holily and justly and unblameably we behaved ourselves among you that believe.
When pastors lack understanding of righteousness and holiness, they cannot preach it. Consequently, members of their churches are not aware of it. The churches congregate in large assembly without the understanding of righteousness and holiness. They do not preach the truth but engage the people in entertainments and other activities that are not spiritual. The crusades they organize are not for righteousness and holiness, but for other matters. Indeed, righteousness and holiness have disappeared from the hearts of people. The Lord is calling on people, reviving and bringing them back to the point where they will serve Him in righteousness and holiness.
According to the vision of God, RIGHTEOUSNESS IS POSSIBLE. If it is not possible, the Lord would not have asked us to practice it. God is not a task master. If holiness is not possible, the Lord would not have required us to be holy. Holiness and righteousness is possible but requires a willing heart to make it work. If you are willing, you shall live the life of righteousness and if you are ready and prepared, you will live the life of holiness. Righteousness and holiness shall come down upon your life; your heart and thoughts shall be purified. You shall overcome all sins that have enslaved you. This is the desire of God for you.
God is looking out for workers and ministers that will serve Him in righteousness and holiness. Many ministers do not believe the possibility of being holy and righteous. They claim it is not possible to be holy and they teach their members the same thing. They communicate this to the workers under them and run their ministry without the vision of righteousness and holiness. The Bible says that where there is no vision, the people perish. Where there is no vision of holiness, you cannot attain it.
We are raising the vision of holiness and righteousness high for all to see and strive for it. As a teacher, you cannot teach others holiness while you are polluted. You tell lies because you are a liar. You cannot teach others not to commit immorality when you are committing it. As an evangelist that goes from place to place preaching the gospel, God demands that you preach the gospel of righteousness and holiness and that your life should reflect what you preach. Be therefore example to the people you preach to.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Righteousness and holiness are the evidence of true Christianity.
SONG FOR THE DAY: Open my eyes oh Lord…
BIBLE READING FOR THE DAY: Psalm 59-61; Acts 28:16-31
