TEXT: 1 PETER 5: 1-6 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock.4And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.5Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
Key Verse: Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
(I). Faith: Faith says God calls you and will reward you. Do not allow any situation to distract you.
(II). Faithfulness: Do it according to pattern; according to Divine specification.
(III). Humility: Be humble so you can perform service unto God. If you see yourself as highly placed, you may be directing works to younger ministers under you to do while some of these works may be for you. Where other people are assigned responsibilities and you are left out, God must have chosen somebody at that time to do it, so be humble and listen.
(IV) Holiness: Cloth yourself with the garment of holiness as a believer.
(V) Sufferings: It is given to all believers not only to believe in Christ but to partake in His sufferings. There is reward if you suffered with Him.
(VI). Wisdom: is the principal thing. Seek it and seek understanding.
(VII). Love: should be the principle on which you work.
(VIII). Prayer: The effectual, fervent prayers of the righteous avails much.
(IX). Righteousness: Note that the little service rendered in righteousness is greater than great one without holiness.
(X). Divine pattern and Trust: If your service is done with patience in line with divine pattern, it gives sweet savour coming out of a pure heart.
Thought for the day:
Be humble and pure while rendering service unto God
Song for the day:
My lifetime, I will give God my lifetime
Bible reading for the day:
1 Kings 3-5; Luke 23:1-26
