EVERY WORD OF GOD FOR DAILY LIVING

SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 8
TEXT: Philippians 4:8-9
KEY VERSE: Philippians 3:17 Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
Brother, Sister, take the lead in righteousness in your environment. Take the lead in righteousness in your family. Take the lead in righteousness in your Church, in your office, in your school, everywhere! In a situation where you find yourself amidst different groups of people. If they are not interested in praying, studying the Scripture, or having a quiet time, or doing morning devotion, dissociate yourself from them.
If there is one pastor among them that would wake up and go on his knees to pray and after that, take his bible to read, other pastors will feel guilty and join him. That way, you would have influenced them to be close to God. You need to sustain this revival the Lord has given to us by your personal life. Are you a member of a committee? Shine your light in their midst.
Show seriousness and commitment when they call for a committee meeting. By the way, you behave and operate there; you will bring improvement to bear in the committee work, and God will be happy for it.
Christ has set His life as example for you to follow, hence demonstrate for your colleagues and others under you to behold and emulate. Take a stand, people will follow you. Very soon, you will find many churches
following the Holiness Movement.
Have they not even begun? I informed some people that in a short while, women that wear jewelry would be ashamed in society. They would want to look natural. I understand some women have even started. They are beginning to value naturalness to artificiality. They are not doing it for holiness but as a trending fashion. But many others are doing it for holiness. For whatever reason they are doing this, one thing sure is that when others see it, they will follow.
Take the lead in anything; others will follow. If there is a corrupt woman in the bank, in the office, in the school, or a woman that is corrupt in her dressing, once she takes the lead, others will follow. But I am imploring you to choose the lead in what is right, edifying, profitable, holy and righteous. Take the lead in what will take people to heaven, not what will cause them to fall and damn their souls to the eternal lake of fire.
Thought for the day:
Be a good example of what is true, righteous, and holy.
Song for the day:
God is searching for a man….
Bible reading for the day:
Leviticus 4-6; Matthew 25:1-30
