MESSAGE:

A renowned wise man in a community was once confronted by an inquisitive boy who was out to test the depth of the wise man’s wisdom. The boy was holding a live butterfly and wanted wise man to tell him it’s state; dead or alive. Reasoning that the boy could mischievously squeeze the butterfly to death irrespective of his answer, the man simply responded, “It is in your hand.” The curious boy was so astonished and overwhelmed by the wise man’s impeccable answer that he nodded in affirmation of his exceptional wisdom.

In furtherance of His good works, Jesus Christ performed a landmark miracle of delivering a mute demon-possessed man. However, rather than glorifying God and appreciating His power, the people at the scene resorted to character assassination. They maligned the anointing of God in Him by their unwholesome and provoking remarks that “He casteth out devils through Beelzebub the chief of the devils”. Instead of joining issues with them, Christ simply referred them to their own children who performed such miracles too.

Quite instructive are these wise responses of Christ to the statements or provocation and praises of men. It underscores the imperativeness of the believer’s need of the Spirit-inspired speech. In our pursuit of God’s assignments, we might be misunderstood, abused or castigated by individuals or groups. Some people might even engage us in a mischievous dialogue with a view of provoking us and defiling our priesthood. At such crucial moments, the believer needs an immediate presence of power of the Holy Spirit for a tongue of the learned that produces wise responses such as demonstrated by Christ.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY Wise response is a key to ministerial success.

HYMN

WITH SIGNS FOLLOWING

1. When first the risen Lord of pow’r
His chosen ones sent forth,
A charge He gave, that solemn hour,
To preach His saving worth.
“Go ye,” said He, “to all mankind;
Declare My Word, and ye shall find:
These signs shall surely follow them
Who on My Name believe.”

2. “No demons shall before them stand, No poison do them harm;
Nor subtle serpent in their hand
Cause pain or dread alarm.”
For Satan’s kingdom He o’ercame,
To give His people right to claim:
“These signs shall surely follow them
Who on My Name believe.”

3. “They shall with other tongues declare
The wonders of their God:
The sick beneath their hands, by prayer,
Shall rise to prove My Word,”
So let it be! Firm as His Throne
Stands this clear promise to His own:
“These signs shall surely follow them
Who on My Name believe.”

4. Crowned with the flame of Pentecost,
A faithful, fearless band
Proclaimed His Name: a ransomed host
Arose from every land.
The Lord worked with them from on High,
His proven Word could none deny:
“These signs shall surely follow them
Who on My Name believe.”

5. No word of Thine is void of power;
No promise, Lord, is vain.
Be this a Pentecostal hour –
Confirm Thy Word again!
Nor can’st Thou fail! Thou art the same
As when of old Thou did’st proclaim:
“These signs shall surely follow them who on my name believe”
