TOPIC: Be A Good Model To Others(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries, MFM Daily Devotional 3 March 2019)
Bible In One Year: Numbers 26-28; Mark 8
FIRE SCRIPTURE: 1 Thessalonians 1:5-10
MEMORY VERSE: “Let no man despise thy youth; but be thou an example of the believers, in word, in conversation, in charity, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” – 1 Timothy 4:12
A model is a shining example, a good reference point and a showpiece. In this corrupt society, as a Christian, you can be a good model to your peers, groups, associates, friends, family members, etc. Timothy, Joseph, Samuel, Isaac, Daniel, Esther, Ruth, Lydia, Mary the mother of Jesus, etc., were good models as young men and ladies in their own generations. In character, behaviour and attitude, each of the aforementioned youths positively impacted their generations.
As a Christian, you can distinguish yourself from this perverse world. Joseph refused to yield to the temptation of sexual sin proposed by his master’s wife. Daniel determined not to defile himself with the king’s food. Isaac submitted himself to his father, Abraham when he wanted to offer him as a sacrifice to God. Ruth manifested deep love for Naomi, her mother in-law. Esther, as an orphan, respected and honoured her uncle, Mordecai in all things, even when she became a queen. Timothy received the word of faith from his grandmother and his mother and became a reputable Christian ambassador.
Beloved, you have been called to be salt and light to your generation. Let others see Christ’s glory and character in you and decide to serve your God. Remember that God’s verdict concerning your new status in Christ qualifies you to be a good role model to others. 1 Peter 2:9 affirms that you are a chosen generation, royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people, that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light. The same God who bestowed grace upon Joseph, Daniel, Esther, Ruth and Timothy will give you the grace to be His ambassador and model others in your generation, in Jesus’ name.
FAITH WITHOUT WORKS IS DEAD. PUT YOUR FAITH INTO ACTION TODAY AND BE TRANSFORMED BY THE POWER OF GOD.
Let the Spirit of truth empower you to live in God’s divine plan for your life.
Seed of greatness in me, germinate by fire, in the name of Jesus.
Strengthen me, O Lord and make me a light to my generation, in the name of Jesus.
My Father and my God, showcase me to the whole world, in the name of Jesus.
I refuse to come to this world in vain, in the name of Jesus.
My divine destiny, manifest by fire, in the name of Jesus.
Darkness will not overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus.
By fire by force, I shall fulfill the purpose of my birth, in the name of Jesus.
