EVERYTHING IS ALL ABOUT JESUS (2)

Spread the love

Main Scriptures: Col.3:11,17

More Scriptures: Eph.5:23, Heb.12:2, Rom.8:16

Where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcision nor uncircumcision, Barbarian, Scythian, bond nor free, BUT CHRIST IS ALL AND IN ALL. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, DO ALL IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him (Col.3:11, 16-17)

But how do I become all of Jesus to my wife and children and the world around me? By serving their interests the same way Jesus would. Jesus served His disciples in the following ways. He prayed for them consistently and passionately. He prayed for Peter and his mother in-law when she was down with fever. He prayed for all the eleven disciples when He was about to go to the Cross. He also prayed for the children. There were two occasions when He fed the people with food -loaves of bread and fish. He also served His disciples at the Passover table when He broke bread and gave them wine to drink. So, you must continue to seek and take advantage of every opportunity to serve your flock and humanity. However, you must be very conscious of who you are and watch out for some landmines satan will set on your path. The first is the landmine of pride and a haughty spirit. Pride is so subtle that if you are unable to sense its presence in your life very early and stop it, it will destroy you at the end. When you think you are better than your flock or you know what they don’t know and you want to hold it back so that they continue to walk in ignorance, then know that pride is at work in your life. Another land mine you must avoid is that of immediate gratification. A lot of the time as husbands, our services towards our flock seem to be unrewarded. And as a result, we may be tempted to want to hold back our goodwill. This is not the right way. God wants you to please Him in all things beginning with your family fold. Therefore, whatever you do, do it as unto God and not unto man.

SPIRITUAL EXERCISE

  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, empower me to be like You in all aspects of my life.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, take me deeper in love with You and let it be evident for all to see.
  • Father, in the Name of Jesus, destroy every garment of filthiness at work in my life and fill me with the newness of life in Christ.

FAITH CONFESSION

I yield my whole life to Jesus Christ so that I can be everything to my flock in Christ because that is what makes me a good and godly husband in Jesus Name. Amen.
