THE BLESSINGS OF MENTORSHIP
Main Text: Romans 1:11 “For I long to see you that I may impart unto you some spiritual gift, to the end ye may be established”.
Romans 1:12 “That is, that I may be comforted together with you by the mutual faith both of you and me”.
Beloved of God, in life, there is always somebody to follow, for you to become great. There must be one to work under. There is no star without a coach. That is your mentor or your spiritual Father. Before Jesus the Creator was launched into the ministry, He went through some training under His parents. Luke 2:51 says, He subjected Himself under their tutelage and control. He allowed Himself to be baptized by John. If you are not humble and patient enough to undergo training, you will end up as a bad leader.
Joshua took over from Moses. He had never been a prophet, but followed a prophet. He was not one of the priests appointed; he only kept the prophet’s company. When he accompanied Moses to see God, he knew what others do not know. Elisha was under Elijah, even when Elijah says, go I have released you, he said no; I must follow you till the end. He hooked unto Elijah and was blessed with the double portions of power, Grace and anointing etc.
Beloved of God, submit yourself for mentorship. If you have spiritual fathers, or spiritual mothers, accompany them and you will learn a lot. And your mentor will give you spiritual cover, when you are attacked.
