WORK ON YOURSELF
MAIN TEXT: Romans 12.2, ‘And be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind that he may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God’
Philippians 2.5, ‘Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus’
The will of God for every man is to be successful in every area of life, academically, spiritually, career-wise, financially, domestically as well as our relationships with other people . It is necessary that we moderate the attention we give to every area of our life. We should not be so spiritual that we neglect the academic aspects because we expect God to perform miracles, neither should we be lazy and do nothing because we serve a miracle working God.
We live in a world full of inhumane acts. Showing an act of kindness to a random stranger, not repaying evil with evil, making love your greatest watchword and mantra, living a generous life, being willing to offer help to people in need are selfless acts that do not cost the giver a dime but can go a long way in the life of the receiver.
In all things, we should strive to be the best version of ourselves than we can be, despite our inevitable flaws. No one loves to be with a liability, neither does anyone like to be friends of foolish people. Our successes shouldn’t also be centered around just one area of our life. Let’s not be so spiritual to neglect earthly wisdom concerning other areas of our lives.
SHOW ME YOUR FAITH WITHOUT WORKS AND I’LL SHOW YOU MY FAITH BY MY WORKS.
Prayer: Dear God, redefine me and transform my mindset. Help me to be the version of myself every day.BY BISHOP NGOZI DURUEKE (HE REIGNS CHAPEL INTERNATIONAL) To send your testimony, write us: firstname.lastname@example.org.
