IMITATION OF CHRIST – Thomas A. Kempis

Vanity of vanities, all is vanity, except to love God, and Him only serve. 

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

POSSESSION OF THE AWARENESS OF THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY – 1 Cor 12

It is essential to be aware of the fact that you have been birthed into a Christian Family of which God is your Father. The Family is likened to a human body with its differing parts and all are called upon to function to the benefit of the other parts – 1 Cor 12: 12-27. Just as the persons and believers differ, so do their abilities – vv28-30. You must know who and where you are in the Christian community and discover what gifts the Lord has assigned you and begin to function and do your part.

One of the choice things about the early Church, they gathered daily for worship and to see how they could help and bless each other – see Acts 2: 42. They felt it imperative to meet and to get to know one know one another much more and see how they could best serve and assist within Christendom. Each individual was of importance and required in its growth and blessedness.

Realize above all, that Christ has placed you in His body, gifted you and desires that you begin to exercise His gifts within your life. Remember, you serve Him. He is the Head of the body and seeks always to stir and stimulate each member to be active and fruitful. At the conclusion, He intends to reward all faithful service rendered to him and His body. So be at your best for him who is the best in your attendance at church gatherings and ministry.

DAILY MEDITATIONS

GOD’S CONSIDERATION – Isaiah 66

God gives an assurance on the individual level. He says: “But to this man will I look, even to him that is poor and of a humble spirit, and trembleth at My word” – v2. No uncertainty exists as He declares the kind of people He is looking for and the ones that will command His attention, affection and benediction. One translator puts it: “I will bless those who have humble and contrite hearts…” The reason why God observes our life is in order to outpour His grace on those whose spirits are right. Those who have immense respect for Him and His Word gain His consideration.

In turn, it means knowing and experiencing in fullest measure His blessing in and on life. This healthy fear of the Lord paved the way for Him to come down and dispense multiple blessing. He desired to bless each one spiritually, physically, mentally, morally, materially etc. They were to enjoy His good hand being open and filled with choice gifts that would make their existence delightful. The reward for their proper attitude of being would consummate in the outstanding good things of the Lord expressed in a bountiful manner and measure.

The principle still exists. As you set this spiritual rule in operation, it will be known that God still honours those who give utmost attention to Him and to His revealed Word. In pleasing Him at all times, He will compensate you with untold tokens of His love and goodness. A man of God came to Eli and stated God’s Word in similar terms: “for them that honour Me I will honour, and they that despise Me shall be lightly esteemed” – 1 Samuel 2: 20. Putting God in His rightful place and revering Him at all times, and His Word, leads to the total enrichment of life. It could not be better.
