BREAKFAST WITH THE HOLYGHOST
AUTHOR: SAPELE JACKSON
DATE: SATURDAY 18TH FEBRUARY, 2017
WEEKLY MEAL: LIFE
TODAY’S TOPIC: PURPOSE
AMP “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose”
God created us with a plan and a purpose in mind. He created us with the intention that here on earth we will do his good work.
1 Peter 2:9 gives us more insight: “But you are A CHOSEN RACE, A royal PRIESTHOOD, A CONSECRATED NATION, A [special]PEOPLE FOR God’s OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvellous light.”
Why are we here? To show forth the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of the One who has called us.
You are the light of the earth, you are a city that is set on a hill, what are you meant to be attracting? The goodness of your life should be able to bring men to God.
The Bible tells us in Luke 11:34 ‘the light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light; but when thine eye is evil, thy body also is full of darkness.’ The light here is a revelation of God gotten through his Word. You see the Christian faith is an inward-outward movement. Whatever you’re getting inside must be reflected outside, you can’t hide it except you choose to (but you shouldn’t).
The Bible tells us ‘Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven’. Paraphrased; Let what you know about God be reflected in your life. If your light is not shining, you’re wrong. If you don’t have any light in you (the knowledge of God) to be able to give forth the God kind of presence whenever you’re around people, you’re very wrong. Don’t be a Christian who emits wickedness. Don’t be a Christian who emits evil. Show forth the praises of your Father.
Out of the abundance of your heart, your mouth speaks. If you’re speaking something contrary to the word of God check your heart. If you are a ‘Christian’ then be Christ-like (live a Godly life). Show forth the perfections of your father; be like God, so when men see you they’ll be attracted to God.
