SERVE THE LORD WELL
///// SUNESIS OF CHRIST /////
Day 162 | 11 June 2021 | Apostle Gideon C Boateng
The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
1 Peter 5:1-4 (KJV).
Every person's ambition should be to grow into being and doing all that God requires of them; this is because, Life is lived in God and for God (Col 1:16) . Irrespective of the field you find yourself currently, strive to come to the place where God is fully the center of all you do and the reason for anything you do. This will become easy when you understand that you were made by God for God and nothing best suits you than living the will of God.
Ministers of God should take care of the flock from their heart willingly not for their money's sake but looking forward to the coming of the Lord who has the best reward for them. Not lording it over and abusing the flock but being examples to them as Christ is to us.
The Police, Doctor, Judge, Lawyer, Teacher etc. must also live for the Lord in all sincerity and purity of character not abusing the people they work with. They must serve in those capacities as if serving the Lord, being a light that points all who come to them to the Christ in them. This shouldn't be difficult if we understand that we are first children of God, filled with the Spirit of God and living for the purpose of God before our current profession. It is improper for us to be a light that doesn't brighten anything or a salt that has no taste at the work side.
Be determined to live for God in this present evil world. Be resolved to serve the Lord well irrespective of the challenges. It will all make sense and payoff the day the Lord shall appear to reward all His faithful servants (Matt 25:21).
