17 Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.
Today’s Inspiration: It’s God’s will that we be sanctified. Jesus pray to God to sanctify us. John 17:17, 1 Thessalonians 4:3. Many a time we do not have self-control of the flesh. Some eat without limits and without consideration as to whether it will ruin our health. This is why our body is sick. We could not discern our body. 1 Corinthians 11:27.
For God did not call us to be impure but to live a holy life. Whoever rejects this instruction, does not reject man but God. The reason why God gives us the Holy spirit is to make us understand the scripture and be convicted that we might repent and watch our walk with God. 1 Thessalonians 4:7-9. Brotherly love is what is desired of God. Apostle Paul exhorts us to increase in brotherly love and do not strive with them. Verse 10.
He commissioned us to make disciples but before we can do that, we must reflect our attitudes in our daily life. If so, we not only win the respect of all but also others who are unsaved. Who knows God sent them to you at a time like this that they might hear of your Good report and be saved? Verses 11-12. We should take responsibility of our daily life and God will bless the work of our hands. May the Lord direct your hearts into God’s love and Christ’s perseverance. 2 Thessalonians 3:5.
Apostle Paul also warns us that people who are not busy with work but are busybodies. He said if we don’t work, we don’t eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10-12. Verse 10 truly speaks to me that when I was waiting upon the Lord one day for His will. It’s like a bomb exploding in my ears. He has spoken to me on publishing media but I do not know how to get about it as I have never been a publisher. I only do magazine for the church. He rebuked me with this verse and immediately I set to work to explore what other publishers do. Like Apostle Paul I had to be a tent maker at that point of time. I did not know He was preparing me to plant a church for professionals and their families. Apostle Paul tells us to follow his example. He was not idle nor did he eat anyone’s food without paying. This is why you must give to God for the mana He is giving to you. Those who give are truly blessed. He toiled so that he would not be a burden to the church. 2 Thessalonians 3:7-8.
Today God is calling me back to publishing media so that we can reap the wealth of the Gentiles back to His kingdom so that the church be not unduly burdened. But the sole purpose of this media is to bring the generation of 20s to 30s to the Lord through this magazine and social media whilst going by faith to allow God to provide for the extension of His Kingdom. May the truths in this magazine set people free from bondage of Babylon which is falling little by little.
God needs more talents in His kingdom and may we be used by God to bring professionals and entrepreneurs of 30s to the Lord that they could impact the world for Christ through their spheres of influence.
