TITLE: GREAT REWARDS FOR HOLY AND RIGHTEOUS PREACHERS
DATE: SUNDAY MAY 9 2021
TEXT: JOHN 14: 1-3
KEY VERSE: “But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.” (Hebrews 11:6).
God has decided to reward us for righteous and holy service we have rendered onto Him. You are considered special by God who had chosen you out of the so many men and women in the world. As a bride groom who has decided to take a bride to himself and all that he has belongs to the bride. All that our God has is for us and we will partake in His great treasure.
Rewarding service must be done in:
(i) Faith – God who called will reward you. Remain focused by faith.
(ii) Faithfulness – Do it according to pattern and Divine specification.
(iii) Humility – Be humble to perform service unto God. Your position should not hinder you from performing service unto God. If someone is given an assignment, be humble, listen and learn.
(iv) Holiness – Clothe yourself with the garment of holiness as a Christian,
(v) Suffering – All the patriarchs, prophets and apostle partook in suffering afflictions for their faith in God.
(vi) Wisdom – This is the principal thing, seek it and also understanding.
(vii) Love – Let it be the principle on which you work.
(viii) Prayer – It will give you victory
(ix) Righteousness–A little done in righteousness is better than great
works done without righteousness.
(x) Divine pattern – If your service is done with patience in line with Divine pattern, it gives sweet savour to God.
The greatest reward is that the Lord is around you in this life and after all, He will take you to heaven for eternal life.
Thought for the day: God will perfect you as you win souls for Him
Song for the day: What is the hope we have? The kingdom of God is the hope…
