FOLLOWING GODLY EXAMPLES


 

Today’s Reading:

Philippians 3:13-4:1

“Brethren be followers together of me and note those who so walk according to the example

you have in us. (Phil 3:17)

 

Seeing and following godly examples in our generation is becoming a difficult thing possibly because we are in the end-time. Christianity has been bastardized. Some of our well-respected leaders have lost touch with Christ and they are now pursuing the mundane things. So called children of God are comfortable around sinner and toy with sin without any grief. Men and women of substance in the things of God are becoming scarce. Preachers of holiness are drastically reducing while devil is training his men and women in the ‘seminary of worldliness’ to take over the pulpit. And in this case, what do you expect? Like pulpit like pew!


But in this midst of all these, there are still men who hates sin passionately and love God wholeheartedly. Apostle Paul was one of them in his days, he enjoined us to walk as he walked and note those walking in those steps too. As much as we study the scriptures and follow the example of Jesus, some men are still worth following as long as they are following Jesus.


We can look for the following lifestyle in taking after godly men and women.

  • Men and women who do not take sin with levity

  • Men and women who take God’s Word serious more than men’s word.

  • Those who are not happy seeing sinners heading to hell

  • Those who walk the talk and talk the walk as seen in Jesus

  • Those who are eagerly expecting the rapture of the saints and living their lives as if Christ will come today.


When the above characteristics and many more that can be found in the lives of the Apostles of old are found in men and women of this generation then they are godly examples that can be followed.

ALADE JAMES


Prayer:

  1. Any man that I am following who is not following Christ, I detach myself today, in Jesus name.

  2. May young converts who are victim of following wrong people be delivered, in Jesus name.

  3. I shall not lose sight of Jesus on my way to eternity, in Jesus name.

  4. And the earth shall be filled with the glory of God, as the waters cover the sea, in Jesus name.

  5. Father bulldoze the stronghold of wickedness in our nation and expose the works of darkness, in Jesus name.
