Theme: THE IMPORTANCE OF THE WORD OF GOD
Text: “It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his Lord…” – Matthew 10:25.
Comment: In all essential aspects of life, we must endeavour to be like our Master, Jesus Christ who made the statement in the text for today. A Christian is a believer in Jesus Christ who not only understands the will of God but also does it OurSaviour enjoins us thus: “For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you.” (John 13:15. Compare 1 Peter 2:21, 22) It is one’s heart condition, which must be right with God, and one’s ability by God’s grace to translate the vital beliefs and the high ideals of Christianity into practice that are of greater importance than our verbal confession of the faith. We should be careful in the quest for money and power or positions. Any one striving to be rich overnight and at all costs in the work of God is missing the point as he would certainly be distracted in that the devil will take advantage of him. As St. Paul said, such one will fall into temptation and a snare and into many foolish and hurtful lusts.. (1Timothy 6:6-12) The blessings of God will come to His people in His due time; but we do not have to make material acquisition our preoccupation. “A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent.” – Proverbs 28:20.
