Dear brothers and sisters!
Today, I want to challenge each of you to become more responsible. Not only the world or the church need responsible people, but also God. Being a Christian is a responsibility. God lifts up and raises exactly those who agree to become responsible. Jesus speaks on this in the next passage:
«For unto every one that hath shall be given, and he shall have abundance: but from him that hath not shall be taken away even that which he hath. And cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.»(Мatth.25:29-30)
Irresponsible people lose their positions and everything that they own; whereas responsible people multiply their influence and grace. If you want to experience rise from God this year, then make a decision to become responsible in all the spheres of your life.
By the way, the church membership is a responsibility too. Every member of a church has a duty to get acquainted with aims and tasks of the church, let it through their hearts, let it overwhelm you and bind the aim of your life with these Godly aims in order to honour God with your life every day. God has promised to honour those who honour Him.
«Wherefore the LORD God of Israel saith, I said indeed that thy house, and the house of thy father, should walk before me for ever: but now the LORD saith, Be it far from me; for them that honour me I will honour, and they that despise me shall be lightly esteemed..» (1 Sam 2:30)
«If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.» (John 12:26)
Behold, therefore I can surely assert that everyone who takes upon themselves responsibility and honour God with their lives, are already walking the road to be raised by God.
I wish you accomplishments and success on this road.
Until the time we meet again!
