PROMOTE HIS RIGHTEOUSNESS
For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south (Psalm 75:6).
When God puts you in a particular job or business, His interest isn’t about the office or your designation. What matters to Him is how effectively you’re using your office to promote His righteousness. He wants you passionate for the Gospel and the establishment of His Kingdom in the hearts of men and nations of the earth.
Everywhere you are, be busy for the Lord. Stand for Him. You’re His ambassador, and a minister of reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5:20-21). What counts the most in your life is what you do with the Gospel,
for the salvation of men, regardless of your vocation.
The Apostle Paul, in 2 Corinthians 8:23, commended certain individuals who were with him on his missionary journeys. He was proud of their
commitment to the Gospel and said, “…they are the messengers of the churches and the glory of Christ.” What a testimony! Messengers of the churches and the glory of Christ. What an honour! It makes no difference where you are, or what your vocation is; see yourself
as a sent one, representing the Church and the glory of Christ.
Preach the Gospel. Minister the Word to those in your world. The Bible says He’s made you an “able minister of the New Testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter kills, but the spirit gives life” (2
Corinthians 3:6). You’re God’s mouthpiece; speak for Him! Do His work. Do great things for the Kingdom. Be bold. Let nothing keep you quiet. Keep bearing His message of faith, hope, and love with urgency, for the end of all things is near (1 Peter 4:7).
Blessed Father, I thank you for the grace you’ve granted me to be relevant in the ministry of the Gospel, preaching and spreading your righteousness around the world. My life is the testimony of your
power as I bear witness of Christ and testify of His saving grace, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
