A GREEK WOMAN APPLIED FAITH AND RECEIVED HER MIRACLE – Mark 7

persistent faith

People Must Operate In Faith To Experience God’s Power

One Grecian woman, in the Bible, seized an opportunity to receive an unqualified miracle of Jesus Christ. Of course, Jesus was nice to everyone, but he was on a different mission when the Grecian woman intercepted him and demanded her miracle. Despite Jesus’ objection to the demand, the woman insisted that Jesus must help her. The Messiah positively responded and credited the woman for her great faith.

The Bible reported,

“Jesus left that place and went to the vicinity of Tyre. He entered a house and did not want anyone to know it; yet he could not keep his presence secret. In fact, as soon as she heard about him, a woman whose little daughter was possessed by an impure spirit came and fell at his feet. The woman was a Greek, born in Syrian Phoenicia. She begged Jesus to drive the demon out of her daughter. “First let the children eat all they want,” he told her, “for it is not right to take the children’s bread and toss it to the dogs.” “Lord,” she replied, “even the dogs under the table eat the children’s crumbs.” Then he told her, “For such a reply, you may go; the demon has left your daughter.” She went home and found her child lying on the bed, and the demon gone (Mark 7:24-30 NIV).

Persistent Faith Is Essential To Receiving God’s Miracle

Have persistent faith!

Anyone who expects to receive the miracle of God must operate in faith. Indeed, God has unrestricted power to do whatever he likes; however, God maintains a principle to only honor people who operate in faith. That is, the Creator will help someone who cast an absolute trust in him. (God will help a person of faith no matter how heavy or light the weight of his or her problem may be).

Meanwhile, not just any claim of faith works with God; someone must have had an actionable faith to have his or her expectations met. That is, a person who claims to have faith in God must also demonstrate courage by taking every necessary step that will help his or her aspiration.

Faith Requires Your Action

Faith requires an action! A child of God who desires to receive God’s miracle must pray and engage his (or her) tasks. The person must be proactive and work towards receiving the expected miracle.

For example, a believer who expects to have good health must go for a medical checkup to know the status of his health. The step taken will help him to appropriately take care of his body, and the report will guide him to know what to pray about and the precautions to take. Another example, someone who wants to have financial breakthrough cannot stay idle and expects God’s miracle to happen. The mathematics will not add up! The person must be diligent in his (or her) work as he remains prayerful. The Lord of Miracle will, therefore, bestow mercy and release his blessings on the serious individual.

Faith Must Come With The Right Attitude

Faith and actions works. As a child of God, you must operate with actionable faith to have your expectations met. Meanwhile, if you claim to be a person of faith, then you must have believed in what the power of God can do for you through his Son Jesus Christ! Understand that God is not a magician, he won’t act until you meet his requirements.

Pray For Grace And Power To Demonstrate Faith

Dear God I believe that you have the power to do all things. There is no limit to what you can do for people who trust in you. I also understand that you require your children to be proactive in their works as they take the steps of faith. Therefore, I pray that you help me to put my faith to practice by taking proactive steps that will lead to my breakthrough. I believe in the scripture that states, “I can do all things through Christ that strengthens me!” I believe there is no limit to the number of miracles that I can receive through faith in Jesus Christ! Please give me the strength to put my faith into practice so that I can prosper in the land of the living. Let my testimony abide and glorify your name! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

CHRISTIANS MUST DEMONSTRATE TRUE LOVE – 1 Timothy

true love

Christians To Follow The Footstep of Christ and Love Others

The word love carries an important meaning in the Bible. God centralized his laws on love. Even besides that, God performs all his activities with love. He created Adam (and Eve) based on love. God also sent his only Son Jesus Christ to come and save the world. Jesus, upon arriving the earth, established the Christian religion on the principle of love.

The scripture explained love as the essential credential for all Christians as stated,

“Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from sincere faith, from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk” (1 Timothy 1:5-6). Bible also states, “Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness” (1 John 2:9 NIV).

Love Has No Substitute In Christianity

Love is an essential factor that makes Christianity relevant on earth. God outsourced love and demonstrated it for humans to emulate. The Creator allowed his Son Jesus Christ to die for the world for the sake of love. The Bible clearly states,

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life” (John 3:16).

Jesus Christ the Son of God came to earth and operated on the principle of God’s love. He centralized his sermon on love. Christ was persecuted for love. He lived and die for love!

Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world, championed true love for people in the world to benefit. Christians also have the same obligation to demonstrate the true love of God. In other words, anyone who claims to be a Christian must understand the meaning of true love and demonstrate it.

However, the word love is a universal term, and some people have misused it. Christians must clearly understand what love mean. Love is not the same as sensuality. That is, love is not erratic, neither is it erotic. In short, love must not be regarded as a means of gratifying the fleshly lust. True love glorifies God; it does not have an evil connotation.

Sin is not part of true love. Love is not partial. Love is not selfish. Love is not biased. Anyone who desires to go to heaven must exercise true love – since it glorifies God! A true Christian must love his or her neighbors with a godly mindset. A child of God who desires to satisfy God must not mistreat others. He or she must only demonstrate God’s approved agape love.

It is important that anyone who intends to make heaven on the last day demonstrates God’s unconditional love of God.

 

Pray For The Strength To Demonstrate True Love

Dear God, please help me to demonstrate a genuine love that glorifies your name. I understand that no one will be able to go to heaven without demonstrating a true love. Please give me the strength needed to truly love other people. Help me to genuinely love you and love other people with a pure heart. Please keep my heart pure with true love so that I can qualify for your eternal kingdom! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

SEXUAL SIN IRRITATES GOD – 1 THESSALONIANS

holy

Human Body Is Temple Of The Holy Spirit

(Passage: 1 Thessalonians 4)

God commanded his children to abstain from the practices of fornication and adultery so that he can bless them. Since God is holy, anyone who desires to satisfy his standard must be holy as well. A person who maintains the sanity of his body to honor God will prosper in this life and in heaven. It is written in the scripture,

“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you should abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor, not in passion of lust, like the Gentiles who do not know God; that no one should take advantage of and defraud his brother in this matter, because the Lord is the avenger of all such, as we also forewarned you and testified. For God did not call us to uncleanness, but in holiness” (1 Thessalonians 4:3-7 NKJV).

word of God

Believers Must Keep Their Body Pure

The practices of fornication and adultery are sinful; they irritate God, therefore believers must desist from them. People who engage in a sexual sin must also understand that the practices corrupt their bodies – Which is considered as the temple of Holy Spirit.

The scripture emphasized that human body is God’s temple, and it must be kept pure at all times (1 Corinthians 6:19). Anyone who prioritizes holiness will receive a special attention from God and be blessed.

 

prayer

Pray For God’s Grace To Be Holy

Dear God, I understand that my body is the temple of the Holy Spirit which I must keep pure at all times. I am sorry for any immoral activity that I have engaged in the past. I repent from them and I promise to start living a holy life before you. Please give me the grace and power to meet your expectations. Keep me qualified for your earthly and heavenly benefits. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

CHRISTIANS MUST BE PIOUS TO GOD – 1 JOHN

devoted

Believers Must Be Devoted to God

(Passage: 1 John)

Jesus Christ is the light of the world. He is the savior of the world. Through him shall all people receive the forgiveness of their sins and be saved. Unrepentant sinners should not hesitate to repent of their sins and confess Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Also, people who have accepted Christ as their Savior must be devoted. They must ensure not to abuse their salvation privilege. Believers must satisfy God with a holiness lifestyle.

The word of God states,

“This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us” (1 John 1:5-10 ESV).

word of God

God Desires A Complete Devotion From Everyone

All people must submit to the feet of Jesus Christ and be saved. It is important that Christians relate to God with honesty. We must be faithful to our Master! We must confess our misdeed to him and repent. Our repentance must be genuine before God.

In addition, believers must be humble before God and diligently serve him with the beauty of his holiness. In other words, we must be completely devoted to God. We must daily seek God through prayers and praises. More importantly, we must allow the indwelling spirit of God (Holy Spirit) empower us to satisfy God in all ramifications.

A Christian must not be arrogant in his/her dealings with God. The Creator will distance himself from us if we are arrogant or self-righteous!

prayer

Prayer For Grace To Be Devoted To God

Dear God, please help me to keep an honest relationship with you at all times. Help me to be truthful to you and be humble so that I can prosper in all my ways. Let my confession of a sin and the repentance exercise be genuine. Please fill me with the Holy Spirit to live an acceptable life before. Prosper me in all my ways! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

CHRISTIAN: BE CAREFUL OF FALSE TEACHERS – 2 JOHN

false teachers

False Teachers Will Deceive Many People

Some false teachers will rise during the period of the end time to deceive many people. Christians must ensure not to fall victim of those fake leaders.

In most cases, the deceptive teachers do not declare their identities; they camouflage as agents of light to manipulate people for their selfish gains.

False teachers will rob people of money and materials. They will also cause many people to lose their salvation and be doomed in hellfire.

Folks who believe false teachings run the risk of losing their souls to Satan and end up in hellfire. The scripture warned,

“I say this because many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what we have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully” (2 John 1:7-8 NIV).

 

end time

Watch Out For Fake Religion Leaders

Christians are warned to be careful and not fall victim of preachings that are not consistent with the standard of the Bible. Believers are advised to be in friendship with their Bible. They must read it diligently! They must study the scripture with a mindset to have a better understanding of God’s laws and comply with them.

Christians must ensure not to believe any theory that lacks the basis of the Bible. We must be prayerful and be disciplined to uphold the principles of the Bible.

Believers must not go with the wave of accommodating the unbiblical (but convenient) theories that our society celebrate. Christians must not allow the cares of this world to cause us to lose our salvation that Christ suffered to earn for us.

God will bless any Christian that stands firm with the testimony of Jesus Christ and complies with Bible standard. Jehovah will reward his faithful children with an imperishable crown of glory in his kingdom.

 

prayer

Pray For The Strength To Be Watchful

Dear God, Please save me from the deceptive teachers that manipulate people into losing their salvation. Help me to comply with the standard of your word. Enable me with the strength to daily read my Bible so that I can better understand your laws and comply with them. Let my devotion be meaningful to you, and please keep my feet firm within thy gate O Lord! Let me remain steadfast before you so that I can qualify for an imperishable crown of glory in your kingdom! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

CHRISTIANS TO PREACH GOSPEL ALWAYS – 2 Timothy

evangelization

Believers In Christ Must Prioritize Gospel Evangelization

(Passage: 2 Timothy 4)

The scripture requires Christians to always preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to other people so that they can have an opportunity to be saved. Christians have the mandate to spread the gospel (good news) of Jesus Christ. We must share his message to as many people as possible without holding back.

Christians must prioritize gospel evangelization like Christ himself did. The Son of God received the mandate from God to save the lost souls, and he sacrificed everything he had to fulfill the mission.

Jesus Christ endured and overcame all the challenges that crossed his path for the sake of accomplishing the goal of establishing a salvation pathway for humankind. Christ came to the earth to preach the gospel; he suffered and died for the course. He declared, “Mission accomplished” on the cross. Believers must also follow suit and prioritize gospel evangelization as God required.

Christians have the obligation to extend the gospel light to all people around us, and beyond. Paul challenged Timothy (as well as other Christians throughout the world) to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ. Paul said,

“I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables” (2 Timothy 4:1-4 KJV).

Gospel Evangelization Is A-Must For Every Christian

Christians have the obligation to prioritize gospel evangelization since we have been commissioned to do so by the scripture. We are commanded to spread the gospel, and we must do so!

No Christian should consider it optional to evangelize the gospel. We are all mandated to do so!

Christians must not hoard the message of the Cross; we must preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to everyone around us!

  • Christians must preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to people of every tongue, nation, and tribe. We must preach without giving any preference to people’s religion, race or culture.
  • Christians must preach the gospel without reservation!
  • Believers must not only preach the gospel when it is convenient. We must also do so when we feel it is not convenient.
  • Christians must not preach the gospel to satisfy human feelings. Irrespective of our mood, we must preach the gospel at all times.

It is important to emphasize that a Christian does not need any religion title to qualify for the task of evangelizing the gospel.

Who Is Qualified To Preach The Gospel?

  • Every Christian is qualified to preach the gospel.
  • A believer must preach whether he or she is a church member, a pastor, a teacher, a deacon, an evangelist, a bishop, a pope, or any other title.
  • It is not mandatory that a Christian must have a particular church umbrella to preach the gospel. The motive of gospel evangelism must be to populate the kingdom of God.
  • No special tool is needed for preaching the gospel of Jesus Christ. A person only needs to share his or her bible-based knowledge to other people.
  • The gospel message must centralize on encouraging a sinner to repent of his or her sins and confess Jesus Christ as Lord. Whosoever takes a step of faith by confessing Jesus Christ as his or her personal Lord and Savior shall be saved.

The scripture declares,

“That if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation” (Rom. 10:9-10 NKJV).

Be A True Christ’s Ambassador And Preach The Gospel!

Christians must bear plenty profits for the kingdom of God. To achieve this, we must make a significant effort to step out of our comfort zones. We must preach at a time convenient and at a time not convenient. In short, we must preach the gospel at all times!

Every child of God must prioritize gospel evangelization above his or her personal interests.

God will reward a believer that diligently preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to other people. The bearer of Christ’s good news will receive an imperishable crown of glory in God’s kingdom.

A Christian who hoards the gospel will not be highly esteemed by God! Those who avoid the responsibility of sharing their gospel faith with others and those who sabotage gospel evangelization efforts will meet some unfavorable surprises on the Lord’s day of judgment.

Pray For God’s Enablement To Preach The Gospel

Dear God, please empower me to faithfully preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to all people. Please energize me by the Holy Spirit to proclaim your good news to people of different tongues and tribes. Help me to preach the gospel when convenient and when not convenient. Give me the grace to proclaim your good news on the mountain and in the valley.

Empower me to use my resources to promote your kingdom from coast to coast so that people from all walks of life can come to the light of Jesus’ salvation.

Please help me to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to my neighbors, my friends, and my family so that they can be saved! Help me to maximize every opportunity I have to lead a multitude of people to your kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ my Lord I have prayed. Amen.

THE INFALLIBLE CHARACTERISTICS OF JESUS CHRIST – Hebrews

power

Jesus Christ Possesses An Indescribable Power For Signs and Wonders

Jesus Christ is an extraordinary being that possesses the unusual power to make an impossible situation becomes possible. The Bible revealed the Lordship identity of Jesus Christ describing him with revelations that are beyond a human comprehension. The Bible emphasized that Jesus Christ is a God-man (The God in human form) that will rule the whole world with a scepter of righteousness. It is written,

“But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” He also says, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end” (Hebrews 1:8-12 NIV).

As the Book of Hebrews referenced (above) described, God has honored Jesus Christ with a rare privilege to reign above every other being that either exist on earth or in heaven.

God specially anointed Jesus Christ to lead a kingdom that will last eternally. Believers in Jesus Christ will reign with him. We shall reign with him in his kingdom!

miracle

Jesus Christ Awards Victory For His Followers

Some benefits that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will award his followers include the followings:

  1. An opportunity to reign with him in his eternal kingdom.
  2. An opportunity to be considered as royal people on earth to be co-sharers of all God’s benefits.
  3. An opportunity to exercise dominion in all situations (including both on natural and spiritual matters).

Jesus Christ is more or less the foundation of faith and the rooftop of salvation. He declared himself in the Bible as the “Alfa and Omega” (The beginning and the ending). (Revelation 1:8)

Jesus Christ initiated a process of salvation for all people to enjoy a permanent relationship with God.

Jesus Christ is more or less the foundation of faith and the rooftop of salvation. He has the power to rule eternally! The Bible declares him as the “Alfa and Omega.”

Christ is the perfection of God’s love. He simplified the laws of God for all people to understand and comply with.

Jesus (The Son of God) sacrificed his life to save humanity, leaving a blank check for anyone interested to benefit from. Whosoever declares Jesus Christ as the Son of God and accept him as his or her personal Lord and Savior will be saved.

People of different status now have an opportunity to become children of God by simply confessing Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and Savior. Whosoever takes this important step will be called a child of God and his or her name shall be written in God’s book of life.

Jesus Christ has infallible power to do all things!

Jesus sacrificed his life on the cross to save humanity. His effort leaves us a blank check to claim some immeasurable benefits from God. Christ’s completed salvation process provides humanity a pathway to permanently inherit the kingdom of God.

faith

An Actionable Prayer of Faith

Dear Jesus Christ, I understand that you are the Son of God that was sent to save the sinners like me. You laid down your life for any sinner to confess his/her sin, repent, and declare you as Lord. I understand the importance of what you have done for me; therefore, I declare you as my personal Lord and Savior! I also confess my sins and repent from them. I promise to live the rest of my life serving you. Please give me the grace to keep my promises unto the end. Help me to faithfully serve you unto the end of my life! so that I can be a partaker of your eternal kingdom. Thank you, Jesus Christ, for saving my soul! Amen.

PAUL WARNED CHRISTIANS NOT TO BE LAZY – 2 Thessalonians

diligence

Children of God Must Work Hard to Succeed

Passage: 2 Thessalonians 3

Paul encouraged the Thessalonians Christians not to be lazy people. They must work hard; be productive, and be responsible for their family and the society. Paul said,

“For we hear that there are some who walk among you in a disorderly manner, not working at all, but are busybodies. Now those who are such we command and exhort through our Lord Jesus Christ that they work in quietness and eat their own bread. But as for you, brethren, do not grow weary in doing good” (2 Thessalonians 3:11-13).

lazy

Christians Must Be Industrious For God’s Honor

Christianity is a religion that promotes hard works. Children of God must understand that they have an obligation to work hard and provide for the members of their immediate family. On top of that, they have to be productive for their society!

A Christian must not mistake his religion activity as a substitute for caring for the members of his or her family.

A Christian parent or child has some important roles to play in the family. He or she must assume those roles.

A Christian who appropriately assumes his or her role in the family will honor God and also send a clear message to the unbelievers that we serve a disciplined God who blesses hard works.

Pray for God’s Grace and Strength to be Diligent

Dear God, please give me the grace to be a diligent Christian who takes care of his (or her) family. Make me someone that labors for the purpose of caring for my family members. Please let my good works make you proud and challenge others to be responsible for their homes. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

IMMORALITY WILL GAIN GROUND DURING END TIME – Jude

Christians Be Watchful Of Immoral Activities

Passage: Jude 1

The final days are here, and Christians are warned to beware of the surge of immoral activities that will perpetuate the earth. Bible warned that some insensitive believers would fall short of signs of the end time, thereby be deceived. Christians who are insensitive to the signs of end time will accommodate a sin rather than resisting it. The Bible declares,

“…These are grumblers, complainers, walking according to their own lusts; and they mouth great swelling words, flattering people to gain advantage. But you, beloved, remember the words which were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ: how they told you that there would be mockers in the last time who would walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not having the Spirit” (Jude 1:16-19).

Despite the reign of promiscuity and other ungodly activities that will perpetuate the society during the crucial period of end time, the heavenly bound Christians will keep their body pure and maintain a godly status that will make them befit rapture – The second coming of Jesus Christ.

Christians Must Be Sensitive, Watchful, and Prayerful

The present-day believers must understand that Satan-the enemy of righteousness has crafted some new methods to influence people and prepare them for hellfire. Besides some major sins that people are familiar with, the enemy keeps introducing other subtle ones – Which are not easily detected. Believers who are not spiritually sensitive quickly fall into these sins without realizing them.

Christians must take a decisive step to stand by the principles of the Bible. They must not compromise their stand against sin. That is, a Christian must neither support nor practice any behavior that Bible rejects. For example, the society now promotes homosexuality as if it is not sinful. The view which does not go well with God. Therefore, Christians must not entertain it!

Christians must take precaution and learn from the Bible to understand the mind of God and comply with his standard. A Christian who studies his or her Bible is in the best position to be familiar with the laws of God. The person also exposes himself or herself to the Holy Spirit’s empowerment to receive God’s strength to obey his laws. Also, a believer who prays for God’s strength to keep himself or herself fit for heaven will receive God’s answer.

Pray For Grace To Keep Yourself Fit For God’s Kingdom

Dear God, I pray that you please give me the grace and ability to keep myself pure so that I can befit your kingdom. Help me to diligently study the Bible and follow its teaching so that I can prosper! Let the Holy Spirit inspire and empower me to understand your word. Please save me from the subtle sins that the enemy is using to deceive people and prepare them for eternal damnation of hellfire. Please count me worthy of your eternal kingdom O Lord! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

CHRISTIANS TO LIVE EXEMPLARY LIVES – Philippians

good example

Christian Must Be Moral and Portray a Good Example

Passage: Philippians 4

Christians are required to be honest in their relationship with God; they must be godly role models that are suitable for other people to emulate. Christians must understand that unbelievers are watching our behaviors to derive motivation for serving God. Believers must not fail our due diligence of positively influencing the unbelievers and leading them to become God’s worshipers. The scripture emphasized,

“Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things” (Philippians 4:8).

exemplary

Believers to Serve God with Pure Motives

Christians must serve God with a pure motive and portray a godly example for other people to emulate. Christians’ services must satisfy God. Our practices must motivate other people to love and serve God as well. Christians must understand that we have an obligation to live the exemplary lifestyle for other people to emulate (especially the unbelievers).

Despite the need to meet the pious obligation of faithfully serving God and leading others with godly examples, Christians still face the reality of being powerless without the help of the Holy Spirit. Believers will not have enough strength to adequately meet the mandate to be a true ambassador of Jesus Christ. Christians, like other humans, have weak nature that cannot easily comply with the standard of God. We must rely on the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to adequately serve God and positively influence others.

To have the ability to faithfully serve God and offer godly leadership for other people, Christians must daily pray to receive the empowerment of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit of God will also offer us divine guidance to make an appropriate decision and honor God. The Holy Spirit will indeed properly guide and aid us in meeting the standard of God which include an ability to faithfully serve him on earth and befit his kingdom.

Christians should consider it an important matter to pray for the empowerment of the Holy Spirit to meet God’s requirements and appropriately serve him.

Ask God to make you a good example for other people to emulate. May you ever remain a true ambassador of Jesus Christ!

pious

Prayer for God’s Grace to be a Good Example for Others

Dear God, please I need the help of the Holy Spirit to be a good Christian that faithfully represents you on earth. Let your divine Holy Spirit guide me to live in compliance with the Bible standard so that I can prosper! Please let me be a good example for other people to emulate. Also, let my services bring glory unto your name and ever keep me worthy of your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
