Seed of Destiny Devotional Wednesday, 26 October 2016 – Dr. Paul Enenche
TOPIC: Upholding Godly Character
SCRIPTURE: Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid…Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Mathew 5:14-16
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: God’s Word is a major tool for character reformation.
From our anchor Scripture, we see that Christians are the standard bearers and road pointers of every generation. We are designed to be pace-setters, not pace-keepers. Just like the British colonised Nigeria, Christians are meant to colonize the world for Christ. But it is unfortunate that our world is experiencing degeneration because most Christians have refused to set the standard for the world.
Now, how do we maintain a Godly character in this degenerating world?
BY FEEDING ON THE WORD OF GOD
Psalms 119:130 says, The entrance of thy words giveth light… The entrance of God’s Word is the doorway to illumination. And when Light comes, darkness checks out. The darkness of negative character can be arrested by the Light of the Word.
The dark manifestations of occultism, criminality and addiction will continue when the Word has not entered one’s life. Until the Word enters, life remains in darkness. So, God’s Word is a major tool for character reformation.
The Word of God reveals Divine precepts and principles. You cannot be in touch with the ways of God and miss road in life or end in the traps of the enemy.
Remember this: God’s Word is a major tool for character reformation.
1.Study the Word of God daily.
2.Meditate on the revelation of God’s Word.
3.Make demands on the grace to live like Christ.
