Topic: BE COMMITTED AND DEDICATED TO YOUR CALLING
Acts 5:12-16 King James Version (KJV)
12 And by the hands of the apostles were many signs and wonders wrought among the people; (and they were all with one accord in Solomon's porch.
13 And of the rest durst no man join himself to them: but the people magnified them.
14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)
15 Insomuch that they brought forth the sick into the streets, and laid them on beds and couches, that at the least the shadow of Peter passing by might overshadow some of them.
16 There came also a multitude out of the cities round about unto Jerusalem, bringing sick folks, and them which were vexed with unclean spirits: and they were healed every one.
Beloved, the early Christians lived their lives such that nobody lacked. The Apostles did not have anything to worry about but for prayer and the study of the Word of God.
The Apostles were dedicated and committed to their calling. It was topmost priority on their agenda. Ministry and God didn't come second, they always came first on the agenda.
God anointed them so much that the shadow of Peter healed the sick. These signs, wonders and miracles caused the people to revere God and the Lord added to the Church daily.
Beloved, our dedication and commitment to what God has given to us, as ministry, through which we serve Him determines how successful the ministry would be.
The Lord looks at this dedication and commitment then honours your work by blessing your ministry with signs, wonders and miracles.
As the Lord blesses you, He teaches you and grooms you. Your maturity level in the Kingdom keeps going higher and higher, deeper and deeper.
Your maturity level tells your capacity and as your capacity increases, the Lord increases the work in your hands so you do more. The ministry grows and many more souls and responsibilities are added each day. Then your blessings and supplies also increases daily.
Beloved, the Apostles also trusted God to take care of them and supply their every need. They had a lot of faith, such that they did not depend on the regular worldly jobs they had when Jesus met them and called them.
Beloved, let us be committed and also have great faith in Jesus and we would testify to the goodness and greatness of His name and the mighty power of the Lord as written of the Apostles in the Book of Acts.
Beloved, *ITS ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. If we keep the focus on Jesus and give our all to push the Kingdom Agenda. You will fulfil your purpose and the fulfilment of your purpose would support me to fulfil mine.
Our purposes are linked in the Kingdom so until we help each other in the fulfilment of our various callings, none of us can fulfil our individual calling.
Prayer: FATHER HELP ME FULFIL MY CALLING TO PUSH THE KINGDOM AGENDA. IN THE MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS I PRAY. AMEN.
