Revelation 5:10, 9
We have a duty to mankind
Romans 8:18 NKJV
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Be all you can be. God’s word is all about developing ourselves and much of this comes through trials and tests. God knows what your potential is and He has a target for you.
The people who are growing in God’s church are serving!
1 Peter 1:3-16
1 Thessalonians 4:18
I Peter 1:13-16 NKJV
Therefore gird up the loins of your mind, be sober, and rest your hope fully upon the grace that is to be brought to you at the revelation of Jesus Christ; as obedient children, not conforming yourselves to the former lusts, as in your ignorance; but as He who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, because it is written, “Be holy, for I am holy.” (Leviticus 11:44)
Ephesians 4:10-16 NKJV
He who descended is also the One who ascended far above all the heavens, that He might fill all things.) And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ; that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love.
2 Peter 3:14
It’s not a matter of competition, it’s about recognition. We need to recognize where are gifts lie and focus on those areas and not push ourselves into areas where we don’t have giftings lest we hinder the growth of others. We need to recognize gifts for a mutual benefit and the overall growth of the body.
Keep driving yourself towards growth and development. God expects continued progress and growth in grace and knowledge.
Peace and Unity. Don’t divide, discourage, or put away.
We claim to be Christians, we need to live that example in everything we do, including at the workplace.
1 Corinthians 12:1, 4-
Do a study in the book of Philippians.
1 Peter 2:9
1 Peter 2:9-11 KJV
But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light: Which in time past were not a people, but are now the people of God: which had not obtained mercy, but now have obtained mercy. Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;
