Given To Service by Pastor Faith Oyedepo
Topic: Given To Service
“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:” – 1 Peter 2:9
As a minister’s wife, you are peculiar- very important, special, unusual, positively strange, and uniquely favoured by God. You occupy a very distinct position and have been given the grace to carry out effectively your task as assigned by God. You should know that God does not make mistakes and for every position He places you, you have been endowed with divine capacity to function maximally.
However, many times, we may feel that we have put in too much and have reaped little, or that people don’t appreciate the effort we are putting into this wonderful office given to us. Some might even think they are not accorded the same respect as their husbands, despite all their efforts in Kingdom service. You should know that you are not called into a competition, neither are you there to outdo another.
Your calling is by divine privilege, and you have been called to service. Being a minister’s wife is service and Jesus said: “There is no man that has truly given up everything that would not gain much more in eternity.” So, don’t be afraid to give your all and your best in promoting God’s Kingdom.
Remember, everyone will be rewarded according to her labour. Therefore, labour abundantly in the Word, in prayers, in giving, evangelism, and every form of service as you are called to per time. Watch how God increases you mightily. You will not miss your rewards in the name of Jesus!
For you to render an acceptable service to God, you have to build a stable relationship with Him, seek to make Jesus the Lord over the affairs of your life and accept Him as the Saviour of your life. If you have made this decision say this prayer with me in faith:
Dear Lord Jesus Christ, I come to You today. I am a sinner. Forgive me my sins and cleanse me with Your Blood. I accept You as my Lord and personal Saviour. Make me a child of God today. Thank You for delivering me from sin and satan to serve the living God and thank You for accepting me into Your Kingdom.
Congratulations! If you prayed this simple prayer of faith with me, you are now born again and a child of God. He loves you and will never leave you. Read your Bible daily, obey God’s Word and seek Christian fellowship (John 14:21).
With this, you are guaranteed all-round rest and peace in Jesus’ Name! Call or write to share your testimonies with me through firstname.lastname@example.org, 07026385437 OR 08141320204.
