A VITAL ASSET TO THE CHURCH
Acts 6 vs
3.■”Therefore, brethren, seek out from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business.”~《NKJV》
AS the disciples multiplied in the days of the Apostles, there was the need for effective administration and ministration of the church. So they appointed seven men who would attend to serving at tables and superintending the distribution of food. However, those men to serve were to have certain qualities. They said “Select out from among yourselves, brethren, seven men of good and attested character and repute, full of the [Holy] Spirit and wisdom, whom we may assign to look after this business and duty”.
Did you notice that? They were among the brethren, not the Apostles, pastors or leaders but they should be of good character, full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. So if you are a 21st Century Christian and you think it’s only your pastor or prophet who should be of good character and full of the Spirit and wisdom, then you are doing yourself a great disservice.* Besides, they were to serve at tables, nevertheless they should have these qualities. The church then was truly a spiritual church even in the election of departmental leaders. Beloved, the Apostles were not looking for “empty vessels”. There were looking for YIELDED VESSELS, who are vital assets to the kingdom of Christ.
Cherished one, you can choose to be a person of good reputation, full of wisdom and the Spirit. And through this, you will become a giant asset for the kingdom of God and a threat to the forces of darkness. Don’t live like a “normal Christian” who is not yearning for any greater dimension of the Spirit. There is more to Christianity than just going to church. Choose to be equipped and empowered for the kingdom with godly character, wisdom and the Spirit. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Omnipotent Father, thank You for Your inspiration which is able to build me up. Father I humbly yield my whole life to you to use me as Your asset of blessing to Your kingdom. Continue to fill me with your character, wisdom and Spirit in Jesus Name. Amen!
