CHARACTER STUDY: PAUL 107

KEY SCRIPTURE: Acts 28:10 ” Who also honoured us with many honours; and when we departed, they laded us with such things as were necessary”.

Apostle Paul manifested the glory of God on the island of Melita. After Paul had healed Publius father, the bible said the following in verse 9.”  So, when this was done, others also, which had diseases in the island, came, and were cured”.

The scriptures added that after the mass healings, the inhabitants also honored them with many honors. They also put on board the things they needed for their journey. Be mindful of the fact that they had thrown their valuables into the sea when the storm was against them. Now, through the power of the Holy Spirit working in Paul they received such favor that all their valuables that were lost were given back to them. No selfless servant of God shall lack the presence of God that brings solution in times of need.

Apostle Peter asked the Lord.in Mark 10:28 “…Lo   , we have left all, and have followed thee. The following was the Lord’s answer, Mark 10:30 ” But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, with persecutions; and in the world to come eternal life.” The Lord said those who have left all to follow him shall receive a hundredfold of what they left plus persecutions. To serve Christ is to present the news and message that brings liberty to men. Such a man would equally be blessed by those he has served with the good news. The only caution is that no man of God should merchandise the power of God. God’s grace should not be sold for money. This is an abuse of the power of God.

According to the Lord Jesus, true servants of God have a hundredfold of what they have lost. Let’s all be careful about how we attack certain men of God. As a child of God, you may be endangering your own life by doing so. You may not know the degree of sacrifices they have made for God. Attacking them may bring you against God’s anger. Dear child of God if you are a Christian then you may be very cautious about speaking against certain men of God. There are some people whose actions are purely against God’s word and we only relate or talk about their actions in relation to the revealed will of God.

PRAYER

I pray for all true servants of God to lead. Very selfless lives and to be true light to many who are seeking to know the truth. May the Lord also expose every wolf in sheep ”s cloths.
