SEEDS OF VICTORY With Apostle Joseph Ziba
Chosen for a Show! – Monday, 19th April, 2021
”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 KJV
The Scripture above has two components. The first part gives a description of your identity in Christ. It says ”…ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people…” And the last part highlights the purpose for that identification, ”….that ye should shew forth the praises of him (God)….”
The word “praises” in the same verse refers to virtues or excellences. The special identity that God gave you is for the showing forth of the virtues and the excellences of Him.
You are planted on the earth for an exhibition of the wonderful deeds of God.
You must understand that as a Christian you are on a mission— you are a missionary Christian. You are planted on the earth for an exhibition of the wonderful deeds of God. You are in that business, at that school, in that career, on that job, in that ministry to display or to show forth the excellences of God. Walk in this conscious every day and always aim to show forth the beauties of God to your world in everything you are doing and the name of Jesus will be glorified.
Glorious Father, in the mighty name of Jesus Christ, thank You for showing me my purpose of existence. I am not here to add to the numbers of people living in this earth. I am a man on a mission. I am here to show forth Your excellences to my world. I will walk in this consciousness every day and the name of Jesus will be glorified in me. Amen!
