FAITH CAPSULE: Responsible for the word of God will provoke the goodness of God.
A choice to be a responsible one does have consequence.
Being responsible is the price of greatness.
When a man chooses to be responsible in response to the word of God is what set to live life for the glory of God.
Jesus frequently and unswervingly communicated humility by His words and His action throughout His ministry on the face of the earth. Jesus’ demonstration of humility is for our learning.
Humility is a choice to be responsible. The word of God pointed out that without humility, obeying the word of God becomes impossible. Philippians 2:8 buttressed, “And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross.” Jesus, our Lord, and savior chose to be humbled and responded with obedience. Jesus’ humbled Himself and became obedient that made Him great for the glory of God.
How responsible are you in the word of God?
Daniel was responsible to attain the price of greatness for the glory of God.
The bible records about Daniel, “But Daniel purposed in his heart that he would not defile himself with the portion of the king’s delicacies, nor with the wine which he drank; therefore he requested of the chief of the eunuchs that he might not defile himself. Now God had brought Daniel into the favor and goodwill of the chief of the eunuchs.”(Daniel 1:8-9) Daniel’s responsibility did not only provoke favor and goodwill of God before the chief of the eunuchs but through all his day of captivity.
Through the life of Daniel, the choice of responsibility was glaring as he avoided wickedness against the covenant. The book of Daniel 11:32 identified for our learning, “Those who do wickedly against the covenant he shall corrupt with flattery; but the people who know their God shall be strong, and carry out great exploits.”
Is wickedness your way that leads to becoming irresponsible?
Do you have the desire to be great for the glory of God?
Without doubt, to be built by the word is a direct route of choosing to become responsible which is the price of greatness. In life, commend to the word of God. Apostle Paul admonished us, “So now, brethren, I commend you to God and to the word of His grace, which is able to build you up and give you an inheritance among all those who are sanctified.” (Acts 20:32)
Be responsible to live life for God’s glory!
Jesus has paid the price, are you doing your part to get to the place He paid for all to be?
From today, be responsible, live life for the glory of God, provoking His goodness over your life.
Prayer for today: Ask from God’s enablement for your life to be responsible in His word.
