Dear prayer cell leaders, no one should cancel a cell without contacting the District Leader or Zone Pastor. We are in a healthy place, therefore we must be highly disciplined and work within our systems. Thank you.
Last week's question, What will be the centre of my life?
This week, What will be the character of my life?
God is far more interested in what you are than what you do!
Remember you will take your character into eternity, not your career or ministry.
This is the question of discipleship. What kind of people will you be?
Make a list of the character qualities you want to work on and develop in your life. You might want to begin with the fruit of the Spirit... Galatians 5:22-23. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.
I observe people who are highly temperamental, they think being loud and overbearing intimates or bring fear for others to agree with them. Godly character makes you talk in meekness, wisdom and skillful understanding. Long ago I refused to submit to controlling spirits.
Peter said, 2 Peter 1:5-9. And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity. For if these things be in you, and abound, they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. But he that lacketh these things is blind, and cannot see afar off, and hath forgotten that he was purged from his old sins.
Do not get discouraged and give up when you stumble or fall. It takes a lifetime to build Christlike character. The fact must be that you are progressively growing and developing your character by godly disciplines and the Word of God.
Character is more important than your gifts, talents and possessions. Today, people are compromising godly values and selling their birthright for a pot of porridge, like Esau. Soberness must be within us to seek godly disciplines and develop the characteristics of Christlikeness. Simple issues like speaking the truth, keeping your word & promises, paying your bills on time or giving an apology if it is not paid, such like issues determine your character. Money is a huge issue that defines peoples character today.
1 Timothy 4:16
Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.
An ungodly character can destroy you and your genealogy, which is your lineage. A godly character will blessed you and all your lineage will be blessed by your obedience to God.
1. Ask The Lord to show us any weaknesses in our character.
2. Let us seek him to strengthen and develop godly character.
3. Plead with The Lord to daily guide and lead us.
