SCRIPTURE: In the multitude of people is the king’s honour: but in the want of people is the destruction of the prince. Proverbs 14:28.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: One of the best ways to honour God is to command the submission of multitude to worship Him.
Sometime ago, I was privileged to preach in Lagos at the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG) alongside Papa E. A. Adeboye during an Annual Leadership Conference. I preached on “Church Growth” as a topic.
When I finished preaching, he came and concluded the message. He continuously made references to the things I preached and then said, “We need big churches in the world. How I wished a Church can build a sanctuary of about five hundred thousand capacity and other churches around the world would follow suit and build such mega capacity sanctuaries. Then, the Body of Christ would be the one to decide who should be the president of a country per time, what should happen per time, and how the mayors, governors, ministers should be elected or selected.”
The truth is, if the people of God have enough size, if everyone joins forces together and says that no corrupt person, no killer, no criminal, and nobody with bad or dubious records, etc. can be a leader, it would stand.
Beloved, one of the best ways to honour God is to command the submission of multitudes to worship Him. And if the multitude can follow Jesus to the wilderness, you can compel multitudes anywhere in the world to worship God. Even if you are a business man, you are not permitted to run a dry business. Whatever you do in the Name of God is not permitted to be dry. If you can see one unbeliever with any form of patronage in the same business, it is an insult on the grace you carry if you lack patronage.
My question is, as a church member or worker, what is your part in commanding multitudes to honour of God? Do you win souls for Christ or invite them to Church? You are only truly honourable when your life brings honour to God by the gathering of multitudes to worship Him.
REMEMBER THIS: One of the best ways to honour God is to command the submission of multitudes to worship Him.
- Make up your mind that your life would bring honour to God.
- Win souls for Christ; invite someone to church so they can be blessed and be planted.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to win souls and invite people to church. Let my life bring honour to Your Name, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
