Cutie pie

1 Thessalonians 1: Thanksgiving for These Believers - 6 You also became imitators of us and of the Lord, having received the word in much tribulation with the joy of the Holy Spirit..”

The above scripture talks about the believers of the church of the Thessalonians, I preached on this chapter yesterday, June 26, which you can watch by clicking the link below:


God is not going to forget your labor, after the sufferings in the city of Philippines where Paul and Silas were beaten mercilessly,  Paul after his release crossed over and went to the city of   Thessalonica and started a church there, the above scripture talks about these new converts who accepted the Lord Jesus Christ in the midst of afflictions and trials. Nothing brings more happiness than to see believers walking in faith, love and hope, anybody listening?  Not disobedient, arrogant, rebellious, proud believers who just listen and are not doers of the Word of God.  The great qualities in the new converts of the church of Thessalonica just bowled me over and I wondered ‘what if all the churches are like the above church, then there would be revival in the world and we would be able to bring more people to Christ.’ Please listen friends, we are in the last days and the main agenda in our life should be to share Jesus with our friends, family , relatives, neighbors and our  colleagues, are you doing that? Your promotion, increment and blessings is not for you to accumulate more and more property but it is to invest and sow for the expansion of God’s Kingdom.    The church of Thessalonica became an example to all the believers in Macedonia and in Achaia.(verse 7) How is your life this morning?

God is looking for change in our life, attitude and behavior, it is not all about calling ourselves as Christians but it should reflect in our daily life.  We got to tell people about Jesus ….this job is not just for preachers but for all of us. The church of Thessalonica instantly obeyed and were an aroma of Christ!

I would like to share a testimony and conclude this devotion.  A muslim girl Ayesha, 8 years old, very poor background., came for admission to our Abide School. She had not even finished her nursery so I was wondering where I would accommodate this big girl in the school; however, I took her out of compassion . On day one during lunch I found her messing up her hands and plate while eating, so I gently advised her how she has to eat and also keep her plate clean. The next day while she was eating, I was amazed to see her follow my instructions 100% and eat neatly, besides she was also well behaved in the class. She became my cutie pie, when leaders watch obedience they are thrilled.  Likewise, when God watches your obedience, He would be super-excited and He would bless you beyond measure, we need to become His Cutie-pie,  anybody listening to me.

Deuteronomy 28: 1 "Now it shall be, if you diligently obey the LORD your God, being careful to do all His commandments which I command you today, the LORD your God will set you high above all the nations of the earth.
