Daily Words of Encouragement
By Priest Knight Scopas Juma Kamonde
Our Verse of Today (21/11/2017)
“Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel.” (Philippians 1: 27)
The Title of Our Today’s Topic: Stand Firm to Fight Well
The previous verse was addressed by Apostle Paul to the Christians of Philippi as part of his message to them.
From our verse of today we can learn these very important and valuable points:
1. Apostle Paul wanted the Christians of Philippi to live according to the gospel of Christ throughout their life in all circumstances or conditions.
2. He had urged them to root their life in spirit so that they could be spirit led Christians.
3. He had encouraged them in order to live in unity as one body of Jesus Christ so that they could be able to fight the kingdom of Devil perfectly.
My dear fellow Christians in general and Churches’ leaders in particular, as we do live in a corrupted world we should show out the goodness of the gospel of Christ through our life. Moreover, we should be spirit led Christians as well as live in unity as one body of Jesus Christ so that we can overcome the world perfectly and not to be overcome by the world shamefully.
