Be A Standard Bearer

May 13, 2022 | Weekly Teachings

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves,… 2 Tim 3:1-2a.

As we gallop towards the end of time, a major prophetic signal is the rise of the spirit of selfishness. Men are now driven by what suits only them or what they want. This has led to the trampling of other people’s emotions, rights and privileges and has given rise to a lot of hurting people all around us. A hurting people sees the world in the light of their experiences. A hurting person can never be a good helper. A bleeding person can rarely be a healing balm to another. A hurting person is a potential tool of hurt for the devil. (A case study of the Nigerian political and ecclesiastical society)

As the society degenerate further into egocentrism, let the narrative change with you. Be a STANDARD BEARER.

Forget what they did to you, change the standard when dealing with others. If you repeat a mistake done to you on others then you learnt nothing from it. The reason God allows us go through things is so we can change it for those coming behind us. Let a good standard begin or continue with you.

Always remember, God is a record keeper and a handsome rewarder. He will reward your selfishness towards others and the kingdom.
