Topic: BECOMING HONOURABLE IN THE FAITH

Text: 1 Chronicles 4:9

📖9….”And Jabez was more honourable than his brethren: and his mother called his name Jabez, saying, Because I bare him with sorrow.”

Message:

🔥The life of a believer, is that of thriving to become honourable in God’s sight. This was depicted by gospel followers in Acts 17:11. Apostle Paul had been driven from Thessalonica to Berea by the Jews because of the gospel. But when he preached in Berea, the reception of the word of God turned believers there noble, because they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures whether those things were so. Dr Luke who wrote the Acts of the Apostles called the Berean believers noble and honourable in Acts 17:11 and 12 respectively because they were hearers, searchers (John 5:39) and doers (James 1:22) of the Word.

🔥🔥The reason people want to be blessed or empowered to prosper, is to be honoured. The reason people want to have their coast or life enlarged is to receive honour. Same with people asking for God’s hand to be upon them, and those who want evil driven away from them; they are all pursuing honour as Jabez pursued and received, so they can open the door of success.

🔥🔥🔥An honourable life is a life that gives light to others. It is an achievement that, though one person has suffered to acquire, yet the result is shared and enjoyed by many who never contributed to it. Jabez suffered to pray and probably fasted, but when the result came, both scribes and Rechabites (Jer 35:1-19), enjoyed it in 1 Chro 2:55. Child of destiny, learn never to be naive by struggling to live for “ME, I and MYSELF” alone in life. The grace we are enjoying today was purchased by Jesus Christ with his own blood, yet he sent it to us ten days after ascending into heaven. Let any one that encounters you, receive a blessing from you.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Heavenly father, let my works in the Church produce honour to your name, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏Omnipotent father change my story as you changed Jabez’s story when he came to you, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Oh Lord, as you honour and delight in me, use my life to light the paths of others, in Jesus’ name.
