Bible Reading: 1Thes. 4:10-15
And that ye study to be quiet, and to do your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you.
There are more of positional leaders to creative one in the body of Christ and society today which stagnate growth and development in the society and in all expected part of the world, such individual further his/ her educations to get more recognition and respected title in the society.
They are everywhere, among our universities professors, among the pastors because they believed with higher qualification they will be privilege to a better position in their respective secular and priesthood offices, this hypnotized the younger generation and their focus toward doing productive thing and follow their vision, purpose and dreams getting weaker per time. Many vibrant youths of this generation are given lesser to productivity because of this singular fact.
But it was not so to Paul in his time; he was not among the twelve disciples during the earthy ministry of the Lord Jesus Christ but was an outstanding till date, there is no nation today that his work through the scripture will not be quoted.
He trained and drilled himself to be productively relevant in his generation and he does. Regardless of the fact that he was mentored and schooled by one of the professor of law of his time, he also took precious and reasonable decision to invest his time in the most precious things of life that boosted his productivity and creativity.
He was not a figure head-leaders like we have more in this generation even among the youths; he wrote larger numbers of books among the disciples with fact and spiritual nourishment.
Nigeria as at today is having more that thirty thousands professors without one brilliants thesis on how to solve the problem of unemployment through reformed strategy by our Economic Professors; thousands as Doctors of Theology and Social Ethics which several are privilege to be Pastor, Reverend and Bishop with lesser community impartation but it was not so with Apostle Paul.
Without the help of Holy Spirit the rest Apostles won’t have being relevant, they will be totally silent and Christ had foreseen all this terrible predicament before now. Several numbers of Pastors have Bible in different translations and books that matter to the course studying now to be promoted to higher post.
Thank God for great mentors we are privilege to in this generation somebody like Bishop Oyedepo, Pastor Sam Adeyemi, John Maxwell, Andrew Murray (Late), Rev. Hagin, Pastor Poju, Pastor Mathew Ashimolowo, Pastor E.A Adeboye and some other few ones that are really making visible, economic and societal changes through their respective offices.
Apostle Paul you are fun of quoting does not live his life like a frame of picture but a world changer through his works and Epistles.
Please be productive.
Let Us Pray.
1. Thank you oh Lord for your impartation in the church daily.
2. Oh lord, help me to be more productive and be more creative in solving problems in my generation.
