Fulfil your ministry by Pastor W.F Kumuyi




KEY VERSE: “And he said unto them, I must preach the kingdom of God to other cities also: for therefore am I sent” (Luke 4:43).

TEXT: LUKE 4:33-44

An American hero, Timothy Stackpole, was among the first to reach Ground Zero after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attack on World Trade Centre, New York. He led a team that ran into the second tower to rescue victims after it was struck. When he did, it collapsed and took his life. He knew his calling – to save people.

The story of Stackpole, moving and inspiring as it is cannot be compared with the eternally- rewarding service we have signed up to as believers. Irrespective of the attendant danger that we might face, we must always remember that we have been called to a life of service and like a true soldier depicted in the song, “It pays to serve Jesus,” we must be willing to die at our post.

The exemplary life and ministry of Christ as narrated in our passage shows His total devotion and absolute commitment to healing and deliverance ministry. His exploits in casting out devils and healing the sick spread like wild fire. Soon, the surrounding villages brought their sick to Him and He healed them all. As His popularity grew, the people wanted Him to stay in their community as a miracle worker. But Christ insisted He must travel to other parts of Palestine to preach in fulfilment of His ministry. He refused to be distracted when they wanted Him to become an economic messiah. He refused to be crowned King by the people; instead, he focused on His ministry of preaching to save the world.

The desire to make ends meet has moved many out of their God-appointed ministry to other pursuits in life. This leads to a loss of direction and purpose. We need to return to God’s purpose in life for us. Have you discovered the purpose for your living? Are you willing and ready to pay the price to fulfil that purpose?

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: A purpose-driven life produces amazing results in life and ministry.
