Vain Prosperity

I am touched by the sight of people when they depart from the word of God gradually to settle in complex structures that hide them far from the simpleness of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. It is common in churches and Christian settings to find people starting well in the guidance of the Holy Spirit, yet deviating because of some small elements in the church.

I'ld like to make reference to the situation in Acts when the Apostles decide to let the people appoint men who would serve food. This was as a result of complaints about the uneven sharing of food within the grouping. This is how it all starts; i believe it is as a result of a few detractors who have the spirit of 'complaining' to humans rather than asking God to change their situations, if its necessary.

When Jesus Christ was about to be unfairly treated; he did not complain to the Chief Priests or the Disciples, rather, Jesus Christ gave his heart to God and asked God to do what God's will rather than to do what he himself willed. This is the perfect heart for God's purpose.

Today, when we associate; we have embroiled ourselves in complex wordly structures that make some of us 'better' than the others. Love has not been taken to mean anything especially where people ought to think of each other before they themselves feel satisfied.

Brothers and sisters, i'ld advise you to think of meekness in God rather than 'prosperity' on earth. How i hate being 'better' when there is absolute royalty for everyone in Christ. I'ld rather be Royal in heaven than 'better' on earth; humble in heaven that 'richer' on earth. In Jesus Christ's name, Amen!
