But as the One Who called you is holy, you yourselves also be holy in all your conduct and manner of living. (1 Peter 1:15 AMPC)
If you are a Christian, there’s no need to tell you that the flow of society has been headed in a direction contrary to truth and righteousness. Never has any generation in the history of our nation been so far removed from the heritage of faith that has been passed down through the ages. But, never before has there been a greater opportunity for the Body of Christ to be the glorious Church, operating in the fullness of God’s anointing, to bring in the greatest harvest of souls and wealth that the earth has ever seen.
It’s time to rise up to the high calling of God, and let your Christian walk be a light for this present generation. Many are crying out for role models who are living proof that God is a rewarder of those that diligently seek Him; men and women who succeed based on their integrity, strength of character, and unwillingness to jeopardize all they have worked for because “the pleasures of sin [is] for a season” (Hebrews 11:25).
It is only with God’s help, through the Holy Spirit and God’s anointed Word, that we can rise above the lifestyles of the world to live clean in an unclean world. There is a power at our disposal that is accessible by faith that will undergird us and strengthen us to run this Christian race and make it to the finish line. That power, my friends, is the power of grace.
Dear God, I thank You for giving me Your divine grace and power to live as light in a dark world. I know it is only with Your help that I can accomplish what You’ve given me to do, and I thank You for empowering me to operate in the fullness of Your anointing. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
