Today Reminder - 14 May 2012 (Slave)

My prayer for you for today is that you will live a godly life devoted to God, in Jesus name. 

Titus 1:1-2
This letter is from Paul, a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. I have been sent to proclaim faith to those God has chosen and to teach them to know the truth that shows them how to live godly lives. This truth gives them confidence that they have eternal life, which God—who does not lie—promised them before the world began.

Slave - a slave of God and an apostle of Jesus Christ. When I read this opening to Titus this morning I couldn’t help to have the “Wow” thought (Once again). At first when you read Paul stating that he is a slave of God you think that this is a little inappropriate, but the Holy Spirit passed the image through my mind of a slave. A slave is loyal to his master doing his every request with no complaint and never questioning the authority of his master. A slave is fully and completely devoted to his master and his work. And then Paul adds on “and an apostle of Jesus Christ.” 

My dear friend there is something in this that we should take very serious in our reminder today. If you are a slave to God you will never do anything to anger Him or embarrass Him. You will seek to do His will and obey His commands. You will work for Him with a joyful heart and never complain and always with contentment. And above that you are an apostle of Jesus Christ who must proclaim the truth to all that God chose and teach them this truth that will show them how to live a godly life. This truth will give people confidence that they have eternal life which God promised to all that believe. 

So today I remind you to be a slave, a slave of God and to live for Jesus. Have an amazing day dear slave of God.
