A FAITHFUL DISCIPLE

SOUL-LIFT DAILY DEVOTIONAL WITH DR D.M. TIKILI.

DATE: FRIDAY, APRIL 23 2021.

TOPIC: A FAITHFUL DISCIPLE

DEVOTIONAL READING: Philip 2

KEY VERSE: Because for the work of Christ he was nigh unto death, not regarding his life, to supply your lack of service toward me. (Philip 2:30)

BIBLE CHARACTER IN VIEW: EPAPHRODITUS

When the Christians to Philippi heard about Paul’s imprisonment, the news must have been especially significant to them.

They surely remembered Paul’s brief stay in their own city jail, when a midnight song worship had concluded with an earthquake that cracked the prison open. They decided to say thanks by sending Epaphroditus to help Paul.

Epaphroditus arrived in Rome bringing gifts from the Philippians. Unfortunately, he soon became very sick and almost died. Word got back to Philippi of his illness, and that fact distressed Epaphroditus. He may have felt that his mission had failed. But Paul saw matters differently. He was deeply thankful for Epaphroditus’ visit and urged the Philippians to welcome him home with joy.

Our plans don’t always match GOD’s objectives. Epaphroditus wasn’t able to accomplish all he set out to do. But his effort had cheered Paul, who described the gifts he received as a fragrant offering.

THOUGHT FOR THE Day: Faithful Disciples Allow God To Determine How And When They Will Serve
