ROLE MODELS


I greet you all in the name of the almighty God.

A role model is a person who serves as an example , whose behavior is emulated by others.With humility i ask , who is your role model or whose roles do you model your life after ?Is it movie stars or pop stars or celebrities or your parents ,is it a pastor or prophet or Jesus Christ ?
I am not condemning pastors or prophets or men of God but it is important to model our life after our savior(Jesus Christ). It is a shame in today’s world that most of we Christians model our lives after pastors. We want to be like our church pastors and not Jesus – the author and the finisher of our faith. No wonder our pastor’s enemies becomes our enemies even when the so called enemies are true believers. It is a shame that we have turn pastors to our yardsticks for righteousness , if our pastor dresses in a certain way then it is ok to dress in that way, if our pastors talk in certain ways then it is cool to talk that way when the bible says in 1 peter 1:16 ‘be holy for i am holy’ not be holy for pastor is holy.

Some of us do not even check the bible anymore , what ever pastors says is what the bible says when the book of Psalms 119:11 says ‘ your word i have hidden in my heart, that i might not sin against you’ and not the word of pastors. I am sorry to disappoint you but the fact that your pastor dresses in a certain way do not mean it is accepted by God.The fact he or she says things on the pulpit do not mean God has commanded it . The fact that a woman of God wears an high heel shoe,has a fixed nails like an eagle and dresses like she is just coming from a magazine photo shot or a man of God with an earrings do not mean it is right.The bible says in 1 Samuel 16:7 that the lord does not see a man as man sees; for man looks at the outward appearance but the lord looks at the heart. I can imagine whats in the heart of a pastor with earrings ,definitely not to glorify God but glorify himself or pastor with nails like an eagle, i can tell you, its really not easy to hold bible pages with such nails.

I appeal to you friends, Jesus should be our only role models not humans. The only way to be holy is to model ourselves after what the bible says not pastors .Most pastor preach about prosperity, healing, breakthrough , deliverance ,happiness and what God can do but not the condition ,and the condition is be a friend of Jesus. God has the power to do mighty things but for his sons and daughters.Exodus 15:26 says if you diligently heed the voice of God and keep his commandment you will be disease free because he is the only healer. Exodus 19:5- if you keep his commandment you shall be his special treasures.Exodus 23:22-if you obey his words ,your enemies will be his enemies.Matthew 11:28 -come to me , all you who labor and heavy laden and you will find rest for your souls.

If you have not giving your life to Christ , it is not too late .If you have giving your life to Christ but you are still living in sin please make amendments with your creator.

If you have not giving your life to Christ, it’s not too late. He will forgive all your sins, did I hear ALL? Yes all. Once you do so join a living church.

Shalom
