“And he said, Whereunto shall we liken the kingdom of God? or with
what comparison shall we compare it?”
“It is like a grain of mustard seed, which, when it is sown in the earth,
is less than all the seeds that be in the earth: “
“But when it is sown, it groweth up, and becometh greater than all herbs,
and shooteth out great branches; so that the fowls of the air may lodge under the shadow of it.”
God’s call on the believer by reason of redemption is not into a religion but into His order of life Jn. 3:15-16. In essence, salvation through Christ Jesus is not about a religion; rather it is giving man the privilege to enjoy God’s kind of life. With this life, the believer is translated to a higher order of life that makes him to become nothing less than a star on the earth Matt. 5:13-16. The reason why many believers don’t experience stardom is because they are yet to understand how to make the supernatural life they have received to deliver. Scriptures show us that dedication is the requirement to make the life in a being to manifest Mk. 4:30-32; Jn. 12:24-25. The life in a seed has the ability to make it become a great tree, but it must be sown into the ground else it will remain a seed.
Therefore, dedication is the key to emerge as a star that the believer is ordained to be in life. Our teachings this week will be focused on studying the bible for evidences to establish this truth. This we shall do by studying the life of characters in the bible that from no background rose as giants; and we shall identify the force behind their rise Heb. 6:12.
Scriptural Examples of Giants who Rose by Dedication.
Abraham was a failure at seventy years, but met with God and from then became sold out to God Isa. 51:1-2. At seventy five when he met God, and was instructed to leave his country and people, Abraham left immediately Gen. 12:1-4. At ninety, God stuck the covenant with Abraham with circumcision as the demand, immediately Abraham did it Gen. 17:10-13,26-27. Again, God demanded for a sacrifice of Isaac his promised son, immediately Abraham went to carry it out Gen. 22:1-18. This is Abraham following God dedicatedly; at the end he emerged a ‘trans-generational giant’ Gen. 24:1; Gal. 3:13-14.
Dedication is not a gift that is imparted; it is a choice individuals make and gets committed to. Dedication places a demand on men, but the outcome of it surpasses the demand. I see help by the Holy Spirit for dedication come upon you now.
