“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God” (Hebrews 12:2).Text — Hebrews 12:1-3
We are living in the world that Satan has polluted with all kinds of evil. His goal is to debar all living souls from going to heaven since his doom has been sealed by the Almighty God for his rebellion. Satan’s intention is to prevent sinners from forsaking their sins. For the saints, he can use anything or anybody to lure them back to sin. That’s why today Satan is deceiving many youths to take his inspired pop singers, fraudsters, immoral celebrities and commercial preachers to be their role models and idols.
The reading text makes it clear that the faultless and sinless Son of God remains the perfect example and role model that all believers should aspire to follow His footsteps if they want to overcome Satan and sin like the triumphant saints. If their character, comportment, conversation, communion and companionship are modeled after Christ, they will be sure of victory over sin and entry into His glory. Jesus was Apostle Paul’s model. Who is your model? Who are you patterning your life after?
Who is your role model?
Jesus is the perfect role model for all.
Prayer for today
