Virgin, Vision And Virtues

Key Verse

“And the same man had four daughters, virgins, which did prophesy.” Acts 21:9

Text — Acts 21:7-9


Spiritually being a virgin is to be clean, unspotted, unstained, holy and without blemish. The goal of our Lord Jesus for His church (believers) is to keep us clean and unpolluted by the world until He comes to take us to heaven.

Our Bible passage is a story of the four daughters of a man called Philip the Evangelist. Paul and his evangelism team stopped over in the house of this Philip the Evangelist at a place called Caesarea. Philip was one of the seven people appointed to take care of the welfare of the early believers. He was a man of good behaviour, honest and full of the Holy Spirit. Philip’s four daughters were pure and fully engaged in the work of God like their father. They used the gift of prophesy given to them to glorify God. They did not join other girls in their community to engage in immoral acts. They brought honour to God and their father as they joined him in doing the workof God.

Every believing child should be holy and dedicate his/her life to serve God. You must not be part of the defilements and corruption in the world. Use your God-given gifts to God’s glory and be an example of a Christian everywhere. Also, you must demonstrate Christian virtues like love, patience, longsuffering, respect for people, faith and prayer. Always join and participate fully in your family devotion.
