Glorious Generation 2 (Sermon Note)
Text: 1 Peter 2:9
Our God is glorious, excellent, beautiful, superb, majestic Exodus 15:11. We are His offspring; His Chosen generation. We must be glorious like Him, in excellence, beauty, radiance, achievements. To achieve this, we must be a generation with vision. We must set goals and achieve them. Proverbs 29:18.
- 1. What is your goal in life?
To answer this, we need to answer some other questions: – Who am I, what is my deepest dream in life. To fulfil my dream, what do I need to do? Why is it important to me? Does God approve of it? How and when should I embark on it? What is the ultimate picture I see in the future? When I attain that ultimate dream, what next? Judges 11:1-10, 1 Chronicles 4:9-10; Proverbs 14:12; Ecclesiastes 11:4.
Biblical example of goal setters are Nehemiah, Paul, Daniel, Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to mention but a few. Nehemiah 2:3-5, Daniel 6;3; Philippians 3:13-14; 2 Corinthians 11:23-33; Acts 20:24, 2 Timothy 4:7-8, Matthew 18:11; John 4:34; John 17:4
- 2. Pitfalls in achieving our goals
Sin, laziness, wrong association and friendship, procrastination, slothfulness and mediocrity. Psalms 1:1-6; Proverbs 21:25; Proverbs 13:20; Romans 6:1; Hebrews 12:1-2.
- 3. To achieve your goals you need valuable people
You need mentors, connectors, grounders, Godly counsellors. Above all you need God’s grace and mercies. Acts 9:26-27; Proverbs 11:14; Jeremiah 33:3; Ephesians 1:17-18.
- 4. Success is not cheap
Success is not cheap neither is it easy. Don’t give up. If you fail, try again. Winners never quit. 2 Corinthians 11:23-33; Phil 4:13; Luke 1:37
We must shine in our generation. In our places of work, in school, in ministry, business, we must shine because we are chosen, we are royalty, we are peculiar, if we shine, then we bring glory to God Who has called us into His marvellous light.
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
