The most anticipated boxing bout tagged the ‘Fight of the Century’ came alive on May 2 with two tough contenders for the ultimate price.
It was a fight to finish between the Philippines congress man, Manny Pacquiao and American boxer, Floyd Mayweather Jr. This particular fight had been anticipated by the public since 2009. However due to disagreements between the contenders it was never to be. In the end, 38-year-old American, Floyd Mayweather Jr. won the bout.
Since then, the world has not stopped analyzing the match. This Month of May, the word unto God’s people requires we stand out from the crowd of spectators and competitors. Mayweather’s champion status was not to be until the bold step taken to outdo his major rival.
An Outstanding Champion status is only confirmed on those whose characteristics carry the extraordinary. “Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.” (2 Cor. 6:17).
What then still makes this separation process lacking in our pilgrim’s journey? Why do we still enjoy partaking in the portion of this world? Hear this: “I have given them thy word and the world hath hated them because they are not of the world even as I am not of the world. “(John 17:14)
Our entrance into DIVINE FATHERHOOD (2 Cor 6:18) where Fellowship with the Father is unlimited is situated in the Separation Process. This process is not found wanting in the lives of outstanding champions having a swell time in God’s presence.
Do you still desire to remain at a spot turning in circles as regards your walk with God? You should not be comfortable in combining both serving God and the world (mammon). “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” (Matt. 6:24). If Daniel could be outstanding even in a strange land, who says you can’t go through the university and world unscathed?
Joseph was in a strange land. He was stuffed with the juicy position that could ever be imaged. His name was changed to Zaphnath-paaneah (Gen 41:45). A beautiful heartthrob named Asenath was bestowed unto him.
Yet, he remained Outstanding. He purposed never to be soiled. Have you let the children of this world to soil your integrity and faith? Have you let the world water down your dignity and worth?
Definitely A NEW DAWN IS HERE! You CAN be DIFFERENT from the lot. So therefore: “ Let us live soberly, righteously and godly, in this present world” (Tit. 2:12b).
