Text: Romans 2:25-29
Memory verse:
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.”
Isaiah 60 : 1 NKJV
Do you know that the population of the Jews is less than 0.5% of the world population? Do you know that the Jews have consistently made up more than 20% of the Forbes list of the world richest people? These include Larry Elison of Oracle with net worth of about $102.9 billion, Larry Page of Google with net worth of about $85.2 billion, and Sergey Brim of Google with net worth of about 81.8 billion. Do you know that the Jews have consistently made about 30% of the world Nobel Prize winners in science, medicine, engineering, arts, entertainment etc?
Do you think these consistently disproportional Jewish success in all fields of endeavours is coincidental? No. It is the reflection of the covenant that God made with Abraham. God said to Abraham, after entering a covenant with him, “And I will bless her and also give you a son by her; then I will bless her, and she shall be a mother of nations; kings of peoples shall be from her.” (Gen 17 : 16 ) . Did you notice that? Kings of people shall be from her! Another translation puts it this way: “…rulers of people shall issue from her”. A star is a king in his own field; a ruler, a leader.
However, the Jews of today are not those born in the flesh but those born by the Spirit. “For you are not a true Jew just because you were born of Jewish parents or because you have gone through the ceremony of circumcision. No, a true Jew is one whose heart is right with God. True circumcision is not merely obeying the letter of the law; rather, it is a change of heart produced by the Spirit. And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people.” (Rom 2 : 28 – 29 NLT ). This is to say everyone who is born again is a star by inheritance. We are seeds of Abraham by faith, not because we were born in Israel. It doesn’t matter your family gene or history, when you come to Christ to have a new heart, you become Abraham’s seed and heirs according to the promise (Gal 3:29). For in Christ, all the promises of God are fulfilled (2 Cor 1:20).
Friends, God has not only saved you through Christ to prepare you for heaven. Rather, He has changed your inheritance and called you to the top, as kings of people in your chosen field. All creations are earnestly waiting for you to manifest your God-given inheritance. Arise, shine for your light has come!
Prayer points
1. I lose myself from everything holding me backward and preventing me from manifesting my kingship inheritance in my field in Jesus name.
2. Holy Spirit, please, quicken my mental faculties and fill me with wisdom to stand out in the world in Jesus name.
