MFM Daily Devotional 28 November 2023 MESSAGE

Believers are called to be Christlike. They are supposed to demonstrate Christ’s character, appearance and attitude to the world. They are ambassadors of heaven. They are in the world but not of the world. With their thoughts, speech, actions and appearance, they are to point and lead others to heaven.

Jesus Christ, our Messiah, was born in a manger. He had a very humble approach to everything. People doubted that He was the Messiah to come because of His simplicity. They belittled Him and looked down on Him. What does this teach us? It teaches us the humility of Christ and how He would love us to always appear.

READ MFM Daily Devotional 27 November 2023 – The Strength of A Youth

The world believes in fashion, even some Christians would tell you it is not the appearance but the heart. Anything that begins inside must reflect on the outside. When a person is sick on the inside, it affects the physical appearance of the fellow; the same is true of our spiritual lives. The appearance of Christ was so humble that He had to be betrayed to be identified as the Messiah. He did not look any different from His disciples. Some people would not come to church because they do not want to wear the same shoes or dress or do not have matching shoes for their dress.

Any dressing that attracts the world negatively is not of God. We are sheep amid wolves; we must be set apart and not generalised. God will judge our appearance as well as our hearts. Looking decent and modest to church is very good but it is better always to look godly wherever you go.

Beloved, the pleasures of the world are passing, eternal life is forever. Do not send yourself to hell. Use your appearance to draw others close to God and to lead them to heaven. Be holy within and without. The Lord be with you!
