Beyond The Call Of Duty!

Beyond The Call Of Duty!

What a journey it has been in the last few months. Away from the synagogue in a quest to know God personally. To encounter God and have a gospel according to me. The apostles of old had their encounters with Jesus and those encounters became the basis of their witnessing. Having gone through the prestigious academic walls of the RCCG Bible College, I can boldly say that now I know better, I see clearer and should do better.

I am no longer an ordinary Christian but as of today, I have become a normal Christian— A normal Christian in the sense that Heaven has certain expectations of me and I have to look beyond the call of duty.

Now, you may ask, what do I mean by looking beyond the call of duty? When the lion came to attack the flock of sheep, the call of duty required(s) David to run with the other sheep to safety after all he would rather lose one than all, how bad will it be to sacrifice one for the rest but David was looking beyond the call of duty when he went toe to toe with the lion that all be saved. To him, the loss of one was too great a loss to afford and the rest is history.

We've been commissioned to look beyond the call of duty, it is not in our place to take the easy route when we should be limitless in our approach to life and all that pertains to it. It's my unwavering responsibility to look after the lost sheep and lead them home where they are truly destined— Heaven.

I am no longer expected to complain because my pastor shut me up rudely in front of the congregation. I have no excuse for acting ill-mannered because my convictions are different from others however controversial they may seem. I have no right to judge others because grace has found me and they are yet struggling.

While I understand that these may be unsettling, rather than joining the crowd to berate the body of Christ it is my job to get on my knees and intercede for their wrongdoings. It is my responsibility to pray for the brethren who was reeking of alcohol and the one who is struggling with fornication, lies, pride, and anger to name a few. God has not deposited so much in me to complain and to be judgemental. He has not forgiven me all my outrageous sins to act holier than thou rather he has saved me to be an extension of his loving arms as depicted by His outstretched arms on the cross ready to embrace anyone and everyone.

For years, I went about complaining and pinpointing the faults of the church and its pastorate that I forgot that I'm part of it and if the foundation sinks, the whole building comes crashing down. To this end, I admonish us all from today to begin to develop a positive mindset towards the church and the body of Christ as a whole. We are part of the great commission and if the purpose for which the Messiah bled on the cross is defeated, then we've all failed regardless of the part we played.

We can still rescue the injured sheep and nurture it to wholeness. We've spent too much time condemning the church, talking about false prophets and fake pastors forgetting the church has also recorded the testaments of great men and women of God like Pastor E. A Adeboye, Pastor J.T Kalejaiye, and Pastor Joyce Meyer to mention a few doing the kingdom work wholeheartedly as it should be.

This is a call for change to us all, let's imbibe a positive mentality and let go of the barbaric religious culture we breed within our walls. Christ died to save the world and saved us so we can save others, so pick up the mantle and take your place. Remember, we are the light of the world saved to SAVE!

When my pen bleeds, expressions are kept close to my heart, and as it bleeds the words from deep within through my writings, I discover I have created art. I display a piece of my soul. This is my work, my blood, and it should be an object of pride, no matter how much it is criticized or praised.
