TOPIC - PURPOSE OF THE ANOINTING

READ: Numbers 11:16, 17

MEMORISE: So with yourselves, since you are eager for manifestations of the Spirit, strive to excel in building up the church. (1 Corinthians 14:12)


EXPOSITION
It is common to see every ‘dick and harry’ pray for anointing, which is not a bad thing, anyway. Do some of them know the value and the purpose of the power of God that they quest for?

Moses was like a lamp from which 70 others were lighted without losing its brightness and relevance. Anointing is the Spirit and power of God for service. Believers should know that the more Grace and gifts of God upon one's life, the more responsibilities are expected of one (Ezekiel. 34:2-4). The anointing is for the edification, welfare, and progress of the believers, the Body of Christ (Acts 10:38).

The 70 in our text, would be their gifts, assist Moses, help the people solve their problems, and glorify God by their works. If they now had special abilities that they didn't have before, they would also be carrying the people's burden on their shoulders.

However, it is alarming today that leaders of the church who are saddled with the responsibility of caring for the people, now oppress and depress the people with their actions. Nowadays, as churches see their leaders as tin-gods, the way they present themselves coming to the pulpit with pump and pageantry, in fearful, scary regalia, etc.
Remember that anointing is on you for the church to profit, i.e bring many souls to Christ and edify those in the Body (Eph. 4:12,13). So, keep the right attitude and take responsibility for your anointing as you will give account very soon.

PRAYER POINTS
1. Sing prayerfully: “Anointing fall on me (2ce), Let the power of the Holy Ghost fall on me, Anointing Fall on me.”

2. Lord, help me not to misappropriate Your gift upon my life.

3. Father, make believers worldwide to live the life of sacrifice, and not selfishness/self-centredness.

EXTRA READING FOR TODAY: 2 KINGS 25:8-25:30; 1 CHRONICLES 1:1-1:40; JOHN 13:35-14:18
