Introduce yourself, who are you?
Ecclesiastes 1:1 -
The words of the Preacher, the son of David, king in Jerusalem.
King Solomon was one of the most famous kings not only during his time but even today, the general people know of him as being the most richest kings and one blessed with a lot of wisdom. People still talk about Solomon gold and Solomon wisdom. Yet when it came to introduce himself King Solomon firstly introduces himself not as king but as a preacher, his relationship or position in the Kingdom of God first, then his position as son of David (due to which he got blessed in all things) and lastly as the world sees him; a king.
When we are asked to introduce ourselves what do we speak about first, what we have achieved in this flesh, our positions in the worldly companies where we work, our educational degrees?
If today we are made to stand and introduce ourselves are we in a position to open our mouth and state that we do exist? If so as what? In God's Kingdom do we have a position or are we zero?
[ Prayer Starter ]
Lord God, You have created us not to become something in this temporary world of vanity, but to achieve greatest in your Kingdom which exists forever. You have empowered each one of us for excellence but since we are blind we cannot see ourselves and know ourselves. It is only in You that we can see how great You have made us. Lord, open the eyes of each one of us and by your Spirit uncover the precious us...
We make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
