Text: Genesis 10:8-10
KEY TEXT: “He was a mighty hunter before the LORD: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the LORD.” GENESIS 10:9 (KJV)
The birth of Nimrod was not just a wasteful one. Though he was not announced as a special one, yet he became mighty before the Lord.
How great it is to be said of a man like this. Nimrod born in the earth, became earthy and was mighty in the earth. His mightiness could be felt as he dominates and has his kingdom beginning from Babel.
Much more, Nimrod was not only great, he made use of his strength to hunt not just before man, but before God; he was a mighty hunter before the Lord.
Like Nimrod, God expects that we whom He has begotten in the Spirit to be mighty. Our birth into the Spirit must be matched with might in the Spirit.
Furthermore, as Nimrod did hunt, even so must we hunt for the Lord; hunting the lost souls into the kingdom of God, taking the kingdoms of Christ to reign in every land and heart.
And when we have done all, we are sure of eternal recognition. Nimrod, an earthly man had a recognition on the earth and was short-lived, but for God’s people, heavenly and eternal recognition shall be theirs. Be God’s Nimrod.
In his field of expertise – his profession he was known to be for the Lord. Do you drop your Christian profession (affirming to be a Christian) for the circular profession? Are you only a child of God in church but in every other place, you “blend” with the flow?
Dear Christian professional, be a Christian in all season, at work, market, field, home, …, everywhere! But about that day or hour no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father (Mathew 24:36). His return could be when you are at work. Would you be found as God’s at that time???
REFLECTION FOR THE DAY: Never allow your birth to be without any record with God!
O can we say we are ready, brother?
Ready for the soul’s bright home?
Say, will He find you and me still watching,
Waiting, watching when the Lord shall come?
