Powerful message by Pastor Tai Adeshugba: It’s Up To You (Part 4)
On the fourth instalment of our current series “It’s Up to You”, Pastor Tai takes us on a journey of understanding the importance of obedience. Over the past few weeks, we have looked at 1) the entitlement mentality, 2) the treadmill mentality, 3) the independent spirit mentality and lastly, today the obedient mentality.
Using the same scripture as last week, 2 Chronicles 26, Pastor Tai further unravels the tragic story of King Uzziah; a king who started out well but made a mistake that cost him his kingdom, his legacy and ultimately his life. Today we are encouraged to recognise the importance of obedience and humility. In a world that so often tempts us to exalt ourselves, tempts is to depend on the praise and adulation of others, we can find ourselves so steeped in pride that we lose all sense of reverence and humility before God.
Pastor Tai meaningfully weaves together the life and person of Jesus Christ into this story by presenting Him as the perfect example of humility and obedience. Jesus suffered much because of obedience but His reward is that He is now highly exalted in the highest place, seated at God’s right hand.
In the lead up to Easter, it’s impossible for us to ignore the fact that He left His throne up above, took on human form and endured the shame and agony of the cross in complete and utter surrender to the will of the Father, for our sake. His prize? You and I.
