A Holy Addiction
I don’t know that I have heard very often of addictions in a positive sense, but the Bible tells us of Stephanus, a man who had a holy addiction:
“I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints,) ” ― 1Co. 16:15
Stephanus was addicted to the ministry of the saints. I wish that everyone of us had this addiction. Before Jesus entered upon his lifework as a minister, even as a child, we read,
“Jesus was the fountain of healing mercy for the world; and through all those secluded years at Nazareth, His life flowed out in currents of sympathy and tenderness. The aged, the sorrowing, and the sin-burdened, the children at play in their innocent joy, the little creatures of the groves, the patient beasts of burden,--all were happier for His presence. He whose word of power upheld the worlds would stoop to relieve a wounded bird. There was nothing beneath His notice, nothing to which He disdained to minister.” ― The Desire of Ages, p. 74.1
The keynote of his life is aptly expressed in his words to his parents at His first Passover visit; “wist ye not that I must be about my Father's business?” Dear friend, won’t you make this the keynote of your life too?
