1 Corinthians 15:33 reminds us of a basic truth we must have heard many times growing up and one that we repeat to younger people frequently. In view of the fact that eternal life is a reality for Christians, we should be careful to live in a manner that helps […]
In Genesis 4:8-9, a pertinent question is raised about our responsibility to others. Are we our brother’s keeper? The Lord knew what Cain had done and wanted to see his reaction to the question posed. Cain’s response and God’s answer point to the expectation. Yes, we should look out for […]
We ought to pray for Israel and to support her in any way we can. If we do the opposite, we shall attract judgment from God like Joel prophesied in Joel 3:1-12. As we think about this, we should ask God how best we can do it.
Let us also remain faithful in our service to God, for as we do so, we will serve humanity. This may come at a price as mentioned in Daniel 11:31-34 in a prophecy he received. Let us remain steadfast in our faith.
In Luke 7:1-10, we see how much a Roman soldier loved his neighbours. He went to so much trouble to help his servant and even served the Jews who were his subjects (vs 5). His love for others earned him a miracle and a compliment from Jesus.
May the Lord open our eyes to see what He would like us to do for our neighbours. May He speak so clearly about it. May we hear and trust Him enough to obey what He says. Paul raised support for the poor in Jerusalem. 1 Corinthians 16:1-4.
Very significant things may occur during our time of moulding. Job is a good example of this. He persevered during his tribulations and got a deeper understanding of who God is. In Job 2:9 he was even tempted to curse God and die, but he refrained. He questioned his friends […]
Even in discomfort, let us endeavour to live for Christ like Paul did in Philippians 1:20-26. The reason for this is that we don’t exist for ourselves only. Paul was ready to die for His faith, but he also knew that his work was not completed. He needed to be […]
Trouble can also discourage us from seeking God. Let us determine, that it will push us towards Him, not away from Him. I know that the magnitude of some challenges is huge, but let us still trust in God. May Psalm 118 be an encouragement to those facing difficult times.
To hear what God is saying, we need to focus on Him and to shut out distractions that threaten to sidetrack our faith. Being too busy to meditate on His word and allowing ourselves to fall for false teachings are dangerous to our growth in our faith in God. 2 […]
