There’re those who can’t control their temper. Little things infuriate them and make them exhibit such anger that’s unbecoming of a Christian. The only solution for such people is to re-culture themselves with the Word. The Scriptures admonish that you shouldn’t make friends with an angry person, lest you learn his ways. You don’t need anger in your life.
As Christians, we ought to provide a sense of security for one another. I like the idea of living freely among God’s people as the Bible admonishes us to. That’s how it ought to be. You shouldn’t clam up and want to be on your guard always because of some negative reports you heard about others. That’s why it’s important to walk in love, for love always believes the best about others.
In our opening scripture, Peter had ministered the Gospel to a group of people, and rather than give their hearts to Christ, the people wanted to kill him. That’s why it’s important that before you go out to preach, you intercede for the people you’re going to be ministering to; pray that your message will be accepted and won’t just be a witness against them.
Some people believe that they have to suffer and settle for the lesser things in life. They have the notion that poverty is part of God’s will. That’s not true! Poverty, sickness, and defeat have nothing to do with going to heaven!
The New Year is only few days away and I’m sure you’ve had so much to celebrate and be grateful to the Lord for in the outgoing year. Of course, while some are celebrating and testifying about the year, some others may be feeling dejected, wondering why their lives were full of pain and suffering in the outgoing year, and then hoping that in the New Year, things will be different.
Your relevance to the spread of the Gospel of Christ is one of the major reasons God channels prosperity your way. The Bible says there’s more joy in heaven over a sinner that repents than over ninety-nine saints that need no repentance (Luke 15:7) This is about the only time we’re informed in Scripture of something that causes rejoicing amongst the angels in heaven: soul-winning. This lets you know how important soul-winning is.
