17 He that hath pity upon the poor lendeth unto the Lord; and that which he hath given will he pay him again.
Giving to the poor is lending to the Lord. He will repay you for your kindness and mercy. Blessed are the merciful for they will be granted mercy (Mat 5:7)
Heart, tongue and mind are the most important instruments for a man to succeed. How you control them is the key to open heavens. Watch out that they are not masters of your life. We need to ponder before we speak. Will our words or body language edify? What about our thoughts? Whatever our thoughts they attracts. Failures attracts failures and love attracts love. What you sow you harvest.
Reflect on your thoughts today and ponder how you react. If you reacted childishly, you have not yet removed the stale meat from the refrigerator of your soul. What is not flushed out you contaminate the fresh food intake and thus you cannot soar. Empty it so fresh food can be consumed fully that grants you the energy to soar (Isa 40:31).
Spiritual maturity is lacking in the body of Christ causing them to react in outburst of anger and vulgarity. Today what is lacking in churches are spiritual fathers and mothers. Many are searching to fill the need that is lacking in their infancy and childhood. They cannot give to their next generation what they have not received. This is why they have to come to Jesus letting go of their past pain and be healed in His revealed loving presence through a life development program called Father Me. Christian psychologists have concluded that nurture or lack of it blesses or cripples your potential in Christ.
Many today cannot have self control of their habitual emotional sins and keep confronting their problems cyclically. It is time to get rid of the ‘stale meat of the refrigerator of your soul’ so that you can build meaningful relationships with your family and friends God brought to your path. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called sons of God (Mat 5:9).
We cannot on the one hand say we are children of God and on the other hand cause strife in people’s lives. If we want Abrahamic blessings, we must bless all families of this earth with words Jesus often utter ‘PEACE BE WITH YOU.’
If people are too convicted of messages and leave the congregation, remember they didn’t reject us. They have rejected Jesus for messages are written under the inspiration of the Holy spirit and it is God’s word and Jesus says ‘you shall know the truth and the truth will set you free’ (John 8.32).
Commitment to transformation by God’s word set you free. Be transformed by the renewal of the mind (Rom 12:2) from glory to glory (2Cor 3:18).
