1 Peter 4:11
11 “ If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.”
Today’s Inspiration: Whoever speaks let him speak as it were the utterances of God. Whoever serves let him do so by the strength God supplies so that in all things God maybe glorified through Jesus Christ to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever amen. 1 Peter 4:11. We need to have the mind of Christ to speak out His utterance. Our utterance must be moved by the Holy Spirit spoken from the mouth of God so that good will follow us all the days of our life.
We need to be certain about His calling and His choosing us so that we will not stumble in the faith to facilitate our entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord Jesus Christ, our Lord and savior who abundantly supplies our needs.
We were chosen to be a people for God’s possession purchased of the blood of Jesus to proclaim the excellences of Him who has called us out of darkness to His marvelous light by His mercy. Therefore we should abstain from words of flesh and fleshy lusts which wage war against the soul. 1 Peter 2:11. Excellent moral character attract people to the Kingdom. Seek peace always for those who seek peace and pursue it finds peace. May God’s ears be attentive to your prayer as you live harmoniously in empathy, be kind hearted and humble in the spirit. It’s the godly virtues in us that finds favor from God. God be praised always.
Prayer: Lord guard my lips that my faith be not shipwrecked. May I be sober and vigilant at all times watching carefully the door of my lips so that it brings blessing for others for we were called for this very purpose that we might inherit a blessing. What we sow we will reap in His time. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
1 John 4:18
18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.
Today’s Inspiration: Fear is our greatest enemy and has to be conquered by love for love casts out fear. 1 John 4:18. To nurture the damaged trees of wrong done to us is to be a prisoner of the past. To refuse to forgive is also destructive. Unforgiveness choked the life out of marriage or out of family relationship and friendship. To avoid forgiving would mean imprisoning your emotions.
It costs the Lord Jesus at Cavalry to bring us forgiveness. If we are to bear the image of God we cannot afford not to forgive our offender. Forgiveness carries a condition that it starts with us first to forgive the offender. To accept God’s forgiveness and to refuse to forgive our offenders is a wicked act as Jesus explained in the parable of unforgiven servant in Matthew 18:21-35. When you don’t forgive and you choose to be bitter against the offender, you have made yourself a slave to the offender.
