🔥ANCIENT WORDS DEVOTION🔥
Tuesday, May 29, 2018
📜1 Peter 2:12 “Be careful to live properly among your unbelieving neighbors. Then even if they accuse you of doing wrong, they will see your honorable behavior, and they will give honor to God when He judges the world.”
🇮🇱Watch that you do not misrepresent The Kingdom of God. Act as though you are the only ‘Bible’ the people around you will ever read. They will only come to believe in a Gospel that’s already been tried and tested and proven successful.
❓Am I saying that we should live a lie? Certainly not! What I’m trying to say is that we should publicly give God the glory that is due to Him; for who He is and for all that He has done for us, and to privately seek Him for deliverance in the areas we’re still allowing Him to work on.
🗑There’s usually a clothes basket at a hidden corner in your bedroom meant for the dirty clothes and a clothes line right outside your house meant for the laundered clothes.
⚠Having dirty linen accumulate is bad enough; airing this dirty linen out in the open is another horrible story altogether. Deal with your inner heart issues so that you are able to truly live as the Kingdom expects you to. “Dear children, let’s not merely say that we love each other; let us show the Truth by our actions” 1 John 3:18
🤔God in His Sovereignty would have caused Christ to be born on earth and when He was 2 years old, He’d have allowed King Herod’s plan in Matthew 2:16 of killing the Messiah to succeed thus Christ dying for our sins. The reason Jesus Christ stayed a while before ultimately being killed is so that we could have a ‘Master Copy’ to work with. “Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” 1 John 2:6
🚫No situation we face should act as an excuse for us living substandard lives. Approach the Master whenever you face challenges. “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin.” Hebrews 4:15.

🙏🏾Father, forgive us for all the times we have misrepresented Your Kingdom in commission of sin or omission of a thriving existence. Guide us to be Your true ambassadors, in Jesus Name and by the Power of the Holy Spirit, Amen.
