Jesus Silenced Enemies: Be Watchful and Sensitive

Jesus Silenced Enemies: Be Watchful and Sensitive

The Pharisees and Sadducee surrounded Jesus Christ-like bees seeking every opportunity to bite their host.

The religious enemies set traps and tested Jesus on many grounds with the hope that he might stumble in his speech so that they can arrest and kill Him.

Meanwhile, Jesus was sensitive to recognize the presence of his enemies, and He put them in the right place! When the Pharisees asked a tricky question about the resurrection, Jesus referred them to scripture that everyone in the society respected – and the foes became silent (Luke 20:27-39).

However, Jesus warned his disciples to be watchful of hypocrites who would be envious of their success and seek their downfall. Jesus said,

“Beware of the scribes, who desire to go around in long robes, love greetings in the marketplaces, the best seats in the synagogues, and the best places at feasts, who devour widows’ houses, and for a pretense make long prayers.

These will receive greater condemnation” (Luke 20:46-47 NKJV).

Lesson About Christian Watchfulness

binoculars-1464304-1279x933We Christians are God’s children, and we are lights that are surrounded by people who celebrate the works of darkness; therefore we must be careful!

Our works and godly lifestyles often irritate worldly people, and they would tend to react to whatever we do.

We should be sensitive not to allow evildoers to drag us into their evil practices.

We should not seek world acceptance and sin against God. We Christians must maintain our godly standards and remain heavenly bound.

God will definitely empower us to overcome our adversaries, and he will reward us for every job well done.

Prayer About Christian Watchfulness

weaponDear God, please help me to be wise and be sensitive so that I will not become a victim of wicked people. Help me to abstain from people who may influence me to sin against you.

Empower me to remain steadfast in the faith, and let me keep my godly testimony unto the end so that I can be blessed immensely in heaven.

For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.

Care for the Servant of God

Care for the Servant of God

A servant of God ought to be honored.

Gospel ministers are God’s servants, and they hold a special place in his mind, and everyone ought to consider them special also.

Paul explained the necessity of honoring and catering for the needs of God’s servants and said,

bibleDon’t you know that those who serve in the temple get their food from the temple and that those who serve at the altar share in what is offered on the altar? In the same way, the Lord has commanded that those who preach the gospel should receive their living from the gospel” (1 Corinthians 9:13-14 NIV).

 

 Lesson on Care for the Anointed – Servant of God

preach gospelCourtesy demands that we take good care of God’s servants that labor over our souls. God’s servants pray and fast on our behalves.

They also seek God’s face to properly feed us with the word of God – which is the bread of life.

God’s servants represent God, and we should respect them.

The rule of thumb indicates that whatever honor we give God’s servant is what we technically give to God himself!

Therefore, we believers should utilize every opportunity that we have to minister into the lives of spiritual leaders that we have in our radar.

Remember the main subject:

Every servant of God deserves special honor since he (or she) holds a special place in God’s mind; also, since he may be going out of his ways to represent God and create a positive impact in the lives of others.

Prayer of Grace to Honor God’s Ambassadors – Servants of God

prayerDear God, I understand that gospel ministers are your ambassadors on earth; therefore, give me the grace to honor them. Empower me to do whatever I have in the capacity to minister to their needs, and let me be a source of courage to their families.

I also pray that you give all your servants peace and joy so that they can continue to do your good works for humanity, and for your kingdom.

Again, please give me the strength to honor every servant of God I have around me!

For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
