LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORS AS YOURSELF

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBORS AS YOURSELF

Are Christians allowed to segregate?

Our Lord Jesus commands us to love our neighbors as ourselves. Christian is expected to love all people equally and avoid segregation.

Believers must understand that it is sinful to give preferential treatment to anyone.

We must not specifically favor anyone (or a group of people) at the expense of others. God requires that his worshipers desist from segregation and treat all people equally.

The scripture stated,

“If you really fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself,” you do well; but if you show partiality, you commit sin, and are convicted by the law as transgressors” (James 2:8-9).

 

A Child of God to Avoid Segregation

A person who gives preferential treatment is an unjust person, and he would suffer consequences of his action from God if he (or she) does not repent.

God’s children must love all people and treat them equally – Without partiality.

No Christian is allowed to favor the rich at the expense of the poor. Also, a follower of Jesus Christ must not respect influential people and look down on common people.

A good Christian must learn from God who cares for all people equally.

No iota of partiality is with God! He sends rain in its season to benefit all people. God waters the whole earth to bring out its products for everyone’s consumption.

In addition, believers must learn from Jesus Christ who demonstrated unbiased love to people of his time (while on earth).

He walked around the town doing good to all people without an element of partiality. Jesus even went out of his way to care for people that were rejected by society. The Son of God fed poor people and gave hope to the hopeless!

Any Christian who violates the rule of openness and unbiased love will suffer consequences of his action – irrespective of his religious title and/or affiliation.

Every believer must have the mind of Jesus Christ. We must serve God with humility and truly represent Christ. Our openness and sincere interaction will preach better sermons than our speeches.

Children of God ought to pray for God’s grace to practice true love that glorifies Christ.

Believers from all walks of life should read their Bible and practice the teachings of Jesus Christ to the letter!

Our faithful services to Jesus Christ will motivate other people to come closer and receive his salvation. Also, our faithful services will result in our blessings!

Please pray for the grace to treat all people equally

Dear God, please give me the grace to treat all people equally. Help me to desist from giving preferential treatment to anyone, so that I will not sin against you!

I ask for strength to treat people with respect and love. Let my actions motivate other people to receive your salvation.

Also, let my honest services transform to my blessing. For in the name of Jesus Christ I have prayed. Amen.

Believers To Present Honest Service To God

Believers To Present Honest Service To God

Honest service means a lot to God. He reigns over the earth, and all people ought to honor him. People of different classes and status should submit before the Creator since he is the highest being in existence.

All people ought to submit before God and serve him with full devotion.

Jehovah is God; he is supreme and has dominion over all things. Humanity has no choice than to serve him. Our services to the Creator would be regarded to as “a show of commitment” to him.

prayerAll people must aspire to satisfy God with good worship. We must ensure that our worships are authentic before him. That is, our services must be void of lip service or eye service.

Christians must ensure that whatever service we offer to God comes from a plain and honest mind – Thorough service.

Anyone can be tempted to consider himself (or herself) as indispensable or consider his offering to be overly significant. No good believer should entertain such thought! A good Christian must not consider his spiritual activities to be too important before God.

God does not need our services to survive. He doesn’t feed on anyone’s gratuity other than to accept it as a show of an appreciation for his benefits rendered.

God desires our worship so that he can turn it to our avenue of blessing. God will bless us if we thoroughly worship him

To bring effective service to God’s satisfaction, each believer need to evaluate whatever effort that he or she makes. Every Christian must check to see that nothing bias or selfish is consists in his services.

That is,

  1. No one should be deceived to think that he/she is indispensable before God.
  2. No one should think that his/her services are good enough to sustain God.
  3. Any service that a believer presents to God must come from a pure heart of humility.

God needs none of our services to fulfill his mandate in any given situation. God declares in the Bible,

“If I were hungry, I would not tell you, for the world and its fullness are mine. Do I eat the flesh of bulls or drink the blood of goats? Offer to God a sacrifice of thanksgiving, and perform your vows to the Most High, and call upon me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify me” (Psalm 50:12-15 NKJV).

 

questionWhy Should People Present Honest Service To God?

There are many reasons why humanity must honor God and bring him honest services.

    • Firstly, he is God and we are human. He is above and we are beneath!

 

    • God furnishes us with many great things freely at his own expense. We don’t pay him royalty for the air that we breathe.

 

    • He gives us rainfall and sunshine freely.

 

    • He provided us health care that no mortal person can boast of.

 

  • He chooses not to make our health affordable, but free!

The list of God’s goodness to humanity is endless. Anyone who subjects himself to good thought will realize multiple benefits that he can appreciate him for.

In conclusion,

Don’t Be An Ingrate: Offer True Worship To God

All people (especially Christians) ought to reverence God and give him thorough worship at all times. It is important that each Christian makes his or her services to God come from a devoted heart.

Whatever anyone considers good worship must be void of pride, selfishness, and grudges.

Almighty God desires perfect worship from you!

 

    • Ensure your attitude supports your motive whenever you come before God to offer your appreciation.

 

    • Don’t be reluctant. Don’t come under impulses – Be free and happy!

 

  • Your article presented must not be with fake impression or bias mind. Be honest with your article – Whether it is money, material, or any other.

Quality and Quantity Matter To God!

Christians should not only give their best to God, but we must offer them in abundance.

Christian must make God feel the importance of our actions. We must ensure they are genuine before him. Quality and quantity are important to God. That is, our presentations before God must be with quality offerings, and they must be presented in quantities.

Solomon offered several thousands of sacrifices to God. (1 Kings 8:63).

prayerPrayer Of Grace To Dignify God With True Service

Dear God, I ask you to please give me grace to serve you with fear and dignity.

Let my services be presented before you with simplicity of heart, and with humility. Help me to focus on faithful activities that will glorify your Holy Name.

Please let my offerings be acceptable to you, and bless me. Most importantly, please establish my feet in your presence to keep faithfully serving you, so that I can remain fit for your kingdom.

Please keep me worthy for your eternal kingdom O Lord!

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

GOD DESIRES OFFERING FROM A WILLFUL HEART

GOD DESIRES OFFERING FROM A WILLFUL HEART

bible devotion

God expects his children to present their offerings to him from willful hearts. The Creator is only interested in offerings that are presented to him from liberal hearts.

He is not interested in receiving anything that comes from a grudging heart!

The scripture stated,

“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. 

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:6-8 NKJV).

Lesson on Offerings of Willful Hearts

God will reward people based on the amount of sacrifices that they present unto him.

Since he reserves the storehouses of blessing, the Creator will plentifully reward people who offer him tangible offerings.

Jehovah will sparingly reward people that hold back their resources from him.

Anyone who expects huge blessing from God should learn how to offer his or her plentiful sacrifices to God – without reservation.

Please do these things and many more. For in the name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.
