THE PROMISE OF GOD COMES WITH CONDITION.

LET US BE TEMPERATE AND MERCIFUL

OUR STIFF-NECKEDNESS HAS DRIVEN US AWAY FROM GOD.

CHRIST CHOSEN AND BELOVED:
THE MAJOR REASON THAT WE ARE UNABLE TO RECEIVE WHAT WE ASKED IN PRAYERS FROM OUR HEAVENLY FATHER: IS BECAUSE OF OUR REBELLIOUS ATTITUDES OF DISOBEDIENCE.
THE EARS OF GOD ARE NOT HEAVY THAT HE CANNOT HEAR US WHEN WE CALL ON HIM.
1PETER, 3:-12 “FOR THE EYES OF THE LORD ARE OVER THE RIGHTEOUS, AND HIS EARS ARE OPEN TO THEIR PRAYERS: BUT THE FACE OF THE LORD IS AGAINST THEM THAT DO EVIL.”
OUR STUBBORNNESS AND STIFF-NECKEDNESS HAS DRIVEN US AWAY FROM GOD.
THE BOOK OF MATTHEW, 5:-23-24: DEMANDS THAT WE BE AT PEACE WITH OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS BEFORE COMING TO THE ALTAR OF GOD WITH OUR OFFERINGS.
DO WE OBEY?
WE ALWAYS HAVE REASONS FOR OUR WRONG BEHAVIORS,
THE LORD SAYS, “LOVE YOUR ENEMIES, BLESS THEM THAT CURSE YOU, DO GOOD TO THEM THAT HATES YOU AND PRAY FOR THEM WHICH DESPITEFULLY USE YOU AND PERSECUTE YOU.” (MATTHEW, 5;-44)
BUT HOW DO WE REACT TO THAT?
EASIER SAID THAN DONE IS OUR REPLY OR HMMM, I’M STILL WORKING ON THAT ASPECT.
JESUS SAYS, FORGIVE OTHERS THEIR TRESPASSES THAT YOU MAY BE FORGIVEN BY YOUR HEAVENLY FATHER. (MATTHEW, 6:-14-15)
BUT WE HAVE CHOSEN TO TURN DEAF EARS TO WHAT THE LORD REQUIRED OF US, AND CHOOSE TO HAVE OUR OWN SCALES OF MEASUREMENT, IN MEASURING WHO DESERVE TO BE FORGIVEN, AND WHO IS NOT.
LET US OPEN OUR BIBLE AND READ THE STORY OF THE UNFORGIVING SERVANT IN THE BOOK OF MATTHEW, 18:-21-35.
LET US NOT DECEIVE OURSELVES, OUR PERSONAL OPINIONS DOES NOT MATTER WHEN IT COMES TO THE WILL OF GOD.
OBEDIENCE HAS ALWAYS BEEN OUR PROBLEM WITH GOD RIGHT FROM ADAM.
IN CONCLUSION: LET US MAKE PEACE WITH GOD BY BEING OBEDIENT THAT WE MAY ENJOY THE FULFILLMENT OF HIS PROMISES AND THE MANIFESTATION OF HIS COVENANTS.
GOD LOVES US, BUT IT IS OUR SIN THAT SEPARATED US FROM HIS LOVE.
