LIKE MOSES Set And Lock: Colossians 3:1-2
Monday, June 14, 2021
Moses "refused to be called the son of Pharaoh's daughter, CHOOSING rather to suffer affliction with the people of God, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season; esteeming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt: for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward" (Hebrews 11:24-26).
There is a reverberating message today for all in the body of Christ, the church. It is the word COURAGE. We can profess our faith, but when it is tested by things—situations, circumstances, and events—we do not like or seem unpleasant, we make excuses. They neither fit nor comply with our plans, our lifestyle (Matthew 22:4-5).
I am certain Peter did not realize the spiritual impact of his words in Matthew 16:22. Our lack of spiritual insight—God's wisdom—as well as our earthly sentiments and opinions cause us to veer from God's way. Our flesh easily gets in God's way (Galatians 5:24).
Let us have a new beginning (Philippians 3:13-14).
If we repent, we will be forgiven so we can fulfill God's will. Because we know how the devil operates in our lives, examine Apostle Peter as an example of God's long-suffering, mercy, grace, and unconditional love for us. The LORD is on our side. Only be strong and very courageous...we will take the land of promise (Joshua 1:3-7; 1 Thessalonians 2:19).
Yes. Let's continue in prayer for one another just like Jesus did for Peter (Luke 22:31-32). Our prayers for one another will prove powerful to strengthen the church Jesus is building.
