Weekend Inspiration


Building on a message that was in the churches newsletter at Pastor Tony’s and Helen’s church {Great friends of the ministry}. Lets look a a story from Judges 19 verses 10 to 29: During the period of the judges, it was dangerous to travel in the day time and even more so at night. The Levite in this story didn’t want to stay in Jerusalem because it was in the hands of the pagans Jebusites. Thus he pressed on four miles to Gibeah so he could be with his own people. But he men of Gibeah turned out ot be as wicked as the heathen around them. The raw immortality of this account should not distract us from the point that our fellowship as be;livers should be a place of safety for outsiders. What kind of welcome do visitors experience in your church or home?

Our obligation to God is to speak well of those who would persecute or hate us. Good and bad things happen to the just and unjust. With everything that is happening in this world and in our personal lives currently, it is easy to fall back to the ways of the world. One can see time and time again on social media. Christians cursing other faiths and people. We are all most likely guilty at sometime of speaking badly to those who have hated us. But God reminds us all today of His Word. A timely word in such a time as this.

Dear brothers and sisters in Christ… keep your peace…, if we can’t speak peace than say nothing and pray that Our Lord and Our Friend will help our hearts line up with our speech. We are called to love. We are called to be a light in the dark places. We are called to bless, do Good and commune with Him, in e very aspect of life.

Matthew 5 verse 43 to 45: {NLT Version}

V43: “You have heard the law that says, ‘Love your neighbor’ and hate your enemy’.”

V44: “But I say, ‘Love your enemies!’ Pray for those who persecute you’!”

V5: “In that way, you will be acting as true children of Your father in heaven. For He gives His sunlight to both the evil and the good, and He sends rain on the just and the unjust alike”.

Ephesians 6 verse 12: “For our battle is not against flesh and blood”. AND

1 Samuel 17 verse 47: “For the battle is The Lord’s”.

Be Blessed Today And Everyday,
