Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said,
We ought to obey God rather than men.
Lord, we have the treasure of Your Holy Spirit within us, within these simple jars of clay, to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. Lord, forgiving someone who has hurt us deeply is sometimes the way the power of the Holy Spirit is made most conspicuous in us. Forgive through each of us, Jesus. We are powerless without You. Show what You can do through our vessels. We offer ourselves to You for this authentic God-work. Not by might nor by power, but by Your Spirit, Lord Almighty, we Your children in this Nation, and all of our American Heroes will be able to forgive. Your Word assures us that it is You who works in us to will and to act according to Your good purpose. Thank You Lord Jesus, Amen
Praying daily for our Heroes and our beloved Nation.
Recently I was reading about how easy it is to mishandle the message of the Bible. We may try to make it support what we already believe is true instead of allowing it to speak to us with Gods intended message. Some people use the Bible to defend one side of an issue, while others use the Bible to attack that same issue. Both quote Scripture to support their views, but both cant be right.
It is important as we use Gods Word that we are committed to saying no more and no less than the Scriptures actually say. If we mishandle the Word, we misrepresent it, which ultimately misrepresents Gods character. This is why Paul challenged Timothy, Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth (2 Tim. 2:15). A key priority for unashamed, approved workers for Christ is to accurately interpret (rightly divide) Gods Word. As we study, we can depend on the Spirit, who inspired it, to give us understanding and wisdom.
Through our words and actions, we have opportunity to represent Gods Word in ways that genuinely reflect Gods heart. That is one of the greatest privileges of the Christian life.
Read: 2 Timothy 2:14-26
