TOPIC:  You Have His Mandate

TEXT: Luke 12:49-59

DCLM Daily Manna Monday, May 16, 2022 OUTLINE

The social media is awash today with stories of those who have become outcast simply because they turned from their former religion to embrace Christianity. Increasingly, many people are being rejected by their families on account of their decision to give their lives to Christ. It did not start today. Following and serving the Lord has never been a tea party.

No doubt, obedience to the gospel would cause religious division within families, among friends, and wherever men would seek to obey traditional religions and feelings instead of God’s word. Jesus pointedly told His listeners that the gospel would bring great division among Jewish families.

All who have decided to follow Christ must, therefore, count the cost, having been forewarned. Rather than regret their decision and complain as a result of the persecution they face in their families, they are to pray and have total reliance on God for the grace to carry on. Although Jesus had said there would be division, He is always present to help believers in times of need.

When Peter focused on Jesus, he walked with his shoulders high. He enjoyed the bliss of supernatural experience. But when he gave attention to the distraction of the wind, fear gripped him and he started to sink. Since you have stepped out in faith by deciding to serve Jesus, do not end up in fear. Stretch forth your hand to Him, and He will hold you up, always.

THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: There is corresponding grace for every responsibility God gives a believer.

THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: 2 Samuel 12-14
