Holy Spirit Will Help Anyone Overcome His Limitation

A person who claims to love God must express it by loving his Son Jesus Christ. The person must also love his or her neighbors. Here are God’s words,

“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’”(Luke 10:27 NIV).

“Whoever believes that Jesus is the Christ is born of God, and everyone who loves Him who begot also loves him who is begotten of Him. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God and keep His commandments” (1 John 5:1-2 NKJV).

The task to love God and our fellow human beings may sound easy but it can be sometimes intensive. It can be tough to truly love the hostile people. Also, it can be challenging to love God wholeheartedly during a difficult situation. However, despite the challenges, believers still have the privilege of depending on empowerment of the Holy Spirit to fully meet the standard of God – “Love God and love your neighbors.”

To overcome the challenge of struggling to fully love God and truly love our neighbors, we must rely on the power of the Holy Spirit.

Christian: Have Confidence In Holy Spirit!

Holy Spirit can help us overcome our limitations and adequately meet the standard of God. To achieve this, we must express our dependence on God. That is, we must pray and express our frustrations and fears to God. We must tell him how we feel, and how powerless we are in a situation. More importantly, we must ask God to send his Holy Spirit to possess us, empower us, and guide us to behave appropriately according to his commandments.

A believer who operates in the realm of the Holy Spirit through prayers and Bible study will receive God’s empowerment to prosper. The person will regain the strength to behave in a manner that glorifies God.

No doubt that Satan will tempt a Christian to act in the flesh and be less loving in a hostile environment, but the fellow can depend on the power of the Holy Spirit to adequately meet the standard of God.

Holy Spirit gives us the power to fully love God and our neighbors. The Bible states, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible” (Matthew

GOD DOES NOT REWARD FALSE CHARITY – Matthew

Honest Charity Deserves Good Reward

It is good to be good! When we act in good faith, people are blessed, and God is glorified.

No doubt that God sees our charity efforts. He is surely keeping the record, and he will reward them in due time.

God and his angels rejoice when someone goes out of his way to bless his fellow human being, but not only are heavenly hosts celebrating the good deed, but God keeps the record; he will hands down his good reward for the effort.

Since an act of charity is honorable in the sight of the Lord, Christians are encouraged to engage in it.

Charity Worker, Check Your Motive

Not all charity works are visible to others, but some can’t really be kept secret from the public eyes. In such a situation, people may acknowledge and shower praises on the worker. However, the charity worker must take caution and not get carried away with the praises he receives.

A person who does a thing to receive human praise has gotten all he deserves. He may not necessarily receive God’s reward afterward since he’s all out seeking human’s approval and praises.

As children of God, our efforts must not focus on receiving human’s praises but must focus on glorifying God.

When selfishness is not the driving motive, the result of our efforts will be so praise-worthy in the presence of God.

Meanwhile, besides any human’s praises and acknowledgment, God knows how best to reward our righteous services that focus on helping humanity and glorifying the name of God.

God will reciprocate our true efforts with riches and glory in his kingdom. He will also bless us on earth.

“Therefore, when you do a charitable deed, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory from men. Assuredly, I say to you; they have their reward. But when you do a charitable deed, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, that your charitable deed may be in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will Himself reward you openly. (Matthew 6:2-4).

God’s Reward Awaits Your True Services

God is an honest deity; he also respects people who share the same attribute. True worshipers score a high mark with God, but people’s pleasers won’t go far!

As a child of God, you should evaluate your motive in any matter.

Ask yourself, “Why am I doing what I’m doing: Am I doing it to receive human’s praises, or I’m doing it to receive God’s praises?”

Self-seeking praise may go well with humans, but it doesn’t go well with God. Let your efforts be motivated by love; let your action glorify God! 

Allow God to Guide Your Actions Human flesh is in enmity with God – Flesh will encourage you to go in the way of human satisfaction, which means you will have to seek human praises to meet the demand. The flesh will motivate you to parade your charity, but the Holy Spirit of God can help you overcome that challenge. Those who are led by the Spirit are the children of God! Ask God to give you the strength and power not to be selfish nor seek
