HUMILITY IS A TRAIT THAT ALL CHRISTIANS MUST POSSESS – Acts

True Believers Ought To Always Operate In Humility

(Passage: Acts 10)

Servants of God, as well as all other Christians, ought to make humility their lifestyle. This practice will glorify God and also pose a serious challenge to the unbelievers. The unbelievers will emulate the trait of humility from the believers and surrender their lives to God.

Peter (in the bible) demonstrated an act of humility that all Christians must emulate. The scripture reported,

“As Peter was coming in, Cornelius met him and fell down at his feet and worshiped him. But Peter lifted him up, saying, “Stand up; I myself am also a man” (Acts 10:25-26).

(Cornelius wanted to worship Peter, being a servant of God, but Peter forbade him with a statement “I am also a fellow human being like you”)

God Alone Deserves To Be Worshiped; Everyone Must Worship Him

God is the only deity that all people must worship; no other deity or human being must be worshiped. Also, no human being should worship money, material wealth, or others. God frowns at any activity that would attempt to share his glory. The Creator can go any extent to withdraw his protection and provision whenever his children refuse to glorify him. It is absolutely dangerous for any Christian to acclaim God’s glory unto himself or herself. Therefore, all people must redirect every due honor to God. After all, no one can achieve any positive thing on earth without the help of God. All people must glorify God in every situation!

Have you ever wondered where you would be without receiving God’s help? Think about how far you’ve come, and ponder on the reasons why he, alone, deserves praises. Ponder on the fact that your life worths nothing without the help of God. God makes every aspect of your life possible; therefore, praise him every day.

Proclaim The Goodness of God In Your Prayers

Dear God, you deserve every honor in my life. You deserve my offering of praises and thanksgiving at all times. No one else can offer me protection and provision like you do! You have sheltered and cared for me in times of need; you gave me peace and earned me a solution to my problems. Why then should I not praise you?

Please give me the

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
