SIN CAN HINDER GOD’S PROTECTION – Psalm

Sinners Will Not Be Opportune To Enjoy God’s Favor

(Passage: Psalm 81)

The talk about sin is no more popular in our contemporary society, but God’s view on the subject remains unchanged. Sin irritates God; God’s children must stay away from it.

The term (Sin) has become trivialized in certain parts of the world. There is a Sin City, where any activity is considered permissible. Meanwhile, God does not joke with sin. The Bible states, “the consequence of sin is death” (Romans 6:23).

Anything that doesn’t fall in line with God’s commandment is a sin. Whoever engages in it is a sinner.

Repentance is the only means to escape the consequence of sin.

Obedience to the commandment of God will always lead to blessings.

Expect protection is a part of the package to receive by doing the will of God. God will bless us (his children) and deliver us from anything that crosses our path if we do his will. God will only perform his great miracles for people that serve him well. (Deliverance wasn’t difficult for God, but he denied Israelites of it because of their persistent sins.)

God said about blessing his children:

“Oh, that my people would listen to Me, that Israel would walk in my ways! I would soon subdue their enemies, and turn my hand against their adversaries. The haters of the Lord would pretend submission to Him, but their fate would endure forever. He would have fed them also with the finest of wheat; and with honey from the rock I would have satisfied you” (Psalm 81:13-16).

Sin Is An Unavoidable Term In The Sight of God

Repentance is the key to receiving God’s mercy. We must obey God and do his will to prosper.

A person who refuses to repent from his unrighteousness is considered an unrepentant sinner that will face God’s judgment in the end.

While repentant sinners will obtain God’s mercy, the unrepentant sinners will not have a place in his presence. They will become an outcast; miss God’s kingdom, and only qualify for hell.

People who persist in their evil ways will have many benefits to lose in the end. They will miss heaven and have their ultimate place in hellfire.

Understand these facts:

It is advantageous to do the will of God, even though it may first appear unpleasant. Also, an act of yielding

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
