Christians should Come to Unity to Carry Out God’s Prophesies

Passage: Ezra 3

The exiled Jews were authorized to return home and rebuild their precious city, Jerusalem. All the released captives were excited to see their dreams come true, and they all agreed to start a project that would revamp God’s temple that the Babylonians have destroyed.

The returned Jews were very excited about their miraculous breakthrough; they repaired the Lord’s temple and praised God in one accord – to the extent that their enemies heard their testimony songs from a far distance.

The scripture reported;

“Then Jeshua with his sons and brothers, Kadmiel, with his sons, and the sons of Judah, rose as one to oversee those working on the house of God: the sons of Henadad with their sons and their brethren the Levites. When the builders laid the foundation of the temple of the Lord, the priests stood in their apparel with trumpets, and the Levites, the sons of Asaph, with cymbals, to praise the Lord, according to the ordinance of David king of Israel. And they sang responsively, praising and giving thanks to the Lord: “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever toward Israel. Then all the people shouted with a great shout, when they praised the Lord, because the foundation of the house of the Lord was laid” (Ezra 3:9-11).

The Devil Is No Match For United Christians

Great things are done for God when Believers are united. The devil cannot withstand a group of Christians that operate in unison. However, it is unfortunate that Christians sometimes, allow Satan to manipulate them into engaging in unhealthy rivalry and division.

Different Christian sects struggle against each other and fight for superiority. However, while believers are busy engaging in ungodly rivalry, Satan continues to gain ground. The enemy is making use of the opportunity to attack the Christian community!

Christian churches must endeavor to lay aside all differences and serve God in the beauty of holiness. Believers must unite and serve God together.

There’s no doubt that miracles will happen in the Christian community when we practice love and celebrate unity. The unity of brethren will honor God, and it will also put the devil to shame. Our unity as believers will also transform to our blessings as God’s children.

A lover of Christ scares the devil.

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
