OPEN HEAVENS DEVOTIONAL FOR TODAY
When there is a dispute going on around you, there are three lines of action you can take: You can stay out of it, take sides or make peace between the quarrelling parties. God expects his children to pick the option of making peace at all times. When you are known as a Christian, people respect and trust your judgement.
Hence it would be of great effect if you attempt to make peace between quarrelling parties.
Your involvement can avert a lot of things like a full-blown fight, a long period of malice or an unresolved disagreement. If getting involved to make peace can have this effect, why be indifferent? You could even be the one involved in a quarrel. At such times, I implore you to always choose the side of peace.
Always look for a way in which both yourself and the other party can settle the matter amicably or peacefully. This may be difficult to do as it may result in you forgoing some benefits so as to let peace reign, but then it is the right thing to do.
Imagine walking by the road and you see me arguing violently with someone. If you know me very well, you are likely to conclude that it is just a look-alike, and can’t be me.But if it happens to be me, then you would be greatly disappointed by my behaviour. That is how baby Christians and unbelievers look at you too.
They believe that as a Christian, you should act like Christ and He is not quarrelsome. Rather, he commanded that we should love our enemies (Luke 6:35).
By quarrelling, you show the world a wrong example of how a true Christian should behave and God forbid that they carry on with that.
Many people have decided against becoming saved because of how they saw some so-called Christians conduct themselves. Don’t deter someone else’s salvation.
Fighting for your right can never be worth as much as a person’s soul. Paul said in Romans 14:21:“It is good neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wine, nor any thing whereby thy brother stumbleth, or is offended, or is made weak.”
Choose to be a peacemaker today.
OPEN HEAVEN 21 JANUARY 2020 KEY POINT: God wants you to be a peacemaker at all times.
OPEN HEAVEN 21 JANUARY 2020 HYMNAL:
HYMN 27 – TAKE MY LIFE, AND LET IT BE
1. Take my life, and let it be
Consecrated, Lord to Thee;
Take my moments and my days,
Let them flow in ceaseless praise.
2. Take my hands, and let them move
At the impulse of Thy love;
Take my feet, and let them be
Swift and beautiful for Thee.
3. Take my voice and let me sing
Always, only, for my King;
Take my lips and let them be
Filled with messages from Thee.
4. Take my silver and my gold;
Not a mite would I withhold;
Take my intellect, and use
Every power as Thou shalt choose.
5. Take my will and make it Thine,
It shall be no longer mine:
Take my heart, it is Thine own;
It shall be Thy royal throne.
6. Take my love, my Lord, I pour
At Thy feet its treasure store;
Take myself, and I will be
Ever, only, all for Thee.
