KEY SCRIPTURE: 2 Timothy 2:1 ” Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus”.
We continue with our study on why some Christians remain sick.
Some Christians are too lazy to do certain actions that can assist them to take advantage of the grace of God. God’s grace is always available to see us through every challenge that we may face. The scriptures says 2 Corinthians 12:9 “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness…….”During your weak moments God’s strength is made perfect and you must take advantage of that grace. Some are lazy to study God’s word and even lazy to maintain a declaration of God’s word.
God’s grace is very much available but you must take advantage of it. The scripture says submit to God resist the devil and he will flee from you. Unfortunately a number of the children of God would not have the time to resist the devil and his works in their lives. Note, what you fail to confront and resist have the right to remain.
Another area why some Christians are sick is when they fail to walk in love. Every fellow believer is the body of christ.1 Corinthians 12:27 “Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular”. If you fail to walk in love and to mistreat your fellow believer you would not have discerned the brother or sister as the body of Christ.
Now listen to what the Bible says when we fail to discern the body of Christ.1 Corinthians 11:29-30 ” For he that eateth and drinketh unworthily, eateth and drinketh damnation to himself, not discerning the Lord’s body.
For this cause many are weak and sickly among you, and many sleep”.
Please note ,the body of Christ is His body, whether the bread that is broken or the fellow believer that you mistreat.The scripture said many are weak and some are sick and others even die.
Dear child of God walking in love is to be very natural for the Christian and therefore it must be very normal with us to walk in love.
May we always learn to discern the body of Christ by walking in love.
I refuse to be lazy in practicing any spiritual exercises. I always take advantage of the grace of God .Love is my nature, so as I walk in love towards all, the power of God keeps me strong and healthy at all times.
James 4:6-7 ” But he giveth more grace. Wherefore he saith, God resisteth the proud, but giveth grace unto the humble. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you”.
1 John 1:6-7 ” If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth: But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin”.
