DEFENDING THE WEAK

KEY SCRIPTURE: John 8:7 KJV “So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.”

It is very normal to side with the majority, especially when the laws favour them. The Lord was a very principled man, who came to bear witness to the truth. The Lord would always protect the weak and vulnerable, yet He NEVER supported sin. Christians should never support victimisation of any weak person, yet like our master, they should always hate and speak against anything the word of God calls sin. It is the nature of our heavenly father to always support the weak. It is on the grounds of this principle that God seems to choose the second or last born’s of the fathers, to bring them into limelight.

 The naturally humbled are God’s favourites.

People in power must always do their best to help and alleviate the poor of their plight. The strong should never take advantage of the weak. Exodus 23:9 KJV “Also thou shalt not oppress a stranger: for ye know the heart of a stranger, seeing ye were strangers in the land of Egypt.” The stranger is quite helpless and needs a lot of assistance. To take advantage of such a one, is to invite the anger and fury of God. Just consider what the Lord says in the following verse; Lev 19:14 “Thou shalt not curse the deaf, nor put a stumblingblock before the blind, but shalt fear thy God: I am the LORD.” The deaf is impaired in his hearing, therefore, cursing him means he does not hear, and can’t tell what you maybe saying, yet you place an evil effect on his life. He can’t do anything about it. God the defender of the defenceless is the one who would act for him. The Lord also talked about not putting an impediment or obstructing on the path of the blind. This is a curse on you if you do so.

Men who molest minors in any form do so at the anger of God. There are certain rich men who would be forcing poor helpless girls who come to them for assistance, to have sex with them. Sadly, some of these people call themselves Christians. This is a disgrace to the name of Christ. You must always be ready to defend the defenceless.

 Power and influence is never forever.

It is given to you to serve, help and support the weak. Pastors should not use their position to live fat on the churches funds while poor congregation members live in very deplorable conditions.

 We are protectors of the unprotected.

CONFESSION

 I am in the stead of my Lord Jesus, I am a defender of the defenceless, a helper of the helpless, for the love of Jesus has filled my heart and so,I can’t stand the exploitation of the weak .

THOUGHT:  GOD WILL COME THROUGH FOR ANYONE WHO STANDS FOR THE WEAK.
