If we are genuinely committed to God, we can stand up to opposition and examination.

     Should we stay away from unbelievers? No. Although there are some places Christians should avoid, Jesus demonstrated that we must go among unbelievers to help them. But there is a difference between being with unbelievers and being one of them. Trying to be one of them harms our witness for God. Ask about the people you enjoy, “If I am with them often, will I become less obedient to God in outlook or action?” If the answer is yes, carefully monitor how you spend your time with these people and what effect it has on you.

Proverbs 2:6 – 10

Daily Promises (April 2nd)

Choose a new font size and typeface

But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep [you] from evil. And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you. (2 Thessalonians 3:3-4)

Reflection

Even as we are faithless, our Father is faithful to love us and faithful to fashion our hearts to resemble His character. From His great love for us, He is our shield and comfort in times of trials and temptations as He delivers us from the enemy. Consideration of this wonderful promise initiates our continued adoration and worship to the God of Most High.

Matthew 11:1-6

And it came to pass, when Jesus had made an end of commanding his twelve disciples, he departed thence to teach and to preach in their cities.

Mat 11:2   Now when John had heard in the prison the works of Christ, he sent two of his disciples, And said unto him, Art thou he that should come, or do we look for another? Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:  The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.   

verses 2-3 Focus points: John had been put in prison by Herod. Herod had married his own sister – in law, and John publicly rebuked Herod’s flagrant sin(14:3-5) John’s Profile is found in John 1. Herod’s Profile is found in Mark 6.

Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see: 
The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them. Jesus answered and said unto them, Go and shew John again those things which ye do hear and see:  The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.  And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.

As John sat in prison, he began to have some doubts about whether Jesus really was the Messiah. If John’s purpose was to prepare people for the coming Messiah (3:3) and if Jesus really was that Messiah, then why was john in prison when he could have been preaching to the crows, preparing their hearts?  Jesus answered John’s doubts by pointing Jesus’ acts of healing the blind, lame, and deaf, curing the lepers, raising the dead, and preaching the good news to the poor. With so much evidence, Jesus identity was obvious. If you sometimes doubt your salvation, the forgiveness of your sins, or God’s work in your life, look at the evidence in Scripture and the changes in your life. When you doubt, don’t turn away from Christ, turn to him.
