“Don’t Give It a Second Thought!!!”
CHOF Ministry Scripture Reading for Today 1 Peter 4:12-19
Focused Scripture 1 Peter 4:15 (MSG)
If they’re on you because you broke the law or disturbed the peace, that’s a different matter. But if it’s because you’re a Christian, don’t give it a second thought. Be proud of the distinguished status reflected in that name!
Praise the Lord Beloved!!!
Beloved how many of you have been talked about, insulted, and or ostracized, because you lived an unwelcome lifestyle of immorality? I’m sure many of you will agree with me when I say, that many of the people that cast those critical remarks, and help construct the platform for your exemption, are professing Christians.
Now, how many of you have turned your life over to God and “NO LONGER” live that unwelcome lifestyle of immorality and YOU’RE STILL being talked about, insulted, and or ostracized – and many of the people are the same ones that ridiculed and led the petition to excommunicate you from society.
This morning Beloved, I’m going to share some encouragement with those of you who have traveled in the divergence of Christianity, but have been spiritually rehabilitated and now travel the narrow road guided by the Words of Jesus Christ.
Beloved, don’t think it strange after you’ve transformed from your immoral practices into an active spirit filled Christian lifestyle when people (many of them disguised as believing Christians) will continue to remove themselves from you, Many will continue to think to believe they are better than you and look down on you and others will dislike or just hate you because of the clique they’re in or for just the way you look talk or dress.
It’s OK!!! 😀 This is to be!!! The Bible tells us “But if it’s because you’re a Christian, “DON’T GIVE IT A SECOND THOUGHT.” Be proud of the distinguished status reflected in that name!”
In the Book of Matthew 5:11 (NCV) it says:
“People will insult you and hurt you. They will lie and say all kinds of evil things about you because you follow me. But when they do, you will be blessed.
Beloved, continue to be obedient to the things God has chosen for your transformed life in Christ. Let the sanctimonious people continue to walk in their undisciplined and self-righteous foolishness. Their day of insolence is on God’s horizon of justice, and He has a planned objective with their name on it.
Beloved, “A Christian Thought and an Immoral Walk
Will Cause Your Christian Faith to Balk.”
Have a Blessed Day Everyone!!!
