Topic: Benefits of His Witnesses
Memorise: Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before God, even to us, who did eat and drink with Him after He rose from the dead. Acts 10:41
Read: Acts 10:39-41 (KJV)
39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did both in the land of the Jews, and in Jerusalem; whom they slew and hanged on a tree:
40 Him God raised up the third day, and shewed him openly;
41 Not to all the people, but unto witnesses chosen before of God, even to us, who did eat and drink with him after he rose from the dead.
Bible In One Year: Job 29-30, Acts 12
Not everyone who appears to rejoice with you over an accomplishment or promotion is sincere. In fact, many people mean the exact opposite of their good wishes. It is only in the Kingdom of God that you can have those who will genuinely rejoice with you. If you claim you belong to God’s Kingdom and still find it difficult to rejoice at the rise or elevation of others, the law of sin is still very strong in your life.
A genuine child of God will sincerely rejoice with those that rejoice, and sincerely mourn with those that mourn. If you know that doing this doesn’t come easy to you, you have to start praying earnestly for God to arrest your heart and make it broken and tender.
Action Point: Pray that every devourer pretending to be a friend of your family should be exposed.
