Christian Ultimate Guide To Winning
(Passage: Luke 9; Ephesians 6)
“Heads up!” -Jesus warned his disciples of impending danger and charged them to be prepared. The disciples lost consciousness of the warning and instead focused on irrelevant matters. They ended up being caught unaware.
The disciples of Jesus ought to follow Jesus’s advice to watch and pray against the impending danger; they were busy competing among themselves. Their priority shifted to fighting for a leadership position.
Sensitivity matters! Jesus had warned,
“Let these words sink down into your ears, for the Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men. “But they did not understand this saying, and it was hidden from them so that they did not perceive it; and they were afraid to ask Him about this saying” (Luke 9:46-47).
Rather than taking appropriate action, the Bible stated that the disciples,
“Then a dispute arose among them as to which of them would be greatest. And Jesus, perceiving the thought of their heart, took a little child and set him by Him, and said to them, “Whoever receives this little child in my name receives me; and whoever receives me receives Him who sent me. For he who is least among you all will be great” (Luke 9:46-47).
Lesson on Spiritual Sensitivity
The followers of Jesus Christ must be spiritually sensitive and act appropriately to overcome any life situation.
It is understood that politics has its place in society, but just not in the church! Believers must understand that politics can’t be adopted into faith matters.
Let’s keep in mind,
“For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:12).
Christianity is an exercise that must be practiced spiritually, not politically! #christianity #cardio #workout #practiceClick to tweet
Believers must be careful not to mistake faith for politics.
A person who decides to serve God must do so wholeheartedly: Be prayerful and spiritually sensitive.
The scripture stated,
God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth” (John 4:24).
Facing the Fact about Spiritual Sensitivity:
In this world, your faith will be tested. So don’t assume that your “Christianity” will only consist of positive matters. Be prepared to face these facts:
- Don’t make quick assumptions whenever a matter arises; make both spiritual and physical assessments of all issues.
- Be prayerful and be sensitive to the leadership of the Holy Spirit to overcome your trials.
- Understand that the power of God is ever-present to help you overcome any situation- no matter what it is, God is able!
- Be confident in your victory as the scripture stated, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death (Revelation 12:11).
Prayer To Be Empowered for Victory
Dear Jesus Christ, please, I ask you to help me be spiritually sensitive to overcome any challenge of life. Please help me operate under the Holy Spirit’s leadership so that I can win! Please make it easy for me to apply my spiritual exercise of fasting and prayer as I trust you for victory in all matters. Please help me to witness your great deliverance and keep me safe to remain worthy of your eternal kingdom. For in the name of Jesus Christ, I have prayed, amen.
