DCLM Daily Manna 11 July, 2018 by Pastor Kumuyi – Follow His Steps

Topic: Follow His Steps
[DCLM Daily Manna Wednesday July 11, 2018] Text: Matthew 17:22-27 (KJV)

Key Verse: “Notwithstanding, lest we should offend them, go thou to the sea, and cast an hook, and take up the fish that first cometh up; and when thou hast opened his mouth, thou shalt find a piece of money: that take, and give unto them for me and thee” (Matthew 17:27).

MESSAGE:

Thoughtful people always consider how their actions will affect others and the society at large. One could be quiet on some issues or forgo to press one’s right in some areas in order to pursue peace. Sometimes, trying to press for one’s right may cause further strains. This is not considered foolishness or an act of weakness. It is rather being discretional to one’s environs.

In today’s passage, Jesus was questioned with regards to the payment of tax. As the Son of God, He and His disciples were supposed to be exempted from paying such taxes. Though this was right, Jesus rather chose to do the expedient; that will not cause unnecessary strain in His relationship with the people. He refused to press for His right to avoid causing an offence. What an example He left for us!

While there is nothing wrong for a Christian to know what his rights are and to demand for them when such need arises, he should learn from Christ and follow the principle of expediency. What is best for the moment? What will better represent Him to others? What will reveal Christ to the world? These should be the concern of the Christian above what he may consider as his rights.

There will be less friction in the society if everyone is willing to place and promote the common good over their rights and conveniences. Christians must be at the forefront of exhibiting these traits. It will be unchristian for a believer to undermine the peace and tranquility of others, just to gratify self-interest. Christ did not please Himself. He rendered Himself prostrate, for the benefit of others. Believers will do well to act like Him.

Thought For The Day: What you gain in sacrificing is more than the sacrifice made.
