THEME: OBEY YOUR PARENTS
“Do you not know that to whom you present yourselves slaves to obey, you are that one’s slaves whom you obey, whether of sin leading to death, or of obedience leading to righteousness?”
-God is our Father and He calls us to obey Him. By obeying His word and our parents, we obey Him. Our parents have been given the responsibility to introduce us and lead us to our heavenly Father. Obedience to God leads to righteousness but obedience to sin leads to death. When Jesus set us free from sin, we became slaves of righteousness. We should not therefore present ourselves as instruments of unrighteousness to sin, but alive to God in righteousness. We should not fear to walk in righteousness for God has bestowed upon us His grace and sin does not have dominion over us, for we are not under law but under grace. Since we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection. In John 10:27-28, God assures us that He is our Father and He gives us eternal life saying, “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; neither shall anyone snatch them out of My hand”.
Thank You Father for making us Your children that we can call You Abba Father. You have made us righteous through Your death and resurrection and imparted unto us Your grace leading to eternal life, we praise Your holy name. Thank You for setting us free from slavery of sin and have made us free indeed. Have mercy on us, our families and on the whole world Lord, forgive us our trespasses and cover us with Your precious blood. Give us the grace to love You so much that we can be delivered from the delusions and self-centeredness that so pervert our lives. Give us Your heart, give us Your love Father. Give us the grace Holy Spirit to convict us of sin, righteousness and judgement. Give us the grace to serve You and to finish our course Father. Give us the grace Holy Spirit to testify of You and to really totally on You. Give us the grace to preach the gospel so that those You have called to sit on the thrones in heaven; may remain in the path of life. Lord give us Your grace. Fill us with Your wisdom and discernment, grace and truth, humility and forgiveness, faith and wise council, love and compassion, knowledge and understanding, favor and the fear of You. Fill us with You fruit and gifts, not for our own sake but for Your glory Lord. Help us to overcome the world with Your love and to bear much more fruit with the gifts that You have entrusted unto us. Lord guide us to help the homeless, orphans, widows and to love those whom You love so that we may love You more, and to always be willing to give to them as You lead us Holy Spirit. Help us to see with Your eyes, hear with Your ears and understand with Your heart dear Jesus. May the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit, be with us now and forever more. Amen
