Dailies ~in His Word
April 10, 2019
Remind your people to obey the government and its officers, and always to be obedient and ready for any honest work. They must not speak evil of anyone, nor quarrel, but be gentle and truly courteous to all.  Once we, too, were foolish and disobedient; we were misled by others and became slaves to many evil pleasures and wicked desires. Our lives were full of resentment and envy. We hated others and they hated us.
Titus 3:1-4
This is such a good section of scripture to remind ourselves. As Christians who have been so for a while, we need to help younger believers learn how to behave. We ourselves need to remember that we were not so wise before we got to know Jesus and accepted the fact that He chose us to behave as He would have us not how we think people should be. It is not our place to speak down about others, and we are not supposed to fight with other people either but we need to be kind, we need to be gentle to everyone. Even non believers need our kindness. People who fight against believing in Jesus will not want to know Him if we are judgmental hypocrites, or if we behave rude and hateful. Now that we know Him, and have the Holy Spirit within us we need to behave as Christ does.
We need to love them with unconditional love, pray for those who are mean, just as He prayed for those who lead Him to the cross. He prayed “Father forgive them...”
Should we not behave the same way?
Heavenly Father, help us to be open to the lost around us. Help us to love on them just as You sent Jesus to love on us when we were lost as well. In Jesus name, amen .
