Our Daily Manna 3 February 2020


BASIC SCRIPTURE: John 13: 20-38

Imagine this: A visitor walks into a church and sits down in a pew, only to be told by another member: “Oh, that’s my seat.” What do you think will happen? That new “member” may NEVER return again. Also consider this scenario: A phone rings during church service by accident during prayers. The Pastor scolded the phone owner. The worshipers admonished him after prayers for interrupting. His wife kept on nagging him on his carelessness all the way home. His co-vineyard workers shook their heads in disgust.
You could see the shame, embarrassment and humiliation on his face. He never stepped foot in the church again. That evening, he went to a bar. He was still nervous and trembling. Our Daily Manna 3 February 2020 – THEY PUSHED HIM TO THE BAR! – 1

He spilled his drink on the table, the bottle fell by accident and it splashed on some people. Those it touched rushed towards him. He closed his eyes expecting the bashing of words or slaps. Instead they cared to know if he didn’t get a cut from the broken bottle. The waiter apologized and gave him a napkin to clean himself. The janitor cleaned the floor. The female manager offered him a complimentary drink. She also gave him a huge hug and a peck while saying, “Don’t worry man. Who doesn’t make mistakes?” He has not stopped going to that bar since then. HOW CAN THERE BE MORE LOVE IN THE WORLD THAN IN THE CHURCH? Amazing! The Holy Ghost lesson is that in this year 2020, let your lifestyle and attitude draw men to Christ! Do you know that many believers’ lifestyle PUSH PEOPLE AWAY from Christ and finally to HELL? Make a difference by how you treat people especially when they don’t fit into your doctrines. Stop acting like a bureaucrat and insisting that people obey the law by the letter!

By doing this, the church, which is a mother, turns into a mother-in-law for many people. Please always make people feel that the Church is a mother, not a mother-in-law! (By the way, not all mother-in-laws are partial in their love). Stop any HOLIER-THAN-THOU attitude! It has scared many from THE MASTER! Listen to John 13:35: “By this shall all men know that ye are My disciples, if ye have love one to another.” BY THIS SHALL ALL MEN KNOW! It is BY LOVE not by laws! Use this year to show love without LIMITS and let nothing you do drive men from the Savior of their souls! Stay with God! Walk with God! Move at His pace! Even when the storms seem to rage, don’t panic! Get a word from God before any action! Never move until He moves! Never rest until He rests! Let your hands be in His hands! You will excel!
