The Light Daily Devotional – A Real Son By Actions
Focus: A Real Son By Actions
WORD FOR TODAY
You are a child of God not by your company, language or words, appearance but by what you do with respect to God’s will for your life!
What do you think? There was a man who had two sons. He went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work today in the vineyard.’ “‘I will not,’ he answered, but later he changed his mind and went. Then the father went to the other son and said the same thing. He answered, ‘I will, sir,’ but he did not go. – Matthew 21:28-30 NKJV
It is not enough to pretend to say yes to God; it is very much important that you appear the way you are both in your thoughts and intentions.
Many men like the first son in the bible verse affirm the fact that they will go and do according to the word of God given to them. In the presence of God’s people and various men in their immediate contact, they appear as if they are going but in the actual sense, they are not.
People see them as candidates of God’s kingdom in words, language and other physical attributes but they are not. There is nothing a man can gain by pretending because God cannot be mocked but you can be helped if you will always choose to appear the way you are.
Don’t allow people to keep thanking God on your behalf when you are still living in rottenness despite your wonderful appearance. Deny yourself by always saying yes to God both in words and indeed.
+ With respect to your appearance; are you truly for God?
Prayer: Lord! I receive the grace to always say yes to you in all situations both in words and indeed in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: You can only be a real son of God through what you do than what you say and your appearance!
Have a Gracious Friday!
