Today's Bible Verse To Ponder Over

✞◎∂αƴ❝ṧ ฿їßℓε Ṽℯґṧℯ ✞ℴ ℙøηḓℯґ ϴṽ℮я :

"Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted." (Gal 6:1, NKJV).

Temptation can come to any spiritual baby or a giant in faith to make them fall any time, any place and any moment. In fact those who boast about their spirituality in life, have not learnt this basic lesson and are still considered as spiritual babies by the demons and devils that are prowling around in the air. These people have 'Holier than thou,' attitude within them that never allow them to grow spiritually from the baby stage of life they are in. These religious nuts are never a threat to the kingdom of Satan.

These immature people are not good listeners, they always take offense, not quick to forgive, never reliable, not supportive, have no appetite for prayer and fasting, do not rely on the Word of God, the more God lifts them up, the more they become proud of it, always defend themselves but never others, they do not repent, do not seek peace and pursue it, never love people instead will use them for their own benefits, not compassionate, they do not know when to talk and when to be quiet, lack wisdom in many aspects of life, do not respect people and are not sensitive to people's feelings, do not have patience and they are short tempered, do not fear God, do not give honor where it is due, always discontent with what they have, do not have good leadership skills, not hospitable, always carried away by all kinds of teachings, not good followers but want to boss over others, do not have a sacrificial spirit, they gossip and look down on people, have no faith, they take part in church activities and attend church regularly to keep themselves and their inflated egoistic reputation of a religious life from being punctured so that they can maintain their so called good reputation of what others think about them to be maintained in the community perspective for their own benefit, not clean in every aspect of life but will playfully do deceitful works against their own conscience, their spirits are not sensitive, and they would love to play with sin, will act holier than others and will compete with others. Where are we standing in this above list of immaturity saints? Ask the Lord to help you grow to be like Christ Jesus.

As a immature Christian we do look down on others when we do find them with any sin or even without it to show our superiority over them, but if we are mature in Christ Jesus, we will not depend on our own strength that may fail us any moment to make us fall in sin, but rather on Christ's grace which empowers us to overcome sin. No matter what height a man or a woman of God reaches in their spiritual life, they will always acknowledge the truth that they stand as overcomers by the grace of our Lord Jesus if they are mature. Some people who become actors with the spiritual gifts they posses will tend to think that they will never fall in to some particular sin or sins, I have seen great prophets and apostles say the same thing, but when the moment of truth came, they fell in to the exact sin they mocked in others. Why did such a so called spiritual people fall in to such sin they rebuked in others being a reputed spiritual leaders themselves? Because God resists the proud who think they stand by their own strength, but gives grace to all those who fall before Him with a broken spirit. God has no favorites to overlook when it comes to bad attitude, he judges all his children equally as a just judge over all the earth. So when we tell others to repent, it should be done in a spirit of gentleness knowing that we too are susceptible to fall in to the same sin or any sin that we think we may never fall. Break the jinx that make you think that you will never fall in to sin, and instead become a mature Christian by depending on the grace of God that strengthens you to overcome sin and keep you away from falling in to it or continuing in it. So let us always remember when seeing or dealing with sinners, "There go I ____put your name here instead of that sinner to say____ but for the grace of God."

Much Blessings....
