Equipped To Coil Tensions

Equipped To Coil Tensions

Monday, 30 August 2021

“Pursue peace with all people, and holiness, without which no one will see the Lord: looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;” – Hebrews 12:14-15

“But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” – Matthew 5:44-45

“He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He opened not His mouth; He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, And as a sheep before its shearers is silent, So He opened not His mouth.” – Isaiah 53:7

There is a nature and characteristics of the sons of God, and that is the nature of Christ. Humble, meek, quiet, temperate, peaceable, gentle, loving, forgiving with no exceptions. Just because we grapple with this truth does not make it less true, neither does it mean we can still be Christ-like without these characteristics just because we struggle. There is no love among us as we ought to have and that is possibly why there’s no power to our Christianity. Instead, we are at each other’s throats, angry, full of complaints, and are ALWAYS TALKING! We always have some revelation to share but fall short in the fundamentals of our faith.

Forgiveness isn’t as simple as it sounds but there’s no foregoing it. We cannot continue in strife among the brethren any longer, this is urgent because we cannot afford to harbor this malice against each other. Where there are human beings there’ll be tensions but we have the tools we need to coil the tensions. Unforgiveness in the heart is dangerous, spiritually, emotionally, and physically. It’s not meant to be in our new nature. We must make efforts to heal past hurts, it’s not up to GOD, it’s up to us. GOD has already bridged the gap between us and Himself, how are we bridging the gaps between ourselves and the brethren?
