Walking in Love!
Scripture reading for June 10th: Proverbs 14-15, Romans 14
Key Scriptures: Romans 14:15-19 “For is your brother is grieved by what you eat, you are no longer walking in love. By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died. So do not let what you regard as good be spoken of as evil. For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever thus serves Christ is acceptable to God and approved by men. So then let us pursue what makes for peace and for mutual upbuilding.”
Everything we do as believers should be motivated by love. If we have a brother or sister that believes that something we are eating is defiled and harmful, we must be mindful of their beliefs and not cause them to stumble. We should help them to see that God’s kingdom is not based on rules and regulations, but righteousness through faith in Christ Jesus. As we rest in Christ Jesus and His righteousness, we can enjoy peace with God and the joy of sins forgiven.
Faith confession and prayer: Lord Jesus, help me to walk in love towards my brothers and sisters today in all that I do and say. I have kingdom joy and peace today from resting in Jesus Christ for my righteousness.
Proverbs 14:15-16 “The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps. One who is wise is cautious and turns away from evil, but a fool is reckless and careless.”
