The easily provoked and the brawler of the Kingdom

‘… most men will proclaim, everyone his own righteousness, but a faithful man who can find?’.
That someone has accepted Jesus Christ as his or her Lord and Saviour does not make that individual a saint (overnight): there must be the process of dedication to God’s word (hearing and doing what the words bid), praying to God for understanding, and living a life of consecration.

Today, there are a lot of leaders (in the church) who are full of different characters that cannot be associated with our Lord Jesus, but they just live their lives thoughtless of those shortcomings and are setting different kind of traps for oneanother or against their members.

 

Jesus and His disciples

 

If Jesus was to correct somebody today?
Like we call ourselves christians – many people do not toll the way of Christianity, but are taking it upon themselves to always find offenders of church doctrines (that are religious and limited: developed by men), while shrouding their own unbalanced lives.
Today, some Christian leaders now discuss the shortcomings of their followers rather than seeking to help them (as Christ would have done) – not loving people’s sins, but deriving pleasure in transforming their lives.
This is no longer the case, most times, as some Christian leaders now make their followers to feel incapable; unworthy of the services they render to the body of Christ; worthless than an ungodly; worthless of Jesus’ death and His salvation that He gives (as if they have the power to renounce those followers’ salvation); worthless than themselves (the leaders); and so on.
Correcting a mistake is no longer in love but to build leaders’ images
“Let everything you do be done in love (true love to God and man as inspired by God’s love for us).” 1 Cor 16:14, AMP
Some leaders would have torn down ministries and churches (due to their actions and words), but for a number of people who are only enduring (through the Holy Spirit) – those churches and ministries are still functioning.
This set of leaders causes griefs to their followers: although, they may not be totally bad – they pose a great risk to the ministries and churches in which they operate.
We are not condemning these people: everyone can still change from worse to better
The way Jesus handled the issue of a woman brought to Him by the Scribes and the Pharisees (with the allegation of adultery) was not to encourage the act of adultery, but to show great concern for people who have known shortcomings. John 8:1-11
Jesus did not raise abuse or shout on the woman like her accusers did. Rather, He demonstrated the wisdom of God to silence those accusers and then told the woman to go and sin no more.
The pivot of this devious act of choking people’s will by their leaders’ attitudes is ‘the lack of love’. If love exists in these leaders, they should be sensible enough to know that they are talking to people that have emotions; people that can be hurt; people that can be discouraged; people that have power over their
own wills; and people that are created in God’s image.
Leaders need to work on themselves to transform their followers
There is no one that can attain golden-maturity in the Christendom, but until we all die (from this world) – we cannot cease from asking God to help us in our Christian-race, everyday.
“I can do nothing on My own initiative. As I hear, I judge; and My judgment is just, because I do not seek My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.” John 5:30, NASB.
Jesus, Himself, affirmed that He could do nothing by His own power (when He was still on earth), but that He did everything as He heard from God.
We should note that imposing our will on people will only cause strive, and the scripture says that ‘a soft answer turns away wrath, but grievous words stir up anger’.
If leaders could work on themselves (unto perfection by working in peace with all and sundry), their followers would not become mad without cause: a follower (in his or her right senses) would not jump up and begin to accuse the leader without a reason.
In a nutshell, both leaders and followers should seek to having peaceful co-existence (at all times): they should keep in mind that they belong to the Kingdom of God, and therefore, could not tarnish God’s image between themselves and before the public.
Those who are hot-tempered should seek God for patience, longsuffering, joy, peace, and love; those who scourge with the words of mouth should seek God for self-control, endurance, kindness and peace.
likely meeting in the church
Since we are all running a race (not to outrun oneanother) for the perfection of all, together, we should deprive ourselves from seeking self-glory, but allow ourselves to seek the daily development of oneanother (in godliness and righteousness) unto the perfection of the saints, when individuals would be called home and when Christ would come to take those remaining, along with those risen from the dead.
“And if God is glorified through and in Him, God will also glorify Him in Himself, and He will glorify Him at once and not delay. [Dear] little children, I am to be with you only a little longer. You will look for Me and, as I told the Jews, so I tell you now: you are not able to come where I am going. I give you a new commandment: that you should love one another. Just as I have loved you, so you too should love one another. By this shall all [men] know that you are My disciples, if you love one another [if you keep on showing love among yourselves].” John 13:32-35, AMP.
NB: you do not have part in God’s eternal Kingdom except if you are born again (hence, you should accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour).
Would you love to give your life to Jesus? Then say this prayer:
I thank you Jesus because your death is a ransom for my soul. Thank you for not allowing the devil to take me into destruction.
I commit my spirit into your hands (for the rest of my life): guide me, shield me, and uphold me with your right hand of righteousness.
In Jesus name I prayed, amen.
A few things you should note:
Get a Bible and read it everyday.
Join a church that teaches the undiluted word of God so that you may grow spiritually.
Pray everyday, and listen to what the Holy Spirit instructs you with.
Live by the word of God, and delight yourself in sharing the truth of God’s words with people around you (beginning from your friends), and
Seek godly counsels when necessary.
