Spiritual Digest for the Day 26Jun2016

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NKJV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY The most important thing in anything that we are doing or supporting is to ask whether such thing would glorify God. No matter how good or popular anything may be, if it does not glorify God, then, we should have a rethink on it. - Bayo Afolaranmi ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that you will not do anything that will not glorify God in your life.

DOES IT GLORIFY GOD?

Dearly Beloved, DOES IT GLORIFY GOD? “Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31 NKJV). One of the things I observed in the ongoing UEFA EURO 2016 championship is the way most of the players modify their skins with various types of tattoo. It seems they are competing who will outdo the other with the trend. The act of this skin piercing has become a common thing in the western world and it is becoming more acceptable among young adults and even middle-aged people, women inclusive. However, does this make the act right? What is beautiful or good in disfiguring the image of God that He has made human beings to be? Will the fact that many people have accepted it and it has become something in vogue makes it right? There have been many arguments for and against tattoo, which is a form of body modification made by inserting permanent (and at times, temporary) ink into the skin to change the colour of the skin. While some people, even Christian leaders, see nothing wrong with this act, many Christians frown at it. I would not want to join the arguments for or against tattoo, because I know that people are ready to justify or condemn it with some Bible references to support their positions. However, why will I modify my skin with all sorts of images and inscriptions? Will such modification or body piercing glorify God in me? What impact will it make on other people? Will I blindly join others to do it, and or some other controversial things, because they have become so popular? Why will I become a stumbling block to other people because of my actions? The most important thing in anything that we are doing or supporting is to ask whether such thing would glorify God. No matter how good or popular anything may be, if it does not glorify God, then, we should have a rethink on it. “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew 5:16 NKJV). “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men” (Colossians 3:23 NKJV). Does it glorify God? In His service, Bayo Afolaranmi (Pastor). Prayer Point: Pray that you will not do anything that will not glorify God in your life.

Spiritual Digest for the Day 24Jun2016

BIBLE VERSE FOR THE DAY “We have this treasure from God, but we are only like clay jars that hold the treasure. This is to show that the amazing power we have is from God, not from us. We have troubles all around us, but we are not defeated. We often don’t know what to do, but we don’t give up. We are persecuted, but God does not leave us. We are hurt sometimes, but we are not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:7-9 ERV). ****************** QUOTE FOR THE DAY Though pressure squeezes from every side, the power of Christ keeps us from being crushed. Though perplexed with all that is happening, we do not despair, for in Christ we know we are on the victorious side. - Gerry Whetstone ******************** PRAYER/ACTION FOR THE DAY Pray that the power of Jesus Christ will keep you from being crushed in spite of all life pressures.
