Text: Acts 5: 1. But a certain man named Ananias, with Sapphira his wife, sold a possession,
2. And kept back part of the price, his wife also being privy to it, and brought a certain part, and laid it at the apostles’ feet.
God is faithful and just in all His ways.
Our God is merciful and full of love, but there’s another side of Him that reveals His judgement and wrath.
If man rebukes unfaithfulness, how much more being unfaithful to God.
A man who claims to love God must fear Him, and faithfully serve Him.
Our anchor text tells us about the unfaithfulness of Ananias and his wife Sapphira, whom God killed as they lied.
Beloved, the wages of sin is death, oh! How much we have provoked God to anger in so many way through our unfaithfulness, and yet He pardons us because of the finished work of Christ.
Mishandling your church funds is an unfaithful attitude and a sin unconfessed or an unrepentant sinner, will soon face the wrath of God.
Lies to your fellow brethren is not a faithful attitude and should not be seen among Christians.
Stealing, lack of commitment to responsibilities, and many other little things we looked down on, can provoke God.
Today, God is calling us to a faithful, spirit and truth lifestyle of worship.
The Lord wants us to represent Him in all worthiness, readiness and all faithfulness.
Identify areas where you have been unfaithful to God, and repent from them all.
Allow the Holy Spirit to lead you always in all your decisions, your actions, and in all you do.
Happy new week.
