June 16, 2015 DIRECT OTHERS
It’s always good to have someone with us when we are attempting to do something difficult. They can help us by seeing things we may not see. They can help us be safe by looking out for us so we don’t hurt ourselves. Also, in our spirituality, we are to be watchmen for those around us. We are to ask God to guide us to warn others when they go the wrong way. We can direct them and give them hope. We can ask God today to show us what words and actions He wants us to use to be a watchman for others.
Ezekiel 33:9 “But if you warn them to repent and they don’t repent, they will die in their sins, but you will have saved yourself.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to be our brother’s keepers. We know we are to look out for others and help them as You have called us to do. We know we are to show love and concern for them and let them know when they are getting into something that could go wrong. We know we are to help them see things clearer when they may be doing something that could hurt them or others. We want to direct others to follow Your path and live in obedience to You. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
God can help us by giving us the words to say to others who need to turn from their sins.
God wants to use us as an instrument against sin so we can direct others back to Him.
When we go to God daily asking for direction in our own lives, He will show us what to do.
When we are faced with advising a friend on what they should do, we need to pray and ask God how to help them.
We are to be our brothers’ keeper and help them to recognize their sins and repent.
Hebrews 12:15a “Look after each other so that none of you fails to receive the grace of God.” (NLT)
Focus: Be sure to look out for others so they can turn from wrong and turn to God.
