《Today’s spiritual meditation》: “We must obey God rather than human beings!” (Act 5:29)
Meditation one: Why are Christians the best citizens in the world? For we love God so we love people. The reason why Christians are obedient to those in power is because regime decrees from God. Christians not only obey the government in order to obey God, but also to show the glory of God. but also to show the glory of God. All of the self-denial, sacrifice, patience, and suffering show that we are children of God.
Meditation two: When a people’s command conflicts with God’s command, as it deviates from God’s will and the principles of righteousness, but demands us to do things that are against the faith, conscience, and morality, we would rather obey God for God’s glory. God will be in charge. Christians never flinch from people because their faith is rooted in Christ. We Christians know who we are and we know our duties in this world.
Prayer: Dear Lord, thank You for Your obedience to God to die on the cross and fulfill the mission of saving people. May You help me to emulate the obedience You have. Not only as a good citizen on the earth, but also as a good descendant in heaven so in all things I can be a responsible Christian citizen to benefit people and glorify God. I pray in the Name of the Lord Jesus, Amen!
Intercession: Pray for those in the church who are unwell, hospitalized, pregnant, newly moved, thinking of one another, looking for a job, weak in spirit, and having family crisis. Ask God to look after, support, comfort, and supply their needs. Pray that God will use us not only to become their intercessors, but also to become their good neighbors, so that the name of the Lord will be glorified.
