I have chosen to speak on this topic this morning to the children of God because of our present attitudes in the country, state, local government, community, biological and extended families, clubs and societies.
Let us look closely to the bible and find out what the Holy Spirit has for us. Turn to Peter’s letter to the displeased Christians of his time – 1 Pet. 4: 7 “But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. I want all of us to re-examine ourselves, our attitudes towards each other in our families, the small unit to the society. Our attitudes, is it to the benefit of ourselves or to the benefit of others.
I have chosen to speak on this topic which is in a question form and all of us will have to answer to this question now or then.
Topic: On the judgment day, who will answer for me?
Text: 2 Cor. 5: 10
We are going to take our journey from the small unit – our different families:
- Husband/wife relationship – how cordial is it?
Husband love your wife
Wife reverend your husband
Eph. 5: 22
- Children/Parents relationship – Children obey your parent in the Lord
Ye fathers provoke not your children to wrath
Eph. 6: 1 – 4
Recompense to men evil for evil – Rom. 12: 17
- Servants, Masters/Mistresses relationship
Servants, be obedient to your to your masters and mistresses – Eph. 6: 5 – 8
And, ye masters and mistresses do the same things to them – Eph. 6: 9
The Bible says we will one day answer for ourselves – 2 Cor. 5: 10 – for we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that everyone may receive the things done in his body, according to that he had done, whether it be good or bad.
Listen to Ezekiel – Eze. 18: 20 – The soul that sinneth it shall die.
Thank you and stay blessed in Jesus name – Amen
