Bible Reading: Jude. 1:3-8
Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
As we have successful patriarchs in the Bible so also we have record of people who failed for reasons traceable to their individual actions and disposition to things that matter before God.
After being saved through the manifold grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, as a christian you must not in any sense work contrarily to the commandment of the Lord in all sense of reasons.
God will not bend his will for anybody regardless of your stand in his presence or place in his agenda.
One thing that triggers the wrath of God is premeditated disobedience, also called rebellion.
Samson had earlier been warned by his parents against having relationships with anybody who is not an Israelite but he was determined to suit his personal desire and that cut short his life and destiny.
The nation of Sodom and Gomorrha also triggered the anger of the Lord by obeying the need of their flesh.
Disobedience is at the root of the discomforts experienced by either a nation, a family or an individual. Most our problems are self inflicted.
Disobedience is an agent of the devil to move man against God.
Let Us Pray.
1. Thank you oh Lord for revealing the cause of stagnancy in my life.
2. Oh Lord God, deliver me from every habit and act of disobedient against your will, commandment and purpose in my life.
3. Thank you for answered prayers.
