The Lord’s Day, February 28, 2021
to our church & fellowship
In your calling don’t “fro and to” Focus on what you have to do Grow from your youth, and do mature To fill yourself with Christ, be sure So endure and carry your cross Then “to and fro” no longer toss The stable state you will then reach So the true gospel you shall preach As you serve God, speak truth In love In true likeness, like hand in glove So His church build, in unity In all warmth, and tranquility A church fitted with every joint Hoping Christians respect this point So from old self, do disappear Towards the new, you have to steer 2 Chronicles: 16:9; Ephesians 4:14.
Have you heard of locomotion? It is just “to and fro” Motion Quite often known, as “back and forth” Or North to South and back to North. Its like when you, cannot decide By which belief, you must abide A dangerous situation That may affect your salvation The eyes of the Lord move” to and fro” In the past, He knew what He saw And He still continues to scan To care for those whose heart He won To Him, blameless must be our heart Otherwise peace from us, will part Waging war with our good Lord In the spirit, but not with sword
PRAYING FOR THE NEXT GENERATION “He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which he commanded our fathers to teach to their children, that the next generation might know them, the children yet unborn, and arise and tell them to their children, so that they should set their hope in God and not forget the works of God, but keep his commandments; and that they should not be like their fathers, a stubborn and rebellious generation, a generation whose heart was not steadfast, whose spirit was not faithful to God.”
Psalms 78:5-8
The passage speaks for itself. Parents should pray that their children follow in their godly footsteps. The parent’s life should be a testimony of the living Christ in them. Parents need to pray for their government to set the right laws not shifting to immorality. Parents are to show gratitude to God and not forget His works. The best example parents can give to their children is their commitment to love God by obeying His commandments.

WOL Marriage Devotion
anger in the marriage We always insist that the home is the first and most important place where our Christian virtues can grow. Our marriage and family relationship exhibits our true selves. The family is the place to exercise the Spirit’s fruit and overcome the flesh’s works, such as those we find in Galatians 5:19. One of the behaviors there that fits is “anger.” Couples experience anger and that is normal. Yes, anger is a human emotion that even Jesus experienced. However, Jesus did not sin in his anger. Anger is normal if it is for the right godly reasons and not for selfish personal gratifications. Fits of anger, with uncontrolled emotions, clearly do not belong in the life of a married couple…disciples of Christ. Once one is angry, spouses must control it and get rid of it as soon as possible. Some spouses take days if not weeks, until they subdue their sinful-fleshly emotions. However, the Bible says, “do not let the sun go down while you are still angry! We should never go to bed angry. Work out your disagreements on a daily basis, or resentment will begin to decay. If you can’t find a solution, submit to Godly counsel. There will always be times in a marriage where you can’t work out problems independently, so get help. Getting help is not a sign of weakness but of wisdom. Then in verses 22 and 23 the fruit of the Spirit is listed, among which self-control. So a life controlled by God’s Spirit will also display self-control, or put differently: Spirit-control. REFLECTION: How committed are you to restrain anger, and make peace before the sun goes down?
In your anger do not sin: Do not let the sun go down while you are still angry
