What We Should Do As Children of God: Gospel Today Devotional - 6th November, 2023

Instructions are very important if we must do things the right way and also get the needed results for doing things the right way. Take, for instance, parents telling their children what to do and what not to do. 

What We Should Do As Children of God: Gospel Today Devotional - 6th November, 2023

Sometimes, the children are told not to allow a stranger in or not to even talk to one. Other times, they are instructed not to go to a particular place or make friends with people that they consider not too good for them. And as children, those instructions must be obeyed.

Let's also remember that we are children of the Almighty God and just as our earthly parents give us instructions, God through the scripture has given us certain instructions as well. Let's see the passage of scripture below,

"Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it" (Psalm 34:14).

We need to see some of the instructions God through his word has given us. Also, what we shall be considering today is just one out of the many scriptural instructions that we have. Glory to God. What are we to do as children of God?

The first thing according to our anchor text is that we are to depart from evil. This is very important. We are to do away with, stay away from, and never get involved in evil things (things that are totally against the command of God). Then it says we are to do good. As children of God, we are not to be tired of doing good to people.

If we can help, let us do so. We are also not to repay evil with evil. God who is our Father is good and we must act and live just like him who has begotten us. Finally, it says that we should seek peace, and pursue it. There are two things here, first, it is to seek peace. We are to desire it and strive for it, as though we search for it. As much as it is within our power, and that, by the grace of God, we are to seek peace. It doesn't just end with the desire, we are to pursue it, that is, make sure we live peaceably, and that, with all men. The scripture says to follow peace with all men (Hebrews 12:14) and this we must do. The Lord bless his word in our hearts today. Amen.

Daily Nugget: The thing expected of us as children of God is that we obey the instructions that he gives. This is proof that we are indeed his children.
