GOOD OR BAD HABITS?
By Prophet T.B Bondera
Acts.17.2 – Then Paul, as his custom was, went in to them, and for three Sabbaths reasoned with them from the Scriptures,
Acts.17.3 – explaining and demonstrating that the Christ had to suffer and rise again from the dead, and saying, “This Jesus whom I preach to you is the Christ.”
It was the habit of Paul to visit the synagogue of the Jews in whatever town that he visited or passed through. He would explain the Scriptures to the locals pointing out to them that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. He did the same thing when he went to Antioch and many believed and received Jesus Christ as their Lord and personal Saviour. (Acts 13: 14 – 49).
Whilst we read in the Scriptures of the good habit of Paul of preaching the Gospel with boldness wherever he went turning many to Christ, we also read in the same Scripture of the bad habit of Judas Iscariot of stealing money from the church coffers. (John 12:6). Both are Apostles, one is bringing many to Christ the other one is stealing money from the church. These two cases are a clear example of the Christians we have in the church today. On one hand we have those who are in the good habit of bringing many to Christ and supporting the work of God whole heartedly with all that they have. On the other hand we have those whose habit is to “steal” from the church through spreading rumours, causing confusion in departments, discouraging others from supporting the work of God, kicking other out of church etc.
As you prepare to go to church today, examine your habits: are you building the Body of Christ or you are stealing from it?
👉🏿1Cor.15.33 – Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts good habits.”
💥Every bad habit, OUT OF MY LIFE…!!!
