Topic: *LEAD DONT PUSH*
1 Corinthians 10:25-33 King James Version (KJV)
25 Whatsoever is sold in the shambles, that eat, asking no question for conscience sake:
26 For the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof.
27 If any of them that believe not bid you to a feast, and ye be disposed to go; whatsoever is set before you, eat, asking no question for conscience sake.
28 But if any man say unto you, this is offered in sacrifice unto idols, eat not for his sake that shewed it, and for conscience sake: for the earth is the Lord's, and the fulness thereof:
29 Conscience, I say, not thine own, but of the other: for why is my liberty judged of another man's conscience?
30 For if I by grace be a partaker, why am I evil spoken of for that for which I give thanks?
31 Whether therefore ye eat, or drink, or whatsoever ye do, do all to the glory of God.
32 Give none offence, neither to the Jews, nor to the Gentiles, nor to the church of God:
33 Even as I please all men in all things, not seeking mine own profit, but the profit of many, that they may be saved.
Hallelujah!!! Beloved, Paul lived a life to be able to please all men by not making their conscience fight against them because of his words and acts.
He lived by their level of Christian knowledge. He didn't act like he knew so much and could do anything he wanted. He was mindful of the spiritual position of all he dealt with.
Paul's aim was for everybody to be saved and for everybody to enjoy his Christianity, level of knowledge in Jesus Christ and progress steadily in this knowledge as they mature in the Lord.
So Paul will teach them and allow them to learn and grow into what our Father wants but will not force them or push them into it by his words and actions.
Beloved, Jesus led all he encountered this way when He was on earth. He dealt with everybody in a way that will lead them to salvation so they may have life and have it more abundantly.
*ITS ALL ABOUT JESUS* and no one else. Beloved let us live our lives as Jesus and Paul did. We don't have to push people into what we feel or know is right. Let us lead them into it as they learn and mature into it so that they will live what we lead them into not by force or by fear but by understanding and in joy.
Prayer: Daddy please give us the spirit of peace and gentleness to lead people in your Kingdom gently. Also give us a teachable spirit so we can learn and mature into the zones we need to get into that your name will be glorified always. In the mighty name of Jesus I pray. Amen.
_EXHIBIT YOUR FAITH IN CHRIST JESUS AND THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY SHALL SURELY REWARD YOU_
