Topic: Best Of The Lots [14/6/2016]
Text: James 1:18
God is an intelligent God, and His creation, intelligent also. Taking a very close look at animals, including fishes and insects, and plants, you will be amazed how intelligent they are. The stem of a yam plant does not need too much direction before finding the stake that is pegged close to it. That's intelligence at work. Scriptures tell us alot about the ant. Proverbs 30:24-25 says this about them: "there be four things which are little upon the earth, but they are exceeding wise: the ants are a people not strong, yet they prepare their meat in the summer."
There are other animals whose wisdom were extolled in the Bible.
For all the intelligence of animals and plants, man is the best and most intelligent of God's creation. But sometimes, you wonder why a man will so debase himself to foolish acts like bestiality, homosexuality among others. The simple answer is that they have not encountered the wisdom of God. They have not encountered the peak of intelligence that's from above.
I am not judging these folks. In fact, I love them so much. And we all must love them just like God loves them. This love should propel us to reach out to them and bring them to share in the intelligence and wisdom that comes from God. We are best among the lots because we have encountered God's intelligence. They need our help, and the church must reach out to the lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community to bring them into the light.
Keep winning daily.
Dear loving Father, I thank You for bringing me into Your intelligence and wisdom that have been my guides. I pray for the lesbians, gays, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community in the world; that Your light, intelligence and wisdom may shine in their hearts, delivering them from the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of Your Son, in Jesus name. Amen.
