Be Good To People

2018-12-11 | 🔗
In this message, Victoria will explain that the God has has called us to always show respect to others. The Scripture says that “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power, and…he went around doing good and healing all who were under the power of the devil, because God was with him” (Acts 10:38 NIV). He was empowered to do good. And in doing good, He brought healing everywhere He went. The good news is that you and I have been anointed to do good as well, whether we feel loving or not! We’ve been empowered by the Holy Spirit to bring healing to people and to promote the good news of Jesus Christ!

Hi. This is Victoria. Thank you. So much for downloading this podcast, I believe got, has got amazing things in your future. I hope you enjoy this message. Mine is today to begin to people. We have to be good to people, see people matter to God, people matter most to God, and it's so easy. These days find things that we disagree on, there's so much information, there are so many things Worley. Then we can easily find things that we disagree, on you know you'll, never been agree, one hundred percent of the time with any one. But the point that we?
need to make in our life to guide the things that we need to do is continue to show respect for people. We have to show respect whether we agree with people or not. when we show respect you know what we're doing. We are honouring God and we're promoting the gospel, we're promoting the good whose we're saying God our respect, these people, because they matter U I went, I show respect I'm showing the Good NEWS I am promoting the gospel on these are seen as a believer. The truth is people, don't really care what you say: they don't care. If you go to church every Sunday. If you're, honest, you don't lie, you don't steal. You dont cheat.
You know, I get their attention, it's what you do, it's not what you say, but it's what you do in fact it's what you do through say that makes the difference you know, especially in church in the church. We should make sure that we don't have petty disagreements through the church, no matter what your beliefs are in the church of Jesus Christ. we should stand under the umbrella of the blood of Jesus Christ. All right. We should be in unity, because that makes a difference to the people who aren't believers. That's what's going to cause them to believe, that's! What's going to get their attention.
You know I have seen believers laterally argue over the different translations of the Bible Sea were better than that we'd better than that we can state again It's not what you know. It's what you do, it's how you act. It's how you show your face. How do you express your Faye? Listen to what it says in violations by sixteen? It says in Christ, Jesus there's! No, there is neither circumcision are non circumcision. None of that has any value. The only thing that counts is based Expressing itself through love that scripture is saying, you may know a lot of stuff.
You may know all the rules- and you may know, had a look really good and say the right things, but that is not where the value is the value in God's eyes, is us expressing our faith in him through love to People, that's what I get people's attention and that's what pleases? God! You know some people are more difficult to love than other people, and that's just bottom line see it's easy to love people about love. You
for that. I agree with you see things the way you do, but there will always be people that are more difficult to laugh, and so, let's just talk about that amendment, because that's the thing that we probably need to work on the most its loving in say, see. Sometimes you have to love in Faye see Jesus was empowered on this are by the Holy Spirit is that he was empowered to do good, see everywhere, Jesus when he did He did good, he was in power, he was annoyed kid with power to do good, and you know in doing good. He brought Healy everywhere. He went. And you and I have been anointed to do good
We ve been anointed to bring he'll into this are to promote the Good NEWS of Jesus. Christ That's what you're anointing does it bring God on the thing it brings got on the same, so we have to step back in this time of division and and discord in disagreement, and we have to say what is my purpose. My purpose is to further the gospel. My purpose is not to in my opinion out there I can do more through law than I can spreading my opinion because it one word
the expression of love, and when you are lobbying, when you are making conscious decision to express your faith in God through Love, God is working in your life are rather quotas, as this is his pay acts before it feels bay acts before it feels you see, our flesh was to feel it. We want a like you because you're like me, but the Spirit faith.
The things of gods, I am going to love in thing. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt. I'm gonna! Remember that God loves you and you matter to guide you see, that's what fate says feeling say no way bait says unless amassed. This is something that happened to me when I was in the sixth grade, and I never forgot this I was just coming from launch. I was in junior high school, I was walking down the hall and this girl. I think she was. eighth grade. I had never even seen her before I didn't know the girl. I've never talked to her. She walks up to me and she says I'm going to beat you up and I was like why.
She said I like the way you act. I looked at her and I said I'll change. Do you know that girl looked at me turned around and walked off and I never saw her again. I never saw her again it's kind of interesting that that's what up out of me. I guess I didn't want to get beat up now. Mom, I'm for a split second change in aren't, even though you are you don't even know, but thank God that's what came up, because I look back now and I think that simple answer that simple answer of humility brought healing because think about this just a minute. If you disagree with someone
or if someone does like, you are someone's causing you trouble and you act the same way to then. Maybe you disrespect then nothing changes, nothing changes, you're, gonna dislike them, they're gonna dislike you is much are more than ever before nothing changes, but when you make a choice to love but by two eggs ass: your love for God by loving other people. The potential for change is huge and I believe, the attitudes of our heart change. We we just like those people less and less and less when we choose to express our pay through love. That's why the Bible says: pray for your enemies.
Pray for those who do wrong against you. You say you may have some relationships in your life that will never change those people, no matter how kind you are there will never be Don t you they'll never show you the respect that you showing them. They may never change, but I can tell you this. You ll change your change and that's matters the most to God. God is not going to ask us how many people we changed. He's going to ask us: did we change? Did we walk in love? Did we express our faith through love? Because that's what's going to change everybody around us? That's what's going to change
everyone around us. So when you do good, let me change that then you're not only do in other people s favour, because you can't argue with somebody who will argue back you're, not only doing them a favor and promoting love and healing you're doing yourself a favor you're, changing your breaking down walls and barriers that would like to keep you limited. God will do great things in your life. He will enrich you when you choose to express your faith in life, listen to what it says in proverbs, one thousand one hundred and seventeen
It is those who are kind benefit themselves. One version says your own: soul is nourished when you're kind see when you're good to people you're, nourishing your own soul, you're, bringing Healy to them. If you love God today, if you want to live for him, then you need to step back in this world full of conflict and say I'm going to begin to express my faith in God by loving people, especially those difficult, unlovable people. You see you can do more
by your actions, then you can buy your words. I want to encourage you to day to look for opportunities to be good, not only those who are difficult, but those who are you in your own backyard. Maybe it's your co worker, maybe it's the man that most alone are maybe it's a family member that can use your help. The scripture says: don't with whole good when it's in your power and listen you're anointed to do good. You have the power to treat people right, whether you agree with them or not, and if you love God, God when you to use that same law, An express it through thanks to all those around him, because that's where the healing comes in a man,
