Topic: WHO WILL GO FOR GOD? 1
Bible Reading: Matthew 21:28-30
📖28….”But what think ye? A certain man had two sons; and he came to the first, and said, Son, go work to day in my vineyard.
📖29….He answered and said, I will not: but afterward he repented, and went.
📖30….And he came to the second, and said likewise. And he answered and said, I go, sir: and went not.”
🔥In every Church today, there are these two kinds of people. There are people whose YES is NO, and there are people whose NO is YES. These people are neither cold nor hot…Revelation 3:15-16. But to be reckoned with by God in the faith, we have to be either hot or cold. Else we will be spewed out by God. In Matthew 5:37, we are instructed by the word of God that our communication should be, Yea, Yea; Nay, Nay: for whatsoever is more than these comes from evil. The question here is, did the behaviour of the two sons of the man in our text from Matthew 21:28-30 above, fall into yea, yea, and nay, nay? Emphatic NO!
🔥🔥The two sons’ communication to their father in Matthew 21:28-30, didn’t satisfy the recommended communication of Jesus in Matthew 5:37. Even though the first son later went, having first said no, he still didn’t conform to Christian ethics. This is because, by his negative communication to his father at first, the father must have felt disappointed in him before his later change of mind. Same with the second son who encouraged the father with a deceptive positive answer. In Matthew 21:31, the first son was approved, because he later went, but what stopped him from saying yes at first?
🔥🔥🔥Beloveth, before Isaiah saw the Lord in chapter 6, he had been a prophet from chapters 1 to 5. But as soon as he accepted God’s sanctification in verses 6 and 7 of chapter 6, God knew that his yes, would be yes. So, it was no surprise to the Godhead when Isaiah responded positively to the call of who would go for God in verse 8. Isaiah volunteered to go, even without knowing the danger of the message. He knew God would be with him, so he was rest assured. Beloved child of God, to go for God today, is to obey God’s commands faithfully through our Churches. Be sanctified for God, so you can become an accepted vessel in His hands.
🙏Almighty Father, control my tongue from being used by the enemy to work out his desire and purpose through me, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏Heavenly father, let my submission to you always give a yes answer to wherever you want to send me to, in Jesus’ name.
🙏🙏🙏Precious Redeemer, incline me with your Spirit, and sanctify me by your word, to be ready to do anything you request of me, in Jesus’ name.
