Daily Walk With Christ – COCIN Devotional MONDAY 6TH MARCH 2023.
SUB-THEME: INDICES OF LACK OF PEACE
TEXT: 2 TIMOTHY 3:3-5.
3. without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good,
4. treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God.
5. having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with such people. Mat 18:17 Rom 16:17 2Th 3:6 Tit 3:10 2Jn 1:10
Brutality is a cruel and rutless behaviour or treatment. A brutal person is vicious, uncontrollable and inhumane towards others. Paul warns that brutality will increase in the last days (v.1). Recently; there are reports of unprecedented cases of brutality in homes, where husbands beat, butchered and dismembered their wives. The world awoke to the grusome murder of Deborah Samuel in Sokoto and the heinous attack on church worshippers in Owo, both in Nigeria. Without contest or doubt, such savages are not at peace with themselves let alone with God. Scripture condemns brutality (v.5). Are you brutal? Repent and surrender your life to Jesus. He will deliver you from being a savage.
Brutality does not solve any problem.
Father, forgive me of every form of cruelty, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
MEMORY VERSE FOR THE MONTH: JAMES 4:1
What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?.
