Theme: You Will Be Misjudged
Passage: Acts 28:1-4
Great and magnified dangers and distresses often befall gracious persons. Apostle Paul escaped a shipwreck. Getting to the shore comes a viper that fastened upon his hand. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all (Psalm 34:17). Another Challenge is misjudgment that followed in Vs4; the barbarians called Paul a murderer.
We are living in a generation whereby people can easily misjudge your character, personality or lifestyle. You have to stand for what you believe, which is the testimony of our Lord Jesus Christ. Note that the mind of man is mutable; people are constant in their esteem and opinion of men.
As a believer you can’t escape being misjudged by fellow believers, neighbours, colleagues, friends, spouse or parents; just ensure that you are on the right track. Happy is that Child of God whose righteousness is attested by the fact that vipers of sin cannot harm him.
Some will misjudge God’s miracle upon you, your success; God’s grace upon you, your ideas, opinion; and the gift of God in your life. So many times you hear people say “I know he/she will fail; I am aware his business will collapse; I am sure from the beginning that you won’t make anything out of life.” Just hold onto God the decider of your fate and you will be celebrated eventually.
MEMORY VERSE: ACTS 28:4 “So when the natives saw the creature hanging from his hand, they said to one another, “No doubt this man is a murderer, whom, though he has escaped the sea, yet justice does not allow to live.”
HYMN: MHB 485 – I’M not ashamed to own my Lord.
PRAYER: Let all men be liars and let you be true Lord. Help me to maintain a stronger relationship with you at all times in all situations.
