Topic: Be Mindful of Your True Nature! – by Pastor Raphael


Text: Ephesians 4:28

“Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.” Ephesians 4:28

Being conscious of your divine nature keeps you from evil. You become the righteousness of God when you are born again (2 Corinthians 5:21). It is expected that the inward transformation will reflect on the outside through Christlike behavior. Stealing isn’t part of the new nature of the Christian, because he or she is now a new creation of God (2 Corinthians 5:17).

They now have divine grace to work with their hands or gifts so that they can be a blessing to someone else. It is better to give and be a blessing than steal or do anything criminal, thereby attracting a curse and becoming a nuisance to society.

Dear beloved, meditate on your new nature of righteousness, peace, holiness, love, and joy, and you will become useful to God and society. Hallelujah!

You are an overcomer!


Dear heavenly Father, thank you for your Word. Thank you for giving me the grace to work with my hands and gifts in order to be a blessing to others. Amen!

Confusion and all that satan represents shall not have dominion over me. Romans 6:14
