See People as God’s Creation
Main Text: Acts 9: 13-15 (KJV)
“Then Ananias answered, lord, i have heard by many of this man, how much evil he halt done to thy saints at Jerusalem “and here he hath authority from the chief priest to bind all that call on thy name, “but the lord said unto him go thy way unto me to bear my name before the gentiles and kings, and the children of Israel”.
1 Thessalonians 1:2 – We always thank God for all of you and continually mention you in our prayers.
Saul’s encounter with the Lord on his way to Damascus brought about tremendous change to his Christian faith. Unknown to the Christian he persecuted that he was a chosen vessel unto the Lord to bear the name of Christ to the Gentiles, but in their eyes he was seen as a murderer.
Rehab was a harlot in the eyes of her people but she was used to save her household from destruction. Jephtha was the son of a harlot but was a deliverer, I can go on and on, God does not see our weaknesses and flaws alone, but He sees the potentials and virtues in us with which He makes use of to fulfill his purpose in our lives.
We should then see people as God’s sees them by not dwelling only on the weakness but also on virtues and potentials God has deposited in them; by so doing God will be glorified.
