SATURDAY, MAY 11
Scripture: Matthew 10:12-13
Matthew 10:12-13 says, “And when you go into a household, greet it. If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you.” The early church had peace with God. They knew Who they represented and what they had to offer! This goes back to the Abrahamic covenant as the foundation. The Lord said to Abraham, ‘Get out of your country from your kindred and from your father’s house to a land I will show you…I will bless those who bless you and I will curse him who curses you…’ A plumbline is where God treats people exactly as they treat us! When we say yes to Him, we become His plumbline of righteousness. A plumbline is a yardstick. God declares He will measure to the world what they measure to His people. We become God’s yardstick. God treats people exactly as they treat us! When people receive us, they receive Him. And when they reject us, they reject Him and therefore God treats them accordingly. We become a literal walking plumbline. We carry the peace of God and dispense it to those who honor God! Most of us don’t consider the magnitude of tribulation, adversity and death that we carry and how much like Abraham we really are. Death and life can reside in our tongue, just like Jesus! Dominion demands a demonstration but its origin has to be in the Holy Spirit! Walking in the Spirit in the last days will be a demonstration of God’s dominion!
