Daily Fountain 2017 - A Brother's Keeper







Tuesday May 16

Bible Reading:     Gen. 14: 13 - 16
Topic:         A Brother's Keeper

When Abram heard that his nephew had been taken captive by the alliance of four Kings, he armed his 318 trained servants and went in pursuit of the people.

Abram attacked the Kings and liberated all the captives taken from Sodom including the King and his nephew Lot.

Abram had a house full of trained soldiers who attended to other duties until they were needed for war.

This is an important spiritual lesson.

The Lord wants us to be combat ready always.

Paul enjoined Christians should in Eph. 6: 10 - 18 to put on the whole Armour of God and stand in readiness always for battle against all the powers of darkness.

We will be ready to avenge all disobedience only as we walk in complete obedience.

We can do this by always avoiding sin, praying continually, studying the Word of God, living out the life of a true believer and witnessing  for Christ.

If you do these things, you will be a battle ready Christian and you will never fall.

Prayer:

Stand up, stand up for Jesus
Stand in His Strength alone
The arm of flesh will fail you
You dare not trust your own
Put on the Gospel armour
Each piece put on with prayer
When duty calls or danger
Be never wanting there

Memory Verse:   Gen. 14: 22

"And when Abram heard that his brother was taken captive, he armed his trained servants, born in his own house, three hundred and eighteen, and pursued them unto Dan"
