Dr Charles Stanley’s In Touch Devotional 6 June 2024


Today’s Topic: Not Just About Us
When believers love each other well, people are drawn to Christ.

Scripture: Ephesians 4:25-32

25 Wherefore putting away lying, speak every man truth with his neighbour: for we are members one of another.

26 Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:

27 Neither give place to the devil.

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.

29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers.

30 And grieve not the holy Spirit of God, whereby ye are sealed unto the day of redemption.

31 Let all bitterness, and wrath, and anger, and clamour, and evil speaking, be put away from you, with all malice:

32 And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.

Imagine yourself sitting on a park bench enjoying a gorgeous day. You see two people walking toward each other, and they’re both distracted. One is looking down at a phone, thumbs flying over the screen. The other is juggling keys, a briefcase, and a cup of coffee. Before you can say anything, they run into each other. No one is hurt, but things crash to the ground and spill everywhere.

There are many ways this scene could play out. Each person could get angry at the other for not paying attention, or they could accept blame and apologize. They might even ignore each other and keep walking (though that’s highly unlikely). How they choose to react reveals what their character is—and has the potential to color onlookers’ opinions of them, for better or worse.

This is especially important with regard to those of us who follow Christ. Our behavior should reflect who we are becoming in Him and demonstrate that we are indeed transformed people. If we lash out in anger or frustration, we aren’t following Paul’s call to “be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven [us]” (Eph. 4:32). However, if we choose the way of peace, kindness, and compassion, others will see the Lord through us and be drawn to His light (Hebrews 12:14).

Bible in One Year: Job 22-25
