SCRIPTURE: The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courage of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with him. Acts 4:13 (The Passion Translation)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Who you hang around with determines what hangs on you.
In life, the company you keep has a lot to do with the faith in your heart and the outcome of your life. The company you keep, who you call friend, who speaks into your life, affects your faith and ultimately affects your destiny. You can’t be the friend of a doubter, and be a believer. By being with Jesus, Peter and John stepped into a brutal dimension of faith.
Acts 4:13 says,
Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Who you hang around with determines what hangs on you. Who you hang out with affects what can hang on your life. I don’t have one single friend who is a doubter. The people I associate with are those who do extra-usual, abnormal, supra ordinary things. I cannot tolerate the company of a doubter. I can’t stand someone who has a microscopic mentality. I don’t have the patience for that. No one makes small plans around me.
There was a generational faith transfer from the grandmother of Timothy to his mother and then to Timothy himself.
2 Timothy 1:5 says,
When I call to remembrance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also.
Beware of who you even call, father, because your father can determine your feather spiritually. Be careful the kind of company you keep.
Remember this: Who you hang around with determines what hangs on you.
1. By all means, avoid the wrong company.
2. Keep the right, positive and godly company.
PRAYER: Father, I ask for the grace to keep godly and positive company. Help me to disconnect from every negative influence in my life, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
