Romans 15:1 (NET) But we who are strong ought to bear with the failings of the weak, and not just please ourselves.
From her grandmother to her sisters and brothers in the choir, everyone was disappointed in Tiffany. “She has left the faith”, Mrs. Mcclusky said with so much sadness in her voice. She was Tiffany’s discipler.
Tiffany used to be a worship leader in the church until the choir pastor got wind of her album deal and suspended indefinitely. This emboldened her to leave the church altogether and go deeper into the world.
Thankfully, because she used to be in the prayer band, some of the members never stopped praying for her. They would raise a prayer for her every week. They would sometimes weep and groan while interceding for her. They insisted that they were not going to lose her.
While they continued to pray, she continued to go deeper into the world and became more popular and celebrated by the world, but they did not give up. They knew she was under strong demonic pressure.
One morning, she was flying in a private jet to a private island belonging to her boyfriend when the aircraft entered into a thunderstorm that affected the electrical system of the jet. The airplane was going to crash in a matter of minutes. At this point, Tiffany started thinking about her life and eternal destiny. She was so sure she was going to die that day that she started repenting of all her sins. Her life flashed before her eyes and she saw that she had been living a vain and hollow life. This was the turning point for her. Fortunately, the plane did not crash but landed safely. Tiffany called her grandma that morning and told her she was coming back home. She repented of her sins, went to rehab, started attending Bible study discipleship class, and was totally submitted to the authority of the church.
Even though she had millions of followers on social media, she deleted her social media accounts and went ‘off the grid’ for one year. She spent the year building herself up on her most Holy Faith.
Tiffany was not lost forever because some people never ceased to pray for her.
Is there someone around you who might have strayed away? Don’t give up on them. Pray for them. Remember that the effectual heartfelt prayer of the righteous avails much. One of the most effective ways we bear each other’s burden is in the place of heartfelt prayers.
Go into today remembering that one of our most important duties as priests to God is to make intercession for the weaker people around us.
Prayer: Lord, give me a heart that truly loves. Help me be a reason why souls would not be lost forever, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
