The question is what will you and I do when a moment like this appears in our lives? When we come face to face with those who God chose. He chose to give us newness of life, he chose to love us even though there was no reason to. Even though according to his standard there is no way that we can be saved, unless he gave his son, unless he pays the price that we should have paid. That is grace and to survive and flourish in marriage is grace.
The question is what will you and I do when a moment like this appear in our lives? When we come face to face with those who have wronged us and walked away hoping that we would die? What will we do? Will we allow the good in us to rise and get to work? Or will be allow the bad of us to take over?
Worship is at the very heart of the Bible, one of the reasons why God gave us the Bible is so that we may see His wondrous works and worship Him!
There are many good things in life, many big pearls, and God has given you some. But still there is a restlessness and you are searching to find more. You are selling and buying, and you not done trading yet. What is outstanding?
The rule of Christ in the life of a believer may have a small beginning, but because of progress now, it will end in a complete transformation.
“He who begin a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” – Philippians 1:6.
Therefore never loose hope!
A profound question that arises in every generation – Where does evil come from? Why does it persist? If Jesus triumphed over evil on the cross, then why is it flourish today? And a lot of conversations – is the world getting better or worse?
You love the Lord Jesus Christ and with great expectation you want to plant the Word of God into the lives of other people.
But what happens when the Word of God is sown? Jesus tells us in the Parable of the Sower what to expect.
God speaks to our life, to the realities of this life in this world as it is, a world where we see the face of evil in hatred, in violence, in injustice, and in abuse.
And we have to live in this world where God says, “Live peaceably with all”.
There is one way to peace with God for those who are far and those who are near, one hope for those who are rich and those who are poor, one sacrifice for all, one Saviour whose arms are open to everyone who will humble themselves in faith and repentance and come to Jesus Christ in humility.
“Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord.” (Romans 12:11) When evil is on the rise, the natural effect is to become jaded. But God says; Don’t grow cold, but keep yourself on fire serving the Lord!
