Summary: Knowing how to deal with ones own life, good or bad. Part of "Dealing With" series.
Dealing with Life A Bibles point of view.Part three How do we deal with the kiveing, others and ourselfs. Knowing how to deal with life is just as important as knowing how to deal with death. The life we lead on this earth, determines, how and where we spend eternity in the next life. Jesus said, that a man who believes on him ,even thou he be dead the same shall live again. He told us that he came to give life and to give it more abundantly. What is life? Life is a series of trial and error.A way of relateing to our present exsistance, spirit,heart, mind, and soul, of being. Life is a period of time that has been given to us by God to reconcile ourselves to Him throu Jesus. There is none of us that ever asked to be born . We made no decisions about our parents, color, race, sex, geographical location, wether to be rich or poor. This is who we are. We may not have the education of others, or we may not even be whole, we may be handicapted, lame, hault, blind or deaf.But the existance that we have ,is what we have to work with. You nor I can change our features or physical status, but we can learn to addapt throu the grace of God. Most people that I have met, make their life decisions on experience or change in the economy, geographical location, government or religious regulations. But if we make our decisions based upon the Bible then we will endure this life much better. Dealing with life is being abile to deal with decisions. Lets look at what Jesus says. John 11:9-10, .. Are there not 12 hours in the day? If any man walk in the day, he stumbleth not, because he seeth the light of this world. But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him. Jesus was talking about decisions of life and how a man has two ways of dealing with them. We can make our life decisions based upon the light of day, where by we can see clearly to make our decisions by the word of God, or we can make them by the darkness of this worlds systems. Our lives are full of decisions, who we marry, jobs, education, clothes, food ,transportation, where we live and who we associate with. But if you notice , there is a lot of complaining in this life, youve heard it, time and time again. If a man comes to you complaining that he has no shoes, remind him of the man who has no feet. That is dealing with life. If a man comes complaining that the bread that he has is two days old, remind him of the children that have no bread at all. Church, there is comming a time where all your decisions on life will be made for you, government officials will enact laws governing everything about your life, right down to your religion. Its even posiable for them to outlaw all religions to stop trouble between false religions and Christianity. Didnt Jesus say that, it was better to enter into life with one eye, than to have two eyes and be cast into hell fire? Matthew 18:8-9. The apostile Paul stated that, He learned that whatever state that he was in, to therewith to be content. We hafe to learn to deal with whatever state that were in. To be content, if we cant be content with what we have, how church, can God bless us with something better? If God cant trust you with 1 dollar, how can he trust you with 2? Are you looking for a perfict life here on earth, well your not going to get it, so we all hafe to deal with the reality that Jesus came to give life but he didnt say here. He said that, My kingdom is not on this earth, if it were, wouldnt my deciples fight? This life is a dressing room, a stageing ground, a stage, a training camp for something higher or lower depending on the decisions you make. We were born into this life for one reason only, it was for Gods good pleasure, and nothing else, can the clay tell the potter what it wants to be? No. So this is how we deal with life. We do the best we can with what God has given us and maby he will bless us with better, when we show him that we can take care of it. Remember these few things, some of the ways God answers prayer are these, 1.Yes. 2. No. 3. Maby ars.There is a fourth part, Dealing with Fear, if you want it posted, let me know. ars..
