Summary: Our job is to lead them to the trough, not make them drink from it! Jesus said; Just lift me up and I will draw all men unto me! God knows how they are, and He loves them anyways, that's what grace is all about! Shouldnt we try to do the same?
Love em, like He Loves em!
When someone has a tough task to do, the first thing that they usually want is, someone to help them with it,
And the more someone is willing to help, the better
No one usually wants to do everything on there own, except when it comes to the things of the church and God.
For better or worse, for whatever reason, some just choose to trudge thru life without Him,
Sure, when a catastrophe strikes they may call out to Him and make shallow promises,
Though serious at the time, somehow they never end up being kept.
It doesnt matter the circumstance, God wants us to come to Him, in our time of need and is willing to accept us, just as we are.
There are so many things He wants to do for all of us, things He is ready, willing and able to do on a moments notice,
Always ready to respond, even if its only when we need something!
The only thing He is waiting for, is for us to call out in faith and ask Him to do them!!
It makes you wonder, why so many people try to go through life without Him, facing one thing after another on their own?
Ps. 68:19 NKJ.
19. Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
The God of our salvation! Selah
Blessed be the Lord,
Who daily loads us with benefits,
He doesnt just throw His children a bone now and then, He is a generous God of more than enough!
Even when were not always the same way with Him, He is always the same to us!
He's faithful to us,
Because He Loves us that much!
Ps. 103:1-5 NKJ.
1. Bless the LORD, O my soul;
And all that is within me, bless His holy name!
2. Bless the LORD, O my soul,
And forget not all His benefits:
3. Who forgives all your iniquities,
Who heals all your diseases,
4. Who redeems your life from destruction,
Who crowns you with loving kindness and tender mercies,
5. Who satisfies your mouth with good things, So that your youth is renewed like the eagles
As we read this, we can tell that David was excited, who in the world wouldnt be,
Because He knew first hand, about the benefits from having a relationship with the Lord!
So many have never really given God a chance to work in their lives,
We live in a micro wave society, if it doesnt happen like we think it should,
in the time frame we think it should, bam its off to something else, more exciting.
The more you get to know the Lord, the more you find this to be true,
Knowing God and having a relationship with Him, is a fasten your seatbelt experience, an exciting adventure!
So many people think that religion is boring, and their right, religion is Boring!
A lot of people are born again, but their bored out of their gourd,
That was me at one time, thats the average person on the street to,
Thing is though, they don't know a cultivated relationship with God, through His Son Jesus, is anything But Boring!!
Its as exciting as it gets, or should I say, as exciting as you want it to get!
If more people knew the whole story of Gods grace, instead of just the bits and pieces that have leaked out and they think they know,
Let me tell you, if they were to experience the favor and grace of God, first hand for themselves,
There would not be enough room in any church in this town or the next, to hold the crowds.
People flock to new religions all over the world, most dont even know about the old ones, or the one true God.
so many dont know for themselves,
they know what everyone else knows, which clearly isnt the whole story,
Because if it was, they would be singing a different song, than the one the world is singing!
but if they were to seek it out for themselves,
They would find out, that its a new and constant adventure everyday, if you want it to be, when youre a friend of Jesus.
The bible, so many own one, so few realize the power that it contains, Gods Word is Amazing
John 1:1 KJ
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
*Gods words have power,
*Gods words are life,
*Gods word will change your life if you will let it!
Its time we started thanking Him and taking Him at His word.
We dont have to wonder why, people are the way they are,
Our job is to lead them to the trough, not make them drink from it!
