Jesus calls each one of us to follow him (John 15:16). All of God’s promises are yes to each one of us in Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20). We each get to share in Christ’s inheritance (Colossians 1:12) and as members of Christ’s united body we need each other (Romans 12:5). I warn you that you cannot do it alone. You need someone to talk to and if you have a weak heart you are going to fall by the way.
But we do not all have the same function (Romans 12:4). Each disciple, each individual member of the body, has a unique role. And each of us must lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him (1 Corinthians 7:17). Let me tell you this now before it is too late. Many people skip lanes and cause a mess of confusion in the race. I admonish you to find your lane and stay there until you are given the all clear to get on your mark. There are too many false starts on this Christian race and it is creating lots of trouble and insecurities on the way. All you have to to is be yourself . Remember that Jesus is the potter and we are the clay. As I write to you I rather be a helper along the way rather that sit in the seat of an office not understanding the purpose or mission of the office. Recently I read where an 18 years old opened a clinic in Florida and was practicing as an OB/GYN doctor. That was trouble with misdiagnosis and then death of a person. He was later arrested by law enforcement. What can we learn from this lesson.
The question, “What is that to you?” is one you and I need to ask frequently. How God deals with other people is often of excessive concern to us, especially if their paths don’t seem to be paved with the same pain as ours. I have a testimony and I pray God that He allows me to tell it when ever the time is appropriate. Being a leader is not an easy job, and it can be very problematic at times. You have to realize that you have other souls in your hands. I am very mindful of what I write and how I minster to you. God will bring every word into judgement and none shall be without excuse. Here in this email I am trying to show you that Jesus took Peter and showed him the way. It was hard but the message was clear as it still is today.
The fallen part of our nature doesn’t look at others and glory in how each of them uniquely bears the imago dei [Image of God] (Genesis 1:27). It doesn’t revel in their distinctive refraction of God’s multifaceted glory. It doesn’t rejoice in the sweet Providences God grants to them. It is not grateful for the blessings of their God-given strengths. It does not want to deal gently with their weaknesses (Hebrews 5:2). Full of pride and selfish ambition, our fallen nature uses others to gauge our own significance, how successful and impressive we perceive ourselves to be. The time is now that we have to stop looking at others and accept our own sorry state and see what God can do with it. To late shall be our cry. I thank God for the understanding of His word today and for opening up the energies earth, air and fire to His children. Thank you Lord and God bless you richly
