Time for repair

Scriptural readings Genesis 1:1-2; Romans 8:38-39;28

I am once again fascinated with what God and the Lord Jesus Christ has been doing in my life and I would like to give Him all the honor and glory. In the same manner, being a Christian it would be good thing for me to share things that God has given and shown me… His Words and wisdom.

Genesis 1:1

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

To create is to make something out from nothing and to create is the ability that only God can do. He has been showing me the wonders of His creation. He has once again strengthen my faith. He is constantly reminding me that whatever things may come my way He is in control of it because He created things with a purpose. He created you and I.

Genesis 1:2

And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of the God moved upon the face of the water.

I do not think that God created the earth with out form and void and with darkness. I do believe that in between verses 1 and 2 something happened and God has to do some creating but majority restoring. The same manner that some or maybe many of us think that we humans which is God’s creation is now in between verses 1 and 2. God is restoring us one way or the other and we have to respond to this. Let us be thankful to our Lord Jesus who promised us that He will never leave us or forsake us.

Romans 8:38

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Romans 8:39

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

We might be facing some restoration at this point of time. We have to be patient. God has created us.

Romans 8:28

And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to [his] purpose.

We are His creation and we have a purpose. He is restoring, reinstating and even re enforcing the whole things in us that we missed.

Let God continue to restore us form inside out that He may continue what He has started in us. Amen!

Does it fit you?

Scriptural readings: Acts 9:16, Phil 1:20-21, Luke 18:25,28-30

Acts 9:16

For I will shew him how great things he must suffer for my name’s sake.

This is how Paul was fitted in his life after he met the lord Jesus Christ and from then on he became a christian. A chosen vessel for our lord to bear His name for everyone of us. Isn’t terrifying to know that we are facing a lot of suffering. WE ARE NO DIFFERENT from Paul. He followed Jesus Christ and so do we and we will SUFFER FOR HIM too!

Phil 1:20-21

v.20 According to my earnest expectation and [my] hope, that in nothing I shall be ashamed, but [that] with all boldness, as always, [so] now also Christ shall be magnified in my body, whether [it be] by life, or by death.

v.21 21 For to me to live [is] Christ, and to die [is] gain.

What is this thing that after following Him and then to suffer and at the end to die is to gain? What is good about this? Nobody wants to suffer! Why is the apostle Paul thrilled about leaving our world?

Luke 18:25

Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”

We live in a temporal world relating to worldly as opposed to spiritual affairs. There is nothing wrong with gaining much of these things that we deserve to have. As a matter of fact, Jesus said He will double the talents you are having but Jesus NEVER WANTS us TO TRUST in these temporal things.

These things can be taken from us at any time AND ONLY GOOD IN THIS WORLD!. The suffering that we are having is the FEAR OF LOSING THESE TEMPORAL THINGS WE HAVE.

Luke 18:28-30

v.28 Peter said to him, “We have left all we had to follow you!”

v.29-30 “Truly I tell you,” Jesus said to them, “no one who has left home or wife or brothers or sisters or parents or children for the sake of the kingdom of God v. 30 will fail to receive many times as much in this age, and in the age to come eternal life.”

Now there is the reason why we should be more than thrilled to follow Jesus, suffer for Him and to die for Him is to gain.

Does it fit you?

Heavenly Father give us all the reason to know Jesus more. Grant us the strength through the power of your Holy Spirit to follow Him and endure the pain of suffering as we hold on to your promises of blessings come eternal life. In Jesus name we pray. Amen!
