November 25th 2015 – No More Excuses

2015-11-25-02-22-39--781274856

“I tell the truth in Christ, I am not lying, my conscience also bearing me witness in the Holy Spirit, that I have great sorrow and continual grief in my heart. For I could wish that I myself were accursed from Christ for my brethren, my countrymen according to the flesh,” (Romans 9:1-3 )

The Apostle Paul’s legacy endures as a challenge for us to re-think our obligation toward others. He was willing to make a sacrifice of his own life so that others could know Jesus. Are you willing? Whether we want to admit it or not, Christians place conditions on compliance. I will do this or that as long as it falls within certain limits. What conditions did Jesus place on His love and His willingness to sacrifice?

Here’s a common situation… a homeless man asking for a little cash… how do you react? “If I give that homeless man a few dollars, he may go and buy alcohol or drugs. I don’t want to be an enabler.” Yeah, maybe he will buy those things, but what if you share Jesus and pray for him? Jesus died for that man just as he died for you. God took the action for you to claim the opportunity. Friend, be an enabler… enable others with the choice – Jesus… yes or no?

What about sharing with that long time friend, a family member or passing acquaintance? How will they react? If your friend or family member were drowning would you be considering their reaction before throwing a life line to them? Of course not! I say let’s hang up the excuses and get beyond comfortable.

Followers of Jesus should care and be willing to sacrifice for those that do not know Jesus as their Savior.

Prayer

Heavenly Father, Thank You for saving me. Please soften my heart towards others and give me a deep caring for them. Open up opportunities for me to share and help me to be faithful to do so. In Jesus’ precious name, Amen.

Invitation

Lost or Love? That is the ultimate decision you will have to make. Jesus died on the cross for you and me. He loves us and wants to help us. If you have not asked Jesus to be your Lord and Savior please click here 4 Simple Steps to Jesus Your life will never be the same…

    “Our Holy Father (Ps. 99:3,5,9; 8), draw us into You GOOD PRESENCE with grateful spirits for what You have done for each of us in sending Jesus to die for our personal wrongs against You, for You are the GOOD and MERCIFUL God, our creator, and we not ourselves (Ps 100). You reveal Your GOODNESS to us in Your Actions toward us in Jesus, and by circumstances, and through others, You cannot violate Your own Loving nature—You are the ‘GOD-who-Forgives’ all—All our sins that we have commited against You and others—and that not of ourselves—for this reason ONLY we are saved—by Your LOVE FOR US-ONLY-and we THANK YOU in this season for All Your blessings we have recieved this past year —You are our GOOD FATHER in Christ Jesus we pray Praise. Amen.”
