To be like Jesus 294

Today

why worry, why angry, why empty and not full.

“The righteous eateth to the satisfying of the soul: but the belly of the wicked shall want.” Proverbs 13 v25 AKJV

Questions-How can I be an overcomer? Shall I choose a life of religious observance?-I hope so, and there’s more…Restore in me the spirit of contentment.

First, learn not to put more on myself/yourself than you can bear. Do not overload yourself with convictions of your own thoughts, or others implied convictions.

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives to death.” Revelation 12 v11 AKJV

Our testimony begins with faith. Confessing with a voice (a hearts true voice) that all aspects of the gospel of Jesus Christ are true. By faith we openly accept that Jesus is the lamb of God and his sacrifice at the cross made it possible for all sinners to be saved.

Okay, saved from what? Saved from a life of unbelief, to a life filled with the presence of God, even to eternal life in Heaven. Making a confession with our mouth and believing in our heart that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and gave his life for the remission of our sins is the beginning of God’s work in us.

That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shall believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believed unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the scripture saith, Whosever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.” Romans 10 v9-11 AKJV

Now that we have the ‘not ashamed’ part understood let us remember not to become boastful in the carry of who we are. Our new relationship with Jesus Christ comes with the joy of knowing why we believe-‘we have been saved.’ Why empty and not full?-was one of the beginning thoughts in this writing. The fullness comes in knowing for sure who we are, part of the family of God, true humility.

“God is good” we say, as a crowd favorite and he is, but there comes a time when life itself seems to square itself in on us, or those around us. Help to us comes with understanding and with knowing there is an accuser of the brethren. His purpose is to make one feel a life of discontentment rather than one of peace.

And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christs: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night:” Revelation 12 v10

…there is so much more-GOD IS GOOD…for all of those called into the work of the family, God’s family,…
