There are seven things that Jesus came to do:
- He brought the vision of the Kingdom.
- He taught them (the ones He was called to reveal this Kingdom).
- He showed them by example how
- He loved them unconditionally.
- He gave them what they needed; not always what they wanted.
- He fed them (spiritually/physically).
- He left a legacy.
As the children of God (and Christ’s followers) we have laid before us a great (and unique) opportunity to change what Satan has meant for evil upon this earth. But, are we willing to pay the price to be a change agent? Are we willing to sacrifice ourselves to be set apart for the Master’s use?
When it is all said and done, and you kneel before the Lord (and we all will someday) what will you tell Him? What will you lay at His feet, as His follower? There will be no more excuses left, no more complaining or whining about why you couldn’t or why you didn’t. All will be bare before the One who knew us through the good, bad and ugly. Many have been devastated over the recent suicide of Robin Williams. I know I was. The night I discovered he had died there were no concrete circumstances stated at the time. I went to bed, got up, and talked to God. My heart was grieving the loss of a soul that evidently was riddled with torment. How sad.
Don’t let the enemy of all of our souls hoodwink you into depression or closing yourself off from others. Learn to follow Jesus on earth. He is our Savior…your Savior. It is why He came. He promises that He will guide you into all truth and I can tell you from my personal experience that the truth can hurt, but the result is healing. Reach out to someone who can help you learn to overcome no matter how hard your circumstances are or how long it takes you to get back up on your feet.
Christ is the only one who can supernaturally help you. Please follow Him and HE will reveal the Kingdom and His ways to you, as you go along…but stay steadfast. His fixes are not always quick or easy. He is the only one who possesses all the hidden knowledge about you to help you be an overcomer. He will reveal himself to you in ways you could not possibly imagine, if you will but only turn to Him.
The initial seven things that are listed above are yours for the asking…
