It's All Grace

Amazing things can happen when you allow the Lord to work in your life.

Self Discipline

Discipline is not easy, but it’s better than regret.  We need to wait . . . yet the culture is conditioned for the “instant”!

It takes a patient man to sow good seed, even when you’re not seeing a good harvest:

Noah was the butt of jokes for 120 years

Abraham was promised a baby after he was 100 years old

Moses got put into the wilderness for 40 years

David went through trials before he ever wore a crown

Joseph went from a shepherd, to the 2nd most powerful man in the world

The disciples first commission was to “wait”!

Every chapter of life you are in, requires patience.  How many times do we compromise JUST BEFORE the harvest?  God’s best is always better than the alternative.

It’s better to want something you DON’T have . . . than to HAVE something you DON’T WANT!

A Crippled Boy

How will your loved ones be treated (by others in the future), based on the way you live for Christ today?  It greatly affected the life of a little boy who became lame in both feet at the age of 5 years old.  Mephibosheth was crippled by someone else’s attempt to protect his life.  He could have grown bitter and resentful.  But, because Mephibosheth’s Father (Jonathon) chose to love David unconditionally, laying down his life for another (who eventually became the king), Mephibosheth was not only taken care of, but what belonged to his father was restored to him and his family.

Are you reaping the blessing of someone else’s walk?  How are you being treated today based on how your ancestors lived in the past?  What will you do today so that others who come behind you may reap God’s blessing?  Are you a recipient of someone’s else’s obedience to Christ?  Will you INTENTIONALLY pass that on to others?
