This verse today that I just read got me thinking about somethings that have been going in in my life and my surroundings lately.
I think even the most taught Christians get busy and forget this verse.
Philippians 1:6 King James Version (KJV)
6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:
(WILL perform it).
I can honestly say that I never give up on anyone at anytime ever. If I were to do that I would be setting my self up for a big set back. I may have an opinion but to subconsciously or consciously give up on someone. Never Never Never…. God’s love would no longer be working in me.
Just like some I have seen do recently. It’s easy to think the wrong thing form what is seen or a string of events that have happened in someones life. It could be that God is allowing those things to be done for another person to be brought to his knees and for him to have an awareness that he is operating in judgement or arrogance which is an error on their part.
It appears a certain way. Perhaps the person he is using is a special person that he knows can take the beatings and trampling on. It takes great faith to know that those that he uses this way must not give up on what he is doing. Even if the person knows not what is going on totally and others trample upon him raging to the top of their voice kill him and throw him to the lions.
Now that takes great faith.
I live for the unseen. A world with Christ as headship through his dedication to the Father and praying without ceasing that all should come to repentance. Letting him draw people to himself and work out their salvation.
Let me follow that life style. It will keep me in check and far away from judgement and therefore being judged.
So I don’t go peeking into another persons life and judge on what is seen. Yes even if a fruitful life is not evident or they aren’t following like I think they should I will let God do his working power. AND NEVER QUESTION IT EVER.
Yes I should notice if good fruits are being produced in a persons life and be joyous that they are making progress but if no fruit is being produced I WILL NOT JUDGE THEM. I will just let God work in their life and be there for them and pray that someday he will bring peace in their life.
I will let God work it out, not me. I won’t bank on what my small mind thinks or conceives of another person.
That would leave me broke………He will take away even what I thought I had.
So I am moving forward. Maybe a new beginning is around the corner in another area of the world perhaps. Who knows what is in store. I am thinking big.
God says go into the world.
I will think big and move on and dust off the dust on my feet of those that have judged me in any way shape or form. Bless them and move to the high calling of Christ the Lord.
Knowing this one thing.
God so loved the world that he gave is life for us all.
