Knowing that we have each been called by GOD, to serve, and to GLORIFY HIM."
Do we each aim to take our calling to heart, by proclaiming what HE sends us to, in proclaiming the finished work of The Cross of HIS Son?
I mean, isn't that what HE is sending us to do, and to proclaim?" To share the finished work of The Cross of HIS Son, for the remission of sins?" Isn't HE is pleased with such a sacrifice?"
Yes, I am absolutely certain that HE is.
For Romans 10:14-16 makes it abundantly clear that the fruit of the RIGHTEOUS" is what pleases GOD.
So much so, that HE calls our fruit, a "Tree of LIFE."
Proverbs 11:30 assures us of it!" Embracing The TRUTH of The GOSPEL of CHRIST, is a "Tree of LIFE" for everyone who Believes in CHRIST, and embraces HIS finished work of The Cross for the remission of sins." And because GOD wants everyone to partake of the Tree of LIFE." In Romans 10:14-16 HE asks each of us who have been called out of darkness and into the LIGHT, this question": How then shall they call on HIM in Whom they have not Believed? And how shall Believe in HIM of Whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear without a preacher? [Now here's where we come in, Beloved Brethren.] And how shall they preach unless they are sent? ["Is GOD sending us to preach? Yes, and I understand that it's only us who Believe in the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, for the remission of sins.
For everyone who "Believes not," is still dead in their trespasses and sins.
So it's only we who Believe, whom GOD has entrusted with The GOSPEL to speak, not as pleasing men," but GOD Who tests our hearts.]: As it is written: How beautiful are the feet of those who preach The GOSPEL Of PEACE, who bring Good News of Good things!"
But they have not all obeyed The GOSPEL.
For Isaiah says, "LORD, who has Believed our report?"
["Who has Believed our report, is the question, Beloved Brethren?"
I praise GOD, Beloved, that we have Believed The WORD of The LIVING GOD!" We have Believed in the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST, for the remission of our sins."
And we have been "BORN of HIS SPIRIT!"
And we know that GOD has called us out of darkness and into HIS Marvelous LIGHT!" HE has called us unto HIMSELF." And we wish to be chosen by HIM!"
For Mathew 22:14 makes it emphatically clear, that we should embrace such a sentiment, saying: "For many are called, but few are chosen."
We wish to be among the chosen, don't we?" Yes!
Well, who can be chosen that doesn't choose to respond to GOD'S calling?
Seeds of The GOSPEL of CHRIST, are being sown into the hearts of men everyday." But who can be chosen by GOD, that rejects the "Seed" of Everlasting LIFE today, tomorrow?
I pray that all would respond to GOD'S calling, and recieve HIS "Seed," and offer of "Everlasting LIFE, Who is CHRIST The LORD." CHRIST, our LORD!"
Consider the parable of the sower from Mathew 13:3-9, and let us examine ourselves.
For we are each admonished to do so in 2nd Corrinthians 13:5-6": Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the FAITH.
Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that JESUS CHRIST is in you?- unless indeed you are disqualified. But I trust that you will know that we are not disqualified.
Brethren, if there is one thing to really take in from the parable of the sower, is to learn that we are to be FAITHFUL in sowing seed."
Consider how it reads, and how we are called to this🤔:
"Behold, a sower went out to sow." And as he sowed, some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds came and devoured them." Some fell on stony places, where they did not have much earth." And they immediately sprang up because they had no depth of earth." But when the sun was up they were scorched, and because they had no root they withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them. But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty." He who has ears to hear, let him hear."
Knowing that we have been called to sow seeds for The GLORY Of GOD, and that we will one day be
among the harvesters who labored.
Among which harvesters, do you wish to be found? Among those who reaped little? Those who reaped much? Or those who will be counted among the wicked, who did nothing for The GLORY of The LORD, and never saw HIM, as such?"🤔
Personally speaking, I'm "Hoping to see your great success, and that it be evident in the way that you're "beautifully dressed."
I pray that we each, Beloved, would be found among those who brought forth a "hundredfold" from our labor. Yes, a "hundredfold," and that we would each look to stir eachother up to "LOVE, and good works."
And that we would meditate on this WORD from 1st Corrinthians 15:58 : Therefore, my Beloved Brethren, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of The LORD, knowing that your labor is not in vain in The LORD.
Our labor in The LORD, Beloved, is not in vain!"
So my aim, is to stir you up to good works, and to sow seeds, knowing that our labor is not in vain.
For even when a farmer sows seed in his field, it might look like he’s simply throwing it away. It might appear to be lost, but it's really not!" For in due time, the farmer gets back what he invested, with much more added to it."
In like manner,
We who have recieved the seed of Everlasting LIFE, which is CHRIST, our LORD," Are hired on as servants, and instructed to do the work of an Evangelist, seeking to make for ourselves Treasure in HEAVEN.
Proverbs 11:30 assuring us, that the fruit of the RIGHTEOUS is a Tree of LIFE; and he who wins Soul's is wise.
Wise?" Yes, it's wise to make Treasure that will last forever."
So Mathew 9:37-38 is a WORD to get us moving, and motivate us, saying: "The harvest is truly plentiful, but the laborers are few.
Therefore pray The LORD of the harvest to send out laborers into HIS harvest."
I am praying that GOD would send out more laborers, and fulfill each of our purpose.
For we've each been created with a purpose!"
And that purpose, Beloved, is that we GLORIFY The NAME, Above all name's!" Yes, The NAME Above all name's!"
Knowing that at The NAME of JESUS, every knee will bow."
So I am praying, Beloved, that each of us, would, take our calling to heart!"
For many are they," even as many are we," who have been called out of darkness, and into GOD'S Marvelous LIGHT." That we each might proclaim the praises of HIM Who is The LIGHT of the world.
For it is HE, Beloved Brethren, Who called us unto HIMSELF!" JESUS CHRIST." To live Eternally, for HIS GLORY."
HE has called us, Beloved Brethren, to share HIS story!"
And to those who know to Believe GOD, and that HE has called us to this." HE has ordained us as priest's, to speak, and to proclaim The GOSPEL of CHRIST to this lost and dying world. 🌎
But to them that refuse!"
Malachi 2:1-2 speaks this WORD to them, saying: And now, O priests, this commandment is for you.
If you will not hear, and if you will not take it to heart,
To give GLORY to MY NAME,"
Says The LORD of hosts,.
"I will send a curse upon you,
And I will curse your Blessings.
Yes, I have cursed them already, Because you do not take it to heart.
I don't know about you, but I aim to take my calling to heart!" Yes, to take my calling "Seriously!"
And I will continuously pray, that from obedience to The WORD of The LIVING GOD," we never depart!" Never depart!'
For if we say to LOVE LIFE, and wish to see good days." The LORD would have us consider 1st Peter 3:10-12 and HIS admonition: For He who would LOVE LIFE and see good days,
Let him refrain his tongue from evil
And his lips from speaking deciet.
Let him turn away from evil and do good; Let him seek PEACE and pursue it.
For The Eye's of The LORD are on the RIGHTEOUS, and HIS Ears are open to their prayers; [Yes, Beloved, our LORD'S Ears are open to our prayers.] But The FACE of The LORD is against those who do evil."
And so I praise GOD for everyone, who like us, LOVES "LIFE,"
And wishes to see good days!"
Because Proverbs 9:10 assures us, that The fear of The LORD is the beginning of wisdom, and the knowledge of The HOLY "ONE" is understanding." So as we fear The LORD, we become wise, and obtain understanding of The HOLY ONE."
And as we lose our lives in HIM, "In our service to HIM."
We find our LIFE."
For in Mark 8:35, The LORD makes it abundantly clear, by saying: For whoever desires to save his LIFE will lose it, but whoever loses his LIFE for MY sake and The GOSPEL'S will "SAVE" it."
Brethren, our TEACHER, and LORD, JESUS CHRIST, teaches us to measure our lives by losses rather than gains, by sacrifice rather than not." In time spent serving others rather than time spent serving ourselves." Right!" By LOVE poured out into the lives of others, because The LOVE of GOD, has been poured into our own."
It’s a rule of LIFE, Beloved Brethren," "GOD Blesses those, whom themselves, Bless others."
HE gives to those, whom themselves, give, and serve others."
"The BODY of CHRIST," is who we are, Brethren.
TENDERHEARTED, and LOVING, as Brothers."
It's how GOD has taught us that our lives are to have true meaning, and be full of purpose!" And will amount to something."
It's how we will be successful, and have a good place in the coming KINGDOM of GOD.
For consider Mathew 20:20-26 and how The LORD reveals that the mother of a couple disciples wanted a good place for her sons, and asked HIM to grant them to be given the privilege to sit one on HIS right Hand in The KINGDOM, and the other on HIS left." But The LORD responded by saying: "You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I AM about to drink, and be baptized with the baptism that I AM baptized with?" They said to HIM, we are able." So HE said to them, "you will indeed drink MY cup, and be baptized with the baptism that I AM baptized with; but to sit on MY right Hand and on MY left is not MINE to give, but those for whom it is prepared by MY "FATHER." And when the ten heard it, they were greatly displeased with the two brothers." But JESUS called them to HIMSELF and said. "You know that the rulers of the gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them.
Yet, it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant." And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave, just as The SON Of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give HIS LIFE a ransom for many."
[Did you catch that, Beloved?" To give HIS LIFE, a ransom for many!
But why HE did not say, for All!" Why not, for All?" Because not everyone will embrace "The "WORD of The LIVING GOD," and Believe HIM!"
They won't Believe John 3:16, that GOD so LOVED the world that HE gave HIS only begotten Son, that whoever Believes in HIM should not perish but have Everlasting LIFE.
They won't Believe that JESUS CHRIST, is The WORD of The LIVING GOD, Who laid down HIS LIFE, to guide us all, unto Everlasting LIFE." To REDEEM us each, through FAITH." And then ask to be patient, for HE has gone to prepare in HEAVEN, a place."
Consider how: John 14:1 says: "Let not your heart be troubled; you Believe in GOD,
Believe also in ME.
In MY FATHER'S House are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.
And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and recieve you to MYSELF; that where I AM, there you may be also. And where I go you know, and The WAY you know.
We know Beloved, "Whom we have Believed." Thus, "we know, Whom we obey!"
The unbelieving world though, won't Believe how John 1:3 reveals that all things were made through HIM.
And that without HIM, nothing was made that was made. They won't Believe, that it's actually HIM, JESUS CHRIST. That accomplished their REDEMPTION entirely, on The Cross.
They won't Believe that HE suffered to "take away" the sin of the world!"🌎 They won't recieve The GRACE of GOD upon them, to be unfurled!"
They won't Believe!"
Thus, Hebrews 11:6 assures us, saying: And without FAITH it is impossible to please HIM, for he who comes to GOD must Believe that HE is, and that HE is a rewarder of those who diligently seek HIM.
How can anyone please GOD, that doesn't Believe what HE says?" And without pleasing HIM, how can they be chosen by HIM? HE can't use the "unbelieving" to proclaim the "finished work" of The Cross of HIS Son?"
How, if they don't Believe HIS WORD?
None can live for The GLORY Of GOD, that refuse to embrace the Authority of HIS WORD, and won't obey HIM?"
But to The BODY of CHRIST, who does obey GOD'S WORD and teachings."
GOD, not willing that any should perish, is sending us to sow seeds of SALVATION." Yes, seeds of Everlasting LIFE into the hearts of men, by sharing The GOSPEL of the finished work of The Cross of CHRIST.
Praying that the seeds that we sow, would all reap a harvest of GLORY.
For The One True GOD, Who has left us here to share HIS story. For HE has assured us that HE is not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.
Yes, repentance of sin, and walking in darkness.
in due time, we will reap, if we do not lose heart.
So I end with this SCRIPTURE from Ephesians 5:15-17 Beloved Brethren." See then, that you walk circumspectlly, not as fools
but as wise, redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
Therefore do not be unwise, but understand what the will of The LORD is.
