Be Blessed part 1

We would rather be sick just not to have to experience this feeling. We would rather

be poor so that we don’t have to deal with looking at others who are less fortunate

especially when it is our brothers. We, who rather go through the eye of a needle,

then be the healthy person in a relationship with a person dying of cancer. How hard

is it to enter the kingdom of heaven?

How hard is it to have a peace that defies understanding in the face of a war that is

killing your friends? How hard is it to have the answer to your mother’s problems but

she won’t choose to hear it or see it or do it? Physical pain has always been easier

to handle then mental anguish. How hard is it to love your sister who is dying of Aids

because of past choices? I mean not to blame her every time you look at her for

robbing you of a healthy relationship? How hard is it to receive God’s unmerited

favor? The favor that you didn’t earn? The favor that you don’t deserve? The favor

that isn’t given to your brother. How hard is it to believe you are the beloved of God

in the face of your best friend?

In Colossians 3:23 KJV it says “And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord,

and not unto men.” Why you ask? Is it so I can be rewarded? Yes, but not like you

think. Let’s look at the next verse. “Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the

reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ” (Colossians 3:24 KJV). The

reward we need is our inheritance of peace of mind, of boldness to talk to God and to

lean on Christ for support. We need the confidence to realize that we cannot ever do

enough to save anyone and the courage to move forward anyways in Christ.
