Yesterday was an interesting and eye opening experience for me. Actually, I had many of them from 2007 up until now. I have come to learn and understand, through personal experience, that life/trials and tribulations or even storms will make or break you. It will also show you who you’re real family and friends are through deeds/actions and not just through lip service.
Please note: What a person goes through is not ALWAYS linked to some type/form of sin. It is a TEST. In some cases, their test may just be your test. I often wondered how many tests we failed from another person's life experience. Just Saying.
Are we our brother's keeper?
My hat goes off to those who are willing to do anything they can for not only their family, but for anyone in need WITHOUT any strings attached AND Without looking for the applaud of men for what they consider "good deeds" only to score "brownie points".
I learned that lesson, through Temple of Glory, in Savannah, GA and my friend, Ernestyne, who took GOOD CARE of my son and I while we were in GA. My title/position in my former church had nothing to do with what they did for us. They were doers of the Word and not just hearers only.
The "back door" to many of our churches are open. Not just for the unsaved/unchurched but for those who are saved and diligently trying to work for the Lord. It goes unnoticed, because as a body of "believers", we are too busy to notice. Unfortunately, too busy to care, or in some cases really don't want to "care" especially when people are being wounded/hurt by "church folks". Although this wound is deep, it can be healed.
Don't let no one stop you from fulfilling your God given purpose.
Let Go and Let God!
As a reminder, your title/position in the world and especially in the church does not exempt you from experiencing trials/tribulations; financial struggles/difficulties; heartache/pain; sickness/disease OR EVEN being used by the devil. Don't be fooled. He doesn't care about your title/position; financial status or even education. If he can use you, to destroy someone else, he will. "All have sinned and come short of the glory of God."
It's about RELATIONSHIP and not RELIGION.
Are you your BROTHER'S KEEER?
You can be!
It's time to get our house in order which begins through REPENTANCE.
JESUS is coming sooner than later. Know where you stand now before it is too late.
