And we know that in all things God works for the good of those
who love him, who have been called according to his purpose.
Yesterday in my bible study at the church one of our friend raised this verse and I was delighted to hear it and meditate on it today thinking that I should keep these key verses in my mind and meditate and reflect on it day in and day out.
So I thought may be I will share this today. All of us think of the circumstances that we go through and if it is hard to take it or not the way that you wanted it to be then we think why did God brought this to me and why he is not giving me peace. But what authority you the clay has to question the potter. When we read the story of Apostel paul in jail he still used that opportunity to minister the Gospel to the guards who were there to watch him in the cell.
Paul talks to the saints in philippi
” Now I want you to know, brothers, that what has happened to me has really
served to advance the gospel. As a result, it has become clear throughout the
whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains of for Christ.”
We see here that paul the apostle used his time wisley even in chains to minister the Gospel to others, I think we need to see the depths of the essence of the gospel and the glory of God. So I would urge you to continue trust in the lord in all situations. Now its easy to say it but the question is how would we practically do this in our lives.
I like to mention two main points to keep in our mind
a) Walk in Spirit
b) Be killing the sin
This should be a continues process everyday, because everyday for christians its a battle and we need to fight and stand every day, but how do we do it, we need to know the truth and the scripture says the truth will set you free.
The truth is the Good news of Christ. That God send his only son to die for us on the cross to save us from our sins, and those who repent and believe in christ will be saved. But to know the Good news we need to understand the bad news. Here is a Video from Mike’s new book “Am I really a Christian” He is explaining the bad news and lead us to the truth of the Gospel.
I met mike couples of months before in our church, he is a great brother with a passion for the Lord and to preach the Gospel.
