THE ULTIMATE GOAL
LIFE 'IN' JESUS CHRIST
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." John 3:16 (NKJV)
Seasons of Life In Jesus Christ.
Greetings, my beloved friends!
All I can start with is - ALAS! Home for a 'rest season', and able to put together some posts on this very important subject, 'The Times In Which We Are Living', knowing that truly, 'signs' of where we are on God's 'time clock' are crucially showing.
What? 'Climate change' - but, why? Why wouldn’t earth be groaning? Let's Set the 'Record' Straight!
Post 1-a/b, July 22, 2019; Post 2a/b, July 24, 2019; Post 3, July 26, 2019
Post 4, August 5, 2019; God is not 'surprised'. Post 5, August 7, 2019; 'Is this 'age' almost over? Post 6, August 9, 2019, Are you prepared? Post 7, August 19, 2019, Are you fearful?
The question will ever be - 'are these the last of the last days'. Or, said another way', are these the 'latter days' in which 'all will come to pass'? Or, is this near the time of 'the Lord's return to rule and reign in truth and justice', as Jesus promised, as He announced in 'the gospel'? [the 'gospel of the 'kingdom of God'] Is this the time, when the faulty, sinful rule of 'the devil', the god of this world system, will justly come to an end, as Jesus accomplished over 2000 years ago at Calvary, 'the empty tomb, for He rose', and, the 'Acsension' back to Heaven, waiting for the 'time of the restoration'? [Acts 1:11] Is it soon to be true justice and righteousness?
[Revelation 19-22] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Now that He's told us to be prepared for His return, [See Post 6, August 9, 2019, Matthew 24:1-13], are you prepared? He now begins to define what "prepared" looks like.
2. The Parable of the Talents: Productivity over Protection: Matthew 25:14-30
Jesus uses the story of the talents to describe how we should use what He gives us. A talent was an amount of money…more than $1,000, but the story applies as much to the time, gifts and abilities as it does to the money God gives us. Each of three servants gets an amount the master already knew he had the ability to manage. Two servants risked the master's money, doubled it, and were rewarded for their efforts. The third servant protected the master's money so that all of it would still be there when he returned. This servant was called useless. Why?
He protected the money! He returned 100% of it! He didn't lose a penny! He didn't spend a penny on himself! Why would he be considered useless?
Because the master gave him the money so he would put it to use to produce something. How many lessons do we need?
From the 'Last Days' Parables, we learn that 'fear' never produced anything…it never even got out of bed. In another version of this story, Jesus called the third servant wicked and lazy. Wicked, because his actions were motivated by fear of losing the master's money. Lazy because, with minimal effort, he could have put it to use earning interest.
People offer many excuses, but fear and laziness are the main suspects in a huge waste of the Lord's resources. I've known countless people who have said the Lord called them to this or that ministry, but were making absolutely no effort to accomplish it. When asked, they would say, "I believe in God to provide the opportunity." Or, "I'm waiting on the Lord to bring it." If David had felt this way about Goliath, Israel wouldn't exist today! David told everyone what he wanted to do, forced an interview with the King, envisioned himself collecting the reward, prepared for battle, and went and found his own rocks. People of faith who know what the master wants don't sit around, they get to work.
For most of us, we mature ever so slowly. Some walking in their 'spiritual life', may lock up such as their prayer life and limit the gift of faith God gives them out of fear of embarrassing God. Often, in human 'reasoning' or 'rationale'. there are such 'thoughts' as: 'What if I ask out loud for God to heal someone and He doesn't do it?' Of course, in reality this is a 'spirit of timidity', not of the Lord, [2 Timothy 1:7], and certainly not about embarrassing God, but, one self. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
We must boldly say what He's put on our heart to say. We must ever be about doing exactly what He said to do. Are we offering our friendship to people He wants us to love? Are we putting our money, or lives, our 'so-called' 'reputations' at risk in His service? Jesus did! [Luke 22:41-43 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html ]
All of us have come through, or, are coming through these situations. As with the wicked servant who was too fearful to produce for the Master, we must examine where we are, for we cannot stay 'in fear', but move forward, in 'faith and trust'. [Luke 12:5] For you see, Jesus is telling us to risk what He's given us to make it produce. He's saying the only "what if" we have to fear is, 'what if He returns and all I've done is protect what He gave me?'
Carefully study prayerfully all the Scriptures, asking the Lord to show you where He wants to work in your life in any area that you may be weak, that you may mature in your Christian 'walk' or 'life'. Then, as He answers, 'My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry..' [James 1:19]; be quick to hear and open for more 'joy' in 'trusting and obeying' Our Lord. According to John 14:21, we express love for Jesus by obeying His commands. To love Him wholeheartedly, we must develop a lifestyle of obedience. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html.
