Necessary Seed For Full Life In Christ


Anyone that has ever been in a relationship with people can attest to the fact that you can always find something that does not line up with the way you would do something. Your ideas will never exactly parallel another. Anyone who has ever done a school project knows that your ideas may not be the ideas of another. This does not change with our relationship with Jesus. The big difference is that He is God and has all knowledge and we are finite creatures with a huge limitation in our understanding.

This means that when I come to the Word (The Bible) there will be things that I will not like about the Lord. Things that we will have suffer for His glory. Yes! He suffered for us on the cross, but when you are in the midst of the fire personally or He has shared with you the fire ahead, it does not make it easy. However, this suffering is a necessary seed for a full life in Jesus Christ. No great man or woman within the Bible was without trials and tests that their OBEDIENCE guarded them from. There are things you can reap because of SIN, but the Christian life is full of suffering with being righteous. Take Joseph for example. Accused of rape and sentenced to jail for a crime he did not commit. He was faithful to God and God did not spare him from prison.

In Revelation, God makes it clear that many Christians in the last hour will be martyred. We may die a criminals death, just like Jesus did beside the two thieves. We should always be ready in all things for the Lord Jesus Christ. If its God’s will for us to live a prosperous life on earth with limited issues and a nice burial, praise the Lord, if through martyrdom, praise the Lord.
