Not a Sermon only a Thought

Serving Christ

Matthew 25:34-40

Stop for a moment and consider the purpose of your life. Are you living to pursue your own interests or success? Is your energy spent only on family? Perhaps your ambition is to change the world for the better.

All these aims—even the last one, which sounds so selfless—are futile and without lasting value unless the underlying goal is to serve Christ. As Jesus’ followers, we should model our life after His. And Matthew 20:28 tells us that even the Lord “did not come to be served, but to serve.”

Yet sometimes we can feel overwhelmed when we consider the amazing ways that other believers serve the Lord. With God on his side, King David led great armies into war. Also, there are evangelists today who speak to tens of thousands and see many saved. How could anything we do compare with accomplishments like these? And while comparisons may discourage us, some Christians use other excuses for not trying—such as a lack of experience or having the wrong personality for the task.

But God’s call for each person is unique. He will provide the situations, words, and ability so you can achieve what He wants done. Remember, our Father is the one who makes the difference. We are merely tools, and we’re blessed to be used by Him.

Are you demonstrating your love for the heavenly Father by serving others? As Christians, we should all live in such a way that every evening we can say to Him, “Lord, in the best way I know how, I have attempted to serve Your purpose today.”

Poor Bro. Keith didn't seem to know which is which. Or maybe he did and was intent on pulling wool over peoples' eyes. Someone should have told the brother that Guyanese aren't stupidee.

There are some who are inadequate no matter how simple you break it down they cannot grasp the ability to comprehend which result in an display of ignorance day after day. You fits that category well and you wear it like a badge of honor.

Dude for a Christian you are really mean spirited. Now people would expect that from me since I am not a Christian but what is your excuse?

just stating the obvious buddy

What? That you are a Christian and mean spirited!

The obvious of how inadequate you are to comprehend. That's the what.

Miracles mean nothing. Even Jesus said that some would perform miracles which would fool even the very elect. Anyone remember those evangelicals and their miracles? Billy Graham used to heal lots of people but he couldn't heal himself. He had to pass the baton to his extremist son Franklin because he was too weak to keep up his schedule. Believers of Jesus are supposed to have faith and trust in Jesus but even Jesus had moments when he lost faith and trust in God. Pie in sky preaching.

You speak of things as though you have an understanding of the Bible and even when one of knowledge clarify that what you failed to understand you resist which is not surprising at all because it's your motto to reject others opinion because you are right in your own eye.

I don't have an obligation to accept the silly explanations you give for the written words. I can competently understand what I read and because I don't foolishly follow others I have zero chance of accepting your explanations. Notice I don't even ask you anything directly? I may comment on what you post but have already determined that you are inadequate to represent what you post here.

You are in your rights to not accept my explanation. I am in my rights to  correct the false and misleading comments due to your lack of understand of the Bible. Stick to the matter you know best which is the Quran but then I doubt you understand that convoluted book.

Nothing is false or misleading about my comments because I post exact passages from the Bible. You should be more concerned about yourself since you try to employ apologetic methods to skirt around the written words. The reason I don't buy your explanations is because they are weak and silly.

What makes you think the Quran is a convoluted book? And who are you to label the Quran a convoluted book? Many have been killed in the Muslim world for insulting the Quran. Are you telling us that you read the Quran? Be serious Brother Keith!!!!!
