Hebrews 12:2 “Keep your eyes on [Jesus], who both began and finished this race we’re in. Study how he did it. Because he never lost sight of where he was headed–that exhilarating finish in and with God–he could put up with anything along the way: cross, shame, whatever. And now he’s [there], in the place of honor, right alongside God.”(MSG)
…From yesterday…
There is an incidence in Mark 9:17-29. The disciples couldn’t cast out a demon from a boy, and the father brought the case to Jesus. Jesus sorted out the issue in minutes! The disciples couldn’t believe it. They asked him why they couldn’t cast out the demon, and he told them, “this kind of problem requires prayer and fasting!”
Before the incidence, he had taken them to the mountain to pray all night. But while he prayed all night, the disciples slept all night! His disciples even refused to fast!
The Pharisee had to accuse Jesus of over pampering them by not encouraging them to fast.
Jesus paid some price they were not willing to pay, yet they coveted his results and harvest! God is not mocked!
Isn’t that the way you’ve been living your life? You want miracles to happen without paying the price. You want promotion in the office, yet you skip work at will. Your file is filled with sick leave permission. You look for every opportunity to stay away from work and yet you want God to promote you!
You attend church only on Sundays and special occasions and you want a result commensurate to that of a man that seeks the face of God daily and doesn’t miss any service! You must be a joker!
Galatians 6:7 “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
Paul admonishes us not to get deceived! In case you’ve been deceived or deceiving yourself, hear this from Lift, God is not mocked! Make the required exchange! Hear James:
To be continued…
