It Is Enough! 5/13/15

 

 

 

 

Matthew 10:24-25 (KJV)
24  The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord.   
 

 

25  It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household?

 

Matthew 10:24-25 (GW)  
24  "A student is not better than his teacher. Nor is a slave better than his owner.    

 

25  It is enough for a student to become like his teacher and a slave like his owner. If they have called the owner of the house Beelzebul, they will certainly call the family members the same name.

 

ENOUGH-from <G714> (arkeo); satisfactory :- enough, suffice (-ient).

Strong's Talking Greek & Hebrew Dictionary.

 

Jesus said, "IT IS ENOUGH FOR THE DISCIPLE (STUDENT) TO BE AS (LIKE) HIS MASTER (TEACHER)!"

 

And the United States Marine Corp is "LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN/WOMEN!!!!"

 

These Words have haunted me for several days as I mused on/ thought on and contemplated what Jesus meant?

 

Jesus said, "IT IS ENOUGH FOR THE DISCIPLE (STUDENT) TO BE AS (LIKE) HIS MASTER (TEACHER)!"

 

In a terrible, dark moment of utter depression, the mighty Prophet Elisha hurled his accusation against his God:

 

1 Kings 19:9-10 (KJV)
9  And he came thither unto a cave, and lodged there; and, behold, the word of the LORD came to him, and he said unto him, What doest thou here, Elijah?   
 

 

10  And he said, I have been very jealous for the LORD God of hosts: for the children of Israel have forsaken thy covenant, thrown down thine altars, and slain thy prophets with the sword; and I, even I only, am left; and they seek my life, to take it away.

 

SOMETIMES we feel all alone in this world of woe!

 

It "seems" like ALL the good men/women are long gone and the TRUTH will die out with the passing of "OUR" generation.

 

Even the media just yesterday was touting the FALSE "news" that there are fewer Christians in America today!

 

I got NEWS for the media- Have they ever heard of the UNDER DOG winning!!!

 

PRAISE THE LORD!!!

 

As Mark Twain quipped:

 

 "Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated"

 

The STUDENT cannot rise, the student cannot learn more than the MASTER/TEACHER knows and/have ACCOMPLISHED!!!

 

Our MASTER/TEACHER is ETERNAL and never has nor never will die!!!

 

HE needs not a building to teach in nor pen and paper.

 

HE needs not the internet or multimedia to publish His WORD!!

 

Psalm 37:31 (KJV)

  
31  The law of his God is
in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.   
 

 

Psalm 119:11 (KJV)

  
11  Thy word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.

 

 

The world-PEOPLE EVERYWHERE-have no excuse for NOT knowing God:

 

Romans 1:19-20 (KJV)

  
19  Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it
unto them.   
 

 

20  For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

 

Being an ATHEIST, a believer in evolution or the big bang THEORY is in itself and by definition a RELIGION solely based on FAITH/BELIEF!!!

 

2 Peter 3:5 (KJV)

  
5
 For this they willingly are ignorant of, that by the word of God the heavens were of old, and the earth standing out of the water and in the water:   
 

 

Beloved, take heart today!

 

There is a whole generation of fresh BELIEVERS more than willing and more than ever equipped to carry on the MESSAGE of Jesus.

 

WE may not be able to see them with our FINITE eyes, but it remains just as God replied to Elisha's pitiful cry:

 

1 Kings 19:18 (KJV)

  
18  Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.

 

 

God sees YOU rising up to complete His MISSION:

 

Mark 16:15 (KJV)

  
15
 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.   
 

 

AND YES, I AM TALKIN' TO YOU, SHORTY!!!

 

GOD BLESS YOU!
