No "I"! 10/9/16
2 Corinthians 10:12 (KJV)
12 For we dare not make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves: but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise.
There will ALWAYS be a better/greater............................You fill in the blank!
I thought of this as I watched an excellent video of a fellow Pastor's daughter's TESTimony this past week.
AND, if I had a nickel for the number of times people have approached me with the opening words:
Pastor, I know my problem and problems are nothing compared to what you have been through, but.................."
AGAIN, I say:
MAJOR SURGERY IS WHEN IT HAPPENS TO YOU.
MINOR SURGERY IS WHEN IT HAPPENS TO SOMEONE ELSE!!!"
AMEN AND AMEN!!!
God CAN, WILL, AND DOES USE OTHER PEOPLE FOR HIS GLORY.
And YOU are "other people!!!"
GOD CAN, WILL, AND DOES USE YOU!!!
JESUS USE ME, O LORD DON'T REFUSE ME.
SURELY THERE'S A WORK THAT I CAN DO.
EVEN THOUGH IT'S HUMBLE-HELP MY WILL TO CRUMBLE.
THOUGH THE COST BE GREAT I'LL WORK FOR YOU!"
Our God does not NEED any of us to DO anything!!!!
Did He not say:
Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
It is only by His Grace that God ALLOWS us to be "labourers together WITH God!"
1 Corinthians 3:9 (KJV)
9 For we are labourers together with God: ye are God's husbandry, ye are God's building.
By His Grace God ALLOWS us to have a part in His Master Plan.
Just being on His Team should be more than enough!!!
WHEN God wins, we all win!
1 Corinthians 12:26 (KJV)
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1 Corinthians 12:25 (KJV)
25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that the members should have the same care one for another.
THERE SHOULD BE NO SCHISM IN THE BODY!!!!!"
1 Corinthians 12:14-18 (KJV)
14 For the body is not one member, but many.
15 If the foot shall say, Because I am not the hand, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
16 And if the ear shall say, Because I am not the eye, I am not of the body; is it therefore not of the body?
17 If the whole body were an eye, where were the hearing? If the whole were hearing, where were the smelling?
18 But now hath God set the members every one of them in the body, as it hath pleased him.
Today, rejoice IF you are a MEMBER of Christ' Body!!!
Just as every member of the winner of the SUPERBOWL receives a ring, EVERY MEMBER of Christ will receive a Crown!!!!!
1 Peter 5:4 (KJV)
4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.
ALWAYS REMEMBER AND KNOW:
There is NO "I" in team!!!!!
PS-I have read the last Chapter and WE WIN!!!!!
