I read Matthew 16 from The Message bible and some words from Jesus so struck me that I had to blog …
V25- ‘don’t run from suffering; embrace it.’… How? Response: ‘… follow me and I’ll show you how.’
So, how do I follow him? Response: by letting him lead… V24- ‘… anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead.’
Want to know how to let him lead? simply invite him, ‘then hand over every every as the oga @ the top…’ And his leading is awesome.
ok. Another striking thing:
V26- ‘ what kind of deal is it to get everything you want but loose yourself? what could you ever trade your soul for?’… Real life most dreaded question… to me as well…
V27- ‘ don’t be in such a hurry to go into business for yourself. Before you know it the son of man will arrive with all the splendor of his father accompanied by an army of angels’
well, what should I do when its very obvious that the society cares less about me? who does the me-business?
well, He sure does, with or without my acknowledgement… and I’m grateful… and he’s a good husbandman, a good care taker and lovely leader
(contd)’… you’ll get everything you have coming to you, a personal gift.’… that’s his promise… his good word
Hope you’re blessed by the bible? The very living word of God!
