SMS Date - MARCH 3, 2017

SMS Message - IT WILL TAKE MINDS THAT ARE READY TO DARE THE HUMAN NATURE IN THEM TO THINK OF OTHERS FIRST MATTHEW 19:16-22. HAVE YOU EVER CHALLENGED YOUR SO CALLED HUMAN NATURE TO TOUCH A SOUL? CHECK. HUMAN BEINGS ARE ALWAYS SO ATTACHED TO THEIR POSSESSIONS AND ACHIEVEMENTS TO SUCH AN EXTENT THAT IT ALWAYS SENDS A SIGNAL OF PAIN OR LOSS TO GIVE A LITTLE OR MUCH OUT TO FELLOW MEN OR EVEN GOD. THIS WAS THE CASE WITH THE YOUNG RICH RULER IN THE ABOVE SCRIPTURES, WHO FINDS IT SO EASY TO KEEP THE COMMANDMENTS WHICH CAN EASILY BE NOTICED BY OTHERS BUT DIFFICULT TO GIVE HIS POSSESSIONS TO THE POOR. THE SCRIPTURES IN ISAIAH 58: 2-5 SAYS THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL APPEARED TO BE SEEKING GOD DAILY AND DELIGHT TO KNOW HIS WAYS AS A NATION THAT DID RIGHTEOUSNESS AND DID NOT FORSAKE THE ORDINANCES OF THEIR GOD (VERSE 2) BUT THEY DID ALL THESE FOR STRIFE AND ARGUMENT (VERSE 4). WHEN IT COMES TO HELPING THE OPPRESSED AMONG THEM; TO SHARE THEIR BREAD WITH THE HUNGRY; TO BRING THE POOR WHO ARE CAST OUT TO THEIR HOUSE; TO COVER THOSE WHO ARE NAKED THEY DO NOT SEE IT AS PART OF GODLY SACRIFICES. LET US MAKE ALL THESE PARTS OF OUR CHRISTIAN SERVICE AND WE SHALL BE ATTRACTING THE BLESSING IN VERSES 8-12 OF ISAIAH 58 TO OURSELVES AND SHALL BE PLEASING GOD AS WELL. THESE ARE PRINCIPLES THAT WILL ATTRACT THE LIGHT OF GOD IN CHRISTIANS TO THOSE WHO ARE STILL IN THE DARKNESS OF THIS WORLD AND ALSO BRING DOWN THE BLESSINGS WHICH GOD HAS PRONOUNCED UPON THOSE WHO OPERATE IN THEM.
