MORNINGTIME 2834
 
GIVING NO OFFENSE IN ANY THING, THAT THE MINISTRY (of Christ) BE NOT BLAMED: BUT IN ALL THINGS APPROVING OURSELVES AS THE MINISTERS OF GOD, in much Patience, in Afflictions, in Necessities, in Distresses, In Stripes, in Imprisonments, in Tumults, in Labours, in Watchings, in Fastings; By Pureness, by Knowledge, by Longsuffering, by Kindness, by the Holy Ghost, by Love Unfeigned, By the Word Of Truth, by the Power Of God, by the Armour Of Righteousness on the right hand and on the left, By Honour and Dishonor, by Evil Report and Good Report: as Deceivers, and yet True; As Unknown, and yet Well Known; as Dying, and, behold, We Live; as Chastened, and Not Killed;  As Sorrowful, yet Alway Rejoicing; as Poor, yet Making Many Rich; as Having Nothing, and yet Possessing All Things. 2 Corinthians 6:3-10. This is a list of most everything a Christian can go through. A list of "good to bad". Some Christians only need to deal with a few of the items listed, and a few will deal with ALL the items listed. The Apostle Paul dealt with them all. And in ALL these things, he represented Christ to the Fullest, with no complaints about anything, except to say that he wished he could have known Christ even more. It doesn't matter if you're rich or poor, in jail or out, no matter what the CIRCUMSTANCES are around you, CHRIST IS ALL AND IN ALL. And He wants to make you like Himself by using any or all of these circumstances. When a Christian looks at Christ, his eyes are off the circumstances around him, and ALL he sees is Christ as his Source OF GOOD THINGS, to bring him completely into CHRISTLIKENESS. Therefore, EVERYTHING that comes a Believers Way, is sent from the Lord to help him become, Christ's Way. This world and its problems, are only, problems of this world. In Christ, we are above these problems as we Learn to Live In Him and show a watching world how Christ dealt with all these problems and to rise ABOVE them all, into the Heavenly. As you Learn to do this, you will, Be Blessed.
