MORNINGTIME 3520by Benjamin Munsell on June 24, 2020
We then, as workers together with him, beseech you also that ye receive not the grace of God in vain. (For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.) Giving no offence in any thing, that the ministry 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 dishonour, by evil report and good report: as deceivers, and yet true; 2 Corinthians 6:1-8. During this time of Covid19, the Lord is asking each and every person who professes Christ, "What kind of Faith do you have in Me, right now"? I'll explain. (This is an observation, not a judgment of someone's Faith). IF, and that's a capital I F, you profess that Jesus Christ, and Him Alone, has EVERYTHING under His Control, that He Alone holds your Life in His Hands, and that He, and He Alone, will call you Home at the moment of HIS choosing, is that Faith enough to give you Comfort, Peace and Joy fully and totally in this Life, here and now? That you can actually walk around WITH AND IN, NO FEAR? OR, do you profess all the above, and are ALSO looking to man, and man's understanding TO PROTECT YOU FROM DEATH? Will the Lord take care of you, or will social distancing, wearing a mask, and staying home, keep you "safe"? "I have to be careful; I don't want to bring home C19 and hurt my elderly _____" (fill in the blank) THIS IS NOT TO CRITICIZE YOU!!! Your Faith is where you're at. I'm only asking, are you "mixing" Faith in God AND faith in MAN, together??? Consider why and Who you follow, for you to, Be Blessed.
