Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

Take Courage

TAKE COURAGE! YOU CAN GROW WHEAT

The Parable: The wheat and the weeds.

The bravery of God in  trusting us! You say, “But He has been unwise to choose me, because there is nothing in me; I am not of any value”.  That is why he chose you.  As long  as you think there is something in you, God cannot choose you because you have ends of your own to serve; but if you have let Him bring you to the end of your self-sufficiency, then he can choose you to go with Him to Jerusalem, and that will mean the fulfillment of purposes which He does not discuss with you.

We are apt to say that because a man, or woman, has natural ability, therefore he/she will make a good Christian.  It is not a question of our equipment but of our poverty; not of what we bring with us, but of what we allow God to put into us; not a question  of natural virtues, of strength of character, knowledge and experience.  What matters is that we allow ourselves to be taken up into the big compelling of God and made  His comrades.

The comradeship of God is made up out of men and women who know their poverty.  He can do nothing with me if I think that I am of use to God.

As Christians we are not out for our own cause; we are out for the cause of God.  We do not know what God is after, but we have to maintain our relationship with Him whatever happens.  The main thing about Christianity is the relationship we maintain and the atmosphere produced by that relationship: for out of our “BEING” comes our “DOING”.

This is what God asks of us, “our relationship with Him”, and is the one thing that is being continually assailed—by   weeds.
