As He passed by, He saw a man blind from birth. And His disciples asked Him, "Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he would be born blind?" Jesus answered, "It was neither that this man sinned, nor his parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in him.
The verse above gives me peace...to appropriate it to me personally--Who sinned, this woman, or her parents, that she would be given all these health problems? It was neither Faith that sinned, nor her parents; but it was so that the works of God might be displayed in her. God is using me. :)
Serving Christ and being obedient is not easy; it costs a person greatly. Notice I did not say it cost a person greatly, it costs a person greatly. There is not one risk, there are risks involved in serving our Lord, and Saviour.
- What can I do to serve someone that cannot repay?
- Knowing it costs me dearly to give up my life to serve, as I give the best as a sacrifice, why do I continue?
- The results are eternal; where is your treasure?
1 Samuel 15:22
Samuel said, “Has the LORD as much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice”
