II Kings 2:9-11
This past Sunday we was given a lesson about the last day that Elisha had with Elijah. This was the verse when Elisha asks for a double portion which meant an inheritance as a son according to Jewish tradition and then a recognition by Elijah that its not up to him but its up to GOD. The pastor noted how Elijah left the world as a faithful warrior. In a glorious exit. What stuck with me most about the sermon was the call to be faithful warriors! We was told that GOD don't want us to get the scraps of the table like when we ask for a new car, a good job, a new house. We should be asking for things of GOD things that glorify GOD! This was almost like a continuation of last week when we learned about how we should dream big.
I was thinking through the week if I am living as a normal christian or a Faithful Warrior. I am now praising GOD that he has made me grow to the point when I now share the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, I openly say Praise GOD instead of "whew I'm lucky" . I use online to do more than share funny pictures and interesting quips, but its not about what I do good, its about what I can do more!
I need to push further and stop talking about how I'm tired at work, how I'm broke and happy its pay day, you know, complain ,complain,complain.. How do I show I am a child of GOD a faithful servant, if I am complaining like everyone else. What about careers, should I be happy I get a 20 - 30 views of this post or should I be expecting thousands tune in to hear the good word of GOD? Will this just be a hobby or do I know GOD can use me as a vessel to reach thousands. That student I have that I just know going to be a future prisoner, do GOD want me to be a vessel to help him be the next evangelist?
My sinful flesh want to say, well if GOD wants me to do this and that why its so hard, but reflecting on the sermon and the Bible I have to once again remember doing GODs work take time and steadfastness. The pastor illustrated a great description of pizza, needing to be pounded and press before we get the good stuff, the pepperoni,cheese, and veggies in life! Reading this hopefully your doing like me while typing this, its time to stop being small minded think BIG, WARRIORS COME OUT TO PRAYYY hahaha GOD BLESS
