Praise the Lord – more and more people have been coming to the Sabbath class!! What is so pleasing about it are the new people that have been coming, because of what they heard me speak on the radio programs. The lesson that I gave today was called, Overcoming Evil by Doing Good. It was a lesson that was well received.
What I realized is there are many things in the Word of God that one should understand. The key to remember is, no matter how much knowledge and understanding you have in the Word of God, if you do not have the basics of loving your neighbor as you love yourself it is all in VAIN!
It truly takes the mind of Christ for one to love his enemy, for one to turn the other cheek, and for one to pray for those who despitefully use him.
As I taught this lesson, I truly realized just how much I needed a mind transformation. I also understood that it is not in us to do right unless we lay hold to the righteousness of God Himself! If we are going to be True Christians we must always remind ourselves that this Christian walk comes with much tribulation and sometimes persecution. Knowing these things we must continually pray and ask for God’s strength as we walk through these paths of trials and tribulations.
It is written, “all things work together for the good of them who love God”. Therefore, the things that appear to be bad are not because God says it is working for our good. We have been shaped and molded in the image of the ONE who is creating us. We must be settled rooted and grounded in this WORD until the day of our redemption!!
May God grant us with everything that we need to overcome ourselves in the Mighty Name of Jesus Amen!!
