NEVER GIVE UP!!!

When Paul writes to the Ephesians he says, “But now in Christ Jesus, you that used to be so far off have been brought close, by the blood of Christ” Eph 2:13. The blood of Christ broke the walls that separated us from God. That was made for nothing but to show how special we are in His heart. He does not want us to be far from Him but to be close so as to understand His Word. He wants us to get it straight that everything is possible for the one who believes (Mark 9:23). You may not have food on your table presently but God is there with you in that struggle. You can be on a sick bed, hospital or home, do not loose hope, He is there with you. Count your blessings. Do not focus more on what you have lost, it could be time, family, friends, your loved one, money and so on but at least you did not loose God and your faith in the whole process. That is how lucky you are. NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Remember the gospel according to Mark, Then Jesus looked at him and loved him. “One thing you lack,” he said. “Go sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me” (Mk 10:21) There are so many things that we focus on and forget the cross. We tend to concentrate more on the earthly things forgetting Jesus our Savior. We need to do away with all our weaknesses and go back to God. We are the chosen race, remember at the last supper when Jesus turns to His disciples he said, “You did not choose me, but I chose you” (Jn 15:16). It is Christ Himself who called you to the kind of life you living. Try to focus on him and the cross. We are more than special to God! In any circumstances that you find yourself in know that God is just standing by giving you power and more power to fight the devil. NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Quitters never win yet winners never quit. You are the winner in Christ Jesus. Remember, “God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control” 2Tim 1:7, do not allow situations to control you because you have power over all that. You have power over it all. You can fight all those because you have power. You have been brought closer to God through the blood of Christ. That is how special you are, walk tall all the time thanking God for His blessings on you. Let us us God to continue showering us with His gifts this afternoon especially the gifts of Faith, Love and Charity. NEVER GIVE UP!!!

Have a wonderful afternoon and be blessed.
