#1 LOVE #2 COMPASSION #3 MISSIONARY WORK?

PSALM 97:11

LIGHT SHINES ON THE GODLY, AND JOY ON THOSE WHOSE HEARTS ARE RIGHT.

Hi all.  I am so sorry this is coming out so late, but I was not feeling that great this week and every time I went to write a blog I just could not concentrate on it, my apologies to you all.  Well before I begin this weeks blog I have two very fast announcements, the first announcement is.  The woman I mentioned last week, the one whose my friend and who was sick and in ICU, well thankfully she is out of ICU and doing well, THANK YOU JESUS!!!! I do ask that you all continue praying for her though, shes still not fully out of the woods and has a long way to go, but is definitely doing much better.

The second thing I wanted to share was that I seen a comment on my blog page, maybe some of you seen it too but if you have not, last week someone wrote on THE-BOOK-OF-ROO asking for prayer.  It was a man and he asked that we all pray for his family and his broken marriage, (those were his words not mine) this man has two kids, they are two boys, so lets all just remember to keep this family in our prayers and ask that GOD touches their lives and restores this household.  He also asked that if I knew of any other prayer chains to add him too than to please do so, so I am going to ask that you all reading this, please do the same.  What the LORD has been showing me this week is three different  things.

#1 LOVE

#2 COMPASSION

#3 MISSIONARY WORK.

Before I get started on what I feel the LORDS having me share this week, I first want to make it very clear to you all, I am all for missionary work, I am all for pastors, preachers, teachers, prophets, evangelist and churches and all other types of ministry workers and ministries.  This week the LORDS really been showing me what seeing through his eyes means and what its really about and what being the light in the dark is.

Like I said I am all for missionary work, but I have a problem with some missionary people that I see around in toady’s churches.  I feel if your called to the missions and called to helping the helpless than lets really help them!!! lets say for instance if someone feels they want to go on a missions trip to help the homeless than lets really help them! with all do respect but giving them a bible or a W.W.J.D bracelet or fish stickers, and laying hands on them and saying a really powerful prayer is not what its all about.

That is great if you want to pass out bibles and pray over people, I am not saying they don’t need that, they do, I know they do, but in that moment what they need more, is a sandwich or a coat, or a clean glass of  water.  Like I said its awesome if you all want to lay hands on them and pass out bibles, but after your done with that where are you going at night???

Your going home to a clean bed, with a nice fancy dinner and probably a nice hot shower, while they are turning around going back to sit by garbage and search for food, but hey at least they got that bible right? lol come on get real. Some times I think us church people can get so in to the spiritual realm of things that we forget the natural side of things, lets use some common sense once in awhile!!!

I need to ask this and again with all do respect, but when your going on these mission trips or your laying hands on the sick or doing these other ministry/”spiritual things”, are you doing it to bless others and to be that light in those dark places, or are you doing it to show off to the pastor so you can get on the pulpit?

people are so addicted to wanting to be the center of attention and wanting to be on the pulpit that they totally loose focus on what’s important.  Do you want to be on the pulpit to share the word of GOD and to bless others and to help change lives? or do you want to be on the pulpit so you could feel important?

We all need to grow up and except that there are only four things that truly, truly, truly matter when your in ministry, #1 is that your blessing the people #2 is that your blessing the LORD and #3 is that your living a clean, biblical, spiritual filled lifestyle and #4 that your showing the love of CHRIST.  There is only one man you should idolize and that’s our LORD JESUS CHRIST.

I am not saying, not to honor or bless your pastor, honor and bless him or her with all your heart, but lets not loose sight in the fact that he or she is just your teacher, not your maker.  The LORD JESUS CHRIST is your maker, your creator.  So lets watch that we don’t start turning our pastor in to our idol!!! Leviticus 19:4 says: Do not turn to idols or make for yourselves molten GODS; I am the LORD your GOD.

He is the LORD your GOD, I will say it once more HE IS THE LORD YOUR GOD, lets stay focused on that.  When we go doing the LORDS work, lets really do the LORDS work, lets see through the eyes of LOVE, lets have compassion for others, and when we go to help the homeless lets feed them in every way.  spiritually, mentally, physically and naturally.  Lets love like he loves, Proverbs 8:17 says: I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me. You think if the LORD seen a homeless guy he would smile lay hands on them, hand them a bible and than walk away?? no he would care for them like any natural father would care for their child, because we are all GODS children.  You know a lot of movie stars and other types of people who are in the spotlight say that fame can become as addicting as a drug and I have to agree, I see that happening more in the churches every day, it breaks my heart when I see people like that, it is just so sad to me.

Lets stop focusing on what we want, lets focus on what the LORD wants, and like this video says: LET THE ARMY OF GOD ARISE and lets glow like those candles in this video , because we want to show the love of CHRIST and because we want his name heard, lets change lives people!!!! a lot of you who been reading my blogs know the number one reason for me making this blog site is because I am trying to take the step to get my name known so I can become a writer, but let me make it clear!!! my desire for doing this, is not to get my name known just to get it known and I do not want to become a writer just to become a writer, I want to become a writer and I am doing this, because I want to touch peoples lives and more importantly their hearts and I want to show them the LOVE OF CHRIST and I want to glow in those dark places and reach the unreachable and touch the untouchable, I want to be his instrument for no other reason but to glorify his name.

You know some people think being a missionary means you have to travel all across the globe to do so, I am sorry but I do not agree.  If you feel you are called to the missions, but yet cannot afford to travel, that’s fine, you can do missionary work right here in your own back yard, again being a missionary doesn’t mean you have to travel.  Being a missionary means you help others in need no matter or where you are, being a missionary means you show the love of CHRIST to others, and again you do that no matter where you are, being a missionary means, you guide them to our fathers love.

Being a missionary can mean so many different things, but one thing it doesn’t mean is you have to travel the world to be one, there is no rule saying you have to travel.  Yes there are countries in much worse shape than ours is in and countries that are in much greater need of help than us, but our country, the country I live in, which is the United States Of America, is in need of some help too and you can change lives here just as easily as you can anywhere else.

Your location is not what matters and is not what’s important, what’s important is that you show the love of CHRIST all the days of your life.  What is important is that we all GLOW BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN.  THE NAME OF JESUS IS ABOVE ALL OTHER NAMES SO LETS LIFT HIM HIGH AND PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS AND LETS SET THIS WORLD ON FIRE FOR HIM!!!! PRAISE HIS NAME. SEE YOU ALL NEXT WEEK. GOD BLESS YOU ALL. JESUS AND I BOTH LOVE YOU. GLOW LIKE FIRE EVERYONE PRAISE THE NAME OF JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Agreed. In some cultural circles of Christianity, some have a title of “Missionary” and do NO missions…similar to some who have a title of “Evangelist” (or other ministry roles) that do NO evangelism, etc.

    We can idolize ANYTHING that is placed in front of relationship with God, whether titles, roles, people, things, etc).

    Keep edifying the Body woman of God. Your reward is GREAT with HIM!
    Love,
    Vita
