It is a rare privilege to be in a position to help the poor and the needy; to help anyone who is in need; to render services to others; and to tell others about JESUS CHRIST. What a Privilege!!! What a Blessing!!! Don’t Take It For Granted.
When you know this Truth, you will be happy doing it and you will do it in Love and by so doing; you will be honoring and glorifying GOD ALMIGHTY for given you such a privilege to help or serves others.
JESUS CHRIST our LORD and SAVIOR said, “For the Son of Man also came not to be saved but to serve, and to give His life as ransom for many (Mark 10:45). If I then your LORD and TEACHER, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you…..if you know these things, blessed are you if you do them (John 13:14-17).”
For it is written, “It is blessed to give than to receive. Give, and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap.” So you can clearly see that the blessing is on the one who give, who serves others, who help others and who care for others. Again JESUS said “… the measure you give will be the measure you get, and still more will be given you (Mark 4:24).” What a privilege! What a blessing! Don’t take it for granted.
It is a privilege and a grace to get up in the morning and there is someone (your neighbor, friends, wife/husband, children, siblings, relatives, colleagues or customers) that you can greet and say good morning, I love you, how are you today? How was your night? How was your day? How are you feeling today? When you know that this is a privilege and a grace from GOD ALMIGHTY, you will never take it for granted; and even when they may hurt you or make you angry, you will not stop loving and greeting them. When you know and accept this truth, immediately pride will leave you, boasting will leave you and arrogant will run away from you. And you will start living a life of Love, a life of humility and sincerity. Your life will be GOD’S Life. For it is written, “GOD is LOVE.” What a privilege! What a blessing! Don’t take it for granted.
Again, it is a rare privilege to be persecuted for CHRIST’s sake. So rejoice in your trails and persecutions. For it is written, “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you when men revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in Heaven, for so men persecuted the prophets who were before you (Matthew 5:10-11).” What a privilege! What a blessing! Don’t take it for granted.
When you know these and you accept it in your heart, you will stop complaining in your trails and persecutions, and instead you will be rejoicing because you know who you are in CHRIST JESUS and the reward of it.
Thank You LORD for Thy WORD today in JESUS NAME.
CHRIST in me the Hope of Glory.
JESUS IS LORD.
