Guy writes, "1 Corinthians 10:13 declares that hardships and trials come into our lives, not to break us, but to build and strengthen us that we might persevere and ultimately overcome."
Guy writes, "However there is an additional dimension even beyond humbly serving. In verse 18 Yeshua makes a troubling statement..."
Guy writes, "One conclusion from these verses, is that when we give to the poor we give to the Lord. When we have a heart for the broken, we are not giving to the broken but to the Lord."
Guy writes, "In the first chapter of John we read of a man sent from God to bear witness of the Light. Yeshua is the true Light which gives light to every person in the world. We go on to read that the world did not know him and that even His own did not receive Him (John 1:10-11)."
Guy writes, "Only through our identity in Yeshua will we stand in times of trouble, persevering with Him until the end. Otherwise we may find ourselves rejecting the very one who is our identity."
Guy writes, "When Yeshua comes and wipes the tears from our eyes, He will look through them as the window into our soul."
Guy writes, "How do we teach a generation of children to go against the flow? How do we as believers, raise them to be at peace with their apparently conflicting identities: both 'in the world' and also 'not of it?'"
Guy writes, "There is no such thing as a life without some kind of effort and struggle. These difficulties can drive the believer who is well trained in the Word of God, to trust in the Lord's overall plan and to stand fast, declaring victory."
We all tend to label people by their ethnicity, gender, nation of birth and outward appearance – often forgetting that we are all created in the image of God. Only when we invite ONE IN YESHUA Him into our heart and are rescued from our sinful life, then we will see peace.
