Be a good soldier !

Blessed be the LORD my strength, which

 

(2 Timothy 2:1 to 10)

“1   Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.

2   And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.

3   Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

4   No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.

5   And if a man also strive for masteries, yet is he not crowned, except he strive lawfully.

6   The husbandman that laboureth must be first partaker of the fruits.

7   Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

8   Remember that Jesus Christ of the seed of David was raised from the dead according to my gospel:

9   Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

10   Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. “

 

Moral: God has called and chosen us for His eternal purpose to be fulfilled in our life. In this spiritual journey, we must pray and fight in prayers to obtain the eternal life. We must not always seek others for prayer help. God wants to teach us so that we alone need to fight in prayer to grow in spiritual life. we know the victory is ours, because our Jesus Christ Have already defeated the Satan on cross. God also expects that we must pray for the salvation of unsaved persons, let god give us grace to pray.

“Blessed be the LORD my strength, which teacheth my hands to war, and my fingers to fight:” (Ps 144:1)

You are a chosen one :-)

Many times we think we have chosen  Jesus Christ as our God. The reality is Jesus Christ has chosen us before the creation of world.

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love: ” Eph 1:4

Jesus Christ has only one purpose in our life is to give us “eternal life”, which man lost in the eden garden. But after Adam fell, God’s hope didn’t fail, Jesus Christ came in human form set a perfect example, and died on cross and resurrected to open a way to eternal life. 

Tit 1:2 In hope of eternal life, which God, that cannot lie, promised before the world began; 

Let God give us Grace to attain that eternal life.

The Answer to our question is

John 19:30-” When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.”

In most of times when God delays to answer our prayer we say ”why God has not done ?” That to me. Our request may be good job, house, good health, business, education, many things. There can be two reasons why God delays to answer 1. That is not God’s will  2. God is testing our faith on Him. But one thing is true most of time what we ask God belongs to this world, all are temporal things. We often forget eternity and worry about present temporary things. In the above verses Jesus Christ said “it is finished” shows that He have finished everything, He shed till His last drop of blood on cross for our sake. He have finished everything not only for our temporary life but for Eternal Life. “First seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then rest shall be added unto you” . Let us not say God have not done that or this, instead pray fervently and praise Him always so that we can receive His blessing.
