Practice, Practice, Practice!

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

I'd like to share what God told me some time ago..."Practice, practice, practice!" Patience and Love take practice. Practice making choices that involve putting others' needs and desires above yours. This won't happen by accident. You MUST do it ON PURPOSE! Hebrews 5:14 in the Amplified says it like this...But solid food is for full-grown men, for those whose senses and mental faculties are trained by practice to discriminate and distinguish between what is morally good and noble and what is evil and contrary either to divine or human law.

Jesus lived His life practicing choices that put others' needs above His own so He would be ready and able to make the ULTIMATE choice for us ALL. As Jesus was mocked and insulted by the criminal on the cross: "aren't you The Messiah? Save Yourself and us", He knew He could not save Himself if He was to follow through with God's perfect plan. He chose God's perfect plan and HE CHOSE US! HALLELUJAH! This week as we celebrate the Passion, the Death, and Resurrection of our Lord and Savior, let us be ever mindful of this choice.

Here is something to meditate on...When you practice making Christ-like choices, you get A LOT less practice in repentance.
Have a Blessed Easter Week! Rick

    Practice making Christ like decisions.

    This reminds me of the challenge today where I felt like I have given and given and given and received nothing in return; in fact, felt like I've been kicked in the teeth. Today, I received another blow and I cried out to God and said, "how much do I need to give?" He reminded me that Jesus gave it all for me, before I loved him, while I still "kicked him in the teeth." So I made the decision to continue giving. It's what Jesus did.
