Bible Blessings® knows the wonderful responsibility of Christian Gifts March 25 2014
Bible Blessings® knows Christian gifts come with great responsibility. Being a Christian is not always easy in today’s world, and it is important to remember why we are blessed with the many Christian gifts bestowed upon us because of our faith and belief in our religion.
Finding Blessings and Gifts in unexpected places
Joshua and Caleb faced formidable foes in the Promised Land, and yet what was their response to their enemies? “They are bread for us” Numbers 14:9.
What is bread? It is the staff of life. What happens when you eat bread? You are strengthened by it and you grow by it.
Paul also faced formidable foes. In Corinthians we read Paul’s words: “For a great door and effectual is opened unto me, and there are many adversaries” 1:16:9.
Why don’t gifts come easy to those that believe in Christianity? Because if they were easy, then you would become weak in your effort to work out your faith in God and would be less appreciative of the gifts you do receive. God places obstacles in your path to give you strength.
“Wheaties” is not the breakfast of champions— giants are. God wants you to face your difficulties head-on and depend upon Him to make you a conqueror.
What does it take to strengthen your body? What does it take to build your intellect? What does it take to grow love in relationships?
Indeed, God does amazing and unexplainable things, but there will come a time – or it may have already transpired – when you realize that Christianity doesn’t immediately solve all your problems. Illnesses don’t always go away. Broken relationships don’t always get better. Your income doesn’t miraculously improve thanks to a big fat monetary gift in the mail. Simply put, troubles don’t just up and disappear.
So what does it take? Work. Hard work and a commitment to your faith and sharing your faith. Remember the words in Philippians 2:12-13: “Therefore, my dear friends, as you have always obeyed—not only in my presence, but now much more in my absence—continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act in order to fulfill his good purpose.”
