Marius Oberholster Hey! I'm having an incredible learning experience, not only learning how Blender works (yes, still learning), but also about Open-Source and the incredible software available. Stick around!

A little sharing

Posted by Marius Oberholster on Tuesday, July 17, 2012 Under: Teaching and prayer
Yes this is about JESUS, but not in the way you may think.

Tonight I watched a video from a friend (more acquaintance, but actually family) where he was passionately talking about the world and it just perishing while Christians stand by in selfishness just not caring... And the idea of the video was not to guilt anyone into anything, but it was to prod the Family to care. While I do have an extreme passion for the lost and while HE has me in training and, hopefully soon, release, I still have reaching the lost as a main goal.

But I have to also share that I do struggle with selfishness in this area. I want to see JESUS face to face more than I can say and for HIM to be proud of me for the heart HE put in me and works HE inspired me to, but sometimes this desire, though not ungodly, does become out of control and I just plead to come Home. Every time HE just calmly says no, that HE still needs me here and there is still too much to do. I know that to be the case, because HE laid out a good plan for every human being and all we have to do is walk it out, and until that race has been completed, my time here is not yet up. The problem though is that it is selfishness to want to just leave the world to perish while I'm in the best place ever. It's selfishness to want to make another brother or sister have to pick up the slack, because I didn't want to fulfill HIS plan.

So that motive is changing into what it should be, which is being here because HE wants me here for now, whether I like it or not. I am not here for me, but for HIS glory and spreading the Gospel. Sometimes, it is in the Kingdom's best interest that we don't get what we want, no matter how wonderful it may be for us personally.

I want to ask you to examine your motives and see whether you are living to please yourself or GOD. If you have slipped into the same selfishness mindset, repent, change it and start following HIS reasons for you being here.
GOD loves you and as part of the Body of CHRIST, we as believers are very much needed here on earth to show WHO and WHAT HE really is and the reason why we say we love HIM so much.

FATHER, today I pray for the Body and I ask that our words and our deeds will line up to glorify YOU! May our excellence make the world hungry for YOU. May our love for one another show us true disciples of YOU.
in JESUS' Name, Amen!

"For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen."
Revelation 22:18-21
