I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"WILL YOU OBEY GOD, NO MATTER WHAT?" BY DAVID MCMILLEN

WILL YOU OBEY GOD, NO MATTER WHAT?

 

AREN'T YOU GLAD THAT JESUS CHOSE PAUL TO PREACH TO THE GENTILES AND THAT HE WAS OBEDIENT TO DO IT?  IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, THE TWELVE  DISCIPLES ARE WRITING AND TEACHING THE JEWS BUT PAUL, IN HIS THIRTEEN BOOKS OF THE BIBLE, IS WRITING TO THE GENTILES. THIS WAS A GENTLEMEN'S AGREEMENT AMONG THEM.  IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THIS WHEN WE ARE STUDYING THE BIBLE OR IT COULD GET A LITTLE CONFUSING.  IT WAS TO ME BEFORE I LEARNED THIS.  IN GALATIANS 2:9, PAUL TELLS OF THE HANDSHAKE, OR RIGHT HAND OF FELLOWSHIP AS PAUL CALLS IT, WHERE HE SAYS "And when James, Cephas, and John, who seemed to be pillars, perceived the grace that was given unto me, they gave to me and Barnabas the right hands of fellowship; that we (PAUL AND BARNABAS) should go unto the heathen (GENTILES), and they (JAMES, PETER, JOHN AND THE DISCIPLES) unto the circumcision (THE JEWS).  (THE PARENTHESES ARE MINE)







JESUS APPEARED TO ANANIAS IN A VISION AND TOLD HIM TO GO TO PAUL AND LAY HANDS ON HIM SO HE WOULD BE ABLE TO SEE.  HE WAS BLINDED WHEN JESUS APPEARED TO HIM ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS AND TOLD HIM HE WOULD PREACH TO THE GENTILES.  PAUL HAD BEEN SO AGAINST JESUS AND HIS TEACHINGS AND THOSE OF THE DISCIPLES AND EVEN HAD PAPERS FROM THE CHIEF PRIEST TO KILL OR THROW INTO PRISON THOSE WHO WERE WORSHIPING JESUS.  IF YOU WERE A JEW AND KNEW ABOUT PAUL'S ACTIVITY, WOULD YOU HAVE BEEN OBEDIENT, LIKE ANANIAS WAS, AND GO TO PAUL?  I HOPE I WOULD HAVE BEEN.  SEE WHAT JESUS TOLD HIM TO DO IN ACTS 9:15 "Go thy way for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel."  GOD KNEW THE HEARTS OF PAUL AND ANANIAS TO KNOW THEY WOULD BE OBEDIENT.



MY QUESTION IS THIS.  IS YOUR HEART OBEDIENT TO GOD'S COMMANDS?  REMEMBER, HE WILL NOT MAKE YOU DO ANYTHING BUT WANTS A WILLING HEART FULL OF LOVE FOR HIM.  I PRAY THAT WE ALL WILL BE THAT KIND OF PERSON THAT GOD WILL USE IN A MIGHTY WAY. 



GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
