Encouragement

Sometimes I find all the talk about the judgement that is here and the judgement that will be here can leave me in a state of hopelessness. A hopelessness for those who do not know the Lord; Christ as their Savior.

It’s in these times I often have to remind myself that we are His vessels upon this earth, here not by our own power but for His power to be worked and revealed through us.
We alone are nothing, empty vessels. But we, knowing Him, are filled with the Spirit, given to us by the Father.
There are many more vessels that have yet to be revealed. Many more that will also be filled with the Spirit in His good timing. Many revealed that have not yet been filled.

And it is for those vessels and for the glory of God that we keep on and pursue that which we have been given.

There is much hope, and all hope in Christ. What we do now forms and shapes the future for those future vessels to come forth, not by our own power but through His.

Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfil the law of Christ.
For every man shall bear his own burden.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.
And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Galatians  6:2, 5, 8-10
