LET US THINK DEEPLY ON GOD’S GRACE

Think, Reflect, Meditate on the Goodness of God’s Grace: For if a man think himself to be something, when he is nothing, he deceives himself. Let every man prove his own work, then he shall have rejoicing in himself alone, not in another; every man will bear his own load (Galatians 6:3-5).

Let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not (9).  God‘s grace seasons our lives with aroma and flavor, his joy is never ending, it flows (moves as liquid) freely. Jesus says, “If any man thirst let him come unto me, and drink. He that believes on me, as the scripture has said, (think) out of his belly shall flow rivers of living (running) water (John 7:37-38). Think, reflect, and meditate on the goodness of God’s grace, the light source, and the energy flow ever present in our lives. It’s about total surrender and commitment, are you there yet?

Learn to think like Jesus:  Since Jesus went through everything we’re going through and more learn to think like him.  Treat everyone with dignity, love your spiritual family, Revere God and respect the Government. If we are treated badly for good behavior and continue on in spite of it be a good servant that is what counts with God. Think of how Christ suffered everything that came his way so that we could know that it can be done.  He was called every name in the book, yet he said nothing. He used his servant body to carry our sins to the Cross so we would be rid of sin, free to live the right way. His wounds became our healing; we were lost sheep with no idea of who we were or where we were going. Now we are named and kept for good by the Shepard of our souls (1 Peter: 11-25, MGS). Think, reflect, and meditate on the goodness of God’s grace.

No matter what society says or what our families, friends or neighbors may think, we are free to exercise within our hearts what is right for us. Of-course the process is not always easy nor the course smooth. We must prepare our hearts and minds because people might not like us if we don’t agree with them or if we make choices different from theirs. The fact is, we must be true to ourselves in order to be free of restraints imposed on us by others.  Scripture reminds us, “If with heart and soul you’re doing good, do you think you can be stopped, even if you suffer for it you’re better off, don’t give the opposition a second thought. Through thick and thin, keep your hearts at attention, in adoration before Christ, your Master” (1 Peter: 3: 13-18, MGS).

Remember, let this be your thought for living in this new year; Think, Reflect, Meditate on the Goodness of God’s Grace.  It was nothing but grace that brought us thus far, and it will be the same grace that sees us through the many trials and tribulations we will face throughout this year.  But never give up and never give in.  Always think on the goodness of God’s grace.

      God always have a Ram in the bush waiting to here those of us who are in need. That is why we really never know where our next blessing is coming from. Always give God the praise and the glory for whatever we get. We here at Vine and Branch are just His instruments to be used for His glory. We thank Him for using us and providing us with the tools He wants us to share with His people. Thank you for being a blessing to our souls. Keep your head to the sky and know that He is good all the time. Be Blessed my dear friend.
