2ND CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 9 ONE THRU FIVE
1 Now about the service to the holy ones, it is superfluous for me to write to you, 2 for I know your eagerness, about which I boast of you to the Macedonians, that Achaia* has been ready since last year; and your zeal has stirred up most of them. 3 Nonetheless, I sent the brothers* so that our boast about you might not prove empty in this case, so that you might be ready, as I said, 4 for fear that if any Macedonians come with me and find you not ready we might be put to shame (to say nothing of you) in this conviction. 5 So I thought it necessary to encourage the brothers to go on ahead to you and arrange in advance for your promised gift, so that in this way it might be ready as a bountiful gift and not as an exaction.
We’re not supposed to worry about the rumors or small talk of others where we sometimes take it to a point of hairstyles, clothes or even shoes. We are told by God that it is unnecessary. Several passages in Scripture described this yet several discourses in Scripture describe non-judgment as the reason why it is unnecessary for us to be afraid of others comments as long as you place God First you’ll see others comments as their own incline for in celebrating Christ we look at each and everyone as someone divine created in the image of God doing upon a neighbor as one would do himself each time. Ones holy Paul realized did not mean to be treated any different than the way you live your life. You see most try to ignore Christ in the decisions we make knowing our mistakes will be hammered yet it is the belief of Paul to boast only in Jesus not others worries or delights not what they seem to think and believe are strife we must make Jesus first the primary source of all thoughts because even when a mistake is made tears are nothing to him. God wants confession of faith placing hope around the love we live for Salvation. Here, we must never deny Him and you will see this conviction in those you surround yourselves with whether they’re Macedonians or Homesteadians God has a zeal that you boast without shame brothers and sisters encouraged lifted up ready with a gift bountiful originating from Salvation. As Paul, live Redeemed in Christ. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and Rose for me. Prayer intentions. IN Jesus Name. Amen.
I am a poet obedient to Christ,
