Only Christ Can Keep Us From Slacking

If you slack off on a day of distress,
    your strength is small indeed.
Yes, rescue those being dragged off to death —
    won’t you save those about to be killed?
If you say, “We knew nothing about it,”
    won’t he who weighs hearts discern it?
Yes, he who guards you will know it
    and repay each one as his deeds deserve.
Proverbs 24:10-12 CJB

Today is "a day of distress."  The only rescue for "those being dragged off to death" is faith in Jesus Christ.  He is the only one who can "save those about to be killed."

Those of us who know The Truth:  Do we not know this to be true?

"He who weighs hearts" can most certainly discern our understanding.

We can do nothing in our own strength.  We need the help of Christ.  Only The Holy Spirit can keep us from slacking on this day of distress.  Let us pray and receive His mighty help today.

PRAYER:  Father God, in the mighty name of Jesus.  Thank you for helping us to overcome our fleshly desires.  Thank you for searching our hearts, molding us per Your will, leading us, and emboldening us to be witnesses of The Truth in these days of distress.  Please let us not shy away from Your opportunities.  Please remove the distractions from our minds and keep us focused on Your perfect will - to lift up and live in the example of Your Son Christ Jesus in Your Word.  In every thing - in every way - we seek to serve You.  We are in need of understanding.  We need to understand Your will clearly.  Please God, help us to understand and serve You as You please.  Thank You for guarding us.  Please help us not to be slackers.  Our strength is small indeed.  But You are mighty.  Thank you for loving us and being patient with us.  Thank You for forgiving us and saving us.  Thank You for helping us lead as many as possible to their rescue in Christ Jesus.  Amen.

"Behold, the LORD'S hand is not shortened, that it cannot save; neither his ear heavy, that it cannot hear:"  Isaiah 59:1

Thank you Father for your righteousness in Christ Jesus.

The Best Way To Teach Is Hands On

Jesus Christ of Nazareth said:  "And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover."
Mark 16:17-18 KJV...  Believe thou this?

Jesus Christ Leads From The Front

"But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the first fruits of them that slept" (1 Corinthians 15:20). 

Commentary by Greg Stier at The Christian Post:
The best leader of all time, Jesus Christ himself, led from the front. He boldly took on the religious establishment of his day without flinching. He stood up for the poor and oppressed when nobody else would. He challenged the stone-throwing hypocrites by protecting a scarlet-lettered woman, putting himself in harm’s way so that she could be saved. He wrapped himself in a towel and washed the dirty feet of his disciples to show them how to lead from the front. He got mud on his 'uniform' and then he got blood on it.

He led the charge for the transformation of the human race by picking up his cross and dragging it to his death. In the heat of battle he lost his life and won the war. He taught us how to win by losing and how to live by dying. He showed us how to lead from the front.

Leading from the front is the most effective way to lead a family, a ministry or a company. Let’s not be afraid of heavy lifting. Let’s not delegate the calluses or splinters. Instead let us, like Jesus, fill our hands with both as we pick up our crosses and die to ourselves so that others can be victorious.
"And he [Jesus Christ] said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me" (Luke 9:23).

"For God sent not his Son [Jesus Christ] into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved" (John 3:17).

Paul The Apostle encourages us: "Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ" (1 Corinthians 11:1).
