What Would Jesus Have You Do?

     In 2 Thessalonians 3:1-5 quoted below we read that God is faithful.  Most of us don’t realize the faithfulness of God.  We look at our own faithfulness and do a comparison, and we don’t do bad, better than most, but not quite as good as others.
      However, the problem is we never compare ourselves to God. God never misses church.  God never fails to bless you (tithe).  God never fails at anything, yet we all are miserable failures.
      That is our problem and we need to correct it.  God sent His Son Jesus as an example for us to follow.  We all must know we cannot be exactly like Him, because we are sinners and He never sinned.  Yet, you and I are to use Him as an example for our lives.  
      A few years ago there were bracelets given out and sold with “WWJD” imprinted on them.  The acronym “WWJD” stood for “What Would Jesus Do?”   So the next time sniffles, or the sleepies are trying to keep you home from church, or when that offering plate is passed, or when the call is made for helping in support of Missions ask yourself “What Would Jesus Have You Do?”
      While you are considering, and I hope praying about “What Would Jesus Have You Do?” remember what God has done for you.  I know, “Bro John I am so pitiful and poor and God has just passed me by.”  Do understand, I don’t believe a Christian gets passed over by God. Christian’s are of God and they are blessed by Him, because He is faithful.
      It all boils down to our faithfulness, or lack thereof.  It still come down to you and I and what we are willing to give of ourselves to God.

(Hebrews 11:6)  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

Consider seeking His will, and attempt to do “What Jesus Would Have You Do?”

2 Thessalonians 3:1-5  Finally, brethren, pray for us, that the word of the Lord may have free course, and be glorified, even as it is with you:  (2)  And that we may be delivered from unreasonable and wicked men: for all menhave not faith.  (3)  But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.  (4)  And we have confidence in the Lord touching you, that ye both do and will do the things which we command you.  (5)  And the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God, and into the patient waiting for Christ.
