We are in a season where most of the world remembers the life giver, some people who do not give Jesus a second thought throughout the year are forced in some way shape or form to hear about Jesus now.
The fact that that the giver of life, gave his life for us is more than enough reason why we should worship him.
He was born, which means we have a hope for our eternal destiny:
For this is the way God loved the world:He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
There is nothing that the life giver cannot help us with if we have faith in him, it does not matter what the situation is, Jesus is more than capable of taking us through it.
This time of the year can be very hard for some people who maybe have lost loved ones throughout the year. Also people who are dealing with sickness can find this time of the year challenging. However we serve a God who comforts the broken hearted and bring relief to the sick:
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart:and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
The life giver did not promise us a problem free life, however through his Holy Spirit, he has given us the ability to develop character through hardship, so that our lives can bring glory to God:
I pray not that thou shouldest take them out of the world, but that thou shouldest keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through thy truth:thy word is truth.
Sometimes people look for things specifically identified in the Bible and because they can not find them, they feel that the bible does not address that particular area. However Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever more and there is nothing that takes him by surprise. Applying specific laws and principals to the situation, can allow us to deal with it a lot better, this is character building:
Galatians 5: 22-23
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, a quiet mind, kind acts, well- doing, faith, Gentle behaviour, control over desires:against such there is no law
But those who are waiting for the Lord will have new strength; they will get wings like eagles:running, they will not be tired, and walking, they will have no weariness.
The life giver knows the plans that he has for you (Jeremiah 29:11), so we have to trust him in that. So as we decrease and allow him to increase in our lives, we will handle situations a lot better.
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late,
to eat the bread of sorrows:
for so he giveth his beloved sleep
When we worry, we do not act in faith, we act in fear and fear will paralyze faith every time. So the best way to deal with fear is to do what the life giver did and that is to love extraordinarily.
Parallel Business Principals
The law of giving is paramount to the success of a Reliv distributor, because the more you give of yourself to your team, is the more successful you will be. If you take time to work with those people who want to work, it will pay you dividend in the years to come. Jesus our life giver invested 3 ½ years into his disciples before they were ready to launch out on their own.
If all you do is worry that you cannot build this business, then you will not build this business. If you do the things you are supposed to do and plug into the system, then you will not have anxious toil but you will understand that God is in control of your business and you will have restful sleep.
Situations are going to arise as we do our business, however if we have built it correctly, then we will get through that season to the other side and continue to excel!
