^ okay, here comes a essay so be warned! wow. honestly when I read this I just stopped and well BREATHED! I don’t have many followers so I know I’m not talking to many but I feel god is just incredible! (okay, I’m side tracking, back to what I have to say)
On Friday the 14th I went to a youth conference, and well the message was that we need to be “DEAD MEN/WOMEN WALKING” now hear me out, because I had to listen to this mans reasonings as to why we were “DEAD MEN/WOMEN WALKING” and he had some valid points. This is what I got from the serman and what I understood from the verse above.
1. we were created to be gods shepards, not to be individual. He gave us free will to choose wether or not we wanted to follow him, and by accepting, we become shepards (leaders) created to lead the flock.. (people that haven’t found god) What a responcability hey!? but we don’t have to do it alone “God promises that he will never leave us, nor forsake us”
2. Forget about the fear, forget about the reputation because the rewards on heaven from what you do now, on earth is greater then you can imagine! - think about it, we have to get a few rejections, loose a couple of mates or whatever it is. But god knows our hearts and he rewards that, (atleast thats what my mum says :P)
3. It starts now, (weird point I know) but so often I find my self in love with a verse and feel so energized just to get out and save the world, then i wake up and it means nothing anymore. But this isn’t one of those things I’m just going to brush off! And I encourage all to join me, be “DEAD MEN/WOMEN WALKING” be a “LIVING SACRIFICE” because what could be a greater honnour then to be living for GOD? Forget the fear, the rejection, the reputation because whatever anybody throws at you will bounce off when you have god by your side!
