Signed Sealed Delivered, I’m Yours Lord, 15Jan
Romans 13:1 “Let every person be in subjection to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God and those which exist are established by God.”
Matthew 22:21 Jesus said: “Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.”
Render to God the things that are God’s – well that’s a lot – that’s EVERYTHING for His purpose… That includes our time, mind, purpose.
Our time – and what we do – belong to God. He’s in control, but that doesn’t mean we get a cushy lifestyle to our standards… Some may say it’s debatable whether the Lord is a micromanager, yet we know angels work the system… His angels are tasked for work we can’t even dream of, we have no idea, but sometimes we see the result of tweaking the system.
Our mind – we need to focus on God’s will. We also have to be willing to be tweaked by the system. I’m not saying we understand it all, but we have to be listening to be shepherded. “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me. . . . My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me” John 10:14, 27
Our purpose – we need to listen, and hear the call to be “fishers of men” type disciples… We need to walk humbly, love mercy, and seek justice for all God’s children (Micah 6:8)… Perhaps the most important start is to share the Word by action and voice… Plant seeds – let God water… LOVE others as God commands… LOVE GOD…
“Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s; and to God the things that are God’s.”
Love does make the world go around because LOVE is from God… Love is the good stuff that belongs to God – it’s for sharing!
