Hello lovelies, happy Sunday, here’s another one from my Journal 😁.
I’m currently laying in bed and I got stuck on this scripture in the bible, 1 Corinthians 9 that’s not what I’m here to rant about. So in a bid to understand the meaning behind that chapter I started reading chapters 8,7,6,5 and then i go to chapter 10, 11, 12 and I stumbled on a number of things that the present Christian community do not understand and are missing out on. Let’s go to 1 Corinthians 12:7-12 ( If you don’t have a bible with you, don’t worry, there’s a picture of the scripture below)
To each person the holy spirit gives a gift, could be healing, prophecy, miracles, speaking and interpreting tongues, spirit of discernment and the list goes on. The holy spirit decides who and what spirit he gives. Just the same way the eyes, ear, nose, tongue, head, leg and other parts of the body make up the body and help the body function properly with their various and different specific functions, is the same way each and every individual in the church or in the society as Christians should come together and grow as one. One man with a gift of healing and another with a gift of prophesy or faith can bring about change, can bring about turn around through the power of our Lord Jesus Christ. When there is enemity and chaos and conflict, then we as Christians cannot become the body of Christ, even as individuals, we cannot become one and grow in harmony. In some cases the devil may sow seed of jealousy or conflict or misunderstandings or hate or envy just so that there is positivity or progress. I don’t know if I’m communicating with someone here. God brings people into your life or should I say he makes your path cross with someone else’s because he has a purpose. For every one you meet or cross paths with there is a purpose and until that purpose is fulfilled or manifested you should not detach or separate from the person. See when the devil knows that God has a divine purpose in your relationship with people he will try to sow negative seeds in a bid to terminate that purpose, it is up to you to fight the devil and bring about fulfilment of God’s purpose.
Even as individuals in the society, you can’t possibly have all it takes to be great, you can’t have all it takes to bring about change, you can’t have all it takes to change a particular story. Instead of allowing the seed of jealousy, hate, envy e.t.c germinate in you, why not alternate it with the seed of love. Some may say, every one cannot just align to a custom or to a particular belief or way of life, at the end of the day it’s what works for you and what your aim really is. What if you just don’t like certain people or you don’t move smoothly with certain people, when you’re crucified to the world, these things don’t matter anymore, what matters most is the impact you make. So rather than bringing yourself down with hate and the like, use your gifts to bring about positivity
