Wretched Man

Have you ever felt that you do more talking? Have you ever noticed that people had some sort of non loving features about them? I feel that. And I am guilty just as anyone else. I probably can say a lot of things about someone, or I can say a lot about helping others that I forget why I am doing it for. I was performing a religion, trying to do an act to please God. Not thinking of grace I am going against a lot of people, mainly God. Sure, points that I have were validated, but that doesn’t mean I rant about it.

So guess what, I am not good enough for God

Romans 7:21-25 says: So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in Gods law, but I see another law at work in the members of my body, wagering in war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body of death? Thanks be to God-through Jesus Christ our Lord!

See the big issue is this, I fight sin (or try to) and because the speck in my eye (Matthew 7) I see others flaws than my own. I don’t see that I can divide more than I can multiply, I don’t love the way Jesus loves…just because I don’t have a window of opportunity open. I even step on toes and bash people when I don’t need to (unintentionally). The biggest thing to do is to help other people. Be open, be around, and be loving. I need to do that more often and so does the next guy

Look around, there is people around you, there is people on twitter that follow you who need help and that are looking. You ignore them, and pretend they aren’t there. There is a homeless guy that you walk by every day or there is someone in your church that is wanting to know God and they need help and someone to teach them. Be that window of opportunity.

The biggest thing to everyone is that Jesus is Lord and he saves. If I can get saved, so can you. THIS IS A COMMUNITY WHO NEEDS OTHERS! So lets be that window and love a little more. More mouth closed and more opening ears and listen. Lets tell the world about Jesus

What can you do better to help? I am closing with a song Monk and Neagle – The Twenty First Time

    Very poignant and powerful, Matt. It is very “easy” to walk on past and shut up the compassion in our hearts…not to “get involved.” We miss an opp to be the hands and feet of Jesus when we don’t. We also disobey part of the gospel…and we miss an opp to look into the eyes of Jesus. Matthew 25:40. Thx for sharing your thoughts.
