|Bread of Life- Week 5|
**** Happy New Years ***
I want to say “Thank You” again for joining us this week. I hope that your week was a good one, and I want you to know that God has a blessing that is just for you.
We have two anointed and dynamic singers, (Na-Na & Ke-Ke), at our church that sing this song that really touches my heart every time they sing it. The song is called “I Just Can’t Give Up Now!” The song talks about our personal experiences in this life with God. It talks about our ups and our down’s; our good days and bad days, and it gives us a gratitude to God for how he has delivered us out of them all. It also talks about how God has been so good to us that it cause a statement to be declared in the song “I Don’t Believe He brought Me This Far to Leave Me!” And for this cause, I must declare to the whole world that “I Just Can’t Give Up Now!”
We have all been through lots of things in our lives; some we can talk about and others we wish to forget. But through the times that we were about to pull our hair out, have you ever just thought about who was holding us up during those times? Have you ever thought about the times where you said E-NUFF is Enough! Even during those times, who was it that kept you from loosing your mind? We know the answer and it was God. We know with out a shadow of a doubt that it was him all by himself. But what we should ask ourselves is how do we repay him? How do we show our gratitude for what he has done for our lives? Can I ask a question that will be directed at some? If God has done so much for us, shall we give up? Look, I know that times may get rough and hard, but
“We just can’t give up!”
You see, we owe so much to God; we can not repay him with a monitory value. But, we can repay him with our life dedicated to him. “Present ye your bodies as a living sacrifice, Holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service” RMS 12:1. Our lives must be a symbol and a token of our appreciation for the sacrifice that he gave for us, for “we were not purchased with corruptible thing such as silver and gold, but by the precious blood of the Lamb” 1Pet:18-19. Even after he has done all these great things for us, why give up now?
And why would he give us JESUS to shed his blood, to take away the sins of the world, and make a way for us to be with him in Heaven forever for you give up on him, die, and go to HELL?
