Judging a Message that Blesses — 1 Comment

  1. This fits to an experience of yesterday morning. Your message here was not yet on the page, and what I share is not for my own honor. It`s about the church sermon ! So in short words: I had to work on Sunday, an our Missionary church has live-stream every Sunday morning at 10 am, and yesterday, Monday, I listened and watched a precious sermon about Job`s suffering and how his friends, who truly came to visit him in his pain, how they were so shocked how much he suffered. They cried 7 days with him, even could not speak. But the complete message was: Every one had his idea, why Job suffered this huge sickness. BUT…. no one was right. They judged him even, for his loss of his children, that God would have done this. BUT… before everything happened, there was a conversation of satan and God about Job. And I think all know, that satan wanted his triumph that Job would give up his life, his faith, and would die. BUT GOD – GOD turned this out triumphantly for his servant Job ! So after that sermon I wrote a personal message to the phone of our church leader, whose brother gave this most precious sermon, and I asked him, please to give thanks and greetings further to his brother, because I do not know his phone number. Though the church is at a retreat in another country this week, the pastor answered during 3 minutes, that surely he will send my blessing to his brother. Next Sunday will be part 2 of the message, and the preacher surely enjoys a good confirmation. The sermon was very clear, very powerful, and it was an exhortation against false accusations and judgments to the weary ones among the body of Christ. Many do not or cry 1 tear with their sisters and brothers. They avoid them instead of embracing them. They hurt them behind their backs through gossip and even spread rumors, instead of visiting them and sitting beside the bed or bringing them anything good, may it be a silent handshake or a warm hug. Most of the congregation are very friendly brothers and sisters, are true believers. But we ALL need the sermons, even the strongest ministers, elders, the whole body, from head to foot. Before the trone we are all the same. God makes no difference. ALL have fallen short the glory sometimes. So a good sermon is hard work, and we should bless our preachers.
