#Focusing On The Road Set Before You#
There are many things which can distract and draw your attention from the things that you are to be doing. Many times relationships can surprise you and take a turn for the worst, and become perhaps quiet damaging. It is time to step away from such things after trying to reconcile and adjust to new rhythms and styles. This is one distracting things which can consume a lot of our daily lives, but we need to be ready to go the extra mile time and again. It seems like a huge ask when things aren’t that pleasant and there is constant strife in the relationship. Strife means, “a differing on fundamental principles”. It is the thing Jesus was speaking of when he said, “and the enemies of a mans life will be the members of his own household”. And again when he speaks about “dividing two against three”, and “mother against son, and daughter against her father”. These speak about a change in direction. See when Christ comes into our lives, his truth permeates ALL of our existence. Everything becomes different, and the way we think changes. This is also known as the renewing of your mind. We cannot exercise friendship with the things that are evil and be a trusted companion of God’s. It is impossible. You will be in both camps and God says he will spit out the lukewarm on the day of judgement. Our loyalties now rest with the King. Even though our families might revile us or reject us it is important to not loose heart, and remember Jesus Christ went through all these same things, and this is the reason he spoke of them. Praise God for that! I love Jesus for leading us on the straight and narrow road. The bible actually calls that way, “narrow and hard is the way which leads to life”. It is tough man, and it sometimes gets immensely hard, but there is always hope in the Father. Hallelujah. Amen.
God bless you in the Love of Christ,
