BE MINDFUL TO BE A BLESSING - PART 2
FRIDAY 07 JULY 2023
In this present world, understand that God's precious children are given the blessing to be a blessing but for a little time because Jesus will soon be back to collect all of God's little children. How happy would it be if all children understand the privilege of being a blessing and extending their blessing to others.
Reference: Galatians 6:9 New Living Translation (NLT) "So let's not get tired of doing what is good. At just the right time we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up."
To expound the above Scripture with ardent alacrity, I have divided it into 3 segments, and they are as follows:
1. So let's not get tired in doing what is good. 2. At just at the right time. 3. We will reap a harvest of blessing if we don't give up.
"So let's not get tired of doing what is good" is what today's article is all about. Not being tired of doing good is symbolic of producing fruits of righteousness through a Spirit-led life, bearing in mind that our harvest of blessing comes from God.
Although apostle Paul was speaking to all the churches of Galatia, not just a particular congregated church, this truth is for all the elect of God, the general assembly and church of the first born, whose names are written in heaven and are scattered all over the earth - at the present moment. It is for all the saints, created anew in Christ, and are being raised and built on Christ, the solid foundation.
To that effect, Ephesians 2:10 noted, "For we are God's handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do" (NIV). In other words, you are created anew, under the most sacred obligation to live for God - by participating in good works He specially designed for you ahead of time.
The materials used in building our faith for good works are the Word and the Spirit, and for this reason, Paul noted, shortly before our referenced Scripture, in Galatians 6:6 saying, "Those who are taught the word of God should provide for their teachers, sharing all good things with them" (NLT).
Beloved, "So let's not get tired of doing what is good" is a rewarding instruction that carries "higher dimension" harvest when tiredness is continually subdued, transcended, and overcome in the process of time, because tiredness is a weariness that involves lack of energy and enthusiasm for doing what is good, both physical or mental. And when it comes to doing good, you can function above it by living the Spirit-led life because weariness is part of human nature.
Beloved, you are no better than others when it comes to doing good, except you wholly function by the Spirit, who makes you more fit for it, than others. That way, you are singled out and separated from the rest, according to the sovereign will of God, to continue well in doing good, by His powerful and efficacious grace. Got it?
When you participate in doing good, it proves that you have moved beyond just learning and cogitating on the Word, and have come to a level of understanding how it works, thereby putting it into practice (as good works), which denotes the mature stage of comprehension of Biblical truths. Stay tuned for part 3 of this wonderful topic. Shalom!

Exuberant Declaration: I am God's masterpiece. He has created me anew in Christ Jesus, so I can do the good things He planned for me long ago. Hallelujah!
