Good Tuesday afternoon healing team!
I hope that you had a great Father’s Day weekend.
Did you know who is the author of Amazing Grace?
Answer is John Newton. I did not know that until I googled it this morning.
Amazing grace how sweet the sound
that saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost but now am found,
was blind but now I see.
Title of John 9:1-12 is Jesus heals a man born blind.
John 9:41- Jesus said, “If you were blind, you would not be guilty of sin; but now that you claim you can see, your guilt remains.
When I was back in Japan, or even in the U.S. before I came to know Christ, HE was still working in me. But I di d not know that was HIS work. I thought I did everything. I was blind.
After coming to know Christ, (it took me a while but) I started to see that HE is the one do all the work and was able to seeHIS work spiritually.
If we claim that we see HIS work, we got some work to do. You are responsible for your sins unless you accept HIM to come into your life.
John 15:5 5 “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
I thought I was healing patients, but it is not me. HE heals you though me.
John 15:16- You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.
He appointed us with our specific gifts. He chose you with a certain gift. I belie ve we all have a gift to help others. I can help you all with your pain and aches, you may be gifted in helping others to learn (teachers and pastors etc), you may be gifted in protecting others (police officers, firemen and women, and all the men and women works in military or being dad or mom), you maybe gifted in making people smile or laugh (maybe just being you, you know who you are, yes all of you!!).
You do not know what your gift is? I was there. I did not know what was my gift or it was there and I did not realize that was my gift. First, claim you can see so you can see your gift when it is there until then, Just remain in HIM. You will find it. Just remain.
That’s why John 16:17 finishes with this- “This is my command: Love each other.”
We all got our gift from HIM to make this world better place to live while we are here. We are here to love each other to help one another with your gift blessed by HIM. Spread HIS love.
Remember, your fruit (gift) never gets old. It will stay fresh as long as you remain in HIM. We use our gift differently in a different season of our life so keep it.
It is up to you to keep your fruit fresh for your brothers and sisters to bite whenever they are hungry.
Remain in Him, love each other so you will bear fruit (gift) that will last forever (to help each other).
Have a great week!
