Your Obedience….Lives Depend On It

Have you ever been disobedient?  Instructed to do something by some figure of authority and just flat out didn’t do it? It’s something we have all been guilty of at some point in our lives.   You don’t have to walk this earth too long before you find yourself committing that all too familiar offense of disobedience.  You may have disobeyed your parents in childhood, that supervisor on the job or even worse the Lord God Almighty Himself.  It’s one thing if you bear the consequences of your own disobedience, but what if your disobedience negatively impacted others?  Would you be more cognizant or intentional about obeying if the direction of someone’s life rested in your obedience?

The Lord has been gently nudging me to do a health blog.  I didn’t directly refuse to do it per se.  But let’s just say I have been delaying it 🙂 However, since I wasn’t going to get off that easily, He brought back to my remembrance a revelation He gave me way back in November  2012 in regards to the following scripture, as He was instructing Noah about building the ark:

Genesis 6:20, (NKJV)= Of the birds after their kind, of animals after their kind and of every creeping thing of the earth of it’s kind, two of every kind will come to you to keep them alive.

I tell you this was such a revelation to me!  Ladies and gentleman do you realize that the Lord is sending people of all types, from all walks of life to us and He is using us to keep them alive?   It is our responsibility to keep them alive. This will mean different things for different people.  We may be called to keep them physically alive by our medical training and gifts in healing; keep them alive by interceding in prayer; keep them alive  by teaching and sharing knowledge; being a conduit of God’s love— healing their broken souls and spirits in speaking a kind word or simply being a  light in the dark places.  But ultimately and most importantly we keep them alive by showing the way to salvation and eternal life in Christ Jesus. We are living in detrimental times and lives are literally dependent on us. Dependent on our obedience to God, obedience to His direction and obedience to fulfilling our purpose in this life on earth.  We truly have to  become  so alive in Christ that we can in turn be used to bring life to others.  Let us pray God grants us the grace and ability to save every life He puts in our path for His glory.

So I end by saying, in the spirit of obedience I have taken the first step in beginning my health blog, When You Consider Your Body God’s Temple available at http://www.asalivingsacrifice.wordpress.com.  I thank you for your support and prayers in advance as I embark on this next leg of the journey to answer the call.  Please know that obedience to the Master will always cause you to rise….and yet still I rise.

With peace and blessing may you continue to rise always,
