NO CIRCUMSTANCE IS TOO DIFFICULT

“There are no Christians nowadays. None!  We just have crooks, thieves, prostitutes, womanisers…no Christians,” John was saying to his 3 friends while enjoying a beer. “You are very right. Christianity went with the apostles of old,” Andrew chipped in. John, Andrew, Daniel discussed the subject at length but it was only Richard who had not commented on the issue the three colleagues were discussing and this prompted John to ask him why he was silent.“I agree guys that today’s Christians are rotten,” he said and sipped his beer, “But I know of one Christian and she is my wife. Oh this woman is the real Christian.” His 3 friends went into gaffes of laughter “You r a joke man. Which Christian woman would allow his husband to go boozing?” Andrew asked amid laughs. “I know it doesn’t make sense,” Richard said, “But my wife is a Christian. She lets me live my life. She doesn’t talk to me about anything biblical. She doesn’t curse me. She respects me as her husband and always asks for permission when going to church, to use the car and lot things. She keeps washing my clothes. She has never thrown away any beer in the fridge because she is a Christian. She has never refused me sex because I am drunk. That woman is a Christian.” His friends stopped laughing. “You really mean this?” Daniel asked, “I think she claims she is Christian because you haven’t really tested her faith. She is pretending.” “No. No. No. She doesn’t pretend. She just lives the life of a Christian,” Richard defended. “What if we really test her faith? To see if she is the real deal?” Andrew dead-panned “I would not to treat my wife that way. She is a good woman. She respects me and I wouldn’t go that extra mile,”  Rich said adding: “Right now I am ashamed to even bring beer into the fridge again.” “I knew u were  lying to us,” John said laughing mockingly. “Okay guys we can test her,” Richard agreed in resignation. “But I can assure you we will not break her.” The tests began. From entering the house with his friends with soiled shoes, to eating all relish meant for the whole day, to drinking beer at the living room and living it very messy, Richard wife never complained. She never showed a sad face. She was always glad. In her heart she always sang the song “MUST JESUS BEAR THE CROSS ALONE AND ALL THE WORLD GO FREE” .This Saturday Richard came with his friends at 11:30 PM. Though his wife was asleep, he woke her up and demanded that she cook nsima for his 3 friends too. His wife never complained. She did that and when she was done she told her husband and his friends to go and eat. But Richard took the plates and threw them down shouting the food was undercooked and she had to cook again. His wife came to him graciously and kneeled down and said: “I am sorry honey. I never meant to embarrass you in the presence of your friends. I am sorry the food was under-cooked. I will prepare you another meal.”It was Andrew who started crying. Then Daniel and John joined him. They threw themselves to the floor crying, their hands raised in the air in surrender. Richard her husband also came apart uncontrollably .“I want to serve the God you serve. Take me to Him,” John said tears flowing freely down his cheeks. Andrew said the same thing and did the rest. They accepted CHRIST that day. They became born again. This story teaches us that sometimes God places us in situations deliberately so that we can win souls to HIM.

CAN A CHRISTIAN DRINK ALCOHOL?: When a European Airline was initially launched, an educated Christian gentleman was traveling in the first class section. An air hostess approached him with a complimentary drink, this was an alcoholic drink, but the man politely refused. The air hostess returned but this time brought the drink on a platter, designed to appeal and impress. However, the Christian man again politely refused, explaining he doesn't drink alcohol.The air hostess was concerned and informed the manager. The manager approached the man with another platter, now designed with flowers. He questioned, “Is there something wrong with our service? Please enjoy the drink, it is a complimentary offer.” The man replied, “I am a Christian and I do not drink alcohol? The manager still insisted that the man take the drink. Then, the Christian proposed that the manager should give the drink to the pilot first. The manager stated, “How can the pilot drink alcohol, he’s on duty! And if he drinks there are all chances for the plane to crash”. The Christian passenger with tears in his eyes, replied, “I am a Christian and I am ALWAYS on duty in order to protect my FAITH and if I Drink Alcohol I will crash my whole life here and hereafter. I AM 100% ON DUTY!" Maybe yours might not be an alcohol, it may be tempting you for *sex* as it was done toJoseph*, battling with how to control your *anger*, profane and vain *babblings*, your *dressing* , your *attitude* towards people and finally not sharing the Word. Do you know that souls are dying because of those reckless behaviours of ours?WE ARE 100% ON DUTY: Let's Share This Post and be a blessing to someone.. Beloved we are on duty any time any where , He that keepeth the commandment keepeth his own soul;  but he that despiseth his ways shall die. Proverb-19:16 , I have been shown also that the wife has let her sympathies and interest and affection go out to other men, … . She makes these her confidants, shows a preference for their society, relates to them her troubles and perhaps her private family matters.    This is all wrong. Satan is at the bottom of it; and unless you are alarmed and stop just where you are, he will lead you to ruin. If you have tender, loving words and kindly attentions to bestow, let them be given to him whom you have promised before God and angels to love, respect, and honor while you both shall live. Oh, how many lives are made bitter by the breaking down of the walls which enclose the privacies of every family and which are calculated to preserve its purity and sanctity! Lock within your own hearts the knowledge of each other's faults. Tell your troubles alone to God. He can give you right counsel and sure consolation, which will be pure, having no bitterness in it. When a woman relates her family troubles or complains of her husband to another man, she violates her marriage vows; she dishonors her husband and breaks down the wall erected to preserve the sanctity of the marriage relation; she throws wide open the door and invites Satan to enter with his insidious temptations. This is just as Satan would have it. If a woman comes to a Christian brother with a tale of her woes, her disappointments and trials, he should ever advise her, if she must confide her troubles to someone, to select sisters for her confidants, and then there will be no appearance of evil, whereby the cause of God may suffer reproach. How to Be Kept From Straying.-- If our people draw close to Jesus and seek to adorn your profession by a well-ordered life and godly conversation, your feet will be kept from straying into forbidden paths. If you will only watch, continually watch unto prayer, if you will do everything as if you were in the immediate presence of God, you will be saved from yielding to temptation and may hope to be kept pure, spotless, and undefiled. If you hold the beginning of your confidence firm unto the end, your ways will be established in God; and what grace has begun, glory will crown in the kingdom of our God. The fruits of the Spirit are love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance; against such there is no law. If Christ be within us, we shall crucify the flesh with the affections and lusts.ELEVATION: He raiseth up the poor out of the dust, and lifteth the needy out of the dunghill; That he may set him with princes…Psalm 113:7, 8 In Isaac's day, everyone was trying to travel to Egypt. But the Lord appeared to Isaac and told him not to leave (Genesis 26:1-4). The Lord blessed Isaac when he stayed in the land of famine. In spite of the economic situation, Isaac was able to prosper. He had a hundred per cent profit during that particular period. God can make you very great! I see God taking you forward in spite of your circumstances! No famine can keep you down anymore! No matter who is in government, you are going to make it! There may be a global economic crisis, but God will prosper you! Isaac begun to have political problems with the community. Is it not interesting that after a person works hard to build something, someone else claims the rewards? Some people always want to reap what they have not sown! Isaac's well was taken from him on two different occasions. He lawfully built a well, but lazy and ungrateful people contended with him over it. Laziness and ingratitude are vices that cause a gloomy cloud of despondency and retrogression to settle. They lead to recurring curses of poverty. Isaac continued building, in spite of having been cheated. God's prosperity for your life will happen despite what people do and say. No matter your background, family or education, God can lift you up. God is a specialist at taking you out of the dust and placing you among princes. No circumstance is too difficult for the Lord. Start your day with a blessing!!
