Question? I know a christian that is always looking for the Perfect Circumstances and when things go not accordingly then they broadcast it on Facebook, What is your opinion sir?
WITHOUT KNOWING the whole situation I can ONLY GIVE my opinion…
First of all EVERY CHRISTIAN has to know that rarely the SO CALLED “Perfect Cirumstances” ever happens, And if this is what any christian expects then they are going to be GREATLY DISSAPOINTED.
I want to POINT OUT a few reasons for my above statement…
– In the Perfect Circumstances the christian WOULD NEVER learn to Trust In the Lord as he would wants us to for there would be NO NEED.
The Bible states…
Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.
Psalms 37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass.
– The Lord wants us to BE EXAMPLES where the unsaved are at, if the christian continuously runs from the circumstances that are less then so called “PERFECT” then the christian WILL NEVER amount to anything for the Lord because they are always running out on the Lord.
Consider what the Apostle Paul DECLARED by inspiration…
Acts 4:29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word.
1 Corinthians 9:19-22 For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. (20) And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; (21) To them that are without law, as without law, (being not without law to God, but under the law to Christ,) that I might gain them that are without law. (22) To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak: I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.
– Again let me draw your attention to the Apostle Paul, He himself went to the lord in prayer 3 times about a need that he wanted the Lord to take care of and the Lord considered that IT WASN’T in the best interest of Paul to be healed and this principle CAN BE APPLIED to any circumstance that the christian may face.
2 Corinthians 12:6-10 For though I would desire to glory, I shall not be a fool; for I will say the truth: but now I forbear, lest any man should think of me above that which he seeth me to be, or that he heareth of me. (7) And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure. (8) For this thing I besought the Lord thrice, that it might depart from me. (9) And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. (10) Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.
If the christian CANNOT stand strong where he or she is at then it is VERY DOUBTFUL then that christian will be of ANY USE as far as being a testimony and a witness ANY WHERE as far as the Lord is concerned because they are always running out on the Lord.
As scripture states…
1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins. The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.
-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8
-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24
-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9
“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
IT IS THAT SIMPLE – THE GOSPEL TRUTH
