20 And thus I aspired to preach the gospel, not where Christ was already named, so that I would not build on another man’s foundation;
21 but as it is written,
“They who had no news of Him shall see,
And they who have not heard shall understand.”
“We know you are correct, but we would not only not sell bibles if that happens we would receive much criticism”
So much is said and shared regarding our safety and the safety of the people who may desire to receive Christ as their savior. Questions constantly arise regarding our own safety as we go to a volatile place and a harsh climate... so many fears, concerns, worries. God has spoken and clearly, to me about HIS heart on the matter :-) It is neat! It is true! I prayed about who to share this with and prayed as i went down the e-mail list. Ya'll are the ones God laid on my heart. Blessings from Him. We are so shortsighted sometimes! I pray that He would use us to help each other look the "right direction" with our HEARTS! God's definition of "safety" is totally different from ours.
We sometimes "expect" God to keep us safe. That can mean many different things. Safety to us can mean that we stay healthy.
It can mean that He keeps our families alive and free from disease. Itcould mean that He keeps us safe from enemies in this world. It can meanthat He keeps us safe from danger. That He protects us from death…that He would never send us into the midst of discomfort, danger ordeath.BUT Safety to Him means... Saved.That's it. Those that are saved are safe. Those that aren't are ingrave danger. The only kind that really matters. AND if we are safe... saved, then anything... ANYTHING could happen and we would still be
SAFE! Forever! Praise God!!!! Do not be afraid. He has promised to be with us always! AND He hasSAVED us! Wow There is truly nothing to fear. There is truly no reason to tell Hi "no". He has thought of everything... even possible "consequences" when He calls. And His view of the consequences is that His perfect will isbeing accomplished. His ways are truly, truly NOT our ways. Aren't yaglad?
