We talked about why Jesus told the parable...what He intended to teach us. Someone asked, "How do we know who God wants us to help...and for how long?"
A voice from the back of the room said, "Whether it is looking to find the full meaning in a scripture or desiring wisdom as to who God would have us minister to, the answer is relationship. The closer we are to Christ, the better our vision is. His Spirit gives us eyes to see the truth and to see the needs around us."
I believe we all knew that, but that phrase..."the closer we are to Christ, the better our vision is" really got everyone's attention. That was a good thought to hold onto as we headed into corporate worship.
This is for each of you...
"I do not cease to give thanks for you, remembering you in my
prayers, that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of Glory
may give you a spirit of wisdom and
of revelation in the knowledge of Him."
