You sound like a broken record? Has any one ever told you that? In the parable of the woman who broke the alabaser jar and annoited Jesus feet and washed them with her tears. The Pharasee broke a few napkins to give Jesus a meal. Judas recieved something for Jesus, 30 pieces of silver. Peter fought for Jesus and cut off the high priest's servant's ear. It seems that Jesus is a transaction. We recieve or we give or maybe we fight. Do I give or recieve because of Jesus or do I haggle and argue? Am I overjoyed and glad? Or do I glory for what Jesus gives me? Is Jesus a platform for speeches and debates and disputes and confrotations? What does Jesus mean to me? Have I broken a precious thing for Jesus? What could that be? How much do I think about Jesus? How much of myself belongs to Jesus? When I examine myself, it is not for glory, but to remedy what is lacking. That's why I wrote this blog to ask myself these questions. If I answer these questions, then I know that I'm effective for Jesus. Questions shed more answers and the answers themselves. Examine yourself, myself, if I'm in the faith? May you be blessed. Amen.
