What A Man!

November 8, 2010

We must learn to view this life that we are leading in proper perspective. We are looking to
stand before God when it is all over and hear him say, “well done.” Those two words could be likened
to “wow, what a man.” When we hear those words it will be the compliment of compliments. It will be
the one we’ve been waiting for and hearing that will make it worth all we’ve had to go through. I say it
will be worth it all because this life is challenging mentally, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Paul
said he was beaten, left for dead, lied about, lied to, hated, imprisoned, and otherwise mistreated, but
still was able to say that he fought a good fight and finished the course. Let’s fight the good fight of faith
and finish the course.
We have all been subjected to the unfair tragedies of this life. Neither the number of injustices
nor the intensity of those injustices will determine our reward in heaven. The only thing that will matter
is how we deal with those unexpected and often undeserved situations that we may face. Keep things in
proper perspective. Determine that regardless of what happens, you will follow God. That is what He
wants. The Word says in the book of John that “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk
in the truth.”
As you continue through this life may you recognize that the things you are subjected to are
there for you to overcome. May you realize that the circumstances you face are there for God to prove
you and that He wants to bless you. Jesus said that He came that we may have life and have it more
Man_Up and be the man God wants you to be.
