A closer walk with our beloved friend.

It Makes Sense You Know

For we are to God the fragrance of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing.  To the one we are the aroma of death leading to death, and to the other the aroma of life leading to life.2 Corinthians 2:15-16 2 Corinthians 2:15-16 New King James Version

When I lived in China they would fry tofu and it smelled like fried dog poo.  It was enough to turn the stomach (especially on a hot day). I would walk past the vendor looking at them with a look of disgust and repulsiveness.

I have received that look from many who know I am a Christian.

You know why?

It is because they know they are living an ungodly life so when they see me, it convicts them of their wickedness. I have tried to talk with them and was met with venom coming out of their mouths like a viper spitting its venom. Yes it hurts (especially when it is close family and those who used to be our friends) but just take it to Jesus and He will comfort you. Do not allow that to bother you when you experience it and you will. Jesus revealed to us that that would happen.

It only makes sense you know.

Just as the devil is repulsed by Christ, so too are those who reject Christ repulsed by those who walk with Him.

It is in our trials that we draw the closest to Christ. Joseph- Anthony: Green

I accept ridicule, scorn and disadvantage for Christ with joy and honour. Korean Christian Proverb.

On the same terms how do you think you smell to God?

The smell of a dead body is gross.

The smell of newborns has a pleasant aroma to it.

Prayer: Please Jesus Shalom (Jesus my peace) bless me with Your loving peace and strength when I encounter those who revile me because I am Your humble servant. Please heal the pain that comes from rejection from those with whom I was once close with but now look at me in disgust because I have chosen to be a child of our Heavenly Father. I know I can take this anguish to You because You experienced rejection from Your family and friends as well. I pray in anguish for this blessing in Your magnificent name. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah
