Makes Christ Look Good.

SPIRITUAL STRENGTH

But I say to you, do not resist an evil person [who insults you or violates your rights]; but whoever slaps you on the right cheek, turn the other toward him also [simply ignore insignificant insults or trivial losses and do not bother to retaliate—maintain your dignity, your self-respect, your poise]. Matthew 5:39 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

To publicly slap someone on the cheek in Jesus’ day was a supreme act of insult. To do it backhanded was a double insult.

So when Jesus is telling you to turn the other cheek He is telling you that when someone insults you to not take it personally and hurl one back at them.

This makes perfect sense.

There are wolves that prowl around looking for a fight. When you ignore their insults you are refusing to take their bait and thereby avoiding a fight. As a consequence they look the fool while you look gentlemanly or lady like.

This is a good reflection of Christ.

Turning the other cheek makes Christ look good and the offender look stupid. Joseph a son of Jehovah

Prayer: Please Jehovah Chatsahi (The Lord is my Strength) bless me with the strength to turn the other cheek when slapped so as to glorify You and to prevent words coming from my moth for which I shall surely regret later. I humbly request this in the name of He who never spoke when slapped at His unfair trial Jesus Christ. Amen

May Gods sunshine always bless you with brightening your day with His love, joy and peace. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I Will Call and You Will Answer.

FROM THE HEART

Then call, and I will answer; Or let me speak, then You respond to me. Job 13:22 New King James Version

You do not need any roseraries or recited prayers to connect with Jehovah. Matter of a fact He will ignore those prayers. You do not need to pray to dead saints to get Jehovahs ears.

 

You need an honest sincere heart that longs for a loving relationship with Him, to be honest with Him.

 

But if you expect Him to answer your prayers you need to listen to what He is saying or He will ignore your prayers. What is the sense of Him answering your prayers if you ignore His advice?

We need never shout across the spaces to an absent God. He is nearer than our own soul, closer than our most secret thoughts.” A.W. Tozer                                        

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Kalel (voice of God) for always being there to listen to me when I desire an honest sinsere conversation with You. Thank you my love for Your comforting and encouraging words. Thank you my love for blessing me with You infinite wisdom to guide my life. I exalt You in the name of He who is always there to listen and answer us Jesus Christ. Amen.                                      

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