"It's all a matter of perspective."  That phrase is oft used to help folks see a problem or task or reason from another viewpoint.  The Christian perspective is that we are here for a purpose. If we did not have a reason for being, then wouldn't the easiest and most kind thing for the Lord to do is take us to heaven as soon as we turn our hearts over to Him?  It would certainly be easier than staying here and having to go through whatever life throws at you... but there is another viewpoint, another perspective.  Our wish is often just to get it all over with--that's the weariness of the flesh that just wants it all to stop.  And, that despair is often more than understandable, but...should we give in to it? God's wish is we be models, leaders, overcomers, and helpers of those who have little or no hope.  We have hope, an eternal hope.  The Lord want us to be the comforter and understanding companion that stands by them and works with them through the hard times to the times of rejoicing on the other side.  How do you deal with the problems, challenges and pains?  Your response depends completely upon your perspective... is it the perspective of the flesh? or is it the perspective of the Eternal? Make your choice and then walk the walk of your choice.  Remember, if we stay within His perspective, we can stand on the fact that we, as family members and therefore a child of the Eternal God, we KNOW that eventually we will be like Him and understand fully the wholeness and holiness of God Himself.  We will finally grasp God...        Access Deacon Joshua's sermon notes at  Copyright 2016  All Rights Reserved
