The Lord is not building an army of sissies, who want everything handed to them on a silver platter for free, that costs them nothing. Jesus said He will not give you more than you can handle, but He will give you all you can handle, to teach you perseverance courage and strength to stand against the enemy. He did not give us a spirit of timidity, but the spirit of power love and self discipline. Jesus is not calling us to sit back in our comfortable lives and wait for Him to come get us, He is calling us to stand up and do the hard things, to make a stand for Him, to go and gather in the lost, to set the captives free to heal the sick.
We have all got the grace message down, and I am a firm believer in grace, but there are many lost out there in America who have no clue what grace is. We are called to the streets and alleys, to deliver the amazing grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to those who don't know Him and what His blood did. Jesus said watch, be ready, make sure the master finds you doing His will when He comes back, His will is that no man Perish, but that every man come to repentance. He is calling His body to rise from its slumber, and He will shine on us as we go forth to do his will. IT IS TIME!!!
