Mark 16:16 – A Personal Journey

Trust and Obey…

Trust and Obey…

Walking with Jesus.
We think of it as the big things, the spiritual things, the religious things.

It’s the the little things, the mundane things, one small obedience that seems at the time trivial.

Knowing, somehow, that it was time Wednesday to undertake a long delayed task.
Having clear direction yesterday evening that it was time, at that moment, to finish the task.
Knowing (and it has taken years for Jesus to teach me this) that it was my Father’s will.
Right now.
This minute.

Of course, as these things usually do, it got tangled up, it went wrong, it was frustrating…

And then an hour on the phone with a customer service representative halfway around the world, ministering Jesus to someone in need of encouragement.

It’s the little things.

Muzzle Not the Ox

The Un-Muzzled Ox

Who serves as a soldier at his own expense? Who plants a vineyard and does not eat of its fruit? Who tends a flock and does not drink of its milk?  Do I say this from a human perspective? Doesn’t the Law say the same thing?  For it is written in the Law of Moses: “Do not muzzle an ox while it is treading out the grain.” Is it about oxen that God is concerned?  Isn’t He actually speaking on our behalf? Indeed, this was written for us, because when the plowman plows and the thresher threshes, they should also expect to share in the harvest.  If we have sown spiritual seed among you, is it too much for us to reap a material harvest from you?

— 1st Corinthians 9:7-11

   He who sows bountifully will reap also bountifully.

  Not out of compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
