Dear friends, I have been sick and pain and suffering for more than a year now. During that time I’ve prayed often and I’ve asked Jesus to heal me because He is the Great Physician, by His stripes we are healed. Eventually I ended up going to hospital. (I have cancer)
During this time of suffering I have learned much from Jesus because we learn through what we suffer. Even Jesus Christ Himself, although He was a Son, He learned obedience through what He suffered, and if we follow Jesus we will also learn through what we suffer. We have to present our bodies as a sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto the Lord. Those of us who follow Jesus belong to Him, body, soul, and spirit, and whatever happens to us, whatever path He takes us, Jesus goes ahead of us, and we have to follow Him wherever He guides us, wherever He takes us, whatever path He takes us along, so that He can use us for His glory.
Jesus has a plan and a purpose with each and every one of us and the only way that He can use us, is if we yield to Him and if we present ourselves to Him. This infirmity is from the Lord, and I accept everything from Him. I’ve accepted many good things and I accept this situation as well and I pray that it will be to His glory.
I thank Jesus that I know Him, that I know His voice that He speaks to me and I live in communion with Him and that He teaches me and guides me, and that I can present myself to Him to be useful for His kingdom. Jesus said that we must bear fruit for His kingdom, and if we do not bear fruit we will get cut off and burned, we will end up in hell. We have to bear fruit for the kingdom of God or else we are useless. We must allow Jesus Christ to use us in the way that He sees fit. We must submit ourselves to Him and let Him be glorified through and in us. I thank God for this situation, and I pray that I would have the opportunity, if the Lord so will, to share much more of what He teaches me to others because, to know Jesus is glorious, to know Jesus is heaven. We are here to serve the kingdom of heaven, we are not here for ourselves. We’re not here to enrich ourselves, we are not here to build this world, we are here to build the kingdom of God, and I pray that Jesus find me useful and I might endure until the end remain in Him and do what His purposes is for me and I stay in His plan.
Dear friends, there’s only one way to be pleasing to Jesus and that is to stay with Him endure with Him through all circumstances, to serve Him, to glorify Him, until the very end. I appeal to you to seek Jesus with all your heart, to get to know Him before it is too late. because many people do not know Jesus. They assume and believe that they are saved but they do not know the Master. Seek Him while He may be found. Follow Him and serve Him, become part of His kingdom and you will have an inheritance in heaven. There is only one way and that is Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory and the honor and the praises for all eternity.
May Jesus bless you.
