I always smile when I read a post by my atheist friends which begins with “Read and Receive Sense” or its cocky equivalent.
Those better educated people don’t realize they are the butt of their own jokes.
That’s the irony.
That’s why I would never bother arguing with an atheist.
Because they deal with sense. I deal with faith.
Does it even make sense to you? they would ask.
Because it is not supposed to make sense. It is supposed to make faith.
For the just shall live by faith.
The justified by Jesus live by faith.
The world says seeing is believing.
The bible says “only believe and you will see the glory of God”
The world says if you have no money, you are broke.
The word says, Let no man glory in men for all things are yours.
(All things are yours so give God thanks)
Jesus looked at ten lepers, and said ‘Go show yourselves to the priests’
It didn’t make sense. You only Go to the priests when you are cleansed. Not before.
But God calls those things which are not as though they are. Because God is a faith God.
Jesus said to Thomas, because you have seen me you have believed.
Translation: Because I came down to your sense level, you are forming faith. This is not faith.
If you wait to see everything sorted out before you declare, ‘All things are working out together for my good, ‘ Jesus is saying, Because you don chop belleful you dey form God is my provider abi?
Atheists mock: The Lord is not my shepherd, sheep are dumb, I am not dumb, I am not a sheep.
Because they don’t understand the key word is not sheep but SHEPHERD.
There will always be times when we just cannot form ironman, lone ranger, big bad wolf. We will be looking for that person who knows better than us. That person we can trust with our lives. That person we can sag our weary bodies against.
Even common sense would tell you we all need shepherds.
We are all sheep whether some people want to form sabi pass or not. We know nothing. We only try to theorize things to make ourselves feel better. Safer.
The lord is my Shepherd and i don’t give a fuck what anyone else says about it.
I think that’s why christians suffer depression. Because they wander away. Because they switch off from their source of faith. Of strength. Jesus said, Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy ladden and I will give you rest.
Why are you depressed instead of rested? Because you are not looking unto Jesus, you are looking unto man. And woman. And papa and mama and James and John and Daddy G. O.
Jesus said, Peace I leave with you, my peace i give unto you. Not as the world gives do I give unto you.
Jesus acknowledged the world will give peace. Then he goes, but the peace i give you is not the same as world peace.
World peace is when everything is falling into place. When you are at a beautiful beach, no stress, drinking fine wine.
The Jesus peace that passes understanding is when things are not working out yet, but you are still radiant and smiling. Only Jesus can give you that.
It doesn’t make sense. Because it is not supposed to. It makes faith.
Dear Christian, if you mind those ‘common sense’ practitioners, you are on your own.
God will not always make sense.
God doesn’t always make sense.
God doesn’t have to make sense to you if you believe.
When you start applying sense to the things of the spirit, you start walking in carnality, in your own wisdom, in your own natural abilities. You start backsliding.
Backsliding doesn’t necessarily come because of sin. But unbelief.
So, dear Christian, be bold in your ‘foolishness’
Let them craft fine grammar. Let them call you names. Let them insult your generation.
The bible says, be not deceived, God is not mocked.
Nor can His children.
Nor should they.
