QUOTES ON TOP

You see, we are all called to run a race for Jesus, and repentance is the starting line of that race. It’s futile to try to run the race if you never made it to the starting line to begin with! This is the problem with many believers today. They are trying to follow the Lord, but they have never truly repented and surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ. The result of the false gospel so prevalent today can be seen in churches full of half-hearted Christians whose lives are still centered on selfishness and the principles of the world. Jesus came to bring the kingdom of God to the earth. He came to completely transform individuals, families and nations from the inside out – a radical revolution that would change the world through obedient, blood-bought servants who are willing to bow their knee and say, “Lord, after all You have done for me, what would You have me do for You?” – WRITTEN BY BROTHER YUN

RELATION & RELATIONSHIPS - 8 (BEAR THE WEAKNESS OF YOUR LOVED ONES)



“We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves." - Romans 15:1

There was a young boy and girl who fell in love with each other. They loved each other so deeply though they had their own ups and downs in their life. The girl was so spiritual than the boy and she used to sing well. She conducts worship session in so many spiritual meetings in the place where she lived. 

Everyone liked the girl for her love towards God. But yet she loved that guy a lot knowing that she is doing something against God’s will. One fine day she met another boy when she went for a particular rehearsal. He was a musician who had a great love for God. 

As she got some time to be with that boy, she liked the way he plays keyboard and because of her weakness she thought that they will make a best pair. Slowly that boy begun to occupy her thoughts and so she was filled with guilt as she thought about her commitment with the first guy. 

On a particular day early morning around 2:00 A.M, she suffered a lot because of the guilt and so she thought that she will open up her weakness with the first guy. The very next day she called him and spoke to him about her own weakness of falling in love with the other guy. 

The first guy listened to her with so much politeness and told her not to worry but to pray. The girl was surprised and asked how he could accept this. He simply replied her stating, “If this happened after our marriage, will I throw you out of my life? No. I understand your weakness. So even now I won’t do that. But I will pray for you.”

That guy accepted that girl’s weakness which actually strengthened their relationship. But yet as God intervened in their life, they got separated according to His will. 

There were times in our life we find weaknesses in the lives of the people whom we love a lot. We have some expectations about them but they will fail to live up to our expectations because of their own weakness. What we do in such state? We simply blame them for their weakness and it affects our relationship with them. 

We always wanted everyone to accept us as we are with our own weakness and struggle. But yet we fail to do that. 

If you accept your loved ones as they are with their weakness and struggle, you will definitely have a peace filled wonderful relationship. Do not point out their weakness in front of others. Rather pray for them and speak to them when they are alone in a polite way. 

When you began to love your loved ones in-spite of their weakness, they will fall in love with you over and over again. You will have a blessed relationship. Be strong to accept your loved ones failures and weakness. Pray to God to strengthen them. You will have God’s peace in your life.
