Obedience with Expedience!

"Grace to you and peace from God our Father the Lord Jesus Christ." Gal 1:3a What an awesome group of ladies to work with during our trip to Kibera, Kenya. We worked at Project Biashara (A ministry where woman there make jewelry and you can purchase Project Biashara online - http://projectbiashara.com/ Please visit the website - to help a woman is to help her family.) I have learned so much from being a part of this Great Ministry! As in Matthew 9:11-13, "The Pharisees asked, "Why is your teacher Jesus eating with the tax collectors and sinners?" But when Jesus heard this, He said, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick. But go and learn what this means = "Desire Compassion and not sacrifice." Our team traveled across the world because God placed a desire in our hearts for compassion for the lost and for the ones in need. In John 2 it is the account of Jesus at the wedding in Cana of Galilee. Remember, at the wedding .... the servants told Jesus there was "no wine" so He replied, "to fill the six water pots that were each 20 to 30 gallons, fill them with water. So, "the servants filled them to the brim." I Love this part because the servants did not fill the water pots 1/2 way, nor did they fill them 3/4 of the way to the top. They did not even fill them almost to the top ... They were Obedient with Expedience and filled to the brim! Being obedient with expedience is a choice! My prayer daily is to be obedient to God's instructions and I pray for my family and friends that they too will be obedient to God's calling. In Romans 16:19-20, it states = "For the report of your Obedience (traveling all the way across the world)has reached all: Therefore I am REJOICING OVER YOU! What a great group of ladies!!!
In Conclusion lets read Matthew 16:24- Jesus said to His disciples, "If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself and "take up his cross and follow Me." Thank you Jesus for allowing this great group of ladies to travel together across the world to be a living proof, of a loving God to a watching world. Amen.
