The Door Is Open Come In!!!
Our Apostle Pail said in, ( 2 Timothy 4:7 ) I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
As We look at the above Scripture, We must understand that this is being written to a young pastor by the name of Timothy. The writer Apostle Paul realized all that would face a young upcoming Minister of the good news. The challenges from the so called Believers and the non Believers, the challenges from life itself. Apostle Paul knew that in order for Timothy to end the race in which he was call to run he must hold on to his faith in God. That no matter how long the race seemed, no matter how hard the race could be, no matter how unfair the race may seem. Timothy was being instructed through these letters to him to maintain his control and stay in the race. To "FIGHT" the good fight of FAITH.
( 1 Corinthians 9:24-25 (NKJV )
(24) Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but ONE receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it.( 25) And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but We for an imperishable Crown in Christ Jesus
Many of our brothers and sister have fallen out of the race and are sitting on the side lines, but nevertheless they are still our brothers and sisters. It is for us to encourage them to get back into the race. We are to love them, We are to pray for them, We are to be there for them. Remember God our Father has never given up on you or I, so don't you give up on them they are apart of us in the household of faith
This is the season for restoration for many who have sit down, who have gotten out of the race "Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are Spiritual restore such a ONE in the Spirit of love, gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear ONE another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.( Galatians 6:1-2)"
Look around you and see who is missing from the race and go to that person and extend a loving hand. Remember The Words of our Lord Jesus Christ ( Matthew 12:11-13 ) And He said to them, `What man shall be of you, who shall have ONE sheep will you not leave the 99 and go find the ONE that lost?, And if this may fall on the Sabbaths into a ditch, will not lay hold on it and raise it? How much better, therefore, is a man than a sheep? --so that it is lawful on the Sabbaths to do good.' Then said Christ to the man, `Stretch forth your hand,' and he stretched it forth, and it was restored whole as the other.
