WFW: Matthew 7: 24-26


Matthew 7: 24-26, Jesus said,

 24 “Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. 25 The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock. 26 But everyone who hears these words of mine and does not put them into practice is like a foolish man who built his house on sand.
Reality check, we can accurately quote a verse from the Bible but sometimes we failed to live what it really meant. We have our memory verse since we studied the Bible but forgot to apply it in our lives. God's word is indeed a very powerful weapon against all the adversaries that we may encounter in our daily existence. 

For the last three Sundays, I've been ministering the nannies in our church. Sad to say, not all of them were interested to join. However, I take delight for those who have the heart to be a part of the fellowship. I can say that some of them are still neophyte when it comes to their faith and walk with God. While ministering to them, I already conditioned my mind that I cannot expect everyone to be as responsive as I have expected. I knew that the conviction on their heart should come from God. That was what I kept on emphasizing on them. I can relate to them somehow because I felt what they felt during my early years as Christian. Even up to this point, I cannot even guarantee to myself that I have really a very strong foundation with God. The fact that I easily get affected whenever I encountered some personal problems, I noticed that my doubts have almost overtaken my faith. Good thing I am surrounded with loving people whose faith have been tested by time and experience.

I learned to love the task that was given to me. At first, I was really hesitant considering that I am not close to any of them. But I believe that this thing happened for a reason because through them I learned the value of humility and patience. During our discussions, I requested them to share their life's experiences based on out topic and I was really blessed with it.  By God's grace, I can see their heart and I knew that someday, they too will have a life that is purpose driven, since I am using Rick Warren's Purpose-Driven Life as a tool in ministering to them.
