Be Of One Mind And Live In Peace,


That is how Paul is admonishing the Corinthians who
were steering away from His teachings. Mostly it was
doubt; doubt that Jesus was actually God and doubt
that Jesus could do what Paul said he could do. So
while he admonishes them, in the end he builds them
up because while they made mistakes, Paul did not
want to lose them as believers but encourages them to
get on the right path and renew their faith in Christ so
that those doubts would cease. We are not the masters
of all things that happen. We seem to always have the
urge to think we know better than God. Actually we are
to trust Him even when we don't understand Him. It is
not our will but His will that is to be done. So when we
don't understand something, instead of blaming God, we
should take a closer look within. We might rather say,
Lord I don't know why You do some things you do but I
will follow where you lead. It's all about surrender.

You have said a lot in few words. Our Father takes such good care of us all. All glory to Him now and forever, amen. God bless you for this timely message.
