I have been dealing with a lot of temptations lately, and have been yearning for the Lord's manifest presence in me and in the earth. I want to be fruitful, but am continually brought back to my own uselessness. Anyway, I think, AGAIN I think the Lord said, stop striving. It's all been condensed down in to these two commandments: Love God completely, and love your neighbor as self. I ask Him, "How?" I think He says, "Just do it. Don't worry about 'how.'" I trust, I hope, I try to remind others when I can. I don't know how to be a pioneer when I'm not a pioneer. Loving/serving one another is the antidote to falling back into sin.
The only way to say out of sin:
For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole Law is fulfilled in one word, in the statement, “YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF.” ... But I say, walk by the Spirit, and you will not carry out the desire of the flesh.
I think the best way to 'love your neighbor' is to continually direct the gaze of their eyes back to Jesus.
But, I frequently seem paralyzed from doing much because the feeling that there is so little time. How great a building can be made in only 2 days? If any Christ-worshipers find this, it must have been by His leading. Please tell me what you think.
