Got Milk !
J.F.K said ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for the country.
Jesus is saying ask not what I can do for you, because I have already done it.
Joy, peace, good health,
Great friends, healthy relationships, money, fine.
I have already given it to you. I know we sing the song, if God does not do anything else for me he has done enough, well – true but at the risk of sounding ungrateful,
I do want more, I didn’t say I needed more, but I want more, as a matter of fact I already have more, I just don’t know how to get it.
You see if anyone ever inheritance you can’t get it until they die, but you can’t get it into your old enough and then you will get it at the designated time that the person said you can get it God said in Romans 8:17 we are joint heirs with Christ.
The terms heirs of God but that is our relationship to God the father, as his children, we have an
Inheritance that can never perish, spoil or fade. That’s enough to stop the sermon and show joint heirs with Christ? So whatever God gave one son he’ll give it to all of you.
You told Jesus, son I am well pleased with you, you were faithful over a few things I will make you ruler over many, come back home to glory and sit next to me, rest my son, you have done enough.
What did Jesus do?
And why has he done enough?
Why is he not doing anything else?
On the cross Jesus said it was finished.
He said in Luke 4:18 the Spirit of the Lord is upon me for he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor, he has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind man will see, that the oppressed will be set free.
It’s already done, so what do you need the Lord to do for you?
Healing, prosperity, peace.
The truth is, you don’t need the Lord to do anything for you.
He has done enough his part you already got it.
Let me give you another example.
A man brought a ticket to go on a cruise, he pack all the food he could carry with him, he stayed in the room and just watch TV.
Did he not go to the game room, did he not go to the ball, do you not go to the pool, when the trip was over, he asked the people how much more it will cost for all that other fun stuff and how much did it cost for the meals that include a steak and lobster, you know surf and turf.
They said it all cost $100 the man said I paid $100 well you could have had the same thing if you were a child of God, no sense in getting upset with your brother or sister the same guy that died for them, died for you, God is no respect of a person. But he is a respecter of faithfulness.
2 Peter 1:3
According as his divine power has given unto us all things that Pertain unto life and godliness through the knowledge of him that have called us to glory and virtue.
To God Be The Glory
