Entering the Fray I Corinthians 4 part 2

Following Christ can take its toll.  When you decide to jump into the fray, you can expect to be attacked.  You can assume the world is going to make fun, attack and completely fail to understand you.  In addition, you can be sure the enemy will do everything to make you ineffective and useless to God.  That combination rarely equals a great time of fun.  If we are willing to face the adversity that accompanies our desire to please God—then we will see God do amazing things for and through us.  As we are journeying, however, it will always be a journey fraught with adversity and adventure.  That is why we must rely on God to carry us through.

Seek first his Kingdom.  Rely upon his strength, wisdom and provision to carry you daily.  Then, he will allow you to experience him in a way the world could only long for.

Thanks God for your provision and strength.

God Bless You

10 Our dedication to Christ makes us look like fools, but you claim to be so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are so powerful! You are honored, but we are ridiculed. 11 Even now we go hungry and thirsty, and we don’t have enough clothes to keep warm. We are often beaten and have no home. 12 We work wearily with our own hands to earn our living. We bless those who curse us. We are patient with those who abuse us. 13 We appeal gently when evil things are said about us. Yet we are treated like the world’s garbage, like everybody’s trash—right up to the present moment.

14 I am not writing these things to shame you, but to warn you as my beloved children. 15 For even if you had ten thousand others to teach you about Christ, you have only one spiritual father. For I became your father in Christ Jesus when I preached the Good News to you. 16 So I urge you to imitate me.

17 That’s why I have sent Timothy, my beloved and faithful child in the Lord. He will remind you of how I follow Christ Jesus, just as I teach in all the churches wherever I go.


This is an amazing Journey. I hope you will hear from the Lord, as you seek Him with your heart. Matthew 6:33
