Tough times

18 07 2012

Thank God for the tough spots He put you in. That is where He is getting His love through you to the unlovely, and to people who harm you.  That is how Jesus lived on earth, expressing the love of God to those who criticized and hated Him; and that is how Jesus now lives in us, expressing the same love through us.  He has put us among difficult people, so that His supernatural love may be seen by them.  So praise the Lord for every tough spot you are in.  It is not God’s will to deliver us from tough spots, but in them.  There is no other way of getting at those who do not know Him except by those who do living among them.
