" GRATITUDE OR ATTITUDE ?"

*** Water 4 Winors ***
“There was no water for the people to drink at that place, so they rebelled against Moses and Aaron.The people blamed Moses and said, “If only we had died in the LORD’s presence with our brothers! Why have you brought the congregation of the LORD’s people into this wilderness to die, along with all our livestock?” Numbers 20:2-4)  
I love sunday school, and the messages i re-learn from God’s word. This one is now different about the Israelites that God rescued from Egypt. They were set to get the promise land until they lost their trust in God. So God decided to have them wander for 40yrs, until that generation died off. READ NUMBERS 14).

Skipping ahead.....Here we are with the next generation of those Israelites, and here they have come full circle, back where they started from 40 yrs ago.  Also complaining...no water...they don’t like the food, and showing their lack of trust for God.  While  all this time they were getting the manna from heaven, and there physical needs were met.Let's not forget that God rescued them from the hand of Pharaoh, and from his rule of them in slavery. Instead of thankfulness for freedom, they think they were better off dying with the last generation.  Spoiled?... ask yourself today when you read this story..are we somewhat like them? Are we spoiled ?? Could it be worse in our lives?
in the process of this thinking ask yourselves this Christians-- Are we setting a good example for the lost around us?, remember they are watching are every move whether you think so or not. Maybe your now thinking--I can't be perfect, they see my flaws, i won't be effective.....So how can we be a good witness, and show our King our gratitude ?
JESUS IS NOT LQQKING FOR GOOD-LEE-NESS, BUT GODLINESS.

So how can we be a good witness, and show our King our gratitude ?

(1) Pray for the Mission the Messiah has for you. Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to GodPhilippians 4:6
(2) Deliver that Mission: Spread the news that Jesus saves: For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day John 6:40
(3) Draw all your needed energy for the mission from the Messiah: but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint. Isaiah 40:31


Instead of complaining...lets compliment...God....let him know that you are so thankful that it's not worse.  Take what he has given you, and multiply it. Read the Parable of the 3 servants (Matthew 25:14-28) . Lets be greatful for our 5 talents...2 talents or even our little 1 talent.  Jesus told us what we do well with the little he gives us, how much more in heaven he will put us in charge of?? ask your selves..
 
JESUS IS LQQKING FOR OUR GREATFULNESS & SERVICE.
TAKE A LQQK= ARE YOU FULL OF GRATITUDE OR ATTITUDE ?
If you dont know Jesus...He wants to know you...give up the attitude of this world, and you will get the gratitude of thee King..everlasting life in him home--heaven..click on the “steps 2b saved” tab above...then watch the gospel video to the right.... please email me anytime @ battle4souls@gmail.com  i would like to pray for you..help you find a church home...answer a question.  If your in phoenix area..stop by or watch Calvary Community Church. online we would love to see you.
