The gifts that are on people lives and why to treat everyone with honor and respect.
Most people have a hard time seeing something in someone that they know all to well. What do I mean about that? Is when you know someone for a number of years, its because hard to see them outside of what you think. Here is an example, Jesus came back to His home town, even tho they felt something on Him, they just couldn’t look past of who He was. They didn’t show Him no honor nor any respect. So He’s gift of salvation just didn’t work for His home town. You have to first believe in something to have it work. Faith is believing in the unknown but know that something will happen. You can have faith tainted by doubt. Or just enough faith to get you through grace. Either way Jesus knows our hearts and wants us to trust Him.
Assuredly, I say to you, no prophet is accepted in his own country. Luke 4:24
Now let talk about other members in church. I see so many pastors not reaping from their church just because he doesn’t believe in the people that attend. Gifts are abundant but the use for them are few. I have a gift, the ones that reap from it are the ones that have faith in it. They don’t have faith in me but they have faith in the God in me. I know it can be difficult to look past someone mistakes. You have nothing to lose when you love, respect, honor your brothers and sisters, with the gift that is on their life. If they don’t return the same respect, just don’t get hurt and let God handle it. There is so much that we can do anyway. If you view Jesus as Salvation, then you will receive a salvation reward. You see Jesus as a common man, then you receive a mans reward. The way you response towards people is what you will receive back. Some people call it karma, I call it faith. -tsuLife Author
And if one member suffers, all the members suffer with it; or if one member is honored, all the members rejoice with it. 1 Corinthians 12:26
He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward. And he who receives a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. Matthew 10:41
