Grieve not – The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

GRIEVE NOT :

That’s really a pretty silly demand,  you can hardly tell someone not to grieve the death of a loved one, or when  seeing someone who had promise, fall away into sin or rebellion. 

It hurts us in  the center of our being. It makes us sorry, sad, disappointed or grieved.

We do have the power to stop the Lord from being grieved though.

What God wants final -The Fix-it Shop-Filling Station

All through the Bible the Lord has been trying to make us realize one simple thing.  HE WANTS A PERSONAL, RELATIONSHIP with Each One Of Us.

Religion, is sometimes a problem,  look at  Paul:

” Galatians 1:13-14
King James Version (KJV)
For ye have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews’ religion, how that beyond measure I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it:

And profited in the Jews’ religion above many my equals in mine own nation, being more exceedingly zealous of the traditions of my fathers.”

Paul was Zealously serving God as a Pharisee, exterminating Deciples of our Lord.  Until the Lord struck him down, blinded to get his attention.

Zeal is what we need but it must be Godly Zeal, Phinious killed sinners, his zeal rewarded, Paul killing Saints, he needed direction.

For today we need Relationship,  James explains Religion :
James 1:25-27
King James Version (KJV)
:But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.

If any man among you seem to be religious, and bridleth not his tongue, but deceiveth his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Please quit talking about your “Religion ”  I ‘m a Baptist, I ‘m a Methodist,  Catholic, Presbyterian. …No you are not.   If you are a true follower of Christ, you must put the Word of God above your Church Doctrine.

You need to be a Desiple. Stufy to
show yourself aproved.  Present yout bodies a living Sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto God.  This is our reasonable service.

John 3:16-17
King James Version (KJV)
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.”

We don’t need programs to teach us how to share the Word.  We need the Holy Spirit to be allowed to work through us.  We cannot change people, make people love and serve the Lord.  Let the Spirit lead us to share the love of the Lord.

Father God, please help us to let Your Spirit flow.

JESUS’ FIX-IT SHOP

As a piano technition, one of the first things I had to learn was how to hear and distinguish beats. All of the keys on a piano move a hammer to strike strings to produce sound.  At the bass end, the hammers just hit one string.

As you move up the keyboard,  left to right, the hammers then hit two and for the majority of the keyboard three strings per note.

When I tune I start by tuning the C above middle C to vibrate at 523.3 cps (cycles per second). Than middle C and the C below all beatless.

Beatless is a pure sound,  not jerky or wavy.  Then we set the Temperment of the piano.  The two octaves in the middle, by listening to the different beats of 3rds, 5ths, 4ths, minor 3rds, octaves ect.

Sounds complicated dosn’t it?  There are also many adjustments,  regulations and repairs that may need to be done.

You can learn the process quite quickly but it takes years of practice to do reliable, acceptable work.

There are some pianos that can not be saved.  Sometimes people have played on and in the same keys for years, not tuning or adjusting for wear.

Suddenly,  the adjustments won’t adjust.  The instrument needs more work than it is worth, when it should of lasted years longer.

That is what dismays me….I can’t save them all.

Jesus can save us all.  If we are in His Word daily, the regular maintenance and regulations are updated as required.  We find His peace and comfort, guidance and direction are ever present.

If we don’t allow him access on a regular basis….we may find the repair we need takes longer, it may be painful, it may have to be repeated until we are running smoothly and have learned to listen.

Jesus dosn’t want us to spend years recovering from our trials and struggles.   He made new eyes out of clay, raised the dead, cleaned up lepers…..

I believe he can fix the most stubborn of us and our problems, if we just keep up the regular maintenance sessions with Him.

Ask Him to fill up your Spiritual  tank and keep on serving Him.  He healed all that were afflicted. …He will heal you too.
