Heb. 13:22: And I beseech you,
brethren, suffer the word of
*exhortation: for I have written a
letter unto you in few words.

Exhortation,
def. 1. A communication intended
to urge or persuade the recipients
to take some action. 2.an earnest
attempt at persuasion.

There are many members on this
site that may feel inadequate,
overwhelmed and possibly 'inferior'
when they view some of the posts
or replies. Some they feel are just
'monstrous' compared to what they
would like to say.

Well, stop feeling like this! You are
part of the magnificient plan of
Almighty God! Eph. 1:9

He wants and longs for you to be
used in His Body! Even on this
Christian web site!

My brothers and sisters who stay
silent, view posts and never
contribute, I challenge and exhort
you in Jesus to do so!

You are God's 'masterpiece' that
needs to be heard!

Eph:2:10: For we are his workmanship,
created in Christ Jesus unto good works,
which God hath before ordained that we
should walk in them.

We are 'all' equal at foot of Christ's
cross! Acts 10:34.

We are 'all' important to God no matter
what we might think we are compared
to others!

1Co:12:22: Nay, much more those
members of the body, which seem
to be more feeble, are necessary:


1Co:12:23: And those members of
the body, which we think to be less
honourable, upon these we bestow
more abundant honour; and our
uncomely parts have more abundant
comeliness.

1Co:12:24: For our comely parts have
no need: but God hath tempered the
body together, having given more
abundant honour to that part which
lacked:

1Co:12:25: That there should be no
schism in the body; but that the
members should have the same care
one for another.

You might feel small like the smallest
of seeds, the mustard seed, in
God's garden.

But you are 'growing' in 'Him'!

Matt:13:32: Which indeed is the least
of all seeds: but when it is grown, it is
the greatest among herbs, and
becometh a tree, so that the birds of
the air come and lodge in the branches
thereof.

You 'silent' ones are like an ornate
coffee cup made of expensive bone
China. Beautiful, pastel painted,
detailed flowers and leaves adorning
it's outside.

But the cup is 'put' away and hidden in
a closet or cupboard from eyes that
cannot behold it's beauty!

It is not serving the use of what it was
intended for! Matt. 5:13.

No one will be able to 'drink' from the
mouth of this vessel! You are a vessel
unto honor made by the Hand of God!
Rom.9:21.

Brethren, you might have the 'Word'
someone is desperate for, praying,
fasting and seeking the Lord about!

A word of 'comfort' that God has put
on your heart to minister to someone
that is hurting so bad! An experience
that you have had in God whereby
others can be stregnthened and
encouraged. 2Cor.1:4.

Don't let that 'blessing' be passed on
to another!

I as others on this site are waiting for
'our' cups to be 'filled' with the
refreshing water of God's Word that
you 'need' to impart to us! Eph.5:26.

And we need to eat 'meat' that some
of you have been given from the
Lord's table! Heb.5:12-14.

Come and bring the Word of the Lord
and share the 'fresh' manna!

May the Holy Spirit minister to those that
need this Word of the Lord!

Acts 20:27: For I have not shunned to
declare unto you all the counsel of God.

God Bless!

Your brother in Christ,
Joe
 
What a wonderful message, Setfree! It makes me want to post more, without fear of being inferior. It's so wonderful that we have such a God, that values even the most timid people, and those who feel unimportant.

You Matter Too!

Thank you brethren for the kind
words of support!

My prayer is that 'they' will 'all'
respond to the message and
become a 'poured' out vessel
of God's Love!

God Bless!

Your brother in Christ,
Joe

Set Free, this was really needed, God Bless You. Did the Lord tell you to post this message, 'cuz I suspect alot of people may feel this way.
I frequently feel inadequate here, and I know that is not right. I still post, but it is hard to do sometimes because of a little fear or shyness. But some topics are just waaaaaaaaay over my head. my brain hurts

Thanks again
:love: Calluna

God Bless you my beloved sister!

Did the Lord tell me to me to post
this message?

Yes indeed! The Holy Spirit
started to 'birth' this message
in me the other day while
I was 'shaving'! :omg:

And then it got 'real' strong when
I noticed the same people,
God bless them, were posting and
replying but hardly any others!

With such a staggering number
of members on Talk Jesus it didn't
make any sense to me!

Everything I post or reply to is
prayed, over, 'fasted' over and
sometimes even 'cried' over
before I submit!!

1Peter 4:11: If any man speak,
let him speak as the oracles of
God; if any man minister,let him
do it as of the ability which God
giveth: that God in all things may
be glorified through Jesus Christ,
to whom be praise and dominion
for ever and ever.
Amen.

Thank you Calluna for your honesty
and candor.

God Bless,

Joe
 
"Be ye perfect even as your Heavenly Father is perfect." (Mt 5:48)
So many people look at this Scripture and similar quotes and then they look at what they write on this message board and say to themselves "I'm not good enough! I'm doomed to fail."

I remember a story that Billy Graham tells on himself: One day, when he was young and brand-new in the ministry, doing one of his very first meetings, he was walking down the main street of this very small town. He stopped one of the locals and asked directions to the post office. The local fellow gave him the directions and then said, "You're new here, aren't you?" Billy said, "Yes, I am." The fellow asked him what he had come to town for. Billy said, "I'm a preacher. I'm here to show people the way of salvation." "How you gonna do that?" the local fellow asked, "You can't even find the post office!"
When he made us, God factored in allowances for our imperfections. He does not expect us to do anything flawlessly. The word "perfect" as it appears in Scripture usually means "mature, focused". It almost never means "flawless".

We learn to do by doing; we learn to compose messages for this site by composing messages for this site. It takes practice and a willingness to learn. I love what I heard motivational speaker Zig Ziglar say: "Anything that is worth doing is worth doing badly until you get it right."
