We can only be used for the Truth – Hallelujah

Praise Jesus for His Holy Love!

Yes [2 Cor 13:8] if we belong to God we can only be used for the truth and not against it, and God in His goodness redeemed the actions of Joseph’s brothers in order to save many lives [Genesis 50:20], but let us work out our salvation with fear and trembling [Phil 2:12] and not be foolish [Romans 3:5-8, Romans 6:1, Romans 9:19,20]. I also cannot see how Joseph’s brothers could be the heroes of that story.

By God’s grace may we strive to practice and teach the fullness of the counsel of God [1 Tim 4:16, Acts 20:27] and not relax His commands. Therefore we will be called great in the Kingdom [Matthew 5:19], where the least of all is the greatest [Luke 9:48]. All glory be to God through Christ Jesus, and if we have failed let us repent, for in Godly sorrow there is repentance that leads to no regret [2 Cor 7:10].

This repentance should bear fruits of repentance [Matthew 3:8, 2 Cor 13:5, 1 John 3:9]. We can rest in forgetting what was behind striving forward to the upward calling in Christ Jesus [Phil 3:13-14], knowing that God’s ways are above ours [Isaiah 55:8-9], the Savior was born eventually through the line of Judah, a line including faithful or repentant mothers including prostitutes, gentiles and women who had committed incest [Matthew 1], and not Joseph, though a man by the name of Joseph was still chosen for his adoptive father.

Let us trust in Him who will keep us in perfect peace if our mind is fixed on Him [Isa 26:3], in whom are all treasures of wisdom and truth [Colos 2:3] and nothing good is lacking [Psalm 34:9-10], by the work of the resurrected only begotten Son of God [1 Cor 15:3-4, John 3:16], the lamb who alone is the way to the Heavenly Father [John 14:6], who is humble and gentle and heart, whose yoke is easy and burden is light [Matthew 11:28-30] and who turns none who come to Him away [John 6:37], let us come to the throne of grace to find mercy and grace for timely help [Hebrews 4:16]. Praised be God who deserves all the glory [1 Tim 1:17] in Jesus Holy name.
