I have realized that in life generally, people walk around looking happy but deep in their hearts:
They have big problems they can not even bear.
Some shed tears until their pillows are wet at night and they look happy and strong in the day.
They wonder who; how; when; where as they walk and drive around.
Some look as though they are making it in life but deep in their hearts they know that things are not as people think.
We face heavy gigantic stones in life
These stones may be:
Most people walk around strong but they have unbearable stones they face.
2) Financial Problems
Financial problems may be a heavy burden in life.
Most people pretend to have a stable financial life
Whereas they are keeping up appearances.
3) Family Problems
Some families have great names so much that to admit they have unbearable problems becomes a disgrace.
So what do we do? We pretend that all is well.
In Mark 16:1-4, Three women are going to the TOMB where JESUS CHRIST laid.
They are going to ANOINT the body of Jesus Our King as was the Jewish Culture of the day.
But as they went to the Tomb; the Women asked each other a big Question.
And the Big Question was:
“Who will roll the stone away from the entrance of the tomb?”
Those days people were buried in hewn tombs.
And these types of tombs were sealed in the entrance by a huge stone which had a weight of 2 tons.
And remember we are talking about women here versus a 2t stone.
It was easy for the 3 women to:
- Just stay home
Everyone would under their excuse
2. To just leave it for men
This would be a wise idea.
But in Contrary, these women bought spices and off they went to the tomb.
These Women understood that they had:
A PURPOSE TO ACHIEVE:
These women were purpose driven.
Didn’t sit back because of that Heavy Stone.
Don’t even give-up because that was a heavy, huge and gigantic stone.
Live to your purpose.
Is it Cancer?
Live to your purpose.
Is it HIV or AIDS?
Don’t give up: Live to your purpose.
These 3 women were being pushed, the purpose to achieve.
Jesus once said in John 4:34:
My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me…
Nothing would deter Him because of the purpose.
2. TAKE A POSITION
All three Women made a decision in UNISON to go Forward.
Apostle Paul, once said
I press on towards the mark…
Decisions Decide Destiny!!!!
There is a heavy stone, but make a decisions to go forward in FAITH.
Keep on moving forward.
Every step you make in FAITH makes a difference.
These Women kept on progressing towards the tomb.
Never give-up; Sihamba No Jehovah Elshaddai.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!!!
3. A PRIZE
This is a reward.
There is reward for everything.
BUT WHEN THEY LOOKED UP;
THEY SAW THAT THE STONE;
WHICH WAS VERY LARGE, HAD BEEN ROLLED AWAY.
There is a Prize for a Purpose Driven Life.
God had rolled away the huge stone.
- Say YEEESSS!!!
- Say YEEESSSS!!!
God will never let us down.
He will roll that Stone Away.
He is not a man, that He would lie.
That heavy stone is Nothing to God.
- Live out to achieve your purpose.
- Have a position in life; Because DECISIONS DECIDE DESTINY!!
- There is a prize for a Purpose Driven Life.
