Ginger Tea

(Reflection on Life)

I wanted to share my experience in the grocery store because it reminds me of how life can be as a believer in Christ.

I was in the grocery store looking for ginger tea so I decided to ask the manager since he was nearby. He happily escorted me to the aisle and I proceeded down the aisle cautiously not to miss it and I still didn’t see it. I was beginning to notice that it doesn’t look like tea would even belong on this aisle. Did he send me down the wrong aisle? Where is it? Finally I get all the way down to the other end of the aisle and there it was on the top left.

I find this ordinary experience in the grocery store to be a reflection on life. We are going through life looking for something God told us He would give us, but when we don’t see it right away we get discouraged and think we must be going in the wrong direction. We almost turn around, but the Holy Spirit speaks to us and says, “keep going it’s right up ahead”.

(Proverbs 3:5-6) ” Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.  {6} In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”

Introduction

For those of you who don’t know about the beautiful sacrifice. The beautiful sacrifice is Jesus Christ who gave His life for us.

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. John 3:16 KJV

Now that is the most beautiful thing ever, to have a God that loves us so much.

If you would like to be saved the Bible says; That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  Ephesians 2:1 KJV, Romans 10:9 KJV

You may ask why do we need to be saved? Well because of sin we were all destined for hell, but God sent His Son to pay the price for those sins. Saving us from an eternity in hell and giving us an eternity to spend with Him. The bible makes it clear that God is holy and man is sinful and this sin separates us from Him.

(1 John 4:9-10) “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him.¬† {10} Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.”
