2019Q3 – Lesson 12 - To Love Mercy - The Burnt Out of the Christian

To Love Mercy

The Burnt Out of the Christian - Are you ministry fatigued?

In Matthew 6:25-33 Christ tells us that God looks after all His creation. The passage even speaks about the birds and the flowers which are looked after by Him. The passage concludes that those who worry are the wicked, but His followers are not to worry about tomorrow nor our physical needs for God has them all covered. Then God says, but seek ye kingdom of God and His righteousness and all those physical needs will be met by the sufferer.

So, there are two things here... if we are not to worry about our physical needs (being hungry, needing clothing, shelter, etc) because Hid covers such needs... Why do we then worry about doing this stuff ourselves. Why should we be meeting the needs of others..? That’s God’s job!?!?… We shouldn't do anything, should we?...

Join this episode as we unpack this ideas, and more… and learn about the Sparks Seventh Day Adventist Church's ministry

REMEMBER: If you feel hopeless, helpless, and carry some guilt and shame, it is highly advisable for you to contact a mental health help line in your country of residence. Or better still, go to see your primary health care provider like a GP and share with them how you feel. If you feel so distressed before, during, or after this program call your local emergency line. Do you know how to call your emergency service like an ambulance in your local country, city, or town? For example, in Australia this is triple zero ('000') and in America is nine 911. And remember, God loves you, and so do we!
