To Take Charge, Take Responsibility

Words In Season:

When you blame a man for where you are, you transfer the power to change from where you are to the man.
              Abridged & Adopted

Bearing:

"It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth."
  Lamentations 3:27

"For Everyman shall bear his own burden"
 Galatians 6:5.

Bottomline:

Adam shifted the blame to Eve, and Eve in turn shifted the blame to the serphent. And ever since, the blame game had continued. Exclusively played by men who will never ever take responsibility to face the fact about their lives and the way forward.
Jesus said if any man want to follow Him, let him deny himself, carry his cross and follow Him. But many have misinterpreted this cross to mean sicknesses, sufferings, afflictions etc.
So even if a man and his family is now paying dearly and grievously, in carrying the double portion of Achan and Gehazi lots, for coveting a neighbour's property kept in his custody, he is carrying his cross.
Or if he is rather paying for his ignorance and negligence of his divine duties, he must be carrying his cross.
Let's shoot traight from the hip, denying your self and taking up your cross means DISCIPLINE AND RESPONSIBILITY. That is the cross you are to carry as a believer. It takes discipline to deny yourself or even defer a legitimate gratification like food or material needs. Food is smelling nicely from the kitchen but that day happens to be a Wednesday you waits on God on a fast, then, you've got to deny yourself. And that takes discipline.
A fine designer shoe you saw in a boutique of your exact size, but what remains on you is your tithes, which Jesus Himself commanded "...this ye ought to do" Then you've got to take your eyes off and let go of that shoe. And that again takes resolute discipline.
We can go on and on.
Same go for general and specific divine instructions you must carry out in your day to day life as a Christian believer. The flesh is saying no, but you have to put it under and say a firm "yes you must" This is the cross you are meant to carry daily as a Christian believer.
When you discipline yourself to carry out these duties and responsibilities, certainly and as sure as a day breaks after a night, you must reap the rewards in bountiful folds. Because, He has not called the seed of Jacob to seek Him in vain.
And God forbids you not carrying out these duties and responsibilities and the chickens come home to roost. Talking of the consequences! Blaming a man is only postponing your day of change.
So also is you reading this and postponing your day of salvation by shifting it to another day or to another man. It is really you Christ is speaking to and seeking today.
That you come to Him and receive the grace to be saved and to function without struggle, to carry out your divine duties and responsibilities to your Maker while you are here on earth.
