Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

Is there a passage that teaches don't let your feelings hinder your serving for the kingdom?

    I have a certain passage in mind that when I read it the first time it gave me an impression similar to "even if your sad or hurt the gospel message and/or following God is more important." It was in the church letters.

    Lord Jesus said that we should seek the Kingdom of God first. "If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters--yes, even his own life--he cannot be My disciple." Luke 14:26. The Lord is saying that even normal, human affections must be subordinate to God's will. Billy Graham spent much of his life travelling and preaching the gospel. Plainly he took the exhortation seriously. His family paid a price, but countless Christians are eternally grateful to God for Mr Graham.

    Life in general must not be ruled by emotion. If emotion ruled me, there are days that I would stay in bed! When we read 1 Corinthians 13, the "love chapter", we will see that there is not one mention of feelings. Love is a choice that we make. Obedience to God is a choice that we make. Feelings are changeable, God is not.

    There is a consistent message throughout the Scriptures that endurance has its reward. The service is the to the Truth, as Yeshua and His emissaries continually stated. The N`vi`im anguished greatly over the message they were given and were persecuted for. Let's not forget Moshe, Yosef, Noach, and so many others, who worked in service of the Truth of HaShem and suffered for it.

    If people hate you for the message you preach, know that Messiah, the Prophets, and so many other witnesses also were hated for it. Take comfort that you will have your reward, even as they will have it, in HaOlam HaBa. Even in this world, as Yeshua said, there is cause for joy when one is aggrieved by the despite of others on account of His Name, because the names of His own are recorded in the heavens.

    Emotion is not the cause of failure. It is a resource used to impress a message to a world gone cold and emotionless. Yet, it is your tool, not your master.
