THE PARABLE OF ADVANTAGE: LOVING GOD WITH OUR STRENGTH

14446. EVERLASTING FATHER, WE THANK YOU FOR THE SWEET AND PLEASING AROMA OF CHRIST SATURATING THIS ALTAR, AND THANK YOU FOR THE TRIUMPHANT FRAGRANCE OF YOUR POWER THAT MAKES US ESCAPE FROM EVERY DESIGN OF AFFLICTIONS AND BONDAGES BY THE ENEMY OF OUR SOUL. THANK YOU EVERLASTING FATHER.

14447. THE PARABLE OF ADVANTAGE: LOVING GOD WITH OUR STRENGTH

THERE IS A SONG WE WERE SINGING WHEN WE WERE IN KINDERGARTENS, IT’S A SONG OF ADVANTAGE. WE SANG IT EVEN THOUGH, WE DIDN’T UNDERSTAND THE DEEP MEANING, BUT WE SANG IT ALL THE SAME BECAUSE WE LOVED THE ASSOCIATED PHYSICAL FITNESS EXERCISES AND THE RHYMES THAT GOES WITH IT, AND IT GOES THUS:

“MY HEAD,”
“MY SHOULDERS,”
“MY KNEES,”
“MY TOES,”
“THEY ALL BELONG TO JESUS!”

WHENEVER WE SANG THAT SONG, WE USUALLY TOUCH ANY PART OF THE BODY MENTIONED IN THE SONG WITH OUR TWO HANDS. IT IS A PARABLE OF SURRENDER BUT ALSO THE PARABLE OF ADVANTAGE.

YOU DON’T GAIN ADVANTAGE WITH WHAT DOESN’T BELONG TO YOU. AND IF WHAT BELONGS TO YOU IS A GIFT GIVEN BY ANOTHER PERSON, IT MEANS YOU’RE NOT THE ORIGINAL OR TRUE OWNER. IF YOU MUST THEN FIGHT THE BATTLE OF ADVANTAGE, IT IS BETTER TO SURRENDER THAT GIFT TO THE ORIGINAL OWNER TO HELP YOU WIN THAT BATTLE.

YOU CAN’T FIGHT THE BATTLE OF ADVANTAGE WITH ANOTHER MAN’S WEAPON WITHOUT THE EXPLICIT ENDORSEMENT OF THE OWNER.

IF YOU BORROW MONEY FROM A BANK TO DO A BUSINESS. IT WOULD BE FOOLISH OF THE BANK NOT TO KEEP AN EYE ON THAT YOUR BUSINESS, EVEN THOUGH YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO RETURN THE CAPITAL WITH INTEREST. NO BANK GOES TO SLEEP WHEN YOU BORROW THEIR MONEY TO DO YOUR BUSINESS.

YOUR COLLATERAL IS NOT ENOUGH, THAT’S WHY THEY CONDUCTED DUE DILIGENCE BEFORE GRANTING YOU THE LOAN. THEY OVERSEE WITH A VIGILANT AND DILIGENT EYES WHAT AND HOW YOU DO YOUR BUSINESS WITH THEIR MONEY.

IMAGINE IF THE LOAN FACILITY IS WITHDRAWN BY THE OWNER, IT COULD CRIPPLE AND BANKRUPT YOUR BUSINESS.

THE BATTLE FOR PROFITS CAN ONLY BE SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTED WITH THE HELP AND ENDORSEMENT OF THE OWNER OF CAPITAL.

THE SAME THING WITH THE BATTLE OF ADVANTAGE. IT CAN ONLY BE SUCCESSFULLY PROSECUTED WITH THE HELP AND ENDORSEMENT OF OWNER OF THE GIFTS AND WEAPONS OF ADVANTAGE

THE TALENTS AND GIFTS OF GOD IN OUR LIVES ARE THE WEAPONS OF ADVANTAGE AND GOD COMMANDED US TO LOVE HIM “WITH ALL” THIS ADVANTAGE CALLED “STRENGTH”

TO LOVE GOD “WITH ALL OUR STRENGTH” MEANS TO SURRENDER OR USE THOSE GIFTS FOR HIS PLEASURES, OR TO USE THEM TO SERVE HIS PERFECT WILL FOR OUR LIVES.

IT’S OUR LIVES, BUT IT’S HIS GIFT! HE FIRST BREATHED INTO OUR NOSTRILS THE BREATH OF LIFE” BEFORE WE COULD GALLIVANT ABOUT AS A “LIVING SOUL” (GENESIS 2:7). THAT GIFT OF LIFE IS A LOVE GIFT AND MUST BE USED TO LOVE AND HONOUR HIM AT ALL TIMES.

IT’S YOUR BUSINESS BUT THE BANK IS THE OWNER AND CUSTODIAN OF THE CAPITAL! YOU CAN’T DO ANY BUSINESS WITH THEIR CAPITAL WITHOUT THEIR ENDORSEMENTS! IT’S OUR LIVES BUT WE CAN’T LIVE THAT LIFE ANY HOW WITHOUT HIS APPROVAL OR WITHOUT HIS COMMANDMENTS.

NOW THE GREATEST PARABLE IN THE BIBLE IS THE PARABLE OF THE GREATEST COMMANDMENT.

THAT PARABLE TELLS US THAT ONLY GOD DESERVES TO GET BACK EVERY GIFT HE GAVE US.

THAT PARABLE TELLS US THAT NO MAN BORN OF WOMAN SHOULD SHARE 0.1% OF THE LOVE GOD FIRST GAVE US

THAT PARABLE TELLS US THAT IF GOD GAVE US HIS BEST, WE MUST RETURN OUR BEST BACK TO HIM WITHOUT MAKING MAN OR ANY DEITY AS A RIVAL TO GOD

THAT PARABLE TELLS YOU THAT WHATEVER LOVE YOU SHARED WITH FELLOW MAN (YOUR NEIGHBOUR), MUST NEVER BE BIGGER OR GREATER THAN WHAT YOU GAVE TO YOURSELF.

WHEN RABBONI SAID: “And thou shalt LOVE the Lord thy God WITH ALL thy heart, and WITH ALL thy soul, and WITH ALL thy mind, and WITH ALL THY STRENGTH: this is the first commandment.” (MARK 12:30) WHAT HE MEANT IS THAT YOUR TALENTS WHICH HE GAVE YOU MUST BE TRADED AT HIS PLEASURES AND THE PROFITS THEREIN ALSO MUST BE USED TO HONOUR HIM. BECAUSE HE OWNS BOTH THE TALENTS AND THE PROFITS.
