Men of Wisdom

MLK took his lessons from Gandhi.

And Gandhi was inspired by St. Francis of Assisi.

St. Francis' words may not be revolutionary to a 21st century man.

He interpreted the Bible, as so many have done.

But consider this:

  • Francis was not an ordained priest
  • The Bible was in Latin only
  • He wrote not for the common man but to the clergy
  • And it was the 13th century
  • He was canonized by the church 2 years after his death

Perhaps we can surmise something of the man by the clothes he wore. This was his robe:

God Births Rebels

When we were born male we our fathers and mothers did not know whether we would be great men or not.  There was no stamp placed upon our heads with an expiration date nor a list of the ingredients.  But when we came to Christ we became a new creator and were birthed into an army of Rebels.  

An army has a boot camp.  An army has disciplines which must be followed to gain victory. Much like going to a gym and working to perfect our bodies, the temple in which His spirit dwells, others do not understand the disciplines required.  We watch what we put into our bodies ("thy word have I hid in my heart that I may not sin against God" Psalm 119:11).  We apply the knowledge we gain to improve the temple ("Just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead" James 2:26).  We examine our progress in light of a higher standard and if smart make changes that result in our progress ("Anyone who listens to the word but does not do what it says is like someone who looks into the mirror and after looking at himself goes away and immediately forgets what he looks like.  But whoever looks intently into the perfect law that gives freedom and continues in it - not forgetting what they have heard but doing it - they will be blessed in what they do" James 1:23-25)  We study lest we be ashamed. ("Study to show thyself approved to God, a workman that is not ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." 2 Timothy 2:15).  We become Rebels - part of an army like no other.  We continue to become all that we were designed to be.  It is only simple and right in our eyes, nothing extraordinary for in His army greatness is assured.  It is His will, His perfect will and we act to fulfill it.  It is how we are designed in Him.  "Therefore I urge you my brothers, by the mercies of God, to present you bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your SPIRITUAL SERVICE OF WORSHIP.  And DO NOT BE CONFIRMED TO THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND, so that you may PROVE what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect." Romans 12:1-2

Are you in bed?  Get up and get to the gym.  Get to living THE life.  This is not just your will it is His.  It is but PART of the disciplines of a Rebel life.  God Births Rebels! - www.dirigochristian.squarespace.com

PUT YOUR MIND IN A GROOVE OF THANK YOU TO THE CREATOR, AND NOTICE THE BLESSING AROUND YOU , A ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD, FOOD TO EAT, A CLEAR MIND, A JOB,  THE ABILITY TO PAY FOR A GYM MEMBERSHIP,  AND THE WILL TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT IN YOUR LIFE. A GREAT WAY TO PUT YOU MIND , HEART , AND SOUL IN THE RIGHT FRAME OF MIND AS YOU DO THINGS IN THE WILL OF THE CREATOR. GOOD ENERGY IN, GETS GOOD ENERGY BACK. TRUST AND BELIEVE!
