COVER THE PAIN

If someone had the flu...



...And passed it on to you, would you then go to this person's house everyday and force them to take cold medicine, instead of taking it yourself? While you are coughing and weak with fever, would you come to the conclusion that the solution to your sickness is to force-feed the other person medicine? "I don't need to take any of this medicine because I'm not the one who made myself sick!"

If I could describe how I see our lives, it would be like a person who has a house that they keep stocked full of medicine. So whenever this person gets sick, he or she goes around the neighborhood handing out medicine to all of the neighbors. "I'm sick, you need to take this so I can feel better." This is how we handle ourselves. When we are sick about something, our thoughts on how to improve our lives is to fix someone else. Other people are naturally set as our default target. We almost feel as though we have the right to be sick because someone else may have given it to us. But would you feel as though you had the right to have the flu if someone else gave it to you?

I mention this because since we do have this mind set, whenever we hear information like advice, a teaching, or a sermon of some sort, we immediately begin thinking of everyone in our lives who needs to hear it. "I hope you heard that, honey!" "I wish my sister could've been here to hear this," or "I know somebody who is just like that!" Ourselves never really come into the picture. So before I get too far into the point of this chapter, I want to tell you that if you're thinking of anyone else who needs the advice I'm giving you, please put this book down! No more than you can take cold medicine for someone else, you can't take advice for them either. No, this is about you. I want you to put yourself in the picture of everything I'm going to say...


If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
