Proverbs 27:17

17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend.        Proverbs 27:17

We are called to sharpen one another.  We are called to challenge one another onto deeper faith and character in Christ.  If our lives are not challenging people to a deeper walk with Christ then we simply need to ask ourselves what are we truly living for.  If we are simply seeking the pleasures of this world and to be received by everyone and liked by everyone than we are simply wasting our time upon this earth.  The desires of this world are empty and in the end lead to destruction.  Being liked by everyone is a pointless exercise and is not biblical but is actually founded in our fleshly nature.  In the end Jesus was rejected by all, but He was faithful to the Father’s plan.  In this life if we truly follow Jesus Christ we will be rejected and we will be persecuted, but the pain and sorrow of this world is temporary compared to the glory of His kingdom.  Commit yourself to live daily for the Lord and be the living sacrifice He has called you to be.  The hour grows short for the body of Christ upon this earth.  May we be who the Lord has called us to be and spurn one another onto a deeper walk and intimacy with the Lord.
