Some would say, living the life as an believer, a follower of Jesus Christ, is living a shallow life. But it’s not – it’s deep!
The world says; an eye for an eye – you do it to me, I’ll do it to you. If you believe and trust in God, you will do it His way, which is totally opposite.
Trial and tribulations come on the believer and the unbeliever. The unbeliever has to suffer the consequences for his actions. But, when you’re being obedient to God, He accepts the consequences for your actions.
So you see, you suffering for your consequences is shallow. God accepting the consequences for your actions is deep – very deep.
Matthew 5:38-39 (KJV) – ye have heard that it hath been said, An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth: but I say unto you, That ye resist not evil: but whosoever shall smite thee on thy right check, turn to him the other also.
Deuteronomy 3:22 (KJV) – ye shall not fear them: for the Lord your God he shall fight for you.
Galatians 6:7 (KJV) – be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.
