The Brake And Hold On
A young man decided to take his boat out and go fishing, it was a rainy day, but the winds were claim. As the young man went out to the deep a hair line crack appeared in the base of the boat, unaware. The young man kept fishing and he eventually noticed water in the boat he thought it was rain. Hours later the boat was filled with water and began to sink. The young man was going down with the ship, he cried out help! His father came running, and said hold on son. The father went to get an old rope and threw it out to the son , the father began to pull his son in, and the son said father the rope is breaking the father said Reach beyond the brake and hold on.
In the book Luke 22:42 Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane praying, he asked himself can this cup be passed from me. The cup he was referring too was the cup of pain, suffering and death. He knew he had to walk through Death, Hell, and the Grave he knew he had to redeem us from our sins. His answer to his own question was “Not My Will But Thy Will be done”. These profound words simply means if it was up to me I’d jump off this cross,( that would be the flesh speaking) But Jesus had to reach beyond the break and hold on.
As we prepare to close out this year and enter a new one. Let us renew a fresh anointing, along with a new spirit of praise and worship. 2 Corinthians 4:16 said our spirit is renewed day by day, so let us look over this year 2011 and our past year’s and ask ourselves a question, have I reached beyond the brake and held on?
Reaching beyond the brake means going beyond our normal duties in and out of the church, ask ourselves can I get better in my stewardship for Christ(not man). We may think it’s hard because of all the drama in the church, but James said in the first chapter if we lack anything to ask for it. We have not because we ask not, John said in the 14 chapter if we ask anything in my name (Jesus) I’ll do it. We can make it saints reach beyond the brake, when the Pastor get on you, “Reach beyond the Brake”. When the Deacons drink more wine then they serve during communion “Reach beyond the Brake” If the church mother back slide and start swinging on a Pole, “Reach beyond the brake and hold on. As we go into the New Year remember we want to be better.
