5/4/23 ECP Weeklies: "Where is Refreshment, Encouragement, and Hope? by Charles L. Robinson Jr.

Charles L. Robinson Jr, a minister of the gospel, (not of man, neither by man but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead) by the will of God to Edifying Christian Publications followers in Christ Jesus. Your patience and love towards one another and others is commendable and serves as refreshment, encouragement, and hope. God bless you and your families and may the love of God continue to be your self preservation.

Jesus maintained perspective. Part of his perspective was to protect and teach values for the welfare of lives. Oftentimes, his protection and teaching values were not readily understood by his (Jesus's) pupils. At times, the consumption of life gained his pupils attention rather than his disciples maintaining perspective of divine purposes being taught to them for their welfare. However, Jesus himself maintained perspective, comprehended values, and taught values as life presented the same opportunity of consumption absorbing attention. Jesus could have been caught up by life but his remembrance of divine purpose (here to protect and teach; teaching a value and protecting by teaching) helped him to maintain perspective in life. Him maintaining perspective represented his personal refreshment, encouragement, and hope derived from divine purpose. The below pericope (see below scriptures) has a dominant emphasis on Jesus's personal refreshment, encouragement, and hope derived from his divine purpose (doing the will of the Father.) He acknowledged to his pupils "I have meat to eat that ye know not of" which indicated his pupils (Christ disciples) had no clue that Jesus was referring to thinking, knowing, and doing their divine purposes was a source for their refreshment, encouragement, and hope. Divine purpose was a source of his pupils (Christ disciples) protection (their satisfaction and fulfilment while dealing with consumptions of life.) Christ disciples were to maintain perspective through thinking, knowing, and doing their divine purpose given by God, for God, and for God's glory through Christ Jesus.

Where is refreshment, encouragement, and hope? In thinking, knowing, and doing your divine purpose. Your divine purpose helps you maintain perspective in life, feeds you refreshment, feeds you encouragement, and feeds you hope.

"In the mean while his disciples prayed him, saying, Master, eat. But he said unto them, I have meat to eat that ye know not of. Therefore said the disciples one to another, Hath any man ought to eat? Jesus said unto them, My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish his work" John 4:31-34
