A few years ago I was sent an invite to receive a monthy Christian newsletter from a group of ministers at a church I used to attend in Memphis.
I have to admit it hurt and offended me that I wasn’t asked to contribute, especially since I was writing professionally for a living. Hey, we all have human moments. Then I asked myself, if they asked me, would I be able to have good content once a month.
Fast forward to 2016 when God leads me to begin my website, BEBLESSTIFIED.COM. I made a commitment to make an original post every day. Since then God has given me inspiration every day. Some days, I can’t believe what God places inside me. I love blogging!
Oh yeah, being ignored at that church led me to the church that God meant for me to be. Had that previous Pastor not ignored me, I might still be ‘planted in the wrong field’.
I’m saying all this to say, that if God is allowing you to be excluded or ignored…maybe He is leading you down YOUR path, and not someone else’s.

THE BLESSING IN WHEN THEY IGNORE YOU…
How many times have you heard someone say, “You aren’t supposed to judge people”, or “only God can judge me” after being called out or warned of the consequences of a particualr sin? Calling out sin is not judgment or condemnation, it’s our responsibility as members of the Body of Christ. And, since we are all sinners saved by grace…
Sin will ALWAYS be called out by ANOTHER sinner saved by grace.
People love to say, “you can’t tell me anything because you sin too”. They will even call you a hypocrite.
Well, all lawyers break the law (they may speed). All doctors get sick sometimes ( they may even smoke, have a poor diet or never exercise), but that doesn’t diminish the professionalism of their advice.
How many people would ignore their doctor’s advice to eat healthier to save their lives just because the doctor was overweight?
God hates sin but loves the sinner.
He expects us to hold one another accountable and warn one another about the consequences of sin.
Romans 6:23 (NKJV)
23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Galatians 6:1 (NKJV)
6 Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted.
Proverbs 11:30 (NKJV)
30 The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who wins souls is wise.
Hebrews 3:12-13 (NKJV)
12 Beware, brethren, lest there be in any of you an evil heart of unbelief in departing from the living God; 13 but exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin.
Warning someone about sin is kind of like a speed limit sign. It’s just giving you the boundaries to avoid the consequences.
Remember, the speed limit sign isn’t judging you, it’s warning you!
