Ant Quality- 2nd Part

Today, we will talk on the next two Ant qualities- Hardwork and Strength

Ants are strong and hardworking. They are noted for carrying objects that are bigger than them. Science proved that ants are capable of carrying objects 50 times their own body weight with their mandibles.This is only made possible through sheer hard work and determination.They are not scared of heavy task, but rather take pleasure in lifting these objects to their colony.

The same quality  must be applied in our daily and spiritual life.Today we will not talk about physical hardwork at work, at home, and at church, but we shall consider the spiritual part.

Our spiritual life needs hardwork to overcome and mental strength to bear the effort and pain.  If you want to grow and be in good spiritual health you must, like the ants, go out of the colony and go among the predators, the dangerous routes and obstacles to go and find your food. The food that you will presently eat and stay alive during winter times. This is called hardwork. But let me tell you one thing, when you reach the destination of where the food is find; it is then that the task become tougher. It is then that you shall lift the food however heavy it is upon your back and go through the same dangerous routes to return home. Exactly like the ants. It is then that you will be in need of strength people of God.

But, how can we explain and understand this parable?

You are the ant. The food is Jesus and his word.

For my flesh is true food, and my blood is true drink. Whoever feeds on my flesh and drinks my blood abides in me, and I in him. As the living Father sent me, and I live because of the Father, so whoever feeds on me, he also will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven, not like the bread the fathers ate and died. Whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” Jesus said these things in the synagogue, as he taught at Capernaum. (John 6:55-59)

"Man shall not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God." (Luke 4:4)
This food is necessary to live eternally with God in his kingdom.The predators are the demons and the dangerous routes is the narrow road Jesus asked us to take and the obstacles are the Tribulations.

 Your hardwork is when you take the word of God and practice it in your life however hard it is or how much you need to sacrifice.The route will be difficult, sure. The devil will try to prevent you from getting your food, but if you are determined like these little ants, victory and salvation shall be yours. There will be predators that will try to kill and eat you, and obstacles that you will have to overcome.At times discouragement will come and situations will at times tell you to deviate way and go back. But your strength comes from the Holy Spirit. It shall fill you with strength and courage to carry your food and reach the colony.
So, today let us search this strength and determination from God. Let us be like these ants.

Keep faith, Thash
