Why would one lay down your life for your friends?

#1 The Obvious answer is love

I am thinking of the movie “Legends of a Fall”, where Tristan goes to war with one goal is to protect his brother Samuel. His father asked him to look after his brother. Samuel was more of a intellectual and not much of a practical guy when it came to war and his father knew it. I am sure that Tristan had to protect his brother when he was young and inexperienced as well. 

  • So in essence when you feel protective over someone you really love them. 
  • It is like a mom with her kids. The mother hen always protect her young as do most animals.
  • It seems like a survival instinct that is imprinted on us.
  • So spiritually why is it that we do not feel protective?
    • We might not be that close to God to see people’s spiritual condition.
    • We might not be aware of someones spiritual condition, although they look fine on the outside. 
    • Our priorities is not set on caring for our friends spiritually.

#2 So spiritually why is it not the same

What is an unreliable person like?

Make appointments but do not keep them. They say yes to you but actually means no. People cannot trust the person version of the story, in essence they lie to please people. They are naïve enough to think people will believe their wilful lies, but over time people realize their words are meaningless. They have an inability to deal with reality and like living in their own dream world. They do not get far in life and will never to be able to a Real Christian unless they change.

#3 A Qualified Person

What is an qualified person like?

They have a positive attitude about life, they are going somewhere. Being a team player they realize the whole is bigger than the sum of one. Having goals in their life they want to achieve them and enable them to be self-motivated. They realize nothing comes from nothing and have a strong work ethic. They are dependable, detail orientated and a good communicator.

Inadequate, incapable, ineligible, inexperienced, unfit, unprepared, unskilled, amateur, bush-league, disqualified, ill-equipped, not up to, enequipped & unfitted.

Coach, develop, explain, instruct, lecture, show, train, tutor, brief, communicate, discipline, enlighten, illustrate, interpret, nurture, school, give instruction, give lesson, give the facts, improve mind and show the ropes.

What is the opposite of being able to teach?

You mislead, confuse, misdirect, neglect, abandon, destroy and ignore people.

So in summary a reliable person is someone who is trustworthy, qualified and able to teach.

An unreliable person is dishonest, a wilful liar, an amateur, incapable and destroys people.

Choose wisely which one will honor God. We all have to grow in this area, but it takes a

decisive person to choose to please God rather than his sinful nature.
