Submit your Life completely to Jesus.
In this world, although I may still be very young, I have seen a lot of things happen in front of my very eyes and heard a lot of things from tales and stories told.
I have seen a lot of people: who claim to be Christians, who claim to be living their Lives Christ-Like, who claim to have been saved by Jesus and have met his amazing grace doing things that a person who have not met Jesus Christ or heard anything about him and don’t believe in Him will do.
They engage in activities that are disapproving and against God’s Law during the week i.e. Mondays – Saturdays and then they return to His presence on Sunday with sober faces and guilty minds asking for forgiveness of sins which they have practiced during the week. As they are walking out of the Church, the Word of God listened to is forgotten and the grace and mercy they received from God is forsaken either at the door step of the Church or at their Home’s entrance. They return to their normal way of Life again: With the Devil throughout the week and with God only on Sundays.
Some don’t even go to Church. They call themselves Christians but they are only Christians because their parents are Christians. They are taught the Word of God but they don’t live by it. They live the Way they want to live, the way that seems good to their eyes but if you look closer, IT LEADS TO HELL.
While some in this category are not brought up in the way of God but they know the truth. The truth we know about is meant to set us free but this truth does not set them free of their Enslavement to the Devil because they do not allow it to work in them, they do not allow His will in them!
Some are COMITTED to God and love him so much but they are not SUBMITTED to Him. They read the Word of God daily but do not live by it, they preach the gospel but do not follow it. They FLIRT with the world any chance they get. They are dependent on their Self not God.
I write not to point out flaws but I will like you to be sincere with yourself and pick your category out yourself and if it’s not there, you know your category so fill in d empty ones yourself. I will like to tell you the undiluted truth, not the truth which would flatter you or praise you nor neither make you happy because of the sweetened words said BUT the truth that will correct you with Love, that will hurt you because you are guilty and set you right once again with God if you allow Him to do His work in your Life today.
If you are not saved and want to be saved, God will save you
And if you are saved and want to rededicate your Life, God will do it again and Let his power of Salvation save you.
As he said in ISIAH 46:4:- “And I’ll keep carrying you when you are old
I’ll be there bearing you when you are old and grey. I’ve done it and will keep on doing it,
CARRYING YOU ON MY BACK, SAVING YOU.”
James 4:4-6: You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.”
You offend God when you go away from His will and go around doing the things the world do- Sexual promiscuity, lust, meanness, stealing, lying, backbiting, bad-temper, profanity, irritability,grabbing whatever attracts your fancy, always keeping a grudge against someone, not quick to forgive an offense, Judging and other forms of impurity.
You disappoint God and make him so ashamed when he sees you doing those things. You hurt his feelings because you only want to get your way in the World (enjoy some minutes of Lust and Sexual pleasure, tell just a little lie and others)! Always put this in mind, Doing all these things….you let your emotions control you not God. You put everything in your control and put God in a corner. You go shake the hands of the Devil and then return to want to hug God that same minute.
God is not a fool to be deceived or a Robot to be controlled only to fulfill your own desires when you are not fulfilling His! NO! That’s completely IMPOSSIBLE! You have to Let your Life be shaped by God and not by things and your Feelings.
Yes, God forgives us when we ask for forgiveness but you cannot keep doing things wrong, doing things the way you Like. You cannot just keep flirting with the world every chance you get. God loves you so much and it hurts him to always see you going out of His house(his presence which is full of Love, care and blessings into the Open street where al l you get at last is Rejection and a guilty broken heart .
God wants you to turn back to Him so He can help you so you could be saved. Don’t think you don’t need to rededicate your Life or save it because you believe that you are on the right track with Him but YOU NEVER KNOW HOW FAR YOU ARE AWAY FROM HIM UNTIL YOU LOOK BACK!
Have you been going to Church before, reading his word, living a Jesus life and you have stopped? You need to turn back. Look back to God to save you and draw you closer by showing you the way to retrace your steps back.
Do you belong to any of these categories up there? You need to turn back to Him and SUBMIT YOURSELF TOTALLY.
STOP SERVING TWO MASTERs. A player can’t be in Barcelona and Chelsea at the same time. IT’S NOT POSSIBLE! He has to be for one and against the other Club. He has to REPRESENT that his club everywhere. He has to be in only one club and serve only that club or He is in the other and he is serving the other.
CHOOSE THE CLUB YOU WANT TO BE IN TODAY? A club sure of Victory after the Battle or a Club which will lose and be perished forever? DECIDE!
