Everyone worships something or someone. Many of us, and I’m speaking of believers, love God but He isn’t the one who we worship. We are seeking more followers on social media, education, a better relationship and “real love”, and many of us are chasing money. I’m not saying having any of these are sins, but when they cloud our mind from more of Jesus, then we have an issue.

But none of these things move me, neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish my course with joy, and the ministry, which I have received of the Lord Jesus, to testify the gospel of the grace of God. (‭Acts‬ ‭20‬:‭24‬)

At the end of the day, Jesus is the only thing that matters. None of our achievements are of significance if He isn’t pleased with our life.

If you are the only one, keep seeking Jesus. The three Hebrew boys were isolated, but they didn’t compromise. You don’t have to be like others, but you have to try to live like Jesus. You have to pursue God, even after you have found Him. You can’t be comfortable where you are spiritually because that’s when the devil and distractions creep in. Seek more of God, stay desperate for His presence.

Where Are You?

Then the LORD God called to Adam and said to him, “Where are you?” (‭Genesis‬ ‭3‬:‭9‬ NKJV)

By the time we get to Genesis 3:9, we understand that Eve, having been deceived by the serpent, eats from the tree of knowledge of good and evil and so does her husband, Adam. They are now aware of their nakedness, and in shame they hide from God. But, God who is all-knowing asks Adam, “Where are you?” God knew Adam was hiding, but beyond this, his call wasn’t about physical location, but rather spiritual. My question to you is this, where are you, spiritually? At what end of the spectrum are you regarding your relationship with God? Mankind was now lost, God’s call to Adam was a proof of God’s love and desire for a relationship. He cares. He wants to know why you have drifted from Him.
Adam hid because he…

Wake Up

August 23, 2014 — 2 Comments

Just five more minutes….. It’s still early, I have more time to rest….. That’s what we usually tell ourselves every morning before we start our day (Lord help us if it’s a Monday). It’s easy to become so tired or so nonchalant and uninterested in doing certain things when they seem repetitive or unnecessary. It’s okay to be tired, but why is this happening in the Church?

And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed. -Romans 13:11

You see whether we choose to admit it or not, most of us are either sleeping, or hitting the snooze button spiritually. God requires much more from us, but we try to give the bare minimum, as though there is some check-off list to salvation. Why would God save us in order for us to keep quiet and not share His Word with others? Why is it that the preacher is boring and the music is entertaining? It seems as though the things of God no longer interest us unless they benefit us. Many of us shout at the thought of being blessed, but we close our ears and shout “YOU’RE NOT FROM GOD” if we are ever told to die to sin and carry our cross.

God wants more. God deserves more. Are you ready to surrender? It’s no point in us playing church, God isn’t impressed. We can be born and raised in church and go to Hell. No, I will not say “a Christ-less eternity” to make it sound cute. We can end up in HELL where the fire and torture doesn’t end. Why give that up for this world that only takes from you and could never make you happy the way Jesus can?

They confess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate. Titus 1:16

None of us are perfect and God knows we struggle. Some of us may never reach a point of perfection, but God is looking for progression. Wake up and keep pressing. Grace and peace.
