Oh, I know somebody will get mad over this one. Hopefully it will spark the need for change! The truth is the truth no matter who tell it. I believe with all of my being, “if you’re not sold out, you’re a sell out who’s on the wrong side). You already know if you’re for Him or against Him. There’s absolutely no other option! If you’re claiming to be for Him and not living for Him, you’re not serving Him!
Spitting words as sweet as a honeycomb is talking a bunch of NOTHING! You’re an ear tickler and that about sums it up! You’re all about a show and not at all sold out for the Kingdom of God. If we aren’t living what we profess we are putting our souls in jeopardy of damnation. It’s impossible to serve both Jesus and mammoth (the world/devil). I know you’re probably sick of me writing about it, but I won’t stop!
People have to figure out why they are risking their souls for this world. If anyone or anything is influencing you not to serve Jesus the Son and God our Father, then you have to leave them behind. Bottom line is you make the choice for yourself, you simply can’t blame anyone else. To give up the world is to gain eternal life and a place in the Kingdom. Talking the part, looking the part, acting the part is in vain when you’re not living the part. God continues to give us the opportunity to change, yet many refuse to take it, one day all chances will be null and void, because time will be up. You can’t get any get out of hell cards and you can’t get any rain checks. When it’s over it’s over! We choose where we spend eternity while we live here on earth!
Those who don’t want to give up this world are those who freely choose the side they are on. You can think all day and all night you’re on the Lord’s side, but it is truly a figment of the imagination if you’re not serving Him completely. You can’t do it sometimes whenever you feel like it. This walk is personal and daily. Smooth slick words won’t do it and as I always say your ability to mimic well won’t do it either. We must be in it all the way, not half way or some of the way; we must be in it all the way.
A lot of people would deceive you if there weren’t a gift called discernment and if the Holy Spirit didn’t lead and guide. People have it all down packed, they know how to do things and say things to make you think they are living what they profess. The problem for them is what’s in their hearts always comes and show who they really are. They are those “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” It’s truly a waste of time and energy pretending, because you get NO points for it. If anything or anyone causes you to want to do something against God it isn’t good for you in no shape, form, or fashion.
As individuals we can’t blame anyone else for our choosing to make someone or something our god. We can’t blame anyone else for the lives we choose of free will to lead. It’s no one’s choice to make other than the one who makes it. People do what they want, when they want despite the consequences of their actions. They don’t care the many people they’ve known to die, some still act as if they will never die. News flash; someday we all will die, no one on earth is exempt!
Many are confused, they have it all wrong. Although the Bible says “if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature, the old things passed away, behold all things are become new.” Don’t get it misconstrued! When it says if anyone is in Christ, it goes way beyond professing it from your lips. We must be born again and we must live Holy! This is a daily journey, a daily walk! We become new creatures when we put off them old ways. You must shed them and leave them were they fell off; and don’t go back and pick them up again! There’s absolutely no other way to become this new creature. Either a person wants to do it or they don’t and believe me; their actions tell the truth! It shows it in their character, how they think, speak, and what they do. If you can’t hide it from the One who matters, why try to hide it from anyone?
Look at the reflection staring at you in the mirror and then face the truth. If you know (and you do) that you’re not living what you profess it’s time to start. Playing as if you do on certain occasions around certain people gets you no where. Every day you do this it gets you closer to hell. If you don’t make it into Heaven it’s nobody’s fault, but yours!
