You Serve who you Love the Most

Standard

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!

If You Loved Jesus As Much As Everything Else

Standard

We’ve all been guilty. I have mentioned it in previous post I am a gospel singer/songwriter and I love it beyond words. I grew up singing from the age of 11, I’ve been around top notch national artist. I’ve enjoyed singing on the same stages with them all over the place. God knows my passion for it, but my passion for Him exceedingly and abundantly outweighs my passion for it.

I’ve learned in my life particularly in the past going on 9 years to lean and depend completely on Jesus. As I’ve mentioned before, I don’t worship or idolize nothing or no one. I know I am “plain Jane” to most. I have no favorite anything. There are things I like, but the line between enjoying those things and worshipping those things is great. I worship nothing or no one, other than the Father. He’s my everything and my all and all. I am rooted and grounded in my faith. I live what I teach and preach. I don’t waver with the way of the world.

Too many people profess Him with their lips yet their hearts are far from Him (straight from the Word). It is so true! These same people profess to live for Him (lies). I’m not trying to judge, I’m only telling the truth.

If a person really love God, then He would be first in their life and it will be reflected in how they live. Instead of getting right and for real with Jesus many are trying to hide what they are really doing. They think what they are doing is hidden or is a secret. Well nothing is a secret to the Father. He knows and sees all we do. He said all things done in the dark will come to the light. It’s no lie people!

If people loved Jesus and our Father God the way they love everything else oh what a beautiful world this would be. People are too busy trying to showboat and pretend until they don’t understand they are on the road to hell.

People are so focused on worshipping other people who by the way aren’t exempt from the same problems in life as you, (love, pain, suffering, all kinds of other troubles) and they aren’t exempt from dying. Yet many of the same people claiming to love Jesus are idolizing people and many other things.

People spend millions on sports teams, they are die hard fans. Yet, they don’t show near the passion for Jesus. They pick Him up and put Him down when it’s convenient for them.

People will go to the ends of the earth to seek love, when most times what they receive; has NOTHING to do with love.

God is being mocked on every hand. In today’s society it seems the norm to mock God, but let me tell you He’s a God that shall not be mocked. People who are doing it will be greatly rewarded. Yes rewarded, because they will received something in return for the wrong they’re doing.

As I’ve always said; this world has nothing to offer but death; that’s it! People who are ONLY claiming Jesus don’t want to let go of this world. They still want to do what they do, act how they act, talk how they want, etc; when none of it is a representation of Jesus. A bunch of “wolves in sheep’s clothing.” However, no matter the disguise; you can’t fool Jesus! You can’t fool God; you’re only fooling yourself. Fooling yourselves into believing #1 that you’re smart enough to fool God and #2 that the world has something better to offer you then God and His Son Jesus.

God has no respectable person and neither does the devil. God wishes for none of us to perish, while the devil is trying to kill us all. God’s love for us is unconditional, but the devil knows nothing about love (he’s here to kill, steal, and destroy). God cleans you up from the inside out, but the devil only polishes the outside making a person appear to be something he or she is not. Sill people would rather profess Jesus but live for the devil. They are choosing to “gain the whole world and lose their souls” because if you’re not truly for Him (all the way), then you’re against Him.

Loving Jesus completely is to put Him first and not put anything or anyone before Him. If people would put in the effort and time to love Jesus and want to be a part of Him like they do the world and all of its ways what a wonderful world it would be.

You Must Walk the Talk (For Real)

Standard

Okay, I am going to talk about something that I am tired of hearing people talk about. There are far too many (so called) Holy people who don’t believe the words coming from their own mouths. This is an issue for many, because they can’t fathom the thought of living holy due to their inability and willingness to do so.

I’m here to tell you as a living witness it’s possible. It’ not about being perfect, because to man you will never be good enough, but you can be to God. It’s about knowing that you know in your heart and soul that Jesus is pleased with what He hears and sees in you. Despite of what the world says about you. They will hate on you, talk about you, be jealous of you, envy you, and even hate you, because of their short comings.

People make choices for many different reasons. People lie and pretend for many different reasons. None of it matters, because at the end of the day; God the Father and His Son Jesus knows all of what you do, say, and think are secrets. None of what you do or say is unknown to God. No matter how you play church, shuck, and jive, you can’t fool God. God cleans up whom He calls. He Qualifies who He elects. That’s point blank! “Many are called, but few are chosen” that is straight from the Bible. The truth always show in people’s actions (whether said, done, or whatever).

I’ve told people over and over that if you want to keep living any kind of way go for it, but it’s NOT the way of the Lord. Our way isn’t His way! This may be a Burger King World, but He’s not a Burger King God. People can keep fooling themselves or they can make a conscious decision to get it right. There is only one way and that is through Jesus the Son and by living according to God’s word.

People are damming themselves every day because they’re trying to live their way when it’s against God’s word. People want to be associated or affiliated with God the Father and His Son Jesus through different titles and organizations, but they don’t want to live according to His Word.

There are people who are designated leaders who are doing everything under the sun against God’s teachings. There are people going to church faithfully as if that’s going to get them into Heaven. They go out of tradition, but as the Word says “their hearts are far from Him.” People are serving man and worshipping man. They are dedicated to man, but NOT God. They say they love Him, but the Word says “if you love Him, you will keep His Commandments.)

You can live a Holy life if you choose, but it has to be a commitment to God and His Son Jesus first and then to yourself. You MUST give up this ole nasty world. There is NO way around it. You must truly submit to God and know whom you are serving. You should pray for both the Fruits and the Gifts of the Spirit. With Discernment you will know false teachers, false preachers, and false worshippers as they present themselves. They are seeking whom they can devour (doing exactly what pleases the devil).

When you’ve given up and submitted to God giving up this ole world has no affect on you, because you know you will gain eternal life. The world will no longer look or feel the same. The devil will try you left and right, but the more you stand against him and call him out, he will begin to flee. There’s no doubt you will become a new creature. You won’t be the same, you can’t be the same. All of your old ways of doing things (talking, walking, dressing, thinking, feeling, etc) will change. If you’re still doing it the same way then you need to re-examine yourself, because something is wrong.

I’ve found that people don’t receive it, because they don’t believe it. They don’t believe it, because they’re NOT ready to get off of the fence pole and start living for God. They want to keep a foot in the world. This mentality won’t work! Many will lose their soul’s if they don’t get it together.

People still want to fornicate, commit adultery, worship other people and idols, conform to the world and it’s ways, they want to do everything they want to do when they know it’s against God’s Word. Yet they are leaders and teachers in the church. They are people sitting on the pews every Sunday claiming to be this when they know they are that! Leaders and teachers are people who supposed to be living by a standard and by example. These are the folks being worshipped, idolized, and followed. Blind leading the blind and it’s NOT God’s way!

People are comfortable, compliant, and content with mixing the world with the church. You can do this when you’re still in the world and it won’t bother you, but if you’re a true Saint, you’re not having it, because you know it’s NOT God’s way. God said specifically to separate ourselves, but people still want to mix and mingle.

You can say you love Him all day long, you can hoop and holler all day long, you can cry and sling snot all day long, but if you’re not living what you profess all you’re doing is putting on a show for man. That’s it!!! Like it or not, it’s the truth! Man has no Heaven or Hell to put you in. In fact man has to stand before God for his and herself.

If you read the Word you know He is the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End. He’s Alpha and Omega, He’s everything! Yet, many choose the world and all of it’s glory (riches, fame, fortune). People build and lay all of their treasures up on earth. They seek fame and fortune, the glamour and the glitz. Nothing here on earth will last and when we die NONE of it is any good to us. If we gain the whole world we WILL lose our souls. I didn’t make it up, it’s in the Word.

It’s your choice what you decide, but know this one thing: time will run out for pretending to be this, when you know you’re that. When you turn it over to Jesus and you accept Him and live your life for Him, those who claim to love you sometimes will walk away. Let them walk! On this journey you have to stand on your own and alone. It’s no buddy system, you have to do it on your own.

If you know you’re sold out to God and His Son Jesus and without any apprehension you can face the man in the mirror and know you are living inside of your home what you profess to the world, then God is pleased with you. This is what it takes to live Holy. You must give up the world, you must die daily, you must be renewed daily. Every day you live you honor God for grace, mercy, and your life. You think God before you do or say anything. In the beginning it may seem hard, but if you’re sincere it becomes more doable; then it becomes a way of life.

There are plenty of people who claim to love me, but I know in their hearts they can’t stand to see me coming. I’m often times never included, but I honestly care less, it’s not about people, it’s about God and my relationship with Him. Some people straight hate on me, because I won’t do what they do. I have given up the ways of the world, I choose Jesus not sometimes when it’s convenient and for show, but all of the time 24/7 hours a day, 365 a year, because it’s necessary and the ONLY way I can live with a peace that surpasses all understanding!!!

I’ve gone through so much, I’ve seen and dealt with things most wouldn’t believe or could accept. I’ve been tried by the fire, yet I stand; and in my standing, if I hadn’t of gone through all I went through to get here today, my life would be different. I wouldn’t have made it through, but because I trusted in God and I cast my cares and my fears on Him, I made it through EVERY single time. It has made me much stronger. I work within the power God gave me and because I believe, I receive much strength. I know He’s real, I know what He can and will do if you allow. It’s possible to live Holy, but you must truly want it.

Many days you may want to throw in the tile, but then you remember troubles don’t last always and “joy cometh in the morning.” We have to learn to tarry and know He is EXACTLY who He says He is. That’s what I believe!!! I’m not trying to force it on anyone, I’m simply telling you about me. I’m telling you what I know. I don’t take the Word and try to twist it or manipulate it, I see it for what it is. Accept it or not! There is a price to be paid for taking from the Word and for adding to the Word, both are against the Word of God.

I want people to truly grasp the fact that there will be no get out of hell tickets passed out. There will be no excuses accepted, because you already have been given guidance. The time is now, tomorrow may never come! While people are trying to fake it, it’s blocking them from ever making it into the Kingdom.

Trying to Put God on the Fence You’re Straddling

Standard

Yes you read it correctly. I am so sad how people want to place God on the fence they’re straddling. Read very carefully, God will never be on the fence. You may be on the fence, but He will never be on the fence, so stop trying to put Him there.

The only reason people do this, is because they want to straddle the fence and dangle their legs on the both sides. They want to do good to please man and do good to please the world.  We may have good and bad in our environments, but if you’re on God’s side then you know the right choices to make. If you aren’t ready, then clearly you will straddle the fence, but stop trying to place God on that fence with you. He clearly says in the Word; He’d rather you be cold or hot, NOT lukewarm. That means either you choose his way or your way (anything against Him is the devil’s way). There are no in between. You can’t do both, you will love one more and that is who you will serve. Many of you reading this may not like the words, but I didn’t say them nor did I write them first. It is written in the Word (Bible).

People keep trying to compromise when it comes to the Word of God and serving Him and His Son Jesus. The ONLY comprising going on when it comes to God is whether you choose to serve him or not. That’s it! If your choice is Jesus Christ as your Savior, there is NO compromise, but it’s exactly what people are trying to do. If you’re not for Him, you’re against Him; point blank! End of the story!

I’ve been hearing people who are claiming to be on His side, debate on whether or not something should be acceptable that is clearly against God. This is a clear and irrefutable sign that you’re not where you claim to be when it comes to being on His side. There are no sometimes or in between about it; either you hate the way of the world or you don’t. If you love the ways of this world, then you don’t love God the way you claim.

I know somebody is probably mad right about now, but I will not sugarcoat the truth to please no man none of the time. I stand on God’s Word. There was a time in life when I too straddled the fence. I did what I wanted when I wanted, but it was because I was walking sideways and talking out the side of my neck. However, now that I know better, I certainly do better. I chose the side I wanted to be on. I planted my feet and I am here to stay. No man, woman, boy, or girl can come along and tell me anything that I know is contradicting to his Word and make me wonder if it’s okay, etc. No, not at all!

The Word says, “many are called, but few are chosen.” He gives the opportunity to everyone of His children, He has no respectable person. He doesn’t wish for any of us to perish. However, just because the lifeline has been given doesn’t mean everyone will grab hold.

As a gospel singer I am seeing more and more how secular and non-secular are intertwining. NO, that’s not God’s way at all? He said we must separate ourselves. They want to claim they’re trying to reach a certain genre of people; if that is what soothes you then tell that lie, but it’s not of God. Music is very persuasive and seducing, the devil knows just how to use it against God. A true Saint wouldn’t want to intertwine the two. How can you join with someone who doesn’t believe to make others believe?  What persuasion will that person have in bringing people to Christ when they themselves don’t know Him or serve Him? It makes no sense! Those who do aren’t on God and His Son Jesus’s side, they’re looking at spreading their music further and it’s about personal gain. Too many artist do this in today’s world.  God may have sat in the midst of thieves, etc, etc, but not once did He do what they did to get anything across to them. Not once did He waver to the left or right to prove a point! He is the same God; today, yesterday, and forevermore. It’s people who are wavering not God! People are trying to put Him up on the fence with them and it just won’t work!

There are many people who claim to be called by God to do this or that. The Word says “He qualifies whom He elect.” When you examine the walk of people it clearly shows they’re not who or what they claim to be. A new creature is a new creature indeed. There will be no wondering, no scratching of the head. Everything about them changes. They won’t try to do what they once did nor will they want too. This is the point I’m trying to get across. When you are truly on the side of Jesus Christ and Our Father God, you will not want to entertain your old ways and certainly not the ways of this world. You will see things completely in a new way and nothing about you will be the same.

Own up to who you are and what you are when it comes to serving God. You’re NOT fooling Him! Many want the prestige of dealing with the form and fashion of it all, but don’t want the true benefits of eternal life, because they aren’t ready to give up this world. They want to stay on their fences. One day you won’t get to make the choice.  As I’ve said before, I pray people stop playing church, because God isn’t playing with you. He’s giving people the opportunity to get it right, but one day your opportunity will no longer exist and if you didn’t choose the right side when you die you are dead. You won’t get the opportunity to live again, because while you lived you chose to gain the whole world only to lose your soul.

I don’t know how else to write this post other than to the point! Time out for trying to please man and be apart of man’s click; because it’s all the agenda of the devil.

 

Only A Changed Heart Can Conquer Hate

Standard

I know and understand love conquers hate, but before a person can love; their heart must first be changed. Look around at the world we live in today, there is so much hatred. People seemingly hate for no reason, but there is always underlying reasons as to why. Hatred is a learned behavior. It’s learned through parenting, family, friends, other people, environments, and surroundings; and it starts early in a person’s life.

Some people are so bitter; you can see it in the way they speak and act. They are mean, cruel, and unhappy people. I’ve dealt many people who are in their places of business but they are mean and have no customer etiquette. They are plain rude. This anger comes from the inside; the true essence of who we are. It comes from years of learned behavior. People get used to acting a certain way; they don’t even realize how they’re acting. That doesn’t make it right!!

Nowadays killing another human being means nothing to some people. These types of people have deep rooted issues they’ve not faced. They’ve carried these issues around for years and it has made them into very sad and angry people. They hate themselves and they’re mad at the world. Through the media we’ve seen many have committed murder. People have taken the lives of many they don’t even know out of anger and rage build up over the years.

No person on the face of this earth is exempt from troubles in life. We will go in and out of our valleys, up and down our hills and mountains, but life goes on. How we deal with those ups and downs is indicative of how we will weather those storms. Problem is many don’t even try; they go through those periods of life complaining, but never trying to change to become better people. They continue to do the same things. They hold in anger not realizing it’s affecting the very essence of who they are. Anger turns into hate and hate into violence in some form or another IF it’s not dealt with.

Over the years anger has built up in these angry people and as mentioned earlier, this anger has turned into hate. It sabotaged their lives and it affects them mentally, physically, and spiritually. It makes some people into the walking dead. They are alive, but they are dead inside. They have no peace, joy, or happiness. A lot of these people project this hatred onto others and oftentimes the outcome is deadly. Things never have to get this way if people would stop downplaying what’s ailing them. If they would face things and deal with them, and stop holding it all inside. Bottom line is nothing but a changed heart will conquer their hate.

No one can receive love if their heart isn’t changed to embrace it. Unfortunately many were never shown or taught what love is, but this doesn’t mean a person can’t learn if they choose to. I am praying for peace of minds all over the world. Showing love is something people seem to have a hard time doing these days. It seems that families are against one another and people hate folks they don’t even know. It’s all very sad and disturbing. So please join me in praying for peace across our world.

Hating the Jesus in Me

Standard

I was meditating on this and knew I had to share. I know I’m not alone in this. I think of how people are always saying they want to go to heaven, yet they’re not trying to live right to get there. To take it a little further, they get mad because of the Jesus they see in you.

When I was lost and couldn’t see, I done a lot of things in my lifetime that I would like to never think of, but sometimes it pops in my head. At that time, I simply thank God for His grace, mercy, and for giving me sense enough to want to change my life.

You see; I gave my life to Christ when I was 12, but I didn’t really know anything about living for God. I knew of Him, but I really didn’t understand what it meant to have a personal relationship with Him. I didn’t get this understanding until I decided to give up things that wasn’t lining up with my faith. This really didn’t happen for many years down the road.

After I became stronger in the Lord, I knew it was the best decision I ever made in my life (serving Him). Everything about me changed. Unfortunately I found out that on this journey people get annoyed with you because they get tired of hearing you speak on the goodness of the Lord and soul salvation. They feel you think you’re holier than thou.

I’ve never ever acted or felt holier than thou. However, I have given up worldly ways. It’s no joke or game. I’m in it to win it (eternal life and to be with God). I mind what I say, what I do, where I go, what I think, etc. God is always in the forefront of whatever is going on in my life. Sadly, because of it sometimes friends and family seem to hate on you.

It’s not the person, it’s the Jesus in the person. Don’t be mad at someone who  decided to live for the Lord. Don’t be mad because you see a light shining in someone that you don’t see in yourself. God has no respectable person. Any and everyone can have that personal relationship with him and the gifts He bestows upon us. When a person makes up their mind to stop being a babe in Christ by stop sucking the milk and start eating the meat it means they’ve made a conscious decision to move to another level. It’s a personal choice to make and anyone can decide to do so. If or when they do; their life will change.

People have it totally misconstrued. They think because they’ve given their lives to Christ and became saved that’s it. Well it’s NOT. Initially, getting saved is like a baby being birthed from the womb. Unfortunately too many are still suckling and not trying to grow, because they don’t want to give up the ways of the world. So sad!! Yet they stereotype and hate on people who made the decision to live for the Lord.

The moral of the post is, it’s enough of Him to go around; you don’t have to be envy, jealous, or spiteful at someone else’s glory. He’s standing with His arms stretched wide waiting to give you the same things he’s given me and others. No need to hate on anybody. If you’re not ready to give up the ways of the world, then don’t be mad at us who have made the decision to do so. “He’s knocking at the door of your hearts all you have to do is let Him in.”

WHO ARE YOU CONNECTED TO

Standard

As I think about the ways of the world and how so called Christians are succumbing to it; thinking what they’re doing is hidden God put this message in my heart. If you remember this one thing and you allow it to permeate every fiber within you, your life will change. Just because you say you’re holy, it doesn’t mean you are. Just because you’ve given your life to Christ doesn’t mean you’re living holy or that you have the right connection to Him. People have it misconstrued and their ways of thinking are about as wrong as it can get. None of us will live forever. I keep telling people right now is really all we have. The present is just that! It’s a “present” a gift to us from God. It is right now, and if we live to see another day it will always be the “present”, yesterday will be gone forever and, tomorrow is still never promised. All we ever have is right now (the present). This is the time to get it right with God.

I’m telling you this because too many people are professing one thing, yet living another. Time is out and up for playing with God and playing church. I see people claiming to love God and to live holy, but they are doing everything they think they’re big and bad enough to do. The reason people do this is because they don’t really know who God is. They want to be associated with Him, but they don’t have the right connection. Their hook up is wrong; the wires are crossed up somewhere.

Some of you are claiming to love God so, yet you can’t love your own parents or others in your life. This is impossible! You can’t do it. There’s no way you can “truly” love God, but hate your fellowman (parents, friends, other loved ones, and others). God is love!!!!!!!!!!!! I look at the world today and all of the hatred people are having for one another. It’s so sad. Yet, many of you are claiming to love God so. It is a LIE and the TRUTH isn’t in you! It’s not possible! If you can’t love right here on earth you can forget about Heaven. Right now is the time to get it right! Right now is the time to love! One reason the world is in such a bad way is because, people don’t know how to love one another. Too many hardened hearts. They’re allowing jealousy and envy to blind them. They’ve allowed greed and lust to consume them. They’re NOT hooked up to the right source (Jesus).

Some of you are claiming to love God, yet you don’t spend anytime with Him. You don’t spend time in the Word and you don’t spend time in prayer. You can’t hear God speaking to you, because you’re always running your mouth. You spend to much time and energy trying to convince man you’re holy, yet all along your ways are showing the truth. You’re so blind by YOUR truth until you don’t realize it. Stop trying to please man. “Get the beam out of your eyes” and get the right connection to God. Once you do this, you will no longer worry about trying to please man. You will then understand what the importance of spending time with God means. Your walk will no longer be the same.

God wants to make you into the person you’re claiming to be, but He can’t do it if you don’t stop playing and go ahead and truly surrender to Him. Some of you are too busy showboating for man until you’re missing your blessings from God.

God wants you to lay all of your mess at His feet. God’s not impressed or pleased at what people are doing. He doesn’t wish for any of us to perish and this is why He gives us chance after chance. The problem is many of your connections are wrong. You’re connected to man and the ways of the world and NOT God. Your “present” is His way of giving you another chance to lay it all at His feet. Many of you are too focused on doing things your way, because your connections are wrong or you don’t have any at all.

One thing I’m thankful for is that “God ways isn’t our ways.” He’s not impressed by our titles, what we have, who we are, the color of our skin, our nationalities, our looks, etc. We are ALL his children. All He cares about is that we choose “eternal life.” He’s not going to make us choose it, because Salvation is free! He’s already paid the price for our sins. All we have to do is live in a way that we receive “eternal life.” We do this by being connected to the “right source” this source is God and His Son Jesus Christ.

Still by knowing this, many are choosing the ways of the world and edification to man. This is because they’re hooked up to the wrong source. The only true source is God and His Son Jesus! Those who claim Him, but living something else are liars and the truth isn’t in them.

Too many are worried about the outer appearances of their bodies and their worldly possessions when inside they’re filthy dirty rags who are trying to hide behind using God as their source when it’s clear they’re not hooked up to Him. God doesn’t have any part of this! When God truly dwells within us, He doesn’t change us from the outside in; He changes us from the inside out. You become hooked up to the right source! When He changes us the outside will come into alignment with the inside. It’s like Jesus being connected to the Father; they’re as one. Having the right connection aligns both the inside and the outside of who we are as one who’s connected to the right source. Once you have the right connection you will no longer be concerned about pleasing man and being a part of the ways of this world. Your lives will completely change and you will put down the old ways and become a “new creature.”

God is love and once people are truly connected to Him their hearts will change. They will know how to love, they will know how to forgive, and most importantly they will spend time building their personal relationships with God.

All I’m saying today is get hooked up to the right connection on today. When you do, you will stop cursing from the same lips you praise God. You will no longer allow anything or anyone else to take hold and power over you. You will no longer worry about building your possessions here on earth in a way it controls your reason for living. You will lay down the burdens of your pains of yesterday and stop allowing your past to ruin your “present” from God. You will stop praising and worshipping man and other idols. It will no longer be all about you, but it will be about the Jesus in you.

My prayer is that you get connected today while you have the chance. Many of you still won’t do it, because despite of it all you still don’t want to give up the ways of the world. However it may be; the decision is yours to make. Nothing this world has to offer is worth you losing your soul and spending eternity in hell. The choice is yours and my prayer is you get the right connection to day.
