If you ask, many Americans will say they are a Christian. You can meet two people, one living a carnal worldly life; the other a hyper religious life and both will profess to be a Christian. How is this possible? One has to begin to wonder, what is a Christian, really? Is the term “Christian” passe’? After all according to, at least American culture, one can be a Christian no matter what they believe. It is acceptable to pick which parts of the bible you agree with and leave the rest. You can even add to the bible your own beliefs and no one can judge you. After-all, it’s your spiritual journey and who is anyone to tell you what is right, right?
Sadly, this is where years of compromise has led us. The bible is at the mercy of man’s interpretation and therefore can mean whatever any individual decides or wants it to mean. Is this Christianity? Is this acceptable to God? Well it’s time we go to the bible and see what The Word of God says about this definition or is the bible the authority any longer? I’m happy to say it truly is to God and His true disciples. As a matter of fact I no longer feel great about saying I’m a Christian, lately I say I’m a disciple of Jesus Christ because there a so many people saying they are without taking it seriously.
There is still a remnant of true believers in The Kingdom of God who believe in The Word of God, Holiness and obedience to Him. I pray that all of us who call ourselves Christians, believers, and/or disciples of Christ would go back to scripture. I pray that we would earnestly pray, fast and study; not just poach out a few scriptures that we can twist to confirm what we already want to believe. I pray that we would examine ourselves (lifestyles and choices) against scripture, inviting the Holy Spirit to show us the world and its ugliness and how we are to relate to this world as disciples of Christ. We can’t have our cake and eat it too. We cannot justify being in love with the world and all it’s indulgences and profess The Kingdom of God. The two do not mix. The question is are you a disciple of Culture or a disciple of Christ, you must choose… Let us all look in the mirror and let the examination begin!! Only use the bible as your standard, not some book a guy wrote or a message from the latest popular televangelist. It’s time to get real about your faith. Let’s start with your conversion story, how and when did you come to Christ?
If you want the world to be a friendlier place, be more friendly. Challenge: Wherever you are, if you happen to make eye contact with someone or are in an elevator with other humans… Greet them, say hi!!! It’s that simple. Don’t be shy, you may make someone’s day with just a polite greeting and a smile☺
What are you doing about your dreams and goals? Do you have passions that are deep in your heart and mind that just won’t go away and you feel they are never going to materialize? Are you a jack of all trades, but master of none? Well that is just not true, we are all seamlessly gifted at something we have mastered effortlessly. Sometimes we are so used to performing in that area we do not see it as a gift or talent. I’m just here to remind you today that your life is but a vapor. The years creep by undetected it seems. Many of us have these dreams, passions, gifts, and talents tucked away inside because we just do not know where to begin to redirect our lives to the path of doing what we love. The unexpected circumstances of life steers us in a direction we did not plan many times and we just can’t seem to get back on track or even find the track! I’m sure not going to tell you it is easy to “make it happen”, but it sure is possible. Although, I believe it takes us to reach our limit of dissatisfaction with our current path. We need to reach the point where continuing “business as usual” is no longer an option and we are ready to do whatever it takes to turn the ship around.
It’s like walking into a room so cluttered and messy, you get overwhelmed and do not know where to even begin to unclutter the mess. Well, have you ever thought about getting some assistance, a coach perhaps? Sometimes we need someone to coach us through what to do and where to begin. Two hands and heads are always better than one when it comes to tackling a big project or untangling a huge mess. It takes courage and humility to ask for help and many times it is that simple. You have not because you ask not. Do not wait any longer to reorganize your life and pursue the calling God has placed inside of you. It’s time to ask for help and meet the new you and a new life.♥
There is no wisdom and knowledge that is more life changing than that of our Lord’s. When you spend time in prayer and study in His word, you are training yourself to live an enriching and Godly life and how to impart that enrichment to others. God’s ways are higher than our ways and His thoughts higher than our thoughts. You cannot give people what you do not have yourself. Be a student of, a sister and a brother of Christ, that you may truly be a blessing to others. Try to never give people your carnal or worldly wisdom or advice, it profits them nothing. Instead find out what God says about every situation. #Bible #JesusKnowsBetter #StudyTheBible #KinleyPink #InspirationalPink ♥
