1044-Jesus_Knock_on_a_21st_Century_DoorWe are living in the last days, when mankind have become lovers of self “rather than lovers of God, having only a form of godliness but denying its power…..2 Tim 3:1-5 (KJV) My friends, as a Child of God in the 21st century, achieving total commitment and victory sometimes seems impossible.

Impossible because, the god of this world draws our focus away from what is vital to our Salvation, too things which “have a form of godliness but denies its power” meaning we have an external characteristics of religion or we may go to church each week only to have the Holy Spirit entertain us with praise and shouting with no real conviction of turning our life around.

Have you ever noticed a creek or pond where stagnant water exist, stagnant being defined as anything that is characterized by lack of development, advancement, or progressive movement. This stagnant water only produces diseases or bacteria which is defined as any harmful, depraved, or morbid condition. This is the same with our mediocre or uninspired spiritual life.

We go to church, because that is what is expected, but Sabbath or Sunday school is much too early, and Wednesday night prayer service interferes 20140618-155000-57000387with our favorite TV show. We make sure the big heritage family bible is on our coffee table, because that is what is expected, but reading it, we just can’t find the time.

We visit our sick friends, because that is what is expected, but once again our time is limited on what and how much we can do for the Lord. So now our Spiritual life becomes stagnant, with no movement, which then provides “a dwelling place of demons, and a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird!” Rev. 18:2 (KJV)

Today my friends we must look in the mirror and then look at the life of Christ and then ask ourselves how far have we really come and how far do we plan on going to eliminate self and allow God’s Spirit to take full control. “As with life, so it is with growth. It is God who brings the bud to bloom and the flower to fruit.

It is by His power that the seed develops, ” For the earth yields crops by itself: first the blade, then the head, after that the full grain in the head. But when the grain ripens, immediately he puts in the sickle, because the harvest has come.” Mark 4:28-29 (NKJV) My friends, The plant, grows by receiving from its surroundings that which ministers to its life, which is air, sunshine and food.

RoleHSAnd with a child of God, our growth is developed through the fruits of the Spirit which is “love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.” Gal. 5:22-23 (KJV) Remember The theme of God’s word is how He died to save you and I.  Which also assures us that our Savior will return to take us to a place “eye have not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for all who love Him” 1 Cor 2:9 (KJV)

But are “we ready for Jesus to come? Are we faithful in all that we do? Have we fought a good fight? Have we stood for the right? Have others seen Jesus in how we live our life? Are we ready to stand in our place? Are we ready to look in His face and say, lo. this is My God?” So today my friends, let’s ask ourselves, are we ready for Jesus to come? If not, then will it be to late when we are?


Every excuse we may give as the reason we cannot serve Christ, was challenged and answered at Calvary.
