imagesWhen we take a chance with our Salvation the outcome is always influenced by the choices we make that seems right in the beginning, “but its end is the way of death.” Prov. 14:12 (NKJV)

My friends Satan’s tactics of deception makes us believe that the odds are stacked in our favor if we will only follow him. Remember he must always give us the impression that we are on the winning side of this controversy between good and evil, otherwise no one would follow him.

If everyone saw the penalty of sin was death from the beginning, no one would keep coming back.  But if the “principalities, and the rulers of the darkness of this age” can convince at least 40% of us to change our allegiance to him because we now have all we ever wanted out of life, we will definitely continue to serve him.

And for the 60% that the storms of life never cease, “they were probably ahead at some point in their life, so they know that winning is possible. So now Satan  encourage them to returnimgres over and over again seeking fame and fortune in his game of chance.

And now Satan has the edge and soon full control. Remember my friends, Satan’s goal is to make sure we never become a part of what he walk away from. But friends, we still have options, grace still abounds and Christ still knocks.

Christ stills warns, don’t take a chance with our salvation the Battle was fought and won on Calvary we just need to accept Christ as our Savior as we allow self to die. But a Child of God’s downfall will be the mistaken belief that we can discern the outcome of our future because we keep all of God’s commandments.

imgres18But Paul tells us in 2 Corinthians 5:10 (KJV) “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.”

As Christian our accountability will be an answerable account to God for all of our actions during this probationary period while hear on earth. So we must make it personal and ask ourselves is there a burning desire within our heart, to seek the presence of God each day?

And is there a burning desire within our heart to let self-die as Christ occupies every aspect of our life? We must remember the road on this journey Christ has placed us on is very narrow and very few will be willing to travel it with us even friends and family we may lose along the way.

My friends, serving Christ means we are no longer a part of this world and nothing about it any longer seem attractive, and all of our time talents and money urlnow belong to God. And no longer are we “[spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea].

And we can no longer be carried about by every wind of a [particular principle, position, or policy taught or advocated], by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men and woman who follow Satan’s lead, or by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit].

But where our feet go and what our eyes see and what our ears hear and what our mouth speaks will all be living examples of who Christ is and how He lived His life while on this earth as we tell the world the good news of thus says the Lord that is found only in His word” Eph. 4:14-15 (Amp, Paraphrased)


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