GET SERIOUS WITH JESUS CHRIST
(Quit Playing Games With Your Christianity)
TO THE BIBLE Revelation 2:25 AMPC
“Only hold fast to what you have until I come.”
One of the things you must make up your mind to do is to be very serious with your Christianity. In these final hours of the last days, before the Master shows up, you shouldn’t be the one to treat spiritual things with any form of laxity or irreverence. Don’t play games with the Lord!
magine that someone you know was made a cell leader or Bible study class teacher, but because someone “offended” him in the church, he was upset enough to walk away from his responsibility towards his cell members. He even decided he’d no longer be a member of the church. That’s so wrong, and you shouldn’t copy such behaviour!
Remember king Saul of Israel? He’d gone too far in the wrong direction with God that even when Prophet Samuel interceded for him, the Lord said, “No need, Samuel; I’ve found someone else to replace him” (read 1 Samuel 16:1). God’s plan was for Saul to have an eternal dynasty in Israel, but he lost it, and David got it.
Esau’s testimony is another painful one. The Bible says, “that there be no immoral or godless person like Esau, who sold his own birthright for a single meal” (Hebrews 12:16 NASB). When he attempted to get the same blessing he had earlier profaned, the Bible says in Hebrews 12:17 NASB, “…he was rejected, for he found no place for repentance, though he sought for it with tears.” His tears didn’t make any difference—it was too late—how sad!
Hebrews 12:15 says we ought to be “looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled.” Don’t allow bitterness or anger prevent you from fulfilling your destiny in Christ. Make up your mind to live in the Word, and by the Spirit of God. Follow spiritual instructions and be excited about your service in the house of God.
2 John 1:8; 1 Corinthians 15:58; 2 Peter 1:10
Dear Father, thank you for your grace at work in me to do your will, and fulfil my destiny. I’m running my race to the finish line, focusing all my energies on being all that Christ Jesus saved me for, and destined me to be, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
