We kind of say to ourselves “now let me see, what time do I have to spare?” and make half an effort – to spare, and we want from Him answered prayer? without spending adequate time in His Presence like we do with a loved one.
We would see more often His True Nature instead of so many doubts. We could see those things He purposes for us that are often better than our requests. However, they can actually go by months or years without being discovered because we fail to spend precious time with Him like we do with a loved one, and all manner of things that aren’t important really, half the time.
We’re not really engaged with Him, but we can spare a few minutes to ask for this and that, when He wishes to relate closely with us.…
In these days, so close to Jesus’ Coming, we need to keep these things in mind. Many Christians are not practicing the Carefulness they need to that Scripture speaks of concerning Preachers. Also many have a Careless attitude in regards to sin and are living with Mixed Standards. Are we following Jesus the way He intended?
Colossians 3:12-15 Reads like this:
12 God has chosen you and made you His holy people. He loves you. So you should always clothe yourselves with mercy, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. 13 Bear with each other, and forgive each other. If someone does wrong to you, forgive that person because The Lord forgave you. 14 Even more than all this, clothe yourself in love. Love is what holds you all together in perfect unity. 15 Let the peace that Christ gives control your thinking, because you were all called together in one body to have Peace.…
At this time, The Lord is calling many of us to walk closer to Him. To come closer – like we were when we first loved Him – and stay in that place of fellowship with Him.
So many of His children are estranged from Him for months or even years and it was never meant to be that way. It partly has to do with how we are introduced to Christ through the modern day church system, not just the world.
Yes church as we know it Today – with buildings and services – actually commenced with the Roman emperor Constantine in 330 AD, not with the Apostles as is commonly thought.
It is institutionalized Christianity, that lacks the CLOSENESS to JESUS we are meant to have and the Closeness to Each-other. Many are finding this in Home Churches after really seeking The Lord, because they knew there’s something more than they were experiencing.…
Like many of my writings, I asked the Holy Spirit for a title with this article. That is so important. I also do this when writing spiritual poems. The title can make all the difference and this one bears the Heart of God – what concerns Him the most. “Father, I pray that they would love one-another as we love one-another and that they would be one even as we are one”.
Jesus wants us to “love the Lord our God with all our heart and all our mind and all our strength and treat each-other as we like to be treated”. Yes!
If we want to be His and live for Him, there’s no way around that.
There really is’nt. So many things our conversations and sermons we hear major on while those things that were more important to Jesus are treated with less importance and sometimes are missing – I mean completely left out and we consider ourselves to be spiritual.…
