Who and what do you devote the majority of your time and service to?
In other words, Who, or what is the priority in your LIFE?🤔
I ask this because some who claim to believe, divide their time into sections with The WORD of The LIVING GOD, giving half or little attention If any!
Little if any attempt is made to relate matters of FAITH to everyday people they meet. A great number of people who claim to Believe, think that the SPIRITUAL part of their lives can be taken care of by attending Church or doing some good deed. They then feel that they are free to run their own businesses, choose their own entertainment, or relate to people in whatever way they want.
But GOD says in Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death!"
Brethren, The LORD demands that we LOVE HIM above all else.
Yes, with all our heart, mind, Soul and strength. And that we meditate on HIS WORD at length. And when I say meditate on HIS WORD, I mean to consider The LORD JESUS CHRIST, and how HE suffered greatly on The Cross to keep us from obtaining the just condemnation for our sins.
You see, HE wants us to live our lives for HIM, and to give GLORY to HIS NAME. Yes, and to be serious about doing HIS will, so that when HE confronts us, we're not ashamed! In other words, to take our calling to heart. Right! And from obedience to The WORD of The LIVING GOD, never depart!
As proof of what I'm saying, I point each of us to Malachi 2:2. Consider how it reads, and how The LORD admonishes each of us saying, “If you will not hear, and if you will not take it to heart, to give GLORY to MY NAME, says The LORD of hosts, "I will send a curse upon you, and I will curse your Blessings.” And to those who trample The BLOOD Of CHRIST underfoot, the LORD continues by saying, “Yes, I have cursed them already, because you do not take it to heart."
Brethren, Because The GOODNESS of GOD has been manifest to us, in the death, burial and RESURRECTION of our LORD JESUS CHRIST. We are to embrace HIS GOODNESS. And from obedience to our LORD, never depart. We are not to trample our LORD's BLOOD underfoot.
Consider how Hebrews 10:19-31 gives us this admonition in regards to that saying, “Therefore Brethren, having boldness to enter The HOLIEST by The BLOOD of JESUS, by a new and LIVING WAY which HE consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, HIS FLESH, and having a HIGH PRIEST over The House of GOD, let us draw near with a True Heart in full assurance of FAITH, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with PURE WATER. Let us hold fast the confession of our HOPE without wavering, for HE who promised is FAITHFUL. And let us consider one another in order to stir up LOVE and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see The Day approaching.”
Now here comes our admonition, Beloved.
For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of The TRUTH, In other words, if we willfully do the will and desires of the devil after we have the knowledge of Whom we are to walk in obedience to, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, but a certain fearful expectation of judgement, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries.
Anyone who has rejected Moses' law dies without MERCY on the testimony of two or three witnesses. Now consider this eye-opening WORD. Of how much worse punishment do you suppose will he be thought worthy who has trampled The Son of GOD underfoot, counted The BLOOD of the covenant by which he was SANCTIFIED, a common thing, and insulted The SPIRIT Of GRACE?
For we know HIM Who said, "Vengeance is mine, I will repay," says The LORD. And again, The LORD will judge his people.
It is a fearful thing to fall into The HANDS Of The LIVING GOD.
Brethren, When Paul prayed for the believers in Colosse, he asked GOD to fill them with the knowledge of HIS will. Paul asked that they would know HIS will, and know just what HE wanted them to do so that they would live a LIFE worthy of the calling that The LORD had called them to. Right! That they would take heed according to The WORD of The LIVING GOD knowing that they were called to live HOLY lives.
Yes, to please GOD in knowing that The Day of The LORD was at hand. Even as each of us know today, that The Day of The LORD is fast approaching.
So let's consider 2nd Peter 3:10-13, “But The Day Of The LORD will come as a thief in the night in which the heavens will pass away with a great noise and the elements will melt with fervent heat; both the earth and the works that are in it will be burned up. Therefore, since all these things will be disolved, what manner of persons ought you to be in HOLY conduct and Godliness looking for and hastening the coming of The Day Of GOD, because of which the heavens will be disolved, being on fire, and the elements will melt away with fervent heat? Nevertheless, we according to HIS PROMISE look for new Heavens and a new earth in which RIGHTEOUSNESS dwells.
Yes, in which obedience to The WORD of The LIVING GOD, dwells. For it's by obeying The LIFE-GIVING WORD Of GOD, that one is considered "RIGHTEOUS!" Isn't that what we Believe?🤔
