I remember one time when I bumped into my Mom's friend and after exchanging pleasantries, she asked me if my mother is still a 'born again' christian and I replied 'yes', then she added 'Oh well, you know because she suffered much in her life, she needs to eh?" I just smiled. She was a Methodist herself.
I was actually biting my tongue with that comment, not because it was about my mother but because being a christian is not what people assume it to be.
Serving Christ is not a phase, it's not a crutch that we use to get through life, it is well more and beyond that. The life of Jesus Christ is not a philosophy that we study, it is not understood with carnal minds and knowledge. We cannot, try as we may, use logic and science to make sense of it all BUT it takes a heart of faith, a heart void of any doubt for God to be able to break through and reveal Himself to us.
To know God is to take Him in, inside your heart, believing and obeying His word...to be true and faithful witnesses to our Bridegroom, amen. The scripture says in 2 Cor.3:6, that the letter killeth but the spirit giveth LIFE...
Our God is real, He is not a product of some made-up ideology. He is not a myth or a super hero character who healed people 2000 years ago. Friend, He is your Maker, the creator of all life...even if man's knowledge try to discredit who He really is does not change that truth.
To some, joining church or jumping into christianity as a phase or trend, or to even use Jesus as a crutch in life- only wanting Him in times of need- is not right.
If we decide to follow and serve God, let us do it with all of our heart, all of our soul and all of our mind. Knowing fully well that it is a serious matter and knowing what it requires- to lay down our lives, our will daily. Bringing the flesh into subjection, to be able to set ourselves aside and be God's Bride body in this age. Manifesting only Jesus. Amen.
God bless you all.
"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.
For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil. " Ecclesiastes 12: 13-14
