So was seated and reading a book on fasting and this specific Scripture poped up in one of the scriptural situations …
“Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul; – 1 Peter 2:11
having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. – 1 Peter 2:12
This got me thinking in terms of are you a mediocre Christian? By this I mean yes you read your Bible maybe not daily or only on Sundays during church service . Do you only remember to pray when you have food in front of you or when things get thick at home or in your life?
Do you decide to go to church only to please your parents or spouse or meet that cute girl in church or guy or do actually have a hunger for God?
There’s a whole list of “do yous” I can list but you yourself know what your Christian walk with God is like.
Thing is as Christians we’re expected to live in a way our standards are higher than those the world has set since worldly standards are not that high. Actually the world’s standards are too low to even be considered standards in the first place.
So back to Scripture… Thing is your neighbour looks at how you live your life. Are you an angel by day and a devil by night yet profess that your a Christian?
It’s high time for Christians to choose what where you lie. It’s either your in or out. You can’t have one foot in and another out… Can’t go on serving two masters at the same time cause at some point you will end up submitting to one either you like it or not cause there’s only so far you can please two masters equally.
So, it’s high time to either step up and walk the talk or choose the world. But what benefits a man to gain the whole world and loose His soul?
Let’s stop filling churches and warming benches in the name of being good Christian s since we go to church. The relationship with God is far more than church attendance cause in Heaven there won’t be a roll call on how many times you attended the sermons every Sunday but there will be one on your deeds and your walk in Christ.
Stop with the lukewarm behaviour. Jesus was and still is the living embodiment of a perfect Christian life… Let’s emulate Him in our walk, our speech and deeds. It’s high time a generation stood for purity above all.
Personally, I’d rather stand with God and be thought as weird than stand with the world and be damned for eternity.
What’s your choice?
