Souls are yearning for God, lost and disillusioned. You can make a difference only if Christ can be seen in you. This is why we must truly live the words we say!
This generation are smarter than the previous. They look to match what is said with what they can see you do. Action is said to speak louder than words.
Although the scriptures says go into all the world and preach the gospel – Mark 16:15-16, if what we do precede us, our words will not have the effect it ought to have. We must change this dynamics by living out the word!
When the truth of God is suppressed, wickedness abounds. Even though the truth of the Lord can be seen in creation, for it speaks of the awesome power, beauty and majesty of the creator, and though it is obvious, many do not still acknowledge this.
We ought to be in awe and give thanks, but instead of giving thanks for such awesomeness of the creator, majority refuse to acknowledge him. We thought we were wise and could reinvent the wheel, change things up to suit our darkened mind, but instead we lost it. Creation lost its stand!
The result is what we see individually and collectively. Romans 1:21 speaks volume if you and I care to see things for what it is. Here is the cause of the depravity we see and hear about!
Romans 1: 21For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like a mortal human being and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. 27 In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.
28 Furthermore, just as they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, so that they do what ought not to be done. 29 They have become filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; they invent ways of doing evil; they disobey their parents; 31 they have no understanding, no fidelity, no love, no mercy. 32 Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Father Lord, help us to take heed, examine our ways and repent of all evil. Help up to repent of our evil ways Father. Restore us. And for those taken over by darkened heart, Lord let your light shine in. For all those taken over by sexual impurity, Lord let there be deliverance.
I know that many are not comfortable addressing this like I, however Father, you know it ought to be addressed. We are all your creation. Let your light shine upon the dark places in all our hearts. Dislodge the lies of the devil in the heart of your people oh Lord in Jesus name. Amen
Only the Truth, the love of the Father in the heart of sinful man can effect a lasting change. May that love find a place in each of our heart I pray in Jesus name.
Truth supressed? Who are those responsible for such? Could there be some truth hidden in plain sight? Are there truth that you and I need to know?
Yes, there are truth that is suppressed. And we all are guilty of this. You only need to look within yourself, and look without to know so.
Being diplomatic, keeping peace at all cost sometimes is outright suppression of truth. No wonder our world is in tumult! Has always been! Yet God is not happy about it. Guess we all need to repent.
Not evangelizing is a suppression of truth for we know without Christ Jesus in a person’s life, their eternity will be spent in pain yet in order not to offend, we keep mute about telling them, with love of course.
Father, have mercy and help us all to propagate the truth we already know. To share your love and mercy to our world.
Romans 1:18 The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, 19 since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them.
What truth about this God do you know? Are you sharing it with others? Or are you hoarding it? Merchandising it? Repent!
The human heart and ears accept everything except truth with joy, especially when our wrong is pointed out to us. When you tell the truth to some, you have become their enemies. We must not dilute the truth of the matter just to be in the good books of our hearers!
Apostle Paul experienced this amongst many others. Galatian 4:16 He asked, ” Have I now become your enemy by telling you the truth?”. This was in the Galatians observation of special days, months and so on. Yet, this can be applied across board.
Friends, the one that tells you, and shows you what you are doing wrong loves you! I mean, if you come out of a bathroom with used tissue hanging out of the back of your skirt, or your zipper is down, and everyone can see your business, you would want someone to tell you right? Why then will you not want someone to tell you that you have become vain in your attitude?
Lord I am asking this day for a friend like no other, true, loyal, and discreet. A friend that will correct me in love, tell me the truth about my oversight, and pray for me. Drive far from me everyone that will sugar coat thier speech around me, tiptoe over my mistakes, and praise my errors, yet gossip about me.
Holy Spirit, let the truth of The Word begin to shape my life to conform to the image of my Lord and Saviour. Jesus Chirst the King eternal, world without end in Jesus mighty name. Amen
Shalom! Shalom! Shalom!
