Contentment! Great Gain!

1 Timothy 6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain. 7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.11 But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.12 Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses. 1 Timothy 6:10-12

Blessed is the man who is content with such as he has. Greed eats the soul up. Like the grave, nothing satisfy the shallow. In plenty they are never satisfied, devoid of peace in the inward being. ☀Radiant Glory

Discerning The Errors of The Heart!

delicaciesFriends, as the Lord prepare a table for us in the presence of our enemies – Psalms 23:5, so does the god of this world prepare vices – the delicacies of this world, unbelief, offence, love of money- self, pride of life, envy, adultery, fornication, slander, gossips, drunkenness, perverse desires, jealousy and so much more before us.

These vices chokes the seed /word of God sown into the field of our lives. This is the reason why it seem the Word is not working as it should in our midst. There has been lukewarmness and revival seems ancient. The body of Christ is bombarded by so much of the world that has crept into our midst. We have become slack in upholding the truth in love. We have become self seeking like babes when we are suppose to be matured bringing heavenly kingdom down on earth.

Unlike our Lord, the devils aim is to subtly deceive us out of our inheritance and cheat us out of eternity. We get distracted by all these vices so much that when we stand before our God, lifting “holy hands”, our hearts are seething with evil. our lips dripping with the blood of our latest victim of slander, so much evil clothed with fine linen on the pew. If only our thoughts can be projected on the screen in our various congregation! God sees all these, we deceive man, thank God we cannot deceive the Holy Spirit.

The Psalmist observation and prayer is “But who can discern their own errors? Forgive my hidden faults. 13 Keep your servant also from willful sins; may they not rule over me. Then I will be blameless, innocent of great transgression. 14 May these words of my mouth and this meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer. Psalms 19:12-14. This is the prayer of my heart Lord, help me and my friends in Jesus name.

The antidote is love, not hypocrisy, but genuine Christlike love. God is love and those who live in love lives in God and God lives in them. The essence of our being is engraved in love. Accept the unconditional love of Jesus Christ, let it renew your mind, transform and empower you and I to love, honoring God thereby. If you love you will not slander, commit adultery, steal, lie, kill and commit wicked acts. Come to the Lord today and rededicate your life to serving God in spirit and in truth. He loves you with an everlasting love.

Shalom!!
