At this point in my life,i identify wrong from right because i have chosen to align myself with the will of the Father,not meaning that i have attained perfection,but to say that i yield my temple to him and consciously by His grace,present my will to Him and align my desires in a way that please the Lord.Though I am still in the process of growth,i have further advanced to a woman that chooses to live right as I know God purposed(in His heart for all mankind).I have gone from a place of just knowing the knowlegde of good and evil to a place of eternal life and i choose by His grace to livemy life for Him and only him .This has never been by will power but by the help of God,the one by whom the foundations of the world were created.
As i stepped into the year,i did not make resolutions that will fade half way into the year,but i presented my life to God as a new lamb is led to the slaughter,not that i should be slain or condemned,but for a fresh start with him-in 2009 till eternity sets in.I realise daily that no man can exist without the help of God,though i marvel when men say there is no God or act as if their life came from them or evolved from a plant or "Homo" and fossils as old Chinese myths said.I have once acted in such a manner(like there is no God watching me) and i would acknowledge that each time i disobey Him,i act as though there is no God.
Our eternal plan and purpose on the earth could never be for the material and mundane things of life,though the material seems important and neccessary as the case maybe but they can only satisfy an aspect of life-Though the material things can never bring eternal satifaction,they will never in this life and beyond fill the void in a man's heart.Please do not get me wrong,the material things are needed and the life of a believer is complete in the Lord as He supplies all our needs according to His riches(in glory)through Christ Jesus,he gives us all that pertains to life and godliness,which includes our spiritual,physical,materia
The problem God has with man is that man wants to have one side of the coin ignoring the other.... Man wants to eat his cake and have it but Jesus says I came that they might have life...the abundant life in Him.He came so man may fulfil life through Him.He chose to give up his life with no cost attached to it so man may be free from sin and death.But many a people still choose the other side of life which is a life without Jesus.
Simply put,our purpose from creation was to serve the Lord and only Him were we and are we still to serve.It is so sad that we live half hazard lives,many go about life as if it belongs to them.We fail to be sons and daughters of God though we pout his name and speak of him in our gatherings and exclamations but we truly don't desire to know him deeply,we do not want to identify wholly with Him because to many serving God means loosing touch with the world which has nothing to offer,some feel giving their lives to Jesus means turning to fools so they give up the sweet and joyous journey of seeking,hearing and receiving peace from Jesus.I would never try to say that the life of a Christian(a man that has made Jesus his Lord and Saviour)is rosy,no at all,the Bible states that in this world there are many troubles,tribulations,sorr
What people ought we to be?Men and Brethren,the first step for all who do not know Him is to SURRENDER-acknowledge your sin,confess them and turn to the Lord fully,making Him the Lord over all your affairs and choosing to forsake the world and it's gimmicks to follow Jesus,also choosing to make Him a friend not just a casual friend but an intimate lover and confidant.The second step would be to walk with Him,learning to grow in Him through the word and by the Holy Spirit.Once the decision to know Jesus has been made,the Holy Spirit comes into our lives and dwells there as long as we are in the Lord.He cousels,teaches,guides and helps when we need Him most.He speaks and instructs,reprimands and rebukes when we are out of the way.He shows love and comforts when we are confused and weary,he even speaks and shows us deep things about the Lord.It is a gradual process which we would only outgrow when we leave this world but as one grows in the Lord,he leads us daily and makes us grow from glory to glory.We can never stop growing in the Lord.Woe is that man who thinks he is fat and too wise for the Lord to tutor and disciple,such a one is set for death,and spiritual stuntedness(except the Lord helps him in love).
As i write this early in this year,I implore my readers as I tell myself,that our purpose in this year 2009 should be to serve and love the Lord much more than we ever did.With all the economic meltdown and cash crunch all over the world,our peace as Christians will come from knowing the mind of God.God will never reveal his secrets to a man that refuses to know Him as he wants us to.Yes,God is so merciful that is why I read from the Holy Book ,the Bible,that it has never been His will that any man should perish,His desire is that all men,as many as want Him come to Him and have everlasting life.
My dear friends,ruminate over 2008,see the way it has rolled by like a 90 minute football match?Another year has evolved and some have made resolutions to make money,buy shares,property,cars,marry
The truth is that one day,Heaven and earth shall pass and we will go to another place either to an eternal Home which is Heaven or to eternal destruction which is hell.My friends,Heaven will not be earned by motivations and wishful thinking,neither will Heaven be given freely like a gift,it will not be a cloud nine experience or a circus carnival,but Heaven needs men to work for and that means we need to be SAVED,we need to Be Born again,we need to continue running this race(if you are a Christian)with all perseverance,we need to wake up from our slumber and walk with the Lord,we need to walk out like one goes to the gym to either loose weight or keep fit our salvation with the fear of the Lord.Turn from iniquity and live right for the Lord.Resolve to be the chosen of the Lord this year and forever.Life is too short for anyone to live outside of his eternal destiny....Once again,i Introduce to you the saviour of all mankind,JESUS,accept him and let Him live in you.Enjoy the year of promise...2009.
