How do we profess the Love of Christ, share Bible verses but mistreat and hate others?
It is a sham religion or sham Christian who proclaims to follow Him and desires to serve and share The Gospel, but cannot keep His Commandments or live the doctrines they preach/teach/share??!!
No doubt that Jesus’ example can be a tough act to follow, but we must try if we are sincere about our faith walk.
Cherry-picking scripture to adhere to, twisting or manipulating The Word to support your sin, is not Christianity but hypocrisy!
Be mindful of your words, ways and actions to ensure that they are in alignment with God’s.
After loving my parents, my siblings, my spouse, my children and my friends, I have now started loving myself. I have realized that I am not “Atlas”.…Wisdom from a Senior
Pray before you act!
Pray before you speak!
Control your flesh by putting your words, actions and deeds under submission to God’s Word!
Failure to do so reveals publicly to the world what God already sees in you privately — that Love truly does not dwell within!
“Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal” (1 Corinthians 13:1).
“And I, brethren, could not speak to you as to spiritual men, but as to men of flesh, as to infants in Christ”.
It is very discouraging when those we uplift and pray for continue to walk, talk and behave in the flesh!
They toy with the gift of salvation and the blessings of the release of bondage it conveys, while waffling between obedience and disobedience.
Though salvation extended forgiveness for their sins, they write from a hardened heart seeking vengeance against people. Oft times the very people whom they harmed, who now seek to harm them back. It’s a demonic cycle in which God is not present, and God is not glorified despite the immature Christian milk-drinkers proclaiming that they are ready to feast on meat.
Understand that the basic tenet of our salvation is based on forgiveness and reconciliation. Without that we are naked before God. Jesus’ blood sacrifice—our cloak—that covers our sin and stench from God gone.
The inability to forgive and reconcile, forfeits our ability to take communion because we have hatred or ill feelings towards another.
“Concerning him we have much to say, and it is hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant.”
Holding on to anger, is holding on to sin! God has cautioned us to not let the sun go down on our anger. It is spiritual immaturity in its purest form. Only a person blinded by arrogance, immaturity and having a narcissistic personality would dare toy with God in that manner.
Always approach God with clean hands and a pure heart. Asking God to avenge your perceived wrong is dangerous because the person you pray against may also be praying that same request to God about you! More importantly, it serves only to magnify the fact that you are still a milk drinker for a truly mature Christian would pray “Lord, bless those who curse me, do good to those who hate me and pray for those who spitefully misuse me!”
Learn to love and forgive your “enemies” as The Word commands and how Jesus modeled. Check your own role in the enmity between you and others. No one is completely without fault in the situation. If they write or proclaim as such they are a liar. Never cry victim when you are complicit in the situation.
Never cry out that you are a victim when you are complicit in your own troubles — Mrs. Oluwole
Notice that goodness is right in the center of the fruit of the Spirit. The Spirit produces the fruit, not Christians… Saving faith comes only …Is There Such Thing as a “Good Christian”?
Any wicked person that has vowed to waste your efforts, your time, your resources and glory, shall be wasted in Jesus Christ. Amen!!!
