Many believers make Christianity look incredibly undesirable and not worth the conversion effort. The world looks upon us and struggles to see true benefits of walking with Christ.
With too many religious practices, limited reflections of how “fun” can be had and often appearing like the majority is barely making it, I can see why non-believers choose to remain just that! It does not appear corporately that the Body of Christ is prospering.
Now I’m not talking about mere material things. Although essential in life, this is the least of things I am referring to.
I’m referring to complete prosperity in the totality of man.
*Success in our relationships
*True redemption in our health
*Consistency in our conduct
*Overflow in our finances
Instead many of us are divorcing at the same pace as the world, are dying before our time, act as if we’ve never confessed the prayer of salvation and constantly struggle in lack or “Just Enough”.
We make it seem like the devil takes better care of his than God ever promised His children that He would!
As a result, the world struggles to respect our position and our purpose in the gospel. This is exactly what the enemy wants.
Christ indeed paid it all! So why are we not reaping all that He laid His life down for?
It’s our lack of FAITH!
It’s The words we speak contrary to His promises!
It’s the company we keep!
It’s the voices we entertain when we are alone!
Many of us need to REALLY try God at His very Word! Put a demand on Heaven and stop making Christianity look so unattractive!
Just think of what could happen if you routinely did the opposite REGULARLY!
Instead of giving up on your relationships and seeking the easy way out, Walk In Love with people until change comes.
What about writing and speaking out declarations over that illness DAILY while you do what you must in the natural regarding diet and exercise.
Challenge yourself to be a better representative of Christ in your character to win those who don’t believe.
Truly trust God with your finances by managing your money according to His plan and not your own which probably is not working anyway.
How much more would our Heavenly Father blow us away with His goodness when we truly activate FAITH? It’s the very element that keeps us from living that abundant life that He promised us.
Make a decision today to prepare to go into the new Year REALLY believing and trusting God. This cannot be done with mere words but also in action and deed. God has already done all that He will. It’s up to us to move and ignite in FAITH in order to see all His promises TRULY come to pass!
Until Next Time, Happy Sunday!
