There`s always something in the way.


There`s always something in the way, there’s always something that’s keeping us from the truth. Too often we hear people saying that they are not ready to make the commitment. The reasons some use, are that they are either too young, or too busy, they have not reached their peak in their career, it`s not their scenery, or they are worried about what their friends, family, colleagues, etc. will think or say, or they might have great possessions, etc.

There is always something in the way – something standing between you and the ultimate decision in your life. In one`s life, ignorance can drive one into the grave – ignorance can be the downfall and a person can be so ignorant that he/she won’t even realise the ignorance.

 

Let`s turn our mind for a few seconds to the young rich man in the bible – he asked Jesus “Good Master, what good thing shall I do that I may have eternal life?” Jesus told him what to do and he replied by saying that he had done those from his youth days – then Jesus told him: “If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you shall have treasure in Heaven. And come, follow Me.” The bible continues saying that he “he went away sorrowful; for he had great possessions.”  My friend you can follow the story in Matthew 19.

 

Moral of the message that I want to bring across, is that many will always have excuses not to turn from their wicked ways to follow Jesus. In the story of the rich young man, according to him, he was already upholding the commandments; in other words, he was already living a life according the law as it was required to do. With this young man living a life that the law required him to live – he failed to let go of his worldly possessions. So many people out in the world live their life and it may enrich many in terms of the good will – good deeds – but they fail to make the important decision – to follow Jesus. There`s always something in the way.

 

What can be more important than to live a life for God Almighty, what is more worthy of pursuing? My friend, whatever the reason is, trust me – it’s not important enough for you not to “lay it down” and follow Jesus. I would encourage you to overlook that “something that`s in the way” and follow Jesus Christ – seek His Kingdom and all His righteousness, and all the rest will be added unto you.

 

For a better understanding of the above literature, please read:

  • Matthew 19
  • 2 Chronicles 7 v 14
  • Matthew 6 v 33

 

To accept Jesus as your Saviour, and seek His Kingdom, start by:

  • Repenting and ask for forgiveness(admit that you are a sinner and fall short of God’s Glory)
  • Believe (believe that Jesus died and was raised from the death)
  • Ask Jesus to come into your heart
  • Turn away from your wickedness (sin no more)
  • Follow Jesus` examples (share His love, and His Message of Hope)

What Would Jesus Do?


What Would Jesus Do?

With the theme question in the back of our heads, we need to establish the difference between the two; also we need to establish the stand of Jesus during His time with us on the face of the earth.

Did He stand for religion, in other words, was He a religious person, or did He have faith, was He a spiritual person? Based on the outcome of His stand, we have to shift our focus into the right direction, because as Christians, it is our moral, ethical, spiritual, respectful and faithful responsibility that we should follow the example set by Him, we have to be like Jesus, we have to follow His ways, do what He did, and live according the example that He set for us.

When looking at His behaviour, His ways, the way He did things when He shared the earth with us in human form, these things will determines whether we should be religious or it will determines whether we should live faithfully, whether we should have either or. – If Jesus was on this earth today living in the physical form, how would He address issues, would He have been a religious person or would He live a faith filled live?

With all the propaganda happening, different doctrines being allowed in one believe system, brings up one question; what would Jesus do? For aspect in one’s spiritual life a person can ask this question and apply the answers to do as Jesus wants us to do. Also what you must remember is that you must always pray for guidance and the leadership of the Holy Spirit, another person’s writing or preaching should never just be accepted as fail proof. It is my belief that every person should study the Word of God and pray for the answers sought after.-

Jesus during His time on earth did many things with which people didn’t always agree with, He had encounters with people where He didn’t agree with what they were doing , what does this mean? Is there a legal list that one should follow, if there is; did Jesus follow this list? If He did, or even if He didn’t, are we portraying His image on Earth?

Remember, my friend, Jesus says in His Word that His Kingdom is not of this World (John 18 v 36), Jesus also say in His Word that we should not be conformed to this world (Rom 12 v 2) – should we then conform to this world`s church standards, or should we conform to His Word. In many ways, the church of today are defying the Word of God by obeying man made rules and following legal list made up by man to benefit man; Jesus during His days on Earth did not just follow the scribes and the Pharisees – many time, He went against what they stood for, we tend to sometimes look into our blinkers and follow blindly, instead of questioning and studying and praying about a certain issue, we would follow blindly.

When Jesus wasn`t satisfied with something, He made it known to them that see themselves as people in esteemed positions, if we are to follow His example, what are we to do? Should we follow blindly, or should we speak out?

We know that He healed people on the Sabbath, we know He touch the “untouchables” (lepers), sat with filth (prostitutes, tax collectors, etc.), He threw the business people out of the temple, etc. – now it’s not a matter of “what would Jesus Do? – It’s a matter of what He did and we ought to follow His example.

Here are some references to assist with this topic:

• John 18 (His Kingdom)
• Romans 12 (be not conformed to this world)
• John 5 (Healing on a Sabbath)
• Mark 14 (Leper)

To accept Jesus as your Saviour, and seek His Kingdom, start by:
• Repenting and ask for forgiveness(admit that you are a sinner and fall short of God’s Glory)
• Believe (believe that Jesus died and was raised from the death)
• Ask Jesus to come into your heart
• Turn away from your wickedness (sin no more)
• Follow Jesus` examples (share His love, and His Message of Hope)

Every day in life, we fall into the trap called “worry”


Every day in life, we fall into the trap called “worry”. We worry about many things – about what we’re going to wear, what we’re going to eat, what we’re going to do, what we’re going to become, what’s going to happen after this, how are we going to survive, what are others going to think about us, and the list goes on and on and on.
We tend to worry continuously, and our concerns revolves mostly around things that are in the past, current, and yet to occur, also note that our concerns is also mostly revolving around the physical being called me – it seems a bit strange though; how one (or many) can focus so much on the physical side of this being called “me”, and focus little on the mental (spiritual) being within me.
Many philosophers, public figures(speakers),motivational and inspirational speakers that are around in this day, age, time; tend to build their castles around the being called “me” (or “self”). They go around and give lectures, speeches, motivationals, etc.; teaching how one can improve “me” or “self” and call it self-esteem. People sitting in on these motivationals that deals with self-esteem end up being more self-focused and “worry” more about “self”. This person(s) end up looking at him/herself in the mirror speaking to him/herself; telling “self” that “I am the man” or “I am the woman” or “I am successful” or “I am beautiful” or “I am important” and the list can go on and on and on. We can dwell off the topic at hand that deals with “worry” and speak about self esteem, but for the intended purpose, let’s stay here.
My friend, it is my intention to speak on the topic “worry” – while it is man and satan`s plan to lead us into the trap of “worrying”, it is God’s intention for us to live without it. Let me introduce to YOU, my friend – there’s a man called Jesus, and He wants for us to stop focusing on the physical side of “me”. Jesus wants us to live a care-free life, seeking His Kingdom and His righteousness, so that all our needs will be taken care of. Jesus wants us to leave our worries behind, take up our cross and follow Him, far to many times too many people have turn around at the moment of surrendering his/her life to Christ pursuing His Kingdom and have fallen into this trap called “worry”. They end up resenting their self for not making the move.
My friend if this is you; please be aware that His Grace is sufficient to carry YOU through, make that decision today – live YOUR life to the Glory of God as from today, seek His Kingdom and His righteousness. Do not “worry” of:
• what you going to wear,
• what your friend or family is going to think or say;
• the road that lies ahead;
Seek His Kingdom and His righteousness, and God shall provide for the rest.
To accept Jesus as your Saviour, and seek His Kingdom, start by:
• Repenting and ask for forgiveness(admit that you are a sinner and fall short of God’s Glory)
• Believe (believe that Jesus died and was raised from the death)
• Ask Jesus to come into your heart
• Turn away from your wickedness (sin no more)
• Follow Jesus` examples (share His love, and His Message of Hope)
