Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. Hebrews 12:1
To keep the fire burning hot in our hearts for the Lord, we have to ask ourselves, what are we feeding our hearts with? We don’t often think or meditate on how the first-century church kept the fire burning, while there was much to lose in those days by becoming a Christian. Nowadays we have Christian Entertainment, Christian Music, Christian Books, Christian Concert, and on and on and yet we still lack power! These things brothers and sisters, are sheer distractions to what is really at hand. They exist to quite our conscience, in making us believe that since these things are “Christian”, they are okay to indulge in. All the while, these thing are really keeping us away from the word of God. These things have made more false converts than the false teachers that are out in the world.
Tell me, when was the last time you heard your Pastor or Leader, tell you to get on your face before God for the Power and Baptism of the Holy Spirit? When was the last time you heard your leader tell you to give up these distractions and get alone with God? Nope! They scream for balance. Even seeking after the gifts of the Spirit isn’t encouraged, because we are in the age of knowledge and intelligence. We need to preach a God that is sophisticated. This is sheer rubbish! Let Gods words be true, and every man a liar. Get alone with God and believe everything that is written in it.
Folks, turn to God! Do away with these things that are bewitching you and keeping your mind enslaved to the things of this world. They are keeping you ignorant to the will of God for your life. God calls us to be Holy. HOLY- complete separation from the world. He doesn’t tell us to compromise with it! I pray that you will get on your face before God and repent. Keep watch over your souls and what you are feeding it with. The time is coming when Jesus will start to separate his children from the weeds.
