Living Like You Are God's
Do you walk the walk and talk the talk?
I have spoken to others about their walk with Christ, a lot of times they say they are Christians but they don't read the Bible or attend church..they don't witness they don't love...others will know us by our love, the love of Christ. Yesterday I was talking to my daughter and we we're discussing heaven. And I thought of this devotion.. I'm not here to judge you I'm here to share and to write to glorify God but I think you may just need to think about what is written here. When Christ returns He will come and take His church and only His church. He will not take lone christians, we are here to spread the gospel to fellowship and to share, read acts and it will tell you..Even Jesus said go into the world and you will be my witnesses..(paraphrase) and I will be with you even to the end of the world.
Do others know you are His?
Read the verse below,
Matthew 7:20-22 (NIV, ©2010)
20 Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.True and False Disciples 21 “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’
I love this part Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them.
I have had others ask me to pray for someone who is Christian but they say they don't practice it..that doesn't make sense to me at all..how can we be walking with Christ if we do not witness, pray,attend fellowship or love others..this confuses me..but the verses above say others that think they are His will be in front of Him one day and He will say depart from me I never new you..
Do they know you are Christian, Christ is returning someday but He is only coming for His bride, the church..
If you don't like this devotion It's ok..I spoke the truth and some may not think so..if you think it's not true try reading the Word God will lead you to the truth, we are to make followers of Jesus we are to witness we are to walk the walk and talk the talk..if nothing good can be said don't reply..love you all.
