This is the message

Updated on June 13, 2012

How can you?


How can you call yourself a Christian while serving Satan?


This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all. If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth.
1 John 1:5-6, New International Version


How can you say you love Jesus, yet you hate your neighbour because of the colour of his skin or ethnic background?


God knows people's hearts, and he confirmed that he accepts Gentiles by giving them the Holy Spirit, just as he did to us."
-- Acts 15:8 new living testament


How can you say you love Jesus, yet you viciously spread vile gossip about others or make fun of them because they are not like you?


“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Galatians 5:22-23 New International Version)


How can you say you are a Christian when you believe it more important to spoil yourself with emptiness (Materialism is emptiness because although it brings you temporary satisfaction, it does not bring you joy or love) while ignoring the need of others?


The toys and blocks with which we play Are houses, lands and gold. Their values quickly pass away, As does a tale that's told. But kindly, gracious deeds abide, Their wealth will not depart; Their flowers of joy are multiplied In gardens of the heart. Charles Russell Wakeley


How can you call yourself a Christian when you arrogantly quickly and loudly self righteously point the finger at another yet ignore the beam in your eye? Should you not be more energetic to improve yourself, rather than knock someone else down?


We were called to be witnesses, not lawyers or judges.


Be not angry that you cannot make others as you wish them to be, since you cannot make yourself as you wish to be. Thomas A. Kempis


How can you call yourself a Christian when instead of taking time to be with God, you perversely take pleasure in watching the filth that is called entertainment in the movies, on TV or with the rubbish they call music today? Why don’t you take some time to be with nature where you can see, taste and feel Gods beauty? What better place is there to enjoy His company?


God will one day hold us each accountable for all the things He created for us to enjoy, but we refused to do so. Rabbanic Saying


How are you measuring up? Not too good maybe?


Then let’s take some time to correct your walk. Let’s get you off the wrong path and back onto the path you belong on.


Prayer: Please Jehovah Rohi (God is our Sheppard) accept my shameful confession of _________ (confess your wrong attitude and behaviour). I am truly sorry for going off Your path and walking in the sewer of sin. By Your loving grace, guide me back into fellowship with You. I ask this in the great name of my beloved Savior Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
