Well, I’ll warn you, there are going to be some challenging words coming from this blog. I only share them with you because I love you as my Father loves me. My Father in Heaven has been stirring things up in me that I wasn’t really prepared for Him to stir. But I suppose if I would have gotten a warning of where He planned to make some adjustments, I would have probably steered clear of it!
The problem is, I, like you, am drawn into this world. I love the clothes, the colors, the sights, the houses, the pursuit of the American dream’, the money, the obsessions. We love our sin and we love our idols. But there is an even greater problem, which isn’t really a problem, but it does interfere with this love of the world. I love God. I really do, He is so brilliant, so wise, incredibly faithful and always surprising! And this is where the two collide! They can not both hold a spot in my heart.
2 kings 17:33 “They worshiped the Lord, but they also served their own gods…”
Yep, that’s us…giving our lives to Christ and then serving the idols of our world. But wait it gets worse….
2 kings 17:41 “Even while these people were worshiping the Lord, they were serving their idols. To this day their children and grandchildren continue to do as their fathers did.”
AHHHHH!!!! to this day even their children and grandchildren continue to do as their fathers did! NO!! we have to save our children and our children’s children from this curse!
YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE THAT CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE GENERATIONS YOU WILL RAISE UP BEHIND YOU!
What are you controlled by, what motivates you? Is God the driving force in your life?
What we depend on we will serve! Make the adjustments necessary to depend only on God and stop worshiping the Lord and then serving your own gods….your legacy depends on it!
