Can you guess what five things I enjoy the most? They are…
- Spending time studying the Bible on my own and with others, especially family.
- Praying on my own and with others, especially family.
- Witnessing the truths of God with the lost.
- Helping and praying with the homeless and others in need.
- Visiting people in nursing homes/assisted living facilities and in prison.
I know that my list of things I most enjoy doing may not be your same desires, but I hope and pray that it will be someday, if not soon. You see, our time in this life is short, so making God our highest priority should be important to us. For only people that do seek the Lord first and do His will are obeying what Jesus said. He taught, 1“but seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.” (Matthew 6:33,34) We can spend time doing other things that are not sinful, but what we most love to do should be things of God. This is what Jesus is asking of every person calls themselves a Christian and a believer in Him. You know, what Jesus wants the most out of us, is to listen to His voice and do His will. This can easily happen when we are seeking God each day. Then, can we be led by the Holy Spirit and start doing what God asks of us. This is also when our timeframe of doing His will, will open up like never before. In the past, you may not have had time to read the Bible, pray, witness to people, visiting people in need, and help others, but your schedule is not wide open for God to fill it. This is if you really desire to follow Jesus and go to heaven someday. For only people that enjoy doing His will, will be saved and allowed into the new earth and the new heaven.
Let us pray:
Oh Lord, I pray that people who say they believe in You will also put You first. So many people I have talked to over the years that call themselves Christian don’t have much time in their day to read the Bible and even pray. They are so consumed with the things of this world, that making time for You is less important to them. These are people who are lost but think their salvation is sure, when really they are in jeopardy of going to hell. Even, unknowingly do they walk these dark paths which lead to destruction and don’t find out that they wasted their whole life until it is all set and done in death. Lord, this is very sad news to think that the majority of people out there are really entering through the broad gate, and not the narrow gate, which leads to heaven. I wish that people would look at themselves in the mirror and start repenting of their sins. Then, will they see how far gone they really are in the faith, and wake up to their sins. Then will they call upon Your Name for mercy. Surely, forgiveness is given to everyone who is humble and desires to be born again. There is hope for people who desire to be cleansed by Your blood, Jesus. People cannot go down other paths and expect forgiveness, but only through seeking You first and making You the God of their lives. So come into these people’s lives and cast out all the idols that they have created for themselves. Then, will they understand the need to do Your will and put aside other things that are sinful. Other things that are not sinful can still take place, but should never consume what we do or become our priority in life. People just need to be awakened to understand this truth. As for me, I will continue to walk in Your ways till my last breath. I love to worship You, learn from You, serve You, and be guided by Your hand. I also love to help others in need and pray for them also. I love You, Lord. I give You praise and honor. Amen.
