As I lay here and can’t sleep, I scroll through the Web reading on stars who died without media recognition, stupid mindless droning crap. Then God gives me a thought, ” why am I wasting my time?” I hate when I do that. I hate when I realize just how far from God’s plan I am by wasting my time on matterless affairs.I should be studying His Word or researching how to complete the assignment given. That’s why I don’t waste time anymore on trying to a DEFEND God’s Word, I don’t have to. I don’t have to prove to anyone He is real, God will do that Himself. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing of the Word. Speak truth to others no matter how they might feel about it. Because you don’t have TIME to keep letting them believe lies. We are out of time guys to beat around the bush and sugar coat things or be to scared to hurt feelings. Plant the seeds, water the seeds… all you can do. You can’t change a person only Jesus can. You can only lead by example and tell others of the amazing love of Jesus Christ. Be direct! If they cry they cry … if they get angry they get angry. … to tell someone of the Good News, to spread the Gospel of Jesus …… well feel your feelings and then move past it… truth hurts, it sucks, and it reveals intention. Stop with getting caught up in how others act, think, or speak….. YOU speak life and truth, YOU act like Jesus did (states to BE LIKE Jesus), and YOU control your thought process by feeding your spirit knowledge of the a word of God. Seek HIM. It’s not the words in the pages that makes you a Christian is how well you have a relationship with Him that makes you a true follower of Christ.
Revelation tells of war and wrath and chaos….. my heart is saddened and hurting for ppl as a nation. Where those who’ve done nothing are catching the rage of others who are too caught up in their feelings about the trespasses of others….. non connected to them. This shows not only the ignorance of the population… but the totality of mindset of the world….. satan has his way with 98% of the population and it sickens me. I true test of who you are is how you react and how influenced you are by others instead of having control of yourself and thoughts. I pass over the posts now bc I can’t physically handle it anymore. Gits I’ve only been back to social media for like 6 months. Create an don’t ignore what’s going on…. but make your page a sage and joyous page to uplift and inspire others to be better in their life.
So there are a few words I have for this. 1) This isn’t how to spread the Word of God.
2) Scripture says to be fishers of men, not cleaner of fish. (This means plant the seed let God do the rest) Matthew 4:19 and Mark 1:17
Nonetheless, this is something I spoke to Shane about only on 3 occasions. The first 2 occasions we both ended in agreement on this tactic not being Scriptural. (It’s absolutely not) On the 3rd occasions his tone was different. I knew what he was going to say. I felt it too. (Holy Spirit speaking) He got quiet and told me this,” What are you/we doing about it? ” See this is devotion and passion for faith and belief. (Albeit it incorrect) Immediately after Shane said this, Holy Spirit dropped in me this, “Don’t talk, Do”. So prompted now is WHAT ARE YOU DOING? What are we doing, you and I, for Jesus? How are we the hands and feet? How are we planting the seeds? Let God change a heart. After all….. only He can. We tell others in love and mercy and grace, the way Jesus showed us. So. … what are you doing?
Luke 12:8-9 (NIV)
8 “I tell you, whoever publicly acknowledges me before others, the Son of Man will also acknowledge before the angels of God. 9 But whoever disowns me before others will be disowned before the angels of God.
Titus 1:16 (NIV)
16 They claim to know God, but by their actions they deny him. They are detestable, disobedient and unfit for doing anything good.
One place I need to speak up is at work and among the non believers in my life. As well, as those who are within incorrect doctrine. God give me the words, let them not be of me but of You Lord.
One place to step it up is to give more time to serving. God give me the hands and feet of Jesus, loving and helping those who need You most.
One place I have spoken up is all social media and in 1 on 1 conversations.
One place I have stepped it up is to sticking to what Shane taught me, and holding firm in my faith. In my studying and prayer.
Where is the one place in your life that you need to speak up ? Step it up? What about the places that need you to? Stand strong and speak up about Jesus and your Faith. Follow your words by examples and actions in your life. LIVE THE WORD!!
