KEY SCRIPTURE: Titus 1:16 KJV “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate”.
The above scripture is a very important one, speaking to many who profess they are Christians yet in reality, they are not. The serious aspect of this is that: you may be involved in religion all throughout your lifetime, but may end up in hell fire at the end of the day. Matthew 7:21 KJV “Not everyone that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven” .The Lord says it is those who consistently do the will of the father that would be admitted into the kingdom of God.
There are some people who are always present in church yet the church is not in them. They are basically full of themselves. They are self-righteous and are always right, whiles every other person is wrong. Some practice secret sins, keep hurts and grudges about their neighbours. They are always bitter about something or somebody. They complain a lot, about almost everything. Dear brother or sister such an attitude and live style makes you a perfect candidate for hell fire. Just consider what the scriptures teach: Romans 2:21,22 KJV” Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal? For the name of God is blasphemed among the Gentiles through you, as it is written”. This should not be the testimony about you.
The sad truth about such people is that they claim to have been born again, knowing all the scriptures that speak on these matters, yet they are not born again. To be born again is to submit your life to the Lordship of Jesus. You are no longer in charge of your life. It is Jesus who expresses Himself through you. You are no more self centered but Christ centered. Gal 2:20 KJV” I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless, I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me”. If the above description paints a picture of your life, then be humble and repent today. Surrender the control of your life to the Lord of Lords, Jesus, who died to save you.
Dear heavenly father, my life has been in my own hands. I have been full of myself. Have mercy on me. Forgive all my sins. I surrender the rule of my life into your hands. Be the true Lord over my life. Thank you, Lord, for saving my soul today.
Galatians 6:7, 8 KJV “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting”.
