What happened to the old time gospel? Where are our old time preachers? Where are those who refuse to be conformed to ‘civilization’ and liberalisation of the gospel (Rom. 12:2)? Why have we replaced shields of gold with shields of brass (1 Kings 14:26-27)? Why should our standards change when Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb. 13:8)?
Jesus’ natural service depended on Salvation, redemption and recuperating. In any case, in the Church today, we’re increasingly distracted with the last two which are, in themselves, just signs directing us toward and attracting us closer to the wellspring of all quality who needs to give us a blessing that is interminable; a spot in his wonderful Kingdom. We like to catch wind of flourishing which is transient than about Christ’s call to a heart-profound association with him.
We frequently appreciate hearing messages which help us to remember our legacy as co-beneficiaries and our position as devotees yet are cold and determined when the expression of God convicts us and uncovered our mystery sins. The expression of God is more keen than any twofold edged sword (Heb. 4:12); it convicts, changes over and solaces us. It resembles the sledge and etch which, however are rough devices, yet without which a stone would stay amorphous and ‘unbeautiful’.
The Lord would not utilize the nail treatment or pedicure set to get you into shape, he’d need to etch out certain bits of you to cause you to be increasingly similar to him and less such as yourself, if just you let him. So quit craving to hear just those messages that intrigue to you. Look for the completion of God’s promise; unedited, unadulterated.
The main work of benevolence recorded in the Bible of the great cheat (Luke 23:33–43) was that he directed the oblivious. Try not to be apprehensive or embarrassed to represent God and announce the Gospel notwithstanding when each other individual is in the restriction. You might be named outdated, you even stand the danger of being detested by family, companions and close partners since you talked some undiluted truth as coordinated by your lord however who might you rather please; God or the world?
Don’t simply give a visually impaired eye to your sibling who’s traveling the method for annihilation. Call him to arrange, right with adoration (Gal.6:1) yet notice yourself that you don’t fall. “Love without truth is excessively delicate yet Truth without affection is excessively hard”
What’s more, at whatever point you tune in to God’s voice; get it, trust it and follow up on it. Try not to be diverted, don’t dawdle, don’t stay tenacious in transgression. Jesus is coming back again and this time, not as a kind guardian angel, however as a simply judge.
“If you listen to the voice of thunder, you’d never be soaked by the rain.”
“if you obey the Lord your God and faithfully keep all his commands that I am giving you today, he will make you greater than any other nation on earth. Obey the Lord your God and all these blessings will be yours” (Deut. 28:1-2).
If you’re not preparing for Jesus’ second coming then he’s not coming for you.
