GIVE IT UP

Would you give up all your earthly possession for Jesus? Would you give up your life for God? Would you with a sincere heart sing the song that says,”you can have the whole world but give me Jesus”. Do you love Jesus enough to give up your house,brand new car,jewelry,family,friends,and associates. Or would you rather gain the whole world and lose your soul,as Matthew 16:26 so eloquently puts it,”For what is a man profited ,if he shall gain the whole world,and lose his own soul? Or,what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?”  Did you know that if you put anything before God it becomes your idol and your god.God has warned us on many occasions not to put anything or anyone before Him. “Thou shalt have no other gods before me.”[Deuteronomy 5:7].  “Ye shall not go after other gods,of the gods of the people who are round about you. (For the Lord thy God is a jealous God among you),lest the anger of the Lord thy God be kindled against thee,and destroy thee from off the face of the earth” {Deuteronomy 6:13-14}. However,James 4:4,puts it this way,”Ye adulterers and adulteresses,know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? Whosoever,therefore,will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God”. Then we are warned in 1John 2:15-16 which states,”Love not the world,neither the things that are in the world,if any man love the world,the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world,the lust of the flesh,and the lust of the eyes,and the pride of life,is not if the Father,but is of the world”. That’s why Joshua boldly told them then,to choose who they will serve,but as for him and his house they will serve the Lord. The question is who do you choose to serve ? The God who owns the world and everything in it,or the god of the world who owns nothing. Are you like the rich man who refuse to give up his possession,or the person who will give it all up knowing that God will give you an hundredfold blessings with persecutions,and in the age to come eternal life,as Mark 10:17-30 promise to us. Please,don’t exchanged the truth of God for a lie,and worshiped and served the creature more than the Cteator,who is blessed forever.Amen.(Romans 1:23). Give it all up for Jesus,He gave it all up for you. He gave up His riches in glory and came down to reclaimed and redeemed us,He gave up His life on the cross to free us and give us eternal life;and here you are,refusing to give up things just for Him. You can change all that now by giving your all to Christ,to get started just go to the top of this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and direct you. Glory to God,Lord let your words reach it’s target,and accomplish what you intended it to, because it will never return void,and Father in the mighty name of Jesus destroy every plan and tactics of the enemy that tries to stop or prevent your words from reaching the hearts and minds of your people who are called by your name,thank you Abba Father in Jesus Christ name I pray.Amen.
