It’s so sad when a person can’t realize that, if your actions are going to lead people down the wrong path, then you must decrease so God can increase;John the Baptist did it so that Jesus was glorified,and all of John’s actions were honorable,nothing to hide or be ashamed about(John 3:30). When you realize that people are talking more about you, than the God you serve, then you have increased and God is decreasing, now that’s a big problem, and God is definitely not pleased with that;Don’t allow the wrath of God to come down on you ,because of disobedience(Ephesians 5:6),it will get worse before it gets better;Present your bodies to God,Holy and acceptable,that’s your reasonable service(Romans 12:1-2).
When you can’t see that you have crossed the line, and overstepped your boundaries, between the things and people of God then you are going down the wrong path. Because of greed, loss of title, loss of fame and fortune you are willing to sacrifice the souls, and lives of God’s children to sooth your ego and pride, then it’s wrong, and your supporters are blind, because they now turn from following God to following you. They that followeth vain persons is void of understanding(Proverbs 12: 11);Jesus said,’My sheep hears my voice,and I know them,and they follow me'( John 10:27).Listen people,be careful who you are following,the apostle paul,told the corinthian church,to follow him ,as he follow Christ (1 Corinthians 11:1),open your eyes,it’s not time to play games,and not be sure if you are Heaven bound or hell;God wants a glorious church,not having spot,or wrinkle,or any such thing;but it should be Holy and without blemish(Ephesians 5:27).
Listen, we are in the last days,where scoffers,are walking after their own lusts(2 Peter 3:2); God’s people don’t need no unnecessary distractions, to take our eyes off the prize, of the High calling of Jesus Christ(Philippians 3:14). We need to be watching and praying(Mark 14:38, Luke 21:36),instead of focusing on the troubles, and mess of this world,see then that ye walk circumspectly,not as fools but as wise,redeeming the time ,because the days are evil;wherefore be not unwise,but understand what the will of the Lord is(Ephesians 5:15-17). When you refuse to decrease so God can increase, it shows that you are of the world, and an enemy of God, because you are looking at your losses, position, prestige, and not God. When a person is willing to sacrifice the souls of the people, which should be their primary concern, instead of bruised egos, then that’s a problem;The Bible says,Love not the world,nor its things,if you do, then Gods love is not in you,because in the world is the lust of the flesh,the eyes,and the pride of life(1 John 2:15-16).
In life there is a limit to how far you can go without God, some people are successful, because someone in their past generation prayed for something, and the blessings materialized on them, because God is faithful and true to His promises, but when you misappropriate His blessings, to serve the devil, the calamity, and punishment is severe. So children of God please stop following man and follow God(Ephesians 5:1), He sent His only begotten Son to save us(John 3:16-17), because man could not do it, so lets read the Bible and seek Godly guidance, He will see you through.
