Why accept all His tangible gifts,and reject His only begotten Son? Sometimes we let the abundance of God’s gifts cloud our judgements, and lead us down the wrong path, thus separating us from the giver who is God, It also tarnish the gifts, ruins Jesus Holy Name, and the believers credibility. We as Christians, must learn to escape the corruption of this world,which is publicize by its evil desires,”For God giveth to a man who is good in His sight, wisdom, knowledge, and joy; but to the sinner He giveth travail, to gather and heap up”..( Ecclesiastes 2:26).”Every way of a man is right in his own eyes; But the Lord pondered the hearts (Proverbs 21:2).
Let me explain something to you, when you allow God’s word to fill your memory, rule your heart, and guide your life, sin will not have dominion over you, that’s why David said, “Hide God’s word in your heart, so that you will not sin against Him(God)'(Psalm 119:11),then he said,”God’s word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path(Psalm 119:105),yes , David messed up on many occasions ,but he was man enough to admit it,confess it,and beg for forgiveness,David knew the power and might of the God he serve,he knew without God ,he would perish;that’s why he was always seeking forgiveness(Psalms 51:1-10;Psalms 86).
Repentance ,clears the way for God to work with you,for Him to operate on you;it allows you to submit to God and resist the devil,so that he will flee(James 4:7);Repentance also put you back in right standing with God; a right relationship,that’s why David said,’Create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me (Psalms 51:10).Remember Your body is the temple of God,we are joined to God in one spirit,we were bought with a price;therefore we should glorify God in your body and in your spirit,which are God’s( 1 Corinthians 6:15-20).
I deliberately ,use King David,as an example because he was a man who followed ,obeyed,praise and worship God with all his heart,he walked in integrity ,and uprightness most of the time from a teenager,who was a shepherd boy to the king of Israel,until he died(1 Kings 9:4),he was not perfect,but God chose his bloodline to introduce Christ Jesus ,because the heart was willing to serve God above everything and everybody. But Jesus was perfect and without sin,He never forget God the Father,that’s why Jesus was always praying,consulting with God on everything.
