"Assisting people in re-gaining hope and a better way of life."

Sunday, February 08, 2004

In our weekly devotions, we are in the middle of a series on "Getting R.E.A.L. with God". Each letter defines an aspect of Christian life:
R-ight with God
E-ducated in God's Word
A-sking in Prayer, and
L-iving a Christian Life.

God has been blessing the sharing of His Word. His Spirit has been moving with power in those whose hearts are receptive to the Word. But...
It concerns me that many "Christians" are so consumed with "the world" (the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life... I John 2:16) that we never get around to walking with God. Often we speak religiously but live worldly lives. Shame on us!
We are called to be transformed from being worldly into being like Christ (Rom. 12:1-2). When we make excuses for ourselves, or have no conscience whatsoever, we are being Devilians (little devils), not Christians (little Christs)! In II Peter 1:10 the Bible says to "make your calling and election sure." If you find yourself not "walking with God", you need to "get R.E.A.L." with God. Be sure you are a son of God. Then be sure you are acting like a son of God. If you aren't sure how to do this, ask God! James 1:5 says, "If you lack wisdom, ask God, who gives freely to all." Then pick up the phone and call us. We are here to minister and to help. We would be glad to help you spiritually even as we help so many physically. God bless you as you seek Him! Geoff
