… But if you’re not sure, if you notice that you are acting in ways inconsistent with what you believe—some days trying to impose your opinions on others, other days just trying to please them—then you know that you’re out of line. If the way you live isn’t consistent with what you believe, then it’s wrong.
Romans 14 : 22 – 23
The Message Bible
The above scripture paints a picture of constancy and consistency of character and congruency of our confession and action.
Reuben was cursed by his father. He said “unstable as water” Gen 48. One thing we know about water is its ability to take the shape of its container. Are you taking cue from your surrounding by being in conformity with them? If your answer is YES then it is high time you stood for what you believe. Let your confession and action stem from conviction based on the word of God.
Adaptability and acceptability are the words killing us christians today. We want to be acceptable to the world by not painting a picture of “extremism” or “holyghostic cascoism”. We want to belong whenever it is possible; we blend in like Peter immediately after Jesus was taken. We stay away from blatant lies but dwell in the grey area of over stretched truth. NO! It is time to come out of them and be ye separate my friends.
The early christians were called so not because of where they came from because of their character. Let your NO be no and your YES be yes.
By the help of the Spirit live the Christ like life void of selfishness and ulterior motive.
I am not preaching a legalistic approach to the kingdom life but letting Christ manifest His grace through you and making conscious effort to be at one with the Saviour is the essence of my discuss.
Let your word be your bond my friend and consciously allow the Holy Spirit to live through you. Then we will fill the world with Christ like people of faith, turning the world RIGHT side up.
