The Christian Life

Something amazing happens when we put our trust in God. Things start to happen in our lives like never before. Our eyes are opened to things in a brand new way. The way we look at people is different. Our lust is cast aside and our love for them is in full force. We can’t help but open our mouths for God and be a witness for Him. This hope in Christ is able to set a fire in us that cannot be tamed. Not even Satan Himself can stop God’s witnesses from speaking the truth and showcasing God’s great love. This is because these children of God are no longer reliant on their own knowledge but seek what is from above. The wisdom that God gives is what moves them and every true Christian. Solomon spoke about a person like this, when he said, 1“I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things, and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness.” If you desire the truth in life, then also be wise and discover the wisdom of God through reading the Bible and prayer.

If you are not currently all in for Christ, then this Christian lifestyle may be foreign to you. This ability to live a life pleasing to God may be difficult for you. Even temptation may be hard to resist. However, upon hearing this, my question for you is, are you ready now to change your life? Are you willing to go all in for Christ? Sure, you have a choice to follow Jesus and be saved or continue living your own life. But I am hopeful that if you are reading this message that you have that desire to change your life today, though you have not been able to before. Please understand that this ability to change for the better is hard on our own and will never fully work if God is not in our lives. We are only bandaging our wounds and not applying the true healing power in Christ. The truth is that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. You have a choice to believe and confess your sins to the Lord today and be cleansed from all sin. If you willing, then start by repeating this prayer below. God bless your new journey in life, through Christ.

Let us pray:
Lord Jesus, I am sorry for this sinful life. I realize that I have done things that are not pleasing in your sight and I regret them all. My reliance in my own wants and desires have been more important then You and I am so sorry. You can see my wicked heart and the things I have done. I confess them all to you today. These things have brought me so much pain and sorrow and it is hard to bear. Please forgive me Lord. I know that I have not done what is right but I pray that these days are over. Come and change my wicked heart today. Cleanse me of all my sins. Cast our every addiction in my life. Give me clean hands and a pure heart. May I begin to live a life pleasing in Your sight. You are my Savior and I trust in You. Keep me in Your arms all the days of life. May your wisdom flow deep into my soul. Thank You Jesus for Your mercy. I love You Lord. Amen.

Let us read the Bible:

1Ecclesiastes 7:21-29 (KJV)
21 Also take no heed unto all words that are spoken; lest thou hear thy servant curse thee:
22 For oftentimes also thine own heart knoweth that thou thyself likewise hast cursed others.
23 All this have I proved by wisdom: I said, I will be wise; but it was far from me.
24 That which is far off, and exceeding deep, who can find it out?
25 I applied mine heart to know, and to search, and to seek out wisdom, and the reason of things , and to know the wickedness of folly, even of foolishness and madness:
26 And I find more bitter than death the woman, whose heart is snares and nets, and her hands as bands: whoso pleaseth God shall escape from her; but the sinner shall be taken by her.
27 Behold, this have I found, saith the preacher, counting one by one, to find out the account:
28 Which yet my soul seeketh, but I find not: one man among a thousand have I found; but a woman among all those have I not found.
29 Lo, this only have I found, that God hath made man upright; but they have sought out many inventions.
