Allow God to tell you the truth about your sinful lifestyle, no matter if His answer may hurt. It is better to be forgiven and be set free now than to be sent to hell after death.
God knows us well. He knows who is least in His kingdom, who is great in His kingdom and who will not enter. Where do you stand?
Jesus said that John the Baptist is the greatest prophet. However, we are greater, in His eyes, if we are least in His kingdom.
Luke 7:26-28 (KJV)
26 But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? Yea, I say unto you, and much more than a prophet.
27 This is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee.
28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
Luke 7:22,23 (KJV)
22 Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way, and tell John what things ye have seen and heard; how that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, to the poor the gospel is preached.
23 And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.
Oh Lord, I pray that more people will have an interest in doing much more than believing in You but also obey You. From Your Words, I know that keeping Your commandments is what will make us great in Your kingdom. However, I also have learned that those that keep some and disregard others are least. This does make me wonder about all the so-called Christians in this world. Do they truly love You, Lord, with all their hearts and their neighbors also? Are Your teachings in their hearts and do they teach them to their children? Is sharing their faith a part of who they for You, God? I know that I am not offended to witness my faith to the world but this confidence has come from You and not myself. I have put my faith in You and You have done the rest. You have built me up and have helped me overcome the things of this world. Even Your commands have become a delight to follow. I now love every commandment and love to teach them. I do not do so to look better than anyone else, Lord, but to simply do Your will. To obey my Father, and my God, is what I most desire. My hope is in You, Jesus. I love You. Amen.
