Happy New Month! Thank God for keeping us through the first 7 months of 2021.
How are you doing? I hope you are well. I know I haven't shared any articles for the last 8 weeks. My sincere apologies. My silence was due to adjusting to a number of things in the background. In the fullness of time, I will share some of the things that I have been doing. So, back to this week's article (as you know, I share an article every Monday)...
Your Life Can Be Meaningful!
Some people live their lives as if they own their lives; forgetting that God owns their lives. He created you and gave you life. That's right! Do you know that you have to give an account of your life to God? The Book of Romans 14:12 says "then, each of us will give an account of himself to God." How are you living your life? Every single day of your life is being seen by God, even your thought is seen and known by God (Psalm 139).
Are you conscious of how you are living? Or do you feel nobody sees or knows what you are doing, or that nobody sees the state of your heart? Thus, you can hide things from others. The Book of Luke 8:17 says "For there is nothing hidden that will not be disclosed, and nothing concealed that will not be known or brought out into the open."
I would like you to know that God's free gift (that is, God's remarkable, overwhelming gift of grace to believers) can help you to enjoy this life on earth. Christ died for you so that your life on earth can have meaning. Likewise, so that you can make heaven, eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord is waiting for those who believe and live for Christ. Matthew 7:21 says "Not everyone who says ‘You are my Lord’ will enter the kingdom of heaven. The only people who will enter the kingdom of heaven are those who do the things that my Father in heaven wants."
Have you surrendered your life to Christ? Have you surrendered unto God the things that you know that God will not be pleased with? To believe in Christ means you must be ready to live for Christ. You must be ready to give up those things that are not of God. You must be ready to do the things that God wants even if it will cost you.
Christ has sent the Holy Spirit to help you live a life that has meaning on this earth, and a life that will lead to eternal life. Are you allowing the Holy Spirit to lead you? Or are you leading yourself? Leading yourself will destroy your soul as that is the aim of the devil. His plan is to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10a).
