Religion…it hasn’t worked for you yet…has it?

So why do you continue to try to handle that sin issue or issue of conscience by praying faithless prayers, by “doing good”, or by lying to yourself about the true intent of your heart?

You are fooling no one but yourself if you think that by being religious, sitting in a pew in church, doing “good works” etc., will fix the things that beset you…if those “works” by themselves did any good then this world wouldn’t be in the mess that is because millions of people attend church and proclaim Christ but few truly heed His call on their life.

No my brother/sister…it is developing and learning to trust Christ and trust Him completely that will radically transform your life into un-muted and exponential power that is of the same ilk that was utilized to speak the very universe into existence.

God can then use you to catalytically interrupt the “auto-pilot” that so many of the “saved” and “un-saved” that are planted in your mission field so that they may change from their “man-planned” ways of living onto His living highway whose final destination is perfection and eternal relationship and Love with Jesus!

He loves you today! He never stops thinking about how beautiful you are and how precious you are to Him so stop believing the enemies lies to the contrary as well as believing that your sin or sinful thoughts are too big to bring to the altar at His feet.

He is so ready to change your destiny from the depression, your adulterous past, your drunken stupor, your drug induced haze, your thoughts of suicide, your battle with sexual identity, with the desires of your lustful flesh, and for the young woman who was sexually abused that is reading this at this very hour He wants’ to let you know that you’ve lived in your experience long enough and you have become addicted to being a victim to your attacker instead of the “Princess” and co-heir to the throne with Christ that He designed you to be.

Also, to the young one that was molested…stop making excuses! Don’t you think that He knows what happened and that He was sick about it?

Know that what the enemy designed to destroy you will be the very thing that wakes up the minds of the lost once you allow God to reshape your abused soul into one that resembles Him in image?

To that brother business owner who is considering the short-term “crooked” business deal to make that quick buck know that it is going to backfire and that this is your warning to keep your business Holy unto God by using “balanced scales”…so don’t cheat…your reward will surely come if you stay the course.

And lastly, to that couple who are one signature away from signing those “papers” to dissolve a covenant marriage that was destined to usher in a new generation of disciples…listen to the pride in your heart and know that it is it and the un-forgiveness that BOTH of you have allowed to build up that are keeping you from reestablishing your relationship and that BOTH of you need to forgive and put those papers in a safe for a while as you allow God to restore what you BOTH have allowed to become broken with your foray into darkness yes…neither of you are without fault and both of you have been un-Holy by not loving one another as Christ loves the Church which is how you ended up at the devil’s door in the first place!

Again, He loves you and wants to recycle the dirt and trash in your life into something that He can use to save souls but more importantly show the whole world His glory!
