It takes more than prayer…
Today I send you this message with love, a heart full of pure intent and with no other purpose but for you to reflect on my words. For those of you who follow my blog you know this is not the first time I speak of this issue but it’s an issue that’s very close to my heart as I want to always see my brothers and sisters live their best lives.
My friends, in these perilous times our moral conduct is as imperative as knowing the commandments of the bible. Often times we knowingly disrespect or disregard our brothers and sisters then justify ourselves by praying and asking for forgiveness. We intentionally say things that we know will hurt each other but in the moment we feel that we cannot hold ourselves and must give our tongue liberty. The good news though is that we can change this. By diligently praying and asking for guidance, “God’s guidance that is,” we can refrain ourselves from staining our hands and abusive tongues.
Matthew 7: verses 1: and 2: says:
Judge not, that ye not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you…
Matthew Verse 18 goes on to say:
A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit; neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit,
Adding verse 24:
Therefore whosoever hearth these sayings of mine, doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.
As human beings we all have faults, issues, imperfections, you name it. An interesting find that baffles me with the morals of religion are how we measure our failings by using certain passages from the scriptures.
We need to reorganize our way of thinking in order to be recognised as Messengers of God, so we could encourage others to become believers. To be a believer is not by faith alone, it is about essentially working on ourselves to become better human beings by manifesting the twelve fruits.
The importance of manifesting the twelve fruits
By actively manifesting the twelve fruits that has been given to us we can also reinvent our way of life:
Our road can be as broad as the horizon, in-stilled with vigor, bringing a revolution of change for a better way of life in every dimension.
One of my original songs titled “Sad Situation” states in one line: “I wake up in the morning what do I see? Open eyes, closed hearts, images is what I see.”
Let this not be us my friends. Let the words of our mouth and the meditation of our hearts be acceptable in the name of the Almighty.
Your teachings and attitude today is not about you but up-lifting our younger generation.
Yes! Our morals and conduct are important. God’s character is the source of all righteousness. Your teachings and attitude today is not about you but up-lifting our younger generation. Therefore it’s imperative to stand firm and do great deeds. By doing great deeds you will be transformed into “HIS” likeness.
The truth will not only reveal new aspects about God but it will also open new insights, wisdom and revelations about life, ourselves and others around us. The way you perceive things will change because the Creator changes all who choose to follow Him. This will happen. God’s word tells us there is more to just believing that God “is”.
Being comfortable or being complacent can be a major deception hence the reason we need to be careful about religion. Often times we misuse religion as a Band-Aid and can be far from walking in the integrity of Christ. We were born in sin, with the knowledge of the truth we as believers should be able to love, forgive and respect with abundance and openly without thought.
Jeremiah 18:15 says; some roads in this life lead people down paths that they may wish they had never taken. It is important to be careful of the path you take because you are the example others may follow.
In the end God is Pure in thought, intent, and motive.
Let that be us. HSFanga!
