Robbing God of our Opportunities?

Some tough questions to make sure your church is aligned up to His true Truths and principles:

“Going on from that place, he went into their synagogue,…” Matthew 12: 9-21

What can you do to prevent robbing yourself of the opportunities God gives you?

Jesus went into their… church, what if it was your church?

To the Pharisees, Jesus robbed their bank and stole their possessions. To a point, He did, as He took away their presumptions and false ideas, and replaced them with the Truth and the true intention God had for them (Hos. 6:6; Micah 6:6-8). They did not want the Truth or what God had for them; they only wanted their postulations and their power to rule.

This brings us to, He went into our church…. Thus, the questions we have to ask ourselves are,

“Are we robbing God of the opportunities He tries to give us?”

“Do we mix them up with habits, pride and traditions?”

“Do we make grandstanding pretenses, showing off our faith while we have a heart full of soot?”

Do our passions line up with political agendas, or the precepts of His Word?”

Passion is paramount, but it has to be grounded in God’s Truth, not the ideas and desires of man. Seek initiative and inspirations from Christ, not from the traditions. Do not filter your faith and practice through the filter of traditions or habits. Rather, filter through the clarity of God’s Word!

As A leader in God’s House, what blocks Christ’s work in me from working and being exhibited in me?

We have been saved, not of any effort or reason on our part except by faith, so now what do we do with it? What do we do with it as a leader in God’s House? We are to take it to the streets in how we live to ourselves, others and even our enemies. Yet, most Christians, even us leaders, respond with a rear end firmly planted in a pulpit that goes nowhere in real effectual service or glory to Christ. Many of us hold on to a will that will not allow conviction or change in the routine or life. Thus, the church is just a club for comfort and not a “huddle” to strategize and put forward how to play the game of Christian life from receiving our orders from the Coach.

The questions we have to ask ourselves, are we ignoring our Lord? “Are we robbing God of the opportunities He tries to give us?”

“Do we mix them up with habits, pride and traditions?”  “Do we make grandstanding pretenses, showing off our faith while we have a heart full of soot?”  “Do our passions line up with political agendas, or the precepts of His Word?” Passion is paramount, but it has to be grounded in God’s Truth, not the ideas and desires of man. Seek initiative and inspirations from Christ, not from the traditions. Do not filter your faith and practice through the filter of traditions or habits. Rather, filter through the clarity of God’s Word!

Who is Jesus to you? What have you done with this knowledge? Do you see, feel, and know His Divine Fullness?
