If God should transfer the role of convicting sinners from the Holy Spirit to Believers, many people would prefer to remain unbelievers. Christianity should be attractive. But even though the bible qualifies us to be the joy of many generations, many believers seem to be the reason for many people’s alienation. Prayer is good; but I sometimes feel that praying over certain issues is a sign of irresponsibility on our part. It’s amazing how many believers have become lazy about things they did easily while they were in the world. Did Christianity make them lazy?
Many of them even use “grace” as an umbrella. These days, when a neighbour or friend does better than a believer, his conclusion is “grace”. As much as God loves the fact that we reverence His power, He doesn’t want us to think like mediocres. “By strength shall no man prevail”, “It’s not by power nor might, but by the Spirit”; those two scriptures have really made some believers lazy. They think they don’t have to engage their strengths to do anything, as long as they have the Holy Spirit. My dear, use your physical strength, your academic strength, your career strength, your intellectual strength, your financial strength, your emotional strength; in fact, use all the strengths you have and make beauty out of the name of Christ. Enough is enough!
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; BUILD YOUR STRENGTHS. WE KNOW YOU CAN’T PREVAIL AGAINST THE DEVIL BY YOUR STRENGTHS, YOU NEED THE HOLY SPIRIT. BUT AFTER YOU PREVAIL, YOU NEED YOUR STRENGTHS TO CONTINUE LIVING. Have a most fruitful day, in Jesus precious name!
And hey, don’t forget to “like” it. And if you really like it, please share it!
