Many people just follow the crowd without much thought into it. That is dangerous. Jesus said He is the Way. He is the only way. He teaches truth. It is not always popular, but truth is beautiful. There is no other choice. If you don’t believe all that Jesus teaches you are in danger of soul. There are beliefs flooding most churches today that are lies. We all have blind spots that we need to pray that God will open our eyes to. Satan is working overtime, deceiving people that you can serve mammon and God. That you can serve two masters. Jesus warns us against this. We have to remember God is a very jealous God.
Too many people think you can have it both ways. Being part of the world and still be a Christian. That is being lukewarm. And God says He will spew us out of His mouth if we are lukewarm. A follower of Jesus is to be pure of heart, humble and faithful to His word. Not only some if it and then toss out the rest that you don’t want to hear.
We are in dangerous time. Satan wants your soul, so guard it with your life by the power of God. He will look after you, but you have to serve Him faithfully. There is so much deception, if it is an easy way out that should make you alert that there could be something wrong with the message. To follow Jesus is the hard and narrow road, not the easy wide road that MOST people follow.
Beliefs for too many people are just like fashion, whatever is the flavour of the month they follow. God doesn’t change. The truth doesn’t change from year to the next. The truth is always the truth for ever it will be the same. What you believe in, backed by action will either sentence you to heaven or hell. So beliefs are very important. Call on God for wisdom, understanding and knowledge, to face your daily decisions. None of us know it all and we all can be deceived if we set our guards down. And judge everything at face value can be deceiving.
Pray for the Holy Spirit to fill you and guide you in everything you do. Jesus shows us the way. Be wary of popular beliefs, it might sound good, but look much deeper with the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit will open your eyes and you will see things that the majority won’t see. You have to put God first! in your life, or you will fall and be deceived.
