Before service there has to be consecration. How can we influence darkness unless we’re in the light?
God loves you. Don’t disappoint him with bad character and lifestyle.
Sometimes it has to get worse before it gets better. But it will only improve if we repent, put things right and move in a new direction. It won’t just happen simply because the situation has deteriorated.
When we go our own way, we reap what we sow. This applies to believers as well, so there’s no room for complacency or smugness. Life not what it should be? Do a reality check.
When we truly open ourselves up to God there is a change in our thinking and the way we live our lives. That’s how we can tell whether someone has religion or relationship.
There is a difference between having empty religion and having a relationship with God. It’s easy to tell who has what, even amongst people that go to church every week.
