As you well know, I have not written in ages, and I apologize for that. I have been busy with the holidays, visiting family, and finally discovering the gender of our little lemon drop!!! The baby is a healthy girl!!!! We are also undergoing difficulties with our home so pray that all will be well with the Lemons.
I have recently realized, with the help from my husband, that no Christians seem to know the times that we live in. No, we are not in the tribulation or the 1000 year reign of Jesus Christ, but we are in end times. As christians we would love to see everyone give their life over to God, but that is just not going to happen. That is not what the Bible says, therefore, sadly, it is not going to occur. Look around you, we are told that good is evil and that evil is good. Most unbelievers do not like Christians because the christians that do make it on the news or are talked about in social media are not true followers of Christ. They call themselves radical, but they are, to be honest, selfish. These people care more about their own feelings then honoring the Lord. Christians are to love their neighbor as much as they love themselves (Matthew 19:19). Now, do you see this in the world today??? Think about it for a second……………………. No, you see people either accepting the gay or transgender community or outright hating them. As christians, we are not to accept that lifestyle, but we are to love them and tell them about Jesus. I wanted to speak of this to leave you with some food for thought. I do not care if the world hates me or rejects me. Honestly, I rather be rejected by the world then by God.
As we enter this new year tomorrow think about what your doing for the Lord. Yes, we desire a revival within this world, but that revival begins in our hearts as the Holy Spirit convicts us to live unto the Lord. So, in all your might, escape from your sins. If you struggle with lust, find a woman, or man, and date in public settings and strive for marriage. God tells us to get married so we can escape that burning desire. If you just don’t understand your role as a biblical woman or man get into your Bible and learn!! Strive to read the entire Bible this year so, as a christian, you know where you stand. If you are a teenager, honor thy father and mother (Matt. 19:19).
The word gluttonous is in the Bible as well. It means, excessively greedy. Proverbs 23:20 states, ” Be not among drunkards or among gluttonous eaters of meat”. In the new year, strive to eat to fuel your body, not for pleasure. Don’t sit around eating chips ALL day or candy. Get up and make a healthy meal. Go outside or to the gym instead of idling at home. “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God” (Matt. 4:4).
I urge you not to just read this and go about your normal day, but instead, let these words, given to me through God, convict you to change your life. Even if your are living for the Lord, strive to do better. Always strive to do more and be better for the Lord. Never stop growing.
I will be posting weekly due to my schedule. Plus, it gives me time to prepare a post that really does mean something and is not just featuring me rambling on.
