SELAH Daily Devotions!
Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communication has light with darkness? And what accord has CHRIST with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? And what agreement has the temple of GOD with idols? For you are the temple of THE LIVING GOD. As GOD has said: “I WILL dwell in them And walk among them. I WILL be their GOD, And they SHALL BE MY PEOPLE.”
2 Corinthians 6:14-16
While few would disagree that segregation goes against the very essence of Christianity, there are certain circumstances where The Word of God embraces separation and it has absolutely nothing to do with the hue of your skin, the texture of your hair, the thickness of your lips nor the shape and size of your nose! HENCE, IT’S NOT A SKIN THING; IT’S A SIN THING!
We’re living in a space in time where the focus is no longer on living our lives faithfully obedient to the THE SPIRIT OF THE WORD, but how to make the WORD more accommodating, palatable, convenient and comforting to the masses in an effort to promote and fulfill our personal agenda rather than conforming to THE SOVEREIGN WILL OF OUR CREATOR! UUUMMMM??? Could this mentality BE the reason that sinners resist and so easily dismiss the relevancy of THE GOSPEL of JESUS CHRIST? #ijs?
TRUTHBETOLD, IT’S CONFUSING, even for some of us seasoned soldiers of The Faith! Don’t shout me down nah! Perhaps, we’d see more true conversions than compromise in The Kingdom if our VIDEOS aligned with our AUDIOS! ‘Cuse my folly; guess I jus used one of my senior tokens, huh?
Jus glad I can remember when the ol’ Preachas taught that there was a difference between clean and unclean and saved and unsaved? They stood unapologetically proclaiming that if we were willing to surrender ALL our hearts, open our minds, spirits and our body to HIS WILL, God would provide enuff Grace and Mercy to live our everyday lives in such a way that their godliness would invoke the sinner to envy the righteousness, peace and joy (ZOE) that’s available to every believer through their personal relationship with The Savior and Lord Jesus Christ! #SERIOUSLY! THEY DID!
Remember, ‘Bacndaday’ the Ol’ Skool Mothers testified, encouraging the saints that instead of being content with jus having a CRUSH on Christ to FALL DEEPLY in LOVE with JESUS? #WOW! And we didn’t get offended and cuss ’em out or threaten to leave the churrch! SHO NUFF! Well?
UR RIGHT, TIMES HAVE CHANGED! HOWEVRRRR, TRUST2KNO, GOD’S STILL LOOKING 4 THE SAME THING TODAY!
But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth. John 4:23-24
DIDJAKNO? Intentionally or NOT, WE ALL LIVE WHAT WE BELIEVE! #ijs!
Pause, Ponder, Pray & Praiz!
