“Friends, Is Your Heart Right Before God, Today?”

4 06 2011

Greetings I bring to you my dear friends in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ Our Redeemer.  Dear friends,as we take a look at today’s topic entitled “Is Your Heart Right Before God Today?” Friends, many of us as believers should ask this question to ourselves. Let us see what the word of God has to say to us today. Please do read the rest of the article.

Dearly beloved friends, as we take a look at the above title why does the word of God says that we as believers need to be right before God? As we take a look at the New Testament in the gospel of St Matthew  7:21-23 as it is written,“Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven;  but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name?  and in thy name have cast out devils?  and in thy name done many wonderful works?  And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you:  depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”

Dear friends, as we take a look at the above paragraph, God clearly says that he never knew some of us believers although some of us who are believers are doing God’s ministry. have we ever asked ourselves this question? In today’s present world we see that there are so many servants of God doing the Lord’s ministry. Some even casts out demons, they prophesy in the name of the Lord, they do miracles in the name of Jesus Christ and also perform miraculous healing! And yet the Lord says that he never knew any of them. They were all servants of God weren’t they? Then why does God deny them? The reason is because their hearts were not right before God at all.

Dear friends, as believers we must understand that whatever we ask in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ as believers we will receive it. Remember that we are God’s vessels use for His ministry. But is our hearts really right before God? Today, there are many servants of God who have back slide in their ministry. I use the term “their” instead of “God’s ministry.” Many of them think it as their ministry and not the Lord’s ministry. They become so puffed up when they see that people are running after them and not God. All glory should be given to God and not to these servants of God. In this present world we see people going to church for the pastors and not for God. If the pastor is unable to attend church for that week we see that certain people are not in church.

Dear friends, in whatever we do today as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ do it all for the glory of God. All honor and praises are to be given to God. Remember what happen to Lucifer? Why did God cast him out from heaven? It was because Lucifer wanted all the glory that was given to God by the heavenly angels to be given to him. Lucifer wanted the angels to bow before him and worship him instead of God. He was so proud and boastful of himself. Mind you my friends, he was the most beautiful angel in heaven. Lucifer’s heart was not right before God and God knew it. So God cast him out of heaven. If God can cast Lucifer out of heaven, how about us believers? Our hearts must be right before God, today.Friends, all of us as believers must be right before God in whatever we do. Remember we can do miraculous healing, but the Lord said when that day comes God will say that “He Never Knew Us.” Be Blessed and Stay Blessed.

God Bless.
