“Follow Me Not The World”

17 01 2012

Greetings I bring to you my beloved friends around the globe in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. My prayer for you today my friends is that we shall not be blinded by the things that we see in this present world. I pray that what ever we do we will be Christ like in all things that we do. Let us not be so focus on the world that we totally forget to know that we are children who belong to God. Do take time to read the rest of the article. Be Blessed and Stay Blessed always.

Today as I sat in the kitchen to have my breakfast with my son Aaron, we both had a good conversation on the topic above. In today’s world we see that so many people rather Follow the world rather than to Follow Jesus! It is the same with believers and those who do not know God. We tend to follow so much of the lifestyle of the world. It is the world first then only Jesus Christ. We tend to become more worldly and less Christlike in everything that we do, don’t we? Many of us are less likely to Follow Jesus Christ but we are ever ready to Follow the world and all that is in it!

Dearly beloved friends, let us just take a few examples to see how worldly and Christlike are we in this present situation. I bet we are all into it including me too my friends. Anyway no one is perfect right! First and foremost let us see what are the things in the world that take most of our time off with God? For instance we all have Face Book and I too do have including both my children. Take a survey by yourself and see the amount of time we spend on Face booking! We can in fact sit there for hours and spend our time without feeling tired at all. We really enjoy chatting with our Face book friends around the world talking about the worldly things and also playing games such as Farm ville and many more games on Face book. But, but do we spend that much of time with God and His word? Even if it was for even 10 minutes, you will feel it is such a long time. Even in church we can find people sleeping when the sermon is being preached but they can spend a lot of time in front of the television following the series every week by week! Friends, imagine every week we follow the series and mind you it will make us all weak in our spirit, soul and body in no time. So, see how we are so into the world my friends. I am not being a fanatic telling you that you must only be 24/7 on the word of God always but to show you how we are so much in the world rather than with God. Think about it!

Another example, me and my son was talking about was how we adore the heroes and the heroines in the movie. Some of us has taken them to be as our mentor. We follow whatever they do. How they dress and how they talk. We adore them so much that we even change our hairstyles and our lifestyles to be like them. Remember they are only actors and actresses on stage putting up a play. They are not what they are in real life. They are only actors and their work is to act according to the role given and they get paid in such large amounts. Are they giving you anything of what they have earned? And we believers have adored them so much. We tend to make them as idols in our life. Have we as believers adored Jesus Christ that much? Has Jesus Christ been your mentor or as an example to you? See where is our Heart today? In Jesus Christ when you Follow Him today there is Salvation. You have Deliverance and Healing. Jesus Christ provides you  everything and no good things does he with hold from those who love him. But we tend to think twice about truly Following Jesus Christ when everything is Free and you do not have to pay a single penny for it! To many of us, the world comes first in our life than only God. Think about it my friends!

There are many more examples that I do have but let me bring you this one last example before I end my article. For instance, when we leave home without our hand phones we tend to make a U turn back just to go and get our hand phones. Just to turn the scenario back, what if that is a Sunday service and in a hurry you forgot to take your Bible to church? Honestly most of us would not go back to take the Bible. We never want to make a U turn for God even if God allows you a U Turn in your life! See, this is what I meant my beloved friends. We are so much into the world that we rather Follow the world rather than to Follow God. Today Jesus Christ is still sending us the same invitation that he gave Philip who became his disciple to Follow Him! Today are You going to Follow Jesus Christ or are You going to Follow the World? The choice is in your hands Today! You are the deciding factor my friends.

God Bless
