A Change From within
If you are under the sound of my voice right now, just know your light has come and your life will never be the same
Without wasting much of your time, let us read the word.
_Romans 2:21-22 (ESV)_
21 you then who teach others, do you not teach yourself? While you preach against stealing, do you steal? 22 You who say that one must not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? You who abhor idols, do you rob temples?
Many times, we fail to affect others because we ourselves have not been affected - you cannot give that which you do not have.
The Spirit of the Lord that does not have any effect in us, cannot have an effect in those people around us - change must start from within ourselves.
Paul was actually surprised, he saw what was not supposed to be among preachers and teachers. You must carefully look at those you are following and see to it that they a good example to follow.
Paul Said in 1 Corinthians 11:1, _follow me as I follow the example of Jesus_,
A leader does not say, do as I say - he says, do as I do.
We do not follow someone just because he says it - follow doers of the word, this world is now full of Hippocrates. Be smart.
When we read Matthews 7:22, we learn that Jesus knows us not by teaching and preaching the word or doing the miraculous - doing the word is what identifies us with Christ.
Take your time today and vet your life - ask yourself questions - how am I living? Am I doing the word?, Who am I following? Am I following Jesus in men or a man in an earthly vessel?
God bless you as you reflect on the questions today - till next time, walk in the light you see.
