In a world full of the distractions, how is the Christian suppose to function effectively? This is a very important question and one that we all need to understand. You see Christianity is so different from the other religions out there, in that our salvation is not based on our efforts and what we do, it is based on what God did. This is why God has not left us powerless but he has given us his Holy Spirit to guide us through our journey of life and it is the Holy Spirit that enables us to function.
Joh 14:16 I will ask the Father to give you another Helper, to be with you always.
Joh 14:17 He is the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor recognizes him. But you recognize him, because he lives with you and will be in you.
This is the strength of our Christianity, the third person of the trinity, you see it was the love of the Father that got us started, it was the sacrifice of the Son that got us saved and it is the empowerment of the Holy Spirit that keeps us going.
Even when we are challenged and we do not know what to say, the Holy Spirit will give us the words.
Luk 12:11 When people bring you before synagogue leaders, rulers, or authorities, don’t worry about how you will defend yourselves or what you will say,
Luk 12:12 because at that time the Holy Spirit will teach you what you are to say.”
A lot of the time, because we do not truly submit our whole lives to God, we make things harder for ourselves. It does not matter how much church work we do, that is not totally surrendering to God, it is just activity.
God has given us an infallible defence mechanism against the enemy and that is total surrender of our lives to him:
Jas 4:6 But he gives all the more grace. And so he says,
“God opposes the arrogant
but gives grace to the humble.”
Jas 4:7 ¶ Therefore, submit yourselves to God. Resist the devil, and he will run away from you.
Jas 4:8 Come close to God, and he will come close to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you double-minded.
Ego will stop us from totally surrendering your life to God and when that happens the Holy Spirit cannot work in our lives.
The world will throw all kinds of things at us to try and get us to doubt God and his ability to bring us through. It will try and substitue God with a worldly solution. However God says for those people who are willing to walk by faith and not by sight, they will see his wonders!
2Co 5:4 So while we are still in this tent, we sigh under our burdens, because we do not want to put it off but to put it on, so that our dying bodies may be swallowed up by life.
2Co 5:5 God has prepared us for this and has given us his Spirit as a guarantee.
2Co 5:6 ¶ Therefore, we are always confident, and we know that as long as we are at home in this body we are away from the Lord.
2Co 5:7 For we live by faith, not by sight.
2Co 5:8 We are confident, then, and would prefer to be away from this body and to live with the Lord.
2Co 5:9 So whether we are at home or away from home, our goal is to be pleasing to him.
The reason why a true Christian cannot sin and be comfortable is because of the Holy Spirit and the conviction he gives, which causes us to have Godly Sorrow (2Corintians 7:10) So not only does he give us the power the resist the devil, he also gives us the power to live a life of repentence.
We are powerless without the Holy Spirit, so every morning welcome him into your life and ask him to take control. Now is not the time to be proud, now is the time to be guided!
In our Reliv businesses we have to humble ourselves enough to be guided by the system and follow all of the 7 elelments.
Proud people ever make it but they will make excuses. The system is not a guarentee to your success but if a person is working their business correctly, it is a road map which leads to success.
It stops you from being distracted and it keeps you connected, so that your wall of belief can be strong.
Seeing your future before it happens is what the system allows you to do.
Now is not the time to be proud, it is the time to be guided!
