MORNINGTIME 2242
 
Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, HE CANNOT SEE the kingdom of God. John 3:3. I have some friends that KNOW they need to get right with the Lord, but that knowledge isn't enough to get them to stop their sinful lifestyle. They enjoy their sin more than they desire Christ. Yes, they do go to church and will tell you it was a good message by the preacher. They can even relate to the message and tell you the preacher was talking straight to them, that they need to get right with the Lord, and even that Christ is The Only Way. But they still want to live in their old lifestyle a little longer. They won't argue with or even talk badly about the Bible. They will acknowledge their sins, tell you that God is Merciful and Loving, and go right back to their sinful lifestyle as soon as you leave. Are they truly Christian? I don't know.  Their lifestyle seems to indicate they have a greater love for something more than they do for Christ. Will Christ play second fiddle to a love for something more than a love for Him? Not a chance. It all comes down to this for every man, woman, and child on the face of the earth. If Christ is your first, and only True Love, Repentance is a daily practice, and Obeying the Leading of the Holy Spirit is continuous, you're Heaven bound. If not, you're not. Yes, there is a learning curve, IF YOU HAVE A HEART FOR CHRIST AND HIS WAY. Once again, deception says, "Yes, I love the Lord, He is my Lord and Saviour", AND NEVER FOLLOW THROUGH WITH ANY ACTIONS TO MAKE THIS REAL. Talk is cheap and no action is even cheaper. Man is so good at deception, we can justify almost everything we do, and still say we love the lord, AND BELIEVE IT. Only when we compare us and our actions to the Word of God, can we truly see if we are Deceived or not. The Holy Spirit will reveal ALL, if we will ask Him to. It may not be pretty, but if we face The Truth, we WILL, Be Blessed.
