John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
You have heard it called the crossroads, the fork in the road. There comes a time and place where accountability seems to finally catch up with you. My choices before this point had boiled down to either becoming accountable and responsible for the decisions I was making, or the inevitable repercussions of my choices where to hold me accountable soon enough.
The truth of the matter, you may get away with sin for a season, but your sins will always find you out eventually. There is no hiding from God.
John 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Jesus is the light, the bread of life and the living water. His words are the words of eternal life. I have to admit that before knowing the holy spirit I previously had read similair statements and I had chalked it up to pretty sounding religious talk. Strange enough as I ponder my excuses for not being “religious” they were due to the hypocrisy I felt was common in church.
Psalms 18:30 As for God, his way is perfect! The word of the Lord is tested and tried; He is a shield to all those who take refuge and put their trust in him.
My life was was spent in a glass house. As I look back I realize how decieved I truly was. Yet I felt that I was qualified to pick up rocks and throw them at the people who called themselves Christians. I constantly judged others to a standard that I had never attempted to keep myself. I cast down my opinions before I would look in the mirror. The enemy is the author of confusion. He so often gets us to believe lies and we become quick to cast judgement on others. Truth and Light. The truth can not reside where darkness lives, nor can light exist where truth does not take refuge.
Revelation 2:5 Remember then from what heights you have fallen. Repent and do the works you did previously or else I will visit you and remove your lampstand from its place, unless you change your mind and repent.
Your attitude will determine your destiny. The crossroads mentioned earlier signifies one of two choices. The first being the moment you choose to stand up and become accountable for what you commit your life to represent. Then there is the sad and all too often path chosen the majority of people these days, they keep acting like children being controlled by their emotions and searching for whoever they can manipulate to take care of their daily needs.
The time for accountability is upon us, God has heavily placed on my spirit that he has dealt with people privately, he will soon deal with them publicly. What is done in secret will always be brought to light.
Repentance is a more than being sorry for knowing you got caught or did something wrong. Repentance is a distinct turning away from one’s sins. If you burn a bridge that means there is not a way to walk back across it.
In life you must make choices, the condition of your life is always a direct result of the choices you are making when nobody is looking. While I do believe there are tragic unexplainable events that happen, you still will always have a choice afterwards. Your choice after tragedy is, do you get back up and fight another day or do you just lie down and except defeat one day closer to death at a time? Yet you say Branson, you just do not understand how unfair my life is. And I would say your probably right, but I know someone you can ask and he was nailed to an old wooden cross, for a planet full of people who more often than not mock his sacrifice with the choices they continue to make with their lives.
Being a Christian is more than a sticker of a fish on your car. Being a Christian means being Christ-Like in all you think, say, and do. For God see’s the condition of the heart of man.
Romans 3:23 For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
