Life was never meant to be a game where we juggle our professional life, our family life, our Church life, our work life - as if they were independent of one another. The only life that glorifies God is the integrated life.
The unbelieving world - secular humanist - agnostics - atheist and - this is a hard saying, the lukewarm Christian - All want you and I to play their game and their game is - GOD IS NOT FIRST.
There's more that the worldly purport, like this.
- The things of God are not to be integrated into your life.
- You can juggle a little church with a little world.
- A little marriage with a little womanizing.
- A little Christianity with a little Eastern philosophy.
- A little G rated TV with a little ....
- A little integrity with a few bounced checks.
Go to God in your spirit and sense His acceptance of you.
This is cleansing and powerful.
Change your vision of God - close your eyes and see God in the inner man.
Think higher and loftier thoughts.
You can always tell when you are making headway with God.
As you get closer, God gets bigger.
As you know more, there's more still.
As you go deeper, deeper gets deeper.
As you draw closer, God pulls you even closer.
Make up your mind to put God-thinking into action. Force the things of God to the top of your thinking and push down all else. Some things need to be pushed so far down that they are pushed out altogether. To worship God in spirit and truth will require that your mind is engaged in the things of God.
