God thinking LXII - You Have Got To Figure It Out 3

"Too many Christians are willing to ignore the lure of the world.

Too many Christians are willing to ignore the signs of the times.
They paint their own picture of the way things are and the way things should be:
  • without consultation from wise counsel
  • without instruction from scripture
  • without prayerfully considering the results of their actions
  • without recognition of God’s Sovereignty.
To say that you believe that God is sovereign, and live like He is distant and unconcerned, is hypocrisy.

Jesus didn’t think much of hypocrisy during His earthly ministry and He doesn’t think much of hypocrisy right now.

You need to kick out that old kind of thinking, that says, just because you cannot live a sinless life, like Jesus Christ did, that somehow that equates to your having no ability or power at all.

That since you have fallen short in times past, you must constantly, and without refrain, continue to fall prey to the ploys of your enemy.

You have been empowered by the indwelling Holy Spirit to overcome the world, not succumb to the world.
