God is moved when His people write more bad checks than the world.
God is moved when His children spend more of their money on entertainment than they do in helping the church reach the lost.
God is moved when His own people deny Him His rightful place in their lives.
God is moved when His people cheat and lie and steal.
Why bring up all these depressing things?
Today, too many people represent the work that Christ does in us as pitiful, powerless, weak, impotent, and insignificant.
They claim Christ, but not the work that Christ does in them.
They claim to be a new creation, that just happens to enjoy all the same old habits as before.
They claim that Jesus is Lord...but...
Jesus said in Luke 6:46 “And why call ye Me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?”
The Holy Spirit reminds the believer that Jesus is Lord and to be worshiped and adored. The Holy Spirit brings to our attention that we are Ambassadors of Christ and as Ambassadors we have a responsibility to accurately represent Him to a lost and dying world."
