We talk about faith in Christ Jesus, what we can do with faith, how to put faith to work, how to build faith and how to grow in faith.....life testimonies , word of faith, biblical verse of faith.
And it is impossible to please God without faith...
I was out so early on Saturday morning for shopping.
I could have
driven my car, but I chose to take the bus.
I was at the bus stopfor several hours waiting for the bus.
Several buses had passed, but I was still waiting.
At last I decided to approach the bus chart to know if
any information was put on earlier about bus delay.
When I approached the board, I was shocked...
All the buses coming for the past hours were actually
going to the shopping mall, but because I was used to a particular bus number,
colour and direction which has been changed recently, I was waiting for long
for the bus that will not come.
This incidence touched me a lot, I learnt so much from
it and I will be sharing some of what I
learnt with you.
I call it over familiarity.
I have been so familiar with the bus number, type, colour
and direction that I missed several
buses because these things were changed.
So also sometimes we could be too familiar with Jesus
Christour heavenly father that we take
his instructions for granted.
We could also be too familiar with the Holy spirit that we
don't ask him for instructions anymore.
We could be too familiar with the bible, that we lose
the message God is passing to us.
Because we have read the bible more than 50 times, we
could get so familiar with the word of God that when others read, we don't listen.
We could be so familiar with our pastor that when God
speaks through Him, we take it as a man that is speaking.
It is more worse, if our pastor is our dad, mum or our
brother..we just say..isn't it my brother preaching..
This was exactly what happen to Jesus Christ in His
to his own people, and even they rejected him.
I know many would have been saying..Isn't that Jesus
the son of the carpenter..
Isn't that Jesus the son of Mary and Joseph.
By doing this, they miss outthe agenda of God for their life.
By doing this, they miss out of the great plan and
history which is to be writing about them.
I will like us to take some time off and think of which
area we have been so familiar with Jesus Christ and His doing that we don't
even see his magnanimity and sovereignty anymore.
We don't pray anymore because we thinkwe can pray anywhere.
We don't read our bible anymore..because we think we
have a soft copy on our tablets and phones.
Hasn't our over familiarity senses taken us far away from
We need to come close and see where we are now.
Let the first love be restored..
I have this complaint against you. You don't love me or each other as you did
Let us go back to our first lovefor Jesus Christ.
Let not be too familiar with Jesus Christ work and leading.
If these words touches your life, and you will like to
accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and personal savior or renew your faith in him. It is simple. Pray a
prayer of forgiveness. Acknowledge you are a sinner,ask Jesus Christ to forgive you all your
sins. Call Jesus Christ to fill your heart . If you do this you are save, just
look for a church of God around you to join, so as to improve your faith
in Christ. Do not forget to read your bible day in and out.
