I saw that the Church of God today is full of a lot of confused Christians, and I discovered that the major backbone of this confusion is the fact that they haven’t lost everything yet. Jesus said “whosoever desires to save his life will lose it but whosoever loses his life for My sake shall find it”, what Jesus meant by “losing your life” is not just about dying physically, it involves losing everything you are, and everything you have to gain Christ and God’s Kingdom…I am not saying you should go bankruptcy but I’m saying even if you have a million dollar in your bank account, you do not see yourself as the owner but see the Lord as the owner. I am talking about handing over all that you have and have achieved in this world to the Lord and you choosing to live the LIFE that Christ will give you and not the life you want for yourself.
Today, we have Christians who are finding it difficult to accept the Will of God for their lives because they are still entangled with the things of this world, they are not willing to let go of the world and are also not willing to let go of Jesus, So, they are seriously confused. Some of you are in a wrong relationship and you know that this relationship is not according to the will of God but because you “love” the person so much, you decided to keep the relationship while your personal relationship with God is suffering—And you keep asking pastors to pray for your relationship…I began to wonder, how will God bless something that is against His will?! Therefore, I discovered that a believer is not likely to be confused in making good Kingdom decisions if he or she has nothing to lose, some of you are so afraid today because you believe you have a lot to lose if things doesn’t go well with you—If you are like this, you can’t go far with God, and God can’t entrust you with serious assignments of the Kingdom.
I learnt that there are certain secret government organizations who when they employ soldiers, they will completely wipe out the entire human history and connection these soldiers have with the outside world, some of these soldiers would even be framed as dead in the public so that they have no life to live for themselves anymore and must now live all their lives for the secret organization—The same applies with God’s Kingdom. If you really want God’s Kingdom, you must break ties with everything in this world that is pulling you back into worldliness, I have seen people who resigned from a well paying job because that job is contrary to the will of God for them. Today’s Christians are too ambitious for God to use. Somebody said “I can’t stop doing this thing until God tells me to stop” and I just laughed, I laughed because God will hardly tell you to lay down something you haven’t laid down already, the reason why the Holy Spirit will never tell some of you to give is because you have not yet handed over everything you have to the Lord.
IT’S SO EASY FOR THE SPIRIT OF GOD TO LEAD YOU WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO LOSE THAN WHEN YOU ALREADY HAVE TOO MUCH TO LOSE!!
THE REASON WHY SOME OF YOU CAN’T GET A CLEAR VISION OR REVELATION OR DIRECTION OF GOD’S WILL AND PURPOSE FOR YOUR LIFE IS BECAUSE YOU ARE SO FULL OF SELF AMBITIONS AND WORLDLY DESIRES…Until you lose everything to Jesus, confusion will never cease in your life!!! Be Wise!!!! Amen.
