God verses our gods

We live in such a rampant society filled with meaningless things that become an idol to us and distract us away from God and the things he has planned for us. Everywhere we go we are blasted with our most favorite interests; either it be football; baseball; or the new album by our most favorite bands. How often will we miss church and worship time with God just to see the Detroit lions lose once again (sorry Detroit fans haha). How often will we not attend midweek service because it is too cold out or our favorite show is on. How often will I stay up playing that new video game when God is telling me to spend time with him. How often will you or I spend 20 dollars for that extra bottle of wine but not pay the tab of the seemingly poorer person in line behind us who is fumbling through their last penny. 

Anything that we decide to serve or do over the will and love of God is serving another god; our own selfish desires. We are the body of Christ; the church. Each member of the church or us, the people have different roles to play. Some of us are called to be the arms of Christ to reach out to the poor and homeless while others are called to teach and others to heal. Why are the homeless not being helped to the capacity that they should be? Why do we have sick in the streets and why are small amount of christians; dare I say it;  illiterate in the knowledge of Gods word- the bible. Why is no one teaching the word of God anymore? Of course these questions are rhetorical but, the point remains. 

Now, I do not want to sound like a downer; many of us are serving God in the greatest capacity that we can. What I am simply trying to say or do is to bring attention to serving Gods will above what our desires are. Maybe the lions will be super bowl champions; maybe not; but do not let football or whatever society feeds us distract us from the will of God and become idols within our own lives. God is great and magnificent and deserves to be praised in all areas of our life; in the grocery store, watching the lions lose and not swearing at the television and also in our churches, God alone needs to glorified. 

 

Sincerely I do hope the lions win because I’m from Michigan

Don’t let your dreams die

What happened to our dreams? You know; before the world and sin led us astray. I think the dream is still there, just being pushed down and silenced by the ways of the world. So pushed down and silenced that we think the dream is dead.

Don’t let your dreams die. Don’t let the devil carry you so far from the cross that you give up on the dreams God has given you. The dream God has given you are still there. It is still very alive; you just have to pursue it! You don’t have to live in defeat in your christian journey. Flee from sin and cling to the cross! Flee from it all until your free from it all!

The devil just wants to hold you hostage and in chains which keeps you from pursuing what God has instilled in your soul. Your alive still for a reason; which means God still has a use for you. God is the author of life and death am I right? So if he is keeping you alive that means he still has a purpose for you; a dream for you to fulfil. Cry out to Jesus! The chain breaker; if God has called you to it then he will bring you through it ONLY if you let him. God has given us a freewill; and a choice. We can either serve him or not. Don’t sell yourself short. If God has called you to it he will make a way! God wouldn’t tell you “son; daughter I’m calling you to do this great task” and not give you the ability to do it! Keep the faith! Can I get an amen?
