If there is one thing today’s Christianity is missing, the fear of God would have to be at the top of the list. One of the verses mentioned in this video is one that I have pondered for over the course of this year.
Pro 8:13 The fear of the LORD is to hate evil: pride, and arrogancy, and the evil way, and the froward mouth, do I hate.
Before I watched this video I used to asked myself, “How can the most perverse of minds and a hater of God, hate evil if he once loved evil?”. It dawned on me while watching this video that the god being preached is a god of only meekness and love; a description used by one of the preachers in the video which I can really wrap my head around is the description of God being a “grandfather”.
Expectations, heartbreak, the highs, the lows, humbling experiences, most importantly….lessons learnt. As the year draws near to the end, these words describe my entire year so far. Its been a while since my last post…haha its been forever. I have a few good reasons and a few poor excuses.
Poor excuses first; laziness. First lesson learnt this year. Just with university alone, I’ve learnt that laziness is very counter-productive (thank you captain obvious). The type of laziness I’m talking about is associated with the behaviour of procrastination. You could almost synonymously replace laziness with procrastination in my case. Although such lesson is useful when studying for a piece of paper that you receive after four years, it does not compare to the light bulb moment when applied to the scope of eternity.
I can see for the first time my weaknesses and limitations as a human being.
I’m not going to sit here rattling off thy righteous deeds I have done. Though if I were to, they would not be of my own will but of the Most Righteous One whom I know. Nothing I do will ever repay the debt I owe Him. All I can do is give Him all the glory. This post is addressed to those in faith for help or encouragement but all are welcomed to the table of the Lord. I do address repentance if you have not repented (have not submitted to the saving faith of Jesus Christ). But you must remember that to break an addiction you must submit to God through repentance. Grace is a free gift when you turn to God. God gives you this gift. However breaking free from addiction is not the problem, YOU ARE SET FREE WHEN YOU RECEIVE TRUTH. Truth which is Lord Jesus Christ. The problem many people have and I had is staying away from it. This is what I’ve learned and what has helped me.
