Taking the Right action

“If you see a fellow believer sinning…you should pray, and God will give that person life.” 

You should pray.

You should pray.

You should pray.

Not…

Gossip about.

Question endlessly.

Question, at all.

PRAY!!!!

Intercessory Prayer, how important is it?

“All wicked actions are sin, but not every sin leads to death.”

 Procrastination, Lord?

Clutter and disarray?

Excess spending?

Stubbornness?

Impatience?

Anxiety that seeks affirmation from humanity and not You, Lord?

Taking a serious look at our sin, how important is it?

“We know that God’s children do not make a practice of sinning, for God’s Son holds them securely, and the evil one cannot touch them.”

 Cannot touch them??!

Really?!

Not through our work situations?

Not through our family and friends?

Not through divorce, or abandonment, or racial segregation?

Not through drug abuse, or gang violence, or human trafficking?

I don’t understand. Aren’t these the weapons of our enemy?

Wait! Is it possible we are doing this to ourselves?

Understanding what is our enemy’s fault and what is ours and can be remedied by us, how important is it?

“And we know that the Son of God has come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true God.” 

Have we not known You, Lord?

Have we thought we knew, when we didn’t?

Have we gotten lost in our wealth, social status, friendships, problems?

Have we sought instruction, or an intuitive word from You…

or have we all too quickly run to television, and the phone, and pornography, and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to get our needs met?

Have we thought, for even five seconds, that you gave Your everything to save us…

…from the influence of television, and the phone, and pornography, and Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram?

Examining the idols in our lives, how important is it?

“And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live in fellowship with His Son, Jesus Christ. He is the only true God, and he is eternal life.

 Dear children, keep away from ANYTHING that might take God’s PLACE in your hearts.”  -Scripture taken from 1 John 5:13-21

 To the Saver of our souls be all glory and honor and praise, forever! Amen!
