Worldly Addictions And Attachments Prevents Our Complete And Wholehearted Love, Devotion and Loyalty To Father YHVH. (1 John 2:15)
When We Become Too Attached To The Things, People, Pleasures, Accolades, Joys, Wealth, Honors, Praises, Careers, Family, Friends, Spouses, Children, Cars, Homes, Property, Credentials, Celebrity and Positions Of This Word, We Really Cannot Transition Well, If At All, From Sinner To Saint or From Earth To Eternal Life. (Matthew 10:37)
When we have given our “whole hearts” to our careers, children, spouses, institutional religions, fraternities, sororities, clubs, causes, politics, education, money, self-glorification and acquiring worldly successes and positions of honor, prestige, power and influence, then what “heart” are we speaking of when we say that we have given our whole heart to Jesus?
Furthermore, Christ is recorded as having said that, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21)
If our hearts be totally focused and devoted to earthly pursuits (Treasures) wherein we cannot give up the things of the world – including our fellowship with a church or pastor – for the pursuit of Christ, then we have made the things of the earth our god and our treasure and counted ourselves unworthy of Christ and the Kingdom of God. (Luke 18:29-30)
Perspectives and Priorities Need To be In Order For Every Saint For We may Be Called Into Account At The Drop of A Dime Or In The Twinkling of an Eye. (Luke 12:20 and 1 Corinthians 15:52)
YAHWEH Jealously watches over us and desires that HIS Children be where He is so as to enjoy what He has prepared and stored up for us. (John 14:3)
Every good Dad loves to give to His Children and it hurts him when his children prefer another to him and dismisses the preparations and sacrifices that he made just for them. (Luke 12:32 and 1 Corinthians 2:9)
FATHER YAHWEH DESERVES AND REQUIRES THAT HE BE THE ABSOLUTE PRIORITY IN OUR LIVES.
What, if anything or anybody, have you placed in the place of GOD?
GOD DESERVES ALL OF OUR LOVE, DEVOTION, COMMITMENT, LOYALTY, HONOR, GLORY and PRAISE! He Doesn’t deserve leftovers or second place.
Are you more in love with the things, people and relations of this world than you are with CHRIST?
