What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and yet lose his soul. In today’s society everything is about fame, fortune and prestige. Very few people stop and sit back and think about the God of Heaven. The Creator who woke them up to see another day, or His Son Jesus Christ who died on the cross so that our sins might be forgiven.
We live in a time when our phones, television and social media have become more important than the Bible or Christ himself. As we look around in many of our churches today, the number of people carrying their physical Bibles are significantly decreasing compared to those who are carrying their phones to replace their Bibles.
We live in a society where we want everything quick and in a hurry. We want to get rich quick and in a hurry. We want to get a house and a car quick and in a hurry. We want to get married quick and in a hurry. The same way we want to get out of church, prayer and bible study quick and in a hurry.
Rather than depending and trusting the Lord for what we need. Many people today are taking things into their own hands by using ulterior sources in order to gain success or the materials of life. Many are taking their “Own Destiny’s” into their own hands. A lot of us are not waiting upon the Lord as the bible instructs us to do.
Most people are not even thinking about the Lord unless we come up against some great life-threatening situation or experience. The bible tells us to seek the Lord while he can still be found. There is a set of people who do not even believe in God, much less His Son Jesus Christ. Waiting upon the Lord is definitely not in their vocabulary.
We have so many people who are easily and rapidly falling for the enemy’s schemes and lies, only to later come up burnt and empty if they happen to survive. Many do not realize that neither fame, fortune or prestige cannot save us. I’m not saying that there is anything wrong with being wealthy or successful. However, if one is not using God-given methods, it’s clearly a waste of time.
The enemy never does anything for free. It is going to cost you something. The question is…What or who? There is always an exchange. Like it or not, One day is payday. However, there is a gift that has been given to us free of charge. That gift is salvation. Jesus died for our sins. Our sin-debts have been paid in full by His sacrifice made on our behalves. it doesn’t us cost anything. All you have to do is just accept and receive it freely through Christ Jesus.
What greater gift is there than one that has been fully paid. Won’t you receive Him. There is no greater gift than the gift of life that comes from God through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
