I have been reading Philippians, it was probably written from Rome by Paul, the apostle. It is said that the Phillippian church was an ideal one, that it was “appreciative and benevolant.”
Today’s church is so different from what God wanted. Many pastors are not speaking the full truth. They are changing the meaning of what is written and allowing the church to be socially acceptable rather than teach how to live in today’s world and still keep to the values, teachings, commandments that God expects His people to live by….no matter what is going on.
We live in a time where it is becoming more and more important to ask questions, fact find, pursue the desire that God has put in each of our hearts. “What is it that God would want me to do?” Should be what we ask ourselves and God, daily!
Philippians 3:13 “Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do:forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead. I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”
Yes, pressing in and onward, I want to win the race. There is a race, we as Christians not only run toward spiritual desires and ambition but we have a race to pursue the lost.
We can no longer sit on the sidelines. We can no longer say, “not me, I can’t do that.” We must equip ourselves and pursue the lost. We must pray for God to lead and direct our steps.
God’s Word is alive, it is for us to use daily. Daily, we must be reading scripture and be praying for God’s guidance.
He is calling each of us to do our part! Step out, kneel down and let God work thru you.
