How Devoted Are You To Your Faith
I’m beginning to realize more and more each day why it is so important for Christians to spread the gospel and why God says it’s so important to do it. I find myself ministering more to Christians who don’t really know what God expects of them. The simple stuff that I thought all Christians knew, I am now finding out that not every Christian knows them. Like the fact that you must forgive others for doing you wrong in order for God to forgive you when you ask Him to forgive you for your wrong-doing. I thought every Christian knew this, but I found out in several conversations that not every Christian is aware of this. And another one is about prayer. I thought every Christian knew that you have to have faith in God to answer what you are praying about, and you can’t be sinning in the process of praying, and if you have sinned, you have to ask God for forgiveness and try to clean up your life because God answers the prayers of the righteous. You also have to be patient and never lose faith because God may answer it the next day or the next year. It all depends on when God thinks it’s the perfect time to do it. And lastly, if He doesn’t answer the prayer He will give you a clear reason why by speaking to you through the holy spirit. There are a lot of things God wants us to be aware of and a lot of things that He expects of us and a lot of Christians and non-believers alike don’t know about them and some don’t understand them. I mean, its not hidden. It’s publicly displayed in the bible for all to see. I understand if you read the bible and don’t understand it and you need someone to help you by explaining certain things, but if you don’t even pick up the bible and put a honest effort in strengthening your faith, then I don’t understand why you would blame God or others for you life being a mess. This world seriously need the Word of God kept on their minds. This is why it is so important for devout Christ-Followers who are established in their faith to help these people out. This is the main reason why God said we have to spread the gospel (and yes He commands us to do it.)This world is lacking the simple knowledge that God wants us all to know and abide by. I have learned while ministering to others that some Christians are very passive and laid-back in their faith and it’s only when they are in a emotional crisis or a low point in life, that they really listen to you and take in the spiritual knowledge God wants them to have. So my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, we have a lot of work to do.
