Verse of the day
“For it is God’s will that by doing good you should silence the
ignorant talk of foolish men. Live as free men, but do not use your
freedom as a cover-up for evil; live as servants of God.”- 1 Peter
Most of my life, I have lived following Christ. Again as I stated
before, I have never had anything to drink or smoke ever. So there
were times especially during my college years where I was considered
by friends as “Mr. Goody” or something because I wouldn’t walk on the
edge like some of them did. Some of them would always say to me that
God wouldn’t punish me for do something wrong. I even had a
girlfriend at that time who would always say to me that she was going
to slip some alcohol in something that I had because I didn’t want to
drink. I never liked getting in trouble or having to deal with the
consequences because I saw others go through it and I was always
scared of the Lord.
Living as a servant is a lifestyle, and something that you can turn
on and off. It is also a decision that you have to be committed to
and trust me if you are committed to God then He is truly going to be
Faithful to you. As a result of my decision God has come through in
some of the most frustrated times of my life. He has made me an
overcomer so many times that I am convinced, truly that nothing can
separate me from the love of God.
I can truly say that living as a servant of God, while it may not
always be easy, is well worth it. Through Christ I have experienced
many ups and downs, however I can say that it is only through Christ
that I went through those times and truly experienced Victory.
There are a lot wolves in sheep’s clothing in the world and we have
to be careful with whom we allow to be in our space. As believers you
have to make sure that you are not one of those people. Live life to
the fullest and live free, the only condition is that the only way to
do that is through Christ.
