“The Devils number one tool is not an active sinner but an inactive Christian.”- Walk Thru The Bible Ministries
This is by far one of the best quotes I have come across. So my question to you is Are you an inactive Christian? I think it is important for all of us to think really deep about that question and look intently at our lives.
Gods word says “Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you? Unless indeed you are disqualified.”-2 Corinthians 13:5
It is very important for us to do spiritual check ups, just like when we get physical checks up at the doctors office. We will truly begin to know whether we are inactive Christians or not. As we grow closer to Jesus the more our life should reflect that.
You can’t say I’m an active Christian but you don’t share Gods word, make disciples, and you faithfully listen to secular music and watch garbage tv shows/movies. I love to tell people when in doubt pray, read Gods word, spend time with God and think “what would Jesus do” or what would Jesus Say?
When we do those things we will get answer. I dislike when people try to say it’s okay to watch or listen to secular music and movies. I’m not doing those things just watching them. In what way is that biblical and do you really think Jesus would watch or listen to that. I think a lot of times we are Luke warm Christians and we just want to have God and the world too. As Gods word says we can’t serve two masters you will either hate the one and love the other.
So please study Gods word, pray about everything, pray without ceasing. Definitely give up the world and its temporary things (material things etc) serve the Lord wholeheartedly and faithfully no matter what. Your life is a witness to everyone if you preach one thing and do another you will cause someone to stumble. You may cause someone who is an unbeliever to not want to be a Christian if your telling them for an example to love your neighbor but your constantly cussing your neighbor out. (Somethings wrong with that picture right?) I know we are not perfect by no means but we have Gods word and we have to stop intentionally sinning and start repenting and start living Gods way not ours.
