We can be tossed by the sea of life and we can be thrown into all the chaos around us, but dear Christian we must do this today……..
DRIVE YOUR SPIRITUAL STAKE IN THE GROUND NOW
Take a spiritual stand for the GOSPEL now before it is too late. Because our spiritual security is only in the GOSPEL of JESUS and there are those around us who are perishing.
1 CORINTHIANS 1: 18 “FOR THE MESSAGE OF THE CROSS IS FOOLISHNESS TO THOSE WHO ARE PERISHING, BUT TO US WHO ARE BEING SAVED IT IS THE POWER OF GOD.”
Our very souls long for eternity and for security…….humanity searches for this. And right now this searching has led humanity down a very evil path. The world is lost, but those who know JESUS have eternity in our sights because……
ECCLESIASTES 3: 11 “HE HAS ALSO PUT ETERNITY IN THEIR HEARTS……”
Those who fight the good fight, long for all that is true, secure and righteous. But there are those who fall away when they don’t get all the answers. There are those who believe no matter what comes, no matter how difficult life gets and oh it is pretty evil and twisted right now…….that they have placed their spiritual stake in the ground on the bedrock of their GOD. I don’t know about you, but I need this deep down and know this with my being……
THE LORD IS THEIR ROCK OF SALVATION, NEVER TO BE MOVED.
Oh to persevere in this life! How are we capable of this? We must endure and only through the LORD JESUS can we continue to follow the path of salvation, rather than destruction.
MATTHEW 24: 12-13 “BECAUSE LAWLESSNESS WILL MULTIPLY, THE LOVE OF MANY WILL GROW COLD. BUT THE ONE WHO ENDURES TO THE END WILL BE SAVED.”
We all must look in the mirror at one point and say to ourselves: am I all in? You either take JESUS 100% or not. You either take HIS words and embrace them 100% or not. There is no in-between. But there are Churches right now softening the GOSPEL to not offend. They are trying to be friends with the world and even embracing woke ideas of the world. If you are in one of these Churches I encourage you to leave and find one that fully embraces JESUS and HIS HOLY WORD.
Place your stake in the ground and say no to all the feel-good sermons and look for those places that teach only the WORD of GOD. Through CHRIST and HIS many promises to us, our security is in HIM and what HE said to us:
JOHN 17: 12 “I GUARDED THEM AND NOT ONE OF THEM IS LOST, EXCEPT THE SON OF DESTRUCTION, SO THAT THE SCRIPTURE MAY BE FULFILLED.”
AND THIS PROMISE TOO……
JOHN 17: 24 “FATHER, I WANT THOSE YOU HAVE GIVEN ME TO BE WITH ME WHERE I AM.”
Jesus wants us with HIM…….HE died on the Cross for us, so that all who believe in HIM would not perish. Let HIS promise of this sink deep down into you……and with this promise drive your spiritual stake into the ground…….HIS ground is a solid ground of strength, righteousness, goodness, provision and security!
We all must remain strong for what is coming in the last days. We must not waiver or lose heart. Let us continue to build one another up and never give up meeting with one another. And continue to encourage the Body of Christ whenever you can, however you can. GOD gave us one another for this very reason, to help each other in our daily walks until CHRIST returns.
Today, place your spiritual stake into the immovable solid ground and know that only with JESUS you are secure for all of eternity. Stand tall and stand secure in HIS spirit given to you, because HE loves you and wants you to remain steadfast. Be strong and built up in HIS word today and stake your life on the SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST!
JAMES 1: 4 “AND LET STEADFASTNESS HAVE IT’S FULL EFFECT, THAT YOU MAY BE PERFECT AND COMPLETE, LACKING IN NOTHING.”
