God is not the product of my worship, He is not a product of my praise, God is not a product of my words. My worship, my praise, my words are a product of His presence in my life.
It is impossible, should not be believed, that if I praise, if I worship, this will gain me the presence of God in that moment. It is to believe that something I do in a moment, can bring God’s presence into my life.
The Words says that a humble heart He will not turn away, but what this means is that a sinner can repent and receive God’s mercy, but after this, the law of the laborer is applied.
God presence in my life is a product of doing what he desires me to do, to follow His commandments, to keep his statutes, to do His will. This obedience brings His presence into my life, then… His presence causes praise, worship, adoration.
We have fallen into a routine, a custom, a formality, and grown used to doing things that seem Christian-like, but a relationship with The Lord Jesus Christ is much more than just words. Much more than saying, “I am Christian”. More than a few hours every… Sun… day?
Do not deceive yourself…
Christian means follower of Christ, imitator of Christ, Christian means doing as He did, following His footsteps as closely as my faith permits. My lifestyle must be a reflection of His lifestyle, otherwise I am deceiving myself.
His word must live within my mind, it must permeate my thoughts; it must be the guide, the light which shines upon my daily walk in this world.
There must be a constant prayer within me, a constant praise, a constant worship. My thoughts must always come back to that which is most important in my life, back to God, persistently insisting on my need to be close to Him.
God’s presence in my life must permeate everything which I do throughout every day’s chores. I cannot forget, not for a moment. The gift is too precious to be left unattended.
Everything and anything that causes a “rupture” in this relationship… must… be eradicated.
The Lord does not demand that Christians mature immediately, but a carnal Christian is rejected eventually, because he remains “chained” to the desire of his flesh and will not break his relationship with his carnal desires.
Following what “we” think is good, is rebellion. The thoughts of all human minds are misleading, regardless of opinions, beliefs or theories.
Only a spiritual life can conquer the bad desires of the human flesh. It is the reason why Jesus Christ declared that only a “born again person” could enter into the kingdom of heaven. Because a person needs to follow the guidance of his “reborn” self, his “now” useful spirit.
