HOW DESPERATE ATE YOU?(2)
*WISDOM FOR TODAY.*
*HOW DESPERATE ARE YOU?(2)*
Psalm 27:4 ---► *One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to inquire in his temple.*
*Insight and Highlight.*
Psalm 122:1-2--► *I was glad when they said unto me, Let us go into the house of the Lord.*
*Our feet shall stand within thy gates, O Jerusalem.*
The psalmist in Psalms 27 and 122 tells us the importance and secret of lasting fellowship with God.
From all indications, we can see two categories of people.
First, there are those who are intouch with the Church but not with God.
Second, there are those who are in Church but not in touch with God.
It may be hard to believe these categories of people do exist.
The Apostle Paul warns us of the first category. They are in touch with the Church but not with God, Acts 20:29-30.
He also gave examples of those who are in Church but not in touch with God, Demas, Alexander the Coppersmith (2 Tim 4:10, 2 Tim 4:14).
How desperate are you for God?
Let us follow the examples of those who are both in touch with the Church and with God.
Those who are desperate for God will both be in touch with the Church and with God. They are not like Demas who once was but was no more.
*Call to Word action.*
Philemon 1:23-25---► *Epaphras, my fellow prisoner in Christ Jesus, sends you greetings, as do Mark, Aristarchus, Demas, and Luke, my fellow workers. The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit.…"*
*The Christian clarion duty.*
Beware, *"Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them,"* Acts 20:30.
Lord, that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, in Jesus name.
Good morning all and have a blessed day today.
God bless you.
