WHO REALLY HAS YOUR HEART?

 

This is a question many of us need to sit and think about before answering. For many ‘Christians’, they not just ‘date’ the devil, they have a thriving relationship with him. Know this: It is impossible to serve God and mammon. Friendship with the world is enmity with God (James 4:4) and God won’t have 99.9% of your heart (EX. 34:14).

You say you’re a Christian and you still cheat and carry out exam malpractice? You’re flirting with the devil. There is a very high tendency for people in a relationship to pick up habits and attitudes from each other. Hence, the saying ‘Show me your friends and I’ll tell you who you are’. Even the Bible note ‘Evil communication corrupts good manners’ (I Cor. 15:3).

Some will ask “what’s so wrong in helping out in the exam hall?” I’ll tell you- better still, the Bible tells us what is wrong:

–          ‘Everyone must submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is n authority except that which God has established. The authorities that exist have been established by God. Consequently, he who rebels against the authority is rebelling against what God has instituted, and those who do so will bring judgment on themselves’– Rom 13:1-2

 

–          ‘If ye love me, keep my commandments’- Jn. 14:15

 

Referring to the first passage, our authority can be seen as the school authorities. We are aware of rules and regulations guiding our exams, but for one reason or other, we flout them.

Referring to the second scripture, if truly you love the Lord; if Christ is the only one who has your heart, you should be making conscious efforts to obey Him. I know it’s not cool, I know it can sometimes seem stupid but you must realize that you have to take a stand. Stop the Double-Dating, have faith in Him alone and you’ll see that God is a faithful lover.

 

“And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to Him must believe that he exists and that He rewards those who earnestly seek Him” Heb 11:6

 

Do not be deceive yourself. Give reasonable attendance to studying. God is a GP booster, not a magician.

“Be not deceived. God is not mocked. For whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap” Gal. 6:7.

“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? He shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men” Prov. 22:29

EDITOR’S NOTE

Why give your heart to a double standard? A double minded man is unstable in all his ways. Surrender all to the master craft. He is willing to mould, break, crush and refine us.

FALL OR FLOW IN LOVE

I see no reason a student should fall in love when he or she is not ripe for marriage. When there is the possibility of ‘flowing’ in love.

This (love), the greatest of all gift comes naturally from individuals that are beneficiary of it. It helps to lift up the lethargic, lukewarm, inter Alia (amongst others). Have you experienced it? Spread some cheer to the sad and lonely people!

Some say they have experienced it but they don’t express it: “though I speak with tongues of men and angles, ‘lives will still be left in the dungeon of despair,’ though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and knowledge, the fainting and discouraged on life’s road will remain crushed beneath their loads’ without it. The greatest of all communicators expressed and still expressing it.

An anonymous writer wrote: “the greater your capacity to love, the greater your capacity to feel the pain. Pain is temporal, it may last a minute, an hour, a day, a week, month or even a year but it will eventually subside and something else will take its place.

“The pain of love is the pain of being alive. It’s a perpetual, indefinite or lasting wind. It is like Heaven but hurts like hell: it is like War, easy to begin but hard to end: it is like burden which must not be carried alone”

Have you encountered this medium who can help you carry this burden called LOVE and invariably express it for the World to see?

“Out of darkness of sorrow and sin,” a song writer pens down, “many are helpless and wait for your call, somebody needs your love. Someone is tempted to turn from the right longing for courage and strength for the fight, somebody needs your love. Some are downhearted, in sorrow they roam. Sighing for Heaven and Home; somebody needs your love.

“Many are in sadness, yearning for gladness, somebody needs your love.”

We see students in this present dispensation longing and lusting after the painting and pleasure of pneumatic peers so as to gain the love of the world or be accepted and or loved but still carry that hollowness of Divine Love within.

Have you experienced this Divine Love? Express it.

Awake O sinful friend because there is a kind of love that constrains/compels when the goings are good, even when the browsing through life is bad; there is still a free flow of love.

For the love of Christ compels us” 2Cor. 5:14a.

Come to this medium (Christ) and experience true love and express it.

Has your life been transformed to express this love? Someone said that the prison reforms, school informs but Christ (medium) transforms.

If you have been transformed by Him, flow in this love an don’t fall into it and if not, you can come to Christ just as you are, asking Him to take away every iniquity and carnality that can hinder Him from coming into your heart and expressing it(Love) through you.

Believe that He has done it…. Mark 12:30,31; Rev3:20; Rom 10:11

EDITOR’S NOTE

Why fall in love just to get heart broken? His unending LOVE is for us all. It compels us. It constrains us. It is everlasting. FLOW in that love.
