Grace, Love, and Sincerity

Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ with sincerity. Ephesians 6:24 Greetings! BlogFam, Did you know that there are people in this world who are not in a loving relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ? YES there are men and women who have heard the Gospel message and walked away. There are men and women who have heard the Gospel message and have chosen to reject the free gift of salvation for more reasons than I could possibly name in the space and time allotted for my blog. And I want to say to those of us who espouse Christianity as our lens through which we see the world, those of us who believe that Jesus paid the price for our sins at Calvary, those of us who are looking for the Second Coming where we will meet the Lord in the air, I want say to US, (I include myself because I am one of those redeemed saints of the Most High)...... I want to say to US, Can you blame them? Lets think about this for a brief moment. For whether or not they have heard and rejected the Gospel after a sermon, a concert, a church camp, an individual one on one witnessing conversation, the fact remains that OUR hypocrisy is one of the leading reasons why they say they refuse the Gospel because what they hear from US and what they see about US is two different things. Our words and our lifestyles just do not add up. Our proclamation of the power of God to change our lives is contradictory to how we walk and talk everyday! So can you really blame them? I know you may not want to think about this reality. I know it actually blows your mind to think that you just might actually be the reason why someone you know or maybe even a stranger dismissed the love of God through Jesus. I know most of you have never even cared enough to consider the truth that your witness is really not that tight! It is faithless, flimsy, funny, and fake. The truth is that I believe that there are so many more people who would say YES if we practiced what we preach and were mindful about the lessons that we teach by the lives we choose to live. Our Scripture for today is the closing of Paul's letter to the church at Ephesus: Ephesians 6:24 KJV Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in SINCERITY. Amen. We thrive on Gods grace and we relish the unfailing love of God toward us but when it comes to allowing that same grace and love to flow between and amongst those in the body of Christ, those who are a part of the household of faith, the sisters and brothers who have acknowledged, believed, and confessed, the flow gets stopped up, choked up, backed up, and caught up by all the wrong thoughts, attitudes, actions, doubts, worries, hatred, jealousy, ambition, gossip, and un-forgiven wounds inflicted by others. We make it hard-er for those who keep their YES to themselves particularly because of all the reasons I have named and for reasons that have not been mentioned, WE PROVE THAT WE ARE NOT SINCERE. Ephesians 6:24 KJV Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in SINCERITY. Amen. Sincerity is FREEDOM FROM DECEIT, HYPOCRISY, or DUPLICITY. So, BlogFam, think about your personal witness. Is your witness, your lifestyle, your thoughts, attitudes, and actions FREE from deceit, hypocrisy, or duplicity? Could it be that as you evaluate all aspects of your own life that YOU could be one of the reasons why somebody or anybody, familiar or unfamiliar, friend or foe, family member or church member, neighbor or co-worker has not said YES? Ephesians 6:24 KJV Grace be with all them that love our Lord Jesus Christ in sincerity. Amen. My sistas and brothas, I am praying today for those who are not in a loving relationship with the Lord Jesus. I am praying today for the conviction of hearts in those of us who do believe but have been careless in our witness and lifestyle. I pray that WE would be conduits of God's grace and love and that our witness to this world would be sincere. I love you BlogFam and I pray that you are not the reason why there is one less YES. God Loves You and I do too!!! Delesslyn Follow on Twitter @AudraSunshine or @SpiritedConcept
