Good morning brothers and sisters. I have had a heavy heart for the pass several days. Today is the start of "Pride month". It has been weighing heavy on my heart. Pride is something we as Christ Followers throw down. But Jesus reminded me just this morning, He is still in control. But as for His children, He is telling us to rise up! We don't fight this war with physical weapons but with spiritual ones. Ephesians 5:14- Awake, you who sleep, arise from the dead, and Christ will give you light. We are coming to a cross roads. Which path are you going to take? Because remember we were once in darkness but once we accepted the life of Christ, we are no longer in darkness. Ephesians 5:8- For you were once darkness, BUT NOW you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light. Let us not forget that a warning is given in Romans 13:11- And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to AWAKE out of sleep; for now OUR salvation is nearer than when we first believed. I am not saying to go out and do any harm, because we are not called for that. We are called to different standard. We are called to a Godly standard. But what I mean is that it is time for all of us, to hit our knees, pray, repent, seek the Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. It is time for us to unite under Christ. I don't really know why this is so heavy on my heart but it is. We also get a warning in Revelation 3:1-2- And to the angel of the church in Sardis write, "These things says He who has the seven Spirits of God and the seven stars; "I know your works, that you have a name that you are alive BUT you are dead. BE WATCHFUL, and STRENGTHEN the things which remain, that are READY to DIE, for I have NOT found your works perfect before God. Are we a living, breathing church? There is enough warning about being a believer but being dead. Gracious heavenly Father, awaken us! Call us out! Speak the truth that only You can provide. Touch every heart and let them heed your warning. Rise up, o child of God, rise up! Be watchful, be diligent. I don't know what has the heaviness today but join me in prayer. Let's lift a joyful noise to One who does know.
