1 Peter 4:17-18 KJV
For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
Christian, where is God? You say, what do you mean? If others paid as much attention as you do to good and with the same level of devotion, what would you truly feel? Rejection? Where is God in your life? Is he a road side show that you stop to watch every once in a while? Do you go to the movie every weekend to get a little longer version of the snippets you may have watched during the week?
Where is God? When you read the book of Acts, where is God? Front, center, side, top, bottom. He turned the world upside down. How can we be the same church? Are we an insult to all that is called holy? God says he calls his people to weep and to pray. Do you weep and pray? God says to Derek his kingdom first. Do you seek his kingdom first? God says that the life we now live should be lived in the faith of Christ. Are we living this way?
W have been given all spiritual blessings, all the riches of glory, are we rejecting them for the temporal things of this world? Where is God? Is he with you every moment of every day? Do you walk in the spirit, live on the spirit, pray in the spirit? If he walked beside you every day in person would you be happy for him to see your day?
Oh God, stamp eternity on our eyeballs! May we put aside the American dream and give ourselves as a living sacrifice! Make us love you as Christ loved you. Make us know that we are but dust, made to bring glory to God. Make us see the riches in Christ, the glory of eternity, the power of the spirit, the love of God, the end of out being! May the Lamb that was slain receive the reward of His suffering!
Again, where is God in your life? This is the question only you can answer, but eternity hangs on that answer.
