100% Committed

As I read the stories of the Old Testament Kings in the Bible, I can’t help but find myself drawing parallels with Christian life today. There were some kings who were 100% sold out for God, and God poured out incredible blessings on their land while they were king. Unfortunately, there are other kings that were 100% sold out to evil, and God not only removed His blessings from their land, but brought destruction on them as well. And, as is common with Christians of today, there were plenty of kings who went a long way toward serving God, but refused to clean up a few little areas of their land. Do you know these people? They’re the Christians who do the “Sunday” thing, and maybe even the “Wednesday” thing, but somewhere they’ve got an area or two they refuse to clean up. Maybe it’s sexual sins; problems with their thought life; gambling addictions; pornography; selfishness, etc. Either way, they’re not only missing God’s blessings because if it, they’re also risking His wrath. You can go to Bible studies 7-days a week, and help homeless people in your spare time, but if you’re trying to hide something from God, you’re only fooling yourself.

“Asa [King of Judah] did what was right in the eyes of the Lord, as his father David had done. He expelled the male shrine prostitutes from the land and got rid of all the idols his fathers had made. He even deposed his grandmother Maacah from her position as queen mother, because she had made a repulsive Asherah pole. Asa cut the pole down and burned it in the Kidron Valley. Although he did not remove the high places, Asa’s heart was fully committed to the Lord all his life.” 1 Kings 15:11-14

How many of us will have that written about us… “________’s heart was fully committed to the Lord all his/her life.” 

In Christ,

Before I became a Christian, I wanted nothing to do with Christianity or religion!  I just knew I’d have to stop doing all the “fun” things I was doing!  Controlled by the flesh, I had no concept thes

Worldly?

“You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly?” 1 Corinthians 3:3 What a biting indictment from the Apostle Paul. Can you imagine just for a mom

Students?

For years now I’ve been learning a little more about Jesus each and every day. I suppose I’ve learned more than the average person, but surely I’ll not understand all of His teachings while I’m in th
