What will you then live for?
While making changes in the way we live, what God needs from us is to also change not only how we see life but also a change in our priorities, our relationships, and everything else. It will sometime mean choosing a difficult path instead of an easy one. This is to say, we need to live for the glory of God and God alone. Will you live for your own goals, comfort and pleasure? Or will you live the rest of your life for the glory of God. Knowing that the reward of God’s glory is eternity. Many people hesitate when it comes to this issue of whether to live for God or for them. I remember me, myself before when I would think about giving up the party life. The fact of letting all that go made me terrified and I would find myself living a double life. But the reason to why I thought this way was because I thought that, that is where my joy and happiness came from. I had convinced myself that it was the source of my happiness until I learnt that there’s not true happiness within the earthly things and that only true happiness and joy lays in the house of God. I pray for you that God helps you make a better choice in your life which is to live for him because God will give you what you need and even better. The bible says “Everything that goes into a life of pleasing God had been miraculously given to us by getting to know, personally, and intimately, the one who invites us to God”.
One night, it was a Saturday morning. I told my cousin who was staying with us for her holidays here in Rwanda. I told her to come with me to church the following day and her response melted my heart and I was amazed by the honesty to it. She told me, she wouldn’t come to church with me because God is not pleased with her actions so she wouldn’t dare to walk into the house of the lord. Being too deep into the earthly things had convinced her that she wasn’t good enough but little did she know that God has a soft spot for sinners. First, you have to believe that God loves you and that’s a fact. Believe you have a purpose. Believe that God has chosen you to have a relationship with Jesus and for that, he is ready to receive you, no matter what you’ve done in the past. God does not hold grudges, God forgives and forgets. Second receive Jesus Christ as your lord and savior and learn to listen to his guidance.
