There are many things “Ye Shall Know” and I dare not attempt (in this small devotion) to tackle all or even many of them.
So, my question is where to begin? I direct this to those of you who call yourselves Christians. A part of our knowledge is we “Shall Know” that all those who call themselves Christians are not necessarily Christian. Jesus covers this particular subject many times.
All our efforts must be “in His will.” This is not a command to the unsaved, but for the knowledge of the Christian. When we proclaim Jesus as our Saviour, our whole life should change. Our focus should be doing God’s Will.
However, the norm in most Churches is that many do not serve Him. They may serve by going to Church (in their minds “reasonably” regular), yet, their tithes and offerings are non-existent or minimal. Their efforts to physically work (during off hours) within the Church just isn’t there. The 80/20 rule always applies. (The application is 80% of the work is done by 20% of the people.) Yet, they all call themselves Christians. How can that be if they “do not the things which I say.” Jesus’ commandments are to do “the will of my Father” our God in heaven.
What kind of profession have you made? Do you rely upon your emotions, (allowing your emotions to steer you?) God steers each of us by the sweat of our brow, and us knowing (by the Holy Spirit) to do the “the will of my Father.”
Have you accepted Jesus as your Saviour? Has your life changed in a way that others can see the change? God loves us no doubt, yet He expects us to toil for Him. Do you?
