How disciplined are we really?
You know the things that you do that no one else knows about, I Mean No One else knows about. Why do you do them? Would you do them if everyone could know? How would you feel if your Parents, Spouse, Employer or Pastor found out? Are you ashamed of or depressed after you do them?
A good friend of mine Rev. Ricky Georgetown once made this statement "After you do whatever you do in the dark, run to a mirror and ask Jesus if he enjoyed it too." The truth of the matter is that Jesus is always with us- because GOD IS... always in our midst. So then the deeper question is why are we ashamed of things before our family, co-workers and church members but not in front of God.
I encourage you to look back over Romans 12 today and meditate on the presenting your bodies as a living sacrifice part, being holy and acceptable. Ask yourself why is it that you consider your behavior acceptable to God, and if you don't maybe it's time to think about changing some things. Maybe we are not as disciplined as we think we are?
Until tomorrow, may God be with you ALWAYS. Love Pastor J
