The unconverted believer (3)

Matt18:23, says; “Therefore is the kingdom of heaven likened unto a certain king, which would take account of his servants.”

 

Here, Jesus put it clear to Peter, that it appears he was more concerned about what pleases man, and flesh, than what pleases God.

 

If Jesus did not die for us at the cross of Calvary, could we have been saved? If Jesus had agreed with Peter, and said he was not going to die again, the whole world would have been lost. Some of the things you are passing through today, which some people see as suffering, is the instrument God wants to use to draw many people to himself, and make you to become real Christian.

 

To transform, and make you more prayerful. Make you to have faith in God, make you have more love for God. Jesus makes us to understand that anybody that is dancing to the tune of the flesh, such person is being controlled by Satan.

 

That was why God rebuked Peter. I want us to know that Jesus was doing the perfect will of God, he doesn’t want anybody to make him lose site of what God wants him to do.

 

Matt. 16:24 says; ‘’Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and  follow me.”Anybody that will take the things of this world, and begin to lose site with God, that person will automatically miss the kingdom of God, is it because of the things of this world, we are no longer committed? we are no longer spiritual?

 

we are no longer doing what we should do, well, if you have found pleasure for the thing of this world, I want to let you know that it is a clear evidence that you have lost souls, and you will not enter the kingdom of God, if you think because of your wisdom, you won’t obey God, you won’t be serious, you won’t be spiritual, you won’t preach the word of God, and you think you can make it that way, at the end of this life you will regret if you are not converted.

 

I want you to understand, when you serve the Lord and lose whatever you have here on earth and even your life I am assuring you, you are going to gain because your life is secure in the hands of God. Heb. 10:7, let us do the will of God according to the bible. Roman 8:14 “For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.”

 

So when one is born again, that person is controlled by the will of God. Many people who claim to be born again or believers but are struggling to do his will, or keep his commandment, such people are not converted, they are not born again.

 

They are struggling to please God, they are struggling to do his will, they are struggling to do his teachings, his instructions, the things of God, from the Bible, from their Pastor. If you are struggling to do the will of God it is a sign that you are not converted. please check your life, you find it difficult to come to service, difficult to live right, difficult to obey the totality of the word of God, if you were born again, it means you have backsliden.
