EXAMINE YOUR ROOTS

image

LISTEN TO AUDIO VERSION

Luke 8:13

Those on the rock are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.

NIV

Someone gave his life to Christ because he heard a sermon about how God gave a man a miracle house, if such a one does not come to understand the basic principles of the kingdom and understand the cross, he will not last.

One of the ways of knowing the nature of your root as a Christian is understanding the premise of your being born again and what keeps you coming back to God’s throne; were you born again because you needed something from God or were you born again because the Holy spirit convicted you of your sin and you saw the need for a savior? Do you approach God’s throne daily because of physical needs or because of a spiritual need for grace to be more like Christ?

I want you to ask yourself today what inspired your repentance and acceptance of the lordship of Jesus Christ, I want you to also ask yourself if He is still in control as lord over your life.

Go into today determined to fellowship with God from a pure heart of love, do this by first examining and acknowledging God’s love for you (see 1 John 4:19).

Prayer: father in heaven, I thank you for saving me, I pray that you give me the right heart so I can grow in the fullness of your plan for my life, I pray you fill every thirst and hunger in me and give an addiction for you, in Jesus name I pray. Amen
