One of the things that's really plaguing the church throughout America, is the overwhelming sentiment that all of our actions and motives toward the things of God are propelled by the desire to be "Blessed" and/or "get a Blessing."
I often wonder where the heart of the American church would be IF THERE WERE NO PROMISE OF BLESSING. Conversely, Where would our hearts be IF THERE WERE NO CONSEQUENCE OF HELL? Where do we REALLY stand? Where is our heart?
DO WE REALLY LOVE GOD???
I burn w/ a Holy hatred whenever I hear "Men of God" proclaiming to people that if you tithe and live for God, then God's gonna bring you your new house, car, watch, gold chain, diamonds, etc. What verse?? This is simply just NOT TRUE. As a matter of fact, God is constantly telling us NOT to worry about treasures here on Earth and to NOT be concerned about the affairs of this life, but yet these "preachers" want to act like material things are God's primary way of Blessing???
How dare we INSULT GOD by dumbing down His power and ability to Bless his children to something as pitiful as a WATCH, when He can give you PEACE that surpasses all understanding!
PSA TO THE PEOPLE OF GOD: BLESSINGS FROM GOD DON'T ULTIMATELY OR PRIMARILY COME IN THE FORM OF MATERIAL THINGS. God wants to give you things that money can't buy like: LOVE , JOY, PEACE, AND THE POWER TO HEAL THE SICK AND RAISE THE DEAD! Things that can ONLY COME FROM HIM AND THAT NOBODY CAN TAKE FROM YOU.
My desire is that you take the time to think about why you serve God the way you do? What's the motivation behind your service, LOVE or OBLIGATION?
Because God is so much more than your "new car"....#ThinkAboutIt
