[Shepherding the sheep with One heart] By what are you caught?

  • 2016.10.30 22:45

Your eyes should be open wide to see by what you are caught and by what you are being used now. If your eyes are open, that shows that you are awake. Being awake means that you have realized by whom you are led. Realizing by whom you are led means that you have decided to do something.  You have to keep in mind that the life you live in this world will lead you to an important and everlasting result:  life or death; blessing or curse before the Judgement Seat of God.


God is the only One by whom you are taken. God holds us to forgive our sins, to save us from destruction, from all kinds of diseases, and from curses – and also to use us.   


If you are held by God, you really want to come to church and sing praise to God. And you want to give thanks to God. Above all things, you want to evangelize people who are doomed to hell through not knowing about Jesus. But he who is caught by sinful desires and worldly things just wants worldly pleasure and the good things of the world.


You should be alert so that you are not caught by the devil’s trap, realizing by what you are being caught in your life.  If you do this, you will be used by God when God wants to heal somebody, to drive demons out of somebody, or to save somebody. 


We live our life only for the time of soul. That's why we should be totally taken by God. We should be full of the Holy Spirit. Being full of the Holy Spirit means that God commands and controls us. There is no room to worry about whether you are caught by God or the world.


Please, examine yourself to see by what you are caught now. We have to enjoy everlasting happiness in the time of soul after being used by God.
