Morning Coffee 10/21/14 Seeds!: Choked By Life!
“The seed falling among the thorns refers to someone who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke the word, making it unfruitful. (Matthew 13:22 NIV)
Hello family! We are continuing on in Matthew chapter thirteen the parable of the sower. If you are just joining us I encourage you if you haven’t already to go back and read the devotions in the series. I will provide links to them at the bottom.
What is more important, obtaining the possessions of this world or obtaining things that will uplift our spirit? I am not knocking having a nice house or car, everyone wants nice things. As we discussed in Morning Coffee 10/15/14, Our soul is what is most important. Family, I have at times put more focus on obtaining the things of this world and it did distract me from hearing from God.
If we are so caught up in making money, getting this and getting that, We won't be able to fully receive God's word and follow Him because we are afraid of what we might have to give up (Read Matthew 19:20-22). Family nothing on this earth is worth more than what God can give us. Nothing is worth more than the sacrifice Christ made on the cross The eternal life that He offers to everyone is far more valuable than anything you can get or poses. Your life on this earth is too finite when compared with eternity. This mortal body will die, but our soul will live on. And live on in one of two places, either in heaven or hell, we were born into sin and Christ is the atonement for that sin. If you haven’t accepted Christ as your Lord Savior, when your life is over you will spend ETERNITY in hell. But If call out Christ and ask Him to save you from eternal torment you will be saved. This means letting Him Be Lord over your life. You will have to give up something you hold dear, but what Christ offers you is worth so much more!
Here is your opportunity to give your life over to Christ! You don’t have to get right for Him, you can’t get right for Him he will make you right. Don’t put this off till you are older, you feel God tugging at your heart and urging you to do this. Don’t fight it any longer you have been avoiding it long enough, come to Christ and surrender to His Call. He Loves you and wants to do great things with you, all you have to do is surrender.
You may not have great wealth, but if the fear of what you will have to give up is holding you back from following God don’t fear what God has for you is so much more valuable than what you can hold on to. Come accept Christ into your heart and make Him Lord over your life. You don’t need a fancy prayer, just speak to him from your heart. Below is a prayer to help you.
Jesus, forgive me of my sins. I need you to come into my life and save me, I hear you calling and I am answering. Come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior and I will follow you all the days of my life. In Jesus name, Amen!
If you just prayed that prayer and meant it from your heart, You are now a follower of Christ. I encourage you to find a good bible teaching church ask God to lead you, he will guide you to the right place. Talk to God, He is your new best friend, He is listening.If you need prayer, please email me at email@example.com
Much Love And God Bless
