Change For The Better

If you really change your ways and your actions and deal with each other justly, if you do not oppress the foreigner, the fatherless or the widow and do not shed innocent blood in this place, and if you do not follow other gods to your own harm, then I will let you live in this place, in the land I gave your ancestors for ever and ever. ~ Jeremiah 7:5-7

First things first. God wants us all to change. But to change for the better. He wants us to be just and fair. Not mean and stingy. Not just to our loved ones, but even to the stranger who isn’t like us. He wants us to show no partiality.

As Christians, we don’t focus on race, ethnicity, nationality, political views, religious views, or anything else that the world tries to divide us with. We love because He first loved us and taught us how to live and love. He told us, do not shed innocent blood (which includes sacrificing our own children), and do not follow other gods (knowingly or unknowingly).

What I mean is this: do not participate in things that are used in the worship of other gods, such as abortion (which is child sacrifice) and yoga (which is synonymous with Eastern religious worship), whether some people accept it or not.

God said, if you do these things (love all people) and keep away from the others (sin and temptation), you will live in His promise. So, I ask you, do you want to live in God’s promises? Of course you do. We all do.

If so, then, today, make a commitment to live in obedience and stay away from rebellion and blatant sin. Dear heavenly Father, I come in reverence seeking Your face and calling upon Your Name. Please forgive me and help me to live my life according to Your great expectations You have made. Thank You, LORD Jesus, for it is in Your name we pray, amen.
