Isn’t it something how “CHURCH FOLK”, “CHURCH PEOPLE”, those “PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH”, and all of the other names by which we are addressed, are blamed for the failings, fallings, reasons for people not excelling, reasons why people won’t come to church; reasons why people are yet sinning, reasons why people don’t believe in God, BECAUSE of The CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH.
This is truth! Hear me or don’t hear me. CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH are humans. People who are flesh and blood, fighting against the same demons of those calling us CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH.
The difference is, CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH are sinners saved by grace. They are sinners fighting each and every day to hold on to their deliverance. Trying not to drink again! Trying not to smoke again! Trying not to use drugs again! Trying not to lie! Trying not to cheat! Trying to hold out until God sends their husband or wife and not fornicate! Trying to be faithful to their own husband or wife and not commit adultery! Trying not to do every other sin that sinners have the privilege of doing and not feeling guilty about it.
You can use US as your excuse to do what it is you want to do because that’s what you want to do. “But that is not going to kick it with God.”
It’s easy to blame CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH, for YOU doing what you want to do. “I’m doing this because those CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH didn’t show me no love.”
NO!!! That’s not a dress I will wear. You will wear that one all by yourself. Your sin will be on you and not because of me. Your going to hell will be because of you, not because of me! Your backsliding will be on you, not because of me!
I have my own things that I must deal with trying to make it in the Kingdom. I must deal with my own flesh, trying to keep it in subjection to God, and make it do what it doesn’t want to do so that I can live Holy. I want to hear the Lord say, “well done thy good and faithful servant, ENTER IN” for my ownself.
So, when you stand before God, and seeing the times we are living it doesn’t seem to be too far off, the last words spoken over you will not be by a PREACHER, but by GOD. And those words will be because of you and your choices.
The hands of the CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH will not be held responsible for you not doing what God said do…You are on your own!
You make the choices that you make because of you and no one else. You live the kind of life that you live because of you and no one else.
So, CHURCH FOLK, CHURCH PEOPLE, and those PEOPLE IN THE CHURCH, make sure that your life is in keeping with the word of God. Because the same God that our accusers must stand before, we must also stand. All I want to hear from GOD saying to me is, “WELL DONE THY GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT… ENTER IN!”
