Don’t Play Around

by | May 10, 2012 | Purpose & Identity

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. —John 10:10

With these words Jesus drew a line in the sand between the works of God and the works of the devil. God’s work is life-giving, healing and uplifting. “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights” (James 1:17). Everything that steals, kills, and destroys is the work of the devil. Sickness, disease, and injury do not come from God.

Christianity is not a game that you play on Sunday and then reenter the world’s game on Monday. The devil will see to you that you lose such a game. Being a Christian, a little anointed one, means that you live out Christ’s life seven days and week and twenty-four hours a day. You cannot play at faith-.-.-.-you must live it!

Don’t play around with salvation. You are either a child of the devil or a child of God. The devil hates his own kids. He will use you, abuse you, and destroy you, as long as you play around in his kingdom.

Draw close to God through prayer (Psalm 91:15), giving (Luke 6:38), fasting (Luke 2:37), and living right (Romans 6:13). Praise Him for your salvation that allows you to walk in victory.

Lord Jesus, I have stopped playing the game, and I am
in the race for real. Help me to live for
You every moment of today. Amen.
