Stop Making God an Afterthought

Spread the love

Oh, come on, you know it’s true. Most Christians make God an afterthought. He’s either a last resort, or something you occasionally give reverence to.

Sure, most don’t miss church on Sunday, but how often do Christians dig into the word?

If we want our nation to be blessed by God, we must seek God where he can be found, and guess what, it’s not in a building.

God can be found in his word and by prayer.

The more time you spend in these places, the more of his presence you’ll receive and the blessings will follow.

God’s not far away, he’s right here. Can’t you hear him calling?

“The Kingdom of Heaven can be illustrated by the story of a king who prepared a great wedding feast for his son. When the banquet was ready, he sent his servants to notify those who were invited. But they all refused to come! So he sent other servants to tell them, ‘The feast has been prepared. The bulls and fattened cattle have been killed, and everything is ready. Come to the banquet!’ But the guests he had invited ignored them and went their own way, one to his farm, another to his business. Others seized his messengers and insulted them and killed them. The king was furious, and he sent out his army to destroy the murderers and burn their town. And he said to his servants, ‘The wedding feast is ready, and the guests I have invited aren’t worthy of the honor. Now go out to the street corners and invite everyone you see.’ So the servants brought in everyone they could find, good and bad alike, and the banquet hall was filled with guests. But when the king came in to meet the guests, he noticed a man wasn’t wearing the proper clothes for a wedding. ‘Friend,’ he asked, ‘how is it that you are here without wedding clothes?’ But the man had no reply. Then the king said to his aides, ‘Bind his hands and feet and throw him into outer darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’ For many are called, but few are chosen.” Matthew 22:2-14

 ‘But the guests he had invited ignored them and went their own way’

What on earth could be more important than God?

Don’t ignore him, and don’t approach him wearing the wrong clothes of faithlessness. You either own the salvation of Christ, or you don’t. We should wear the atonement of Jesus Christ on our heads like a crown, instead of hiding it in our back pocket, the way so many do.   

God wants all of you, and no one else can love you like he does.

He’s calling your name; otherwise, you wouldn’t be reading this.

So what are you waiting for?

Join the banquet today!
