“The Lord says; “These people come near to me with their mouth and honour me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. Their worship of me is made up only of rules taught by men.” Isaiah 29:13
You change your life positively when you ‘sincerely’ worship God. I mean ‘sincerely’ when you go to God in truth. It is one thing to worship God with your hymns and songs but your heart is emptied. And it is exactly another thing to worship God with the same hymns and songs that comes out of extreme genuineness.
There is no doubt that for the sake of money making rituals, many new-founded churches have developed worship in their own styles, which are contrary to God’s foundation. As long as church members can donate huge sum of money, these so-called men of God don’t care about God. They want the money. And for them to get it, they can go extra length pretending to be on God’s side.
Let me remind you here — God is not to be mocked. It may take time but that moment will come when you realise that you cannot mix God and false worship together. No one may see through your mind to know if you are truly worshipping God BUT remember, GOD SEES THROUGH EVERY HUMAN’S HEART!
It is a shame to the gospel of Christ when you cannot stand for what you call yourself. If you are a Christian, then make sure you are. If you are a false Christian, then ensure you remain like that. You reproach God when your lifestyle is not in accordance with the image of Christ.
Only God can judge. He alone has the power to give you many chances of coming back to Him. He loves you. He cares for you even more than you ever imagine. He does not want you to keep living your life carelessly as if you are the owner of it.
And that’s why He is sending you this message. He wants you to be sincere in your worship of Him. He cares about the hymns and songs of love you sing to Him. He wants to experience the genuineness of your love for Him. Flee from the rules of worship that ordinary men set out.
You alone stand before God when you open your mouth to worship Him. You alone have one heart that God sees as you praise Him. And for this reason, you must rearrange your life and be honest with your Maker.
What are you looking for elsewhere that you cannot find in God? What happened to the love you confessed, tearfully to God that you have for Him? How far have your gone from your honesty with God? Have you lost your true Christian Faith?
Please set a day with God and reconcile with Him. It is never too late. He is not just God of second chance. He is God of many chances.
