Avoiding Vaccination

Posted by Dion Todd June 23rd, 2015 13,561 Views 0 Comments

I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were cold or hot. So, because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will vomit you out of my mouth. Because you say, I am rich, and have gotten riches, and have need of nothing; and dont know that you are the wretched one, miserable, poor, blind, and naked; Revelation 3:15 WEB

The needle hurt when they gave me the shot. It was vaccination time again and everyone had to get them before school started back. They gave you a little bit of the virus and then your immune system built up a defense against it. It kept you from getting the real thing.

Many today learn a little about the Lord Jesus, but then go no further. Their life does not change and slowly the fire dies within them. They are neither cold nor hot, and are the hardest of all to reach because they think they already know about Jesus, but they do not. The one scripture that scares me the most in the entire Bible is Matthew 7:23 which reads, Then I will tell them, I never knew you. Depart from Me, you who work iniquity.

Can you know a lot about Jesus, yet not know Him? Yep. I did for years. How do we fix it? John said, If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us the sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we havent sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us. (1 John 1:710 WEB). We sin, we ask for forgiveness, and He cleanses us from it.

Dont take your relationship with God for granted. I have seen many marriages end because a spouse began to think they would always be married no matter how they behaved. That is deception. You had better love them and treat them like you would like to be treated, if you want to keep them.

In the same way, Jesus said Not everyone who says to me, Lord, Lord, will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven (Matthew 7:20-21 WEB). Your actions speak louder than words. Meaning to do something for years, just means that you havent. God loves us, but our response is to live a life pleasing to Him. Here are some notes about marriages, and our coming marriage to Jesus:

It is not once saved, always saved no more than once married, always married. This is an ongoing relationship and you need to keep that fire burning. When you mess up, be quick to ask for forgiveness. Admit being wrong, it is ok. Tell them that you love them every day. Dont let your eyes wander where they should not. Watch your mouth because what comes out of it, you cant call back. Be nice.

Rekindle the fire. Dont stop learning about Jesus. Dont let the fire die. Dont grow cold. Get serious. Keep praying, keep on pressing in. Yes, it is hard sometimes, but life is short when compared to eternity. Do not become a vaccinated Christian that is immune to His presence when He is standing right in front of you.

Prayer: Father God, forgive me of my sins, wash me clean and deliver me. Come into my heart Lord and guide me into a deeper personal relationship with You. I want to know You Lord. I want more of You. I want to really know You and not just about You, in the name of Jesus I pray.
