Christianity isn’t progressing the way Jesus called it to. Why? He wants Christians who “want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead (Philippians 3:10-11).” He wants us to not only know His love for us, but love Him back! Today’s Christians go to church. They bring friends to Sunday school. They read their Bible. They do not, however, apply what they learn and read to their life. They go home from church and give in to the sins that they had just learned how to fight. They pray, but do not listen for God’s answers. Their schedules may be devoted to Christ, but their heart’s aren’t. If Christianity was progressing the way Jesus called it to, we would all be JESUS LOVERS! We wouldn’t be allies of Jesus; we would be WARRIORS FOR JESUS! Are you an artificial Christian, or are you a Jesus devotee?
