God Speaks & I Obey

In a quiet moment today, God spoke to me and this is what He told me to write.

We don't "accept" Christ.  He calls us and we follow.

1 Corinthians 2:14 ~ The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned.

We can only hear and understand the Truth if the Holy Spirit reveals it to us.  Our desire to follow Jesus has nothing to do with us.  There is nothing within us that even comes close to wanting to follow a Holy God.  To live a selfless life.

You may say that you aren't ready to "give your life to Christ" because you would have to give up the things you love and enjoy.  What you don't understand is that when God chooses you, your desire is to serve Him.  Those things you love so much (sin), you will no longer have a desire for.

The ONLY way we decide we are going to follow Jesus and give Him all of us is with His prompting.

  1. TOTALLY agree!!!!! You said it very well here!!! I very much disagree with trying to get people to "accept" the Lord.If you are trying to talk them into it,they don't have the spirit to be ABLE to accept Him at that moment.We don't choose him.He chooses us!!!!
