Are we living in a confused society ? Is our mind on the things of God or the things of the world ?

Praising God in one breath and cussing someone or something  in the next !  Praying for his help, love and guidance, asking him to show us the way to live and act . Praying for salvation and healing for our loved ones. Then get drunk ,or cuss out your neighbors. Is there anything wrong in that scenario?

Is it so hard to give it all to Jesus Christ ? Gods word tells us how to live and if we live a life that strives to be the way he has planned for us he will give us the power we need. Peter walked with him , saw every miracle he preformed.” Yet” Jesus said to Peter ” Get behind me Satan ” he actually called him ” Satan ” the reason was Peter was setting his mind on things of the man and not of God.  (Mark 8: 27-32 ESV)

Jesus continued in this manner ! ( Mark 8: 34-38 ) 34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him (AU)deny himself and (AV)take up his cross and follow me. 35 For (AW)whoever would save his life[d] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake (AX)and the gospel’s will save it. 36 (AY)For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul? 37 For (AZ)what can a man give in return for his soul? 38 For (BA)whoever is ashamed of me and of my words in this (BB)adulterous and sinful generation, of him will the Son of Man also be ashamed (BC)when he comes in the glory of his Father with (BD)the holy angels.”

I do believe we have a calling on our life , a destiny to full fill. We will walk in it or walk away from it. God is not a dictator he gives us free choice how we want to live. He wants us to love him so much we are willing to give up all things of the world to live for him. The heart of a willing child of God is precious to him.    Image
