Don't try to please people,that's a sure way to fail God.You cannot serve two masters.Don't compare yourself with other people.If you know what God requires of you,do it.Don't start to compare with other Christians who aren't doing it and justify yourself by that.
What if they are just being stubborn to God?Are you also going to do the same just because they are also Christians?or because they are your Pastor?or because they are your Pastor's wife?or because they are people you hold in high esteem?
Do not let your preaching posts be determined by how many likes you will get.Don't let your preaching in church be determined by how many people will be shouting "amen".Let it be determined by the Holyspirit.Do it even if no one is willing to listen.Do it even though it may make everyone hate you.Do it as long as it makes God happy.
It is impossible to keep your eyes on people and on Jesus at the same time.
Another very important thing that the Lord has emphasized to me is TO MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS.
Do not talk about other people,The only accuser is satan.He is the only one who rejoices when a christian falls.He is the only one who is always looking for a fault.
But it's really sad that for many, the church has become a gossip place where Christians talk about the faults of other people and think they are more righteous than everyone else.This makes the Lord really sad,He has told me about this alot of times.It doesn't make Him happy when His children do this.
If someone is in the wrong,correct them and pray for them.But do not begin to talk about them to other people.
God counts it as gossip.Do not judge a sinner,but show them the Love of Jesus.
These are the Lord's words on this," Do not judge anyone. I am the only judge. But you must warn everyone, so they can make their own decision. Tell them the truth.Even just gossip can lead you to hell. Do not talk about your brothers and sisters in the lord. Don’t talk about anyone. Mind your own business. If you see someone in the wrong, talk to them about it and pray for them "
The third thing that's really important for every Christian is this;Do NOT BECOME SELF RIGHTEOUS.
Do not become self righteous and see everyone else as candidates of hell.Do not ever think you are better than everyone else or you are a better Christian than everyone else because for as long as you are thinking this,know that in reality you aren't.
You are only self righteous and proud.You do not have the Love of Jesus that will draw a sinner to repentance.
It's so sad because i see this so many times.If you are doing this,know that if the rapture happens right now,you cannot enter heaven because even if you may not see it that way,that's pride.It will only chase away the people you were supposed to preach to and bring to Christ.It is not the Holy Spirit making you do this. You need to repent and ask God to change you because self righteousness will not get you anywhere with God.
Most importantly,you need to be born again.You need to be born of Spirit.Only the Holy Spirit can bring you to true repentance.The Holy Spirit must live inside of you.
Matthew 23:26 " Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also"
It must begin with you being born of Spirit,It begins with an inner transformation and it will always reflect on the outside too.
If you look like a Christian to everyone, but are full of sin inside,you aren't born again yet.
Until God lives inside of you,you are not born again.And when God lives in you,the transformation is evident.There will be no room for darkness in your life.God's Spirit will transform you to what He requires.
If you haven't received Christ in your heart yet,You can do it right now.Ask Him tome into your life and change you.
REPENT,JESUS IS COMING BACK VERY SOON.
