Father God, we come to you today in the Name of Jesus Christ. I ask you to please protect me and this listener, our families, our career, the company we work at, our marriage, our children, our home, our yard under the blood of Jesus Christ. We thank you God, in Jesus Christ Name we pray. Amen.
My husband has a caller identity app on his cellphone which shows you the company’s name that is calling you. He called me over and showed me the one call he had missed on his cellphone. The caller identity app showed it as: The Satanic Temple. We were both shocked to see this because we love Jesus Christ and our lives have been given to Him. He is our Lord and Saviour. But this made me think. Why did this religion group called? Why are they reaching out?
In Luke 17:20-21 it stands: The Pharisees asked Jesus when the kingdom of God would come. He answered them, “People can’t observe the coming of the kingdom of God. They can’t say, ‘Here it is!’ or ‘There it is!’ You see, the kingdom of God is within you.”
So what or whom is this Kingdom of God?
Joh 14:16-17 I will ask the Father, and he will give you another helper who will be with you forever. That helper is the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept him, because it doesn’t see or know him. You know him, because he lives with you and will be in you.
The Kingdom of God is the Holy Spirit, is Jesus Christ.
Gal 4:6-7 Because you are God’s children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into us to call out, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer slaves but God’s children. Since you are God’s children, God has also made you heirs.
The reason why this religious group of the Satanic Temple might have called, is to proclaim what they believe in. Just like any other religion group out there, they proclaim what they believe in. We as children of God, what we do and what we talk, is it proclaiming Jesus Christ? Are we putting the Kingdom of God first? Our motives for what we do, is it to promote the Kingdom of God? Because this is exactly what other religion groups do. They stand up for what they believe in. They go out and proclaim what they believe in. Why are we so afraid as Christians to proclaim Jesus? Because we have come to a point where we love our lives, more than Jesus Christ. We have come to the point where we love our work more than Jesus Christ. We are afraid to talk about Jesus Christ at work because we are afraid of persecution and losing our job.
Are we true to ourselves as Christians?
Are how you live or what you do for the Kingdom of God or to hold onto what you have or to build your own empire?
