Do you hear the voice of One calling? Or is the only voice that can save you drowned out by the voice of the world?
Who speaks louder, Christ or the world? For many the world is louder…and the world is the voice that matters most.
If this world truly had a voice it would be the voice of Satan. God told us that the path is narrow and few find it. The road to destruction however is wide and easily traveled. The broad road of destruction is the world’s road, and most are on it.
The Bible says deny yourself, the world says grab it all…take everything you can get.
The Bible says homosexuality is wrong and is forbidden. The world says its no big deal, to each there own, it’s just another lifestyle.
The Bible says we cannot have any other god before Adonai, the world says all gods are good, except that God of the Christians.
The bible says Jesus Christ is the only way to God, the world says sure He is one way, there are others.
Ever heard it said the majority rules? That is society in general especially today. If you can get enough people to accept a new idea, it will become the norm. How has the world done this?
Take the Bible and what it tells us, the commandments of God and how we are to live etc. These things use to mean something, now the way of God means nothing to many. The world has indoctrinated the masses into this belief. How has this been done? The biggest way that the influence of the world has changed how people see God is by getting people to view themselves differently.
In God’s eyes we are here to serve Him and glorify Him…that is our main objective in life. Now the world comes along with it’s many anti-God theologians and says, “that’s not true, YOU deserve better than that”. The most important thing in life…is YOU. Forget all that humble serving crap, serve yourself, you are worth it baby!
Think about all the add slogans over the years, they are more and more geared to people serving themselves and getting what they want as fast as they can get it!
Treat yourself; you deserve it
You’re worth it baby!
There is only one you!
Give yourself the best; you earned it!
You work hard for your money; use how you like!
How about sporting events in the schools? Everybody gets a trophy and a ribbon. There are no losers anymore, well I’m sorry but someone does win, and someone does lose. The world just constantly bombards us with the message that the most important thing is self, nice guys finish last. The happiest guy or gal, well that is the one that has all the toys, or has all the latest fashions and accessories. You know the one that has that fabulous house, money and vacations etc?
Did you know that many people who “have it all” are absolutely miserable inside? Did you know that some of the loneliest people in the world are the ones with enormous wealth? Do you realize that many super popular people really feel inadequate inside? How about the ones who are busy keeping up with the Joneses? Many people actually feel empty inside, if you asked them and they were honest…they would tell you they do not feel like they have a purpose in life.
Look at the world around you, the state of today’s world has a direct correlation to the new god of this world that reigns supreme…and it is NOT Satan. Oh no, Satan himself has ordained this new god, his name is…self. You see, Satan gets a lot more mileage out of selfishness then he does anything else.
Time is short; there really is not a lot of it left. Listen to the voice of One calling today and submit yourself to Him today. If you can read this and think so what, well it may be too late for you already, God will not strive with man forever. In fact, you do not know when your last day is, and given current events, you do not know how much time you have here on earth.
