The Two Sides Of A Dollar Bill

Words In Season:
The trouble with many of us today is that we are trying to believe without intending to obey.
     A. W. Tozer

Bearing:
"Thou therefore that teachest another, teachest thou not thyself? thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?
Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery, dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, doest thou commit sacrilege?"
           Romans 2:21 - 22

Bottomline:
Getting a bit tougher today. But the days are getting perilous by each day and The Groom is getting set. So we can't afford to take things lying low. We may change the approach, making it a bit softer and tender. But we just can't throw away the facts but face it. Not only for the purpose of being rapturable, as many posit but to enjoy the best of the blessings of our Lovely Holy Father, while occupying till He come. For those living right only because of rapture, supposing there is no rapture?
It means many of you will at a beer joint by now drinking yourself to stupor, a stick of cigar in your mouth and a half clad woman at your left hand. I leave your matter till another day.
We are speaking of a cordial relationship with a God Who loved us so much and want the best for us. A God Who fight all our battles leaving us to celebrate the manifold victories. Then ultimately take us to where He is, to live with Him for ever.
But your own motive of living right and holy is just for self preservation. To be on the safer side just in case of....? Therefore you need to climb a step higher. A higher ground of a loving relationship between a Father and His beloved submissive and obedient child.
When a son obeys his father all because he fears his cane and whippings, too bad for such a son. But when he does it out love, reverence, affection, passion to know and relate with Him more and more, the joy and blessings therein are simply unspeakable.
A. W. Tozer went further; "the message of the Cross contains two elements: 1).
Promises and declarations to be believed, and 2). Commandments to be obeyed. Obviously faith is necessary for to the first and obedience to the second"
The two goes hand in hands, like two sides of a dollar currency. Yea, faith and obedience.
To present a one sided dollar bill at a Bureau de change, is to risk a jail term.
Are you there on the excuse that some people live contrary to what they preach? Can't imagine a drowning man holding to a straw. Yield your life to Jesus today and be saved for your own good.
