Singing and composing hymns and other songs have been part of my life since my teenage days
11. Act the Same Way
It is being said by marriage counselors that those who think they are not ready to leave their spinsterhood and bachelorhood ways should not adventure to get married, this is because marriage involves you leaving your spinsterhood and bachelorhood positions, you need to leave the way you are thinking and be ready to incorporate your partner’s ways, views, plans among others into your ways. This is because you have ceased to be single, you are now two though one. The two people who come together to become one have come from different backgrounds, which must be incorporated into all we are doing if we want to make our living and romantic involvement with each other to work and become an enviable one for all and sundry.
So anyone who is yet acting the same way, having no view of the future and what they want to become would not have their lives transformed. Five out of the ten virgins continue to act the same way while waiting for their groom and they were disappointed that their unchanged attitudes and actions could not give them anything as they were unable to enter with the groom when he arrived because they were not prepared. (Matt. 25:1-13)
12. The Same Believe
Jesus indeed comes to the world to reveal whom God is to the entire world. in the process of revealing whom God is, we have nowhere read that he says God has said that those who know him would not be blessed. However, many of the ancient preaching have suggested this to the brethren and because of this we have missed greatly. We need to change this orientation of ours, leave the thought that Christians could not be blessed. It is the rain that is falling on the unbelievers that is falling on believers, why should ours be different?
“That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.” (Mat 5:45)
God has given the entire human race whether a believer or non-believer a level playing ground as per what we can become in the world if we can think deeply and stop entertaining wrong beliefs in our hearts.
To make progress we need to check through the scriptures and stop basking on the philosophies and teachings of some people but should check the bibles ourselves for in her Jesus says we have eternal life.
“Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.” (Joh 5:39)
In the bible we have peace, in the bible we know the minds of God for us, in the bible we have new and correct focus. But we have been denied this because many teachers and preachers have been trying to ram down our thoughts their own mentality, perspectives to life, which is not totally in tandem with the will of God. Mentality, upbringing of a person is not sacrosanct as if to mean tit should generally be applicable to all and sundry in faith. Therefore, we have to have another belief and this could come if we really checked through the scriptures, through her we shall know the mind of God for us and would not be left behind in the cauldron of darkness in the world.
Think about Jehovah Elohim for a second, he was supremely operating before, but he was unable to achieve his aim of redeeming and bringing men, us, back to himself because people dread and feared him, he is a no nonsense God who would strike anyone who fumbles dead immediately, therefore people prefer to send emissaries, representatives to him, having seen that his utmost goal has neither been scored nor attained he decides to come as our friend, he came to lay down his life for us all and when this was done, he hits the target, through this those of us, at the uttermost part of the world have been brought into his kingdom. (John 15:13 ff; 1 John 3:16; rev. 5:5)
To achieve our aim, to score our goal, we need to change our disposition, we need to change our ways of life and living, we need to stop recycling those things not bringing us progress and toe a new path, we above all need to give our lives to Jesus Christ to experience those needed changes in our lives…. If we do this we shall witness the changes our hearts desire, but if we are recalcitrant and continue with our former ways of lives and living we shall keep experiencing what we have been experiencing ages before now.
