Lack of the Lord God in their life and in the life of others

Billy Graham in one of his messages said, "The evil in a person is not due to his financial condition or lack of education, for I have found civilised and rich people also committing the same sins as those of underdeveloped nations,
the main reason is the lack of Jesus in their lives"

Jesus once said...

"For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lewdness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness. All these evil things come from within and defile a man. Mark 7:21-23 (NKJV)

To be what God wants us to be we need to change from within, this applies to us and also to them for whom we pray.

If we carefully look into our life and also the life of those whom we deal with, we can find that many hurtful habits and attitudes are mainly the result of the lack of the Lord God in their lives, and if they had known God and known His goodness, they would have truly repented and would have left their sinful habits and hurtful attitudes.

So, the most urgent need of the hour is Jesus Christ in the life of all and this will result in changed life making life blessed for all and this can be achieved only by evangelising.

Thus, when we take time to judge ourselves and others and try to mark out the sinful dark areas of life, let's remember that they are basically due to lack of the Lord God in our life and in the life of others.

While the absence of God brings all the evil habits as mentioned in Mark 7:21-23, the presence of God does this to us....

"You will show me the path of life;
In Your presence is fullness of joy;
At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore." Psalms 16:11 (NKJV)

God wants us to be blessed and this can happen only with Him within us, let's invite Him into our lives and let Him lead us in eternal blessedness always.


God Bless,
Abraham
