Consistent in Commitment
I Peter 5:8-9

The Christian life is a battle between the Christ in you and the forces of darkness without. But lots of My children act like itís supposed to be nothing more than one long party. Christians hop from one exciting conference to the next to get a spiritual buzz on Glory Mountain. They tend to forget that many of their brothers and sisters are down in the valley below, waging war with an enemy that hates them and is out to destroy them.

Itís one thing to do sporadic good deeds to brighten the life of another believer. You get credit even for that. And itís easy to make a commitment to others to always be there for them to hold up their weary hands and pray for them. But how many good intentions ever translate into action, especially consistent action?

I expect consistency from My people, not just sweet emotion. The devil is certainly consistent about attacking you, but you havenít always had the prayer support or love you need from My Body to prevail over him, so you end up wondering why you suffer defeat time and again in various areas of your life. Some of you have gone weeks, months or even years without being edified by another believer! My people find it easy to serve one another in love so long as it never inconveniences them.

Even imperfect body parts can survive so long as blood flows to them. Take your hand as an example. How long would it live if lifeblood flowed through it only intermittently? It is only because of My merciful grace that I can make you survive and thrive in a lonely spiritual wilderness not of your own choosing. I the Head of the Church must take up the slack for disobedient members of My own Body, members who are self-centered and unwilling to go the extra mile to share My Love with a hurting saint.

Many precious saints I dearly love have turned back to the world because every time they looked for support from My Body all they got was a cold rebuff which made them feel ashamed for admitting they couldnít face the onslaughts of the enemy all alone.

Self-reliance has no place in our warfare against the devil. Even an earthly army has enough sense to know they canít win unless they all pull together.

O isn`t this just the word we need to hear at this time! It is `party-time` for the world - our time to party will come in heaven! "Pray without ceasing" - the brethren first then the lost...what good is a weak army! How grateful I am to know I have Christian brother`s and sister`s praying for me daily - "Lord give us a prayer burden for Your weak ones" Amen.
