Jesus The Christ is the answer to the world today, yesterday and forever. Thankyou God for loving the world so much you sent us your only begotten Son. This message is to those who recieve the revelation in your heart.
Oh Lord I must tell them to beware of the spirit of Jezebel that is among the Servants of God. Most of the time it is within arms length. Posing as support, but really the art of sabotage is at hand. Beware of the in-laws they really should be called out laws because they are trying to turn the hearts of the spiritually naive against you. Who am I talking to? I'm talking to the one who has recieved what the Lord has given you, has showed you the direction He wants you to take, and has prepared you for such a time as this to go forth in the Gospel of Jesus Christ according to "The Gifts" in you.
I'm talking to the one who is always right at the door of blessing and manifesting ones destiny, but chooses to be distracted by the same sensual vioce every time and then you are further away and having to start again.
Humble yourself. I say Humble yourself to The ways of the Lord. Stop trying to prove your ministry to man, and become the vessel God wants you to be. Let God fight your battles for now and out! Don't argue, don't curse, don't prove your point, don't even raise your voice ever again. Let God prove you, let Him fight your battles. He will turn your enemies into your footstool. The only way the devil can come at you or get you is when he gets you to respond, or act on his level.
When you are arguing with him, he's got you! When you raise your voice to him, get upset and out of control, he's got you. Proclaim the Word of God and believe it. That's it. Then move on and do what God wants you to do. Stay around and with only those who have a hunger and thirst for the Lord and His Righteousness. When you are constantly around those who are luke-warm you do yourself an injustice. Read the gospel more. Make Jesus your role-model. Don't worry about the nay-sayers who will say "What do you think your perfect?"
Last but not least I beg you not to feel you are holy and others are sinners. The Love of Christ Jesus must be in you so much until your responses to evil are Jesus-like and from your heart. If you happen to mess up, which you will from time to time; Go to the person you sinned against and ask them for forgiveness before you get on your knees to pray to God. Love of Christ Jesus be with you all forever.

Jared, I'm a woman, but I read your article anyway.You apparently are trying to encourage men to get serious about spiritual growth.
Your article is too general and abstract, but it could be your outline for a more in-depth article. It seems that you could expand on each sentence, making it into a separate article. If you want to do this, you could think of your original sentence as the main idea of your article. Give examples. Use anecdotes as illustrations. Explain exactly what you mean, and how someone you admire applied the principle in a specific situation. Try to tone down the preaching and amplify the inspiration. Most people respond better to spiritual enticement than they do to prodding.
Somewhere I read a meditation about Jesus' good shephard metaphore. It described the way middle eastern shephards work, saying that they lead the sheep. Americans often are unmoved by the good shephard analogy, because we think of shepharding the way it is done here: poking at the sheep with a stick and sending dogs to yelp and nip at the sheep's feet. How much more attractive is the shephard who leads by enticement!
