When we're bold, wise, and humble enough to let God totally have His way, we have just aroused the most powerful and effective procedure to keep the Devil totally out of our way!
But he gives us even more
grace to stand against such
evil desires. As the Scriptures
“God opposes the proud
but favors the humble.”
So humble yourselves before God.
Resist the devil, and he will flee
from you. Come close to God, and
God will come close to you. Wash your
hands, you sinners; purify your hearts,
for your loyalty is divided between
God and the world. Let there be tears
for what you have done. Let there be
sorrow and deep grief. Let there be
sadness instead of laughter, and gloom
instead of joy. Humble yourselves
before the Lord, and he will lift you
up in honor.
In the world system, pride, strife, and contention are loudly applauded and regarded as necessary traits to becoming a success and a role model. But glory to God that though we're in this world, we're not part of the corrupt and evil system, but set apart to impart the life of Jesus Christ.
The blind can lead the blind alright, but surely into a dark ditch! The most effective way to lead the world out of its gloom, darkness, and doom is through our personal experience with God. To the measure we're full of God, it's to that same measure we can influence the ungodly.
The more submissive and closer we draw to God, the more grace, influence, and convicting power we'll transfer into the world. We must die to self and selfish motives to become untouchable by the Devil and his imps, and then we can reflect Jesus Christ powerfully.
Let's endeavour to live the life of Christ in order to make our message of Christ most effective! It's impossible to love God without loving people and God's work to people. Christ died for people. We're saved and still alive all because of people.
Let's therefore bear every cost to take the incredible fullness of our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ to a world full of disheartened, disputatious, and confused people. You're God's chosen vessel, and you can do it, glory to God!
Lk.10:1-3; Jn.17:13-26; Mk.16; 15-20.
Have a marvelous day in God's awesome presence.

Rev Steve says....
"The blind can lead the blind alright, but surely into a dark ditch!
Personally, I think you should say that the Chameleon can lead the blind alright, but surely into bankruptcy by bleeding their bank accounts dry in the name of the Lord.
For instance, let me tell you of a story that I know all about. There was a woman from who met one of these Chameleon Preachers online, was deceived into falling in love with him, then she traveled to Africa thinking love and marriage where in the air. Next thing her bank account is bled dry while the so-called Preacher is using her money to buy bling and other material possessions for himself. Living the good life that he hadn't been able to fulfill with his phony website to get people to donate to him.
What do you think about that true story Rev. Steve. You think our Lord and Savior Jesus will be standing at the gates to Heaven and be pleased that a child of his went to such efforts to rob a helpless woman of her money?
Maybe you can enlighten us with your thoughts about such a horrible deception.
