Many believers today are not that deeply rooted in their experience of God. They are “comfort’ or “convenience’ Christians, following Jesus only when it’s convenient to do so. They seem unwilling to sacrifice anything, or to put themselves out in any way for the Lord. Nothing really counts for eternity in their lives.
But God is beginning to change all that. The rising tide of persecution, the pressure from governments and the seduction of this world all bear down on those who are half-hearted in their love for Christ. The weight is too much for them and many fall away from the faith.
God is exposing the make-believers and the easy-believers. Those who are not serious about Him will never make it through these difficult days. Christians who are looking for a convenient rather than a conviction life-style will not stand up to the tests that are coming to us as we face increasing level of persecution of our faith here in Europe. But those who take hold of God and stir themselves to seek Him with all their hearts will find Him.
Let me ask you a question. Where do you stand in all this? Are you passionate about Him? Does all that you want centre on Him? He is calling you deeper. If you hear Him and turn to Him, making Him number one in your life, you will be completely astounded how He will reveal Himself to you. And you will come to experience Him in a new and deeper way.
