RECENTLY, an advertisement popped up that read “Date Someone Who Care!” Apparently the people running this ad had tapped into the obvious fact that most American unmarried people are full of self and therefore could care less about anyone else except themselves (2 Timothy 3:1-7).
If you are truly born again and unmarred, I also exhort you to 1) truly repent and lay down your life afresh – deny yourself, take up your cross daily and follow Jesus, and 2) date someone who is equally yoked and therefore cares for God and others before themselves – a true Christian.
SUNDAY: LISTEN to who preaches the cross and who refuses to. Therein you will see the true/false. Christ will not remain/abide in the individual life where there is no dying to self.
“And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” Galatians 5:24
The daily cross is Jesus’ instruction, desire, and imperative – regardless of the fact that few who claim to be representing Him ever preach this paramount Gospel truth (Luke 9:23-24).
