It’s so disheartening seeing people with a very bright future taking up all the burden of life without putting God first.
The Bible confirmed it that, in all things we do, we should always put God first and others should follow. Most of the so called children of God are deviating from the ways and laws of God, they’re pursuing ephemeral things. Most students prefer studying their books than being in the presence of the Lord studying HIS words.
We have geniuses all around the world. Some pursue fame, intelligence, wealth, and all worldly things. Few choose the right path, they follow the path of the Lord. Without God, they have the belief that they’re nothing. This is just like a virus that can’t survive or exist outside a living cell(present in the host). What would a virus be in the absence of the host? It exists as a crystal(non living). This is exactly like the believers and lovers of Christ, we’re nothing without God. “God is our host”, we’re like the virus mentioned above. We can’t survive without God.
In everything we do, we’re expected to put God first. Doing this, things seem easy. Even, when others are saying there’s casting down, we will say there’s lifting up due to the fact that we’re in Christ Jesus. We have heard different testimonies of how miracles have been working for the children of God.
All that we learn on earth are only useful on earth.
We study, work, do all sort of things, these things are only needed on earth???? and we all know that things of this world are ephemeral. Then, why do we keep running after these things instead of being in the presence of God. Our first priority should be “heaven”. The only thing we study on earth that is useful after death is the Bible- it contains the word of God. Even, many of us know this, but we aren’t studying it as we study our books for exams. Bible contains the word of God. We get to know God’s words from the Bible. Things we should do or shouldn’t do to enter the kingdom of God are discussed in the Bible, how to overcome hardship, struggles, sins and so on are discussed in the Bible. Without studying the word of God, we can not know shortcuts to overcoming obstacles on our way to success. Through the Bible, we build up our faith in God. Do study the word of God.
Different scientists are known till date. They’re geniuses. Imagine, all what they know just disappeared after their death. Death erases all the knowns. Their brains are no more useful to themselves and to the world anymore. Those that believed in God would definitely be saved. Those that didn’t believe in God when they’re alive would end up in eternal destruction where there’s gnashing of teeth. What’s their essence of coming to the earth? You were not only created to acquire fame, be wealthy, but, you were created to be fruitful. Fruitful here means, “inviting the unbelievers to the kingdom of God”. This depicts fruitfulness. It means, you yield fruits during your season. Don’t be like an unfruitful tree which will be cut down and burnt into ashes due to its unfruitfulness.
I urge everyone reading this article to put God first in everything we do. And, let’s always be thankful of what we are, where we are and what we would be. A “true” reader of the Bible will always find things easy because through the Bible he/she reads, it’s been stated to always put God first, and putting this in practice really makes things easy for us because God would have cleared the uncleared roads for us. Even, while studying our books, if we find a part difficult to comprehend, let’s go back to the word of God, study it and pray, I assure you by the time you start studying your books again, God will have made it easy so that you will assimilate those difficult aspects of the topic. God first, and Others follow.
