Superficial Christians

Updated: Oct 9


I've grown sick and tired of the same routine. Go to church, hear the Word, fellowship with the saints. Gather your thoughts and go back home, alone, unchanged, the same sin ridden being that walked through the two wooden double doors earlier that day but hey it's not relationship it's religion, right? We lie to ourselves that our seat in heaven has already been booked and the righteousness we seek will be given to us because, didn't the bible say, 'blessed are the meek'? But once we leave the church grounds, face to face with the world we blend in, not seasoning this earth with salt, no we sweeten things up with some sugarcane! Representing Christ's name in vain! But what good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet lose their soul? Forfeit your crown for a blood drenched gown, and not a snow-white robe. We call ourselves Christians, but the only time we find the time to pick up our bible is virtually on our phone, and we all know the times we do read it, we’re always on our own! Glancing over our shoulder every now and then because you don’t want to get caught, you just want to blend in. Don’t wanna make a scene. I don’t want to be seen reading this ‘thing.’ And we own it! Let’s not pretend we don’t know it! Y’know the hard-back stuff, the sort of bible you’d hold under your arm, but now we parade through these streets unarmed. Secularization blinding us, blurring our perception on deception. Yet this is the realization, we’re not getting any salvation with our minds so cluttered up with our own contaminated inclination! From my own recollection, I don’t think any of us are going to experience any heavenly translation just like it tells us in 1 Thessalonians or the prophetic book of Revelations, whilst our determination is to set out there on our own, threading ground not even your mum knows about at home! Be a Christian who’s not ashamed to tell others about the only one person who can save you, if we let go of the lies and embrace the truth, my God tells me it can change you! Empower you! The blessings God wants to give you, tastes so good, makes you start licking your fingers like oxtail stew! It shelters you. Protects you. Don’t get deceived by the lies and the false hope this world wishes to give you! To be a Christian means forgetting about the foolishness and all your unnecessary issues and forever clinging unto the only one who is willing enough to save you, take you somewhere where sin, hurt and shame can’t chase you! My God said he is faithful, to give blessings pun blessings to those who know that he alone is able. So, stop playing church on the weekend, God wants Christians who won’t tend to bend their standard for any sort of friend. Blot out his name, to follow any kind of trend. So let me summarise this in only a few words, God wants a permanent Christian not a temporary one, hope you heard.
