Hello everyone! This is final part of the double dose for today. This is not related to The Genesis Story. It is a very important topic we as Christians must talk about- God or gods.
In Ghana presently, there are many people who say that they are for Christ on Sundays but the rest of the week, they are for gods. This is very ironic and should not be the case; unfortunately, it is.
There are so many political leaders who in their various churches are church Elders, Deacons or Deaconesses; however, they are the most corrupt people. Why is this happening? Have Christians lost their perspective and focus? This has been a topic that has been in my heart and on my mind for a very long time. I just do not seem to understand this trend.
Must there be a force driving us before we do the right thing? This shouldn’t be. Our Father has given us the option and the free will to choose Him. Are we saying that God’s decision was wrong? There are a lot of Christians who do not have their heart, mind and spirit in check. So the heart and the mind do one thing, whilst the spirit does another. The important question here is to find a way to sync all these three parts.
Ideally, we are to meditate on the Bible to be able to achieve this. However, a lot of people are not making time to read the Bible. They come up with all sorts of excuses to take that up. How can we change this? We could use audio Bibles in our cars. If you cannot spend time reading, you can spend time listening. This is because what we read, what we see and what we hear directly feed our spirit, mind and heart. The excuses must stop! There is a way out for everything! The great thing about this walk with God is that there is no right formula. This means that you must find what works for you. If you cannot read, then listen. If you cannot read or listen, then watch. Make this relationship with God personal and unique; it has to be what suites you. Do not look at someone else and want to copy them.
One problem we have as Christians is “envy and jealousy.” A lot of Christians want what others have instead of celebrating the success with the person. We have developed scheming characters. We are always plotting for someone else’s downfall so that we can have what they have. This is wrong. God has blessed each and every one of us according to what we can handle. You see someone with all those things that you wish for; do you know what they are going through? Do you know what they have gone through? There are many of us who use all of our God- given resources to fight for someone else’s assignment or blessing. In the end, they feel empty and sad. That’s because God did not choose you to do that specific thing or gain that specific thing because He knows that it can harm you. Why have Christians taken thins into our own hands?

This is just an introduction to this issue. Watch out for more on this. I hope that as we uncover more on this issue, the Holy Spirit would help us to find solutions to the issues raised in this piece. God bless.
