@GCCofJesus is a great dude with a great topic here on jackalopekid.com–“Halloween”// buwahaaaaa. It’s happening soon, so what are your thoughts on this?
Why is it that everyone spends so much time and effort in preparing for Halloween?
Why is it that everyone spends so much time and effort in preparing for Halloween? It’s simple everyone enjoys the spooky holiday.
Everyone likes to do different things throughout their life as individuals, but we all have one thing in common and that is we all like to do stuff we enjoy.
Take reading a book or watching a T.V show for an example, if you are interested in a particular book or show you most likely will want to continue reading or watching to the end.
With that being said, if we voluntary participate in the activities we enjoy then we must ask ourselves a few questions.
Why is it that we profess to be followers of Christ Jesus, but don’t participate in fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ?
Do we not truly understand what it is to be followers of Christ?
Are we stretched to so thin by the activities of our individual lives that we have forsaken Christ and allowed the things of this world to come before the creator of this world?
Or could it be that our personal agendas give us more enjoyment than seeing souls saved and lives changed by taking our part in fulfilling God’s plan?
Those are some tough questions to ask ourselves, but are very important to fulfilling the Great Commission of Jesus Christ.
First of all if you desire to make an impact for Christ and to see souls saved and lives changed around you, then you must identify your position in life and you must determine what your priorities are. Is God number one in your life? Or do you set Him aside to when you only need Him?
God desires us to walk with Him and talk with Him to experience true joy and happiness. The activities of this life will soon fade away, and the enjoyment is only temporary. God offers us an eternal life full of joy, which is available to all who believe in Jesus.
We must start focusing on what God has called us to do and set aside the things of this world that waste our time and effort. I wonder what would happen if the men and women of God would put the same amount of effort and time into doing God’s will as much as we put into our so called “fun” activities of this life that are just plainly a waste of time?
