Losing Life to Find New Life

He said I am “THE WAY, THE TRUTH, THE LIFE” That is saying something, he did not say I AM CHRISTIAN FOLLOW ME, He said, LEAVE ALL YOU HAVE AND FOLLOW ME, he did not say to take with us beliefs and lies which the world follows, He said, “Hethat findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” (Matthew 10:39).

I ask how in the world do you find a life unless you knew that the life you think you have is not the one to have? Moreover, I ask how do you lose a life to find another unless the thought is that the life you have is not the one to have?

What does this all mean? It means is that some (not all) will begin to question their walk and seek out newness of life; thus “finding” new life. However, when finding new life somethings are not profitable there; that is, old beliefs and mindsets, thus, one must “lose their life” or get rid of habits and other forms of ungodliness. This is what Yahweh wants us to see, that the new life is not the same old “Sunday Sermon”

Here’s the premise, ” And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God. For I say , through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think ; but to think soberly , according as God hath dealt to every man the measure of faith.” (Romans 12:2-3).

Thinking soberly, requires us to take on new sight and see things other than what we think we know. Some of us would rather hold on to this superficial ideals rather than learn to reason, and learn how to think past what we see. In this instance then soberly would mean to think with “sound mind.” There’s the key, because thinking soundly would require someone to ask questions about what they hear; rather than sitting there year after year accepting these messages that seem to get you there but are pushing and peddling goods.

I am blessed if I pay tithes, I am blessed when I get a new job, buy a shiny new truck, new house, maid, chauffeur, and, this might be true if I have gotten in honest aspiration; however for some all this thinking does is lower people’s self esteem when they are doing all they can to do what the word says.The question then becomes: What happened to you? Aren’t you good enough?

Not sound thinking, and not of Yahweh!

People are vain and arrogant! Have turned the word of Yahweh into a fallacy!

People are believing these lies, who doesn’t want money, who doesn’t want the good life? That’s why everyone believes it and people are getting rich because no one questions it.

What this looks like it that I am not good enough and some one else is because I have problems and they don’t. That is a lie from the pits of hell!

Stay there if you want to but I am coming out with a changed mind! See ya!
