TODAY'S MANNA for Friday July 16, 2021
Who’s Side Are You On?
Seek (inquire for and require) good and not evil that you may live, and so the Lord, the God of hosts, will be with you, as you have said. Hate the evil and love the good and establish justice in the [court of the city's] gate. It may be that the Lord, the God of hosts, will be gracious to the remnant of Joseph [the northern kingdom].
Amos 5:14-15 Amplified Bible
THOUGHTS ABOUT TODAY'S VERSE...
Who’s Side Are You On?
It’s not, is God on your side, but rather are you on God’s side? A whole bunch of folks claim that God is on their side, and He truly wants to be. In reality, what's more important, is whether we are on God's side, since God doesn't take sides! He is No respecter of persons. Whether or not we are on God’s side is determined more by what we seek and do rather than what we say we believe. For the proof is in the doing not the saying! For what you seek and do truly reveals what you really believe, not what you are saying you believe. "For by their fruit shall you know them." God longs to be with us, but He will not sacrifice His character to extend us cheap grace, a grace that does not call us to be like Him. He's looking for believers who put their character, their actions and their lifestyle where their mouth is through what they do, not just what they say they believe. It’s easy to say you love God and are a Christian, but does your walk prove it? OR do you just go to church once in a while and pretend to be a Christian (Christ-like). He's looking for people who will believe what He says in His Word and live the lifestyle everyday that He has described for us, not what we want, not what the world says we should do. Not with ungodly, immoral and unethical lifestyles, and not by condoning such behavior in others under the pretense of loving everyone, but with Godly character and lifestyle will you honor God. Do you live and walk the talk or just talk the talk? Talk is cheap!
Most Holy God. Your righteousness and Holiness are beyond me and my ability to attain. Yet I long, Father, to be more like You in every way possible. Jesus told Philip, "If you've seen Me, you've seen the Father". Let me see the presence of Jesus, and know that Your presence is with me as I seek You and Your character in my life. Through Jesus, my Righteousness, I pray.
