A LOVING CALL TO BACKSLIDERS
How’s life? You know, GOD loves you and He understands your struggles. I understand you somehow because I have also reached the point where you are now, lukewarm, weakened, and honestly backslidden, gone far off from the will of the LORD. I have experienced stumbling and like David of the Old Testament, I seemed to have lost the joy of my salvation (Psalm 51). I started doing things which infidel would do. I couldn’t take it any longer, so I went back to the LORD who once suffered for me. Then I realized that no true child of GOD enjoys this spiritual condition.
If you are a true brother or sister in Christ, I know you have the same feeling. There’s agony inside you. When did HE come short of HIS Love for you, and what are HIS shortcomings? HE’s just so faithful and true. Come, join me! Let us praise and serve HIM who is Alive! Prove that you are a real Christian, turn away from your sins and keep ablaze the fire of love which you promised the first time you came to CHRIST (Revelation 2:4). Stop counting the failures that you had made, and start refreshing yourself with GOD’s abiding Love and Faithfulness. (Please read Jeremiah 3: 22; Hosea 14: 4; Revelation 2:2 and Philippians 3: 14)
But if you are living like those who never known CHRIST, and there’s almost no trace of being a true Christian in you, you mar the name of CHRIST and bring shame to HIS church. You are committing another dreadful sin of crucifying HIM again and putting HIM to open shame (Hebrews 6:6). Even if you profess to be like a sheep, be careful that at the end, GOD will spew you out for being such a goat, an impostor, claiming to be what you are not!
But don’t forget, GOD still loves you inspite of who you are. Get down on your knees and pray for forgiveness. GOD will surely accept you, just give yourself anew! Allow HIM to reign as Savior and LORD! Start all over again and live a life of change. Prove you’re genuine, not pretending, then make a firm stand for CHRIST!
