The Fine Print

…many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophecy… cast out demons…and do many deeds of power in your name…? Then I will declare to them I never knew you… you evildoers. Matthew 7:22-29  Clearly, what we see and or hear rarely tells the full story. We sometimes go through life either not recognizing or forgetting to read the fine print and fall victim to judging a book by its cover. Yet, rest assured no one fools God. God has given us the gift of the Spirit to be used in many ways, prophecy, healing, teaching, preaching etc. Along with those gifts, God has given the gift of praise so that anything we do according to the gifts God has given is done to the glory of his name. The gift of the Holy Spirit is not to be abused. So, let us continually examine ourselves and go humbly before the Lord and work in order that the content of what God sees on the inside reveals the full story of a foundation that is in Christ and not go forth merely as a cover for the world. For God is always reading the fine print.

    • All praise to God – Yes, I certainly am catching myself to remember that there is always something on the inside. Although I realize I won’t always know everything. The blessing is that God knows what’s within us and He is still willing to be gracious to us if we sincerely call upon his name. Peace and Blessings, my sister.
