Ever notice how some people are so enthusiastic about joining in on some non-religious events to the point that they are willing to make certain sacrifices to be there? Ever wonder how our GOD (speaking to those who do love and believe in GOD and His son Jesus now) must think about that?
Giving thought to this while looking at the parade for Thanksgiving day past, I saw many people outside enjoying themselves while watching the parade. I just wondered why some of us who do love GOD and believe in His son JESUS are not as enthusiastic, or hide our faith from the people around us, don’t bond together and give praise openly, or are afraid to pray for the past lives we have had.
And this is not to say that I don’t like a nice parade, because I do. This is why I watch them. But when a Pastor had said even about the super bowl football games…you will see people dressed in clothing of their team. Some will even paint their skins the colors of their team sacrificing the cold weather conditions and health related ailments that will come from all of this to support the team of their choice.
Our GOD sees all we do, and to think all of the people of the world HE watched over all and knows our hearts like these people that are here in these pictures. He knows what we do and have done in our lives. GOD sent His son JESUS to be our savior , the key to the Kingdom of GOD where we all can one day see our GOD smiling at us when we are their in HIS house. Praising HIM, seeing the face of JESUS before us smiling too saying welcome home, job well done.
Just to think, every person to live after Adam and Eve that walked the face of this earth GOD does know about. We can not hide what we do, never. We can not out smart GOD, and think if you do this where no one will see you, no one will know. But that’s the thing, it is mentioned in Genesis chapter one about creation
Genesis Chapter 1:2
“And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters.”
So…..seeing that GOD was forming the earth and there was darkness….HE CAN SEE what we do even if we can not see HIM.
But there is light now that was made for the earth, and we can see it.
“And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.”
I do meet people beside from being in Church, who are joyfully willing to talk lovingly about the LORD . And it is a very good feeling when you meet a person who does share this sisterly or brotherly bond with you. You just feel it when you are with them. They will share that JESUS heart/love with you. So knowing such a wonderful feeling you want to share it with everyone you do meet, but there are some people who will be very mean and say or do mean things knowing you are saved and not like them.
The unbelievers do not understand that not ALL people who are Christians judge, I do not believe this is the right thing to do. For we are ALL sinners! There is no such thing as one person saying they are holier than thou. The Bible is very clear on this.
“For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;”
We are to plant the seed, and allow the person to make up their minds on their own. GOD has that power of convection over them to give them the chance to make the choice of what road they will take. HE gives us all freedom of choice. You do not want to let anyone not go without knowing that they can be saved!
The Believers Christian Praise Parade
Christian can have a parade or greeting too. Why not? It is good to share the good news to those who want to hear it! I am just so very happy to meet people who do share my joy, and in a crowd praising GOD, wearing my JESUS heart and sprit…..and know that we have made the choice to follow JESUS where we all will look up to the heavens hands raised , throwing kisses to GOD in our praise parade as HE looks down on us and will say “these are me children who love me, and I do love them so.”
