COME IN THE HOUSE

You love someone dearly, so much that you will and have done everything for them and even when they don’t ask you, you still go out of your way to make sure that everything is perfect for that person.

You wake up together every morning in the same house, you go out together; you are both seen as inseparable by people and you still come back to the house together.

Something is missing though, this person never speaks to you, doesn’t say thank you and forgets to say good morning or goodnight to you; in the person’s mind you are there and s/he is grateful but has become so busy and fails to tell you even when they mean to. You know this might be out of character because there are excuses and you have spoken about it, the person gives excuses and yet no change.

The only change is when in trouble, this significant person in your life runs to you and you help. You don’t stop helping. You love so much the thought of not helping never crosses your mind.

How do you feel about this?

Take a moment to reflect…

Done?

Good.

That is exactly what we do to God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in our lives. We ask them through songs, words to come in the house and tell them how welcome they are but in our actions we fail.

We have not failed to tell people that we are Christians but daily we get consumed by life’s mishaps. Relationships that are tedious, jobs, people we like and don’t love us in return, illness and the likes and we only remember our true Christian nature when we have an issue.

Look at the scenario I painted up, that is exactly how we feel when we are neglected especially when we know we love someone so much that the thought of losing that person hurts us deeply and yet we keep doing things even when the person never acknowledges our efforts.

We are loved by God, and He paid the price of His only son to save us. That son in return even with the weight and agony He felt, went willingly to the cross to die; and as if that wasn’t enough was weary of leaving us all on our own and had to send someone who will make life easier – The Holy Spirit. That is the most profound love of all I have felt in a long while.

Some of us are yet to experience this, we think we are okay with the clothes we wear and branded things we use. To us, it brings a sense of fulfillment but we know something is missing. There is a way to fill that gap and to make this possible, I will like you to say this prayer with me –

“Dear God, I know I have done you wrong and most times I don’t feel proud to acknowledge your love but I am willing now. Please help me. I accept Jesus as not just my Saviour but as my Lord too. I want Him to run the affairs of my life today and every day for the rest of my life. Thank you for this opportunity. I am grateful”

For those of us that have accepted him a long time ago. Please let us give regard to the Holy Spirit who will help us acknowledge God and Jesus in our lives.

God bless us all.
