Spiritual Leaches and Followers

Many believers only want Jesus for the benefits, that which they can get from Him, they want eternal life, they WANT all their prayers answered, they WANT to be prosperous, they WANT everything but when they start following their celebrities and their idols then they start giving. Those celebrities don’t give them anything. Those people want to be associated with that celebrity, they buy the clothes, they go to the concerts. They buy the DVD’s, they wear the T-shirt with the celebrity name on it but they will not do that for Jesus. They will do everything to be associated with that celebrity or that football club but not with Jesus. Even their celebrity preacher, they will have reams of books written by some celebrity preacher but not Jesus. They will not wear a t-shirt with Jesus across it. They will quote their celebrity, obscene things that these celebrities speak but they will not utter the words of Jesus.
They want to be like those idols but not like Jesus. Who are we fooling? Do we know what it means to follow Jesus? It means to GIVE, to LIVE MY LIFE FOR JESUS, to be associated with Him even though you are rejected because you are following Jesus. MANY BELIEVERS DON’T KNOW WHAT IT MEANS TO FOLLOW JESUS, THEY ARE NOT INTERESTED IN FOLLOWING JESUS! They just want the benefits. They think that Jesus must bless them.
Dear friends, Jesus said:”Whoever denies Me in front of this wicked generation, I will certainly deny him before My Father who is in heaven.” Who are we following? Are you following Jesus? Are you associated with Jesus? Can everybody see and does everybody know that you are a child of God? You do everything to please Jesus, you don’t go along with the things of the world, because you follow Jesus. Is that how you are? Or are you into the celebrities? Who are you following? If we deny Jesus He will certainly deny us also and we will end up where our celebrities end up, in the pits of hell! We’ve got to make up our minds whether we are SPIRITUAL LEACHES, just WANTING EVERYTHING FROM GOD or whether we are followers of Christ, who love Him and who live our lives to be a reflection of Christ in everything that we do, what we say and what we are even what we wear so that people can see that we are followers of Christ.
Who do you follow? Jesus, or the world?
May Jesus bless you.
