Check your motives

Many Christian believers are disappointed with Jesus Christ. Many of them are resentful; they are even mad at Him because they feel that they are not getting what they deserve. Many have been seeking after the baptism in the Holy Spirit for years. Others want to hear the voice of God. They pray, they ask Jesus to speak to them and they hear nothing. Others want assurances off Jesus, but they get nothing.

These people need to check their motives. They need to examine themselves, because Jesus called us to be His witnesses. It is our duty to bring glory to Him. We should not be entitled, we do not deserve anything, but we are called to bring glory to our Lord and Master. Jesus said:”Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all the other things will be added unto you.” If we come to Jesus as beggars, if we always want things our way, if we are disgruntled, disappointed, anxious, despondent, it is because our motives are wrong. We are focused on ourselves and our selfish desires, we should bring glory to Jesus. That is our purpose.

If we live for Jesus and to bring glory to Him then we will not even need to ask for what we need. He gladly gives to His children whatever they need even before they ask, because He is a good God. He is a good father, but if we are selfish and ambitious and we want things for ourselves then we have forgotten what the kingdom of God is about. It is all about Jesus. All the glory, all the honor all the praise goes to Jesus. We deserve nothing. Without Jesus we can do nothing. Once you start thanking Jesus, praising Him, witnessing for Him, giving Him glory then the joy of Jesus Christ will fill your heart and you will receive more than you ever thought, more than you ever needed. Bring glory to Jesus and He will lift you up.

May Jesus bless you.
