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.
