Clarion Call. Christian Life Is Not A World Of Comfort And Ease

Philippians_3-14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians_3-14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

By Jack Graham

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”

Luke 9:23

I read awhile ago a statistic that said 47 percent of the people who live in the state of Texas attend church regularly. That’s nearly half of an entire state! Somebody said there are more churchgoers in Texas than people! Yet, that statistic saddens me because despite having so many who claim to be Christians in the area in which I live, our faith has very little influence on our population.

What’s happened to the Church? Well for one, the Church has retreated. No longer is the Church fearless, but they’re playing it safe, avoiding confrontation at all costs. They’re scared that someone’s going to be offended. They’re afraid someone is going to put them down. And as a result, churches across our nation have moved into the safety zone.

Now this is a heart issue that lies within each individual Christian. So many buy into the world’s lies that it doesn’t really matter what you believe about God as long as it makes you happy. But as believers, we simply can’t escape the clarion call in our lives to deny ourselves, take up our crosses daily, and follow Christ.

The Christian life isn’t a world of comfort and ease—it’s not a cruise ship. Instead, it’s a battleship—a lifelong fight against the enemy to win souls for the Kingdom of God. So if you’re searching for comfort in life, change your focus to serving the One who is Life!

Instead of seeking comforts in life, give yourself daily in service for the one who is life.

Ephesians_6-13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

Thank You Jesus!

  1. Sing for joy to God our strength;
    shout aloud to the God of Jacob!
    2 Begin the music, strike the timbrel,
    play the melodious harp and lyre.

    3 Sound the ram’s horn at the New Moon,
    and when the moon is full, on the day of our festival;
    4 this is a decree for Israel,
    an ordinance of the God of Jacob.
    5 When God went out against Egypt,
    he established it as a statute for Joseph.

    I heard an unknown voice say:

    6 “I removed the burden from their shoulders;
    their hands were set free from the basket.
    7 In your distress you called and I rescued you,
    I answered you out of a thundercloud;
    I tested you at the waters of Meribah.[c]
    8 Hear me, my people, and I will warn you—
    if you would only listen to me, Israel!
    9 You shall have no foreign god among you;
    you shall not worship any god other than me.
    10 I am the Lord your God,
    who brought you up out of Egypt.
    Open wide your mouth and I will fill it.

    11 “But my people would not listen to me;
    Israel would not submit to me.
    12 So I gave them over to their stubborn hearts
    to follow their own devices.

    13 “If my people would only listen to me,
    if Israel would only follow my ways,
    14 how quickly I would subdue their enemies
    and turn my hand against their foes!
    15 Those who hate the Lord would cringe before him,
    and their punishment would last forever.
    16 But you would be fed with the finest of wheat;
    with honey from the rock I would satisfy you.”

  2. With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth.

    14 I have rejoiced in the way of thy testimonies, as much as in all riches.

    15 I will meditate in thy precepts, and have respect unto thy ways.

  3. When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear.

    13 But the angel said to him: “Do not be afraid, Zechariah; your prayer has been heard. Your wife Elizabeth will bear you a son, and you are to call him John.

    14 He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth
