“There is nothing easier than getting into the right relationship with God, unless it is not God you seek, but only what He can give you” –Oswald Chambers
A common misconception with Christianity is that when you love God and accept Him in your life, you will receive whatever you want. This misconception causes many to join in and become a follower of Christ. However, the bad thing is their reasoning behind their decision. A true follower of Christ does not join in on the bandwagon just because of what they can get out of it. It completely goes against what Christianity is all about. Christianity calls us to put others above ourselves. If selfishness is what has driven you towards Christianity, you will not experience our great God, because you are centered on material. God wants his children to truly love Him and delight in Him because of his selfless love for us and because of how GREAT and POWERFUL he truly is! He wants someone that is so in love that they will constantly trust and praise him.
Something you will begin to realize when your heart is in sync with the Lord’s heart is that what you want in this world changes because of your DESIRE to serve our Maker. A follower of Christ selflessly wants to enhance the Kingdom of God, rather than serve his or herself. God does not want a child that only seeks his gifts. God wants his followers to be on FIRE for Him, and to live each and every day spreading and praising God.
This quote is one to remember throughout your walk with the Lord. We should continuously be seeking after GOD! God is truly amazing and will reveal Himself to you in powerful, beautiful ways if you are looking for God, not His GIFTS! God is what allows you to conquer your biggest fears, life’s struggles, and the hard decisions!
