the problem with part-time

Do you declare yourself sober and binge drink on the weekends?

Do you announce that you are clean and still use occasionally?

Do you profess high integrity, but only steal when you go into Walmart?

Do you project to everyone that you’re a truth-talker, but are still prone to lying, embellishment and exaggeration?

Do you say “I’m waiting on God to open the doors”, but in reality you are pressuring man to open the doors for you?

Do you tell a man or woman that you love them, but treat their kids (natural or spiritual) with contempt?

Do you tell a man or woman that you love them, but treat their parents (natural or spiritual) with contempt?

Are you willing to honor “the elders” at church or in the ministry, but you will not honor or prefer your work boss, parents,  spouse, family or peers?

When is a good time to defile?  When is jealousy & covetous attitudes ok?  When is judgment acceptable?

“GOD is always on the alert, constantly on the lookout for people who are totally committed to him.”  2 Chron 16:9, MSG

The good thing about spiritual government is that it is always engaged.  The problem with spiritual government is that it always engaged.  The smallest contradictions cut the deepest grooves in our spirit.  We can’t pick and choose when and where we’ll be full-time Kingdom.  Going at it with part-time effort is creating more problems for you than you’ll ever realize…until later.
