Are you a winner? 4-12-17
There are many people who really think that they are living the lives of being a true winner. Yes it looks that way to them. But what does it look like in the Eyes of God? There are a lot of people who are successful at their jobs, businesses and positions in their lives and they are making good money. Yet they have sin in their lives and they are worldly. They look at themselves in the mirror and say; "I am successful and that makes me a winner." Does this really make them a winner? Let's see.
What does being a real winner involve? Getting up early, going out to the gym or where ever, practising for hours until their muscles ache, eating the right foods every day, taking all vitamins, exercising every day for hours, sweating until they are covered with presperation, going home aching after a hard days work and do it all again the next day. A man or a woman can have all the sucess in their lives that life can offer and not have Jesus in their lives and still end up in the fires of hell a loser. What about being a true christian?
The devil's number one comission is to see yours and every man, woman, boy and girl souls in hell. Satan uses the flesh and the world and every imaginable sin to defeat people and they go to hell with out repentance. The devil is the biggest loser and the biggest liar ever. All who follow him are what he is and are going where he is going. Jesus is the Champion over the flesh, the world and the devil. Jesus defeated all three on the Cross when He died. Jesus never once gave place to satan. Jesus never once weakened and sat down from being a true Winner. Jesus never once gave into any temptations and fell from grace. Jesus stood on His Feet and took every thing that the flesh, the world and the devil could throw at Him. The devil hit Jesus with his best shot and Jesus fought it all and won. Then it was Jesus' turn. When He died on the Cross, He put satan down for the 3 count along with the flesh and the world. The devil lost, he lost forever. All of satan's plans were destroyed when he lost to Jesus the Champion.
What does it take to be a true winner? First you have to be saved and forgiven of all sins. You have to be a follower of Jesus and a servant of God not when you feel like it but every day all day. You have to fight the flesh, the world and the devil every day. At night you repent of all sins even if you think you didn't sin, you repent any way cause you fear God and love God. You read the Word of God every day and listen to Christian music only and nothing else. You watch Christian television and do not watch any thing that has cursing, sex, adultery, fornication, idolatry, hatred, lying, cheating, stealing, murders or any thing that is offensive against the Word of God. You chose new friends and meet real Christian friends. You go to a Bible teaching church every week. You have dedicated your life to God and Jesus and God's Holy Spirit. You witness to others that you know who are lost and try to be a soul winner. You do what ever pleases God at all times and talk to Him regularly every day.
So, what about you? Do you have what it takes to be a winner? Where is your christian walk now? Are you a true child of God? If you are, then you are a true winner and you will receive all of your rewards and treasures and trophies and your mansion in Heaven. If you are not a true child of God, a real christian, look at your self in the mirror and make the change, because you are nothing but a loser regardless of your wealth and success and all losers go straight to hell. What hope does a candy wrapper have? None. What hope does a bar of gold have? A lot. Do you get the picture here?
There is no better place on earth than being on the road to Heaven. There is no better feeling than being a winner. There is no better feeling to know that you have fought the fight and won. There is no better life to live than being a true child of God. There is no better feeling to have than to know that you are forgiven of all sins. There is no better feeling to have to know that you are not going to hell but to Heaven when you die because you have Jesus in your heart and in your life totally and completely. There is no better feeling to have than to know that your name is written in the Lambs Book Of Life in Heaven. There is no better feeling to have than to know that when you die you will inherit the Kingdom of God and knowing that you have a mansion not built with human hands waiting for you in Heaven and you will walk on streets of pure gold. There is no better feeling to have to know that you will live forever and ever and ever. There is no better place to be than Heaven forever. This is what a true winner will have when he or she dies. All others are thrown away in Heaven's dump the place called hell.
If you are not right with God, do you want to be a real winner? If so, go to Him now and repent of all sins, accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior, follow Jesus, serve God all of your days, stay in the Word of God daily and God will bless you. God bless you.
