Unprofitable Works

Unprofitable Works

teshuva, jesus, God, love, obey, the wordEvery good thing is prefect right? No not really, some good things that take us away from better things are not perfect. Let me explain: time wasted in chitty-chatting with friends when we ought to be in our closets, using office time to study the word when you should actually be earning your pay, spending time in front of the television when you do not give enough time to God or family…. The list is endless.

Then we have the outright bad ones: living the life we lived before we met Christ.  Accepting and confessing Christ with no real change of heart and continuing in the life we lived before then, joining the world in their works instead of living the light God has called us to be. We should shine our lights so bright that evil is exposed and put down.

If we confess and profess Christ then our lives should show it. Anything that takes you away from God is not profitable to you or God’s kingdom.

And try to learn [in your experience] what is pleasing to the Lord [let your lives be constant proofs of what is most acceptable to Him]. Take no part in and have no fellowship with the fruitless deeds and enterprises of darkness, but instead [let your lives be so in contrast as to] expose and reprove and convict them. Ephesians 5:10-11 AMP

  1. God should be glorified in the life of any believer. I pray that we learn from this blog in Jesus name. So help us Lord. IJN. Amen.

    1. Amen ma! Thanks a lot for coming by ma.

  2. I love this! Life is not only about the activities that we do but how and when we do them. I was encouraged by a man of God who simply asked: “How do you spend your time, energy and resources?” This is my guide to judging how effectively I use these precious gifts from God. Thanks for sharing, Ugochi. Stay blessed!

    1. I love that question and I pray to remember it all the time. Thanks a lot for leaving this thought.
