When I first came to Christ I was so passionate to worship Him, daily I was praying, reading the word, and staying connected to the people who God put in my path to inspire me to continue to move forward in His mission for my life. I quickly saw how God began to bless me, I was only 18 and my life was drastically advancing, everyone saw the great work God was investing in me, I soon was employed by a very Respectable ministry in South Florida and I was full time in school, keeping up good grades and advancing in all I placed my focus on. But not even 8 months into my new life I was already teaming up with the wrong people. I quickly changed, my attitude towards Christ was affected, and everything that God had invested in me was gone in just a month.
Don’t team up with those who are unbelievers. How can righteousness be a partner with wickedness? How can light live with darkness? What harmony can there be between Christ and the devil? How can a believer be a partner with an unbeliever?
I never left the church, I still attended to all the services with a smile on my face and declaring the Lords name, after Church on Saturday I would many times leave and not return home till Tuesday bible studies. Living a full life sin and partying with people who never had the best interest for my life. This went on for years, I thought I had it all under control, until one day I watch an episode of Hannah Montana and how she lost both her friends and family because she was playing both worlds.
(Revelation 3:15 & 16)
I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either one or the other! So, because you are lukewarm—neither hot nor cold—I am about to spit you out of my mouth.
After living two worlds God finally ended it for me, He removed everything that was not of Him from my path and I lost some relationship that I once held so near to my heart, relationships that only God can now build up. Many years latter i learn my lessons, and in the past year God has brought me back to the place He once had me, but this time I have learn to appreciate the value of love in the people that care about me the must. Living two lives is no longer me, for there is only space for ONE God, and His name is Jesus. But like me, there are many millions more who live the same Hannah life, don’t place yourself in a position where you will lose all you have to gain nothing. Ill close with this:
And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
