Christianity is a matter of life and death. There is no middle ground…


I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:

Deuteronomy 30:19

Before you dive into an endless spiral of falsehood, unbelief and religion, I remind you again today of something you already know: Christianity is a serious business. God meant business when He sent His Son, Jesus, to die for all humanity. Jesus didn’t die so that you and I could be millionaires. Satan is making people millionaires everyday at the cost of their souls. But, He came so that we can have eternal life in Him, a relationship with the Father forever. He who doesn’t have life is in death and has no hope forever. – John 10:10; 1st John 5:11-12

I remind you today that in these days we are in, it’s not about whether or not you like Jesus or know about Jesus, but rather about whether you have chosen Jesus. He is life. This is about your life. You can try to have a life without Him but mark my words, YOU CAN’T TRULY LIVE WITHOUT JESUS.

Have you ever wondered what drives people so much about this Jesus that makes them give all they have because of Him? Many give up their jobs, families, lives all for Him. Not because they’ve been promised some virgins somewhere but because they understand something: “For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain” (Phil. 1:21).

Christianity is a matter of life and death. There is no middle ground. You can’t be here and be comfortable with the systems of this world. You can’t choose this life and then be running after the celebrities or trivialities of this world or any man for that matter. You can’t choose this life and draw your own blueprint for yourself. It is not about what you want to hear but about you having life. Have you chosen life after the order of Jesus Christ or you’ve just been playing church and religion?

It is a matter of life and death. Choose life today. Run to it. Fight for it. Pay the price for it. It is life. I’m not here to tell you there is a reward somewhere for doing so. There is, but I won’t give you that as the basis for running after this life. Don’t you want to live? Then this is life: Jesus in you.

Take a moment to evaluate yourself by asking this today, “Where am I standing in my earth walk?”

Father I run after you today. I cry out for you. Invade my heart with you. Change me completely until nothing in this world has any value more than you. I want to delight in Jesus above my ambitions, my dreams and visions. I want to have Jesus beyond any form of ministry or assignment I feel I’ve been given. I want you. I need you. Arrest me and let me be overwhelmed by more of you everyday Yahweh… in Jesus name, amen.

It is a matter of life and death. Choose life that you and your generation may live.
