HOW? Print

“But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more?”  Galatians 4:9 ESV

The question is how?  How can you turn from the One who has saved you and filled you?  How?  How can you possibly contemplate ever returning to the emptiness of before Christ?

I'll be honest, I don t believe you can!  If you ve been filled with the powerful presence of God, how could you possibly just dismiss Him?

“My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.  I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of My hand.  My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all, and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand.  I and the Father are one.”  John10:27-30  ESV

So the possibilities are this ... if you desire to leave, you were either never truly a part of the body  – more like a barnacle on a boat ... just hanging on.  Or you re being deceived because you ve allowed something within this world to recapture your heart.

Both are serious – but the first one is much more so!  My hope is that you know Christ deeply and intimately and that your heart will be focused always on fulfilling His will!

God bless you!
