A Christian Journey

My People

“If My people, who are called by My name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek, crave and require of necessity My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land.”   2 Chronicles 7:14

In this scripture God’s people are the Jews.  As Christians we are called by His name, the word christian means Christ like.   Do we humble ourselves before Him?  Do we pray, seek, crave and require of necessity His face/His presence in our life? Here’s the really tough question, have we turned from our wicked ways?  We don’t really like to think we have “wicked ways”.  We all tend to think we are pretty good people.  We don’t kill, steal, lie, lust or any of the other “really bad” sins.

As we seek revival in our country we need to start by examining our ways.  If Jesus were standing by your side every minute of every day going with you everywhere you go, seeing everything you see and hearing everything you say, would you still be the same?   As a believer Jesus IS with you all the time –  going, seeing, hearing.  Self examination is the first step to revival.  Make sure all you do is pleasing to the Lord.
