Good morning Jesus I begin my morning intentionally drawing closer to you, who longs to draw closer to me.

ʻI know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot. I wish you were either cold or hot! So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I am going to vomit you out of my mouth! Because you say, “I am rich and have acquired great wealth, and need nothing,” but do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind, and naked," Revelations 3:15-17.

My morning blog post is different today.  In stead of of blog I have written I am asking you to read a short article entitled, "Dear Christians There is One Thing Worse Than Being An Atheist."  Click the button below now and read it. then return to this page.

As the Lead Follower of One Direction Community trying to get people to embrace becoming disciples of Jesus Christ, of spending time daily reading their Bible, in real time set aside for real prayer, and gathering in a Band for true accountability,  my greatest struggle are Christians that have "found comfort in a label" of calling themselves a "Christian." They have at one point been baptized, got the Tee shirt to prove it to themselves and others, and may even wear it to church now and then. So they are "good" in their faith, and wear the tee shirt to rationalize leading a life that is absent from signs or fruits of their salvation.  Compare your life to Jim and Bob and that of Jesus.  Who are you a disciple of? Jim and Bob do not set aside time daily (1) embracing God in his Word and (2) in prayer.  Bob and Jim are not (3) in a Band, Reunion group, or other from of deep Christian accountability.  Jim and Bob do not (4) serve others on a regular basis. Jesus embraced and encouraged all four of these.  Honestly, how many of these four are a part of your daily life?  Are you committed and honestly prioritizing and embracing these four things as a "Disciple" of Jesus and embracing his cross?  Or are you a simply using the label "Christian" like Jim and wearing the Tee Shirt?

My family, I pray today you will seriously and honestly reflect on not the label of being a "Christian", but your true relationship with Christ.  Please pray the same for me.  God bless you my friends!
