A Different Christian – Praise Fowowe

– I don’t want to be a Christian who only remembers God on Sunday and tries to bribe God with activities rather than cultivating a consistent relationship with Him
– I don’t want to be a Christian who makes God of man out of man of God and would rather seek to please ‘my father in the Lord’ even if it means disobeying ‘Our father who art in heaven’
– I don’t want to be a Christian whose offering is a business negotiation process with God, whose offering is out of a quest to get a 100 fold return at the expense of giving out of love.
– I don’t want to be a Christian who lifts up holy hands on Sunday to worship only to lift up filthy hands on Friday to dance to lewd music forgetting that we cant serve 2 masters.
– I don’t want to be a Christian whose private life contradicts his public life, showing a form of godliness denying the power thereof.
– I don’t want to be a Christian who never sees anything good in others, running others down with his mouth just to proof that I am better than others
– I don’t want to be that Christian who is far to see and sad to see; walking around with a pious look unwilling to relate with unbelievers forgetting that the son of man was mocked as a friend to tax collectors and influenced everyone without being influenced
– I don’t want to be that Christian whose service is to outdo others so that he can be seen by all for
– I don’t want to be that Christian who has moved from glory to glamour without understanding the difference. Who still feels okay without knowing that God has left him.
– I don’t want to be a Christian who is so heavenly conscious and earthly useless; whose saltiness is so weak to sweeten the world and whose light only shines in church services and goes dim in the society.
– I don’t want to be a Christian who is so conscious of what to eat that he has no sense of posterity. Who would rather give others money than teach them how to make money.
– I don’t want to be that Christian who sings the Lord’s song in a strange land. Who is too clean to declare his identity publicly lest he be mocked by his friends.
– I don’t want to be that Christian who takes the Lord’s mercy for weakness and his grace for slackness. Who doesn’t understand that the same merciful God is also a consuming fire.

This is my desire oh! Lord
