Woe to Those

Read Isaiah 5:20-23

What has God intended for us as his children? I would suggest that you read Isaiah chapter 5 in its entirety to understand the scriptures above. If we become what the scriptures are saying we have turned away from God and his way. We have now started to worship other Gods and are attracted to worldly things.
All things that come from God are good and aren’t evil. If we are doing the things of this world or even allowing Satan to have dominion over our lives we have turned away from God – a good thing.

We fail as Christians when we fail to obey God and serve him whole heartedly. We have attempted to take control over our own lives and have pushed God aside. We have rejected saying yes to God’s will and way in our lives.

We as believers shouldn’t desire to be a disappointment in God’s eye sight. We should be yearning to be pleasing in his eye sight.
Here are a few points drawn from the scriptures today:

ü  We should be showing God’s goodness by spreading the gospel to all that can hear.

ü  We should let our God given light shine in this dark world.

ü  We should have a sweet spirit that draws others close to our God.

ü  We should always seek God’s wisdom over our own opinions.

ü  We should refrain from being drunk so that we are alert.

ü  We should always be willing to do what is just in right in God’s sight.
We as children of God don’t want to experience God’s wrath or even him turning his back on us. God has placed us in positons to produce much fruit.

Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
If we don’t remain connected to God we are worthless in his kingdom building. Just as grapes rotten and stink so will our presence before the Lord have a foul odor. We want to be a sweet aroma to God’s sense of smell. We shouldn’t want to experience God’s protection being removed from us and him allowing the enemy to attack us. Keep trusting God no matter what! What the world has to offer is temporary but what God has to offer us is  eternal.


  1. Yes, I agree. Good word!

  2. Amen us a Christians can not be of the world and the light, we must strive to please God and adhere to His word and will for us.
    Romans 12:2 says
    And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
