Futility of mind

Ephesians 4:17”….you walk no longer just as the Gentiles also walk, in the futility of their mind.”

The meaning of futile is ‘vain, useless etc”, we also see this word in the book of Ecclesiastes where the author Solomon mentions the word ‘vain’ several times, I wish you people comprehend the burden of my heart.  You can literally feel the tears brimming the eyes of Apostle Paul as we read his words, ‘that you walk no longer like the world’, what you did thus far is washed away by His blood when you believe in Jesus, but after that how you live matters, are you listening?

You cannot continue to live in that same adulterous relationship and deceive yourself by saying, ‘God understands’ by wearing a big cross around your neck, never….God expects you to live by His standards otherwise you don’t get the peace, joy and happiness that He promised.  Warning!  Get your financial dealings and  spending in line with the Word of God, every unrighteousness has to be erased, look what Paul says: “put on the new self, which in the likeness of God has been created in righteousness and holiness of the truth.”(Ephesians 4:24) Did you read the words, ‘likeness of God?”, yes, much is expected from us by God but what we see today in the lives of Christians is atrocity inside and outside the church.    

For the last two decades, I have watched many people – young and old – walk in and out of my meetings, sit the whole night and hear my word but when they walk outside the worship hall, they mix and blend with the world.  There is no commitment, determination and loyalty to stay holy and true to God, but they come back the same to the next prayer meeting – futile lives.  God is looking for men and women who would clothe themselves with Jesus and live for a true cause rather than live for pizzas and burgers, today it’s all about Amazon, Google, Flipkart rather than Heaven and Jesus.  God is looking for  smart men and women who would conduct Bible classes for street kids, sing songs for the elderly people in Old Age Home and He is looking for people who would visit Children Homes and play with them , whatever you do ‘outside this without God and His purpose’ is FUTILE.  Warning!
