Don't be a part time Christian!

Christianity is not an afterthought, a hobby or a part time commitment.

Christianity is not attending a few church services a week. Christianity as presented in the Bible is a full time commitment in full submission to God, separated from the world. It's a daily and constant dying to self. A daily taking of our crosses and following Jesus. It's being counted as a sheep for slaughter. It's utter and complete surrender to the one true God through His Son Jesus. If one is to be a genuine Christian then they are not do in just one or two areas of life but they are a Christian in everything they say and do, including but not limited to entertainment, sports, school, work, hobbies, reading, music and so on. It's complete and utter surrender! I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Galatians 2:20 And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. [39] He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:38-39 Yea, for thy sake are we killed all the day long; we are counted as sheep for the slaughter. Psalm 44:22 And he said to them all, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow me. [24] For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for my sake, the same shall save it. [25] For what is a man advantaged, if he gain the whole world, and lose himself, or be cast away? Luke 9:23-25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. [25] He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. [26] If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour. John 12:24-26 Warning, part time Christians do not enter heaven! And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me. Matthew 10:38 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16

“Holiness” and “Holy” are perhaps the most under-emphasized and rarely used words in the pulpits of modern Christianity. If and when they are referred to, they are typically watered down by man-made d
