Leading a life pleasing in the site of God is every Christians desire. Many times we hear about the presence of God being preached. But most of the time the preacher will be narrating the story of some other great man or women of God who experienced the presence of God in their life.
A wrong idea which has come in the church today is that people have the idea that presence of God is something to be experienced in church or some other special occasions. A idea of experiencing the presence of God always and leading a life in close walk with God sounds like an old fashioned thing for many people. I say like this because if we really had then we wouldn't be doing many things which we do. Now think about things we avoid doing when we are on fasting or when we are in church. When we are in spiritual environment then we avoid many things. But we do the same things when we are alone. Now there seems to be some problem with that. Are we considering God as one among many things in our life or are we really considering him as main thing in our life.
Do we really long for the presence of God in our life. If we do then how do we conduct our life. What is the standard of our life? Is it good enough so that the presence of God will be there always in our life?
I would encourage you to watch this message given by Paul Washer. This message is titled as shocking. But I think he is just trying to put forward some important things which this generation Christians must understand. I encourage you to take some time and see this video and think about your own life.
May God Bless You!
