I AM and the Holy Spirit are grieved at the "convenience" Christians in the Body of Christ. They pray only when it's convenient ... for them. They witness only when it's convenient ... for them. They praise and worship only when it's convenient ... for them.
They refuse to sacrifice their lusts for worldly things because that wouldn't be convenient ... for them. They refuse to do what I told them to do because that takes time and isn't convenient ... for them.
But there's coming a time in the very near future when the "convenience Christian" won't be convenient ... for them.
Ephesians 4:30 AMP ... Do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, (do not offend, vex, or sadden Him) by Whom you were sealed (marked, branded as God's own).
Romans 8:13 AMP ... If you live according to the dictates of the flesh, you will surely die. But if through the power of the Holy Spirit you are habitually putting to death ... making extinct, deadening ... the evil deeds prompted by the body, you shall (really and genuinely) live forever.
James 1:14,15 AMP ... Every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust and passions). Then the evil desire, when it is conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin when it is fully mature, brings forth death.
Are you a Christian of your "convenience", saying to God when He speaks to you to do or say something, "Later, God. I'll do that at a more convenient time for me. I must finish what I'm doing now first." ... Or are you at God's beck and call when He calls you to do something for Him?
Well, you know what "they" say about "later" ....it NEVER COMES.
But the end of things will come ... and then will you still be saying, "Later, God."? Hopefully. you will be doing and saying the things that God wants you to do and say.
