We sing it in songs, we try to mean it with all our heart, yet, there are times we still seek some other forms of satisfaction.
Can God really be enough for me?
If at one point, all you can think of is a certain person or you can’t get the idea of getting married out of your head, then God isn’t enough for you yet.
If you are wondering, whether alcohol, tattoos, or cursing is permissive for a Christian, then God isn’t enough for you yet.
If you enjoy parties, watching secular movies and music, then unfortunately God isn’t enough for you yet either.
If you somehow believe patriotism for a nation other than God’s own Kingdom and Christianity go hand in hand, then definitely God (and His Kingdom) isn’t enough for you.

There was this story from a sport called baseball of a team leader who was considered “a central figure” of his team for his many talents and his “leadership”. In a game, this man of “integrity” has faked getting injured in an attempt to help his team win. None of this would be all too terrible, if it weren’t for two things:
Number one: He confessed that he faked it and didn’t even feel any remorse. Instead, he reasoned that he was told to do something to score and so he did. As simple as that.
Number two: Nobody made a big deal about it. Even their opponents that night admired what he did.
He got the point and the job done. That’s that. Who cares, if he did something foul or even unethical (if you can call cheating unethical at all these days).

Two men went up into the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector.
Every Sunday, we lift our hands up and praise God. That’s the new Christian idea of worship. We give our excellence in setting up the church program, we give our talents into the singing of preselected and well-practiced songs, we show the people from the pulpit and in the small-groups what we’ve learned in the Bible about living a safe and comfortable Christian life.
It almost looks like we have something to offer to God.
The Pharisee stood and was praying this to himself:
‘God, I thank You that I am not like other people:
swindlers, unjust, adulterers, or even like this tax collector.
‘I fast twice a week; I pay tithes of all that I get.‘

Many a people group have been mistreated in the past and unfortunately, it doesn’t stay there. It reverberates in the hearts of these victim’s descendants. A very interesting phenomenon seen for example in the attitude of Afro-Americans presently, although they themselves haven’t gone through their ancestor’s harsh trials.

He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet He never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, He did not open His mouth.
(Isaiah 53:7 NLT)
There’s something so powerful about doing the right thing for the sake of doing it right. Even if you yourself don’t like the idea of it (Luke 22:42). Even if the people around you are thinking it’s ludicrous and tell you, you don’t have to do it (Matt. 16:22-23).
Even if you are being attacked for doing the right thing…
