How we should serve God as Christians

By FANIE JANSE VAN RENSBURG
FIRST, I greet all the Christians in my country Zambia! May our Holy God give you all grace and peace?
My name and who I am is not important, but my Three Holy God is of utmost importance because he is my only Saviour.
Who I thank for all the wisdom, guidance and strength He gives me in abundance, and who I praise, glorify and honour every day of my life so that I have a chance to inherit everlasting life and not everlasting death.
Yes, for my God is the only Judge of every soul on this damned world. He is and will stay my only true helper as written in His living word in Psalm 146 verse 3, where He says, “Don’t put your trust in human leaders; no human being can save you.”
In verse 4, he says when men die, they return to the dust; on that day all their plans come to an end.” Then in verse 5 He says, “Happy are those who have the God of Jacob to help them and who depend on the Lord their God.”
It is also my Three Holy God that says this world we are living in is an evil one! His living word is sure and just. His word sets out the truth as follows:
1) “Unfaithful people! Don’t you know that to be the world’s friend means to be God’s enemy? People who want to be the world’s friend make themselves God’s enemies. God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:4
2) “The world cannot hate you, but it hates me because I keep telling it that its ways are bad [evil ].” John 7:7
3) “He is the Spirit who reveals the truth about God. The world cannot receive Him because it cannot see Him or know Him.” John 14:17
4) “In order to set us free from this present evil age, Christ gave Himself for our sins, in obedience to the will of our God and Father! Galations 1:4
5) Even within our prayer to our Heavenly Father we are taught to say “do not bring us to hard testing, but keep us safe from the evil one”. Matthew 6:13
6) “I cannot talk with you much longer, because the ruler of this world is coming. He has no power over me”,  also seen everywhere through the Scriptures as small letter
“g” – god the ruler of this evil world, who also happens to be Satan, the Devil, Dragon and “Old Snake”, who are one and the same being and who is not of flesh and blood.
This is mentioned in Ephesians 6:12: “For we are not fighting against human beings but against the wicked spiritual forces in the heavenly world, the rulers, authorities, and cosmic powers of this dark age.”
It must be remembered, of course, that the laws are made not for good people but for law-breakers and criminals, for the godless and sinful, for those that are not religious or spiritual, for those that kill their fathers or mothers, for murderers, for the immoral, for sexual perverts, for kidnappers, for those who lie and give false testimony or who do anything else contrary to sound doctrine. 1 Tim 1:9
We all came into this world born naked with no belongings and when we return to dust our belongings remain in this world.
We also leave without any belongings.
But what is most important is our soul leaves our body when we die and is kept until only God decides whether it deserves to go to everlasting life or everlasting death.
One must remember that status does not impress my Three Holy God and on His return on Judgement Day, we will all be equal and be judged on how we performed against His spiritual characteristics.
We must remember that a Christian must do God’s will? And that is to perform His spiritual characteristics?
Our worst enemy as an individual is this tongue between our two cheeks. It is deadlier than any nuclear weapon if not controlled.
God bless you all! God willing I will continue with the individual and hopefully you will understand why we are in this world?
