ON MY PILGRIM JOURNEY

Am I in Love With the Word (Christ), or I Am in Love With the World?


Listen To Podcast: 2022: The Year of God's Will

In all humility, and with love in my heart for you, I enjoy you to please, join me to consider this question in a short moment in your heart.

I wouldn't want you to say, "even without an answer, anyone would know I am a person of the WORD”.

Sir/Ma, this is not about what you think we should know, but deep down your heart; considering your interest, passion, ambition and appetite; who do you think you have falling in love with?

Apostle Paul said something that could be of a great help for us in this brief meditation in 2 Corinthians Chapter 13 verse 5; let’s read in Amplifier Version: "Test and evaluate yourselves to see whether you are in the faith and living your lives as [committed] believers. Examine yourselves [not me]! Or do you not recognize this about yourselves [by an ongoing experience] that Jesus Christ is in you —unless indeed you fail the test and are rejected as counterfeit?"

Even if no one else should believe you, one fact still remains that, you are most honest and opened to the reality about you. Who are you in love with as you journey in the midst of men towards fulfilling your role of life on the earth?

Jesus is the WORD of God personified. At a point in His mission on the earth to the earth, as He went about diffusing the fragrance of the Kingdom of God, He said, "As long as I Am in the world, I Am the Light of the World... The prince of the WORLD comes, but he has nothing [no part of his, no passion of his, no lust of his] in Me".

As He is, seated at the right hand of His Majesty on high, so are we in this world. His testimony ought to be our testimony. Of course, the World, the prince of it, the organizing head of the system of this world, has nothing — no trait — that he could accuse Jesus successful that he got it from the styles, appetites, and general culture of the world — In words, walk, and deeds, He had no resemblance with the world. Just like Apostle Paul said, " I am dead to the world, and the world is dead to me". The world can't advance its course in me. If the world had anything to say to anyone, or make news with, it would find me uninteresting.

Now, let's consider this, if you and your friend were to keep your mobile phones together in a bag; maybe because you were busy on something for some time. After you were done and each of you were to pick up your phone, would you be confused of the one that were yours to pick up? Peradventure you had similar phone with your friend, and you mistakenly picked your friend's own, wouldn't you still know after all that you had picked what were not your own?

In a similar manner, if you were standing on a platform with your friend, and JESUS (The Word of God), or the Devil (the prince of this World — not the world as geographical location, but as lifestyles, fashion, lust, and taste), were to have a pick, between the WORD and the WORLD, who will pick you?

Whose seeds is in you: who have made investment in you that it should make its claim of you now, and here after?

Only you and I can genuinely answer this question for ourselves, who are you in love with? If it is not Jesus, you know. You wouldn't be confused, if Jesus has been making His investment into your life over the years, or months; I wouldn't be confused too. Also, if the depositor of your life, or my life, has been the world, I know, just as you also know.

He that should come will come, where have you anchored your hope, is it in Him, or in the world? Please, consider this very thing. You can't be for Jesus, and yet be for the world. There is no middle ground. But I pray that after today, having seen your state, you will return to pitch your tent with Jesus perpetually from the World, and if your love is already for Jesus, you will continue to abide in Him until your hope in Him is completely crowned at His feet on your last in Jesus’ name!


Thanks for the gift of your time, I am John Ojoagbene!

Word of Confession: (Optional)

Lord Jesus, I confess to you that I have sinned against the LORD God - in the rebellion of my heart, I have disappointed your expectations on my life. I have fallen from Your grace and followed wrong influences around me. Today, I retrace my steps back to you - and I ask that in your mercy you accept me as your son and give to me (again) the promise of the Father - the Holy Spirit. Lord Jesus, please, come and make my heart your home, and from there rule in the affairs of all men. In Jesus Name I have prayed.

Many Christians run into lots of errors because they fail to engage the Spirit of God in them. He isn't supposed to be dormant. He is in you for a function. He is your special advantage.
