In the book of 1 Samuel 30:13, David asked a man this question “To whom do you belong, and where do you come from?”. Often we are faced with this question. In the life of faith, there is no neutrality. You either be under the banner of The Lord Jesus, to serve and fight His battles, or you are a slave to the prince of this world, Satan.
To whom do you belong? Have you been “born again”? If you have, you belong to Christ. In whom do you trust? For those who believe in Jesus are the sons and daughters of God. Whose work are you doing? Are you sure you serve your savior or the taskmaster, Satan. What company do you keep? If you belong to Jesus, you will keep company with those who love and fear God. “Birds of a feather flock together”. What is your conversation? Is it heavenly or is it earthly? What have you learned from your savior? If you have served your time with Jesus, it will be said of you, as it was of John and Peter, “they recognized that they had been with Jesus” (Acts 4:13).
To whom do you belong? If you are not Christ’s you are in a hard service – run away from your wicked and cruel master. Enter into the service of The Lord of love, and you will enjoy a life of blessedness. If you are for Christ, do this 4 things:
1) Obey Him:- Let His word be your law; let His wish be your will.
2) Love Him:- Let your heart embrace Him. Let your whole heart (soul) be filled with Him.
3) Trust Him:- Rest on nothing or no one but on Him.
4) Decide for Him:- Even without being marked with a sign everyone will know to whom you belong.
Pray this prayer: Lord, forgive me my sins and accept me as one of your dear children, In Jesus name, Amen.
