“…therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure…” 2 Peter 1:10 (NKJV)

Something I have noticed among many folks today is that they don’t take their Christian walk seriously. For them Christianity is just an idea or an event, so when you talk to them about coming to church or praying or studying the Word of God, they feel reluctant about it. But the truth remains that, Christianity is much more than an event or an idea, it is life. I didn’t use the word “a life” because it is not a life, but life itself. I know this might sound a little ambiguous but that’s the truth. The true life that God wants us to live is the Christian life, therefore God expects us to take it seriously because how you live your Christian life, determines how your life will go, both here in this world and beyond this world. The quality of life you will live as a Christian is dependent on how serious you are with your Christian life. Today, you find that too many of God’s people are not enjoying Christianity at all or taking advantage of the provisions that we have in Christ Jesus. They are seriously oppressed and manipulated in so many ways all because they are not serious with their Christian life. In fact many are just moving about every day with so many questions in their heart about the authenticity of Christianity. They have been through so many situations and now, they are wondering if Christianity is actually real. But they don’t know that the reason they have come to this point is because they are not serious with their Christian walk. You can only enjoy the reality of Christianity when you take it seriously.
So it is important that you begin today to take your Christian walk with God very seriously. The gain cannot be overemphasized, so make a conscious decision to take your Christian walk seriously. When you do, you will live above the fiery darts of the devil, you will easily scale through situations that keep other people bound and most importantly, you will secure your eternal destination for good. It is for this reason our opening text says “…brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure…” 2 Peter 1:10 (NKJV) and in the Amplified of Philippians 2:12, the Bible says “…work out (cultivate, carry out to the goal, and fully complete) your own salvation with reverence and awe and trembling (self- distrust, with serious caution, tenderness of conscience, watchfulness against temptation, timidly shrinking from whatever might offend God and discredit the name of Christ)”. So begin today to take your Christian walk seriously, it is for your own benefit. Halleluiah!
