God Blessed Morning Family!
There is a recent slang these days of ,"Keeping it 100", this is to mean that the person is being honest, truthful and authentic. To say this means that the person is living a Life that is free of lies and deception in all aspects. The question comes in when we say this but Live a double lifestyle. For example we may have $20 in the bank but we max out our credit cards to live a lifestyle that is beyond our financial means. We may say we are Children of God but we do hateful things to one another. We say we have Faith but yet we worry about things we cannot control. All of these acts and more are not of a person "Keeping it 100". What would our Lives be like if Jesus did not "Keep it 100" and decided that He will speak the Word of God but not Live in that manner? This is the conflict that most of us have, for everyday we are tempted to do wrong for it seems easier than following the Word of God. That is precisely what Satan wants, for his purpose is to tempt us so that we lose Faith in God and Live a Life that is not 100. When we do not "Keep it 100" we dishonor not only ourselves but also God and instead we honor Satan. " And if Satan rise up against himself, and be divided, he cannot stand, but hath an end." Mark 3:26 When we honor God we turn our backs on Satan for he has no power over us, he is a temptress and we make a choice everyday to choose temptation or "Keep it 100" and honor God. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah
