Your life can be so miserable if you don’t take your Christian life so serious, quite shocking huh?? You need to seriously ask yourself these questions:
1. What kind of friends do I keep and hang around with??
2. Are they really adding anything good to improve my Christian life??
3. Am I achieving God’s plan for me with this person??
4. How bright is it with the kind of life I live with this person??
These questions are to be answered correctly so that you will know your stand right away…
Sometimes, the reason why many Christian youths do not go far with God is because of the kind of friends they keep. And am quiet sure about it because am a youth too. If I did not start fellowship with believers as my friends, I don’t think that I will be telling you this. In as much as I mingle with unbelievers everyday because of my work but…wait a minute, do you know what I do everyday too, I make sure that I get an encouragement from a Christian friend; and when I don’t get a word from a brother or sister, I go to bed ON TIME..why??? So that I will not think about the day too much. You know words do influence people quite well.
So, I must say that if you really want to go far with God, you need a break from that friendship that is always drawing you aback.. Take a close look at Shedrack, Meshack, Abednego and Daniel’s friendship, do you think that if it were to be that only Shedrack was a believer among his friends, that he will survive the pressure from his friends to bow? He will certainly not, because they will make sure that they “protect their friend”. Yeah! That’s the word “protect”… They are protecting you against God’s original plan for your life and you think it is a better idea to “just do it” and be “safe”… Oh no!!! I must say that you are getting it wrong.
Give yourself a break from ungodly friendships, and you will see yourself as a vessel in the hands of the Almighty… These 4 Hebrew guys knew who God is, and they stuck to each other against all odds, and they won!
I wish you will know Him too…
I just have to say this again, give it a break and walk with the right people….
