The “Holy Spirit-filled, Tongues Speaking” Brother met the “Demon-Casting, Sanctimonious” Sister and they became friends. Went on the first date and realized they had even more affinity for each other. They have a lot in common hence as the days went by they grew fonder and fonder of each other.
One of the things they had in common was that they both seemed to love The Lord hence talked a lot about all the things they do in church for the Lord. Another one being that, they both hid their weaknesses and past life from themselves and kept chilling and hanging around each other as if they are angels and cannot fall.
The sister came to visit the brother once at home and they got carried away; touching turned to caressing then to fondling, then started kissing and ended up having passionate sex. Sister hasn’t had such an intense orgasmic experience before so she became even more attached to the brother. One day’s sex became daily sex routine and these spirit filled and sanctimonious people couldn’t stop themselves.
They go to church and get reenergized for the Lord, pray in the most powerful tongues and ministers to the congregation. Then the brother and sister begin to feel guilty after church, pray for forgiveness and decide not to get intimate again. But two days after, these guys meet again couldn’t resist the temptation and have sex again; then the sister becomes remorseful after, however the brother begins to teach her about God’s grace and how Jesus is interceding on their behalf since he bore their weakness when he took human form. She buys the “message of grace” from the brother’s point of view and their next sex episodes were even more tumultuous than ever.
How easy they got naked in front of themselves but not in front of God. This is the story of a lot of church boys and church girls. We shield our weaknesses and pretend to be strong when we are actually struggling to keep up in the Christ Walk. We forget that there is a cloud of witnesses and God who saw us sinning and is ready to help us deal with it if we could just get naked be HIM. We write our own definition and doctrine of “Grace”, hide behind it and continue living in sin.
“Holy Spirit-filled, Tongues Speaking” Brother, stop deceiving yourself and that innocent looking “Demon-Casting, Sanctimonious” Sister. God is watching you and crying, wishing that you would see how much he loves you in spite of your sin and hoping that you will just get naked before him so he washes you and help you deal with your weaknesses and turn them into strengths.
Come as you are and God will save you and make a testimony out of you. Don’t give the devil an inch; he will turn it into a mile. God loves you very much; Stay blessed. See you at the finish line.
Hebrews 12:1-3 Amplified Bible (AMP)
12 Therefore then, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses [who have borne testimony to the Truth], let us strip off and throw aside every encumbrance (unnecessary weight) and that sin which so readily (deftly and cleverly) clings to and entangles us, and let us run with patient endurance and steady and active persistence the appointed course of the race that is set before us,
2 Looking away [from all that will distract] to Jesus, Who is the Leader and the Source of our faith [giving the first incentive for our belief] and is also its Finisher [bringing it to maturity and perfection]. He, for the joy [of obtaining the prize] that was set before Him, endured the cross, despising and ignoring the shame, and is now seated at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Just think of Him Who endured from sinners such grievous opposition and bitter hostility against Himself [reckon up and consider it all in comparison with your trials], so that you may not grow weary or exhausted, losing heart and relaxing and fainting in your minds.
