This killer is a celebrated work, something we do everyday. However it kills us on the inside. It takes people by the millions. Several lose their lives and forget who they are. Some even become prideful and trade their joy filled lives for a different bitter one. Almost every human on the planet suffers from this ailment. This epidemic must be stopped! This epidemic is COMPARISON!
….. Just ponder that for second. You know that is true! Even today you wished your life was different in some fashion. Have we as a church, completely forgotten who we are that we must try to be someone else. Are we really that bad? Yes, we may wish our situations were different, but did we forget that once we change our perspectives that the way we look at our circumstances change? Have we really tossed every good principle about taking every thought captive out the door? Did we really just trade our joy, which is our strength, for pride or depression? What are we doing? This is not who we were made to be. God calls us princes and princess. He trusts us! He even has removed our shame, yet we still walk around with our heads down and wear it as a grown of glory for the world to see. Have we really forgotten what Jesus Christ has done for us? Or are we that prideful in our shame that we invite all new believers to join us in the mud pit that they just walked out of!? WHAT ARE WE DOING?
It is time to WAKE UP! It is time to remember who(se) we are and to rise up. It is time to leave the pit of shame and walk in righteousness. It is time for the Bride of Christ to realize who she is and to walk in the authority Christ has Comparison is refusing to look at Christ as your mirror but someone or something else. given her. It is time for her to take her place and win back this world for her love, Jesus Christ. Can you imagine, if we, as the bride of Christ, realized how powerful we were and acted like it, the whole world would have been saved already, and Christ would have already come back for His Bride!
It is time for the Bride to rise up and to leave the comparison game behind. This game has gotten us no where, but has left us confused and far away from what Christ has for us. Comparison is refusing to look at Christ as your mirror but someone or something else. In a way, comparison is the modern day idol. Celebrated by the world and the church. All comparison is is a ploy to get us distracted from who(se) we are so that we never walk into our destiny. NOT ANYMORE! I have decided to put a stop to this epidemic and have pulled off this dark veil and exposed comparison for what it is.
Now it is up to you. Will you choose to walk away from this game and live the life you’ve always wanted? Will we as the church decide today to be who really are, the beautiful, powerful Bride of Christ? I am ready, are you?
