Christianity has changed a great deal in recent times. Due to the emergence of super rich Pentecostal pastors, people are having so many things to say about Christianity. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.
But in anything you do as a Christian, the one thing that should bother you the most is the glory of God that is in you. You might think you are rich in the spirit but when you lack the Glory of God in your life, you will suffer from lack of spiritual growth.
I was reading a special sermon from Pastor Olukoya were he talked about glory and the way you can understand it. According to the man of God, when the glory of the Lord come upon you, it will be visible to everybody. The glory will be so evident that everyone will be able to see it but once it leaves you, it will go away like a silent wind.
He used the case of Samson as an example, when he was given super natural strength, it was the glory of the Lord and the whole world new about it. He was the talk of the town and the details about him was all over town. But when he lost the Glory due to fornication, nobody knew. Even Samson himself didn’t know that the Glory of the Lord had left him. He walked around thinking that he still had it in him.
This is also applicable for people who think they have the Glory of God because they pay huge amount of money as their tithes. It doesn’t matter what you pay to God, if you don’t keep his commandments and think that your heavy tithes and offerings will save you, the Glory will depart from you and you won’t even know that it is gone. I pray that the Lord gives us understanding.
