On the surface, are you a good Christian, walking like a traditional and strong Christian, leading a life with all the appearances of the faithful servant of Christ? This could be good as long as you are not living according to tradition instead of by God's word and direction.
A posting about T.D: Jakes spoke about the danger of allowing your life to be directed by tradition instead of God's directions. The post indicated he was so known for his routines you could tell time by him. One Sunday morning, he was preparing for his bath, but the Lord led him to relax and take a still moment with Him. He was troubled by breaking his routine and missing a meeting, yet he remained obedient to the voice of God, though the driver cautioned he must hurry or be late. He asked the driver to cancel the meeting and then continued his quiet moment with God. Within minutes, there was a loud explosion in the rear of his home. The bathroom where he would have been bathing, the kitchen, and the family room areas were destroyed due to an underground gas build-up! He could have been killed if he had not been obedient to God instead of his traditions and routines!
Saints, we must be careful not to become creatures so caught up in tradition, routines, and our desires that we either don't hear or won't follow the leading of the Holy Spirit providing God's direction to us. Obedience to Christ's commands could save your life! Are you listening? Better still, are you obeying? Or are you a creature of tradition, routine, all about you and your desires? Let it go, and let God lead you!
HAVE A BLESSED WEEK IN THE LORD!

KEEP IN PRAYER AND MIND:
We ask the Lord to encamp His angels around: our sick, shut-in, traveling, bereaved, our young people at home and away. We pray special prayers for the strength and healing of all who have said, "Pray for me!" We ask your prayers that God will cover and bless Pastor Henderson during his well-deserved restorative period of rest, recovery, and relaxation. We thank God for the safe return of our NJBC delegation traveling home from the N.C. pastoral installation service. And also, thank and praise God for our NJBC delegates to the Stoddert Home Anniversary Service this past weekend.
