Put Your Faith in this and You Will ALWAYS Be Disappointed

Okay... so maybe disappointment isn't the greatest gift in the world... but this sure was a funny pic!

Good day to you, wherever in the world you are at. As Christian people who are a part of God’s Kingdom… we must NEVER forget that we are not exempt from losing or straying away from our faith.

I have heard it said in the past that the #1 reason why many people leave church, and EVEN worse… abandon their faith in God, is because of the hypocrites they see in church, or see on T.V.

So let’s be real — are there hypocrites in church? Well does a fish swim in the water and does a bird fly in the air? Of course there are hypocrites in church!

…and then again, there are also hypocrites in the hospitals, but that doesn’t stop any of us from going to the hospital if we break our leg… does it?

Are there hypocrite attorneys out there? There sure are… but if I ever get into legal trouble, I’m going to be the first person to rush out and try and grab myself a Johnny Cochran/Matlock — whether they’re a hypocrite OR not!

Point being is this: People are people, whether they are godly or ungodly people. Pastors are people. Ministers are people. Bishops are people. I myself am a pastor, and while I would like to tell everyone that I have no faults in my life, actions, or thoughts — that would be a BOLD faced lie!

I do live a highly moral life… and I refrain from doing many of the things other 20-something year olds do… but I do mess up sometimes.

I get angry without cause sometimes, I get a little selfish sometimes, sometimes I think crazy thoughts… but I do strive to be the BEST man God made me… and I try even harder to walk a stronger Christian walk, each day that I live. So I might not be perfect (and never will be)… but I AM better than I was yesterday!

You see friends… we must NEVER put our faith in men. Do NOT put your faith in men, because they will ALWAYS disappoint you — but put your faith in the ONE living and TRUE God, and He will NEVER disappoint you!

The ONLY perfect person who ever walked this earth was Jesus… and we should follow his example and put our faith in Him, because we WILL NEVER be disappointed in Him.

If you put your faith in Christ on me, a self-declared man of God — you will eventually be disappointed. If you put your faith in Christ on your Pastor at your church — you will eventually be disappointed. If you put your faith in Christ on the television evangelist — you will eventually be disappointed.

But put your faith in Jesus… and fix your eyes on Jesus, who is the AUTHOR and the FINISHER of your faith… and you will NOT grow weary and you will NOT lose heart! (Hebrews 12:2, 3 paraphrased)

Don’t allow people to shake your faith in Jesus… but do allow your faith in Jesus to shake the world around you! If you ever see people who are leaders in the Body of Christ, and they fall into sin… or they disappoint you, don’t leave God and your faith because of that. That man or that woman is just the same as you — a human being and is prone to falling to the same sins you do.

Put your faith in Jesus… and you will NEVER be disappointed. Be blessed and walk in God’s abundance today!
