No one wants to be ignored. When people do not notice you, or respect you, there often is a pain of rejection. God, also is grieved, and saddened, when people ignore and reject Him. The end result, apart from God, is to perish, being separated from Him and His Presence forever. God desires to be believed. Unfortunately, many people reject His Mercy, Grace, and Love. God sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to live a sinless life, and to die on The Cross, paying the price to redeem every person, from the death penalty that sin requires. This free gift is offered to every person who repents of their sins and truly believes upon Jesus Christ. Those who believe in Him are born again, and are reconciled back to The Heavenly Father through Christ's Great Sacrifice. Once you receive the gift of having your sins forgiven, and being accepted by God, you should always glorify and honor God by your thoughts, words, and actions, having faith in God at all times. Many people want God to bless them, but they are unwilling to please and appreciate Him. "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him." Hebrews 11:6. Do not follow the world, which ignores and denies God. Ignore God at your own peril! Every moment in life is an opportunity to Believe God or to Reject Him. Always strive to demonstrate faith. Everything God does is Holy. Don't grieve the Holy Spirit by engaging in words or things that dishonor God. There is a legal saying that: ignorance of the law is no excuse. Just because a person does not know there is a law, is no excuse for breaking it. God says: "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge..." Hosea 4:6. Many people live their lives in total ignorance of God, and of His Ways. They know more about celebrities than they do about God. The world has captivated, distracted, and deceived them. "This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me." Matthew 15:8. How good a steward have you been, with every moment and opportunity, that God has blessed you with? Do you always exalt and glorify the true God, or do you worship your self by putting your own desires first? It is time for people to stop ignoring God, and to give Him preeminence and lordship in all areas. "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Matthew 6:33. "Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Psalm 37:4. The main problem that people face today is a lack of time spent in intimacy with God. Bible study and prayer are essential for anyone who desires to have a deep walk of fellowship and intimacy with The Lord. These have been replaced with many forms of entertainment and activities, that steal our time, and distance us from God. If people only knew how great and wonderful the benefits are from spending time with God in His Presence! Disobedience is rebellion against God's Sovereignty, treating Him as if He was removed from His Throne. Acknowledging that you are nothing apart from Him, is the key to staying in right relationship with God. To reverse the influence of pride, you must deny yourself, lay aside all sin, and follow Christ, who is the author and finisher of your faith. "Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith..." Hebrews 12:2. Humility shows God you are not concerned about yourself and you care about Him and love other people. When you love God, you will keep His Commandments. Many Believers feel they do not need to obey God. They are seriously hurting their relationship with Him, because they are denying, and ignoring, His Protocol. God's Promises and Blessings are conditional, and apply to those who believe, reverence, and obey Him. "If ye love me, keep my commandments." "He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him." John 14:15,21. "And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him. But whoso keepeth his word, in him verily is the love of God perfected: hereby know we that we are in him." 1 John 2:3-5. Maintain and Protect God's Presence against people and things that would disturb It. Avoid lack of consecration, disobedience, substitution of anything in Its place, or neglect, by being preoccupied.
