(KJV.) HEBREWS 13:5-6
(5) Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
(6) So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.
WHO IS THIS ENEMY?
Brethren, this world is full of fleshly distractions; as believers, let us be in spirit to know when we are being watched by others, tempted by the enemy to walk in ungodliness, resit the devil and he will flee away; however, due to human natures, many times, believers have being tempted by the enemy, failed, and acted sinfully against the Holy Spirit: even so; as it is written, there is no one righteous, no not one. (Romans 3:10); as we all know, benefits of the sacred blood of Jesus avails much; when we confess our wrong doings, automatically we are forgiven entirely; regardless, let us watch how we relate to others, actions and behaviors, conversations and speeches; mean what we say, let our "yes's be yes" and "nay's be nays", avoid being a wishy-washy, walk in integrities; for we are shinning examples of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Therefore, to exemplify ourselves with Jesus Christ, it is imperative that we endeavor to walk in his statutes, know what attributes to emulate and what not to indulge: we cannot do what everybody is doing and be chosen, set aside people at same times; there ought to be a difference between our actions and behaviors from people whose eyes are blindfolded in darkness of this world; especially when the Holy Spirit indwells our hearts on daily basis; he requires us to behave ourselves wisely, does not condone sinful attributes, therefore, he convicts, reproves and guides his chosen vessels in his righteousness; if we do not stay connected enough through prayers, readings and hearings of his words; in other to resist dictates of the flesh, lighten our ways out of temptations, we cannot understand his ways, have better relationships with him; he is just like a person, but a light force, lives within our hearts to guide our footsteps in his righteousness into eternal lives.
In today's text, Apostle Paul advises believers not to desire greediness of this world; inordinately desire wealth or possessions; but to be satisfied with what we already have; that Jesus will never leave us alone, or give up on us; therefore, with Jesus Christ alone, we are majority; if we have him on our side, who can be against us?; and we are blessed; for he owns this world, he is the life force of creation, he has power to kill, destroy and make alive; who can overshadow his glory?; even the devil, crumbles at the mention of his Holy Name; believers, there is nothing to fear, worry or have anxieties about; Jesus is in absolute control, let us trust and believe in him; regardless of what may be our troubles of today, there is a deliver, his name is Jesus!; call upon him, there is power in his Holy Name Jesus forevermore.
Dearly beloved, many times, believers do not know who they are in this world; when the devil and his demonic entities pester with our souls; if we know who we really are, that Jesus our redeemer has more powers to counteract their evil actions; we will not fear but call upon the name of Jesus whenever we need him; it does not matter how many times we call upon him, so long as there are tangible reasons why we call upon his name; Jesus does not get tired of coming to our rescues, or hearing our voices sing or pray to him; he is very compassionate, always ready to deliver our souls, solve our problems, bless his people; therefore, let us not keep him out of our lives; but get closer to him than before, have one on one relationship with him, trust and believe, enjoy freedom and life forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
