Where We Miss it
17.Brethren, join in following my example, and note those who so walk, as you have us for a pattern.
18.For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
19.whose end is destruction, whose god is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame—who set their mind on earthly things.
The second category Christians who miss it are the ministers of Christ who fails to walk worthy of their calling!
It so sadly and painfully happen that satan blinds some ministers of Christ and shift them like wheat and lead them to do his will.
You remember satan tried to shift Peter but Jesus prayed for him.
Such ministers become blinded by satan, they turn from the faith and begin to teach doctrines of demons, they focus on the things of the flesh and are greedy after the things of the earth and completely loose the vision of heavenly things.
They become enemies of the cross and Christ, twist scriptures for their own destruction! They were there in Paul’s days and are here with us today!
They have missed the mark …..and they are misleading the untaught, the unstable and the carnal immature believers through deceit!
How sad to miss the privilege of being called, appointed and anointed by Christ as His minister, but end up sacrificing such eternal privilege at the altar of fleshly and worldly lusts!!!!
I therefore beseech you dear fellow minister of Christ not to miss the mark of our heavenly calling in Christ Jesus. Amen.
