Why do people?

Why Do People
Why do some people profess to be Christians while their character betrays them? Why do they claim to be Christian parents but fail to raise  their children in the way of the Lord, without instilling godly virtues in them? Why are they failing to do the right thing in breeding their children but blames the society in the future?
They buy cartons of alcoholic drink in every occasion but claim to be building a Christian home. When celebrating their children's birthday we hear all sorts of secular songs been played.  They dance to all manner of music and dance steps. Do they really know who they are? Have you not observed that even unbelievers understand what it means to be born again? Yes they do! They are blind because they are unsaved but they know what they expect from people that are born again. Have you not heard an unbeliever say, see pastor dey play Celine Dion ooo, fake pastor! That's because they know that such song does not bring glory to God and is not fitting for a believer.
To proceed, let's consider Col.3:16 which says, "16 Let the word [spoken by] Christ (the Messiah) have its home [in your hearts and minds] and dwell in you in [all its] richness, as you teach and admonish and train one another in all insight and intelligence and wisdom [in spiritual things, and as you sing] psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with [His] grace in your hearts"
When the Word of Christ is dwelling richly in your heart, there will be no place for immoral songs excepts songs that bring glory to God with grace in your heart.

Some people have been the same for 10years, no change. Yet they are in church, workers in different departments, always available but their personal walk with God is zero. How long will it take us to mature? I remember when I got born again, there were evidential evidences that change has come, whereas there were some lifestyles that took time but as I kept studying God's word some of those things left on their own, the word of God had it's way in my life and I started seeing myself in the light of His word and became a better Christian by the day. If men can't see some evidential change in you after you have being born again, then your born again is questionable.

It is quite disheartening when I attend a Pastor's wedding and see them dancing to secular and immoral songs at the reception. What! Did they suddenly forget who they are? We are to sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs, making melody to God with grace in our hearts. Come on! 
We can't keep conforming to the world, we must be transformed by the renewing of our mind. We are ambassadors. The kingdom we represent has a pattern that we must comply with. There is a lifestyle already, don't bring yours to the kingdom, no! You accept the kingdom lifestyle as you become a part of it. God won't change His standard for anybody. I love you with the love of the Lord and I want to see you make heaven.
