Use It or LOSE IT ...... Got Jesus?

“Then Jesus asked them, “Would anyone light a lamp and then put it under a basket or under a bed? Of course not! A lamp is placed on a stand, where its light will shine. For everything that is hidden will eventually be brought into the open, and every secret will be brought to light. Anyone with ears to hear should listen and understand.” Then he added, “Pay close attention to what you hear. The closer you listen, the more understanding you will be given—and you will receive even more. To those who listen to my teaching, more understanding will be given. But for those who are not listening, even what little understanding they have will be taken away from them.”” ‭‭Mark‬ ‭4:21-25‬ ‭(Mark 4:21-25)NLT‬‬
Who would hide the fact that just met the most wonderful person in the world and that they will be married? Why would someone not tell everyone about a great time they just experienced? Why are we quiet about our Savior? Why are we afraid to tell others? Why won't we pursue Him even more? Why be satisfied with just a little bit of a good thing? We all have heard it said that if you don't use it, you will lose it. That goes for muscle, talent, and most everything in life. While the Bible tells us we are sealed by the Holy Spirit (Ephesians 4:30), we must be SURE of our relationship with Christ. Do not take it lightly. Are YOU sure? Then WHAT are you hiding and WHY?
