Kanye West is now a born-again Christian, can you believe it? Believe it! He searched so long for answers for his life, and then he met Christ. He is at peace now. Jesus has brought good answers and a reason-for-living that nothing else could bring.
I rejoice with Kanye. He has found the TRUE path to life. A newly born Christian needs to be careful to build their lives upon THE ROCK.
Matthew 7:24-25, “Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of mine and does them; I will liken him unto a wise man who built his house upon a ROCK. And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it did not fall for its foundation was upon a ROCK.”
If Kanye will build his life now upon the ROCK of Christ Jesus, then he will indeed have an ongoing good testimony. If he will live his life according to the words of God; it will be well with him. If Kanye will walk away from his godless music of the past, it will be a blessing to him. I pray that he will do just that. I pray that he will be diligent in his relationship with Christ and will persevere unto the end of his life.
Notice the passage says, “And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house.” Becoming a Christian absolutely does not keep trouble from coming to your life. Trouble will come. The floods will come. The winds will blow fiercely in your life at times. They will beat upon you. We must be careful to build upon the Rock of Christ Jesus, and if we do, then our lives will withstand all the storms that come.
Kanye must not let his fame interfere with his relationship with Christ. Kanye must not let his marriage to a beautiful famous woman compromise his relationship with Christ. Kanye must not let his wealth interfere with his relationship to Christ. Kanye must not let his celebrity status interfere with his relationship to Christ. Building your life on these things is the same as building upon sand, and that is what Kanye was doing before he met Christ.
Matthew 7:26-27, “And everyone, that hears these sayings of mine and does not do them, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand. And the rain descended and the floods came and the winds blew and beat upon that house, and it fell and great was the fall of it.”
I am praying for Kanye, that he will remain true to our God and Savior. I know he can do it, if he will keep his eyes upon Jesus, the Author and Finisher of our faith.
