You men are of weak will, and the opponent of God tries everything, to take his advantage from it. Read more:

Serious striving for the kingdom of God.

13. October 1955. B.D. NR. 6376.

You all strive too little for the kingdom of God with its splendour - even so you stand in faith, that you enter into this kingdom in future - even so you want, that this kingdom may be your stay in future. You still do not take it seriously enough with your transformation to love, without which you can never ever take possession of the kingdom of God. Your will is still too weak, and you call too little him, who alone can give your will real strengthening. So long the world still exercises its attractions on you, so long you are also not completely devoted to him, who alone can open his kingdom with all splendour to you. You then want to still serve two masters, or else: The power of the one lord is still too great, than that you can leave him and completely devote yourselves to the other Lord. For to serve both lords at the same time is not possible, because their demands towards you are of complete opposing nature. But if you want to acquire the kingdom of God with all splendour, then you must separate yourselves from the world and all its attractions. You must summon your whole strength of will and consciously strive for that kingdom, otherwise you run the risk getting captured by the world, and you completely forfeit for yourselves the kingdom of God. You must decide in all seriousness; you must be aware of it, that only a strong will can reach the aim, and you must ask for this strong will, when you yourselves feel yourselves too weak, to resist the attractions through the world. The world can only offer you very little, measured at the splendour of that kingdom, which is not of this world - and to enjoy minutes or hours of happiness, you sacrifice the whole eternity. You are also not allowed to put it off, to seriously occupy yourselves with your aim. For you do not know, how long time still remains for you to do it; you do not know, when your last hour has come and whether you are not taken by surprise and can then do nothing any more for the salvation of your soul. For the indifference of a knowing is worse than the complete ignorance, in which a world man lives. But all are still impressed by the world, and a fighting against such temptations and desires is therefore very advisable. You all do not grasp the seriousness of the time. But many of you could free themselves from the world, who are believing, when they call Jesus Christ for help, for the strengthening of the will, for power, to resist the temptations. You men are of weak will, and the opponent of God tries everything, to take his advantage from it. The opponent of God will always touch you there, where you are still vulnerable. But you can free yourselves from him, for what your power does not manage, that the one does, who has died for you on the cross, to buy for you the favours of a strengthened will. Call him, when you are in the trouble of the soul - when the opponent of God applies his skills, when he entices you with the pleasures of the world; and you will suddenly recognize, how empty and stale that is, what has been put before the eyes by him. You will turn away and follow the call of him, who wants to open his kingdom for you, who would like to prepare for you all happiness in future in his kingdom.
Amen. B.D. NR. 6376.
