Have you recently asked Jesus Christ to come and live in your heart and life? If you did… CONGRATULATIONS on the biggest and best choice any person will ever make in their lives!
Now, where do you go from here? This is the first part of a new series I’ll be doing on what it means to be a new believer and what it means to be a Christian.
This is NOT a short podcast, but it’s about 19 minutes long.
So get your Bible and something to “sip on” while we see what the Word has to say about this mis-taught subject.
Why? Because I’m a Christian. (You’re thinking, “what is he talking about?” Goals are good!)
I’m NOT saying it’s wrong to have goals and hopes and dreams, but I’m saying that anything you think you’ll be attaining from your own efforts is a weak “resolution.”
We need help. Otherwise, there wouldn’t be a “Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers” for people wanting to diet.
When we finally realize we need help too, we’ll be on our way to reaching God centered goals in our lives.
My goal for this year? Keep “religion” as far away from me and my family as possible… Happy New Year!
Trying to bring the law into Grace is like “trying to fuel your car with straw”…
We use to have horses as a means of transportation, but we can’t “carry over” into a car, what was never meant to be used now.
Traditions and continued “wrong teaching” are the reason why so many are still “trapped” to a life of two worlds in the church.
And yet, it was considered to be in the same family as “sexual immorality, idol worship and the “BIG” ones” most preachers screech out at people.
But I don’t hear any one talking about it…
It is offensive to God… and especially coming from a Christian.
Maybe if I tithe enough… God will open the “windows of heaven” for me…
Maybe if I work harder to “be good” and do good… I’ll be healed.
Maybe if I fast longer God will… answer my prayers more.
And on and on the “false teachings” go.
God’s provisions are not obtained by any of these “methods.”
The time is coming soon when every “thing” that could remind people of Jesus Christ will be “torn down.” A statue of Jesus, a cross, a painting or any other reminder of the Name of Jesus will be removed by this man. Why?… because they don’t believe He ever came. The Apostle Peter said it in his second letter and the world will see it happen…
Adding one drop of poison in a crystal clear glass of water, will still kill you if you drink it!
The same battle that the Apostle Paul fought is still being fought today.
The worst place to hang out if you’re a Christian…
No, it’s not a bar or any other stereotypical “sinners hangout”… It’s a spiritual hangout that made Jesus say, He would “spit you out of His mouth.”
Listen to the podcast and find out how, even when we find ourselves here, God STILL has a way out for us!
These three things are what stands in our way, every single day. Sometimes more than others.
Listen to the podcast and you’ll know exactly what I mean.
Think again my friend. There is SO much more than what we see with these eyes.
Let’s take a look at what things really are…
The people of the world that “mock” the Bible as being a “fairy tail,” are simply not knowledgeable of the facts. We all like “proof” of something being true or reliable.
The Bible includes “undeniable” facts. Why the church doesn’t spend more time on presenting these “facts,” I don’t understand.
In this podcast, I’ll share with you, the “miraculous facts” that prove Jesus IS the Messiah.
We all grow up physically, but some people barely grow in their Christian life.
We live in a big “tourist” area of America and people come here in winter to escape the bitter cold of the north. They only stay till their “home” area gets more comfortable for them and then, they’re gone!
They aren’t really “citizens” of our state… They’re just visiting.
That’s the same for us on this earth who have been “born again” in Christ. We are not citizens of this “world system” or of it’s ways.
Many believers are just very comfortable in this world system and this what Jesus talked about in this parable…
Sometimes we think it’s a history book. Sometimes we see it as a book about different people and their frailties.
And it contains all those elements, but it’s really many books about One Person. When you see it that way… your life will change forever!
John got it right when he said, “Jesus did many other things. If they were all written in books, I don’t suppose there would be room enough in the whole world for all the books.” John 21:25
He is “The Lord of Love”… He is the “Gospel, the Good News, the Lord of Love” and He proved it!
We deceive ourselves all the time. We believe the sales pitch that if we get that product, we’ll be so much better off than we are now…
It’s what our minds are focused on in this event and in our “events” that will get us the same results.
Yes, you must know He loves you, but there’s one more powerful thing you MUST get… if you’re a Christian!
