As A God called Preacher it is not my job to make as many people feel as bad about themselves as possible…….. It is my responsibility to study how to present the Truth well and trust the Holy Spirit to convicts the hearts of those who hear me.. Its all about the Anointing of the Holy Spirit. If we are preaching truth correctly; the Holy Spirit will take care of His business ; people will see their sin, and turn in Repentance to the Lord Jesus Christ. Or…. they will reject truth at that moment and run away. Either way…. I am to stick strictly with the Word and Trust God for the Harvest. I can’t make it happen…. I can only be a willing vessel to be used as the Master see’s fit….
When you are spiritually revived, you will think about the spiritual state of the people that you rub shoulders with every day. It is inevitable that when your heart is revived and close to God, you will have a concern for the lost.
“It can not be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians, not on religions, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ!” Patrick Henry..
Bad men cannot make good citizens. It is when a people forget God that tyrants forge their chains. A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom. No free government, or the blessings of liberty, can be preserved to any people but by a firm adherence to justice, moderation, temperance, frugality, and virtue; and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles.” Patrick Henry..
Keep your focus on what Jesus has called you to accomplish…. Do not try to be anyone else. Be who God created you to be. And on those days when you feel discouraged by obstacles and difficulties or the careless words and thoughtless actions of others……. Realize…. that the Bible says your life is HID WITH CHRIST IN GOD!!!! You cannot be any longer wounded deeply by words of the enemy IF you live, though very much alive in body, with YOUR HEART ALREADY IN THE HEAVENS……
Thought for the day… Heresay is fodder for the enemies canon.. half stories with half truths are whole lies and the. Bible says talebears separate close friends…. Walking in the truth doesn’t just mean knowing the Bible…. free us Lord from gossip and let our ears and tongue discern….
n the hectic world we live in; sometimes we must Catch up to happiness……… Thats why in our countries founding documents of freedom we are guaranteed Life, Liberty and the pursuit of happiness! Happiness is not automatic. We must pursue it and it is found in one person: Jesus Christ….. Happiness is also a choice.So, Chase Christ and Live Happy!!!!
God wants to replace those Question marks in your life with a period; or even an exclamation point….. Lets run the doubt out and allow Faith to flourish!
I do not like it when folks try to put me in a spiritual (or any other kind) of box…… I don’t care for labels other than Christian…. I just tell folks when they ask that i am a Reformed Bapticostalerian…… But more importantly I am a follower of Jesus Christ the only savior of the world!
