Called Too? Two.

Persevere!

This is an old fashioned word that appears not to be much in circulation today, yet it is a very active word for all believers to refuse the ways and the things of the world?

The world is telling us today that we deserve our freedoms to everything we want, and many believers are falling for this lie? Instead of persevering and refusing they are accepting and opening themselves up to evil!

God expects us to be obedient to Him and to the cost of Jesus shedding His blood on the cross/stake/tree for us!. Even before the cross Jesus’ back was like a ploughed field, this atonement is very precious indeed but many today either refuse to see or throw it away for temporary pleasures?

Genesis 32:24-28,  1 Kings 8:52-58,  Mark 14:38,   Ephesians 6:18,   1 Peter 2:24,   1 John 3:7.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

Looking Foward.

That is part of what every New Year is about, we have a time to reflect on the past year between Christmas and the New Year but now we are hoping for better things!

The bible always manintains that emphasis of looking forward to Jesus’ return and our going home to be with the Master. We are warned not to dwell on the past, but race to the futures.

Luke 9:62,  Phillipians 3:12,  Hebrews 11:16,  2 Peter 3:12.

Christian Legacy. Part-One.

About two-thouand Years?

It is a natural state for us humans to always want to look back and think that the past was better than now, and so this is the same with Christianity.

The past was actually as hard as it is now to be a believer, but our advantage is that we are nearer to Eternity than the believers in Jesus day and the early Church.

Acts 2, Revelation 21:6,  22:13.

Which First? Part-Three.

Your Choice.

Even as believers we sometimes find ourselves slipping back into our old ways, but this should not be. We really have to make a crucial choice are we going to the ways of the world or are we going to continue to follow Jesus.

This is for each one of us to choose, salvation or damnation. There is no where in the bible the doctrine of once saved always saved, some clever people have twisted the scriptures to suit their own failur and try to justify sin.

God Does not.

Matthew 6:24,  Luke 16:13,  Revelation 3:15.

Walking with the Holy Spirit. Part-Two.

‘A Crucified Christian.’

Are we done with the world and all the bright lights of its dung and muck, have we surrendered ourselves completly to Jesus. This does not mean wearing uncomfortable cloathing or beating ourselves, but rather we have promised to allow the Holy Spirit of the Trinity to work in us a New creation.

When we have done with Sin, it does not mean that we will not be tempted by the Devil! But rather our will, will be stronger to resist him. We will be inclined to let attacks and disputes from other ‘Christians go by, like water on a ducks back.

We may still be hurt and offended, cut up inside, but we will push on and not show it.

Galatians 5:24-26,  James 3:14-16,  1 Peter 2:11,  Revelation 11:11.

Good Merit. Part-Three.

‘No back doors.’

God had no other way set in place for people to be saved, no one will get into heaven unless they place their faith and trust in Jesus death and resurrection from the grave.It remains a simple message that we either take or leave.

Many people believe that by their good works and deeds this will be enough, but you have to believe first. After then you will have plenty of time to apply the Gospel message.

John 10:1-18,  Matthew 22:8-12,  John 3:3,  1 Corinthians 15:3-4,   Revelation 21:27.
