Vision with God! Two.

Knowing the need to be Free?

Freedom is the key to salvation through the good works of Jesus on the cross and His rising from the dead! Without faith that the son Jesus can set us free, we live in the vision of God daily!

There is no need of Mass, but instead the Communion table of believers in fellowship with God! We need no intercessor, since Jesus must be the focus of our prayers and relationship!

People both in the world and the Church will stop us from serving God, by making rules that imply it is they who are called and not anyone? This flies in the face of what the Apostle Paul said about himself, and the many that have followed in their personal relationship with Jesus!

John 3:15-21,  8:7,  32,  2 Corinthians 11:6,  1 Timothy 1:12-13.

Conduct. One.

Not what we once Were!

When we have come to know Jesus as our Lord and Saviour, there has to be a change in our mental attitudes? We are no longer the person we were, but now are more centred on God and following our Lord!

The Apostle Paul speaks to the early Churches about the need to keep their conduct pure or clean in Christ, we must not look back and act the way we were? Sadly today there are many who encompass themselves in Church activity and in the process loose sight of Jesus and what is expected of us by Jesus?

Colossians 3:1-25,  Romans 12:1-2,  Hebrews 10:26-29,  32-38.

Love. Part-Three.

The cost of Serving.

Believers have to serve and be served, if we refuse to do things in love we are of no profit to Jesus. Love cannot be mear words and noises from our mouths, it has to be actions expressed.

There are many oders in Christianity, of all the different kinds from Europe to the middle-east, the Americas to Russia and the far-east and they place the practice of faith in actions of love and kindness, sometimes at the cost of death.

The Apostle Paul said much to the eary Ekklesia about the need to practise love and we should take a few leaves from his fourrtenn letters of the New Testament?

1 Corinthians 14:1,  Galatians 5:22-26,  Philemon 8-10,  James 5:20,  1 John 3:1, 16.

Being Single. Part-Three.

Right Attitude.

The Apostle Paul was very wise in this subject, some people find his letters in the New Testament of the bible difficult to understand or they feel he is being contradictory.

This is not so and far from the truth, what he is saying to us is ‘I would like you to be single, as I am, but if you fall in love do the right thing and get married. But if you choose not to get married that is fine to as long as the other side is not hurt.

Basically don’t be single or get married with a selfish heart, attitude. Do not allow sin to enter your choice.

1 Corinthians 7:32,  35-36,  Psalm 55:22.

Being Single. Part-One.

Not for Everyone.’

In todays society it is almost a dirty word to say that you want to remain single, to not be in any relationship. Everyone wants to do what they want to do, be promiscuous and one shold loose their virginity as soon as they can.

Join in the crowd is the new peer presures being placed on young people, enjoy life. But the Apostle Paul wanted the single and the widows to remain as they are and there is nothing wrong with that.

1 Corinthians 7:8, 26-28.
