Brothers and Sisters this is a video I encourage you to watch by Ali from Rend Collective Experiment.
We can harden people to the message of the Gospel by being rude, & at the same time being vocal that we are Christians. Be gentle not perfect.
Today let me reassure you that God knows right where you are, and He knows how to get you to where you need to be. Even when things don’t go the way you planned, His hand is on you. Do not be afraid. Trust that God is working behind the scenes on your behalf, and that He will lead you into the life of blessing that He has prepared for you.
Work has been very busy this past week, not just for me, but for others around me. A good friend of mine text me tonight asking for a bible verse for encouragement and support. I decided to send him Philippians 2:14-16.
Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of Godwithout fault in a warped and crooked generation. Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky as you hold firmly to the word of life. And then I will be able to boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor in vain.
If anyone would like to share verses that help them through pressing times, please share and help speed the love of God.
The essence of Christianity is not merely a code of conduct but a covenant relationship with Christ.
You thought you were going to be made into a decent little cottage: but He is building a palace.
—C S Lewis
Did you know that God has already recorded every part of your life from the beginning to the end? He knows every disappointment, every loss, every challenge; and the good news is that with Christ, your story ends in victory! God has written out a plan to bless and prosper you. When you choose His plan, your final chapter concludes with you fulfilling your God-given destiny. Here’s the key: when you go through a disappointment, when you go through a loss, don’t stop on that page in your life. You’ve got to decide to keep moving forward. There’s another chapter in front of you, but you’ve got to be willing to take the next step.
To learn and grow my relationship with God, I have been using The Purple book where I came across this:
"To say we must trust and obey Christ doesn’t mean salvation depends on our being perfect. Rather, following Jesus as Lord is the attitude of complete surrender and obedience to Jesus Christ."
In other words; don’t worry about being perfect and faultless. Our Lord Jesus Christ loved us so much that he died for our sins. We are saved by the grace of God, not for our good deeds. This revelation will change your heart and mind forever and in return God only asks for our love.
Three of the hardest things to say:
I was wrong.
I am sorry.
I love you.
Love this song.
