SALVATION

 

“In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.'” (John 3:3, NIV)

I laugh when I hear born again believers say they are out of work.  You seem God has plenty of work for us to do.  In fact, He gave us a job of telling people about Christ and many think it’s something that we aren’t supposed tp do.  In fact, if your family or friends are anything like mine you will get the strongest reaction from them when you let them know that you are born again.  And that reaction most likely won’t be that great!   People who really like you realize that they don’t so much.  They just thought they did.  You are quietly ostracized mainly by Christians who feel you are a tad too serious.  It happens so much…that you get used to it.  You have two choices at this point…(cause its a test) because you can either scale it back (your zest and enthusiasm) or you can keep praying, keep staying before God…ignoring all of the people and their views…keep being you!   I do not have time to evaluate what others are doing…because the devil tries his best to get me off course…but Hod daily loads me with benefits!   And I’m so glad.  Stsy on course…remember why you’re here and complete your mission!

 

 

18And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.

19Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen. Matthew 28: 18-20

Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. 2 Timothy 2: 15

Let a man examine himself, etc. To see whether he can eat in loving remembrance of the death of Christ. 1 Corinthians 11: 28

Your family is waiting for you to say something to them. They’re expecting it! God needs someone to stand in the gap for your family to be saved and it’s going to have to be you. You’re going to have to examine yourself. Trust me that this is a faith builder; especially after you begin to see results. It’s not going to be your neighbor across the street and in many cases it won’t be them, so it’s going to have to be you. You’re not only going to have to pray, but also minister to them and in some cases bring them to Christ. You may not be able to get them to church; but you can bring them to Christ and let God do the rest.

You’ve got to get your mind off of you and on to them. You’ll be Blessed if you will do this.
