Where Do You Stand?
Being a Christian is a lot more than walking down an aisle and saying a prayer. What kind of fruit are you bearing? Is there manifested evidence in your life that signifies a change has occurred? Have you truly repented and turned from your sins and put your faith and trust in Jesus? Do a heart check and see where you stand. You are either on fire for God and actively seeking and serving or you are not at all. A “Lukewarm” walk with God is no walk at all.
Religion = having a checklist, and making sure you meet the quota for today.
Having a relationship with Jesus will always be more important than meeting the quota for today. Doing everything on your checklist doesn’t matter. What matters is that you listen to that silent voice in the back of your…
"Holy Spirit You are welcome here. Come flood this place and fill the atmosphere. Your glory God is what our hearts long for. To be overcome by Your Presence, Lord."
Faith looks like arrogance to people who aren’t hearing from God.
When Jesus calls you out of the boat to walk on water, people will think you’re arrogant and putting too much confidence in yourself. From your perspective, it’s the exact opposite - you’re humbled and have absolutely no confidence in yourself because you’re putting ALL your confidence in God. That’s faith.
Haters gonna hate, from lack of faith
You show me a problem, I’ll show you Jesus Christ.
Tell me what’s wrong, I will point you to the One who will make it right.(via realcharlestonburks)
"And hope does not disappoint us, because God has poured out His love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom He has given us."
Prayer can be ugly. You can have snot dribbling down your face, eyes redder than rusted metal, facial expressions like a ghoul and higher pitched noises than a banshee. God looks at our hearts when we pray, not how ‘attractive’ it is.
No love life, grade, status, wealth, person, relationship, amount of money, or position can secure you and give you the peace, happiness and contentment that a relationship with Jesus Christ can. Always remember that, beloved. He is the only sufficiency we’ve all been looking for.
Is it hot in here or is that just the Holy Spirit burning inside of you?
