Witnessing God's WAY

Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect. Romans 12:2

Hello Everybody! I'm really excited about this post because God is transforming those of us who WILL NOT copy or conform to the behaviors and customs of this world. There is a holy indignation arising among God's people, those who will not just accept the kings meat and drink. We are sold out to the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, and the stench of this world's ways we refuse to wear as our fragrance of choice. We choose the fragrance and ways of our King Jesus. We have drawn a line in the sand and we refuse to give the devil any place in our lives and ministries. We will not borrow from the enemy to make an impact for God. In the words of Apostle Blair, " God has His own stuff." What that means is when you and I witness and disciple others we don't have to dip into the devil's bag to make a point for God. The resources of God are unlimited and all we have to do is go to Him and let Him give us what we need to win and disciple others IN the Spirit and not IN the flesh. Flesh will corrode and can be corrupted but God is a Spirit and His Spirit is holy and eternal. As you witness use Godly examples, as you use illustrations, use what the Spirit gives you and leave the theatrics and enetrtainment to the world. I'm not saying we cannot be creative, I'm saying when we do it Jesus' way we will always get Jesus' results. God has been saving people for thousands of years without the devil's help, stick with God in all that you do for Him and you will never go wrong. (-:

Another Perspective

Matthew 4:4 Jesus answered, "Scripture says, 'A person cannot live on bread alone but on every word that God speaks.'" I have always embraced this Scripture and seen the extreme value of God's Word in my life. But while on vacation in Detroit, a homeless man in a wheel chair gave me yet another perspective regarding God's Word. As my brother and I were driving through the city, we noticed this older gentleman begging on the street corner. It was a record setting day for heat, and our hearts went out to him. As we sat at the light, I looked for some money to give him, but my brother just opened his wallet- grabbed a large bill and just before he jumped out of the car, I gave him a pocket Bible to give the man. The man's face just lit up then, and then he did something that I did not expect. As we drove by he waved that little Bible in the air, and smiled so hard that I just felt his joy. It wasn't the money that took him there it was God's Word. Here a man begging in 102 temperatures was rejoicing over the Word! I'm thankful that I brought these extra Bibles with me....God knew. As you witness or lend a helping hand remember it's God's Word that saves, transforms, and blesses. Have as much in you and on you as possible. (-:

JESUS Rules Today and YOU Do Too!!!

Colossians 2:8-10

8 See to it that nobody enslaves you with philosophy and foolish deception, which conform to human traditions and the way the world thinks and acts rather than Christ. 9 All the fullness of deity lives in Christ’s body. 10 And you have been filled by him, who is the head of every ruler and authority.

First of all HAPPY FRIDAY to you all! I can say that because THIS is the day that the LORD has made and the devil doesn't own anything!!! Today we are walking in the peace and power of God, and no traditions, deceptions, or worldy perceptions are going to bind us today or ever! As Christians we encourage you to seize every opportunity to make your faith in God's power known today! As people are fearful of today because of the relentless efforts of the enemy, look for opportunities to share your faith! Let people know that Jesus rules and reigns everyday and that God has not given you a spirit of fear but love, power, and a sound mind. We HAVE BEEN given dominion and authority...use yours today and help people break free from the "false fears" that surround today and SHOW and TELL them all about the goodness of the LORD. For example, pay for somebody's gas and tell them Happy Friday the 13th because Jesus is LORD today and everyday!!! Make somebody's Friday the 13th the best day ever!!! We will, and we hope you will join us. (=

Internal Affairs

For the sinful nature desires what is contrary to the Spirit, and the Spirit what is contrary to the sinful nature. They are in conflict with each other, so that you do not do what you want. Galatians 5:17
As you lead people to the LORD and/or disciple them let them know that the sinful actions that used to be easy for them, will NOW be a battle royale! That is why being filled with the Holy Spirit is so important. Holy Spirit guides us into all the truth of God. We never have to wonder what God thinks about something for any long period of time because Holy Spirit will tell us!!! Next, we see from the Scripture above that the Holy Spirit is NOT going to compromise, give in, or conform to the sinful nature. He is God the Spirit, and no matter how much we persist or want to do what we want to do, Holy Spirit is not co-signing anything we want unless God the Father approves. So we see that our sinful nature which is our mind, will, and emotions outside the will of God desires things that cause conflict. Why? So we don't do what WE want to. Notice....Holy Spirit desires for us what is contrary to our sinful nature. Every time we TRY to step out of God's will, the battle gets intense. That is when you start having some serious internal conflict and the peace of God leaves the temple! New believers often feel defeated and discouraged because some think when they accepted Christ they become untouchable! Meaning they won't be affected by temptation or anger etc....then when they give in to the old nature they don't "feel" Saved, and they want to denounce Christ. That is where we come into the picture, and we let them know that there is a battle going on, and the more they yield to God's Word and Spirit the more victorious, strong, and mature they will become. The conflict although heavy at times should also bring comfort. ??? Because if you or I were in a very bad place spiritually speaking there would be no conflict, just straight up sinning and darkness WITHOUT the conviction of God's Spirit. Internal conflict is internal conflict is bad.
