Foundation

In an age where truth is laugh at and morals are nonexistent, we as Believers need to make sure that we are rooted and grounded in the Faith. ¬†This post is not really written for the babies in Christ, this is written with the season saints in mines.We are entering into turbulent times all sense of decency and order is gone. ¬†To hear a minister speak foundational truth is rare. We have enter a time where we as a body sing and shout about fruit that we will never harvest because we have no roots. ¬†At the core of our being Jesus has to have preeminence and if that is not true in your life, are you really a follower of Christ. Being a follower of Christ has nothing to do with what church you attend, or how holy you pretend to be. It doesnt matter how talented you are or your rank and position in the church. It doesn’t matter how beautiful your voice, your voice can be so wonderful that angels weep when you sing. You can wear long dresses, you can walk around carrying a family bible bigger than a 40 year old midget. All of that is counted as nothingness, if God is not just the head of your life but He is your life. If you are not willing to sacrifice your all for Him, like the father of our faith Abraham, than you not fit for the kingdom. If you haven’t counted up the cost, denied yourself daily, and carrying your cross with holy joy and peace, than do you really believe. ¬†We sit in church Sunday after Sunday, but we don’t make real progress, nothing changes but the day.

I challenge you to fall in love with Jesus again. I beg you to begin spending time in His presence, that is how you become rooted and grounded in the Faith. ¬†Start your day in faith, refuse to make a move without consulting God first. Don’t let church just be something you attend a day or two a week, let it be where you are the church, where ever you find yourself at, you know God is with you because God resides in the Tabernacle of your Heart. And when we get back to that, than we will carry the glory.

Benhur

It is very rare that a movie comes out that really touches my soul.  However, the movie Benhur, really enriched my life.  It made me reevaluate whether I am truly a follower of the true Gospel of Christ.  Do I really walk in the fruit of the spirit? Do I really love my neighbor as myself? Its easy to quote scriptures.  It is not hard to go to Church or read the Bible.

I think the reason why I was so blessed by this movie, because I have been noticing lately my tendency to lash out in anger.  That I have a heart problem. I am a soft hearted person like Benhur, but after getting betrayed over and over and getting my heart crushed repeatedly, there is a root of bitterness that is vestering in my soul. That like the main character I use my anger to push me to survive.  I am surviving but am I truly living.  It is so easy for me to hold grudges and be unforgiving. I am not excusing or condoning my behavior, I am being transparent. I think it is time for the church to be honest and real. We are all struggling with something. I am exposing my bitterness, because nothing heals by being covered.

Faith is a Decision

Faith is a decision, it is not an emotion or a feeling. ¬†Faith is praising God even in a state of pain or inner turmoil. Faith is only mastered once it’s tried in fire, and after the fire burns out your faith is still there. ¬†You will never understand the cost of God’s favor on your life until your faith has been tested.

Do you or I really have faith? Will we serve God when He tells us no? Will we still be singing His praises if our love one dies, spouse walks away with no explanation, we lose our job, we are betrayed? Will we still quote scripture, when we do everything right and it still turns out wrong? Can I stand on His promises even when Heaven is silent?

These are true teachings of Christ.  He never promised us a life filled with rainbows, happiness, and puppies. He did promise us, a cross to bear and suffering. I think we as followers of Christ, has mislead a generation until a false sense of Christianity. Christianity is a religion of suffering and overcoming and persevering even under immense hardship. Our reward was never promised on this side of Heaven. The book of Hebrews speaks of people, followers of the one true God who died in Faith, who died without the promises of God fulfilled in their earthly lifetime.  I too have realized that I have been bamboozled into believing in a fraudulent form of Christianity.  I have to remind myself that I have surrendered my life to a suffering Christ. If my Lord and Savior suffered why do I feel surprised when I wake up in tears.
