Sometimes, fellow believers can be the biggest source of hurt in our lives. Church people can dig their heels in on a subject and crucify those who think or feel differently. But, the story of the 2 blind beggars in Matthew 20 doesn't just deal with hostile followers - it also speaks to how we should pursue Jesus regardless of the "noise" around us. Keep persisting in prayer - keep crying out to the Lord!
Sometimes, we ask for things and say, "Yes, we are able" to handle whatever comes with our ask....but, we have no real clue as to what we are even saying! Take a look with us at 2 disciples who did just this....
Sometimes, Christians who have been in long-term Kingdom service feel that it's not fair for someone who has lived a blatantly sinful life and maybe been a jerk to everyone they ever knew still gets to have eternal life if they accept Jesus, say, on their deathbed. But, that's exactly what the parable in Matthew 20 guarantees....
Fellow believers, we will not withstand nor understand the current culture unless we see life with a Biblical worldview. Do you believe the Bible gives us absolute truths? Do you believe that Jesus lived a completely sinless life? Our world around us - mainstream culture - is moving far, far away from these standards....what will you do?
Murderers, liars, womanizers, drunks - insert your negative character adjective here. Despite our character flaws and even our sin, God still uses us. Look at people through Biblical to modern history - oh my! YET, the wretchedness of man is still no match for the grace and love of God. He can and will still use us.
Saints, do not be deceived - we aren't looking at years and years before end-time events come about....they are here! Get in the Word - see what it says about what is happening right before our eyes. Are you spiritually ready for what lies ahead?
Is there anything holding you back from fully committing to the Lord? Take a look with us at the life of the rich, young ruler who found the wealth of this life too much to give up for the promise of eternal life....
Is fear interfering with your faith?
Even in Jesus' day, the religious leaders had questions about when divorce was acceptable..."for any reason at all?" they asked. Jesus' response is a hard one to digest in our current culture - just as it was for them back then. But, His response is Truth and Life.....are we willing to live it out?
W hat is genuinely behind the unrest and growing grumblings in America? The enemy's job is to steal, kill, and destroy - and, he's having a hay-day in our land! We are not in a war with flesh and blood but with spiritual forces! Change can only come from fighting on our knees - not with each other.
Come with us as we travel back into the Old Testament for a lesson in how God views grumbling and complaining...hint - He doesn't take too kindly to it!
When radical change came in Ezra's day, he decided he wanted to know what God wanted out of him during the change. We, as believers, should be asking that same question as we go through the changes brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic....are we willing to ask that question - or, are we too busy pining for things to go back to the "same old way"?
Consider the advice a mom gives her son regarding qualities that belong to a Godly woman.
Discover where our real purpose comes from...spoiler alert - it's not from our own successes or efforts!
