Jesus can only be what you preach Him to be…

Jesus can only be what you preach Him to be… The Holy Spirit can only bless what you say about Jesus. The Spirit cannot bless what you do not say about Him. If “this same Jesus,” the very “Jesus whom Paul preaches,” is preached now, the Spirit of God will confirm it. Preach a limited Jesus, and He can not be Himself. He does not save unless you preach a Savior. He does not heal unless you preach the Healer. How many are guilty of stripping our precious Lord; men stripped Him once for His crucifixion. Unbelief strips Him again of His power. He is no longer mighty to save and heal in many a church. To use Paul’s expression, He is “restricted” in our lives, which means “hemmed in with no room to work” (2 Corinthians 6:12). Again we read in Mark 16,20 “And they went out and preached everywhere,…

The Cross of Christ

Outside of the cross of Jesus Christ, there is no hope in this world. That cross and resurrection at the core of the Gospel is the only hope for humanity. Wherever you go, ask God for wisdom on how to get that Gospel in, even in the toughest situations of life. ~Ravi Zacharias~ [subscribe2] Please visit: www.lightforlifeinspirations.com www.facebook.com/groups/eternitymatters www.facebook.com/lightforlifepage www.facebook.com/sayaprayerforme www.facebook.com/theanswerIvefound www.facebook.com/lovewithoutexpectationspage www.facebook.com/theanswersivefound

Holding out the word of life

                            “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to rejoice greatly because I did not run [my race] in vain nor labor without result.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:16‬~ The passage goes…  “Do everything readily and cheerfully—no bickering, no second-guessing allowed! Go out into the world uncorrupted, a breath of fresh air in this squalid and polluted society. Provide people with a glimpse of good living and of the living God. Carry the light-giving Message into the night so I’ll have good cause to be proud of you on the day that Christ returns. You’ll be living proof that I didn’t go to all this work for nothing.” ‭‭~Philippians‬ ‭2:14-16‬~ The Message Translation “holding out and offering to everyone the word of life” “holding up the…

I count it but loss, for the sake of the cross…

“But whatever former things were gains to me  [as I thought then],  these things  [once regarded as advancements in merit] I have come to consider as loss  [absolutely worthless] for the sake of Christ [and the purpose which He has given my life].” ‭‭~PHILIPPIANS‬ ‭3:7‬~ In the last 3 years out of the 33 or so years, I have been a conscious Christian I have only just started to grasp the meaning of this verse.  It was around 3 years ago that I awoke to the most important realization of my life.  The message of the gospel is life-saving and all people need saving. The mission truly became real to me.  Since that time as the urgency of the gospel message took hold, everything in my life began to change, suddenly the things that used to count seemed so unimportant, so vain, so temporal, so plastic The words of Ecclesiastes…

I want to be in that number!

  Are we on the cusp of His return? I think so, but regardless of what I think the signs of his return are practically fulfilled. No one knows the day nor the hour but we know the signs of His coming. We want to be in the number “when the saints go marching in” 🎶 He will come when that last ‘number’ is in. Will we be ready and waiting? How much do we long for our families and friends to be in that number? It’s time to pray, to turn with full hearts to our God, to submit ourselves to him, to seek him and I pray, be found carrying out his will through his plan for each of our lives. Is Jesus coming back soon? I think so! Maybe yes! maybe no? But we should live with this thought fresh in our minds as if he was.…

VIEW POINTS AND STANDPOINTS

VIEW POINTS AND STANDPOINTS “Just because someone looks right and talks right doesn’t mean they are right! Ask God for ‪#‎discernment‬“ ~Paula White~ A comment that followed this quote was “Be careful with who you trust the devil was once God’s most beautiful Angel”   This is a very timely message for all of us. The bible says that in the last days there will be a great deception, and that is already happening around us. There are all kinds of messages preached that ‘sound’ good at first, and I see Christians liking the messages by the hundreds. Interestingly these messages line up more with the world’s view point but don’t line up with a biblical stand point…   A pastor of mine once preached a message that churches need ‘the word’ and ‘the spirit in equal proportions’. He said it you are more word based then you can possibly…
