Meekness

James 1:20-“For the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God”.

I think we all could learn from this passage. God does not want or need us to be forceful and angry with people concerning the Gospel but instead with love and meekness.

Have You Been Crucified?

Galatians 5:24-“And those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.”

Galations 5 24

Hello everyone; I hope your weekend is going magical! As I get closer to my Disney World vacation in October, you will slowly see many references to said mouse. Hope they don’t get too annoying but Mickey is a pretty big deal to the Fischer Family. 🙂

So, about my question, have you been crucified? Its really an important question because without it, you are 10 steps behind where you need to be; or should I say where you could be…See the Bible could not be more clear about our relationship with Christ and what is required. We do have to be careful because we still live in a sin filled world and will continue to sin in ways we don’t even realize until the resurrection. However in this case, intent means almost as much as the action itself.

Clearly God does not want us nailed to a Cross like Jesus did; that would negate the need for Jesus as then we could take care of our own sin problem. He does however want us to nail our passions and desires there instead. For example; how many times a day do you say, “I want this” or “my passion for life is this”. I do it, you do it, we all do it, but that is because we haven’t fully given ourselves to Him. Still clinging on to Lucifer’s realm with that last tiny bit of hope that we can stay in control. That way we can put Jesus on the shelf for the big things while still controlling our destiny. WRONG; its not the way it works folks.

I blame in part the Church; we preach this message of “I can do anything through Christ Jesus” which is very true but NOT from OUR passions and OUR desires but HIS! See, you can’t put the cart before the horse here; to achieve all that we are meant to achieve, our flesh (OUR passions and desires) must be crucified and then replaced with those of our Lord. THEN through Christ Jesus we can do all things. See the difference?

Makes me so mad when I hear this preached wrong for it is another form of bondage that most Christians can never escape from. Always wondering why they can never achieve what is “on their heart to do”. Why things never work out the way they want them to; this folks is why. You MUST crucify the flesh and all that it wants!

Friends, it comes in steps. So today I ask you, what is one passion or want that you can give to Lord to put on the Cross? Just one simple thing for God, can you do that? I assure you, He will replace that with something more fulfilling than anything you could have imagined……Have a great Sunday peeps!

Glorifying God

Reblogging for my peeps!

All You Need is Jesus

A life that glorifies God is a life that reveals God

Beth Moore

Image result for please God not manDoes my life glorify God? In all that I say and do, does my life reflect Him? It’s a question I ask myself constantly.

Life can get overwhelming at times, we all know this. And in those difficult times, are we focusing on the Creator rather than the created? Is our focus half-hearted? Or does our light shine before men, oozing out Christ’s love for others?

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

Repent?

Repent

Matthew 3:2- “Repent! For the Kingdom is at hand”

Happy Sunday friends! Again its good to be back. This little cold of mine just does not want to go away but carry on I will. Please continue to keep this family in your prayers as the Enemy is doing everything he can in his limited power to hurt us and keep us down. What he doesn’t realize is that through Christ we are Warriors and while we may get knocked down from time to time, we have already won the war. Same goes for all of you that know Jesus as Savior today, Amen?

Repenting…that is a word in the Bible that means a lot of different things in a lot of different ways depending on the context in which it is used. The main one that I hope at least everyone agrees on is that when you ask Jesus to be your Savior and live for Him, you must confess your sins and “turn around” from them to lead a different life. Despite false teaching to the contrary that does not mean you will never sin again, it simply means that those things which you had no choice to engage in before, you now have the choice to turn away from because Jesus has broken the chains of slavery. Amen?

The other meaning, which is less taught in most churches these days, is that repentance is an ongoing event and if done correctly can expose you to the Kingdom that Jesus was talking about in His ministry. Many people confuse the Lord’s return with the “Kingdom being at hand”. Some think Jesus and His disciples thought He would return before that generation passed away but what He was really saying was that through a daily, true repentant heart, the Kingdom of Heaven can be yours right now! Does that mean that you can be perfect here? No, but Jesus left us clues about a way we can live right now that will provide a new level of hope, understanding, and love that most believers will never experience until we get to Heaven.

So today we all have a choice; we can repent to be forgiven (which is the first step in our relationship with Christ) and stop there, OR we can repent daily heck even sometimes hourly and see a whole new world exposed to us. I so strive to get to that point in my walk with Jesus; I have been there a few times only to allow the Enemy to knock me back down. What is your choice today? Are you satisfied with being forgiven or do you want to be forgiven AND carry out a important mission from God? As always the choice is yours friends! Have a great Sunday!

Agape love,

David
