So here is something on my heart ..... My whole life i never heard all these different styles of "Christian" music and I never remember hearing about how God loved me in the fashion that he does. I'm very curious of something , was it ever portrayed to me in a loving Fashion ? Some say "well ,lead a lost soul to the church" Jesus said take the Church to the Lost Soul . see our problems today are these! 1. We invite people to church, tell them God loves them , but tear them to peices like a dog when they stumble. 2. We invite them to church , right after telling that filthy joke at work. 3. We invite them to church , after sitting in the bar and defiling ourself. 4. We invite them to church , after living the way We as flesh see fit. then they say ..well why am i going to hell if "they " arent ? 5. We invite the waitress or waitor to church , after making a filthy mess like an animal and not tipping but a couple of bucks. OR......My personal favorite 6. I'm not going to Invite them to church, this is the bible belt. they know God is real, they know where they need to be ...... My friends if theses are you, I pray you speak with My Father about them and make it right. Daddy said it was his will that ALL be saved. The Bible says if you seek Gods face and Eat of his word, and apply it to your life that even your enemies will have nothing against you. (apply them to "YOUR" life, not everyone elses) . The most influencial Christians i have encountered in my old Lost state....Loved me and accepted me for who i was. They made it clear that they would not be a part of my devilish ways or be around them, but when i was in their environment or just out in public. They always showed concern for me.........here is a Life verse for. Let your light so shine before men , that they may see "YOUR" good works, and glorify "YOUR" Father which is in heaven. Matt 5:16.
1 Cor 15.1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; 15.2 By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. 15.3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; 15.4 And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: 15.5 And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: 15.6 After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. 15.7 After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. 15.8 And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. 15.9 For I am the least of the apostles, that am not meet to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 15.10 But by the grace of God I am what I am: and his grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain; but I laboured more abundantly than they all: yet not I, but the grace of God which was with me. 15.11 Therefore whether it were I or they, so we preach, and so ye believed. The belief of Christ's death and resurrection, is the foundation of Christianity. Remove this, and all our hopes for eternity sink at once. And it is by holding this truth firm, that Christians stand in the day of trial, and are kept faithful to God. We believe in vain, unless we keep in the faith of the gospel. This truth is confirmed by Old Testament prophecies; and many saw Christ after he was risen. Paul was highly favoured, but he always had a low opinion of himself, and expressed it. When sinners are, by Divine grace, turned into saints, God causes the remembrance of former sins to make them humble, diligent, and faithful. He ascribes to Divine grace all that was valuable in him. True believers, though not ignorant of what the Lord has done for, in, and by them, yet when they look at their whole conduct and their obligations, they are led to feel that none are so worthless as they are. All true Christians believe that Jesus Christ, and him crucified, and then risen from the dead, is the center and substance of Christianity. All the apostles agreed in this testimony; by this faith they lived, and in this faith they died. Can you say this day that you hold true to the Gospel of Christ ?
