To Be Near God

Something to think about.

To Be Near God

28 But for me it is good to be near God;
   I have made the Lord God my refuge,
   that I may tell of all your works. Psalm 73:28 (ESV)

It’s a choice, you choose to be near God, you choose to accept His protection, you choose to tell of His wondrous works.  As for me I choose Him every day, as for you ?????

Strategy

Something to think about.

Strategy

The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him. John 5:15  (ESV)

Today, we have devised strategies to evangelize the world. We have large evangelistic organizations creating successful campaigns, sharing the good news of Christ. We have systems designed to encourage and exploit every opportunity to advance the gospel.  Yet, what still remains the most successful strategy is you telling your friends and neighbors “it is Jesus who saved me.” God has always intended that your story be the driving force of revival. All other efforts while useful and productive will never rival the individual that tells his story to his friend. It is the story of what Christ did for you that will change the world.  Share your testimony.

Author of Life

Something to think about.

Author of Life

15 and you killed the Author of life, whom God raised from the dead. To this we are witnesses. Acts 3:15 (ESV)

In one verse Christianity is defined. Jesus Christ, the “Author of Life, ” was killed and resurrected by God, and by faith and belief in the word of God “we are the witness” of this.

Faithful

Something to think about.

Faithful

9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1 John 1:9 (ESV)

We may think this verse is about confession and cleansing, which it is, but it is more about faithfulness. It is about God’s continual faithfulness in forgiving us of our sin.  We could confess into eternity, but if He were not faithful to forgive, our confession would be pointless.

Strong and Courageous

Something to think about.

Strong and Courageous

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
 
If you don’t “go” anywhere if you don’t attempt anything, this scripture does not apply to you. If you do not venture beyond your safe zone, you need not be strong or courageous.
