*FAITH STRONG*




God needs us his children to stand strong in our faith, knowing we are not alone when we find ourselves separated from our brothers and sisters in Christ. When we are firm in our faith, we bear witness of our Father in Heaven's love and righteousness. As Christians our Father God lives in our hearts and we can be one with each other. We do not sweat anything our Father’s adversary the devil can throw at us, for we have our Father’s wisdom and strength. See> (2 Tim 4:17-18) 17 Notwithstanding the Lord stood with me, and strengthened me; that by me the preaching might be fully known, and that all the Gentiles might hear: and I was delivered out of the mouth of the lion. … Having God helps us prevent the sins of the world from overtaking us. We will have no desire to lust over worldly things or what the devil and this world offers us. See> (2 Tim 4:18) 18 And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever.




My Final thoughts
Our Father in Heaven knows how rough things can become for his children and he understands us. He wants us to depend and trust in our faith that he’s here with us, and will rescue us from the mouth of a lion if need be... ‘Preacher, what must we do to keep God within our hearts at all times?’ Christians need to stay focused on God, keeping him fresh in us through prayer and reading his word. Only then will we be able to remain strong in him. Amen.



Let us pray together
Dear Lord. How wonderful it is to know you are in our hearts when our brothers and sisters are not near us. How awesome it is that you dwell with us, and your wisdom and strength will always be in us. For this Lord we will always remain grateful for our decision to accept you and live for you. In your name Jesus Christ, we pray. Amen.


May we all walk under our Lord and Savior's Guidance

Maintain An Attitude Of Faith.....

FAITH FOR YOUR MIRACLE

Miracles don't just happen. Faith is required and God's Word produces the faith necessary for miracles to take place. This is perfectly illustrated in Acts 14:8, take a look: "And there sat a certain man at Lystra, impotent in his feet, being a cripple from his mother's womb, who never had walked: the same heard Paul speak: who steadfastly beholding him, and perceiving that he had faith to be healed, said with a loud voice, stand upright on thy feet. And he leaped and walked." Hallelujah! Did you see that? Three things to take home from here.

(1) The man paid attention to God's Word.
(2) Faith came to him as he heard and released himself to the Word.
(3) That's how a miracle took place.

Now don't say: "When it happens to me, then I'll believe." No, it may never happen. This is why we teach God's Word so folks can understand how the Kingdom of God works. In Hebrews 4:2, the bible says: "For unto us was the Gospel preached as well as unto them: but the Word preached did not profit them, not being mixed with faith in them that heard it." See, here it talks about those who didn't benefit from the Word that was preached because they didn't MIX THE WORD WITH FAITH. So what are you going to do? Don't get passive with the Word. Respond in faith (by word or action) when God's Word comes to you and it will produce for you what it talks about. Hallelujah!

*WHAT WOULD YOU DO without God?*

(Romans 11:36) 36 For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.



Without God!
I would not be alive to write this inspirational without God.
There would be no safe place, no strong tower for us to seek refuge. See> (Proverbs 18:1 10 The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe.. There would be nothing but the void of space, for everything is created by God. See> (John 1:3) 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. … I would have no protection from all the evil See> (2 Thessalonians 3:3) 3 But the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.




My Final Thoughts
With God.
I am inspired through his words to write inspiration’s.
With God, we will always have a safe place to seek refuge. Refer to> (Proverbs 18:1 With God, we have our universe, home to our earth which God created mankind and all life within and on the earth. See> (Colossians 1:16) 16 For by him all things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. Along with all life with all the planets and life within a galaxy that’s home to. … With God, I know I will be rescued from the evil in this world. See> (2 Timothy 4:18) 18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. To him be the glory forever and ever. Amen. … In conclusion I ‘d like to say that my life with God has brought me to a better place, and those who know me know I am not who I was before. They are proud I have made a new life with God, a lifestyle I will live through thick and thin. I will be successful because I am not alone. My Lord and my Savior Jesus Christ is for me, because I am a Christian soldier.

Let us pray together
Heavenly Father, how grateful we are for this new life you have given to us. With you we know we can make this world a better place for others, as we teach and share your good news to those who want to be ‘WITH YOU,’ in the name of Jesus Christ we pray. Amen.

James36 – Is Your Religion Connected to Jesus Christ?

26 If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless. 27 Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world. (James 1:26 – 27 NAS

In the previous lesson the question was raised about whether your religion was true or not. We considered the possibility that you were deceived into thinking it was but in reality it wasn’t.

The religion of the deceived person comes in many forms, but in all cases, James says, it “is worthless.” This religion may have much to offer a person and in many ways be very attractive, but it tends to center on the external and leaves the inner nature unchanged. It is an activity that may be very enjoyable, but it lacks the regenerating power of the gospel. Outward expressions are an important aspect of personal faith, but they are of little importance if they are not connected to an inner work of the Holy Spirit. A deceived person’s religion is worthless because it is an empty religion. It is a religion without a life and without a living relationship with God. True religion is a living religion in relationship with Jesus Christ. It is a life changing religion, transforming one into the image of Christ. How has your religion changed your life into becoming more like that of Christ?

Religion is important, but it is to be pure and undefiled and it must unite the effects of the gospel on the inner and outer aspects of the person. It is a religion that relates to the personal, growing relationship with God as well as helping those in need, and it does so by keeping an unstained relationship by the world.

If your religion is true then your life will produce an obedience to the word that is “pure and undefiled” before the Lord. To be pure is to be free of contaminates such as moral pollution. To be undefiled implies that you have not become soiled or stained by contact with moral evil. If your religion is to be acceptable to God it must be more than just ritual. It is to be what you do and think in a moral response to God. Anything short of that is considered worthless to God. Our God and Father is looking at our religion from a position of his nature and so the standards are high. He is the Lord God, the Almighty, but He is also our loving Father. He has an eternal, unconditional love for each of us and He wants our religion to be all that it can be to make us like he is and to stimulate a personal relationship with him, a relationship you have to experience in order to understand it.

True religion goes beyond our relationship with God. It also includes our relationship with others and our relationship with the world. Concerning our relationship to others, James lists two needs that were important at the time and still are today. The point James is making is that we should be concerned enough about social issues to be involved directly in some way. When James says we are “to visit” he doesn’t mean just pray about the social problem, he means to get involved is some direct and tangible way. Paul said, “Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind let each of you regard one another as more important than himself; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 2:3 – 5 NAS. Today this might result in our involvement with children or families of prisoners through Prison Fellowship. There are the homeless and children from broken families. There are single parents in need of help. There are so many that we could encourage by showing some interest in them with a loving helping hand.

In addition to being concerned and having contact with and helping those in need or distressed in some way, we are “to keep oneself unstained by the world.” James is saying that there is a philosophy and a morality in the world that can contaminate us. We must be careful that we don’t become positioned in such a way that we become infected. Health care workers are constantly among the sick but manage to stay healthy. Likewise, we can reach out to those, in the world, who are in need and not become infected if we apply proper protection and use caution.
