hopefullylookingforward asked: what are your thoughts on evidence of faith as it applies to assurance of faith? Another way to ask the question what are your thoughts on the sermon titled "The Shocking Youth Message" by Paul Washer? (you can find it on Youtube.)
God saved you by His grace when you believed. Ephesians 2:8.
Everything that this man (Paul Washer) was saying in this video was the brutal truth.
It takes faith everyday to believe and walk with God. because there’s not just a Narrow Gate into Heaven, but a Narrow Way. (Matthew 7:13-14)
What he was basically saying throughout this video is that we have to work at our Salvation each day and never take it for granted because it;’s when we take things for granted that they can be lost. We need to be serious about Christ.
We need to self analyzing ourselves and ask ourselves if we really live what we believe and we need to realize and accept that we cannot bend our opinions to God’s word. After all, we do not know the mind of God. His ways are higher than our ways. And personally, I’d prefer to accept what it says in His word than to feel my own way through theology.
So yeah, that video was brutal truth. And it may be hard to take but it is what churches and people need to hear.
Be HIGHLY Blessed brody/dally!
Anonymous asked: Does god forgive all sin's even when you do it everyday
The bible states that we’re all sinners. romans 3.23
& God knew that people were going to fail him time and time again.
So out of such deep love, he had a perfect plan. He gave what was most dearest to him, his Son Jesus, to step down into this broken world of ours, to live a perfect life, to die as a perfect sacrifice.. to perfect some pretty imperfect people. And the bible says that in that moment , he did everything that he needed to be done for everyone.
Salvation is a genuine and free gift. A gift of love that bears scars.
Being christian doesn’t require perfection. It’s a relationship with Jesus.
He brings out the best in us. The bible tells us that he transforms us each and everyday. 2 corinthians 3.18.
Jesus tells us to repent everyday because we are human and will continue to fail.. but even when we fail, the cross prevails and brings the best out of us.
God knows your heart, friend. luke 16.15. And out of such deep love for each person, God will always forgive a true heart because God is love. 1 john 4.8. But he is also a God of justice. isaiah 30.18.
He says he hates those who take advantage of him (lukewarm people) and he will turn his back and ignore those who take advantage him. It’s like this, would you find it hard to forgive someone who kept asking for forgiveness and then kept failing you..?
The catch is, God forgives those who truly wish to change and allow him to transform their lives. To really live for him and follow him with their all. He loves those who keep their hands in his purity and walk the narrow path he has set for them. And it those people who are truly blessed.
Anybody can get there. It doesn’t matter what you’ve been through, or what you’ve done or said. Jesus has overcome it all john 3.16 All it just takes true, genuine repentance. And that’s gotta come from your heart.
Change is inevitable and with God, everything is possible! But you have to want to change and you have to make the change.
Look deep within and ask God to help you make the changes in your life. Dedicate your life to working for your salvation daily. And really mean what you say. God’s with you. And it’s never too late.
Jesus loves you ya awesome. possum power ranger! :D :O :D :O :) hahahaha
much love bruv.
Anonymous asked: Does Jesus still love me? :'( is there still any hope for me? Im not ready or his arrival and im scared :'( :'(
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart” - Jeremiah 1:5
Jesus loves!!!! And believe me when I say this: There is nothing you can possibly do or say that can make Him love you any less. God knew everything you were going to do and say up to this moment in your life when He was upon that cross. He also knows everything you’re going to do and say in your future.. but did that stop Him from dying for you? NO WAY, JOSE! :D
GOD LOVES YOU SOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!! And there is more then enough hope for you! Just follow God’s commandments wholeheartedly! :)
“On one occasion an expert in the law stood up to test Jesus. “Teacher,” he asked, “what must I do to inherit eternal life?” “What is written in the Law?” he replied. “How do you read it?” He answered: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’” You have answered correctly,” Jesus replied. “Do this and you will live.”
Anonymous asked: Hi, IfI am saved and baptised why dont I feel saved sometimes? like sometimes I dont entirely feel saved. and I am baptised and have said the sinners prayer:( this year has been rly hard please pray for me! Ive been so down and unmotivated!
Jesus said “Draw near to me and I will draw near to you.”
And I believe tonight that he’s going to meet you right where you’re at.
The truth is, life isn’t a free ride. We all go through seasons, we all face troubles and face heartache. But just as he holds the universe in his hands, he holds your heart too. and He knows you and He cares about you.
He knows your burdens. He knows your fears. He knows your troubles. He knows your dreams. He knows your desires… He knows you. and He loves you.
And I think about the fact that the reason we can have this moment, talking about this — is all because of a moment that took place two thousand odd years ago. when God, the God of the universe. Seeing us, knowing us, knowing that we would fail him time and time again. Knowing that we would make a mess of things, still loved us enough in advanced to give what was most dearest to him, his Son Jesus, to step down into this broken world of ours and to live a perfect life and to die as a perfect sacrifice to perfect some very imperfect people.
And the bible says that in that moment, he did everything that he needed to be done for everyone.
And I feel as if we think, maybe God feels distant or you don’t feel good enough for God, but I want you to hear this.
None of us are good enough. That’s why we all need Jesus. It’s because of what he did on that cross that we’ve been made righteous in God’s eyes.
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done. It doesn’t mater what you’ve been through. It doesn’t matter what’s happened to you. He loves you.
When He died upon that cross, it was as much for you as it was for anybody.
Open your heart to God and trust in Him. The bible tells us that God likes our honesty (Psalm 145:18). He loves when we’re truthful with them.
Be honest with him and tell him what burdens you, what makes you doubt. Tell him how you want to give yourself in more and have more faith in him. Ask him to work in your heart and help you in strengthening your relationship with him. Ask God to keep your heart in purity.
And take heart, because God is in control. And He’s going to work in your life beyond what you could ever think.
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart, for I have overcome the world.” - John 16:33
Bless yah kid.
Anonymous asked: How do you know for sure that you're saved? I've never felt like I know for sure. Lately I've felt like I am, but I still have doubts. Does this mean I'm not saved?
do you believe in Jesus christ? have done what is the declaration of faith which is called the prayer of faith?
if you have, then by all means you are saved!
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
Its a renewing of the spirit, “you are born again”. You now know the love of Jesus. That in His death, we gain life.
I exhort you to read the bible! not only will you know what your faith is about, but you will have confidence in the Holy spirit, and be fed spiritually.
God bless you!
Anonymous asked: Whats the happy medium between we are saved by grace and not by works and we are reborn in Christ to live a new life for Him..? So many times I hear "if you have not shared your faith with nonbelievers in the past few weeks, I would doubt your faith" but what about those who have accepted Christ and dont become a new person. This is probably a confusing question but please answer what you think. Thank you.
Jesus gave us Grace, limitless mercy to forgive our sins.
with that said, in john 15 Jesus talks about the branches and how they bear fruit.
and then it says a key point
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. ”
people may talk people may try to make you stumble, but you keep going, Talk to the Holy spirit, reach towards Jesus, and watch how He will be the one to give you fruit, He will be the one to give you the testimony to save millions! in Jesus name!
The only act is the act of faith, and everything else is an act of love towards what he asks from us!
Ask Jesus to ignite the fire in you to reach out to the world and bring people to Him, so the lost will be found!
Hope this answers it in Jesus name!
dude!(dudette) Stay righteous!
