Its time the real Christian rise up and be heard. Its time the real Christian be about the Fatherís business. Godís business is Soul Winning. We trust we have a good conscience in all things willing to live honestly and that Christ be restored to us again.
A Christian is one that confesses Christ. We are his sanctuary that he has sanctified to himself with his own blood. We are to offer the sacrifice of praise to God continually that is the fruit of our lips giving thanks to his name. We are to give him alms, do good and remember to communicate for God and He is pleased with the sacrifice we make to and for him. God wants to make us perfect in every good work to do his will, working that in us which is well pleasing in his sight through Jesus Christ.
The Christian testing is to be received with joy. Itís use by God is to build character in the Christian and cause them to walk in Holiness. In endurance implies a God given wisdom of Spirit. Godís gift of wisdom is conditioned upon true faith. Lack of such faith reveals a dual quality of life. The Christian must deal with the fleshly and spiritual reality of self. The key importance is the Christian attitude on a personal level under a test. There are helpful and harmful testing, some which because of the temptation destroys the Christian belief and faith in God. Because there are true and false confidence the believer chief good is conducted by God Himself.
God is the originator of all things known and unknown to man. We have to trust God for everything; including the redemptive work through His Son and how his love is evidenced by that work. Heart probity results in practical righteousness and is enjoined to God the only true righteous one. It is His righteousness the Christian walks in. Our faith prevails through our dd for God. His love is the reason we seek to live such a life that pleases God. We get rid of our own selfish factors, a self-willed life, and self-righteousness when we come to know God. We uphold our stewardship, accountability and reliability as we acquire a deeper love for God. When our patience is tested we donít get oppressed but endure it as a good soldier of the Lord Jesus Christ. There is no restraint in our commitment; no false confidence and our spiritual being surrenders to the Spirit of God that we may prevail in our walk of holiness, faith, and prayer.
What is a Christian? Christians are followers of the Lord Jesus Christ. If anyone suffers as a Christian let him not feel ashamed but in that name let him glorify God. Count it all joy when we fall into manifold temptations. The Disciples were called Christians first at Antioch. Salvation is brought to man by Christ. He is the head of the body of believers and is the beginning, the first born from the dead that in all things he might have the preeminence, being distinguished and outstanding with all fullness of hope for manís salvation dwelling inside which pleased the Father. Christ through the blood shed at the Cross reconciled all things unto himself whether they are things in the earth or in heaven. Salvation for the Christian came because Christ broke through the alienation and enemy in our minds for us to be reconciled with God. In the body of his flesh through death; He presented us holy, with no blame and reproved in Godís sight. He made God see we were not hopeless after all. He laid hope up in heaven for us. He gave the Christian the grace of God in Truth. He declared his love to us in the Spirit that we be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding.
Being a Christian means we walk worthy of the Lord that we may please God. It means we are fruitful in every good work and increase in the knowledge of God, we are strengthened with a hope the unbeliever donít possess and a might according to his glorious power with patience and longsuffering with joyfulness. Jesus has the Christian to be a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in light and delivered us from the power of darkness. Because Jesus finished his work of Salvation on the Cross God has given him the kingdom he translated us into.
A Christian is one that has redemption through the blood of Jesus and the forgiveness of sin. The Christian follow in the footsteps of Christ that they too may do greater works than Jesus did. We are the ones that is to continue in the faith grounded and settled and not moved away from the hope of the gospel which we have heard. We have been made to fulfill the Word of God by the treasure of wisdom and knowledge given us by Christ that we should not be beguiled by enticing words of the enemy of our soul. We are to love, respect and honor Christ in Spirit, joy, and behold his order, and be steadfast in our faith. We are to be faithful. The Christian that loses their life now for Christ and the Gospel sake shall save it.
Christians trust God. What do we mean when we say trusting God? When we trust we have confidence, dependence, reliance and faith. We are assured of Godís love for us, not fearful but bold in our stand for Christ. We go about our lives sure that God is there to help us and we can rely on him. We can trust that God is with us as we walk this life. We have hope, faith and trust because of the reputation of God with our fathers of old and Jesus unimpeachable in all his works in the earth. What Jesus did is so irrefutable and incontestable that we have been given a holding faith that we can trust God in all things. We are to hold that same credence that we have been given to walk in. The Christian must accept their conviction with sureness in their belief. There is a creed and doctrine we have been called to trust in. We are to carry the gospel in our living, speech, and acts. We must show forth the revelation of who Christ is in our lives. This shows our total trust in God that keeps us walking in the light.
God will work out thins for us. The Christian must believe that God will work out things for us. As we increase in faith we began to believe without seeing; true faith doesnít have to see a manifestation to believe. When the enemy comes in like a flood we know we will walk through whatever they bring. We have forgiveness of sin so we become his witnesses. When we take care of Godís business he will take care of our business. Acts 16:31 believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shall be saved, and thy house. We have an inheritance among them which are sanctified by the faith that is in Christ. We have the righteousness of God by faith in Jesus Christ. We are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus for all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.
If we confess with our mouth the Lord Jesus and shall believe in our heart that God has raised him from the dead we shall be saved and God knows how to take care of his own children. We have boldness and access with confidence by the faith of him. Our soul is anchored in the hope that God will work out things for us. The Christian has an awesome work to do on their relationship with God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. We need a solid foundation of love, peace, joy, and righteousness to get that heavenly reward of promise; heaven on earth while we yet live in the flesh. It was never from the beginning of Creation that man should suffer and be without God at any time. The relationship God had with man was perfect. We as Christians must learn sound obedience that as we walk this way we learn how to possess our soul in honor before God.
We are on a journey from earth to glory and the transition must be made in righteousness, holiness, cleanness and sanctification. We must never deny God in any area of life; this is blasphemy. We must hold on to true facts about our lives with any deviation whatsoever. If we say we have no sin, we lie. If we say we arenít what God made us to be, we are a lie. If we say God made a mistake in his doings, we deny him as our Master and Savior. Be careful Christian to be real. A real Christian first order of business is to recognize that we are Godís and if we donít come to him truthfully we deny Him. Real Christians need to take a stand on every issue that pertains to God and Man.
Fellow Christians we have a call. It's not about us but how we testify of God's greatness and love. We are to bring glory to Him. I sacrifice time to hear what God is saying throughout the night but it's not in vain. I have written 24 books, published 6 of them, paid for copies and used them in my soul winning efforts with results that pleases God. I just want God to be pleased with my life and use me for His glory. The messages go around the world through me sharing messages with others. That's what loving God to me is all about. It's all about Him; not Me. I must die that Christ come alive.
