When I gather with my brother's and sister's underneath the roof top of God's House, I am so very blessed. There are some Sunday's when I cannot go at all and it is so very disappointing to me, because in church is where I find the strength to go on into a brand new week.
Most days I get out of bed by holding on to something, then I walk through the house in a limp, because of hip pain and arthritis...but When God enters, all my pain is gone and I feel like a bird who has been let out of a cage, and I am set free and some day when I leave this mortal body and put on my immortal body, I will never suffer another pain!!
When I finally get to go to church, I feel like I am the least of the least! I am nothing special! I am so honored just to be a Child of The King! When the Spirit of the Living God gets on me and I shout through the church house like a teenager, then I know that God is there...Praise The Lord!!
Being a Christian is a learning field. One never stops learning, no never! Just because one gets born again does not make him perfect, but it makes him or her perfect enough for the Holy Ghost to work inside you and tell you, "Hey that is wrong"! The Holy Ghost makes one know good from evil, because The Holy Ghost is all truth and carries the Truth about things concerning the Spirit of The Living God..
I am not saying I am perfect, but if God tells me something and I keep it a secret, then I am not worth nothing to God!
I am over sixty six years old and I still learn at the feet of Jesus, just like the other Mary did and I am striving to attain eternal life. I do not want to make enemies, I want to make friends. But if you become my enemy because I tell you the truth about Christ then so be it!! I am not trying to win a popularity contest, but the Christ who lives in me must shout, "The end is coming, it is even at the door"! Are we ready to spend eternity in Heaven or eternity in hell....??"
For we must all stand at the judgment seat of Christ to be judged for what we have done here in this mortal body and the secrets of sin will be brought to the light. And if you have lived in the Light of Christ, then you will hear these words, "Enter into the Joys of the Lord My Good and Faithful servant!!"
The Holy Ghost who lives in me seeks to attain righteousness in me and sometimes I fall short just like everyone else does, for I am just a sinner saved by the Grace of God and that Grace is JESUS...
If we say we have no sin, then we are liars, but this scripture does not give us the green light to sin... For the scripture says in Romans 3: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of
The real child of God does not say, "I will sin now and get forgiveness later,"! You will be cut off from God through eternity if you keep on doing this for God does not work this way!
Even the righteousness of God which is by faith of Jesus Christ unto all and upon all them that believe: for there is no difference: For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.
Like I said, I am not perfection and I learn everyday and sometimes I bask in His presence as I sat at the feet of my granddaughter, Tinisha who teaches me new and exciting things about Christ! I taught her and now she is teaching me..
If you have anything to say for Christ, then speak up, for He is waiting for you! He wants to be your hands, your feet, your mouth, your thoughts, for how else can He spread the Good News, except through His Children...????
