No God – No Fruit; Know God – Know Fruit

Lynn Dove's Journey Thoughts

fruits-of-the-spirit-LOVE“Christians are no different than anyone else in this world!” she said and I felt the sting of her words like a slap to my face.

Unfortunately in her experience she had encountered more than her fair share of those “Christians” who talked a good talk, but never walked the good walk.  People who claimed to be Christian but their behaviour was no different than any other person and in some cases even worse than a non-believer in a similar circumstance.  People who claimed their “Christianity” based on their attendance at church, the fact they were baptized, and tried to involve themselves in church activity as much as possible thinking that “doing” good would earn them a place in heaven.

It was hard to argue with her.

A former Pastor of ours had a saying and I think it’s a good one.  “Hurt people, hurt people.”

This is true in life…

Impressing Man Over God

Call 2 Witness

So you must be careful to do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach. They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.“Everything they do is done for people to see: They make their phylacteries wide and the tassels on their garments long; they love the place of honor at banquets and the most important seats in the synagogues; they love to be greeted with respect in the marketplaces and to be called ‘Rabbi’ by others.  “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have one Teacher, and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in…

The Word

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of 20170624_162832bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD: And they shall wander from sea to sea, and from the north even to the east, they shall run to and fro to seek the word of the LORD, and shall not find it. –Amos 8:11-12

For every house is builded by some man; but He that build all things is God. -Hebrews 3:4

Do not work for money 

daily meditation

You don’t really understand the message of the kingdom if you don’t understand how to think about mammon.

Jesus said do not work for resources that perishes by for eternal rewards.

His words: “Do not labor for the food that perishes, but for the food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give to you. For on him God the Father has set his seal.”

If you are a zealous foot soldier of Mammon, please you can stop reading at this point. Thank you.

Alright, for others, let’s go on. You need to look at those words of Jesus very well and make a personal decision about it: was he joking or was he serious?

I personally subscribe to the latter. So let’s ask another question, why do most people work? They will say for money. And when they get the pay, it is for things…

ACCEPTING THAT SOMETHING YOU’VE SINCERELY BELIEVED IS WRONG…

BE BLESSTIFIED!

20161221_185306.jpg “REMOVE THE FICTION FROM YOUR FAITH” maj

As we mature in our relationship with God…

As we receive fresh revelation…

As we supplement our bible study with word study, hermeneutics (interpretation), culture, history, and anthropology…

We will be confronted with information that will challenge our personal/preferred theology, traditions and things we always accepted as true.

If we aren’t careful, we can allow fiction into our faith. We can find ourselves sincerely believing things that aren’t true. Unfortunately, Christianity is fragmented into numerous denominations and groups…and none of US have everything 100% true. That’s we must always be students of the word and have open hearts and minds to growth.

Accepting something false as true is a problem for all Christians, but this can present a challenge to sincere Christians, but especially to Pastors, Ministers, Teachers or Evangelists who must sometimes admit to themselves that even though they are God-called, sincere…

Who Is A Writer?

Giggles & Tales

A writer is simply someone who writes.

People write for different reasons and on different platforms and your reason for writing and your platform will to some extent, determine your writing style.

For example, if you are a columnist for a business newspaper or you write the business column for a magazine, your style of writing will be pretty formal and your terminologies will be business-oriented.
