What beliefs really matter to me

February 10th, 2016

Often I am asked what I believe on a particular belief or doctrine. Sometimes people are studying that topic at the time or at other times they want to know where I stand on an issue.

The most important things for me as a Christian revolves around Christ – who He is, what He has done and what He is going to do in the future.

  1. Who He is – Jesus is the Son of God, He is my Saviour and my King. I want to know Him and make Him known. I want to walk in His ways and help others to do the same.
  2. What He has done – He came into the world to show us what God is like, how we should live our lives and He died on the cross to pay the price for our sin. We can find forgiveness and salvation through Him.
  3. What He is going to do – Jesus was risen and returned to heaven. He is coming back for His own people. He will one day call time on this world and we will spend eternity with Him.

To me all other teaching about heaven and hell, old earth or young earth, rapture or no rapture don’t worry rate as highly with me. They are important, but not as important to me.

For me it is about trusting Christ for my salvation, trying to walk in His ways, loving and serving those around me and helping others to follow Jesus too.

I trust that God has it all under control and He knows the when, where and how things are going to happen. I am just happy to know I will spend eternity with Him because I trust Christ for my salvation.

God Bless,
Dave

A brand new way of living

February 10th, 2016

“Either way, Christ’s love controls us. Since we believe that Christ died for all, we also believe that we have all died to our old life. He died for everyone so that those who receive his new life will no longer live for themselves. Instead, they will live for Christ, who died and was raised for them.” 2 Corinthians‬ ‭5:14-15‬

Christ died for us. He died in our place to pay the price for our sin. When we commit our lives to follow Him, we leave our old lives behind. Our goals, dreams and worldly desires are replaced by His goals for us. We live for Christ and His kingdom. The old life is gone and the new has come.

Prayer

Thank You Jesus that You came and died on the cross for my sin. I ask for Your forgiveness for the wrong things I have done. Please come into my life as Lord and Saviour. Help me to leave my old life behind and live for Your Kingdom. Amen.

Living out your sermons

February 9th, 2016

Here is a poem I read today on Mark Conner’s Blog. It talks about living out your sermons in a way people can see…

A Sermon

I’d rather see a sermon than hear one any day;

I’d rather one should walk with me than merely show the way.

The eye’s a better pupil, and more willing than the ear;

Fine counsel is confusing, but example is always clear.

So I’d rather get my lesson by observing what you do;

It is not enough to preach it, you must live the sermon, too.

For I may misunderstand you and the high advice you give,

But there’s no misunderstanding how you act and how you live.

God’s help carries on through us

February 7th, 2016

My reflections from my devotions today…

“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭1:3-4‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God comforts us in our times of suffering and distress. He is the source of all comfort. God comforts us to restore us, but He also comforts us so we can comfort others too. We pass on the help God has given us.

Prayer

Dear God, thank You for all of Your help and comfort over the years. I pray that I can comfort others too. Use me to bring Your peace and comfort to others when they are in need. Amen.
