Introductions are often the first impression.
Get to know someone, then decide.
Crazy Love by Francis Chan week four warned us about being lukewarm Christians.
I admit I could be viewed as one of these lukewarm christians. I'm living in the world and I have a habit of cursing, and I admit to being a social drinker. The image I project makes me seem much like a lukewarm Christian.
Jesus asked a lot of people to drop everything and follow him. He asks the same of all christians.
There are times in my life when I know that God sent someone to speak to me about my life. At times even when we hear a sermon that speaks directly about our lives, we can become defensive. We find ways to justify our actions. God will use only what is good to him. I think sometimes this is why I dont recieve God's favor.
I write this blog, exposing I am human. I believe in God. I believe in Jesus. I hope to grow in my relationship as a Christian.
Hebrews 10: 22-25
22Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water.
23Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;)
24And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works:
25Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
I hope if you are reading this, I encourage your walk with God, instead of hindering it.
Love and mercy to you, in the name of Jesus our Lord.
