God has no patience with once a week, ritualistic, traditional Christianity. God love you and wants a relationship with you every day. 😄❤
When people lie, do not listen or accept the lie. Love the person but reject the lie. Do not allow the lie in as truth or half truth. Do not let someone’s fight for justification be supported by you ornyou aid themnin the lie and thus sin. They want to justify or validate their lie to feel more right inside because God made us all really want to be right with Him. They want to run from Him pridefully so these people cover up that linging to be right with God with lies that it is not so bad and is ok, that God will magically forgive without repentence, that there is no God (which everyone knows is foolish), or that it is ok because this other person is worse. This is why the enemy is the father of lies. Truth always leads back to Jesus Christ. Truth always frees and saves and fills the one who rejects lies with peace and joy and that right relationship with God we all crave. So live the person but reject the lie and so doing maintain your own right relationship with God. That requires actice and fervent protection. ❤
The closer I am in relationship with God, the less I am affected by bad things happening. I am not saying that fewer bad things happen… that would be ridiculous to say. In fact, the enemy comes against Christians far more and with a vengeance. What I am saying is that it affects me less when I am closer to God, reading His Truth in the Bible as much as possible, praying, worshipping, just being with consciously. God gives peace and joy and the more time spent with Him and His goodness, the more the fruits of the Spirit (love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness and self-control) take prominence in my character. This provides security and hope and beautiful assurance that no one can separate me from the love of God ever. Fasting makes this more clear but so does time and spiritual maturity doing the right thing in keeping in the Bible and prayer and fellowship with Christians.❤
There is no mystery, a relationship with God is simple, as you would work on any relationship. To foster it you need to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior and obey Him. Then you just spend time with Him in prayer and Bible reading. And since we have an innate place in our souls He placed in us when He lovingly created us, it is the most natural and fulfilling relationship of our lives. We can trust Him, unlike other relationships, and He never changes, as perfection does not need to be improved upon. As our relationship with God grows, we naturally want to and start to be more like His character, see things differently, want to share with others, want to serve, want to worship, enjoying prayers, enjoy Bible reading, and we start emulating the Fruit of the Holy Spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control. It is beautiful. God is beautiful! Nothing is moreso.❤❤❤
The Truth (the Bible) is the most important thing we have access to, but God, the Person of Truth is the most important Person we have access to. And hands down, a strong relationship with God will give you peace and joy now and during any storm that comes your way and that same relationship will lead you safely into eternity with Him as well. God is loving and good!❤
Either you have or want a relationship with Yahweh/God or don’t. This is black and white. Gray is not an option. It really is the best decision in the world to make that contrite decision to have that stabilizing, loving relationship with our loving Creator, the Almighty God of the universe. And no matter what you believe, that is the truth. And choosing to believe it or not almost comical, like deciding that the color white is indeed white versus deciding to proudly say that white is orange and screaming that haughtily at the sky as if that makes it so. Why thr Bible rightly proclaims, “A fool says in his heart that there is no God.” It is a fact that not only does God exist but that He loves us and wants to have a relationship with every precious person He lovingly made on purpose. And Jesus is our way. It is black and white.
Gray is a hypothetical construct to make people feel better without the discomfort of committing to something that makes you feel guilty about still sinning doing things you want to do that are not really eternally good for you. Gray sucks. And God says He hates gray, it will be spewed out of His mouth, He says.
Love Him or don’t and be very careful about don’t. That decision has eternal consequences. And it is such an incredible joy and peace to be close to Yahweh/God! God is worthy of our effort and praise and certainly our trust. He is worthy of all praise!❤
God the Father wants so much to have a personal relationship with every person He lovingly made. This can only happen through the death and resurrection of Jesus, the only bridge between sin life and Holy God. This is why Jesus said He is the only way to the Father. Accept the Son and draw close to the Father. And the Holy Spirit helps us every step of the way and cumulatively, Yahweh is with us in love. This is eternal and incredibly beautiful.😄❤
