  1. You still don't get what I am saying. You remind me of myself when I am a baby christian. Anyway, no point arguing as long as you are saved. God bless you
  2. Wow this is good. I agreed with you. But in between step 8 and 9, there are a few more steps which I am trying to bring across with this posting. Stage 8.......Jesus saves you and puts His Holy Spirit in you Stage 8.1....Thought that I need to follow the law to please God (Jesus done his part, I also must do my part by pleasing him) stage 8.2....The more I follow the law, the more I understood how hopeless I am and God is never please with him if he assess me based on my human works stage 8.3....Stop trying and understood that God see me as Jesus and nothing pleases God more than Jesus. God is already pleased with me the moment I accepted Jesus, Jesus has done it all. (1 John 4:17 This is how love is made complete among us so that we will have confidence on the day of judgment: In this world we are like Jesus.) Stage 9.......God uses a combination of Grace and Chastisement to mold you into the image of His Son Stage 10......You “ find yourself” living a life that pleases God, without having to work at it (This is the part where I sleep soundly while Jesus drive my car)
  3. There is a difference between "Let God" and "Let Go".
  4. Salvation is guaranteed the moment we accept Jesus. But christian maturity is a process.
  5. Hi Betha, Peace to you. Many christian have this wrong thinking that walking in obedience with the effort of the flesh (self-discipline, human endurance, self-determination and will power) equals to walking in the Spirit. Even non-christian who operates only in the flesh can do good works using their human efforts. And if human efforts can please God, we can saved ourselves and Jesus died in vain. If you have sin consciousness or law consciousness, you are still operating under the flesh and your own human effort. Not many christian understood this. The true walk in the Spirit is not being bounded by the law and sin, it is a easy walk by yielding to the desire of the Spirit. When you give yourself to the desires of the Spirit, you will be able to follow all of God's law effortlessly (without human efforts).
  6. I can identify with you because I used to think like you. You will understand when get into adulthood.
  7. It takes true humility to understand that even with our best foot forward, we are still unable to please God. God considers our righteousness as filthy rags.
  8. Infancy stage: Today I invited Jesus into my car. He is in the back seat observing me. I must do my best to obey all the traffic rules so that he will be please with me. I think God help those who help themselves. Jesus will surely bless those who pleases him. Toddler stage: No matter how much I tried, I am unable to maintain my patience for inconsiderate drivers on the road. There are rules that I know I should not break but sometimes I choose break those rules. I relocated Jesus onto the passenger seat next to me. Probably, I will be able to perform better with him as a partner rather than an observer. I think if I work together with God, nothing is impossible for me to achieve. I can do all things through Jesus who give me strength. Adult stage: It did not work out even with Jesus sitting next to me. He did gave me instructions and directions. When I lose my patience and got angry, I disregarded him and did want I wanted to do. Strangely, I did not remember once Jesus got angry with me for disregarding him. Just found out that he is not even accessing my performance. What he wanted all along is to relief all my burdens of being a chauffeur. I vacated my driver seat and Jesus took over. Right now, I am sleeping soundly while Jesus is driving. Christianity is not what we can do for Jesus but rather what Jesus has already done for us.
  9. Operating of the flesh does not only include bad and sinful deeds. Sometimes, we do things out of our flesh thinking we are helping God.
  10. Hope it will help your christian walk. It is totally dependence on Jesus
  11. Hope it will helps and encourage and build up the body of Christ
  12. Hi Unprofitable, First of all, I would like to apologize for the harsh rebuke on you. Today the Lord review a new revelation in regards with this matter. The parable of the sower (Matthew 13) The Lord has sowed seeds on every different ground (meaning Jesus finished work and gospel is for the entire world). The seeds sow are same type of seeds. But the conditions of the grounds are different. First type of ground Matthew 13:4 And when he sowed, some seeds fell by the way side, and the fowls came and devoured them up (Nothing wrong with the ground, but Satan blinded the believers partially. Some of the seeds which are not devoured by the birds, gets to grow into trees and bare fruits. But it is a partial harvest.) Second type of ground Matthew 13:5-6 Some fell upon stony places, where they had not much earth: and forthwith they sprung up, because they had no deepness of earth. And when the sun was up, they were scorched; and because they had no root, they withered away. Seeds fell onto bad ground and grow into plant but died. (A picture of church goers who go to church but did not believed in the work of Jesus.) 1 John 2:19 can best describe these type of people. 1 John 2:19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. Third type of ground Matthew 13: 7 And some fell among thorns; and the thorns sprung up, and choked them. (A picture of non-believers who heard the gospel but did not believed.) Fourth type of ground Matthew 13:8 But other fell into good ground, and brought forth fruit, some an hundredfold, some sixtyfold, some thirtyfold. (The good ground whereby it brought many folds increase in harvest. These type of people understood the heart of God, approached God the correct way and got the most blessings from God.) Every christian is appointed by God to spread the true gospel. But whether the hearer gets saved or not, it is not the responsibility of the christian who spread the gospel. 1 Corinthians 3:6-9 I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God has been making it grow. So neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. I am here to spread to truth of finished work of Jesus. Some people gets the full harvest and benefited from it, some gets partially harvest, some rejected it. But it is ok for me, I have done the job and I got nothing to lose whether the hearer accepts or rejects.
