Is your “faith” actually “junk”? Does God think your thinking is worthless? It’s worth thinking about.
Struggling with cancer, Mr. Country Music – Toby Keith, said his faith sustained him. Who will you turn to? Jesus is my faith. How about you?
A natural tendency is to wax and wane. Over time we can begin to be insensitive to others, and rationalize away our failures. We may be averse to honest self evaluation. We may redefine our “sin” and behavior – and negate the fact that we have actually changed.
Did you know that God limited His grace towards us, His fallen creation? Salvation, in that sense, is not free. It will cost you – all of you. The salvation of Jesus is both inclusive and exclusive. Find out how that works.
Our “old self” is being continually corrupted “through deceitful desires”. So where do you find healing for your soul? What do you want to have accomplished with your soul – by the time you reach your final destination?
Scripture reveals that there are many fakers of faith in Christ. “They were not really of us”, John says. We must discern who these fakers are. “Don’t judge the book by the cover.” See them for what they really are: wolves in sheep’s clothing (Matthew 7:15).
Verses in the Bible collected by Zofi to encourage and strengthen.
I was legally damned by God, but now I am legally forgiven. He will never leave me nor forsake me – because I have been born again – redeemed. And now, God continually refreshes and restores my soul. He comforts me.
I’m not particularly fond of waiting. I want perfect Heaven now! But the reality is that I am not complete. I have to wait for it.
PIC: Chicago1Ray.twitter Are you living as if your mindset is protected by God? Convinced of it? Is your thinking following God’s Think? Think again – might save you an eternity of regret.

What decides and settles your MOST URGENT question? I think Jesus answered life’s most urgent question in John 3.
It’s easy to miss some realities around us as we plow along, full-speed ahead. It’s good to pause and see what escaped our attention.
God wants us all to be saved. But He is Holy. So He is extreme to the nth degree. We must be so in our faith. The Christian faith is extreme to the inth!
To be faithful to Christ, we cannot mix Jesus plus something. It’s like mixing water with oil. That’s a messy mix. There is contradiction and opposition between the two.The same goes for anything in life: To stay true and faithful to Jesus we absolutely must deny that which denies Christ.
If you wanna get to Heaven – got to walk with Jesus. Who you walking with?
We are believing the big lie of Satan the Deceiver if we reject Jesus. We have nothing in the end if we don’t leave Earth with Jesus. Want more than what you’ve got?
Paul warned the Early Church, and us, of course: Do not tempt the Lord. What does that mean?
Sinning is easy. Repenting? Not so much. But God “will not be willing to forgive him” after earth time is done. Are you turning away from God? Or, have you been born again?
I live to be faithful and true daily, so I am ready when Jesus returns. How about you? Are you faithful and true to Jesus?
What is the difference – “denying Christ” versus “being faithless”?
Is your brain noggin talkin’ biblically? God does not overlook and excuse our sins. Never has. Never will. He forgives – or – he condemns. However, Jesus dealt with the sins of others in a much more merciful manner than we tend to do with our self and our sins – and the sins of others. When it comes to “sin”: Is your brain noggin talkin’ biblically, or …how?
It doesn’t matter who you think you are, God is not impressed. He will judge all of us on an equal basis. And when God calls a sin, “sin”, it is. How can a deep heart and intelligent mind become so painfully befuddled, to the point that one comes to actually believe that Jesus is okay with sin? So what in the world are people thinking: Calling themselves “Christians” but contradicting Jesus?
Have you placed your faith in Jesus Christ? Have you asked Him to forgive you and accept you into His Kingdom? Does it matter – what you believe?
I fear no evil because “Even though I walk through the [sunless] valley of the shadow of death [a valley of deep darkness]… You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort and console me. – Psalm 23:4

The other day a man walked through the door of a bar in the countryside. I could see where his heart was, deep inside him, because a well-beaten path led back to his own door. His heart was bare open, plain to see. Our hearts are laid bare open by …the evidences smeared all over the course of our life.
Jesus warned us not to be dishonest with Him. You can NOT fake it with God. He knows your heart. You must be genuinely born again.
There comes a time to stand for Jesus, or deny Jesus. Are you sold-out to Jesus? Jesus made so very clear which sides of issues are His Ways. To not follow His Ways, is equal to not following Him. Ready to meet your Maker, Jesus the Messiah?
I’ve got that joy. Do “you greatly rejoice”, and “delight with inexpressible and glorious joy”? You can. But “you must be born again” (Jesus said).
