I believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ is a simple message of hope. I also believe that the Christian walk of discipleship is also a simple walk of trust. I also know the things of God that have been revealed to us are often simple, confounding the wise. I also know that the burden of Christ is light, and his yoke is easy.
As I have grown in the faith I have come to realize that we often make the gospel, discipleship and the revelations of the Holy Spirit more complicated and over burdensome. The things of God are easy on the soul in their virgin form. Religiosity has the bad habit of making the truths of scripture a rod for our backs.
All this is by way of introduction to this blog, where with the Holy Spirits assistance I have grouped victorious Biblical principles into three easy points.
1/ ‘For no matter how many promises God has made, they are yes in Christ…’ 2 Corinthians 1:20 N.I.V. No exceptions. Every promise that you can find in the Bible belongs to us, who are in Christ and Christ is in us. Every great and exceeding promise belongs to us.
2/ ‘….I tell you, now is the time of Gods favour, now is the day of salvation.’ 2 Corinthian 6:2 N.I.V. All of God promises are for the ‘right now’ moment. Gods promises are not for tomorrow, next week or when circumstances change but they are ‘right now.’ This very moment! Claim Gods promises right now. Believe it; Declare it!
3/ ‘…but in every situation, by prayer and petition with thanksgiving…’ Philippians 4:6 N.I.V. One cannot overdo giving thanks to God our Father for his blessings, mercy and love that he has poured out on us. Do not cease to give thanks. Continually give thanks in all things.
I sincerely believe that the above three points will go a long way for all of us, who belong to Christ, to live a prosperous life in all its fulness, undergirded by the peace of Christ.
Every once in awhile I print a blog because I want to remember it. This is one such blog.
I came to Christ as a child and therefore learned to easily accepted His Word. That's what children do. They are very accepting of what they are told by someone “bigger” than them and of course children instinctively know God is the biggest and wisest of all. It is funny how they know that but they do.
It is when we get older that we complicate things.
I have been thinking along these lines for a post and here you are with them.
Because my calling leads me into hard to know and strange places in scripture and spiritual matters I have to rely on the very basics of His promises with prayer, a lot of prayer. Must live everyday knowing you are in Him and He is in you - and the time is now.
Very good brother, very important, most important the foundation of our faith.
