Christianity in a Word

Have you ever thought about what you would call Christianity if you only had one word to do it?

Check out this cool video that does just that and then some.

This site is promoting the Bible and the need for an online bible study. Think this may be worth checking out

Think they nail it on the word…this is Christianity in a word. Let me know what you think.

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble.” James 4:6

Have you ever had one of those days?  I got up early, went to a men’s prayer meeting and was enjoying a great time visiting and then looked down. 

Looking Down at Shoes

The start of a new day

If you notice from the above picture, these shoes had shoe strings, which means someone had to tie them.   Wow, when I looked down during the meeting a rush of emotions came over me.  The first was embarrassment, next came shame, then I became self-centered.  This all happened in a blink of an eye and I remember my mind drifting to what the other men were thinking or what they would think, when they all discovered what an idiot looked like.

The Holy Spirit stepped back into the mix and reminded me this meeting wasn’t about me, the men were here to worship and praise Jesus.  What a revelation, while my whole mental world was starting to spin out of control, the simple mention of Jesus’ name brought everything back into perspective.

There are many lessons I learned this morning…but number one; It is all about Jesus!  Take your eyes off of yourself today and look to Jesus.  He really can bring peace to your storms. 

How many times a day do you think it is all about you?  When that thought hits me today I will remember the lesson I learned a long time ago and was reminded of this morning in living color…Jesus took care of all of this over 2000 years ago.  Thank you again Jesus, for all You have done for us.

The lessons I learned this morning will be shared with you in the next few posts.  May God help you to keep your eyes on my Lord and Savior, Jesus. By the way, no one in the meeting even noticed my shoes. 

Until next time, remember: You overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, and by becoming a living sacrifice. Revelation 12:11

Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Ephesians 6:11

Ok, I know I am not suppose to talk about religion or politics…I can’t help it.  Satan is such a lying pig, I can not help but expose his work everywhere I see it. Notice the above verse does not say the mighty power of the devil. 

Global Warming…I mean Climate Change is a lie straight out of the pit of Hell.  The arrogance of man to think we can change the weather if we do what “they” say.  You know I would respect the theory more if there was not a “tax”, read Carbon Credits, associated with it.

So here we are, look at the absurdity of what is going on, record cold temperatures and snow fall in many areas of the world, still the planet is heating up?  This reminds me of another lie Satan used on me, it was called “Happy Hour”, this is where you go and dump depressants down your thoat for a reduced price…crazy.

Satan’s only power over us is the power we give him if you buy into the lie, he’s got you.  Look at the hysteria behind Global Warming, reminds me of religion; religion says, forget what the Bible says, this is what God meant to say. 

Satan got Eve with it, “You will not suely die.” (Genesis 3:4) He takes God’s words and twists them.  Conservation or taking care of the Earth is not wrong.  

I am not a “conservationist”, meaning the media would not interview me as an expert.  However, I do believe we are called to be good stewards of all God has given us.  We will give an account of everything God has given us, this includes the Earth and everything in it. (2 Corinthians 5:10)

Global warming, climate change, world peace it’s all a bunch of nonsense.  You can control you, that includes; what you see, where you look, what you eat, what you touch, and what you smell.  In other words, you control your five senses.

It is amazing what people will believe.  Jesus had it right when He called us sheep without a shepherd. (Matthew 9:36) Sheep will follow someones voice, we need to make sure it is the voice of God.

Until next time, remember: You overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, and by becoming a living sacrifice. Revelation 12:11

Again, since our company is here in Louisiana I think this is relevant.  Besides God is clear when He says, “You shall have no other gods before Me.” (Exodus 20:3)

I have placed God first in my life, this allows me to have other interests that do not consume me.  I did enjoy the game tonight with friends and family.  I am confident Jesus was happy to see me enjoy myself. I believe more of the body of Christ should try it.

Until next time, remember: You overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of your testimony, and by becoming a living sacrifice. Revelation 12:11
