Gave this sermon this past Sunday!
Very nice indeed
Welcome to the Berean Nation, everyone! Let’s seek the Lord together!
I was also told because I don’t speak on tongues I was not “baptized” i n the Holy Ghost. I studied and read and asked and listened to people I respected. I know that when I invited Jesus into my heart God and the Holy Spirit came with him They can do what they want God showed me what He wanted me to know. I have a gift and tongues ain’t it.
Praying for you my friend.
I should note that SOME of this, God has already told me is my “thorn in the flesh” like Paul had. I don’t think the foggy head is a part of that, though, and neither are the anxiety issues. These things are NOT normal for me.
Lord only You know why these things have invaded Gerrys life
We know rhru your word that your plans for Gerry are to give him hope and a future to praise and glorify you. We ask that You touch this man with Your love and lead him to greater things for Your kingdom. In Jesus name we pray. amen
I am so glad you wrote this–I can’t judge intent or anyone’s soul. No-one is perfect. Yet these two teachers are in fact false teachers in my view. This extends to some preachers that are “faith healers”. God does occasionally heal through miracles. Example: In a book by Christian author and head of Joni and Friends, Joni Eareckson Tada exposed the false teaching by Katherine Kuhlman, including faked healing on her TV broadcasts. There are so many others that posture as evangelical Christianity but are false teachers and give Christianity a bad name. They also disillusion Christians who trust them. When you post the truth regarding some of these false teachers you run the risk of offending their followers. Yet we cannot avoid doing because of the harm they do to fellow believers and to others.
Thank you Gerri!
Anyone have any other thoughts about the meaning of Sacrifice in our Christian lives?
New note up on the site!
Wow, thanks guys! I have struggled with this. I never know if I’m good enough or have done enough! Does it get easier with time?
Billy, I have found that it has for me. The important thing is to cultivate a devotional relationship with the Lord. I think we do that like the very first bunch of Christians did in Acts 2:42. It says, “They continually devoted themselves to the Apostles’ teaching, to fellowship, to the breaking of bread (which is a specific kind of Worship, but I would extend this to worship in General), and to prayer.” As we do that, God begins to teach us to hear Him. And when we hear what He says to us, we can heed (or obey) Him. Like we say on the site banner, it’s easy: Read, Hear, Heed. In that order. Give us a shout if you have other questions.
