#DISCIPLETALK

For those who I have interacted with in the past that said, “There’s no hope for me, I committed blasphemy.” Paul’s testimony includes blasphemy but he obtained mercy……my GOD is gracious. And HE won’t turn from those who truly repent. #DISCIPLETALK #SEEKGOD #GODisLOVE

Friendship with God

Shall I hide from Abraham what I am doing … ? —Genesis 18:17

The Delights of His Friendship. Genesis 18 brings out the delight of true friendship with God, as compared with simply feeling His presence occasionally in prayer. This friendship means being so intimately in touch with God that you never even need to ask Him to show you His will. It is evidence of a level of intimacy which confirms that you are nearing the final stage of your discipline in the life of faith. When you have a right-standing relationship with God, you have a life of freedom, liberty, and delight; you are God’s will. And all of your commonsense decisions are actually His will for you, unless you sense a feeling of restraint brought on by a check in your spirit. You are free to make decisions in the light of a perfect and delightful friendship with God, knowing that if your decisions are wrong He will lovingly produce that sense of restraint. Once he does, you must stop immediately.

The Difficulties of His Friendship. Why did Abraham stop praying when he did? He stopped because he still was lacking the level of intimacy in his relationship with God, which would enable him boldly to continue on with the Lord in prayer until his desire was granted. Whenever we stop short of our true desire in prayer and say, “Well, I don’t know, maybe this is not God’s will,” then we still have another level to go. It shows that we are not as intimately acquainted with God as Jesus was, and as Jesus would have us to be— “… that they may be one just as We are one …” (John 17:22). Think of the last thing you prayed about-were you devoted to your desire or to God? Was your determination to get some gift of the Spirit for yourself or to get to God? “For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him” (Matthew 6:8). The reason for asking is so you may get to know God better. “Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart” (Psalm 37:4). We should keep praying to get a perfect understanding of God Himself.

WHO CAN SAVE??

CHRIST is the only ONE Who can change you. No church, no pastor, no video, no song is the source of Salvation. Although, GOD can use people to encourage / help you, in the end CHRIST is The only source of Salvation. HE is the only One able to save you and set you free.

BOTTOM LINE.

Stop depending on the altar call every week to save you, stop depending on your pastor to call you every other day to pray with you to help you.

HERE’S THE REAL QUESTION: DO YOU TRULY KNOW CHRIST???

Been on this path for 14 years. Serving CHRIST is not for the weak or faint at heart. I’ve seen ‘em come and go. I’m still grinding. The walk doesn’t get easier, you just learn how to handle things better. #DISCIPLETALK
