Who Am I

I realize I've writen about this before but it has been on my heart a lot lately. Who am I?

Who we are is no defined by what we do. We do what we do because of who we are. Who are we? if you are a believer you are a saint, a child of God! This teaching that says "I am just a sinner saved by grace," is bunk! you are who you perceive yourself as. you act the part you identify yourself as. if you indentify yourself as a sinner then you will sin and sin some more. however if you identify yourself as a saint as scripture says you are you will sin less. I am not saying you won't sin but because where you place your identy that is what you will act like.

I have asked well meaning elder believers why we say "sinner saved by grace" and they say it is so we ca identify with others and they with us. well in my book you are who you claim and if you claim yourself as a saint and act accordingly then others will want to identify with you and be like you. if you say you are just a sinner saved by grace then you will act as such and thereby not giving a nonbeliever something they can aspire to be like. why would someone want to be like you if you identify yourself as being like them? they don't see a difference so therefore choose to remain.

hroughout the who new testament christians are referred to as saints. and 2 Corinthians 5 tells us "if any man be in Christ he is a new creature, old things have past away all is new." if all is new thena transformation has taken place so I am no longer what I was but am new. if new then must be a saint and no longer sinner. yes i sin but I am a new creation and am in Christ. so it is my endeavor to be like him.

in saying we are saints and perceiving that we are and believing it we will endeavor to act like what we perceive a saint to be. so as a result we will probably sin less and endeavor to model Christ. You are how you perceive yourself to be and will act accordingly. so let's stop trying ti identify with the world so we can draw them let's identify with Christ and model Him thereby drawing others out of curiousity to the change and thereby winning others for His kingdom.

If God is For us

If God is for us! Who can be against us? I ask with respect but desire to know honest answers. God is for us for sure in all we do. He wants us to devote ourselves to Him and serve with pure hearts and be ready to go when he says go. When he says go! why do many believers just sit and say "ummm ummm I don't know" there are tim es when God's direction is so clear cut and dry you'd have to be blinder then me to not see it. but many iof us don't go.

I think the reason is simple. We are afraid of what brother or sister so and so might think if we step out in faith and answer the call of God. Well muy answer to that is: "Stop!!! you don't have to answer to them!" The Lord Jesus Christ has called you so go and do. Don't worry anything about it. just look for ways to get it done and if needs be look for the help. If it it is truly from the Lord he will provide a way even when it seems there is really no way.

UIf God is for us no one can be against us. He'll make the way smooth and prosperous and will cause the doubters to stop doubting and take notice. So step out in faith I know it is a hard thing but after you take that first step each step begins to get easier and easier. So stop sitting on the permises and stand on the Promise of God and go!!

the walk

It is said "the journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step" Many of you are standing still and being fearful of taking that first step. You say "no one walks with me" this is untrue! Because if you are a believer in Jesus Christ UHe is always with you and will never leave you. He is right by your side ready to guide direct strengthen and encourage.

It may seem like no one walks with you and often times this road will feel lonely but know this for certain that you have many who have gone before you cheering you on and the Lord will be right there through the good, the bad and the ugly and everything in between. Just pray and ask Him. He will listen to all your fear and hand those fears to him and he'll take them away and replace them with the power to move on and continue.

Fear not my brother and sister for I know that walking the road sees dark at times but joy will come in the morning. Just wait on the Lord and He'll renew your strength. Stay in continual meditation of the Word and prayer. You won't go wrong when you do that.

For me I want to serve the Lord in a arena where I speak motivationally, to inspire or simplely just teaching the Word of God. When and where I don't know. But am willing to go where He sends me and am assured that he'll provide the means and way for it all to take place. I trust in an awesome God and know His way is perfect and that he'll never send me where He himself wouldn't go and will not allow me to go through anything that can't be handled.

So cheer dear saints and smile for your Master the Lord Jesus has a plan for you and will helpyou to see it through. Walk don't run and go at the speed he sets for He knows best.
