Daily Prayer, Bible Study produces Spiritual Strength and Joy – Not Preachers
I love Holiness Godly preaching from preachers of Righteousness. (Not self righteousness) There have been times when I had to choose between eating or going to church. That is not a hard decision when you have wonderful preachers breaking the Words of Life.
Preachers are NOT the “final results” however… that comes from Your – My determination to QUIT Sin and To FOLLOW God with ALL our Heart. Prayer and Scripture WILL Produce the Final Result.
Hear what Jehovah says
Romans 6:1-6 (KJV) What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Something really needs to be said here
There are churches – some mega churches that have youth programs that show all the young kids wearing jeans, their shirt hanging out and basically trying to look as “sloppy” as possible. The leaders have many excuse:
We want the poor kids to feel comfortable. Or… we can not get some teens to come if the girls wear dresses. Or… by dressing comfortable we can all get into relaxed worship better. There is many excuses. But – let me answer these reasons or excuses you make:
If what you say is **True** why not let everyone dress like this during regular church services? If God gets Glory one time by certain clothes… does He not also get Glory by you dressing in these jeans with shirts hanging out in regular service? In a regular service most dress to kill. And besides…
You should not try to get youth or adults into church with games, tricks, or any gimmick.
If you truly live right yourself, spend time praying seeking the face of God, preaching Heaven Sweet and hell hot… you will not have any problem getting in the young folk that really mean business. In the first place preach Holiness, preach righteousness and Godly living. The sincere will come.
The girls will look like ladies and the guys like gentlemen. Lets get some standards back into worship.
Grace is not a license to sin but rather to Look and Act like Jesus Always. Notice that as true christians you are dead to sin and DO NOT WANT to live in sin ever again. When we got saved… we instantly made up our mind to hate sin… not see how much sin we can get away with.
You are a New Creature in Christ, old things are passed away. (2Co 5:17) Washed in Jesus Blood.
Notice the following
Romans 6:6 (KJV) Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Your OLD Man was your flesh of sin. However – Now you are crucified with Jesus… that is… that your fleshly body of sin is destroyed. We read and study Scriptures and Pray so that henceforth we would serve God with all our heart… NOT Serving Sin. NOT yielding to satan, but to God Almighty.
Yes, whether you are young or old… you will be tempted by the devil… your flesh will try to take over. Do not let it! In Jesus Strength YOU have Power over satan through Jesus Name and His Blood. Pray constantly ( as much as possible ) and study KJV Bible as much as you can.
Get full of the Spirit. (Eph 5:18) The Joy of the Lord is your Strength. (Ne 8:10) (Jas 4:7,8) Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you.
Thank God for True preachers. They are examples but your true strength is in loving God with all your heart. This produces great Joy from knowing you are saved… on your way to Heaven. Not trying to look sloppy but letting your inner man shine outwardly in dress, actions, Holiness and Righteousness.
