The Whole Bible Explained in 7 1/2 minutes!

October 2, 2015

Quite a few years ago we attended a Bible group where we were taught the over all theme of the Bible.  I enjoyed so much I just wondered if it was still there.  Yes, here it is!  Produced on YouTube by:  Sadly, you have to have a YouTube account to see this but check out the next one. Then I found another YouTube by Ben Samulak to see the overall view of the Bible and yes in a humorous way:

I trust you enjoyed this break from our series as you took ‘A Walk Through the Bible’.

10/23 So what are we Resisting in Hearing God?

October 10, 2015

teen6We are continuing to look at the 10 essential steps in maturity as we follow Jesus!

 The main aim for this step in your growth as a Jesus Follower and haring God is to add your strength and will power to remove whatever is in your Heart that feeds the problem. This means being that partner with the Holy Spirit, to follow Him in the ‘ahaaa’ that comes with conviction – not condemnation!

Rather than just ‘grit your teeth and endure’, we need to see what is at the bottom of the issues we face. Sometimes this means a spiritual journey but sometimes it may mean seeing what is at the ‘heart’ of a physical problem.

10/24 Forgiveness, an essential key in Hearing God

October 22, 2015conditions

scroll and quillIn our last post, we encouraged you to spend some time with the Lord and write out a list of PEOPLE that have been a wrong influence in your life. This can often be the roots of the problem, or sin you are resisting.

To be free of the hurt, the wrong influence and the emotions attacked to these people, most often forgiveness is the ONLY weapon.

We covered some of this in our posts 10/18 & 10/19.

Forgiveness does not always come with a feeling. Forgiveness starts with a choice. Most Christians know a lot about the subject of forgiveness but often stumble at HOW to do it. Some people try doing it with their mind and will but the Lord said to forgive …. from the Heart.

10/24b Then comes Forgiving Yourself in Hearing God

October 22, 2015

phoneAccepting God’s forgiveness as a way of dealing with the past behaviour or any sin He convicts you about is one step closer to receiving Freedom.  However another pothole many people fall into is … forgiving themselves.

This step is connected to allowing God’s love and His grace into your Heart.  Of course your Head knows He forgives us but then, can we forgive the person who did the wrong -the person who was you.

Again, at the bottom of self-forgiveness is some of the same reasons why we have trouble accepting God’s forgiveness.  Self-judgement, feeling trapped into whatever behaviour led to the sin, not seeing a way out of the situation – all contribute to doing what we did.  However the biggest reason for not forgiving ourselves is pride.  That old song “I did it my way…” echoes through the human race again and again.
