I am a born again believer. I am not afraid to share my faith. "But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father in heaven." Matthew 10:33
There are some gray areas that some Christians have that if they read the bible should be black and white. We have followed the world so much that sometimes what we believe is altered when it should not be. We hear on the news so many times that this or that happened but what do WE do about. Usually and sadly… not much. Below are some topics that I think we should stand up for..please feel free to post comments or other topics that I did not think about adding below.
Right and Wrong
We look at sin like a skyrise. We see towers of different sizes. This represents how we view sin. However, God is looking above does not see different sizes he looks down and sees a building period. Sin is sin to him and it does not matter what it is.
Rich and Poor
I am both spiritually rich and physically compared to most of the world. Not to say that I have alot but for those overseas I recieve more in a year than they ever may in their life. I love my job working with my kiddos but I often have to pray about who he wants me to bless today. I helps put a focus on what I am suppose to do. I am to look after the children.
THe gift of life is so amazing that there should be no reason to end it. God created us and know each of us before we are born. How sad is it to know that there are so many that do not make it to even 1 month old due to this act.
Those orphaned and Widowed
Take care of those that can not take care of themselves. We should be like a mirror and reflect his love on others.
There are so many young girls both in other countries and even here in the US that end up slaves to sin. Some physically in from of a video camera or live but there are others that end up reading porn online and get stuck in that mentality. Both have unhealthy lives and need help. Those that are physically bound need that assistance in the form of ending slavery rings. Others need help to stop watching porn and have unrealistic expectations. Either way it can be devastating.
Marriage is between a woman and a man. The man is the head of the household and will give his life for his wife. His wife listens to her husband and prays for him. They each have their roles but they work in sync to show God’s love.
Missions is an important part of the Church. But it is not the most important part. Worship is. Missions exist because there are places that do not worship God. Our ultimate goals should be telling others so we can have brothers and sisters in Christ. Will it always be easy no.. there are many that are persecuted even at this very moment. I have been to Southeastern Asia and had church in a upstairs room. That is how they live, knowing if others find out that they may lose their friends and family. They are more dependent on others meaning their friend that gives them food for wood may not want to deal with them any more. Then they can’t get milk from their cousin because she can not be seen dealing with Christians. This will only going to get worse if you read the end times and I hope those that are confessing that he or she is a Christian is ready for the ride.
Acts 17:25 King James Version (KJV)25 Neither is worshipped with men's hands, as though he needed any thing, seeing he giveth to all life, and breath, and all things;
In order to change you must want to. It can be easier to make excuses rather than deal with the real problem.
Mathew 19:21 “Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
This shows that unless we are willing to give it all then we will never have that life that Jesus wants us to have. We will start every morning stating it will change but never put the umph into it to change. We are made for so much more than just going through the motions and not living life to the fullest
While I do not have a son, I have students that I am trying to help them become the best that they can be. My question is what kind of man do I want this boy to be. I pray over all my students and it can be hard sometimes but i know that one day it will be worth it.
How can a boy become a good man? It takes time and male role models to show him what he needs to be successful.
There are too many men out there that are fathers but not daddies. There is a distinction. You can have a kid but not take care of it. About ⅓ of my students do not have fathers that are investing in them. It breaks my heart that this is the way that it is. I can not imagine not being able to call my dad if I needed him. I am a daddy’s girl and I can not even imagine what it is like for a little boy not to have his father to look up to.
Children’s children are a crown to the aged,
and parents are the pride of their children.
