Thank God for our Preacher!
Ive been going to our church many years I want to thank God for a preacher that does not change knowing we have a God that changes not!
I want to thank God for a preacher that does not change knowing we have a God that changes not! Dress standards is something when I went to public school not many of us complained if we did it didnt change the rules! People need to see there is something different with the church crowd!
3:8 And they heard the voice of the LORD God walking in the garden in the cool of the day: and Adam and his wife hid themselves from the presence of the LORD God amongst the trees of the garden.
Before I blame Eve and want to judge her I must remember Luke 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:
Its not my place to play the Holy Spirit Of God.Its our nature to blame someone else and its our nature to beat up on someone that sins. .John 8:10 where are all thine accusers?8:7 So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.
8:8 And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.
8:9 And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.
8:10 When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? It was told to this crowd beforehand condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned That would make me scatter as well as anyone.
No one can enjoy a crowd of laughter when there is hurting going on inside,A church is supposed to be a Christians hospital and a woodshop of God we have good people go back sliding i work and pray to get a person to church and sometimes people dont understand that it was grief heart aches sorrow and so on that caused them to go astray or that kept them from entering in a church and the first thing people want to do is throw that person away stare at the broken pieces I have heard people say that so in so doesnt like me because they never talk has it ever occurred to you that the person might be shy or broken?Sometimes a person might not be at a scale where they are supposed to be because they never grew in that area when they were a child and God is working on them?Its our job to pray and help fix the wounded not to figure out why.A person finally comes to church that was back slidden and all the person can feel is the spirit of unforgiveness Why cant we go up to the person and wrap our arms around them and say im glad your back and forgeting what was behind not kicking them in the behind and talk behind their back . Some people expect everyone to be just like them Didnt God say some are the feet some the hands
....?When we push a person to sit somewhere in church or to do something we want them to do I believe we just caused that person to fall back further We have to stop and think we can not change ourself or anyone else He is the potter we are just the clay.My son called his Dad yesterday and said he has a new dog that is very scared 4 years old my husband told him leave the dog alone the dog will come around when he is ready.I Know people that wont go back to church in fear the pastor will call on them to pray.Some I know because they have a birthday coming and dont want to be sung to.It is not a good excuse to stay home but we dont know what that person is going through We need to help bind up the wounds not make them deeper Paul had to go through alot people knew him has a murderer they had to trust God in order to trust him.Jesus loved and cared for Judas right up to his death.
If we can walk by people in church that are broken and never look them in the eye or show we care then how can we say we love God who we have not seen we cant love a man we have seen. how can we love God that we have seen?Jack Hyles said treat every man like they are having a bad day.i know in my life the times i go through bad days people dont understand why i make an issue out of a little thing when they dont see the list before what they are doing.I Try to tell my self be kind i could be the one that could cause a man to jump off the cliff.Be kind to everyone is what I need to remind my self of.
We will get further with people with kindness than rudeness and a disfigured face.
