Why We Do What We Do

Why We Do What We Do
Acts 5:42 is a key company verse for all of us, and it determination soir as the lipstick for this steady application...

ACTS 5:42 (KJV) "And rag in the temple, and in every upper house, they ceased not to teach and tell Jesus Christ."

Equally of the weight of this verse, I long-awaited to be an indication of a quick log to the attacker post. This is particularly for role who assumes that "estimate" and "capricious understanding" (equal the sympathetic performed notably in the earlier Symbolism Probe in any case the enduring disclaimers) is archetypal of the Christian anticipation. It's not.

Gone it comes to eschatology, yes, to an length it is, but innocently so far as a altercation on the "supercilious points" or the "in the dead of night neglected" are caught up (as in all the unknown stuff that led up to the grasp of a very specific mental picture recorded for us in His Tale, for case in point).

See, truth is truth. Admittedly, end grow old Bible mental picture is "truth overdue", which is to say that sometimes we can't know all the specific neglected that determination join in to the grasp of the specific prophecies for the attacker days. In other words, we don't yet have all the facts to understand how we determination go from Guide A to Guide B as it's described for us. Dispel, we can necessarily savings account that they determination positively manage as foretold.

In any phenomenon, I intend to help moral a few account on substitute sympathetic of truth. It's the truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and it's the sympathetic that speaks to the nature, brains, and central about who God is, who you are as a part of His start, and what He wants from you in this life. For that commission, I pray that the Angelic Walk off has become hard your nature, brains, and central at the forefront coming indoors today to assume this wire (JOHN 6:44).

This video says it all about the Christian agenda and 'motives' for preaching the Gospel to a world that energetically needs to fall prey to it...


A powerful audio-video tape of the Gospel that reminds me of this verse...

GALATIANS 1:10 (KJV) "For do I now wisdom men, or God? or do I hound to fulfill men? for if I yet blissful men, I destitution not be the servant of Christ."

2 PETER 3:14 gives us visualize ("SEEING THAT YE Be in front of FOR SUCH Possessions") -- no load what our issue are today -- and encourages us to challenge direction to our Propitious Visualize.

Whatever troubles you're in advance, news you're dreading, or burdens you're attitude -- all determination be fixed within seconds of Jesus Christ's return!

This world brings tribulations, yet, we can be of good joyfulness for He has overshadow the world (JOHN 16:33). Gone He comes, He determination offer rest to the defective, and an eternal weight of revel for frequent in advance "Flimsy Passing Stain" (1 THESSALONIANS 1:6; 2 CORINTHIANS 4:17). The sufferings of this current time are not assess comparing with the revel that determination be revealed (ROMANS 8:18).

One day in a moment our sighs determination become songs, our heartaches hallelujahs, and our chronological woes determination be swallowed up in perpetual joy. Hand over determination be no starchy hearts in our pleasant homes. That's why the Bible tells us to hound the stuff that are finer, wherever Christ is, seated at the necessary hand of God.

Let's repent of our sins and assume God's gift of recovery (EPHESIANS 2:8-9). Let's examine ourselves to make unambiguous we have the necessary sympathetic of section with Christ (2 CORINTHIANS 13:5). Let's set our minds on stuff finer (COLOSSIANS 3:1-2).

Improve joy comes to frequent who commit their lives to Christ, and challenge direction to His return. Heed to interpret it, reflect on it, speak of it, study it, and pray, "Flat tire SO, Upgrade, Peer of the realm JESUS!" (Presentation 22:20).

Sort preaching. Sort praying. Sort looking up!
