The Church of God can only have ONE foundation and that is Christ. Today, there are so many Christian churches in the world, that it is impossible to count them all! But a serious question arises when you see division a thousandfold – can this really be the structure of God? Does God build a house like this for Himself? That is divided amongst itself into a thousand pieces? Or maybe God has a thousand houses? Doesn’t the Bible teach us about ONE house, ONE building? Why has it become that each Christian denomination or group built something of their own? And somehow all the denominations rely on one stone? But if they all had one stone or the same foundation, then shouldn’t there also be complete unity, as the Gospel teaches us? When Moses was building the tabernacle for God, which is a foreshadowing of the Church, how did he build it? I think everyone knows how everything was specifically held together and connected to one another. And it should be the same for us Christians today; we are the members of the Body of Christ! The building of God cannot be divided within itself! If there are divisions then it is no longer a structure of God but rather a soulful, earthly, man-made structure.
When the sky rumbles,
When the trees fall,
I will have my faith in the face of the Lord!
When you’re barely breathing,
When you cannot see,
When the whole world is against you,
Everyone believes in something. Everyone has some kind of faith, a spiritual drive, and this is your real life, what you live for. Unfortunately, christianity has become a tradition, a culture. But the REAL faith that drives every individual lies WITHIN and it’s usually earthly. Why do people come to church? Usually, it’s because they want to save their kids, or they want to get healthy, get married, have a nice family, social networking, etc. This is a short list. However, even out of this short list, how many things mentioned are actually heavenly? Christ brought a teaching not for this earth, He spoke of ANOTHER world! True Christianity is about Another world and has nothing to do with the earthly, the passing.
What does it mean to be sincere, to have a sincere faith? The deception can come that you may think you are sincere in church or before God when praying, but in other circumstances, in your day to day life you are a little different. But doesn’t God see all? Shouldn’t your life be a living prayer, a live standing in front of God? Thinking that you are sincere in front of God, when you are not sincere in front of a person, is completely absurd! How can you be split inside? How many sincere people do you know? Are you sincere?
There is no way to turn back time, And like a Shadow days go by, The only question that’s around: What is the meaning of your life?
Once we have died for this world, we have been crucified for ALL idols and all things of this world, and have been born again a NEW creature, pure and free. “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.” (Galations 5:24) YET there is still a warning for those that have been born again to KEEP yourselves from idols. “Little children, keep yourselves from idols.” (1 John 5:21) It is a question about distractions! If ANYTHING other than God consumes you or distracts you, that is an idol!
Paul is telling Corinthians that the suffering he is undergoing is really for them. How was Paul’s suffering for the Corinthians? To bring it back to us and our life, how is it that my suffering is for someone else or vice versa? We can be of help to one another much more than just quoting scriptures, but quoting scriptures with supported real life experiences! That is how a real Body of Christ works and grows in love. If you are in the same body, ONE BODY, then you are experiencing things together, upholding one another in Faith!
Our hearts should be in the future, not in the past! Do you have a future? What future is awaiting you? Is heaven awaiting you?
Life in Christ is simple, it starts with a belief that I have died for everything and I’ve resurrected a NEW being in Christ! You then live like a new being, having no past. The only thing that gets in the way is doubt!
Today the message that we are saved by Grace and not by works is everywhere and not new. Unfortunately, the devil has taken this message and made another religion out of it. He took it to the extreme where people today don’t even care how their hearts are! Christ never taught not to worry about your heart. What will appear when Christ comes, is not what you know, say, or think, but your inner being. And if there is no Christ there, no peace, no love, you will not rise with Him! It is extremely important and serious to really look at yourself and not be so shallow!
