Retweet - Martyrs

Image
There are some Christian leaders that I look at and think,  "Are they following the same Jesus I am?" But then I read stories about ancient Christian martyrs, and I wonder, "Am I following the same Jesus as THEM?"

Crackers, Grape Juice & Faith

Christ comes, as the King whose Kingdom is built upon hope, love and faith.Centering our faith in the cross is not an easy road to take. It means our faith acknowledges weakness rather than power. It means learning you lose your life to find it. In this final chapter of John's Epistle he brings his focus back to Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and to what faith in Christ is all about.

Can't Tell Ya

Are you holding a close secret? Are you mum on something you're not supposed to tell anyone? If you’re like many folks I’ve met, you’re holding ‘something or other’ pretty close to your vest. And in doing so, as SNL’s Mike Myers would say: “Oh, I'm getting a little verklempt (farklempt). Most stuff is worth sharing, especially with the right person. While sharing personal “stuff” might seem like an invasion of privacy, it’s so worth the “vulnerability hangover”It’s worth being misunderstood and misrepresented. There’s desirability in discomfort. It's worth the death of your self-image and maybe even your brand. There’s benefit to owning up to what’s inside, no matter how difficult, because as the Psalmist wrote: Hidden things will always come out into the open. Secret things will come to light and be exposed.[1] Secrets bring bondage, sharing brings freedom. Freedom.

Let’s have a great conversation, 
Wednesday October 3rd @ 7pm,
listening to and learning from each other.  Here’s what’s in store:  One big thing to note from 1 John 4,  is: "do not believe in every spirit." Okay? Just because a speaker waxes eloquently about godly things doesn’t mean their from God - you've got to put these folks to the test. The test involves making sure these people and ideas center on the fact that Jesus came in the flesh, (he was not a android). He was crucified, died and was buried; that He rose on the third day & ascended into heaven + He will come again. The Apostle John says that lots of false prophets and ‘antichrists’ are peddling some nonsense about Jesus, this is…bad. Very bad. John finishes off the chapter four by saying that if you go around saying that you love God but you're hating on other Christians, then you're just a liar...#pkes Directions #MinMChurch  #MetroLifeChurch
