Lets Examine Ourselves

We read in the Bible about what Jesus and His disciples lived. They believed or should I say knew they had eternal life. This is why we are living in this world. As Christians the only reason to be alive is to share the Gospel with others and to grow in our connection with God, Jesus and His Holy Spirit. Please understand if you are not sharing Jesus with others daily, if you are not sharing the Good News that Jesus came to earth with the intention of giving forgiveness to all who allow Him, if we live in the world and only place our minds and hearts on Jesus on Sunday. Then I truly believe we are fooling ourselves in thinking we are Christians. We are fooling ourselves in thinking we are believers. If someone is a believer in Jesus and what He said, they know they have eternal life and that they will be in Heaven for eternity, therefore it would be impossible not to tell everyone we can about His Free Gift of eternal life.

The main reason people do not share the Gospel is they have never been shown how, they have never been equipped. Pastors need to equip their congregations. This has to be done by the example of the Pastor or Evangelism Leader. This means going out with them and showing them how to Share the Gospel. This is what Jesus did and what the disciples did.

We live in a fallen world. A world that has rejected God even after He came to the world in the form of a man, CHRIST Jesus . Jesus told us in the Gospel of John 15, If the world hates you know that it hates me befohates you. If they persecuted me the will persecute you. If we are living as Jesus, there are those who will hate us..

After reading this ask yourself, who am I to question God? 

Then the Lord answered Job from the whirlwind. He said:Who is this who obscures My counsel with ignorant words?Get ready to answer Me like a man; when I question you, you will inform Me.Where were you when I established the earth? Tell Me, if you have understanding.Who fixed its dimensions? Certainly you know! Who stretched a measuring line across it?What supports its foundations? Or who laid its cornerstonewhile the morning stars sang together and all the sons of God shouted for joy?Who enclosed the sea behind doors when it burst from the womb,when I made the clouds its garment and thick darkness its blanket,when I determined its boundaries and put its bars and doors in place,when I declared: “You may come this far, but no farther; your proud waves stop here”?Have you ever in your life commanded the morning or assigned the dawn its place,so it may seize the edges of the earth and shake the wicked out of it?The earth is changed as clay is by a seal; its hills stand out like the folds of a garment.Light is withheld from the wicked, and the arm raised in violence is broken.Have you traveled to the sources of the sea or walked in the depths of the oceans?Have the gates of death been revealed to you? Have you seen the gates of deep darkness?Have you comprehended the extent of the earth? Tell Me, if you know all this.Where is the road to the home of light? Do you know where darkness lives,so you can lead it back to its border? Are you familiar with the paths to its home?Don’t you know? You were already born; you have lived so long!Have you entered the place where the snow is stored? Or have you seen the storehouses of hail,which I hold in reserve for times of trouble, for the day of warfare and battle?What road leads to the place where light is dispersed? Where is the source of the east wind that spreads across the earth?Who cuts a channel for the flooding rain or clears the way for lightning,to bring rain on an uninhabited land, on a desert with no human life,to satisfy the parched wasteland and cause the grass to sprout?Does the rain have a father? Who fathered the drops of dew?Whose womb did the ice come from? Who gave birth to the frost of heavenwhen water becomes as hard as stone, and the surface of the watery depths is frozen?Can you fasten the chains of the Pleiades or loosen the belt of Orion?Can you bring out the constellations in their season and lead the Bear and her cubs?Do you know the laws of heaven? Can you impose its authority on earth?Can you command the clouds so that a flood of water covers you?Can you send out lightning bolts, and they go? Do they report to you: “Here we are”?Who put wisdom in the heart or gave the mind understanding?Who has the wisdom to number the clouds? Or who can tilt the water jars of heavenwhen the dust hardens like cast metal and the clods of dirt stick together?Can you hunt prey for a lioness or satisfy the appetite of young lionswhen they crouch in their dens and lie in wait within their lairs?Who provides the raven’s food when its young cry out to God and wander about for lack of food? – Job 38:1-41 http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Job38:1-41&version=HCSB

JOHN 15 clarifies this. Only the Spirit of God can bring someone to The knowledge of The truth. This truth is that Jesus will cleanse anyone of all Sin if they would but ask. This is why it’s urgent that all those who know this truth must understand that we are God’s mouth, the Spirit desires that we use our words to allow others to hear and know that without the cleansing blood of Jesus none will see the Kingdom of God.
