Why Some People Find The Christians life Hard.
By Dr. J. A McBean.Th., MCC
P eople have many vague ideas and bad mentality of how the Christian life is to be lived. When such a person became a Christian, these same bad perceptions came in conflict with the reality of Christianity. The long list of wrongs and rights that they been carrying around, now that they are converted to Christianity they are entrapped by these same ideas. When you are out of the boxing, matches you can talk the fight, but wait until you are in the ring. You and I are not save by stop sinning. Whoever told you that when you become a Christian, you suppose to stop sinning has roped you up really good. We are sinners save by grace.
1Jn 1:8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us. 1Jn 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1Jn 1:10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make Him a liar, and His Word is not in us.
Eph 2:8 For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God, Eph 2:9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
Zec 4:6 Then he answered and spoke to me, saying, This is the Word of Jehovah to Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by My Spirit, says Jehovah of Hosts. Zec 4:7 Who are you, O great mountain? Before Zerubbabel you shall become a plain; and he shall bring forth the top stone with shoutings, Grace! Grace to it!
When the Lord saves a sinner, he does not prescribe a harder life than what the sinner would have live, if he or she remains in sin. If after you meet the lord, you still have difficulty finding your daily food, you would have starved to death if you did not meet the lord. If no man show you mercy among God’s people. What do you suppose to get among the people who do not know God?
St Matthew 11:30 (KJV) For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. )( Hosea 4:6 (KJV) My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge-- )( Isaiah 5:13 (KJV) Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honorable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst.)( Proverbs 13:15 (KJV) Good understanding giveth favor: but the way of transgressors is hard.
The reason why some Christians find it difficult to live the Christians life is that they have a vague concept of righteousness, sin, holiness, and faith. We major in the things that do not matter and the things that really matters we minor in it. My reader might have heard about the new doctrine call, “Naming it and claiming it” You and I can only claim stuffs that are in the will of God for us. In addition, even then, you have to reach the level of faith where you can exercise it. I was driving down the road with a believer, when he showed me a house and told me that, that is his house. I believe that is where the man lives. A few weeks later I found out that, that is other people house the man name and claim. Now! He has the wrong concept of how faith work therefore, when things fail to materialize they went off and say there is no God. Some Christians, thinks that they are save because they pays their tithes. Other thinks they are in good standing with God because they do not drink wine, and having no illicit sex. He or she goes to church on the Saturday Sabbaths for three hours in an air condition building, and this they think saves them for all eternity.
Learn To Know And Follow The Leading Of The Holy Spirit.
St John 14:26 (KJV) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Some People Do Not Give, But Want To Get.
St Mark 11:25 (KJV)And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any: that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.
James 5:15 (KJV) And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
Ephes. 6:18 (KJV) Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Stop Praying Now And Listen
St Matthew 6:7 (KJV) But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Joshua 7:10 (KJV) And the Lord said unto Joshua, Get thee up; wherefore liest thou thus upon thy face?
Exodus 14:15 (KJV) And the Lord said unto Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the children of Israel, that they go forward:
A vague Concept Of Holy Living.
The Change Take Place In Your Inward Man
The Change In The Outward Man Take Place When Christ Returns
Sometime Only Jesus Can Help Us
Romans 5:6 (KJV) For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:7 (KJV) For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. Romans 5:8 (KJV) But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Romans 5:9 (KJV) Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. Romans 5:10 (KJV) For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life. Romans 5:11 (KJV) And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by whom we have now received the atonement.
Matthew 6:33-AV But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Isaiah 55:6-AV Seek ye the LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: Isaiah 55:7-AV Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts: and let him return unto the LORD, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.
