BELIEVING GOD

John G. Lake
(whose quote this is)
was a man 
greatly used of God 
during the first half 
of the 20th century.

GOD NEVER DOES THIS

Self-reliance is the religion of the world. 
It is venerated in schools, 
books, movies and fairy tales. 
Beloved, we who are not of this world, 
must not forget 
to guide our children 
(and grandchildren)
to trust in Christ 
and not themselves.

NO BAD NEWS

Church should be a place 
where the person and work of Christ 
is proclaimed
in a thousand different ways,
and a place where
you are reminded WHO YOU ARE in Christ,
not who you should try and be.

SPEAK LIFE

  "Life and death 
are in the power of the tongue,
and they that love it [the tongue]
will eat of its fruits."
Proverbs 18:21
What we believe in our heart
always comes out in our speech,
 (for good or ill),
manifesting its reality
into our lives.
Believe 
what God has given 
to you in Christ, 
and believe
who you are in Christ,
and speak it.

COMMON GROUND

Sometimes the most
effective evangelism
starts with a
simple question,
and listening
to the heart.

EARS TO HEAR

The truths of the Gospel
become reality 
only when
we believe what we hear
(Hebrews 4:2).
Dare to believe God's
exceedingly great 
and precious promises
until they come to pass.
(Hebrews 6:12)

JUDGMENT OF THE UNGODLY

When God sends judgment 
on the ungodly, 
He commands deliverance
for the righteous.
(2 Peter 2:6-9; Proverbs 3:25-26, et.al.)
Believers face 
persecution (for glory)
and trials (for refining), 
but we who are God's own
are delivered from judgment,
for Christ has already
been judged in our place.
FEAR NOT.

PRE-APPROVED

You may not have had the blessing
of your earthly father's approval,
but you need never strive
for your Heavenly Father's approval
nor fear that you are not good enough.
Jesus paid the price for your
FULL APPROVAL AND ACCEPTANCE.
Eph 1:4-6

HIS LOVE FOR YOU

There's nothing that makes us
more STEADFAST
and MATURE
and IMMOVABLE
as knowing the love of God
personally
experientially
intimately
confidently
(Eph 3:17-19)

WANT TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE?


Sometimes in our longing
to do something big for God,
we forget the people around us.
It's not as glamorous
as going on a mission trip.
And it feels so ordinary.
But it's powerful.

SOON...

It will be said on that day, 
“Behold, this is our God; 
we have waited for Him, 
that He might save us. 
This is the LORD; 
we have waited for Him; 
let us be glad 
and rejoice in His salvation.”
(Isaiah 25:9)
