I hope you’re thinking. Are you? When you hear words similar to “fair-minded & unbiased” & you hear them again, & again they’re indoctrinating you – they want you to actually believe their “sales” line. (Please, if you’re a “news junky” go to 3,4,5 sources – don’t trust any one source – Except the Good News J).

UNDER-SHEPHERD

The under-shepherd of the sheep,

May need to pray while others sleep.

He prays about their personal needs,

And tries to reach each, where he feeds

Dangerously close to crevasse, deep.

Some (too many) are relying on a childhood or long-ago religious experience. It’s really an antique. I’ve bought, sold & been around some nice antiques – I’ll pick on chairs. You see this fancy old seat. It’s pretty but is it safe to recline on? It appears valuable but is it comfortable? If your religious experience is just to look at & feel nostalgic about, you’d better update it. It should be trusted to be set-on, to bear the weight of stress, and not just be a museum piece.

“Christians begin to backslide when they feel it their duty and see it their privilege to seek holiness and refuse to do it.”

God approves of certain actions & shows He does by His hallowed presence. This presence is recognized by those who have His presence dwelling in them “the witness of the Spirit.” God can’t be fooled so this approval is only on those who’re genuine. Man’s approval is shallow because man can be fooled.

1Jo 4.18

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear:

because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.”

 

 

Some of God’s better men who’d His call to Bible school were poor. They arrived with little money. They prayed in soap, stamps, shoes & left school out of debt. When they took a poor-paying-pastorate they knew how to pray & believe God. Did you see “prayed in”? God hasn’t changed but with off campu$ work & government loan$ less is heard about praying in needs, Students are graduated with $1000’s of debt AND no history of depending on God. P.S. Do your kids/grandkids know about YOUR answers to past prayers?
