Few Christians Embrace the art Of how to impart The love of God With their heart, Preferring instead To try to explain With their brain.
True Christianity must be imparted by the heart and demonstrated by caring action. It can’t be communicated by mere systematic analysis.
Sermons that try to logically explain Christianity have little impact on the heart or the behavior of the listeners. In the New Testament worshippers gathered around Jesus, not around a pastor.
Who’s on God’s side? “Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God.”
Christians don’t need physical weapons. A Christ-follower’s warfare isn’t physical combat: “Our struggle is not against flesh and blood.”
Prayer is a weapon to be used against the devil and his demonic forces. It’s not a tool to manipulate God. Full and unconditional surrender to the risen Jesus is the greatest victory any person can ever have. “Christ in you, the hope of glory.”
Christ-followers are not living to cope and just get by. We’re here to be more than conquerors by abiding in Christ and being steadfast in showing His love to everyone, even to our enemies.
Mental and emotional contaminants plague humanity. “Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.”
Who wouldn’t want to lose all their guilt and shame? That’s what the living Jesus offers.
The first war that a human fought was to rebel against God’s authority. Ever since, war has been part of rebellious human nature.
Peace within human hearts leads to peace with other people and peace between nations. Inner peace comes from making peace with God. If we can trust God to keep us breathing, then we can trust Him with everything else.
Soldier lives matter.
Civilian lives matter.
Enemy lives matter.
Your life matters!
