THE WHOSOEVERS Who are they? Those who come to him!
John 6:37 “whoever comes to me I will never cast out. This is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks to the Son and believes in him should have eternal life.” John 6:37 ESV
I spoke at a church not long ago, and had a lady confront me that I didn’t include Buddhism, and other religions when I was talking about Ephesians 4 and growing up toward the Head which is Christ. She seemed to think I was narrow-minded. Yep I probably am! Narrow is the door (Jesus said). Narrow.
I said well, I’m hear to talk about Jesus and us growing up toward the Head, which is Christ. a guy in the group said “Jesus is the way” but she was undaunted. She continued to talk about Buddhism and how much it was like Christianity as she went out the door. She was there to attend bible study.
I find myself wondering …..why go to a bible study if you have not already come to Jesus? but see, many believe Christianity is a learned thing. It’s not.
Its a surrendered- heart to- Jesus your- Lord thing. Not a learned thing. A heart -thing. A born- again thing. A supernatural experience with Jesus. Living water! Bread of life in the form of annointed words to your receiving ears!
You cannot enter the Kingdom of God without being “born again” ……and Christianity IS NOT A RELIGION It’s a relationship with Jesus Christ and receving him as Saviour and Lord.
If it was something else I would be down at the bar drinking and having a great time ……..
Because religion is dry and boring. (and lifeless) Jesus is LIFE! I am so baffled someone can go to church and not even believe…….
but it happens. I Hope I was a light in that place! Personally I have no interest in a church that would even dare to be JESUS LESS or start saying Christianity is all- inclusive with other Beliefs. IF that is ever the only church there is I will not be in church. You’l lfind me somewhere in a garden….
Praying in Jesus’ name. -Laura Grace
I am an evangelist, and I live in a really small town. On top of that I have this pastor type heart along with it. God gave it to me. I can’t do anything about it, It’s just there. Oh, and I also play guitar, and sing in my local church.
God decides what the gifts are (in a person) we don’t decide for ourselves.
I live in a small town, sort of in the middle of “nowhere” and most people I know here, already go to church. So who will I Evangelize? The cows? Horses?
You may wonder how I know this about myself. I will tell you. Years ago after a hair raising experience for months with a person next door to me (she was super mean) the body of Elders at my church layed hands on me and with the power of God all over me I heard “LORD, Make her a soul winner!” and since that day I’m not afraid to witness.
Anywhere, Anytime. I will pray with anyone “ask them” if they know the Lord. If a soldier in Christ is falling apart- I have faith to pray they will be renewed, restored, or even be brought back to life again. God put this in me, and I have cherished and kept it and fed it and watered it.
I’ve been hesitant to say “what I am” because honestly, who cares about titles?
Lately I’ve found myself just suffering with the daily grind of working, chores, dishes, cooking, errands and my heart longs to get out there and Meet people, pray with them, see what God wants to do next. I want to walk in the Spirit (of God) RUN in the Spirit and flow in him! There is always work to be done, and it seems to never end. Just……..I have this blazing passion to do more than just “tend to the house”
See, I know we have to be a good steward of what we have. I don’t believe in hounding people for money so I can do God’s work. So we are taking vacation and we are going to Go…….See what God has for us to do. We’re going to pray and watch for opportunities to touch someone for Jesus………
Today I am asking myself not “what can you do for me Father?” But “what can I do for you today?” What would you like? Who do you want to reach today? What hearts to you want to touch? How would you like me to pray?
I would love it if you would please Join me in prayer as we travel The 9th to the 15th of July and believe WITH US For miracles for every day people we find along the way ….
Jesus lives in me! And HE wants to flow through me! And HE wants to touch people every where I go! Will you pray with me? I’m believing for great things this week.
I want to Make a Difference Father
WITH YOU I can! I really can! send me to whom you want me to pray with speak to, give them a hug….encouragement…..whatever you want
“Your servant always….” Laura Grace PS “great stories when I get back!” Thanks for your prayers! Love and blessings!
