Everyone Is A Good Singer Around Campfire

I Can Never Be Thankful Enough;

I Can Never Sing Holishly Enough;
Your Presence Always Offers Me Abundant Peace;
A Reminder That God Is Truly Alive;
A Testimony Of Faith At Work;
A Reminder That Your Faith Can Turn God’s Eyes To You;
A Reminder To Be A Faithful Servant On The Wait;
A Reminder That He Never Left Nor Denied;
Hence, It Was A Delay In Preparation Of Kingdom Diamonds For You!

Truth Fears Nothing, But Concealment

2 Timothy 2:15

15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.

The world is full of seekers, true enough, and they gravitate quite naturally toward the church. Seekers after peace of mind are plentiful enough to keep the printing presses busy; seekers after physical health are always with us in sufficient numbers to make our leading faith healers comfortably rich; seekers after success and safety are legion, as our popular religious leaders know too well.

Henceforth, real seekers after truth are almost as rare as albino deer. And here is why: Truth is glorious, but hard master. It makes moral demands upon us. It claims the sovereign right to control us, to strip us, even to slay us as it chooses. Truth will never stop to be a servant, but requires that all men serve it.

To break the ice, it never flatters men and never compromises with them. It demands all or nothing and refuses to be used or patronized. It will be all in all or it will withdraw into silence. It was Christ who capitalized truth and revealed that it was not an it at all, but a being with all the attributes of personality.

I am the Truth, He said, and followed truth straight to the cross. The truth seeker must follow Him there; and that is the reason few men seek truth.

Saying Goodbye To The Rut

Jesus gives the story of the man who was covetous and lost his soul. So do not be covetous–be generous. Do not be stingy, but be free with your money. Do not be afraid–thank the Lord, trust Him and put fear away. These are examples of the constituted means of faith and obedience.

We sing this and do not know we are singing it: “Trust and obey, for there”s no other way/ To be happy in Jesus, But to trust and obey.” We sing that, but we have sung it so long that we might as well sing Mother Goose rhymes, because we do not know what we are singing. Some of us are down in a spiritual rut, the old routine. Nothing has any taste to it.

Hence, some churches try to handle that by pandering to the situation, bringing in every kind of weird clap-trap in order to get some of the poor half-dead people to get a little taste again. We have God. We have Christ. We have truth. We have a world needing help. We have the saints, and we have the power of prayer. We have the joy of obedience and we have the sweet wonder of His presence. We have the joy of Christian song. We have all this and we do not need garbage. We have God. All we have to do is trust in His Son Jesus Christ and obey the truth, and the Lord will manifest Himself, show Himself through the lattice.

Sin’s Cure

Only God could reconstruct the world and allow for such reversals of fact; but anyone can tinker at it theoretically. Had Hitler, for instance, been a good and gentle man, six million Jews now dead would be living (making allowance for a certain few who would have died in the course of nature); had Stalin been a Christian, several million Russian farmers would be alive who now molder in the earth. And consider the thousands of little children who died of starvation because one man had a revengeful spirit; think of the millions of displaced persons who wander over the earth even today unable to locate mother or father or wife or child because men with hate in their hearts managed to get into places of power; think of the young men of almost every nation, sick with yearning for home and loved ones, who guard the empty wastes and keep watch on frozen hills in the far corners of the earth, all because one ruler is greedy, another ambitious; because one statesman is cowardly and another jealous.

To come down from the bloody plains of world events and look nearer home, how many wives will sob themselves to sleep tonight because of their husband’s savage temper; how many helpless, bewildered, heartbroken children will cower in their dark bedrooms, sick with shock and terror as their parents curse and shout at each other in the next room. Is their quarrel private? Is it their own business when they fight like animals in the security of their home? No, it is the business of the whole human race. Children to the third and fourth generation in many parts of the world will be injured psychologically if not physically because a man and his wife sinned inside of four walls. No sin can be private.

Coming still closer, we Christians should know that our unchristian conduct cannot be kept in our own back yard. The evil birds of sin fly far and influence many to their everlasting loss. The sin committed in the privacy of the home will have its effect in the assembly of the saints. The minister, the deacon, the teacher who yields to temptation in secret becomes a carrier of moral disease whether he knows it or not. The church will be worse because one member sins. The polluted stream flows out and on, growing wider and darker as it affects more and more persons day after day and year after year.

But thanks be to God, there is a cure for the plague. There is a balm in Gilead. “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9).

Christ Precedence

If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters–yes, even his own life–he cannot be my disciple. And anyone who does not carry his cross and follow me cannot be my disciple?

What Christ is saying here is that faith in Him immediately introduces another and a higher loyalty into the life. He demands and must have first place. For the true disciple it is Christ before family, Christ before country, Christ before life itself. The flesh must always be sacrificed to the spirit and the heavenly placed ahead of the earthly, and that at any cost. When we take up the cross, we become expendable, along with all natural friendships and all previous loyalties, and Christ becomes all in all.

In these days of sweet and easy Christianity, it requires inward illumination to see this truth and real faith to accept it. We had better pray for both before time runs out on us.

The Cost Of Following Jesus

Luke 9:57-62
[57]As they were walking along, someone said to Jesus, “I will follow you wherever you go.”
[58]But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.”
[59]He said to another person, “Come, follow me.”The man agreed, but he said, “Lord, first let me return home and bury my father.”
[60]But Jesus told him, “Let the spiritually dead bury their own dead! Your duty is to go and preach about the Kingdom of God.”
[61]Another said, “Yes, Lord, I will follow you, but first let me say good-bye to my family.”
[62]But Jesus told him, “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of God.”

To break the ice, there is eternal life and all the various kinds of blessings in the Kingdom to those whom loves and follows the Lord, Jesus with all they have.

Henceforth, easier said than done. With all the goodies of following Christ Jesus, it is never easy to leave everything behind and begin the journey with Christ. Actually, following Christ truthfully needs a person whom is tired of life and everything he/she was and is still doing.

One has to sacrifice despite how painful it may be. It also counts with leaving your family to follow Christ, greeting good bye to your lifelong friends you grew up with to follow Christ, saying goodbye to the burying of your family and friends. Following Christ results in God being the centre of everything in your life. You have to worry less about everything.

If as a youth, you have a boyfriend or girlfriend whom sometimes you ditch Christ for, the girlfriend-boyfriend relationship has to be sacrificed for good so that as you follow Christ, the Lord can bring the one which follows Christ as well.

Furthermore, the journey with Christ is never easy for it consists of telling people about Heaven and Hell at every spot of meetings. It consists of traveling all the World with no knowledge of where to sleep, eat nor bath daily. Hence, all that matters is that you are following Christ and your faith grows tremendously.

In the Kingdom, you preach the word no matter happy or saddened. All that matters is that the word is told to the world, and all the citizens knows the truth about eternal life. Eventually, their decision is to follow Christ wherever, whenever and whatever they doing to stop and move forward with Christ.

Additionally, if one doubts while Following Christ, he/she has not followed Christ wholely. Or either, if one followed Christ and still looks back, he/she has not fiercely sacrificed his/her old ways in order to purely follow Christ.

Following Christ has never been easy, because it is quite costly. It does not cost silver and/or gold, but it cost all the person’s life. Following Christ is priceless.
