2  Fellowship / You name it!! / How would you rather live? on: August 04, 2003, 03:51:46 PM
Be well known and liked or put to shame for the gospel?

Have everything and yet have nothing, or have nothing but everything you do have to give it away!

Be prosperous and shout about how God has given you this and that, or quietly help those in need without any one knowing?

Be up the 'front' in all you do or serve with humilty in the background!

Do your best to bless people or curse them and move on

Go to every meeting you can in a week or spend some time with your family

Be so heavenly minded that you are no earthly good
be so heavenly minded that you are a great good on earth
(You Decide which fits best)

Reply soon with your thoughts

8  Fellowship / You name it!! / Idea! on: July 13, 2003, 07:20:23 PM
A good idea, is as good as a bad idea, if it is not God's idea ?

When was the last time you did something for the first time ?

Christian sky diving ? What's the difference ?
You still have to jump out of a perfectly good aeroplane, christian or not! Why jump out of a good one that works and is quite able of landing again?

A christian retreat! Why retreat? should'nt we advance?

Jumping on crocodiles, a new book by Hugo first!

 Cheesy
Hey Guys.
You know if we think about the news today we would say I guess that 98% of it is bad! This old world of ours is falling apart at the seems! We know it is all in God's plan and that He is Sovereign over all but I would encourage you today to do your bit to bring a little bit of sunshine into somebody's life.
BLESS SOMEONE TODAY!
Buy someone lunch!
Send Some flowers!
Clean somebody's car!
Take someone out for the day who maybe needs a break!
Help out around the home!

And I am not talking about your best friends and your christian brothers and sisters only!
As we do these things we are storing up treasure in heaven and it will bless you! Give something away today! Something of yourself, something lasting, You will be happy, they will be happy, and God will rejoice over you with singing too! Can't be bad eh?
God bless you all
Grazbo!
11  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:A lifestyle of worship! Is it yours? on: June 27, 2003, 03:29:45 AM
Kristen Hi!

It just occured to me that where I am coming from is substantiated by the parable of the unmerciful servant!
Matthew 18 verses 21 to end. Verse 35 being the crux of the matter. Which ties in with Matthew 6 verses 14 & 15.

If God does things for me then I go and do the opposite to my fellow man then I am in trouble. Plain and simple, no getting around it!

I am sorry I did not explain myself clearly the first time!
12  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:A lifestyle of worship! Is it yours? on: June 27, 2003, 03:02:47 AM
I agree with you wholeheartedly and have amended my post to make it a bit clearer! I am talking 'post' salvation. I know that God has forgiven us and that is a wonderful gift but, we as christians have an obligation to obey God's laws and commands as Paul said? "shall we go on sinning because of God's grace"? NO! We need to live the life that God intends for us, Loving our enemies, Forgiving those who do us wrong, Making sure our hands are clean and our hearts are pure before God in all things. Yes when we mess up God is right there to forgive us. But if we deliberately keep on sinning i.e unforgiveness in our hearts then God in turn will not forgive us.
The same as with any sin that if unconfessed, will cut us off from God!
As I am coming from the point of living a lifestyle of worship then I hope you will agree that this is a necessary part of our christian life and as I said. Something we need to practice!

It is good discussing this with you!

13  Fellowship / You name it!! / Re:A lifestyle of worship! Is it yours? on: June 26, 2003, 07:45:53 PM
Hey Kristan I won't say that I do not know where you are coming from but let me be clear about this! Matthew 6 verses 14-15 tell us to practice forgiveness!And plainly states that if we cannot forgive then God won't forgive us!  Yes we are forgiven when we come to God in repentance but we should also forgive others and let's be honest, that is not as easy at it sounds in this life! We have to be aware that if we truly want to come before God then we have to make sure we have no unforgiveness in our hearts towards others. If we do then God cannot accept our praise, our prayers, our worship and as the bible says clearly, He can't forgive us either!
14  Fellowship / You name it!! / A lifestyle of worship! Is it yours? on: June 26, 2003, 06:08:43 AM
Worship is not music and singing, having an orchestra or the latest songs.
We don't sing to worship, we sing because we worship. Music and instruments etc are just 'Tools' to aid us. True worship is for God and Him alone. Not for our benefit! So many people say "the worship did nothing for me today" We say, "Well so what"? It was not for you any way! The trouble comes when God says  "The worship did nothing for me today" then we have something to worry about. It's time to stop keeping God outside the building whilst we have a 'great worship time' inside.
Worship has to be a lifestyle:
1: We need to be supernaturally normal people!
2: We need to practice forgiveness. Jesus died for our sins and bought forgiveness for us! We in turn should make sure that we can forgive others just as the Father has forgiven us. Matthew 6 v 14-15 states that if we don't forgive then God won't forgive us. As with the warning about coming to the Lords table with something against a brother, this too will create a barrier between us and God if we have unforgiveness in our hearts.
3: We need to live as servants. Just as Jesus did! We need again to see the 'Volunteer culture' restored in the church. None of us are too good to do any job in the church. Rather count it a blessing to be able to serve.
4: We need to cultivate character. To many people fail as christians because their 'gifting' far outweighs their character! If you 'Talk the Talk' then make sure you 'Walk the Walk'
5: We need to find that intimate place with God.  Only as we spend time with God in that secret place, on our own, will our lives truly change and our worship become real and intimate with God. So many worship times are a washout because the people are not walking in that intimate place with God. And when Sunday comes instead of our corporate worship taking off we have to badger and cajole it and continually stoke the fires until things get warmed up.
6: We need to develop intimacy with God. Develop friendship with the Holy Spirit. Only as we truly know God can we know what He wants for us, know his thoughts for our lives. Hear His voice each day leading us and helping us.
7: We need to be totally honest. With ourselves and most of all with God. Let's face it He knows all about us anyway so why try and lie about it or cover it up.
8: We need to be persistent in our passion for God's touch, revelation,
His glorious presence.
9: We need to make time to be intimate with God. No doubt you have heard many people say "but I don't have time, I can't fit it in, there are not enough hours in the day e.t.c. Well if we go back to point 7 and are totally honest then each one of us knows without exception, that if we want to do something we will make time for it. Meals out, Football, Climbing, Films & T.V So if you really want to make time for God then.?? DO YOU REALLY WANT TO?
10: Strive to be what God has called you to be. If you know without a doubt what it is then go for it! At the same time be content with where God has you right now. So much time is wasted by dreaming of and trying to be somewhere or something that we are not. Don't force it. If God has said it then let Him do it, don't go running off in front. Remember, A good idea is as good as a bad idea, if it is not God's idea!

So my friends, instead of spending so much time on who has the best band, who writes the best songs, who's got the best congregation, Who should do what and where etc let us get our focus back where it belongs. On the 'Author and the finisher of our faith' Christ Jesus our Lord.

Jesus, the lover of our souls. He loves us so much, He wants to be intimate with us, He longs for two way communication with us, He desires our honest and heartfelt worship. He has many things still to reveal to us so let us persevere and not grow weary. Let us not give up, let's strive to do all we can so that God will be proud of us and can say to the father, this is my servant, he walked the walk and he talked the talk, and he did all that I asked him to do.    GLORY!
