God in Full Measure

April 10, 2017

""I know that the Lord has given you the land ... For we have heard how the Lord dried up the water of the Red Sea before you ... when we heard it, our hearts melted and no courage remained in any man any longer because of you; for the Lord your God, He is God in heaven above and on earth beneath."" (Joshua 2:9-11)

There are many half-hearted Christians who are not walking in the Spirit. They bear the name of Christ, but there is no visible evidence of Him in their daily lives. Sadly, they create a negative impact for the gospel, as if being a Christian makes no real difference.

REPUTATION DISPLAYERS

But there are many authentic believers who walk out of Egypt in the power of the Spirit. They follow Christ by faith, facing Red Seas and seeing them part, enemies and seeing them fall, and needs and seeing them met by the power of God.

Such men and women are used by God to show the world who God really is. They are not creating a reputation for God, but displaying it They become the conduits for the miraculous God to be on display.

And when God is REALLY seen through a surrendered believer, or group of believers, it has a powerful effect on all who watch. For they have rarely seen God in full measure in the lives of those they know.

THE END RESULT FOR “RELIGIOUS BUT FOOLISH” MEN AND WOMEN

February 14, 2024

The church is often, sadly, a microcosm of the world. Many churches contain both wise and foolish men and women. Jesus was the one who declared that there would be both “wheat and tares” even in the church, i.e., people who were genuine believers and those who professed to be believers but were not.
