Precious Jesus

"Afresh, precious, precious Jesus, I resign this body to You, for doing or suffering, for living or dying. Will You accept it? Will You use me for Your glory more than heretofore, that You may have some little return for all the benefits You have done to me? Oh, do grant this request; my heart longs for it, my spirit pleads for it; and "if You will, You can." You know the hot temptation of which I am the subject. Bring Your glory out of it, and keep me from the evil, and it shall be well." - Ruth Bryan

Well, I haven't even listened to the video Lyn and isn't it so true. I honestly believe part of it is the internet that has allowed people to be REAL because after all we are behind a computer aren't we and I can just say whatever I want and not be held accountable to you.

Gee, I've had some unbelievers treat me better than believers because we all have one thing in common whether saved or unsaved and that is we are all human beings. Yes we need the Gospel--it's vital but doesn't it start with meeting each other with CARE? The Church is no exception. and when I say Church I don't mean a building I mean true genuine believers.

Lyn, I've been out of Church for approximately 10 years for various reasons and I have learned more from God's word and my walk with Christ than most who are going to a Church. I don't condone NOT going but just to say that I am astonished and horrified and the lack of love and compassion for each other and the lack of desire to Know God and His living word.

Thanks Lyn and may God truly bless you today in a mighty way with his face shining ever so brightly on you his grace

Btw, I know there are various other reasons. That just happened to be at the immediate forefront.

we are sadly the Church of Laodicea but that doesn't mean there are individuals who are

Linda,
I agree, the church lacks desperately in the love and compassion field. I recently left a blog where I was a contributor because of rudeness towards some by other contributors.
I do agree with this video, the church lacks proper reverence towards a holy God. I see this in my own church, drinks brought into the sanctuary, casual dress, etc. However, I will not forsake assembling with other believers, even though it is hard to find a true bible believing church.
Thank you for sharing your thoughts, I appreciate your insight.

Bless you sister, and pray for the body of Christ. We all desperately need prayer.

Sorry I don't mean to be any kind of "blog hog" and It would be nice to see others chime in on your blog> I pray they will

One more thing if you don't mind:

We have No fear because we think we don't NEED God. We think we have need for nothing. God desires us to need him just like we long to be needed. What's the point in investing our whole lives to the cause of Christ and not truly need Him. Unbelievers will know if we are genuine or not. They know who really cares and who just wants to win an argument or just play church. Besides what good is it to preach, teach, live good pious lives without love--we're just a clanging cymbal


Lyn, the other day I realized why GOD allows us to be so poor and lowly and among the oppressed-in our taking up the cross. It is the ONLY WAY to see our need for the Lord and His word and we learn from HIM(the lowly Jesus) HOW to treat all things and people in our lives as (a privilege) from God rather than (an obligation). His greatest works in his children will be internal not external in our lives

Great video. I believe I've seen it before but it's always worth watching again.
