Are you a disciple of Jesus Christ?
Then it ought to show!
“Therefore be imitators of God as dear children." (Ephesians 5:1)
Definition of Disciple: denotes one who follows one’s teaching; a disciple was not only a pupil, but an adherent; hence they are spoken of as imitators of their teacher.
FORGETTING GOD—THE HOLY SPIRIT
Multitudes of Christians attend church services every Sunday yet know nothing about spiritual warfare, the Believer’s authority, spiritual weapons, or their responsibility to “go into all the world and make disciples, cast out demons, and heal the sick.”
Holy Spirit was never meant to be the Believer’s silent back-seat driver or watch silently on the sidelines as the corporate Body of Believers try to win the world to Jesus on their own puny efforts.
Not even our Savior ministered without the Holy Spirit! (Acts 10:38.)
Awakenings and revivals cannot break forth without God—the Holy Spirit!
The Church of 2017
Denominations that were once on fire with the fullness of God’s Spirit have let go of the power of God and even approve of sinful lifestyles contrary to God’s laws.
How can perversion be accepted in church?
Prayer and the study of God’s Word went to the end of the line as church pastors, leaders and congregations said in their hearts: HOLY SPIRIT NOT WELCOME HERE!
How can this happen?
One heart at a time.
This is that...which the Apostle Paul warns The Church against in the book of Hebrews.
“Therefore we must give the more earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we drift away.” (Hebrews 2:1)
