This is #100

This is my 100th post. I just want to use it to say thank you to everyone who has read, liked and commented on any one of my posts!

I have been more determined recently to be active and faithful in my posting. I enjoy writing and sharing my thoughts with you!

Over the past year or so I have been working on being a better writer and getting my thoughts to flow more clearly and I thank you for putting up with the mistakes and bad grammar sometimes!

Since this is my 100th post, I just want to share some of my favorite posts that I enjoyed writing.

Probably my favorite post that I have done is Why Do You Use, What You Use? I enjoyed writing about why I use the King James Bible from a common sense point of view. This post has been my most viewed post.

Words From My Father is the post that has the second most views and also one of my favorites. My father is one of the smartest men I know. He has gotten his masters and doctorate in theology. He is constantly reading and learning. I hope that one day, I can be like him!

Lastly, my third favorite is Compromising Christianity. I know I just wrote this just over a week ago but it made me look at my own life and see where I had compromised and turned back in my service for the Saviour.

Go check anyone of these out if you haven’t read them and let me know what you think!

Constant Christianity

Yesterday I talked about Compromising Christianity. Today I want to talk about Constant Christianity.

Constant: occurring continuously over a period of time, remaining the same over a period of time, (of a person) unchangingly faithful and dependable.

When I think of constant, I think of faithful. The Bible tells us “Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.” I Corinthians 4:2 We need to be constant Christians, we need to be faithful Christians. God is looking for a constant Christian, the world is also looking to see who isn’t being a constant Christian.

Too many Christians try to play on both sides of the fence when it comes to Christianity. We will do it God’s way on Sunday and than the rest of the week we will live like the world, talk like the world and act like the world. That type of Christian life is no where close to being constant, to being a faithful Christian.

Do people know that you are a Christian when you are away from church? Do your co-workers know that you are a Christian? Do your neighbors know that you are a Christian? We should live such a constant, consistent Christian life that the people around us and that we associate with on a daily basis should know that there is something different about us. Different in that we don’t act like the world, talk like the world, or even live like the world.

Be constant in your Christian life!

Did You Stop Looking?

This past Sunday morning I heard a really good message about working for Christ. It confirmed everything that God had been convicting me for the last few weeks. The text verse used was “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest.” Ecclesiastes 9:10 

I know the preacher mentioned something along the lines of finding work to do for Christ and as soon as he said that, my mind and my heart started looking at my life and the work I am currently and have done for Christ. I was convicted!

I got to a point last year where I let some things go in my service to Christ. I stepped out of a few ministries, missed way to many church services and overall I started backsliding. My attitude was wrong, I became very self-centered. I just wasn’t being a good Christian, a good servant of Jesus Christ.

As I listened to the message Sunday morning, I realized I had stopped looking for work to do for Christ. God used that word “findeth” for a reason. Yes, He gives us commands of what we should do like attend church, tithe, go soulwinning, have a walk with Him…we shouldn’t have to look for these things, we should just do them. God wants us to find something to do, find a ministry to serve in, find a Sunday school class to teach, find people to minister to. I had stopped looking to serve, I had stopped trying to help others. I realized Sunday that I needed to start back into doing something more than just attending church, I needed to find a ministry to serve.

Hey Christian, have you stopped looking for ways to serve Christ? The Bible tells us that “Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might…” The word “findeth” in this verse tells us that we have to look. You have to look for ways to serve Christ! The bus ministry is a great way to serve (which I am getting back into), being a Sunday School teacher, these and many more are great ways to serve! Once you FIND something to do, do it with all your might! Put your heart and mind and soul into doing the best you can to serve the Lord by serving others!

Ask yourself today, “Did I stop looking?”

If the answer is “Yes,” than find something to do for Christ!
