Clouds drifted in the blue sky, while some birds were alighting in a tree near the meeting place, chirping like playing a vivid song. In the meeting place of a house church, preacher Li Xun invited her classmate Yang Min (a co-worker works in another area) to attend the co-worker meeting, and they were talking about the topic of “being saved” and “entering into the kingdom of heaven”…
I have been engaged in teaching for more than 20 years. In my students’ eyes, I’m a good teacher who is either strict or conscientious and responsible. In the past, I taught in a primary school all the time. Afterward I was transferred to a middle school to do support services, being in charge of the student dormitories. The middle school students were not so obedient as the pupils, and they even more had their own ideas. Moreover, the present students were willful and they wouldn’t like to listen to what the teachers said. Therefore, it was not easy for me to do this job. Sometimes, when the students didn’t listen to me, I lost my temper. I really didn’t have any idea how to make a good job of taking charge of student dormitories.
Though Jesus did much work among man, He only completed the redemption of all mankind and became man’s sin offering, and did not rid man of all his corrupt disposition. Fully saving man from the influence of Satan not only required Jesus to take on the sins of man as the sin offering, but also required God to do greater work to completely rid man of his disposition, which has been corrupted by Satan. And so, after man was forgiven his sins, God has returned to flesh to lead man into the new age, and begun the work of chastisement and judgment, and this work has brought man into a higher realm. All those who submit under His dominion shall enjoy higher truth and receive greater blessings. They shall truly live in the light, and shall gain the truth, the way, and the life.
I have heard such a story: The course of eagles’ growth is cruel. In order for the eaglets to hover in the sky, the mother eagle will push them over the cliff when their feathers are full. While they are falling, eaglets exhaust all their strength to flutter to survive. Through struggling painfully, finally they can fly. However, for the sake of letting them soar in the high sky, the mother eagle will break their wings and push them over the cliff again. This time, they will suffer more pain than before. Yet no matter how painful they are, they still have to flutter their broken wings. Because only by doing this can they hover in the high sky; otherwise, they will never be able to fly in the blue sky.
Today I watched this Kids Dance Christian Music Video with my daughter again. She also dances with it. Those who sincerely love God are all honest people. I hope that she will be this kind of Christian in the future. God is trustworthy, He only wants honest people for His Kingdom. And that’s why God wants us to be honest people. This reminds me of myself experience. After Being Honest …
I believe that many people must be familiar with the story about the woman of Samaria: When drawing water, the Samaritan woman ran into the Lordwho asked water of her. She then recognized that He was the coming Messiah in prophecy during their dialogue.
🌀 Just as many brothers and sisters in the Lord✝, I also often ask: I attend the worship in the church every week, and I often read the Bible and expend and work for the Lord. But I live in a circle of committing and confessing sins. If I go on like this, will the Lord Jesus truly forgive me? How will Him treat a sinner?
Before a brother said to me, “Do you even have to ask this? The Lord is merciful and loving. No matter how serious sins we commit, the Lord will always forgive and absolve us. And at last the Lord second coming will bring us into the kingdom of heaven. Then we’ll be with the Lord in the paradise.” In the past, I thought in the same way. Because of this viewpoint, I didn’t pay attention to my sins, and even indulged myself and gave free rein to the spread of sin. But later, I got some light after I heard a sermon by a preacher. Here I share his sermon with you.
The Lord Jesus said, “Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand” (Matthew 4:17). From the Lord’s words we know that to enter into God’s kingdom, we must confess and repent to Him. But what is true repentance? Dear brothers and sisters, the following article will explain it to us and help us find the right way of practice. I have benefited from it😊
