I AM AN 80 YEAR OLD MALE, BORN AGAIN, CHRISTIAN WITH A LOVE FOR JESUS. I DO NOT GET OUT MUCH ANYMORE BUT FIND THAT TELLING PEOPLE ABOUT THE LOVE JESUS HAS FOR THEM IS NOT ONLY WHAT WE ARE SUPPOSED TO DO BUT SOMETHING THAT THE WORLD NEEDS.

"LIVING A CHRISTIAN LIFE" BY DAVID MCMILLEN
LIVING A CHRISTIAN LIFE
DO YOU THINK IT IS HARD TO LIVE A CHRISTIAN LIFE? IT IS IF YOU ARE NOT GIVING ENOUGH ATTENTION TO JESUS. I KNOW THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS OUT THERE THAT CAN TEMPT US BUT WE MUST BE CAREFUL. SOME PEOPLE SAY THAT WE CHRISTIANS DON'T HAVE FUN. THAT IS NOT TRUE. I HAVE MORE FUN AT A GOOD BIBLE STUDY CLASS THAN I EVER DID AT A POKER GAME AND I HAVE MORE FUN IN CHURCH THAN I EVER DID SITTING IN A BAR DRINKING. IT IS WHERE YOU CHOOSE TO BE.
LIFE IS WHAT WE MAKE IT. LET PEOPLE KNOW YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN BUT BE SURE YOU ACT LIKE ONE. I AM PROUD OF MY LOVE FOR JESUS. I WAS IN SALES MOST OF MY LIFE AND AT FIRST, WHEN I WOULD TALK ABOUT JESUS, PEOPLE WOULD PRETTY MUCH LEAVE ME ALONE. THE MORE I WOULD MENTION JESUS, JUST IN CONVERSATION, THE MORE AT EASE PEOPLE BECAME AROUND ME. THEY KNEW WHERE I STOOD AND IT GOT TO WHERE IF SOMEONE WAS HAVING A PROBLEM, THEY WOULD ASK ME TO PRAY FOR THEM. I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE WHO SAY, "OH YES, I WILL PRAY FOR YOU", AND THEN FORGET ABOUT IT. I WOULD PRAY FOR THEM RIGHT THERE IN THEIR SHOP, THEIR STORE OR WHEREVER WE WERE. PEOPLE WANT WHAT WE HAVE BUT THEY JUST DON'T KNOW HOW TO GET IT. IT IS OUR JOB TO TELL THEM.
TEMPTATION IS A HARD THING TO OVERCOME. HEBREWS 4:15 SAYS THAT JESUS "was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." THE SAME SPIRIT THAT IS IN JESUS IS IN US AND GOD GAVE US A FREE WILL TO DO RIGHT OR WRONG. AND, DON'T EVER SAY THAT GOD IS TEMPTING YOU TO SHOW SOMETHING TO YOU OR TO SEE IF YOU WOULD DO THE RIGHT THING OR NOT. JAMES 1:13 SAYS "Let no man say when he is tempted , I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:" YOU CAN'T BE TEMPTED BY SOMETHING YOU DON'T THINK ABOUT BECAUSE SIN STARTS IN THE MIND.
JUST KEEP OUR MINDS FOCUSED ON JESUS. HE IS ASKING US TO LET HIM LIVE IN US. GALATIANS 2:20 SAYS "I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me." IT IS HARD TO SIN WHEN YOU ARE EITHER IN CHURCH, READING YOUR BIBLE, PRAYING FOR SOMEONE OR JUST TALKING TO JESUS. IT IS ALL WHERE YOUR FOCUS IS. WE ALL NEED TO GET SO CLOSE TO JESUS AND SO TUNED INTO HIM THAT WE EVEN DREAM ABOUT HIM. NOW THAT IS A GOOD NIGHT.
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
