“Let the redeemed of the Lord say so.” What a great honor to be invited to speak for God!
I believe that the Bible teaches that Christians are to gather together and learn how to minister in the Spirit, to one another. Then they are to go into the world and preach the Gospel in their daily lives.
Go tell it on the mountain (letting it flow from your heart like a fountain) what Jesus Christ has done! People learn to testify about Jesus by talking from their heart; not by listening to sermons.
It’s much harder to walk a preacher’s talk than to walk your own talk. Speak up for Jesus!
Sermon-hearing is fine, but when you speak from your heart, your own words about Jesus, it’s much more powerful! Try it!
Preaching can introduce us to Christ, but it can’t train us to obey Him. That requires interaction with Christ in a Spirit-led environment. The early Christ-followers called that ekklesia.
Christians are to called to follow the living Jesus; not a preacher, a church, a denomination, or a religious organization. We are called to surrender our self-will and to live out the will of God on earth as it is in Heaven!
John the Baptist decreased so Christ could increase. Let’s get out of the way so the living Jesus can actively control of His body.
True Christ-followers share a supernatural unity in the Spirit that we often overlook.
We never know how bad we are until we’ve tried our very best to be really good! Thank God for mercy! If you’re lying, you’re not living in the real world. Why not let go of your cover-ups & live in reality?
