Seasoned Believers Come And Restore

Seasoned Believers restore fallen believers and remind them of God’s love. They also explain the importance of repentance to receive forgiveness. The Seasoned Believer is concerned about getting the fallen believer back into the fold. It is the responsibility of the spiritually mature to restore those who have fallen according to Galatians 6:1. It reads “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such a one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.

Seasoned Believers are wise and know that anyone can be tempted and overtaken in a fault. Seasoned Believers know that the Christian Journey is a battle and one must follow the straight and narrow road. Matthew 7:13 admonishes us to “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:”

Seasoned Believers Expose Sin And Enlighten About Its Effects

When new converts begin living a victorious Christian life, sometimes they are unaware of the struggles of their sin nature. Some Christians have become sick as a result of sin. According to James 5:14-16 it says “Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord: and the prayer of faith shall save him that is sick, and the Lord shall raise him up: and if he have committed sins, it shall be forgiven him. Confess therefore your sins one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The supplication of a righteous man availeth much in its working.”

     Seasoned Believers exhort us to repent of sin and get back on track with God. In I John 1:9-10 it says “If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.”

Do You Immediately Repent And Ask God To Forgive You When You Sin?

Do you take ownership for your sins and mistakes?

When we take ownership of our sins it challenges us to evaluate our lives, our relationship with God and others. When we recognize we have sinned we need to be honest about the seriousness of our transgressions. We also need to correct the situation whenever possible. Turning away from the sins we have committed keeps us from further judgment. It also will save our very souls. Being honest about our sins and failures will help us to become more like Christ. This also helps us to work on our relationship with God.

     In our relationship with God we need to make sure we are in constant fellowship with Him. We should not have any other gods before Him because He is a jealous God. (Exodus 20:3-5) We need to make sure we are studying and doing what is in His word. If we are doing anything in our personal or business lives that is wrong, we need to get it right before God has to address it.

     Our relationships with others also need evaluation because God made every man in His image. God cares about the next person as much as He cares about us individually. We need to make sure that if we have sinned against someone or offended them that we get it right with them and God.

Did You Know There Are 4 Areas Where Satan Tricks Mankind?

Satan’s schemes come when we are weak, vulnerable and sick.  He deceives us when we are inexperienced, naïve and young.  He tricks us when we are in need, lack and want.  He plots our demise when we are faced with life changing decisions.

     Believers at one time or another have been weak and vulnerable because of an incident that has taken place in their lives. The incident may have been the loss of a loved one, divorce, an accident, or illness. These things can leave us prey to Satan. Our adversary, the devil, walks around as a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour. (1 Peter 5:8)

     When we are weak, we can’t make the right decisions and we can easily be manipulated. When we are vulnerable to the enemy we need to stay in constant prayer and ask God to hide us and keep us safe from the enemy. (Psalms 61:1-4) We should also ask other prayer warriors to pray for us. This is important because sometimes we are too weak to pray for ourselves.

     Satan is also able to trick us when we are inexperienced in some areas of life. He also comes when we are young and naive. Satan knows what we do not have knowledge of and will entice us in areas where we are ignorant. Satan has been around longer than we have and knows every way to trick man.     

     When we are young, naive and inexperienced it is easy for Satan to trick us. We have not lived long enough to know Satan’s devices. It is good news to know that God has been around even longer than Satan. God knows Satan’s schemes, tricks and devices. Therefore, a young person who lacks wisdom should ask God who gives to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. (James 1:5) God has control over everything that concerns heaven and earth. His son Jesus is the author and finisher of our faith and Satan’s fate. (Hebrews 12:2; Revelation 20:10)

Did You Know That Forgiveness And Justice Work Together?

God forgives us and He also administers justice.

God has promised us forgiveness if we confess our sins to Him according to 1 John 1:9. He loves us unconditionally and wants the best for us. He showed this AGAPE love when He sent His son Jesus Christ to die for our sins. God wanted a sacrifice that would justify the penalty for sin. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.” (Romans 6:23)

     Even though God forgives us, we must recognize that He is also a God of justice. Justice according to the Random House College Dictionary is the administering of deserved punishment or reward. Because God is just, He will administer punishment or reward to anyone when necessary. He also has the absolute authority to administer this justice how He deems necessary. God knows what degree of punishment and reward each of us need. We can count on God to punish us when we sin and go astray. He will also reward or recompense us when we suffer a wrong done to us. Therefore, forgiveness and justice go hand in hand.

Walk In TRUTH Everyday!

Did you know that you are responsible for walking in truth? You must walk in truth everyday before God, in your home, in your church, on your job and in your community.

     We should walk in truth daily and not just on Sunday. During the week it is important that we walk in truth on our jobs. We should remember we work with Christians and non-Christians. It is important for our co-workers and our bosses to see Christ in us. We show Christ in our attitudes, our work habits, what we say and what we do. We should stand out as an example to others. Ephesians 6:5-9 explains how employees should work as unto the Lord and be obedient to their employers. It also explains how employers should treat their employees and not threaten them.

     Our community is also important as we continue to walk in truth. We need to be mindful when we are out in public. Our actions and what we say should be in line with God’s word. We should deal honestly in every business transaction. Whether we are doing business at the grocery store, bank, or department store we need to have integrity. We must make a difference in our communities at the voting poll, in community organizations, and with the kids in our community. It is our responsibility to care about what happens in our communities and stand up for what is right. We should also love one another. If we do this we are showing the world and our communities that we belong to Christ. (John 13:35)

Do You Know Your Purpose?

Do you know why God created you? Pray and ask God. He will reveal it to you.

All of us have a purpose for which God created us. Our job is to ask God what that purpose is so we can fulfill it before we leave this earth. Jeremiah is a prime example that God has a purpose for our lives. God spoke to Jeremiah saying “Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou cameth forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.” (Jeremiah 1:5) Jeremiah knew what his purpose in life was by talking to God. Even when we know our purpose, we still need to seek God for direction on how to fulfill it.

     The only WILL that will be established and last throughout eternity is God’s WILL. He will not bless, support financially, keep together or stand behind anything that is not HIS WILL for our lives. “And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us: And if we know that he hear us, whatsoever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we desired of him.” (1 John 5:14-15)

     From the cradle to the grave, life is a journey that every man has to take. It will consist of the choices we make which contribute to our life experiences, victories and defeats. The journey will also be smooth and sometimes rocky depending on our obedience and disobedience to the word of God. We have to remember that this journey is all about fulfilling the plan which God preordained for our lives.
