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.”

Finding A Worthy Mentor Is Serious Business!

You need someone who has your best interest. You also need someone you can trust. When new converts repent and turn away from a life of sin, accept Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior and decide to live according to God’s word, they will need mentoring, prayer and support on their new journey.

     It is important for new Christians to become a part of a local church where they can serve, learn about God’s word and grow to spiritual maturity. New Christians should have a network of Seasoned Believers who support, mentor and pray for them.
Studying the word of God is an ongoing responsibility for all Christians. According to 2 Timothy 2:15 the Bible says “Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth. In order for us to develop into spiritual maturity we must continue to read and study God’s word. We must know the Bible so we can apply it to our lives.

Did You Know That Everyone Has A Time And Season To Shine?

Everyone was born with a purpose. You don’t have to be jealous or envious of anyone because God has appointed a time and season just for you.

According to Ecclesiastes 3, to everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven. When it is your season to build, start building. When it is time for God to tear down some things in your life then submit quickly to the process. Make sure you have a clear understanding of what God wants you to do while he is at work in you. When God finishes, you can say like Job “But he knoweth the way that I take: when he hath tried me, I shall come forth as gold.” (Job 23:10)

     For everyone who reads this book, I want you to know that I am praying that you reach your DESTINY and be fulfilled. My prayer is also that your journey will be exciting. Make sure you take time to learn the lessons that God wants to teach you. Be encouraged when things do not turn out the way you had planned or anticipated. Remember that we are here to fulfill God’s plan and not our own. It is only GOD’S WILL that will happen. Ask God to help you find your purpose in life and to help you fulfill it.

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.

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.

Can You Pass The DELAY TEST?

Do You Trust God? Do You Need Patience?

During the times we are delayed through trials and tribulations, our own disobedience, or a trap from Satan, we should humble ourselves. According to 1 Peter 5:6-7, we are to humble ourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt us in due time. Casting all our cares upon him; for he careth for us. Whatever the purpose God has for the trial, we should ask Him to help and instruct us through it. We should also seek an understanding from God for the trial according to Proverbs 3:5-6. We must trust in the Lord with all our heart and lean not unto our own understanding. In all our ways we should acknowledge Him and He shall direct our paths. When we seek God’s understanding for the trial we will learn the lesson in it.

     Many times people become frustrated when they are delayed. They get angry when they can’t make progress in their lives. They feel God’s principles are too hard so they create their own method to achieve their goals. Many create their own way even if it is wrong, illegal, and ungodly. They also create methods without boundaries and constraints. Anything goes when the absolute standard has been forsaken. Instead of seeking God for help to obey His principles they become upset and frustrated with God. God’s principles require discipline and obedience. Many times people are unwilling to give what it takes to be disciplined or obedient. The more we become disciplined in a specific area of our lives the easier it will become to be obedient in that same area.

Selfishness Stops the Flow of Blessings

Did you know that selfishness stops the flow of blessing to you and others? Selfishness according to The Random House College Dictionary means devoted to or caring only for oneself; concerned only with one’s own interests. Imagine if we lived in a world where everyone practiced selfishness. Imagine if no one cared for another human being and people only looked out for themselves. The Planet Earth would truly be a cold place to live.

     Unselfishness allows God to work through people. God is able to answer someone’s prayer because of the obedience of another. When you are selfish it stops the flow of blessings to you and others. It stops the blessing to others because God is unable to meet someone’s need through you. Your selfishness also keeps you from sowing a seed into someone’s life which prevents you from a blessing.

     Sowing and reaping is a natural and spiritual law. Farmers use the sowing and reaping principle when they sow seed into the ground and reap a harvest. If the farmer does not plant seed, he cannot expect to get a harvest. It is just that simple. The sowing and reaping principle works the same way in the spiritual.

     According to the Bible in Galatians 6:7, it says “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Natural and spiritual laws automatically come to pass whether we want them to or not. When sowing either in the natural or spiritual, make sure what you sow will produce a harvest you want to reap.

A Truthful Evaluation of Yourself Gives Feedback for Growth and Success

Did you know you were fearfully and wonderfully made by God? (Psalm 139:14) You were created in His image. (Genesis 1:26) You are more than a conqueror. (Romans 8:37) You can do all things through Christ who strengthens you. (Philippians 4:13) Knowing these truths gives you an absolute standard for your life. They are encouragement to your soul.

     When you know the truth about God and your existence, confusion is not an option. Be firm, truthful and sure about who you are and what you stand for. Don’t let the opinions and prejudices of others tell your story. You are unique, valuable and have a lot to offer. When you know the truth about yourself no one can easily offend or discourage you.

     A truthful evaluation of yourself is when you can admit your strengths and weaknesses. No one has to tell you where you are lacking. You know where you need to improve and where you excel. When you continue to truthfully evaluate yourself, you continue to grow and mature. When you mature in your weak areas, you begin to succeed where you previously failed.
