Gifts for today? | June 4, 2008

I have been a believer for 11 years.  Each year a little better understanding of what I believe.  Mix that in with seasons of doubt and confusion.  Add in people’s advice, interpretation, and teachings.  Which adds in a little more confusion.  One thing has help straighten that out.  Real, honest, serious devotion to knowing God, spending time with God, desiring to experience God more than 2 hours every Sunday.  What I have found is God is moving ALL THE TIME.  He has sent us The Holy Spirit to be our guide and counsel.  It is real.  What Jesus told us to do is real.  WARNING!!!  WARNING!!!!  Christians that don’t believe in ALL the bible please stop reading!!!!   Jesus said, “Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.  And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”  NIV Mark 16:16-18.  these are verses that have caused many Churches problems.  To me, it is hard to explain away.  Whoever (us christians, all of), signs will (not might), drive out demons (seriously, demons), speak in tounges (holy moly, that might seem silly), snakes and poison (we are protected), they will get well (not if we don’t touch them, meaning you have to act).  Point being-  If you don’t try to really get closer, find out for yourself, or deepen your relationship with God;  I believe you are 1. missing out on a personal encounter that is real and for today that can really change your life, and 2.  you will miss out on God’s true will for your life and how he plans on using you for his Kingdom.  Don’t waste another day floating around with no effort.  dig in, hold on.  Praise God.
