WIMPY CHRISTIANS ... REALLY?
Greetings, in the name of Jesus. Last Friday, I challenged a sister to a month of "prayer for workplace protection and no complaining". She told me that she already know that she cannot do this because she is just sinful by nature. Oh, how my blood pressure raised when she made the comment. I had to go in prayer to bite my tongue and I also prayed for her because obviously she has lost hope in Christ. The sad thing though, she is not the only one these days that are giving up or have given up on Christ. I would venture to say that there are a lot of people professing to be believers and followers of Jesus Christ, yet living in despair because they choose to not rely on the promises of Christ. Friends, 1 Peter 2:24 reminds us that, "Who His own self bare our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed." (KJV) Hallelujah. By Jesus' stripes, we are healed, yet, we choose to discount Christ.
