"Most of God's people are content to be saved from the hell that is without; they are not so anxious to be saved from the hell that is within." Robert Murray

How I battle every day with the sin within me... my shortcomings and my love for the things of the world!, How I need Jesus every day to help me and change me.. He saved me and will make me perfect one day, but as today, the battle within me is a never end battle which makes me hope and wish for Him to come soon!

But as Thomas Watson said, when sin is my burden, then Christ is my delight!

Face Book

I joined Face Book not long ago, and even though I love been in touch with old friends and it is nice to see that most of us still walk in the faith, also, it has been very shocking and at times, very sad to see how little reverence there is for God's Holy Name now a days, even among Christians. I was reading some posts on facebook of people that have been Christians for a long time. And as I read and look at their pages, makes me upset to see how much God's Name is basphemed. Very quickly His Name, is used as an expression. Or used in a joke (to make a point of something exagerated), others, have pictures of themselves which inspire nothing but lust.

Where has the fear of the Lord gone? Have we forgotten that God said "Do not misuse the name of the Lord your God, for He will not hold anyone guiltless who misuses His name" Do you not fear God's wrath? When you misuse His name, is like saying: I have NO fear of God's wrath over me. How foolish and irreverent the people that called themselves Christians have become! With fear of not being religious, have gone to the extreme of been profane with their words.

Where are the Christians of old, that people knew they were Christians, not because of the televangelists with bad reputations, or because the prosperity gospel preached everywhere, or because their kids had their rooms decorated as Noah's Ark (which that alone is worth a full post), but because their lives were HOLY because their God is holy!

Be careful with the way we speak, with the way we live our lives, what we say and what we do. We behave in a certain way, not so that we may go to heaven, but we behave in a certain way, because we are going to heaven!

The Sovereign Lord

I was thinking about God's sovereignty lately. About His irresistible Grace in saving us. How hard it is for some to understand this and accept a God that does what He pleases and owes us nothing. He saves us because of the pure pleasure of His will. Not because we want to be saved, or because we can choose God if we wanted, but because He alone, opened our eyes so that we might see and understand His Word and like the things that God likes.

Some say that is possible for a non beleiver to want Christ and for a Christian to leave Christ... HOW! It is just as impossible for a non Christian to want the Sovereign God, as for a true beleiver to leave his faith! I speak out of my own life. I know for certain, that even if I wanted, I couldn't leave Him, I can't stop loving Him!

It was His grace that drew me to him since I was a little girl. It was Him who gave me faith to beleive in Him. It was His hand that rescued me when I sinned and gave me the privilege of understanding undeserved forgiveness. Everything that I leaned on has been removed from my life, so that I learn to lean only on Him. It was He, who has taught me to depend on Him alone.

How can I not owe Him my life!, How can I possibly turn my back on Him? IMPOSSIBLE!. It is He who sustains me, who helps me to persevere, who gives me a love for Him when I feel I am going through a desert... somehow,every time, I am reminded of His love for me.

He who has given me grace every time I am weak, He who has given me the biggest proof of love anyone can give, He who gave me life when I deserved death... How can I walk away from Him? IMPOSSIBLE!.. I simply CAN'T.

He has kept me in His way since young, Would He turn away from me one day? Would He be distracted when I am going the wrong path and be lost? Would the world be more persuasive than the Lord who saved me? Would He allow to lose something that belongs to Him? IMPOSSIBLE!

I am bought with His blood because of love. He covered me with robes of righteousness, He cleansed me and He works in me still.

"Christ did not die for any upon condition, if they do believe; but He died for all God's elect, that they should believe." JOHN OWEN

Phil. 3 :7 (My favorite one!)

"But whatever was to my profit I now consider loss for the sake of Christ.

What is more, I consider everything a loss compared to the surpassing greatness of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things.

 I consider them rubbish, that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which is through faith in Christ—the righteousness that comes from God and is by faith.

 I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead."

This is one of my favorite verses in the Bible.. How I pray that I may lose everything in Him... that all in me cries out "I am nothing without You!" That He may be enough for me, that I may not seek my own righteousness but be completely lost in His. That my unbeleif will be torn away from me and that faith rule my life. I want to know Him... and I know Him so little. I want to desire Him above all things. And be a witness to my family first and then to the world!
