“it’s okay to feel fragile” …..but it’s more important to be broken before God

And being in Bethany at the house of Simon the leper, as He sat at the table, a woman came having an alabaster flask of very costly perfume. Then she broke the flask and poured it on Jesus as all who stood by questioning why?

Mark 14:3

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.
2cor 12:9

The end of the month is nearly here time for my book go into the publishers for some heavy editing before publication as you notice my grammar isn’t the best but still I “believe i get the message across well enough”

I left school without any qualifications because of dyslexia, this condition in the late 1970s wasn’t recognised clearly as a common issues with child development

As I got older I found a deep interest to research things that interested me , reading and learning about human development especially my own

Writing this book came very naturally to me, maybe because the subject matter has been a great concern to me over the years journeying with the lord , I didn’t quiet connect with religion , tradition or legalism , which I questioned a lot , although the love of God to me is a response not some form of legislation for mankind just to obey or follow , So canonising my views in context of the written scriptures to identifying evidence of Gods grace has been a God ordained journey for me, in context of the theology I’m writing from an “Arminian” view “free will and grace
In the book I explore grace from genesis to revelation, the hidden silver lining in the word of God that seems to be over shadowed by the law but “my mentor” the apostle Paul make references to life before the law understanding the wonders of Gods grace & faith as the foundation of faith in Christ
When faith is weak there is only one reason why, the foundations hasn’t been laid as it should be
This is the intent and effects of grace in our lives, laying a foundation that
brings everything into Gods perfect will

I would love to hear your views on Grace and the context you give to it in your own lives

I use to think about grace in relation to human weakness but I discovered it’s bigger than that, Rom 5:3 grace help’s us to stand not just save us when we fall.
Heb 12:28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear.

“Can I question my belief”

20120522-092623.jpg

So will my belief if I don’t question it

Belief is a universal term that contains so much thought and personal conviction that when discussing the matter I believe that we should handle it lightly because we might be wrong
faith is different from belief ,how? first of all the objective of belief is hope, wile the substance of faith is about the “now experience” which is knowing

You maybe still thinking so what’s the difference? ,I’m tell you a lot!

Adolf hitler believed in ethnic cleansing the idea that immigrant were the reason to the down turn of the German economy, who sold the idea to the same people desperately in need for hope, to establish an Aryan race that would rule the world through his reign, that was unethical and morally wrong but “that was his belief”

Second point: faith is trusting in someone or something greater than ourselves
Faith in your own abilities is not faith that’s (belief)

Remember I said” I must hold my beliefs lightly because I might be wrong
The beauty of faith is it’s based on understanding , if we can ask questions with the expectation of receiving some feedback is that not faith?

Hebrews 11:3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God’s command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.

On the other hand belief isn’t a response it’s just a statement an idea that reduces our faith to just accepting the fact without questioning
I came to faith when I questioned my belief I admitted I was wrong
and “Jesus made the difference” because it wasn’t just a statement it now became a relationships.
Doesn’t that consist of asking questions?

If you can’t question your belief you are being indoctrinated and will miss out on faith experiences that will transform your life
Not even Jesus told the disciples what to believe , from a cultural stand point they know the prophetic scripture the tradition past down from their fathers The disciple at the time realised it was about the embodiment of what was Written before their eyes in the flesh

1John1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched–this we proclaim concerning the Word of life.

Peter’s Faith about jesus, was a revelation from God!

Mat 16:13 When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?”
Mat 16:14 They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”
Mat 16:15 “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?”
Mat 16:16 Simon Peter answered, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
Mat 16:17 Jesus replied, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven.

Don’t be indoctrinated, just question everything!

“fragrance”

Can you smell it?

Touching heaven but “living on earth”

20120522-210246.jpg

Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. Eph 5:1,2

“The world is your’s”

But can you handle it?

When everything seem to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it .
