Stop Trying

 

Air Date: 3/25/21 - Today Pastor Nat reminds us that we start this life in a “world of debt” – a sin debt that we can never repay. The good news is that Jesus already paid it in full.  How will you respond?

Thank you for this message. I'm thankful that Jesus paid for my sins. I cannot ever repay Him for what He did for me. I just need to follow His teachings and tell others so they to can have eternal life

Eva, I pray that your struggles you are facing will soon pass and you do find strength in God's love. Remember "you will experience trials and tribulations, but do not fear for I (God) have conquered the world". May you find peace as you read this. 💕🙏😇

Without Jesus we have nothing, yes I said nothing! We are to do all things with The Love of Jesus Christ. To has he did, he does daily alive within each of we His Children. Remember when Jesus wakes us up His Mercy's and Grace are made New! I have never followed "religion" for their is but one "being a Christian" which means to accept Jesus Christ as our, your Salvation within your heart. There in building upon that relationship with Jesus not "religion". Yes many will say Jesus was Jewish that is correct but Jesus Christ, Christ meaning "Christian" is the only way to be. Again never following any religion though my Dad was Catholic, then become a Batized preacher. He told me that religion is man made, that "Christ" is God made! Meaning what I stated above. To truly Love another Love must being and end in Jesus Christ.

Remember all that we do again must be done with The Love of Jesus. For we are to become more like Jesus and less like us. Amen.

Carolyn looks like you and I agree. As well Carolyn, Pastor Nat and to my other brothers and sisters who prayed and are praying for Jimmy Thank you each from my heart I do. He at a young 47 is going to have a pace maker put in or at this point that's what the Dr's are telling us. No matter what comes I know that the battle belongs to God! I Trust that his Will be done. We all hurt when we see our Love ones hurting but knowing that Jesus is alive within him/us that pain I gave surrendered to Jesus. Knowing what ever happens He will not fail me/us. Thank You again for your prayer support and Love in Christ. We must remember when our family is hurting we must stop and pray for them. With Love through Jesus Christ again I Thank You.

Pastor Nat and Carolyn Thank You again. Yes I am strong in my relationship with Jesus yet I find myself questioning which I should not do. For I know the battle belongs to God! Trying with The Love of Jesus to Uplift our family and his children. To see their pain and then feel just aches my heart but then I remember to breath and rest at Jesus feet. Through the pain, storms, trials, chaos I'll keep breathing Trusting for each of us. Please continue to pray for the family as I can feel their doubt. My Faith is strong enough to hold them up because I know Jesus is right their beside them alive within them. I'm there to remind them to Live and not just be alive, that Jesus said come to I will give you rest. Thank You Carolyn indeed it did Bless me with Peace which I need to stay strong for them. Through Christ who gives me strength I will Rise and remind them Christ is The Joy of our Strength even in these hard times.

Thank You both again there's no Power like The Power of Jesus! Even when I stumble He lifts me to remind me to keep going to Uplift the family reminding them there's nothing that Our God can not do. Just look up and feel His power poor into us. Yes moments come when I feel I'm going to break so I walk off so they don't see it, look up and say not today devil we belong to Jesus Christ! One thing I do know there is power in Prayer. May God Bless You both and keep You Uplifting in Jesus Mighty name. Thank You doesn't seem enough but I am Thankful.

"Stop performing FOR God's love, yet perform FROM it." This will make all the difference in your actions...

Such a profound statement. It makes something so complex as (playing the religion game, so easy to understand)

We can still be super active in our church, volunteer... do nice things.. but rather than keeping score., we do it out of Love for God. Since he saved us with his grace.

And because we don't need to earn his love.. we can sleep a little more rather than checking off a bunch of devotionals and feeling guilty if one day we just couldn't do them all. I mean reading devotionals is supposed to help us grow closer to God, and not just be a duty.

I definitely struggle with this. Am I spending enough time in prayer? Am I even praying correctly???

Seriously it's crazy. But this one sentence is so profound... stop preforming FOR God's love, but FROM it.

I actually wrote something like this earlier today, thought it posted. I wanted to engender l to remember that sentence so I got back on to look.. and my post was gone.. so I quickly tried to get out my original thoughts again.. so I can review them later.

Now I'm going to rest in God's grace. Bless you all.

Carolyn, trust me, I'm with you! I constantly have to check my heart for my motives. I do perform from God's love, but can quickly do it for His love or the love of others. So hard.
