Are You A “Faith In God” Christian?
The cautious faith that never saws off a limb, never learns that unattached limbs find strange unaccountable ways of never falling. –Chuck Swindoll
What are you doing today? It would be an excellent deed if you showed respect and honor to God on this day of rest.
You should kick back, take about 30 minutes and enjoy a good sermon (:
Please listen to this Chuck Swindoll sermon. It’s a classic. I’ve listened to it at least 3 times since yesterday! Dr. Swindoll is an eloquent stateman for the things of God. In this sermon he tells three “perk up your ears and listen” stories:
1. A personal family story– Swindoll’s father and his brother discuss how to provide for a family on a quarter! (To quote, The Dad said, “Orville, I just don’t understand you.” Orville replies, “No, Dad, I don’t think you ever have.”)
2. A beloved Bible story of the trust the elderly (100+) Abraham, his only son and God’s request. (Genesis 22:1-18Please read this. Its interesting.)
3. An informative piece on the amazing protective Great Wall of China and how it parallels with an individual’s life.
His sermon is based on verses in Matthew 6:
33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.
Today’s Americans shamefully reject trust and faith in God. It is too easy to rely on our personal possessions. We have so much access to excess. And if we can’t afford things, credit cards and government assistance are available. If you live very conservative in material possessions others including fellow Christians around you will consider you weird.
