Good #focusfriday morning!! I have lived a fairly sheltered life. Most of my years growing up my friends and family members all attended church. We came from similar backgrounds and it was difficult for me to imagine anything different. I remember being a senior in high school having a conversation with someone who said they were agnostic. I had no idea what this meant. The person went on to explain they neither believed or disbelieved in God, but rather was indifferent to His exisitance. This BLEW MY MIND yall! I was so confused I didn't know what to say. Looking back, I know I missed a chance to share the Gospel.
James 2:19 King James Version (KJV)
19 Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.
Even the demons believe in God. Are we merely believers or do we have a personal relationship with Jesus? Are we followers of Christ? Or do we follow obligations?
There is a BIG difference in believing in Him and having a relationship with Him, making Him Lord of your life. Like all relationships we must focus on maintaining it. Now, He will never leave or forsake you. However, we often put Him on the back burner. We must focus on keeping Him first and being like Him. We must have an actual relationship with Jesus rather than only believing.
We Jesus disciples, are grafted into Isreal by God(Romans 11). We are inheritors of these blessings of Abraham...
So, raise your expectation- banish fear!💪.
Enjoy the weekend and see you on Monday!

Já ouviram falar do livro O Peregrino - A Viagem do Cristão à cidade Celestial escrito pelo pastor batista John Bunyan?
O meu está com as folhas amarelinhas mas tenho ele guardado no coração, um TESOURO inestimável!
Alguém por aí já leu ele? Se leu conte para nós o que achou desse #clássico . Se não leu venha comigo:
Bunyan relata, no prefácio e no posfácio, que escreveu O Peregrino como uma forma de alerta aos perigos e vicissitudes enfrentados na vida religiosa por aqueles que seguem os ensinamentos bíblicos e buscam um caminho de perfeição para alcançar a coroa da Vida Eterna. O Peregrino tenciona levar o leitor a refletir sobre como deve ser vigilante na vida terrena, simbolizada pela jornada de Cristão.
Desde sua publicação, o livro jamais deixou de ser impresso. Depois da Bíblia, este é o livro mais conhecido no meio cristão não somente de fala inglesa, mas de diversas línguas, inclusive na China, onde, clandestinamente, chegou-se a produzir 200 mil cópias que foram distribuídas em 3 dias.
Neste livro, o jovem peregrino chamado simplesmente Cristão, atormentado pelo desejo de se ver livre do fardo pesado que carrega nas costas, segue sua jornada por um caminho estreito, indicado por um homem chamado Evangelista, pelo qual se pode alcançar a Cidade Celestial. Na narrativa, todas as personagens e lugares que o peregrino depara levam nomes de estereótipos (como: Hipocrisia, Boa-Vontade, Sr. Intérprete, gigante Desespero, A Cidade da Destruição, O Castelo das Dúvidas, etc.) consoante os seus estilos, características e personalidades.

Our wedding rings. Not everyone gets to put one on. Not everyone wants to. Those that do, know from what they’ve seen around them that they’re walking into a battle zone. They’ve heard the horror stories, they’ve seen people’s battle scars, and know how much there is to lose. •
But among the dust and ashes there are some marriages that seem different. I have spent my married years watching these people carefully. Their marriage seems to be about something more than personal fulfillment, raising children, or pursuing financial gain. Their partnership changes the atmosphere of any room they walk into, and raises the standard. Their rings mean more than commitment, they represent something eternal that the gates of hell can’t prevail against. •
These people go into other people’s battle zones and help them win back territory. These are the champions! Lord, make us champions, wherever we’re planted. Infuse us with whatever that unbreakable “it” is. •
That’s the kind of marriage I want - one that goes from glory to glory, from battlefield to battlefield, sharing in the celebration of Heaven coming to earth, one battle at a time. .
