ARE WE AS COURAGEOUS AS WE THINK WE ARE?

Persecution in India: Francis’ Response from Cornerstone Church on Vimeo.

What a wake up call!

Thanks to Francis Chan for awakening us to our need for God more than man.

Are we as courageous as we think we are?

I think not.

And I’m asking the Lord for forgiveness.

I recently heard in a meeting I attended someone ask the question, “Whatever happened to people standing up for what they believe?”

And it struck me.

How many times have I hidden my love for Christ?

How many times have I cowered at the thought of saying Jesus’ name in the presence of unbelievers?

What do I have to be ashamed of?

No more.

I’m here to announce the new, authentic ME.

I love Jesus.

He is the Savior of the world!

I love Him. And I didn’t love him first. He first loved me!

Great news!

I pray you’ll ask the Lord into your heart today. I promise you, the Jesus these people in the video are dying for – HE IS REAL. HE IS ALIVE. HE WILL SAVE YOU FROM YOUR SINS.

You know what’s right and wrong.

You feel the guilt.

It’s God’s signal to you that you need Him.

He wired you to feel bad without Him.

That way you’ll CHOOSE HIM over your own desires.

Because, let’s face it. Our desires don’t satisfy us very long. They’re paper thin in reality. They have no substance.

It’s like drugs.

You have to do it over and over again. And each time you get pulled in deeper to the addiction that will never satisfy you.

But Jesus said he came to GIVE YOU REST.

Pray this with me:

“Lord I am a sinner. That doesn’t mean I’m a bad person. It just means I need you. I confess my sins and ask your forgiveness. Now invade my life in every place. Help me to see my need for you in every situation and every environment. Plant me in a family of believers who will keep me on the straight and narrow. I thank you for your forgiveness and I give my life to you!”

Welcome to salvation.

Read the bible. Feed your spirit and refuse to let the Devil to take your joy!

I love you.
