Do you know what I just read, and it is so true.<quoted text>
Hello LTM my good friend
....by grace, through faith been saved. It is a gift.
Thus by grace one is saved. It does not say by faith alone. If God's Grace provides for it, then one may be saved....If God's Grace then allows man to bind or loose one to the Body of Christ through religous means, the either accept this ability or not....Each has been given a gift.
GOD DOES NOT CALL THE QUALIFIED,
GOD QUALIFIES THE CALLED.
Don't you believe if God calls us,do you not believe He calls us into ministery for Him.
If this is so which I believe it is, God will give us what we need to do what he called us to do.
Eph 2:10 for we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus, for good works which God had prepared beforehand.
That we should walk in them. God gives us spiritual gifts, God being the Holy Spirit, we must walk in the spirit not in the flesh.
Which means we have to start think, outside the box of human thinking. The more you see God working in your life and in the lives of believers, its like breathing.
when you say I can't God says I can. Its having faith trust God for everything and all things. We can't go with feelings, or assume things. In our minds we think this makes sense so it must be, "NO" God's ways are not our ways and His thoughts are not His thoughts. We got to trust what Gods says,'AND HOW DO WE KNOW WHAT GOD SAID.' by reading His Holy WORD. GODS WORD IS BINDING, ITS TRUTH AND IT SOOTHES THE SOUL. PEOPLE CAN'T TEACH YOU THAT ROB, THEY CAN'T, THE HOLY SPIRIT DOES HE LAYS THE WORD (SEED) IN YOUR HEART THEN STARTS TO CULIVATE IT.
