The greatest enemy you’ll ever fight is YOU. Yes, you… Well, the “old you”, the one that still hangs around even though you’ve made Jesus the Lord of your life. The real you, the New You is a new creation, born of God’s Spirit, with a hunger for righteousness, to do God’s will (2 Corinthians 5:17, 21). But you’re a three-part person: you are a spirit, you have a soul (your mind, will, and emotions) and you live in a body, your earth suit. (1 Thessalonians 5:23) Well, that “earth suit” has not been redeemed yet, we don’t yet have our “glorified body”, so it still has appetites after the things of the world, the lusts we were caught up in before we received Jesus and it remembers what it used to like to do! If you’ve renewed your mind to the Word of God, then your spirit and soul are strong to discipline that “un renewed flesh” but often it still kicks up and gets us into trouble! This is where fasting can help…
Merry Christmas Rock Family!
It is December and the Christmas season is upon us. It truly is the most wonderful time of the year as we remember and celebrate the coming of our Lord in the form of a baby.
This year has presented us with many challenges already and in the coming days and weeks, there may be new ones on the horizon. It looks like things have the potential to get pretty “bad” relatively soon for people who claim Christ as their king. Regardless of the timeline of the coming persecution, we’re promised that it is coming. How can we prepare for it? What should we do when it comes? How can we prepare our children if the full-blown persecution comes after our time on earth is over? Before we address these things realize that this is not something that we should fear. We are told that we should practice our faith and walk out the things that we believe. Jesus told us that whoever is faithful in little will be faithful with much and whoever is not faithful with little will not be faithful with much. If we can’t prepare to fight in these times we have less of a chance of properly living when Christians’ property and lives are being taken.
I don’t know about you, but sometimes I have the thought of, what can I give God? Think on that for a minute. He does so much for us and yet what can we give Him?
Join us for 10 days of fasting and praying for America!
September 19 - 28
Covid-19, fires in California, hurricanes on the East and Gulf Coasts, riots in the cities, racial tensions cranked up, culture wars dividing families, and the most tumultuous societal unrest in my life as we move toward the most scary and venomous election in our history…
You need God! You need the palpable presence of God that leaves you in awe of Him instead of in fear of the future.
So, true believers need to heed the call to humility and prayer.
