R U a Noun or Verb Christian?

What is your faith like...is it a noun, a thing, or a verb, something in action to which others might point and remark there is something "different" about you.

 

This is not an academic exercise. There is nothing that Jesus preached or His apostles wrote about faith and following Christ that is not verb-oriented. Yes, faith itself is a noun, but as James says, faith without works is dead. Please do not read this to mean works = salvation. Scripture is very clear that salvation is by faith alone.

 

So, what do we mean by being a Verb Christian? Is it attending church or tithing or donating time and money to charity...or taking care of an elder relative? These are all good things we all should do, if presented with the opportunity. Church attendance by itself simply says the individual attends church -- it reveals nothing about their changed heart, their obedience to Christ's commands or their submission of their ego/themselves/stuff/TV/sport/business to God and to others (especially their spouse).

It has been some time since I have posted here. Can we reactivate our discussions here about glorifying God in the auto industry, with friends and associates - clients and cons. Lord, I ask that we who follow Jesus Christ will glorify you in our thoughts, actions, decisions, and words while we are away from family and familiar brothers and sisters in Christ and at NADA. Amen. I would love to meet and pray with/for anyone who is attending the show who might need a little lift, encouragement or want to regroup around His word. Ping me back for my cell if you'd like to do that while in N.O. Thanks!

Jesus said: "Put out into the deep water and lower your nets for a catch."  Simon said in reply: "Master, we have worked hard all night and have caught nothing, but at your command I will lower the nets."  They caught two boat loads of fish.  Simon said to Jesus: "Depart from me, Lord, for I am a sinful man." Jesus said: "Do not be afraid; from now on you will be catching men."  MT 5:11 concludes: "When they brought their boats to the shore, they left everything and followed him." 

Peter is the saint in the Gospels who is most like us, the closest to our humanity, and yet also very close to Christ.  We can always follow Peter.  He always leads us to Jesus, he unites us to Jesus, because he never permitted his own fragility to separate his heart from Christ, even when he denied Him...

We can and must enter the school of Simon Peter, the school of his journey with Jesus, in order to follow the Lord as he wants to be followed, to cling to Christ as he enables us to love Him.

Following our Lord is a constant, renewed "leaving everything." It is never finished and continually requires a fresh commitment, a new "everything" to be left behind once again.  This is how the love of Christ continues to live and grow in us.

How do you exhibit Scriptural teaching about submission (Col. 3 v. 18-19; Eph 5 v. 21-23 and 28-33; and foremost Matt 6:33) to each other in marriage? Can you share an example of this in action, to help us all understand what this command means in real life?

If our biggest pain stems from rejection imposed on us by a prospect who makes the choice to buy elsewhere we have it pretty good.  Imagine the rejection Jesus felt, especially in the final hour.  WOW!  Car professionals may find peace by keeping Romans 5:3-4 top of mind.  3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perserverance; perserverance, character; and character, hope.

I had to miss church today due to illness and this came from my pastors wife.  How lovely for all of us to be reminded of the gifts we are already enjoying from God.

But what happens when we live God’s way? He brings gifts into our lives, much the same way that fruit appears in an orchard—things like affection for others, exuberance about life, serenity. We develop a willingness to stick with things, a sense of compassion in the heart, and a conviction that a basic holiness permeates things and people. We find ourselves involved in loyal commitments, not needing to force our way in life, able to marshal and direct our energies wisely. Legalism is helpless in bringing this about; it only gets in the way. Among those who belong to Christ, everything connected with getting our own way and mindlessly responding to what everyone else calls necessities is killed off for good—crucified. Thank you Galatians 5
