Estava pensando o que seria isso de fato? Hoje em dia parece tudo mais difícil, porque você não pode falar do amor de Jesus porque você estará negligenciando a Justiça, não pode falar da Justiça por estará negligenciando o amor, então como pregar o evangelho ?
Eu noite algo essa noite que não notei a muito tempo, na minha pequena experiência sobre o assunto nunca precisei falar muito porque minha vida falava por si, coisas que eu conseguia enfrentar por amor a Deus e o testemunho que tenho já era uma demonstração de amor e justiça de Deus, sempre me ajudou a evangelizar e só reforçava dizendo o quanto Deus é bom e nunca nos desampara, e sempre está lá para nos corrigir na hora necessária.
Acredito que cuspir o “evangelho” de “você vai para o inferno se não fizer isso é aquilo ou você pode e não pode fazer tal coisa” não vai trazer boa nova a ninguém. Acredito que apresentamos o amor de Deus, quando a pessoa se decide por seguir ela aprende sobre os princípios de Deus, não precisa cuspir e tentar enfiar quela a baixo tudo isso.
Posso estar errada, mas foi a conclusão que tive pesando sobre o assunto é achei interessante compartilhar.
Tudo não passa de “apresentar” , “decidir” e viver.

💜 This Week’s Theme: Hearing God’s Voice ✝️
(The passage is from the book of John 10:22-30 NIV)
Tumblr media
✨ “My Sheep Hear My Voice” ✨
22 Then came the Festival of Dedication at Jerusalem. It was winter,
23 and Jesus was in the temple courts walking in Solomon’s Colonnade.
24 The Jews who were there gathered around Him, saying, “How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Messiah, tell us plainly.”
25 Jesus answered, “I did tell you, but you do not believe. The works I do in My Father’s name testify about Me,
26 but you do not believe because you are not My sheep.
27 My sheep listen to My voice; I know them, and they follow Me,
28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of My hand.
29 My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all; no one can snatch them out of My Father’s hand.
30 I and the Father are one.”
✨ Devotional for the passage above (John 10:22-30 NIV)✨
“My Sheep Hear My Voice”
💜 You may not want to think of yourself as a sheep, but that is a term Jesus used to describe His children. His sheep are all those who have trusted Him as Savior and they are the ones for whom He laid down His life. Scripture says these sheep are identified by three characteristics: They know their Shepherd, hear His voice, and follow Him.
Our Shepherd knew us before the foundation of the world. He sought us when we were lost, calling us each by name into His flock. We responded in faith by following Jesus, and from that point onward, we have been growing in our knowledge of Him and in our ability to obey His voice.
Yet sometimes we are rebellious sheep who, because of self-centeredness, fail to heed (to hear) Christ’s Word. We begin to ignore His directions and choose to listen to competing voices that promise to give us what we want. As we go our own way, it becomes harder to hear Christ’s voice.
God humbled Himself, became a man, and lived among sinful, willful human “sheep.” He laid down His life for them so that all who believe in Him could enter into the fold and become part of His flock. And once they become His sheep, He does for them exactly what the shepherds long ago did. He feeds them, protects them from enemies, brings them back when they stray, strengthens the weak, and cares for the hurting.
When we have difficulty hearing the Lord, the best remedy is to surrender our personal desires and fix our attention on what God wants. Only then will we again be able to discern (to recognize) our Shepherd’s voice calling us back to Himself. Being one of Christ’s sheep is the most secure and comforting position possible. He knows each of us intimately and calls us by name, leading us every step of the way through this life. And when we are truly His, we can distinguish His voice from all the others and will follow Him in obedience. ✝️

There was a lot going on today! Praise and worship; The Lord's Supper; celebration of our graduate; and a look into the cornerstone of who we are as believers and as a church through 1 Corinthians chapter 1. It was an amazing morning of worship in song, in prayer, in fellowship, and in the Word. I pray that this engages you in worship also. Join us every Sunday in person or online at 10am.

You can’t be mean to people and also love Jesus.
You have to LOVE “mean” people LIKE Jesus.

Me: Mom may I wear this-
Mom: That's too inappropriate! We are pure and I don't want people to stare at you and think you're a sl**
Me: Well they can gouge their eyes out.
Mom; T.. they can h u h-
Me: Gouge. Their. Eyes. Out.
If you ever decided to go out in shorts and a crop top and you one day saw Jesus, you think he'd see you like an object? Like a wh***? Do you think he would think you were "asking for it"? That you wanted to be disrespected because of your clothing preferences?
No. If you ever go out and see a woman wearing such clothing, before you have a chance to downgrade her, think to yourself; "What would Jesus do?"
Like come on yall, Jesus literally treated a prostitute more humanely than most men treat women nowadays and yall want to use the bible to justify your patriarchy? Leave the poor Bible out of your bias views thanks.
