Christian Americans – 7 Verses Encouraging Boldness For Christ

The Christian voice in America, over the years, has turned into a whisper. It’s happening in two ways:

  1. Unbelievers are shouting louder than believers for their “constitutional right” to remove God from our beautiful country.
  2. Believers remain quiet.

The current trend of keeping God out of all things American, the unbeliever’s view of separation of church and state, is not the plan our founders had when they birthed America. Of the 56 signers the Declaration of Independence, nearly half (24) held seminary or Bible school degrees. Our leaders had full understanding of the the need for God in America. Back in the day, they shouted those beliefs through America’s founding documents.

7 Verses To Encourage Faith

God is good. Though we may not feel His presence at all times, at all times – His presence is with us.

Feeling His presence is often relative to the location of your walk with God. Do you believe you are close to Him, strolling side by side? Or are you watching from a distance, not understanding His magnificence as He interacts with others?

I encourage you not to remain afar from our LORD but instead boldly approach Him, as others have done, by increasing your faith in who He is. God is patient as He awaits you to grow your faith. As you do this He will warmly welcome you into His presence.

Do You Know God?

If you’re a Christian you’re answering, “Of course I know God.”

You’re thinking, “I go to church, usually. I donate money to charity…visit my elderly neighbor, and I’m not a drinker like my boss.”

Those traits are definitely all good things, but do you know God intimately, in a way to get you through a tough situation?

There’s a story I heard a long time ago that is relative to this topic:

Christians, Speak Louder For God!

As a Christian, are you waiting for God to change the shouting ways of the world? We know the morality of God is slowly being subdued: His word talked over, the definition of biblical marriage rewritten with lies, even truth defining man and woman is edited with society’s opinions.

God does not want Christians muffled by the shrieks of satan. We know God desires His word to be clearly heard in our country and all over the world. Jesus even instructed His believers to go forth and proclaim Him to “all nations”.

“Teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.”

Obituary of Jesus The Christ

Easter is the holiest of celebrated holidays to Christian believers. It is the resurrection of Jesus our savior—The One who was crucified then came back to life three days later. Resurrection is the core of Christianity.

Through Jesus’ resurrection mankind receives salvation—deliverance from sin. We come to understand this truth through Bible study, attention to biblical sermons, and heartfelt prayer. God’s word truly is a love letter for mankind to read and enjoy.

Creation Happened Because God Exists

Creation is from the great I AM. His existence is before the beginning. I AM is omnipresent, omnipotent, and omniscient forever.

Look around. Think logically. The environment, the galaxies … all too perfect in function and formation to be created by the mishap of an explosion. The earth in its glory of gravity and atmospheric conditions, with its tilt, rotates on its axis while revolving around the sun. Change its tilt or rotation, move closer to the sun or further away, and the earth’s atmospheric conditions, the seasons, darkness and light times, could force earth to be unrecognizable.

Such perfect precision can only come from One who is beyond our understanding of perfect and precise.

5 Bible Verses: There Is Peace With God

Peace. Some folks think peace is hard to come by, but as believers, we know different. We know a peace that transcends all understanding; a peace that is always there if one simply believes.

AMERICA – Praise The LORD!

God, the provider of all things, He alone is worthy to be praised!

Isaiah 12:4-6 In that day you will say: “Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done, and proclaim that his name is exalted. Sing to the LORD, for he has done glorious things; let this be known to all the world. Shout aloud and sing for joy, people of Zion, for great is the Holy One of Israel among you.”

Our creator and redeemer, God is glorious.

It was Jesus who proclaimed, as He entered Jerusalem the week before His crucifixion, if mankind doesn’t shout His praises then earth itself will:

How Big Does Faith Have To Be?

Last week I shared that some folks are afraid to call on Jesus because they believe He accuses and condemns. Bible verses were selected to explain why that idea is the total opposite of God’s truth. It’s satan who is our accuser and Jesus is the One who saves us.

This week I want to share how having faith in Jesus not only helps us grow closer to Him and receive Him as our savior, but faith also gives us power in the middle of a storm-faith helps us to overcome.

You Can Walk On Water—Just Like Jesus!

I can’t begin to image what it was like to be a disciple of Jesus in the flesh over two thousand years ago. To actually see Him preform unprecedented miracles, hear Him speak wondrous truth, or feel the touch of His tender hands as He humbly washed my feet—all while knowing those same hands raised three people from the dead. It must have been a mind blowing experience for The Twelve.

The divine story of Jesus waking on water is told three times in the Bible. That specific act went against all physical laws which the disciples naturally understood. Jesus was definitely breaking new territory right in front of them. And the good news for us is—Jesus gives His power to all believers so that we can walk on water, too!
