  • Child of God

    Child of God

    What are the 7 key characteristics of a child of God? Honesty, Integrity, Responsibility, Discipline, Spiritual Growth, and more. From the book, “Follow The Jesus Way” by Luis Joseph Castle. Visit our website for more encouraging messages: http://www.4JesusOutreach.com

    1. HONESTY – Your word should be fact. Tell the truth even when it hurts.

    “People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy.” – Proverbs 28:13

    1. INTEGRITY – Live your values. Whether no one knows or everyone is watching. Do everything unto the LORD.

    “Whatever you find to do with your hands, do it with all your might.” – Ecclesiastes 9:10

    1. RESPONSIBILITY – Deliver on commitments at the expense of leisure or fun.

    “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.” – Colossians 3:23

    1. DISCIPLINE – Do not be dissuaded by critics or opposition. Strive to master the art of spirit over flesh.

    “Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. I discipline my body like an athlete, training it to do what it should. Otherwise, I fear that after preaching to others I myself might be disqualified.” – 1 Corinthians 9:26-27

    1. GROWTH – Attend to your weaknesses and learn from your mistakes.

    ““I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5

    1. COURAGE – Face challenges with purpose. Fear God only.

    “When I am afraid, I will trust in thee. In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. ” – Psalms 56:3

    1. GRATITUDE – Count your blessings and in everything give God thanks.

    “Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.” – James 1:17

  • Was Goliath Really a Giant?

    Was Goliath Really a Giant?

    The phrase “David and Goliath” is a popular phrase denoting an underdog situation, a contest wherein a smaller, weaker opponent faces a much bigger, stronger adversary. But was Goliath really a giant man? The Bible says he was. In fact, he belonged to a race of giants that had six fingers and six toes. He is said to have been 9 feet, 9 inches tall. Giants were probably the mutant (unnatural) offspring of the fallen angels who had unlawful sexual relations with the daughters of men (See Genesis 6:4).

    You can read the entire narrative in 1 Samuel 17.

    SYNOPSIS OF DAVID AND GOLIATH

    • The Israelites and Philistines face each other; Goliath makes his challenge to single combat
    • David volunteers to fight Goliath
    • David selects five smooth stones from a creek-bed to be used in his sling
    • David defeats Goliath and cuts off Goliath’s head.
    • The Philistines flee the battlefield. The armies of Israel chase after them and defeat them in battle.
    • The name of Yahweh, Israel’s God, is designated as “all-powerful” and given the glory.

    We recommend you read the entire story in 1 Samuel 17 (https://biblehub.com/bsb/1_samuel/17.htm)

    This Bible passage will encourage you to allow your faith in God to triumph over any obstacles or “giants” you may be facing in your life. Our God is faithful to keep His promises and give His children victory in every circumstance.

  • All Things In Christ

    All Things In Christ

    I CAN DO ALL THINGS IN CHRIST

    When I was still a baby Christian, I struggled with many issues from the past. Some of these bad habits carried over into my new life in Christ. I hated myself for them, but the LORD gently reminded me that I was a work in progress; personal transformation takes time.

    One of these carry-over sins was my addiction to cigarettes. One day my Christian mother posted the following Bible promise on my wall: “I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.” – Philippians 4:13. She said, “Son, trust that Jesus can give you the power to quit smoking. Pray and ask Him to help you.” Shortly thereafter, I decided it was time to let cigarettes go. It was a smelly, dirty, and expensive habit. Most importantly, smoking was harmful to my body, which was the temple and habitation of God.

    I decided one day to quit “cold turkey.” No slowly cutting down, or nicotine patches for me. I threw my latest pack of marlboro’s away. The first 24 hours of withdrawal were the hardest. My body and mind screamed with agony! I was depriving my body of nicotine addiction – a drug-like substance – which I had ingested every day since I was sixteen years old. But I was determined to tough it out. I held on to my faith and constantly prayed for Christ to give me strength, and He did.

    As the days passed, it became easier to abstain. After two weeks of not smoking, I finally felt some relief. I praised and thanked Jesus for delivering me! It’s been over 30 years now since I have been tobacco-free.

    Today, if you’re struggling with any kind of addiction, remember to pray and ask Jesus Christ to set you free. Commit yourself to God’s promise of help and power, and say, “I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me.” – Philippians 4:13

  • Loneliness

    Loneliness

    Many people live their lives as though they don’t need anyone else; this is a big mistake. They think there is nothing of value to be found in others, particularly from those of a different racial or cultural background, or a different social or economic class. This ultimately leads to personal isolation, loneliness, depression, and despair. The truth is, we need each other!

    Today, our high-tech society makes the world an even lonelier place. But God doesn’t want us to live in perpetual loneliness. He wants us to embrace others around us. We must pray as the Psalmist, “Turn to me and be gracious to me, for I am lonely and afflicted” (Psalm 25:16). Our loving God will show us how to turn our loneliness into love for others. Start by changing your negative attitude. Do something as simple as writing a note, smiling at a passerby, or just visiting a friend.

    Most of all, don’t allow your loneliness to turn into bitterness and self-pity. Use your lonely feelings to push you toward someone, rather than away from others. The strength we need to overcome loneliness we will draw from loving our brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ, and testifying to a lost and hurting world.

    Remember, as you reach out to others in love, God will bless you for being a blessing to other lonely people.

  • The Dangers of Sexual Sin

    The Dangers of Sexual Sin

    Regarding sexual sin such as fornication, adultery, homosexuality, and lesbianism, these particular sins are most damaging to your relationship with Christ. It defiles our spirit and our bodies as well, which are the temple (or habitation) of God. Yet today, sexual sin is so rampantly practiced in our culture, even among so-called “Christians.” This is devastating to the individual, and the church of Jesus Christ who is called to be pure.

    Some use the excuse that “everybody is doing it,” and “it’s legal according to our civil government, therefore it must be okay.” Others claim that we should not “judge” others, lest we be judged.

    I get frustrated with the ignorance of people who use Matthew 7:1-5 “Do not judge” as a blanket excuse to avoid confronting habitual sexual sin in other people’s lives. That is not what Jesus was talking about. He was speaking of hypocritical judgment, that is, criticizing others for their small sins (specks) while overlooking our own (logs) in the eye. It is the sin of being preoccupied with the sins of others while ignoring your own (fault-finding).

    Righteous Judgment and the Rational Use of Logic

    Jesus taught us: “Do not judge by the outward appearance, but judge with RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT” – John 7:24

    Jesus was saying we are perfectly justified in evaluating, assessing, and pronouncing a verdict on the lifestyle of others based on what God’s Word teaches us. It’s not a matter of our own personal opinion, but rather, what God has to say about it in the Bible.

    The purpose of righteous judgment is to discern and fulfill the will of God in any given situation, the rational basis for decision-making. It has nothing to do with being “loving or unloving” or practicing “unconditional love,” as many will try to argue. In fact, we are warned to have nothing to do with any Christian brother or sister who habitually (and without remorse) practices sexual sin.

    How are we to follow this commandment to avoid such people if we do not exercise righteous judgment (discernment)?

    What does the Bible say about associating with professing Christians which practice sexual sin?

    “You must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister in Christ, who is SEXUALLY IMMORAL or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler.” – 1 Corinthians 5:11

    “Do not be misled: ‘Bad company (sinful associations) corrupts good character.’” – 1 Corinthians 15:33.

    “Marriage is to be held in honor among all, and the marriage bed is to be undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers (homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians, trans, queers, etc.) God will judge.” – Hebrews 13:4

    “…avoid immoral men and homosexuals, kidnappers, liars and perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound teaching…”- 1 Timothy 1:10

    “Flee from sexual immorality; every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.” – 1 Corinthians 6:18

    “But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints (Christians).” – Ephesians 5:3

    “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10

    The only solution to sexual sin: GIVE IT UP!

    Ask Jesus Christ to forgive you of your sinful past and sexual perversions. Invite Him to become the Lord and Savior of your life. Become spiritually born-again and start a new life in Christ. Attend a good Bible-believing church and become part of your local Christian community. Pray every day for God to transform you into a new man or woman, and He will. Amen.

    “Since we have these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from every defilement of body and spirit, bringing holiness to completion in the fear of God.” – 2 Corinthians 7:1

    I hope this helps you in your study of sexual immorality in the many forms it takes. Being “gay” is an abomination to God. So is having any form of sex outside of the holy bonds of marriage. I realize this is not a very popular moral stand in today’s immoral culture, but it is not my own opinion. It is solely based on God’s Word and holy commandments. You can obey His commandments and receive God’s forgiveness and blessings, or you can ignore this warning and reap everlasting destruction. The choice is yours.

    The LORD God Yehovah created the woman for the man for the purpose of marriage, companionship, and procreation. Any other form of sexual activity is a sin and must be repented of and completely put away when you become a Christian.

  • Beautiful Feet

    Beautiful Feet

    Our recent evangelistic outreach was a success as we preached “Salvation in Jesus Christ” to hundreds of people who saw and heard the gospel message on the streets of our town. The churches came out from their four walls unto the streets where the lost could be found. Many lives were encouraged, seeds of the gospel were planted, the poor and needy were fed, and God was glorified.

    My friend, Wendy, and I prayed for one man who needed a steady job. Within a few days, he let me know God had answered his prayer; he was starting a new job making $120 per day as a bricklayer. Praise be to God!

    The Pastor of one church who participated, said, “Wow, we need to do more OUTSIDE preaching! Maybe we’ll do this at least once a month.” I said, “That’s a very good idea.”

    When we allow God to use our feet and mouths to tell others about Jesus, He will do wondrous things in our midst. Expect signs, wonders, and miracles to happen! Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever.

    Let your feet be as beautiful as your smile as you take the Good News to others wherever you go!

    Fear is a Sign

    Fear is a sign that you’re not fully trusting God to take care of your situation.

    Isn’t it reassuring to know that God intimately watches over us and is concerned with every detail of our lives? He knows exactly what you’re going through right now, and is already working on a solution. Be encouraged today. Pray and ask Him for greater faith.

  • Accidental children?

    Accidental children?

    Not a chance! There are no accidents with God. Your parents may not have planned for you, but God did – and he had a purpose for your birth.

    “For You [Oh my God] formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” – Psalm 139:13

    There might be accidental parents, but there are NO accidental children. Every life is sacred to God. To abort a human fetus is murder. The pre-born have rights too and incredible value to God – even though small and unseen.

    So, if you facing an unplanned pregnancy, always CHOOSE LIFE. Carry that child to its fruition. If you cannot care for it, at least give it up for adoption. There are many loving parents who cannot have children; they will give your child a good and loving home.


    Consult the National Right to Life Foundation for available options for unplanned pregnancy.

    ROE VS. WADE VICTORY!

    KEEP PRAYING SAINTS – After years of praying for legalized abortion to end, our prayers have finally been answered: we recently celebrated the historic overturning of Roe v. Wade, by the U.S. Supreme Court. This is what happens when God’s people stand boldly for His truth and pray fervently for change. God answered our prayers!

    However, we still need to keep on praying, since legalized abortion will still be determined by each state. Although the Supreme Court has overturned the nearly 50-year-old precedent of the Roe vs. Wade case that established a right to an abortion, it hands the decision back to states, 26 of which are considered likely to ban the procedure.

    Accordingly, more than a quarter of the nation’s abortion clinics are expected to shut their doors in the coming weeks, as the effects of the national ruling play out.

    But what about the other 24 states and clinics? Some states may still rule in favor of legalized abortion! The abortion of unwanted babies will still remain in those states, therefore, we need to continue praying until all abortion is stopped completely. The battle is not over; keep praying saints of God!
