Clarion Call. Christian Life Is Not A World Of Comfort And Ease

Philippians_3-14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians_3-14: I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.

By Jack Graham

And he said to all, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.”

Luke 9:23

I read awhile ago a statistic that said 47 percent of the people who live in the state of Texas attend church regularly. That’s nearly half of an entire state! Somebody said there are more churchgoers in Texas than people! Yet, that statistic saddens me because despite having so many who claim to be Christians in the area in which I live, our faith has very little influence on our population.

What’s happened to the Church? Well for one, the Church has retreated. No longer is the Church fearless, but they’re playing it safe, avoiding confrontation at all costs. They’re scared that someone’s going to be offended. They’re afraid someone is going to put them down. And as a result, churches across our nation have moved into the safety zone.

Now this is a heart issue that lies within each individual Christian. So many buy into the world’s lies that it doesn’t really matter what you believe about God as long as it makes you happy. But as believers, we simply can’t escape the clarion call in our lives to deny ourselves, take up our crosses daily, and follow Christ.

The Christian life isn’t a world of comfort and ease—it’s not a cruise ship. Instead, it’s a battleship—a lifelong fight against the enemy to win souls for the Kingdom of God. So if you’re searching for comfort in life, change your focus to serving the One who is Life!

Instead of seeking comforts in life, give yourself daily in service for the one who is life.

Ephesians_6-13: Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand

Thank You Jesus!

In Christ, The Battle Against Condemning Sin Is Over

When Jesus had received the sour wine, he said, “It is finished,” and he bowed his head and gave up his spirit.

John 19:30

1-Corinthians_1-18: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God

1-Corinthians_1-18: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God

When Jesus went to the cross, He didn’t die for a possibility of salvation. He didn’t give His life on the outside chance it would work. No, He came to earth, humbling Himself, and died willingly in your place so that for all who know Him, there would be a guarantee of eternal salvation.

All you have to do is accept the victory of Jesus Christ—what He accomplished for you upon the cross. When you do, peace will come into your heart and the war will be done. Just as He proclaimed on the cross, “It is finished,” that battle over condemning sin will be eternally finished in your life!

In Christ, The Battle Against Condemning Sin Is Over! So Trust Fully In His Saving Work For You On The Cross.

Romans_12-2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God

Romans_12-2: And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God

Thank You Jesus!

You Do not Have To Fight In This Battle.

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Psalms_9-1: I will praise thee, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

“. . . And the people shouted with a great shout, that the wall fell down flat, so that the people went up into the city, every man straight before him, and they took the city.”

Joshua 6:20 (KJV)

As we dream and march towards our vision for the year, there will be great opposition but fear not. There will be doors that will try to stop you from attaining but don’t be afraid. You will take your cities.

The children of Israel were shut out from entering Jericho and God told them, “you don’t have to fight in this battlejust march round the city while they watch you and on the seventh day, shout and blow the trumpet“. On the seventh day, just as God had instructed, the thick walls of Jericho came crashing down. It was so high and thick that bible historians told us that two or three cars can drive on the wall of Jericho. God didn’t need a bull-dozer or caterpillars. All He needed was the spoken word and as they turned round seven times, the walls came crashing down.

Simply obey His word and so will every wall that the enemy has built around your job, business, health, marriage, academics and career come crashing in Jesus name.

Do you ever wonder how you are going to survive? You have already survived. This year you will survive. You will hear some incredible things this year. The contract you have been pursuing will come calling. Things that you have forgotten will fall in place. Doors shall open of their own accord this year and you will not be denied. All that God has spoken to you will come to pass. God says “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11). Your eyes will see it, your hands will handle it and your mouth will testify of the goodness and faithfulness of God. I will hear your testimonies. I bless you today in the name of The Lord.
