Beliefs

If your behavior does not reflect your beliefs, how valuable are those beliefs? -Daily Walk Bible

All to often when you run into people you can not tell where they stand. You have no idea whether they are believers of "The Way".

What does that say about those who are believers of Christ? Is it fear that keeps people from manifesting their faith in their lives? Persecution? Or the infamous words "Judgement"?

Let's get some things straight first - the Word says you will suffer as I have suffered. Matthew 5:10 "Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." What makes you think you are above suffering persecution in this century?

   "For to this you have been called, because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in his steps."  1 Peter 2:21

We are not in Romans time but anyone who proclaims Christ will suffer! This is not our home, we are not to be comfortable here!

Secondly: the bible is clear that as believers we are accountable to one another. If a brother is in sin we are to speak to them to bring them back. How do we do that without examining their lives? In other words judging them. See people take judgement as a negative thing but scripture does mean for believers to "judge" but not in the sense as judge and jury and you are in jail thing but as a manifestation of love. Too often people manifest concern and people take that as judgement. First examine the person coming to you- are they someone significant in your life? If so then how can you take their love and concern and turn it? Second be sure to examine motive? Does the person gain? If not then you know their "judgement" isn't judgement but love and concern. Don't let the enemy take what is meant for good and turn it into evil.

Walking this walk is suppose to manifest in our every day lives! We are suppose to be identified and others should know where we stand. Too often for the sake of acceptance people do not stand on righteousness and godliness. Oh how we grieve the heart of Christ. Stand up True Believers- because Christ is coming!
