New focus of site I think?
A lot has happened in the past few days. Where to start I guess I will start with something that happened a few days ago. I was in a Christian chat and a topic came up and I tried to correct someone however they refused to accept correction. I was heartbroken by this. What I learned from this however is we cannot teach anything to anyone especially if they do not want to be taught. Even Jesus did keep trying to correct people and go after them. I am sure it breaks his heart when people walk away from him though.
Now let’s go to yesterday. I had a talk with a good Christian friend who knows a lot more then I do. One that is far closer to GOD then I am. It was a short conversation about one of the posts that were not helpful to him, that is fine. I know my goal is to find truth in the overwhelming amount of info out there. Which only GOD can help me with. So far I have only tried to encourage people to have a relationship with GOD and Jesus without the fear of coming to him or the fear of the unforgivable sin. Which I know some people struggle a lot with. I mean the fear, not the sin. They fear they are not good enough they fear they sinned too much to be saved and so on an so forth. I want to encourage you to not stop seeking. If you are able to seek then that is a good thing. If you are wanting to come to Jesus then that is also a good thing. Not everyone struggles with this however so what should the focus of the site be? I know it also came up yesterday that the Holy Spirit should be the one to teach instead of men or women. Does this mean I should not have the site at all? The idea came up. However, even though he is the only one we should allow teaching us that does not mean we do not need each other as Paul said here.
1 Corinthians 12:21
King James Bible
And the eye cannot say unto the hand, I have no need of thee: nor again the head to the feet, I have no need of you.
So we do need each other to lift each other up and to encourage one another. Also to help us stay focused on Jesus and not our selves. So I guess that maybe the future focus of the site, I think. At least encouraging others by seeking the truth and the truth will set you free. I know I am going to need GOD’s help as I do feel it was his desire for me to do this. Also, I know that GOD to teach others through me if he wanted to as he can do with others.
Also, there was something else mentioned by that friend and another friend. That is that we need to try not to analyze GOD or his word. I find it interesting that 2 people almost back to back said that same thing to me and neither of them knows each other. I guess I may be guilty of this and yet I know GOD is far greater than we are and we can not know everything about him. To know everything about him would make us greater and we are not.
Never give up seeking GOD. He is so GOOD that he is well worth having a relationship with. He is the creator of heaven and earth and he desires to free us from sin and death and have a relationship with us.
