RT @JohnPiper:“You will not have safety even in your dreams, until you accept Islam.” http://dsr.gd/1bc3YPG Perhaps. I choose Christ now, safety later.

To be pure in heart means that you've received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior. :)

It doesn't matter what's happened in the past. The past is over. What matters is today and tomorrow. Ask Jesus Christ to guide you.

"True Conversion" by Pastor Mike

“Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.” (2 Corinthians 5:17)

I want to talk with you about genuine (true) conversion. (This is an excerpt from the blog post: A Heart Gone Cold – Part 2.)

First of all, there are a whole lot of false conversions going on out there. Do you know anybody that says they’re saved (a Christ follower), but … well.

True conversion, on the other hand, and I was thinking, it starts when you first awaken to your own sinfulness. Right? (Romans 6:23; Isaiah 64:6)

I mean, you can live all your life, and sometimes you know something’s wrong, but you just can’t put your finger on it. But then the precious Holy Spirit comes along and He makes you knowledgeable of your sinful state. Jesus said, “When [the Holy Spirit] comes, [He] will convict the world concerning sin.” (John 16:8ab)

And then you find yourself thinking about Judgment Day. (Hebrews 9:27; 2 Corinthians 5:10) You know it’s interesting how everybody just “knows” about Judgment Day. Instinctively, everybody “knows.” Many don’t straighten up their lives “knowing” it, but they still acknowledge Judgment Day.

But the Holy Spirit comes along and He makes you knowledgeable of your sinful state. He does!

And it’s a good thing to become conscious that you’re a sinner. It’s a good thing that you find out you have cancer so you can do something about it. Some people think they’re better off not knowing. “What I don’t know can’t hurt me.” Right? “What I don’t know can’t hurt me.” That’s foolishness! That’s stupidity! What you don’t know CAN hurt you. And more than that, it can condemn you to hell. It’s a good thing to become conscious that you’re a sinner. It’s the first step towards genuine (true) conversion.

And then, after that, when your heart turns its attention to the Savior, which is also a work of the Holy Spirit, who died for sinners on the cross and then cries out in humility to Him, “Lord, save my soul!” ~ “If you confess with your mouth Jesus as Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you shall be saved” (Romans 10:9) ~ that’s when genuine conversion takes place. “[N]o one can say, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ except by the Holy Spirit.” (1 Corinthians 12:3c) That’s when genuine conversion takes place.

But then there’s another step after that with genuine conversion that’s very important.

And the best way to explain it, I was thinking, was by using the marriage analogy.

And the easy part of marriage is when you say, “I do.” Isn’t it? That’s the easy part. Anyone can do that. But then where the rubber meets the road is after that. In the days, months and years after you say, “I do,” that’s when you find out if you really “did.”

And it’s the same with genuine (true) conversion. When you say, “I do,” to Jesus, you really “do” until your last breath. (Genuine conversion plays out when you really “do” your “I do” to Christ over a lifetime!) :)

"Humbled" by Pastor Mike

I was humbled.

Not once.

Not twice.

But three times.

How much “humiliation” can a person take? (Philippians 2:5-11)

It’s a good thing to be “humbled.” It breaks the back of pride.

The first way I was humbled is I had to confess my sin to another person in public.

I had a bad attitude with an accounts manager at our bank. After that meeting I told God I would say I was sorry (admit my sin) if I ever ran into that person again. This is months later now. This person never works at the teller window. I mean, never. Except today she was. And guess who went to her window?

The second way I was humbled is I had to pay $100 at the gas station. It wasn’t for gas. It was for something else.

You see, I’d driven away with the handle to the gas pump still in my tank and ripped it clean away. My 13-year old daughter was with me. She got to see up close and personal how a dad who loves Jesus deals with an accident. He doesn’t get angry. He doesn’t throw a fit. He submits to the powers that be ~ to whatever they decide is reconciliation / repayment / restitution.

The third way I was humbled was when I got home and told my wife what happened.

I wasn’t able to get through on the cell phone so this is the first time she heard it. And she looked at me sternly. (She needed to.) And she said, “Mike, you can’t continue to keep the schedule you’re keeping.” She was right. I’ve been burning the candle on both ends with social media, etc. (And here I am writing this blog post!) It’s been affecting my judgment and my alertness.

I need to be more balanced. (Pray for me.) If the devil can’t stop you from doing something, he’ll get you to overdo that something.

Is there an area in your life that you need to be “humbled”?

I've always had "issues" with clergy. God has had to teach me to love them. My atheist father thinks it's funny. Oh well. I try. Thank you for your honesty :)
