Saying is Different Than Acting
Matthew 5:13-16
When you let the Jesus come into your heart and be your savior you are supposed to act upon the fact. Where I go to school there are alot of people who say they are Christians but then they go and do stuff that they know is wrong and un-christ like. I have recently received a text message from someone that goes to my school he said a lot of great stuff but this is what really stood out to me, “ a lot of people claim to follow Jesus but don’t act it and to have someone else at the school that isn't constantly being bad is nice.”

In Matthew 5;14, Jesus says, “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.” When we serve we shine a light that people can see. When we serve together as a body of Christ its compared to a city on a hill. A city on a hill can be seen so easily so if we work together as a body we will make a better impact using are special gifts that God has given each and every one of us. We can use the gifts God's given us to make a larger impact (1 Corinthians 12).
Using the gifts can allow you to create an impact you can change a non-believer's life. By just being kind and shining your light.

Confusion Created by the “Heaping Up” Of the Falling Away
https://sungrist3in1.wordpress.com/
I wish we could say that none of our leaders in the SBC, conservative Bible churches, or among the fundamentalists leaders who took over the SBC are in the Bible warning about the Falling Away–in other words teachers and preachers that are heaped up in pulpits and classes and on TV who will tell people what they want to hear. Yes, read II Timothy 4:4,5 carefully. It states that church members after they have come to the point of no longer enduring sound doctrine–and I hope you see we are already there–”out of their own desires” will they heap up to themselves teachers with itching ears. They fill the pulpits and classrooms with what they want, not what they are led by Christ and the Spirit to call and appoint. This heaping up has two aspects: the heaping out of the church, pulpit, and classrooms of teachers of sound doctrine; and the heaping in of itching ears teachers who will speak what the congregation wants to hear. Now, if you think your church or denomination is bankrupt of such heaping in and heaping out in the heaping up process, then you are deceiving yourself; for there is no way that any church or country can escape the inevitability of the world wide Falling Away. Bottom line what this is saying is that your pastor or Bible teachers are making contributions to the “heaping up” process, and therefore of the Confusion in the Congregation. In fact like the children of Israel who did not want to listen directly to God, your people prefer to listen to their pastor who will most often tell them what they want to hear! And at heart much of the confusion which we find in congregations of the Southern Baptist Convention today, with all the fighting and continued warfare, come from decades of pastors soothing the congregations with words like “patience, it will all be okay”. Fighting and a spirit of fighting has never been good; and pastor James reminds us where fighting and warfare really come from, not from some noble cause like the fundamentalists would have you believe, but “from the spirit within us that lusteth to envy.” (James 4:1-6) Where envy is allowed to dominate, confusion is in the congregation; where the fighting spirit has gained control confusion is in the congregation; and where you see the heaping up of teachers with itching ears, you know that more confusion is on the way!

What goes in your heart also comes out: It is very important that we guard what comes in our heart. Filter out the bad stuff. Like what we watch, read and listen to. Places we go and more. Using discernment. Making choices that you stick to now. #Heart
