REPENTANCE!


repentance-radical

THIS IS NOT A POPULAR WORD TODAY IN THE CHURCH WORLD!

Acts 3:19, Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord

Merriam-Webster – to turn from sin and dedicate oneself to the amendment of one’s life:  to feel regret or contrition :  to change one’s mind

SO MANY WANT TO REPENT ENOUGH TO GET OUT OF HELL, BUT DO NOT WANT TO REPENT ENOUGH TO SURRENDER THEIR LIVES.

Doesn’t repentance demand that you surrender your life?

YES!!

That is the point.  Many have “repented” yet have not REPENTED.  They do not want to lose their soul to Satan, but they also do not want to SURRENDER their lives to JESUS either.

Matt. 16:25, If you try to hang on to your life, you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake, you will save it.

TRUE HAPPINESS, PEACE, AND JOY COME THROUGH A CLEAN HEART BEFORE JESUS.

Allow the Holy Spirit to meddle in your heart and mind to bring forth those areas that are holding you back from excelling in your relationship with Christ.

YOU WILL NEVER REGRET IT!

I CAN’T GET NO SATISFACTION….BUT I TRIED!


cant_get_no_satisfaction_new_1024x1024

WHAT A SONG!

“I can’t get no satisfaction….cause I tried…I can’t get no…..”

SO MANY BELIEVERS ARE LIVING A DISSATISFIED LIFE BECAUSE THEIR SATISFACTION IS ROOTED IN THE WRONG GROUND.

Many citizens of heaven are basing their satisfaction, their happiness, their joy, on things this world has to offer rather than simply in Jesus.

Ps. 23:1, The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want (that means no needs, satisfied).

Jesus made this clear to the Samaritan woman at the well in John 4 between temporal and eternal.

John 4:13-14, Jesus answered and said to her, “Whoever drinks of this water will thirst again,14 but whoever drinks of the water that I shall give him will never thirst. But the water that I shall give him will become in him a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life.

WHEN WE ARE DISSATISFIED WITH LIFE WE HAVE TO ASK OURSELVES THAT GREAT QUESTION, “WHY”….

When Christ is your satisfaction then in all situations you can live in peace of heart and mind.

WHEN CHRIST IS “NOT” YOUR SATISFACTION, then you have to look for temporal things that will satisfy for a short period and then you are going to have to strive to fill that hole again with something NEW.

New always get old – it is just a matter of time.

NO man or woman, husband or wife, job, money, location, home, car, friends, family, no booze, no drug, NOTHING CAN SATISFY WITH LONGEVITY OTHER THAN JESUS.

MAKE JESUS YOUR SATISFACTION AND YOU WILL FIND LIFE COME INTO ORDER AND JOY AND PEACE WILL CONTROL YOUR LIFE RATHER THAN WORKING SO HARD TO FIND SATISFACTION.

Make Jesus #1 in your life today!

WE ARE GOING TO DO AN EXPERIMENT!


experiment

Don’t you love doing experiments?

It does two things for you.
1). Gives you and I a purpose, a directive, an assignment.
2). It helps other people experience the love of Jesus through us.

But exhort one another daily, while it is called “Today,” lest any of you be hardened through the deceitfulness of sin. (Hebrews 3:13 NKJV)

EXHORT – means to encourage, strengthen

We have been going around smiling at everyone (and seeing that most do not smile back), showing people that we live in joy, not the emotion called happiness.

TODAY……..
Continue the smiling, then within 30 seconds I want you to compliment them. It could be their attire, their car, their family, their teeth, their work ethic, the list is huge, but find something to build, and encourage them within 30 seconds of being near them.

This does multiple things for them and us. You have an assignment, a purpose, and they are being encouraged while today is called today. Watch and wait for the opportunity to share Jesus with them.

IT IS GOING TO BE A GREAT DAY!

BE A BUILDER, NOT A DESTROYER!

I WANT GENUINE HAPPINESS!


looking-for-true-happiness

HAPPINESS IS AN EMOTION THAT SHOULD NOT GOVERN US, BUT IT SURE IS A GREAT SENSATION!

Joy is our constant (Neh. 8:10b,  for the joy of the LORD is your strength.) because it is the personality of the Holy Spirit who lives in us (Gal. 5:22, But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,).

WHEN WE ARE IN A GOOD PLACE WITH JESUS THEN NOT ONLY DOES THE JOY OF THE LORD SUPERSEDE OUR ENVIRONMENTS, BUT HAPPINESS COMES TO OUR SOUL!

A smile……GENUINE!

A chuckle!

A laugh!

Inside our soulish man is beaming!

Prov. 17:22,  A happy heart is good medicine and a cheerful mind works healing, but a broken spirit dries up the bones.  AMP

There are few words that can wrap around the sensation of true happiness.  It is not a fleeting feeling of infatuation.  It is not a woman or a man.  It is not money or fame.  TRUE GODLY HAPPINESS BURSTS THROUGH YOUR SPIRIT AND PENETRATES AND SATURATES THE VERY FIBERS OF YOUR SOUL AND BODY.

You can actually tell when someone is happy.  They walk different.  They hold their heads up different.  They have a step in their gait.

HOW DO I GET HAPPINESS?

You NEVER seek happiness………………. THE REASON……..it is not hidden.

IN THE PRESENCE OF JESUS IS FULLNESS OF JOY!

Ps. 16:11, You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.  ESV

When you seek happiness in any other avenue it will always be short-lived.  

THE ONLY WAY TO BE HAPPY LONG-TERM IS TO GET THE JOY FROM JESUS AND THEN HAPPINESS (the emotion) WILL ERUPT IN YOUR SOUL & BODY!

Stop looking for happiness in temporal things……YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE TO KEEP SEARCHING!
