Here is some absolutely awesome things my pastor spoke on today!!!!
1. As Christians we live a cleansed life which is not always a clean life but we stay cleansed through the blood of Jesus
2. A True Holy Life is a cleansed life. You have to believe with your heart that you are forgiven through Christ and you are walking in love
3. Your repentance is NOT a response of God's Forgiveness it is a Result! God forgave you first! and because you know you are loved by God you repent. Guilt and Finger pointing is NOT the way to get someone to come to Christ/church that is manipulation! but telling them they are loved and that love will change them!
4. TRUE HOLINESS is from THE INSIDE-OUT NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND.
5. Homosexuals should be open to come to church even if they stay homosexuals. Homosexuality is a sin just like everything else the church doesn't condone it BUT Homosexuals should be accepted and welcomed in church just like couples who live together and not married, or people who lie, or people who don't tithe! The more people consume themselves of God and hear/read His Word and know they are loved they eventually will change.
STOP TELLING SINNERS IF THEY CHANGE EVERYTHING IN THEIR LIFE THEN THEY CAN COME TO GOD! GOD WELCOMED THEM THE MINUTE HE PUT JESUS ON THE CROSS TO DIE FOR ALL OUT SINS!!!!Scriptures used: Acts 26:14-16Matthew 5:8Hebrews 12:14-17
