Grow in Christ


Who is Christ Jesus,

other than the one,

we know to be true?

Many do not know Christ Jesus.


despite the ridicule,

He is a man,

that we can find no fault in.

Why not chase after Him?

Give me a legitimate reason.

    GOOD EVENING DION ~ Excellent Avice ! To US the concept is ~ if we put Christ FIRST in our lives ~ Accept HIM as our Saviour & Mediator and follow HIS Teachings ~ WE will grow SPIRITUALLY and be more CHRISTLIKE in our attitudes towards others (Demonstrate the traits known as the *Nine Fruits of the Spirit*) and more effective Spiritually in our Churh our Home & our Community !

    Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
    Love in the SPIRIT ~ ANGELA & BRIAN

    A fine write Forever.
    I am distracted though, by 'altar calls' in some churches. Should I go forward? will others see me if I don't go forward? do I really mean it, or am I just following the crowd going forward? it gets all embarrassing.
    Of course in some places 'altar calls' never happen. It's not in their 'style of services to do it.

      You don't have to go to an alter call to accept Christ. You do not have to impress anyone, not even Christ. Still, it is important that you do accept Him. It is the most important decision in a person's life, but you can do it in the privacy of your own home if you want to. You just have to mean it from the heart.
      Persistence is key

        I understand this, and believe I have done it. I just find it distracting, if asked to 'come forward' for various things, to show one is 'progressing'. Not that anyone is super-spiritual for going forward! A church became a bit of 'The Y Show' (initial of the main Minister), or so I think.

        Yes! We all should chase after Christ. I wish more people would give Him a chance to change their hearts. They are so hurt, though, so I can understand their hesitancy. But God could heal their hearts, if only they would be open to Him.
