Welcome To S.o.H
Hello Soulja Nation Squad,
Today I would like to encourage you to step out from your comfort zone and start doing things for the Kingdom of Heaven… Christians for years have had a bad rap sheet as being wimpy by sitting back and not stepping out for Jesus, from this aspect were down but not out! I encourage you to stand up for Jesus in your life and become the example of Jesus Christ’s love unto others This action starts with each us.
Been there done that, I’m referring to being a silent Christian, and this is not what God wants or likes out of each of us. Scripture states so,
. 18 Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20 and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Matthew 28:17-20
As I said Scripture states don’t be silent be active! Here is another scripture reference also stating to be an active Christian!
. 19 “Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will send you out to fish for people.” Matthew 4:18-19
The bible is very clear “silent Christian” option is not an option at all. So, I strongly stand with the statement that individuals like myself included must be active getting the message of Jesus Christ’s love for mankind out there! But for many years now many Christians, (I’m guilty in the past as well) for trying to serve God on church day and then go about the rest of the week they way they saw fit… This is not scriptural based because it goes against the two scriptures shared above…
Down But Not Completely Out!
Jesus is everyone’s legend that chooses to seek Him, and because of this we have the option to pick ourselves back up with the guidance of the Holy Spirit, the very same Holy Spirit, that brought Jesus Christ, back to life on the 3rd day. So by the authority of Heaven and the power of the Holy Spirit, we are able to stand firm in this dark world and spread the love of Jesus Christ, through our words and actions… Denying to do such is not going to play out well. Also many already are being active but have no heart behind it. I’ve also been down this route as well… Hence why I ended up writing apology posts and deleting over 300 posts here to start over through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, it was actually the Holy Spirit, that requested me to get rid of the content here and start over…
But Andrew, I First Need To Get Myself In Order Before God, Can Use Me
Don’t even go that route that is a lie from the pits of hell, God utilizes willing individuals as He sees fit! I’m an example of such, I got caught up writing posts with my own strength and not God’s strength while also losing heart behind writing for God. Then God, took S.o.H, platform from me for almost 2 weeks within a very short time frame God helped me refocus my focus back on to Jesus Christ, and I’m now writing posts inspired by our true example of a true Soulja of Hope, Jesus Christ, and directed by the Holy Spirit, So, Yes! God can use you right away!!! But are you willing to start right away???. If God sees that being fit in your life.
I say it like that because some need more training from God, first because they are consider new converts (Baby Christians) while other like myself have been established more longer but wasn’t fully being active for the Lord almighty.
None Of Us Are Perfect, Jesus Christ, Is The Perfect One!
Jesus Christ, is everyone’s perfect example to imitate because we all fall short of the Glory of God.
22 This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus Romans 3:22-24
To be utilized by God we need to be willing to follow God’s desires over our own desires and step out in faith even when the comfort zone line is crossed over and step out with faith even when fear tries to settle in… We must push forward with faith and believe God, will handle on His end and the Holy Spirit will give us the words at the right time even when we are lost for words…
22 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. 23 “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,’ and does not doubt in their heart but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. 25 And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive them, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.” Mark 11:22-25
Example of above scripture in action! As of really recent I had a matter that arose and the person hurt my feelings I didn’t know the answer for them, So first I had to forgive them for their words and actions that were hurtful, then I proceeded in prayer and asked the Holy Spirit to lead me to scripture for the question asked and for interpretation from the Holy Spirit, so I could break down the scripture to be understood, I was purely out of my comfort zone but I remained faithful before the Lord to help this person even though they hurt my feelings…
The outcome is, the person got their answer and my faith deepen even though the situation wasn’t truly a friendly atmosphere but the moral of the situation is God reached this person through me to answer their question and I got to see how a little faith makes a big difference.
This Post is getting long so, I’m going to break the post down into a small series,
Abba (Heavenly Father) Thank you for bringing me out of gang banging and satanism, this is my past life now! Abba, I invite the Holy Spirit to lead me as I learn more and more to lead other individuals towards Jesus Christ, Lord as I seek to be a Soulja of Hope, as I imitate the truest Soulja of Hope, Jesus Christ, help me as each day arises for less of me to be in the way, So, Jesus Christ! is seen more and more through the words I speak and the actions I complete in Jesus Mighty name. Amen!
Join Me In Prayer!
Abba, I “Input Your Name Into Prayer” come before you today! because I desire to follow your will in my life, Lord, help me to step past fear and to also help me go from being a silent Christian, to becoming a Christian that is on fire for Jesus Christ!
