134: Balance in the Christian life!

Nr. 134:

Balance in the Christian life!

Everything that I have experienced as believers and people, I am to pass on as a believer and a preacher in some way. This is, of course, so for everyone else. We are a product of what we have experienced and gone through. Being ne preach is really speaking the self have seen and heard.

Room for first persons in God's church?

We know that the Norwegian school focuses mainly on creating an Average of pupil, where one has trouble embracing those who are weakest and strongest stillt. To think that it is also in the spiritual area here in Norway, we create and want us average Christians that does not cause too much trouble and as easily able to handle. This is of course some exaggeration, but to bring up the point I have to set it up so square!

Blue-eyed or bitter

My experience is that there are many believers who go from one trench to the next trench. First is a very happy and satisfied and believe that all believers are angels without wings. So meet a disappointment and another, as are the same people said angels without wings. There are many such believers I've met who have been so, and they are really so wounded that they are dangerous for your spiritual life. I know several of these and I could have mentioned many names.

It has no intention to be violated or sur

In a healthy spiritual and human maturity so raises an across people, situations and events. We know that God has something on the program that is always better when a door closes in, Lord knows best. My experience is that God shapes and forms us through the events, as he is Lord also of the time and place!

Hosanna or crucify?

I try to draw up the lines so that you will go and go way of the Lord 100% will not be surprised at what you will experience. Deform I do this available to you so that you are prepared for komende events. So you going way of the Lord, the fact you again. Jesus experienced that when he rode into Jerusalem was the Hosanna and hyllingsrop, a few days later there was cross party and to be nailed to a cross to be counted among the evildoers.

We must enter the kingdom of God through many tribulations

Acts 21 They preached the gospel in that city and won many disciples. So they went back to Lystra, then on to Iconium, and thence to Antioch. 22 strengthening the disciples and exhorted them to continue in the faith, saying: "We must go into the kingdom of God through many tribulations."

It is strange when we do not experience the troubles, when it tells indirectly that there is something not right. The normal Christian life is to have a hard time, but still victorious.

2. Kor. 4. 8 as we are always in trouble, but not cowed, doubtful, but not mistvilende, 9 persecuted, but not hopeless, dejected, but not destroyed - 10 always bearing the death of Jesus with us in body, that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our body . 11 For yet while we live, we are increasingly consigned to death for Jesus' sake, that the life of Jesus may be manifested in our mortal flesh. 12 Thus, when death at work in us, but life in you.

God will guide you always

Wherever Myre negative and drop it, God is bigger and will steer you in the journey deliberate acts. He will satisfy you in the wilderness.

Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness and into trouble. Sometimes you meet might be preaching that says if you have it hard, there's something wrong. a Christian is to be successful, victorious, happy, spared the hardship, etc.

Such preaching is dangerous. Both because it is not biblical and because we so easily take it to us. We would get it! But sometimes the spirit leads us to places we did not think ourselves into the trials we did not want us.

Are you in the "desert" now? Then Jesus will be there with you. He has been there before. He has been tempted in all, have been tempted. He passed the test, he won. And his victory is yours! Everything we go through is to nurture, mature and develop ourselves to be Christ like and be a blessing to our fellow human beings!

What creates balance

It creates balance is maturity. There are things in Christian life that one can not achieve that convert is, one can for example do not get a service gift that convert is, one must first prove suitable and tested for the deed. So it is in other areas, can one not to govern marriage and family, as is the service in the church out of the question anyway! Everything is our of our lives that it can withstand the light and that we thrive in the light of our works will be done in God. The spiritual growth comes through daily repentance, water bath in the word and prayer. At the same time to socialize with other people, first of all believers and the ability to accept both corrective and encouragement from both God and man!
