This post was inspired by a conversation with Rev. Figueroa and the testimony he posted.
Can you remember when you sincerely for the first time gave your heart ❤️ to Jesus? Maybe you were not yet well versed in the Bible, you certainly were not indoctrinated yet, but all you knew was that you loved God and wanted to live for him. You wanted to be in church, not to find fault because you were no longer looking for fault to find in order to justify yourself. You just wanted Jesus and to tell others about Jesus!
Fast forward a few years, now your “suited up”, you inwardly and outwardly find fault with other Christians and churches who don’t hold to your standards, and the innocence of your love for Christ has been chilled by a cold-hearted religion of law keeping instead of a relationship with Christ.
Or, maybe you were viscously done wrong in the church by people you trusted and find it hard to have anything to do with any type of church.
These are not far fetched situations, they happen all the time, more than we all realize. We are not the only ones to experience such things. Yet, the answer is still Jesus! Going back to our first LOVE ❤️, Jesus! Reclaiming the zeal for him that we lost through trusting in the lies of sinful ministers. We can allow Jesus to be our Pastor again! We can believe again, or still believe as the sister said!
Don’t let Denis or the Devil bring you down, especially when Jesus died and rose again that you might have LIFE and that much more ABUNDANTLY!
