Let Christ Guide Our Bodys

January 11, 2008

Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth;
keep watch over the door of my lips!
Do not let my heart incline to any evil,
to busy myself with wicked deeds
in company with men who work iniquity,
and let me not eat of their delicacies! Psalm 141:3-4 

11 And the Lord will guide you continually
and satisfy your desire in scorched places
and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
like a spring of water,
whose waters do not fail. Isaiah 58:11

I tend to sometimes think that I can guide myself, but find out that I fail whenever I try. If I go my way and not the Lords way you will work hard to make your way work when God already knows the right way. God did not just die for us so we would be clean but he still guides us, and helps us when we fall. He will guide us when we trust him for he says in Psalms 34:15:

The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous and his ears are attentive to their cry.

Whenever we are having problems we need to pray and trust on Christ to help you and go to a spiritual Friend as well. God will help you and hear you if you trust in him. You can see that in Psalms 141 David is crying out and saying that he needs help. We all need help and if we don’t want to ask we might have pride and if we have pride we have a problem. Pride is the reason most of the time that we don’t want to tell what garbage we have in our hearts but we need to tell because nobody will be be suprised because we have garbage too.

When you have problems pray and then you can ask your parent and you could even put it in the prayer requests on this site. But remember to let Christ guide you!

Faith Without Works Is Dead

January 3, 2008

14 What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good [2] is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

18 But someone will say, “You have faith and I have works.” Show me your faith apart from your works, and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe—and shudder! 20 Do you want to be shown, you foolish person, that faith apart from works is useless? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered up his son Isaac on the altar? 22 You see that faith was active along with his works, and faith was completed by his works; 23 and the Scripture was fulfilled that says, “Abraham believed God, and it was counted to him as righteousness”—and he was called a friend of God. 24 You see that a person is justified by works and not by faith alone. 25 And in the same way was not also Rahab the prostitute justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out by another way? 26 For as the body apart from the spirit is dead, so also faith apart from works is dead. James 2:14-26

Pretend that you are walking and a person asks is you know and love God and then he/she asks how you show it, what would you say. If you have works and not faith alone you will have a good relationship with the Lord. When I don’t spend quality time with Christ he lets me know. works could be Caring for a brother or sister when they are in bad times or praising Christ or spending quality time with him. Christ could not give it to James any better. He tries to tell us that faith without works is useless. What are you showing when a non-believer sees that you believe but you show no grace, mercy or any other fruits will that help them. That might show them that Christians are just like any other people.

We need to be giving good fruits and that will make a difference when you show good works.
