HOLY GHOST PREACHING
Just a quick post to while I am seeking God . I am listening to my Pastors sermon called ” When your all is not your everything” . Pastor Green is speaking about the early church and what made them great. How we as the church today can learn from them.
Scripture text Acts 4: 32-34

LIVING A LIFE TOTALLY DEVOTED TO GOD TAKES MATURITY
Living a life that is totally dedicated to God!!!
I will tell you that it can be a process. It takes maturity. Sometimes when we first give our lives to God we are on fire. But then we fall back into being just Sunday pew Christians . Because we don ‘t want to do extra if no one else is doing it.
But we must learn how to move in the HOLY SPIRIT. If God says to go out and evangelize than go out and do so. Don ‘t worry about the Pastor or the rest of the church.
If God told you to start a business than don ‘t wait for someone to prophecy to you or to ordain you a Joseph. Go out and be who God called you to be. Give God your everything in your life.
Romans 5 We can rejoice, too, when we run into problems and trials, for we know that they help us develop endurance. 4 And endurance develops strength of character, and character strengthens our confident hope of salvation. 5 And this hope will not lead to disappointment. For we know how dearly God loves us, because he has given us the Holy Spirit to fill our hearts with his love.
Sometimes like Peter. It takes experience and tribulation sometimes to overcome ourselves. We grow above our shortcomings. Peter went from denying CHRIST and telling CHRIST he could not go to the cross to preaching on the day of Pentecost and being crucified upside down.
But he got to the point where he gave his all! He learned how to overcome himself and to seek God!!!
