Did you go to or see Harvest America this year? Did you give your life over to Christ? You still can do that--of course you can right now. That's the most important decision you'll ever make. And then you can start to follow Jesus Christ! What a great adventure.
Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ. —Philippians 1:6
Thousands here in Texas where I live just gathered for this nation-wide event (that's seen around the world really). Yes, we joined together with my SoCal pastor @GregLaurie for the Lord at Harvest America at AT&T Stadium. Was so great as always and over capacity. I saw them out the window..thousands of people trying to gain entrance. And some texted me from their cars after a while, cuz they decided to get back on the road home after there was no way.. realizing they needed to get home to watch it on their TVs. Hey no worries with me because I know these friends. They were already born again growing Christians and we all still had great joy over seeing what the Lord was doing--what an excellent problem. A too full stadium for Christ! And at the end of the whole "thang," when Greg was drawin' in the net if you will--givin' the altar call appeal / invitation, the football field there also reached capacity as well. The fire chief and the team had to redirect, yes, had to send those responding to the Gospel to a back room to pray to receive Christ. I've never seen that happen before. You know the field is pretty big and the harvest is ripe for the harvest. Loved it. But about that question above.. are you now in Christ as a new creation?
If you are really a Christian, you will:1.) confess that Jesus is Lord and allow Him to lead as Lord--you'll continue on in His word.
2.) obey the commandments of Christ, found in the Bible and find fellowship with other growing believers.
3.) be miserable while sinning, and return from it to pleasing Jesus biblically.
4.) keep yourself from the devil, and being negatively influenced by his crowd that's headed in the wrong direction and into sinning.
5.) walk in the Spirit instead of in the flesh--you'll love others no matter where they're from or what they look like. (Read 1 John in your Bible)
