The True Life Christians New Year Fixed Purpose for 2018…

Calling all True Life Christians! What is your resolution or fixed purpose for 2018? Some may promise or vow to the Lord for a deeper prayer-life, or for safety in travels praising God every time you are safe at home, or for an absence of stress from work or home so you can effectively witness (tell the truth about God & eternity) to others.
However, all to often, God allows us True Life Christians to go through “it” proving that you are not disciplined enough, or prove that you are not all that confident in a car in order to make it home safely, or you are particularly sensitive to stress. You ask God to take it away without you going through it, whatever the “it” is. Yet, God doesn’t work that way, usually.

God allows “you” to go through “it” so you can trust Him even more. Although it’s terrible while your going through “it,” if you keep your eyes on God you will get a closer relationship with Him. True Life Christianity’s call for every True Life Christian is to trust Him more.

If You Know The Right Thing To Do But Don’t Do It, Is It A Sin?

With Christmas less than a week away, is it a sin to act like the devil especially in long lines @ the store, or you’re stingy that when people think of you it’s a compliment to call you Scrooge during Christmastime?

Well, James 4:17 in the Holy Scriptures, it says, “So whoever knows the right thing to do & fails to do it, for him it is a sin.” Hmmm… Something to think about & do!

A New Christmas Slant…

Generally, Americans act like they are in a rush, partly due to the over commercialization & the digital age that we are living in. Then comes a holiday like Christmas or the Christmas Season in which you feel amazing social pressure if you don’t want to spend as much on presents.

You would think that we would move beyond this commercialization of Christmas; however, we have not, @ least here in the United States of America. Instead we have moved into the era of technology with commercialization. Many Christian organizations have fell prey to this, promising that if you support their ministry, then they promise a free Christmas picture of the nativity (Mary, Joesph, in a nice cozy barn with the baby Jesus surrounded by 3 wise men & a few animals laying down). I don’t think it was like that at all, but enough on that subject for now.

“Ok, what’s your point, then.” The True Life Christians take on this is while the this Christmas Season is focused in on the miraculous birth of Jesus (Luke 2), that isn’t the sole purpose of “baby Jesus” coming to earth. For this is God’s Holy purpose: make us, human beings, with the ability to access heaven, past, present, & future if we only actively believe that Jesus Christ died & bodily came back to life. That’s True Life.

Here’s a picture & a poster to help convey this:

If we confess our sins…

During this Christmas Season, human beings should watch how they treat others; don’t act like the grinch. We should confess our sins (our Christmas “sins”; 1 John 1:9); however, we don’t think like that around Christmastime. Yet True Life Christians should watch the way we treat others all the time (Matthew 7:12-14), & this should be a way of life.

If you decide to live this way… spoiler alert… it isn’t going to be easy. For worth while things, spiriual things like True Life Christians should expect, are often hard and take some time in this uber fast society. However, Christ Jesus knows what your going through because He went through it first (1 Peter 2:21).

Low Down Dirty Shepherds…

At church service, we learned that an ordinary run of the mill shepherd, by & large, were the worse job you could aspire to. A little research of my own, confirms this as true. So why would Jesus Christ affiliate Himself with low down dirty shepherds?

In fact, throughout the Bible, God uses people with checkered pasts like Abraham, Moses, Gideon, etc… After years of studying the Holy Scripture, to associate Himself with sinners actually fits His personality. Right? Think about it. In fact, I have John 3:17 to back me up, for it says, “For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him” (ESV).

Think of His personality, once again. It was common that Jesus would go into the houses of the hated tax collectors, prostitutes, & the like. So, it would indeed make sense that Jesus Christ would identify Himself as the Chief Shephard (1 Peter 5:4). For it says in Peter 2:21, “For to this you have been called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you might follow in His steps” (ESV).

True Life’s take on Psalm 33:18

Psalm 33:18 “Behold the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope on His steadfast love,” (ESV)

On the surface this verse seems pretty simplistic, & it is. However, for us True Life Christians acting it out is harder than it seems. Take the first phrase of Psalm 33:18- “Behold, the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him.” True Life Christians are subject to any fear that plagues human beings, yet they have the only One who can spare them into a place of eternal torment. I, as a True Life Christian, want to be spared from that place, so I don’t become too enamoured with the physical. For it is the last part of that verse that says, “on those who hope on His steadfast love,” I, as a True Life Christian, want to hang on.
What am I supposed to hope for or in? “Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1 KJV)? The answer to what faith is hoping that Jesus Christ, to whom was here for a short bit then gone up to heaven only to return, is going to do what He promised by coming back in the rapture.
You say, “That good & all, but really? Look @ the world! Some may say that it is going to hell in a hand basket! There is no hope.” True Life Christians would agree to some extent if you take Jesus out of the picture. But as soon as you put Him in, the whole game changes just like designated hitter David Ortiz who retired as a baseball player for the Boston Red Sox or the football quarterback Tom Brady who plays for the New England Patriots. There’s something about those guys that makes you want be on their team because their winners.
Would you like to be on a winning team? This is an open invitation that stands for all time to become part of True Life Christians. First, you have to accept what Jesus Christ did & is doing for you; then you have to see the error of one’s ways & continually ask for forgiveness from your heavenly Daddy, & live as James 2:14, 17 says, “What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have any works? Can that save him? So faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.” For if you do this, you will have angels & True Life Christians cheering for you! As Psalm 33:18 says, “Behold the eye of the LORD is on those who fear Him, on those who hope on His steadfast love” (ESV).

Cry for you…


In this time of happiness, Christmastime, there are some humans that dread this time of year. Whether it be the recent loss of someone to the past loss of someone around this time of year. Maybe it was someone who did something criminally wrong to you or your family, & that person suddenly died in prison, jiping you of the justice you finally got when they handed down the verdict. Or maybe you have some other reason why this isn’t the most happiest time of year.
From my own life, the autumn of 2000 holds special significance. My grandmother, who I called Ma, died on my brother’s birthday. “Ok,” you say, “sad, really sad. But what again are you trying to get at, what does this have to do with Christmas?” Bridle your horses. Read on…

As I told you, she died on my brother’s birthday. What I didn’t tell you is that I was especially close to my Ma. Over a lifetime, she helped out my mother by watching my brother & me. Often times, we would have supper there because our mother would have to work 12-16 hours, & our dad was working late. My older brother & I grew close to Ma as well as my parents until her physical body passed.

As always, death never takes a holiday as I was wrapping up my master’s program @ Springfield College. Her death could not have come @ a worse time. But it came anyway, & with that 1st Christmastime without Ma would be especially tough.

It was emotional. However, there was a time that emotions were thought of as coming from the devil, Satan, or the Deceiver. Maybe your still under that delusion? Even Jesus Christ was emotional. The classic, “Jesus wept” (John 11:35). You say that’s always used. “Just give me another example,” you say. Jesus clears out the money-changers from the temple (Matthew 21:12). You say, “That’s only two.”
In the garden of Gestheme, Jesus was crying out to His Father to take away this cup of suffering; through Christ’s horrible whipping prior to the cross; the jack-hammering down of 2 inch thorns upon His head; before His physical passing He yelled out “My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?” (Matthew 27:46). With this kind of emotion, you want to believe Jesus Christ wants us emtionless? I believe that Christ wants us to use our emotions with their true intent; that true intent being having us draw closer to Christ.

It’s true that Christ has experienced everyone’s pain past, present, & future. Why don’t you let Him as He Cry’s for you.

Why would God make it so HARD to believe in Jesus Christ, His Son?

This is a question I have pretty soon after I believed: Why would God make it so HARD to believe in Jesus Christ, His Son?

Well, I am going to do my best to answer this question. If your familiar with Christianity & the book of Hebrews, then you are familiar with Hebrews 11:1, which says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (KJV). Let me clear this up for you, Jesus Christ is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” But, to gain access to heaven, you have to believe in Jesus Christ.

Although for the next 25 days, we celebrate the Christmas season. Christmas is the coming of the One who is going to rescue the world & deliver us, that is people that would accept His name & proclaim the joy you have found. It starts off with Mary, Joeseph, & the little baby Jesus. Yet, I don’t want you to have a false view, but a true view; it was a feeding trough, used for the pigs, cows, goats, & sheep thatthey placed our Savior in. Today, all you see is a small infant to signify the infant Jesus in various parts of the United States of America. I don’t know about other parts of the world, however.
You might be saying how the virgin birth was essential part. I’d agree with you. It was. However, I think we make it to easy to concentrate Jesus’s birth & not God’s true gift that allows access to heaven: Jesus Christ dying on the cross & 3 days later, He rose from the grave. In fact, I drew a picture & had it put on a long-sleeve t-shirt…

Yet, True Life Christians have no problem in obeying the great commission which says, “Go therefore & make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, of the Son, & of the Holy Spirit, teaching them all I commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20, ESV). Sure, most of us get nervous, but when it comes right down to it, we will declare the name of Jesus as to the One that will get us into heaven.

So why would God make it so HARD to believe in Jesus Christ, His Son? Well, 1 Peter 2:21 says, “For to this you have been called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, so that you may follow in His steps” (ESV). Jesus Christ has been there before. He knows what you are going through.
