A little more lengthy introduction:
I would like to start off by saying that I am glad to see that there are, even among the internet, Christians that do not compromise for the lusts/standards of the world! (Ephesians 5:8-12)
I was looking for a nice online community that might like sharing some spare time speaking about the Word of God and sharing music on Dubtrack/PlugDJ (a user-propelled online radio with queues open to anyone).
“And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.”
“and I pray that the sharing of your faith may become effective for the full knowledge of every good thing that is in us for the sake of Christ.”
"Therefore do not be ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me His prisoner, but share with me in the sufferings for the gospel according to the power of God, who has saved us and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to His own purpose and grace which was given to us in Christ Jesus before time began,"
2 Timothy 1:8-9
I accepted Christ as my saviour around nine years ago, however, I believe that my true revelation of His great gift that he gave was revealed to my heart only a few months ago; a hunger for His Word and a desire to share with others sparked inside-- consuming as blazing flame.
"For our God is a consuming fire."
"“Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord,
“And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?""
I am a Christian because I know what the Lord has done for me, that He is the only one and true God, because He loved me first, and because of a realization that this world has nothing for me. Without the Lord there is nothing that provides a foundation to secure the building of the world, which stands against the forceful winds of ultimate meaning and the (true) pursuit of happiness.
Christ's resurrection after death is the very essence of life, it is what gives us hope and a future beyond what the empty deceit of this world can provide. His life being sacrificed for the purpose of not only showing His grace, but proving it to us. He was the light of men, the truth, the way that we should all follow.
"Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ, who will also confirm you to the end, that you may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of His Son, Jesus Christ our Lord."
1 Corinthians 1:6-10
The God of everything, whom chose to create someone like me and to pay such a price that you did not owe, so that I could know you and speak to you. How can it be, that you chose someone like me to declare your praise for the glory of Your name! - I can’t Believe, Elevation Worship.
"Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new."
"For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him."
"Thanks be to God for His indescribable gift!"
"Therefore I rejoice that I have confidence in you in everything."
2 Corinthians [5:17,21] [9:15] [7:16]
My father is also an evangelist, so he's usually away from home-- traveling all over the world! Though I'll refrain from giving any more details as this is the internet.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
My favorite scripture changes depending on the subject and the more knowledge/revelation of His Word, but these are definitely rich! Also, pretty much the whole book of Ephesians is amazing!
"In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace."
“If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you.”
“that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height— to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God.”
"“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you;
Before you were born I sanctified you;
I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Then said I:
“Ah, Lord God!
Behold, I cannot speak, for I am a youth.”
But the Lord said to me:
“Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’
For you shall go to all to whom I send you,
And whatever I command you, you shall speak.
Do not be afraid of their faces,
For I am with you to deliver you,” says the Lord.
Then the Lord put forth His hand and touched my mouth, and the Lord said to me:
“Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.""
It's honestly mind-boggling to even attempt to grasp the goodness of God towards us! There are so many scriptures in the Bible that address nearly every aspect of life and beyond! I'll stop here or else this post will go on way too long. haha!
"How precious is Your lovingkindness, O God!
Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of Your wings.
They are abundantly satisfied with the fullness of Your house,
And You give them drink from the river of Your pleasures.
For with You is the fountain of life;
In Your light we see light."
All of this being said, I might not be all that active, but that's just life.
P.S. The book of Romans is also a favorite!
“There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin and death. For what the law could not do in that it was weak through the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, on account of sin: He condemned sin in the flesh,” – Romans 8:1-3
